Getting your mixtape on Spinrilla, while simple, can be difficult for most artists.
If you visit their website, there are no clear instructions on how to upload your mixtape. All you will see is a list of mixtapes that are already uploaded.
So, how do you get your mixtape uploaded then?
Well, there are a few different ways to get your mixtape uploaded on Spinrilla and we’re going to talk about each one below:
- Apply for an Artist Account
- Use our Spinrilla Upload Service to get uploaded quickly
- Build your brand and get invited
- Network with the staff or someone who has an upload account on Spinrilla
Apply For A Spinrilla artist account
Applying for an artist account with Spinrilla is the most simple method.
You simply go to their artist application, fill in the required fields, and submit your application.
The secret is to follow-up if you don’t hear anything back. I highly recommend following up with them every few days to get an update on the status of your artist application process. This is the method we used and we got our artist account within a few months.
Although this method is the most simple, it’s also one of the methods that don’t seem to work as well as it used to.
This could be due to Spinrilla getting so many artist submissions that they can’t keep up with demand or maybe they limit the number of new accounts they approve to keep their platform exclusive – I don’t know.
What I do know is that if you’re serious about getting your mixtape on Spinrilla, you’re going to need to put in a lot more effort than simply filling out a form and hoping they pick you.
Pay someone to upload it
Paying someone to upload your mixtape to Spinrilla if you don’t already have an artist account is the quickest way to get your mixtape uploaded to Spinrilla.
This method is extremely useful if you don’t want to wait months/years for your artist application to be approved.
The downside to this method is that you’ll have to pay every time you want a mixtape uploaded. If you would like to upload mixtapes often (every month), these payments can add up over time – especially if you’re just getting your music career started.
However, if you have income coming in and can afford it, it’s a lot more efficient to simply pay someone until you get your artist account approved.
How much does it cost?
To get your mixtape uploaded to Spinrilla will cost about $60 if you use our Spinrilla Mixtape Upload Service and gives you the opportunity to get your mixtape on the front page of Spinrilla.
Build Your Brand
Another way to get your mixtape uploaded on Spinrilla is to simply build your brand let it get uploaded organically.
This is the slowest way to go about getting your mixtape uploaded, but also the most organic and natural.
If you’re interested in uploading your music on Spinrilla simply because you think it will make you look cool or more important – you should absolutely follow this method.
However, if you want to get your music on Spinrilla because you’re trying to reach a specific goal and you believe Spinrilla will help, you should look at one of the other methods for getting uploaded to Spinrilla.
Network with Spinrilla
Networking with Spinrilla, like networking with music artists, will open opportunities. In this case, it can help you get an artist account and allow you to upload your music.
If you can form some kind of win-win relationship with them, you will have no problem getting your music on their platform.
If you try to build a relationship with them just so you can get your music uploaded on Spinrilla – you won’t get very far.
I’m a big believer that the quickest way to succeed with networking is by adding value to the person you’re trying to network with. In this case, we’re talking about an organization.
How do you network with Spinrilla?
Well, since Spinrilla is a company and not an individual, you’ll have to approach it differently than if you we’re trying to network with a person.
The first thing I would do is Google search or Twitter search Spinrilla in an attempt to find information about the owner or staff members. If you can find an individual, you’ll network with them just like you would anyone else.
However, if you can’t find an individual – I’d start by reaching out to them via email and seeing if they want free help with managing support emails or something you feel comfortable helping with.
Getting your music or mixtape on any helpful platform will not be easy.
Most mixtape hosting platforms exist solely because of their exclusivity in allowing and monitoring mixtape uploads.
Don’t be afraid to send them a respectful and well-written email asking them for extra information about getting your artist account and best utilizing their platform. Sometimes you won’t get a response, other times you may be getting all of the information necessary.
