Never bothered with it, does not seem worth the time & effort to me...YMMV

" As of January 2019, Spotify reports that it pays out between $0.00331 and $0.00437 per stream to rights holders."

To put it in perspective...My best earning Library cue do date = approx $750 in PRO royalties...so to earn that at the upper rate on Spotify would take 171,624 streams

How many would you get if you could get onto said playlists ? Some of my music is on Spotify because the Library put it there but not even enough streams to register after several years.

What Dolphin said, and for the same reason. If anything, I promote Bandcamp.

Putting out music on Spotify IS promotion. To put much effort into promoting promotion makes little sense. Just write, release, submit, forget, repeat :D

Bandcamp is the only outlet I've found that seems to give a shit about artists. I put music there and on my website.
