As we’ve mentioned before #ONErpmfam, taking advantage of the artist platforms DSP’s offer is a surefire way to accelerate your streaming growth, and stay up-to-date on all of the data points your audience is generating. With this in mind, we felt it best to go over the key aspects of Apple Music For Artists, highlighting exactly what makes it such a phenomenal tool for artists of all sizes.
Shareable Milestones are an engaging and easy-to-use tool that allows artists to communicate the success of their releases throughout their social accounts. Once in-platform, artists will be able to see and download auto-generated assets, perfect for sharing on stories or as posts. As Apple puts it “With just a few taps you can let your fans know about new playlists featuring your songs, how many Shazams you have in a given country or region, and other notable milestones you’ve hit on Apple Music.”
