A number of websites have been tricking artists into paying for more plays through a method called bot streaming. Here’s what artists NEED to know about these websites.

The consequences of bot streaming can be fatal for an artist’s music. Paying for plays leads to music being taken down from services, their streaming revenues being withheld, and will potentially lead to all of their music being taken down and a ban from their distribution service.

Don’t fall for fake websites offering pay for plays. Make sure that any websites you use offering increased streaming performance are offering legitimate promotion and not artificial streaming which damages all artists on the services and can end your career in its tracks.

Our video below describes what bot streaming is and how you can ensure you avoid it so that your music stays online and reaches your real listeners.
