How to collect 100% of your Spotify royalties (video)

If you are an artist or content creator on Spotify, there are several steps you can take to ensure that you collect all your royalties:

  1. Sign up with a digital distributor: You will need to have your music distributed to Spotify in order to start earning royalties. There are several digital distributors that you can use, such as DistroKid, TuneCore, and CD Baby.

  2. Register with a performing rights organization (PRO): A PRO like ASCAP, BMI, or SESAC can collect performance royalties for you. Make sure to register all of your music with your PRO.

  3. Ensure that your metadata is accurate: Your metadata, including your song titles, artist name, and album artwork, should be accurate and up to date. This will ensure that your music is easily searchable and can be properly attributed to you.

  4. Encourage your fans to listen to your music on Spotify: The more streams your music receives on Spotify, the more royalties you will earn. You can promote your music on social media, in emails to your fans, and on your website.

  5. Monitor your royalties: Make sure to regularly check your Spotify for Artists dashboard to see how much money you are earning from streams. You can also use third-party services like SoundExchange to track your royalties from digital streaming services.

By taking these steps, you can maximize your earnings from Spotify and ensure that you are collecting all of the royalties that you are entitled to.
