Becoming a verified artist on Spotify is essential, as this lets your fans know that your artist profile belongs to you. Spotify verification is a form of authentication. It is more than just getting a little blue tick by your name.
Spotify verification opens the door to additional features like profile control, and a range of analytics and insights, designed to help you understand your audience. It is also a medium through which your music can be submitted for editorial playlist consideration.
Are you having issues verifying and claiming your Spotify artist profile?
Below are easy steps to verify and claim your artist profile on Spotify.
1) GET YOUR SONG UPLOADED TO SPOTIFY
Ensuring your music is live on Spotify is the first and most important step.
This can be easily done by any “music distribution company”.
A music distribution company is a firm set up to help artists deliver their music to various digital music platforms.
2) LOG IN TO SPOTIFY
Claiming your profile on Spotify is impossible if you don’t have a Spotify user account. That’s an account you can use to listen to various music on Spotify.
If you have one, then sign in. If you don’t have one, you should sign up.
Visit www.spotify.com to get this done.
If Spotify isn’t available in your country, make use of a web VPN to create an account.
3) CLAIM AND GET ACCESS TO YOUR SPOTIFY FOR ARTIST
To claim your artist profile, just log on to https://artists.spotify.com/ and click on ‘Get Access’.
If you are already logged into your ‘Spotify User Account’, just Add Artist by searching for your profile using your ‘Artist Name’ or ‘Spotify Artist URL’.
4) VERIFY AND SUBMIT
After you must have selected your artist profile, verify using your Twitter account. Then just hit submit and you’re all set! Pretty easy, right?
5) WAIT FOR APPROVAL
It can take a few days for Spotify to give you access but once you’re in you’ll be able to play around with a bunch of new functionalities
- Pin an album, song or playlist to the top of your Spotify profile
- Share your tour dates
- Add custom images for Artist’s Pick featured items
