    I think my advice is to be realistic with your playlist promotion. I had much better results going with independent curators than going with PlaylistPush or other such similar services that require $100’s of investment. For example, the best two curators I have worked with was @xtbmusic (Music submissions via their Instagram at )

    Their service was only about $15-20 but they delivered me a modest organic stream rate of a few thousand a month. Anything making bold claims and wanting large sums is never going to end well, go smaller and realistic to get better value for your money,

    It is a good strategy to submit your song to curators but sometimes it is not worth it.
    Most of those playlists accepting submissions and having thousands of followers do not actually have a lot of listeners. So the result you will get will be close to zero.
    It is better to focus on a few good playlists with real listeners.

    There is a free tool to check if a Spotify playlists has real listeners:
    This could be usefull to check before spending time pitching your song to playlists.
