The next phase after claiming your music profile is to update your artist information. Go to your Music Manager Dashboard, and select the "Update Profile" option from the menu tab.

Update your genre, select all genres of music you play so that you will be available on the popular genres on Discover. Let your fans know a bit about you by adding a bio.

Let your fans know where you will be playing next. They can make your event bookings right from your Artist page. Go to your Music Manager Dashboard, and select the "My Events" option from the menu tab to create or edit your upcoming tour dates.

 

5. Pitch your song to playlists and DJs


So, you released your new song and it is now streaming on Archodia Play, but you feel like something’s missing. The answer is Playlists. Playlists are known to be the fastest way of growing your audience and increasing your streams, as they help you reach people who know about you, and people who don’t, yet.


For this reason, Archodia Play has developed a way that enables artists to directly pitch their songs for curation via Spotlight Hub. You can submit a pitch request for your new release to playlists and DJs, specify its genre, mood & style, and a brief description of your song. Submit your request and you’re good to go!


As part of our upgrade earlier late last year, Archodia Play introduced live "Radio”. This newly introduced feature allows users to not only listen to auto-generated Artists' radios but real Live Radio stations on Archodia Play.


The Play team will review your request and act accordingly. If approved, you will receive an email informing you about the good news, and people following the playlist will receive a push notification!


You can also reach the Play support team on play@archodia.com for assistance with your request.
