How do I know if my Spotify pitch was successful?

Congratulations on publishing your music on Spotify. The next step is to make sure the release is successful! That means getting into playlists and being discovered by new listeners. To do this, you'll need to understand how the Spotify for Artists reporting dashboard works. First off, here's what happens when your release goes live:




You will receive an email with a link to accept the terms of the agreement. You must accept the terms of the agreement before your release is distributed.


In order to accept the terms of your agreement, you will need a Spotify account. You will receive an email with a link to accept the terms of the agreement when it is available. You must click on this link in order to accept the terms of your release. If you do not accept the terms of your release, you will no longer be able to stream music on Spotify.


Within 24 hours of accepting your contract, you will receive a confirmation email that your release has been successfully delivered to Spotify. This email will also contain an online portal where you can check whether reports are showing numbers for your release. If reports are not present, then your release has not yet been published on Spotify. It can take up to two weeks for finished releases to become available depending on your release date choice.


As soon as you accept the contract, your release will be sent to Spotify. It takes between 2-3 days for your release to appear in the dashboard. The dashboard is updated every 24 hours, so if you don't see numbers within a few days of accepting the contract then it's likely that something went wrong with delivery or processing.

Not all members can see reports on their releases. Only artists and producers have access to this information, not managers or labels (unless they are also artists). If someone has given you access to their account but doesn't want people to know where they live, then don't worry! They'll still be able to log into their own personal Spotify account and keep everything private from others using it too (just make sure not everyone knows about how many times someone else has listened).


Depending on how many days have passed since your release was published on Spotify, you may or may not see any activity reflected in the reports (listening activity, playlist adds/removals, statistics). To begin viewing listening data, filter by this week’s date. The reporting dashboard will update every 24 hours with new data, so you can return tomorrow to view new information. Please note that streaming data takes approximately 2-3 days to appear in the Spotify for Artists dashboard.

Spotify has a two-week lag in reporting and will not report on listening activity until two weeks after a release is published. As well as this delay, there is also no way to know if your track got added or removed from playlists at all unless you check them manually or receive an email from the curators of those playlists themselves!


Make sure you read the papers!

It's important to read the papers you receive, because they contain important information about your release. After you submit a new release through Spotify, you will receive an email with a link to accept the terms of the agreement. Once accepted, within 24 hours of accepting your contract, you will receive a confirmation email from Spotify confirming that they have received it and that it has been added to their platform. If possible (and if it doesn't violate any terms), try listening to your track on Spotify after submitting it and before signing anything!
