If you know me personally, you may have noticed that I have a passion for music. I am always keen on going to music festivals to see live gigs.

That’s why I am a paid Spotify user since day one.

When I am working, I am always listening to some music for getting into the zone.

I started to create some playlist for focusing on my work during my coding sessions. During the process, I followed a growth strategy based on SEO.

Nowadays, I am contacted by artists themselves to add some music, was interview on specialized websites and even getting paid to promote artists on my playlists.

My SEO Growth Hack Checklist for Spotify

  1. I choose a keyword: Mixtape
  2. Second keyword: coding
  3. When you hit 50 sounds, create a new playlist by adding a new keyword.

On my case I have:

  • Mixtape for coding
  • Rock Mixtape for coding
  • Movies Mixtape for coding
  • Electro Mixtape for coding

Simple right?

All my playlists are available on my website.

Design template for your playlists

Famous Youtubers spend hours to create the thumbnails of their videos.

In my case, I used Figma with nice colored gradients.

Here is the Figma Template. If you want to use it, feel free to duplicate
