Becoming a verified artist at Spotify has never been easier! Until now you had to have 250 followers but now the offer is open to all artists and labels.
It’s easy to get yourself verified.
Go to the following link and answer the questions that will ensure that you are authorized to access. A few days later you are a verified artist. You can tell by the small blue check mark on your profile.
There are several reasons for this. Probably the most important ones are the playlists. Basically you can also be included in playlists as a non-verified artist, but the chance is much smaller. If you are verified, you will be taken more seriously, rather taken up by algorithms or even selected by the spotify curators.
As a verified artist you can also make use of various features.
For example, you have the possibility to insert an artist profile picture or your biography. You can also add your tour dates and even your merchandise.
You can also share playlists directly with your fans. You have the possibility to place songs, albums or playlists on top of your profile (Artist’s Pick).
Particularly valuable are the detailed analyses of your Top 1000 songs, with which you can find out exactly who is listening to your music.
