    Pre-Saves and Pre-Adds - Do they still matter?

    Pre-Saves and Pre-Adds - Do they still matter?

    Are Pre-Saves still worth it? What about Pre-Adds? How do I set up a pre-add without paying for it?

    I’ve had so many questions and seen lots of debates about pre-saves and pre-adds. In this video I weigh in on the debate and share some examples of how to collect pre-saves in Spotify in the day leading up to an album release, I also cover instant gratification tracks in Apple Music and iTunes.

    If you have the Spotify app on your phone, computer or TV you can watch the video version of this podcast. For anyone else I would like to see the video version you can find it on my YouTube channel - https://www.youtube.com/askmikewarner

    Amazon Music Editorial Playlist Pitching - Artists Can Pitch Songs in the Amazon Music for Artists App

    Amazon Music Editorial Playlist Pitching - Artists Can Pitch Songs in the Amazon Music for Artists App

    Artists have long been asking for a way to pitch music for editorial playlists and programming consideration on Amazon Music, similar to how they pitch on platforms such as Spotify for artists.

    The wait is over! Artists can now pitch their music directly within the Amazon Music for Artists App. Songs can be pitched in advance or up to 14 days after they are released. This update went live in the App Store on October 27, 2021. Make sure you download the latest update and happy pitching!

    One instant benefit is that all followers of the artist will receive a notification on the device the day the song is released. Additionally there are hints that this may provide benefits beyond the opportunity to be considered for playlists. For example, adding additional tags to your music could help it to go into rotation across radio within Amazon Music, resulting in more listeners (and the right listeners).

I Quit My Day Job!

Hey everyone, this podcast is super helpful and very easy to understand. I’ve listened to some of the podcast episodes a few times to just soak in all of the information! If you are serious about growing revenue on Spotify with your music then you have to buy Mike Warner’s book “Work Hard Playlist Hard”! I have really grown my following and I quit my day job to focus on my music!
