Adding your music to Spotify for all to hear and generate revenue is actually easier than your may think, plus it’s totally free.
For years now, RouteNote has been helping hundreds of thousands of independent artists share million of songs to online stores and streaming services, free of major labels or unfair royalty cuts. Getting your music to and making money on the world largest platforms couldn’t be easier with RouteNote. Within just a few days, we can upload your music to Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, YouTube Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, TIDAL and many more. RouteNote’s partners don’t just stop at stores and streaming services. We also work with a number of social media platforms to help artists monetize content on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, SoundCloud and TikTok.
To get started, simply sign up for a free account at RouteNote, upload your tracks, enter the metadata and artwork, select the stores, then choose whether you’d like Free or Premium Distribution. Free Distribution doesn’t cost a penny, while you keep 85% of the revenue generated. Premium Distribution costs a small fee, while you keep 100% of the revenue. Once you’ve distributed your releases, you aren’t locked in. At any time, you can switch between tiers or takedown your release entirely. It’s important to us that the artist stays in control of their music. You always keep 100% of the rights to your music.
Now that your release has been finalised, it’ll be sent to our dedicated moderation team to ensure the release is looking and sounding perfect (usually within around 72 hours) before sending it on to our partner stores. After your release has been approved, it’ll start popping up in major stores in around 2-3 days.
As your release starts picking up steam around the world, revenue will be paid into your RouteNote account. This can be quickly and securely deposited into a PayPal or bank account. Monthly statistics and earnings breakdown exactly how much each track is generating in each store. This is key data when you create your next campaign.
