This module covers a range of essential tips and tactics to help artists, labels, managers and their wider teams to optimise their streaming profiles and understand the marketing and analytics tools offered by each platform. These include features that help promote your releases, monetisation opportunities, useful integrations and a dive into the analytics offered by each platform to better understand your audience.
We look at the different levels of customisation available within the main streaming platforms; look at how to integrate merch and ticketing into them; provide tips for how to build audiences and drive further growth; explore different track highlighting features; and provide an overview of each platform’s strengths.
