Streaming Marketing

Market music on streaming services with pre-saves, advertising, playlisting and analytics

   Watch Promo


This is a wide ranging module covering retargeting strategy, pre-save and pre-adds, what they are and how and when to use them. We look at which companies provide tools to help you build your pre-save campaign, and how to communicate them to fans, how to integrate them into a wider campaign, and how to set your objectives for using these tools to grow your audiences.

We also cover advertising within the main streaming services, including how to set objectives, understanding ROI, a look at Spotify's Ad Studio and a guide to the best creative for your ads. We take a look inside Deezer's sponsored songs, and how advertising can help to generate both algorithmic and editorial growth.

We also go in depth into Chartmetric, which is a very useful tool that can help you to understand how to find and engage with fans wherever they are in the world; and how this can help you to find and pitch to key playlists.

We explore how to track streaming performance over time, how to identify and build relationships with key influencers and how to improve your playlist pitching to them. We also look into how Spotify's playlist submission tool works.

Finally we dive into engagements above and beyond playlists and explore the 'Dry Streams Paradox' which has been widely covered by Music Ally (our bonus reading material will give you more information on what that's all about).
