Just started setting up distribution for a few tracks after being inspired by the potential of Spotify (downloaded it for the 1st time the other day) as highlighted by Austin Darbo and the new hype around self-distribution.
Anyway, decided to try one of the free ones (RouteNote) and see how that works first. Have clicked to release only on Spotify and Itunes rather than a whole bag of platforms.
Anyone on here had experience of digital distribution process and anyone know how to get your tunes on playlists or maximise your ish once it makes it onto Spotify or itunes? I really don't have time or inclination to be posting up everywhere tryna get people to listen to it so thinking about PR..
What's worked for you lot?
