If you own a large Spotify playlist, then you could earn money with a company called Playlist Push.
No, the company won’t make you rich nor will you make a ton, but it’s an okay way to make a few dollars on the side only if you meet the company’s requirements.
In today’s review, I wanted to talk about Playlist Push.
How much can you make?
Is it a scam?
What do other people think?
As in all of my reviews, I’m 100% honest, only recommending what I feel is worth your time.
How Playlist Push Works
If you’re accepted as a curator, you will be asked to review new music and see if it fits in your playlist. You do not have to add the song to your playlist to get paid, however. The company states that it’s a great way to find new music, all while getting paid.
Every time someone runs a campaign that targets your genre, you will receive a song invite, in which you can, again, add to your playlist, but it isn’t required. You can also pass on it if you don’t feel like reviewing it, either. Depending on your genre and the campaigns being run, the number of songs you receive will fluctuate.
To determine your “genre,” the company’s software will be matched to your list to auto detect which song matches your targeted following.
If you do decide to review the song, then you will let the artist know what you did and/or didn’t like about the song. If you decide to add the song to your playlist, let them know why. The same can be said if you were not to add it. The company seems to want constructive feedback so that you can stay in good graces.
You are not required to review every song you listen to nor do you have to listen to the song in its entirety. The artist pays to send you a song, so all they ask is for value and feedback.
How Much Can You Make With Playlist Push?
As a curator, you will get paid for every song you review, typically in the $1.25 to $15+ per song range. This amount will depend on the number of listeners you have as well as your activity.
According to the site, you will receive a “Reputation Score,” which will determine your song payment.
The more active your followers are and the number of followers you have will greatly impact your song price.
Getting Qualified and Signing Up
Unfortunately, not everyone can sign up, as the company does have very strict sign-up qualifications.
To sign up, you must meet the qualifications, with no exceptions.
For your playlist followers, you must have at least 1,000 followers per playlist. Your followers can’t come through bots or a paid service. They must be gained organically.
Of these followers, you must have a minimum of 30 active monthly listeners per playlist or 1%.
Even if you meet these requirements, however, they will not accept the following playlist types:
- movie playlists
- playlists that constantly change the titles
- playlists for a specific song, band, album, etc
- playlists geared toward a specific decade
- sub for sub playlists
- playlists with the words “follow me” in it
If you meet these strict guidelines, then you can apply, however, it’s only open to North America and Europe residents. Your account must be linked to your official Spotify account.
The company used to pay out via PayPal but has since ceased this method.
As of the writing, the company pays via Transferwise, which will transfer the money directly into your bank account.
What Others Are Saying
Most of what I read review-wise came from the artists, not the curators. A lot of people who used the service didn’t like the results they saw when they invested hundreds. I read so many times that they invested $500+ only to see 1,000 plays. Many said it wasn’t worth it.
As for the curators, however, I couldn’t find much, maybe because the qualifications are tough. Those I did find just said it was tough to get accepted.
Final Thoughts4/10Playlist Push seems to cater to a very specific audience, so honestly, 99% of you, including myself, won’t qualify. Even if you do, they seem to be very strict with their curators, which can be stressful staying active.
The company is 100% legit, but you won’t make a ton. As mentioned, the amount you make will depend on your following and how active they are.
If you qualify, why not go through the process of getting added. If not, there are many other ways to make money. It’s not a big deal.
That’s going to wrap it up for now.
