Company profile and verification

Newbie

I would like to know whether there is an option to create a company account on Spotify and whether there are special conditions for brands / companies.

I haven't found anything on the Spotify page, nor could Google help me. At the time it seems to me as if there was no difference between creating a profile for personal use and creating a Spotify account for business use.

How do I make sure that no one creates a fake account with the Brand name and how can I authenticate, that I am the "real" brand.

 

I know Facebook has an authentification process brands can do in order to verify your acount and get a mark as a verified brand account. 

It seems as if there was the same option for Spotify Accounts as seen for Coca Cola. See attachements

 

 

But I cannot find any information about that

Thank you for your support!c

 

Best, Ivana

The following guide will help companies create their own Spotify profile:

 

Spotify changed the way verification works back in 2017. Right now only artist pages can be verified. Companies and celebrities can make their own Spotify profile, and it will work with all of the regular features, it just won't have a blue check mark next to the username. You can read more on this here: https://artists.spotify.com/blog/simplifying-artist-verification

 

Spotify also changed the way usernames are created. Usernames are randomly generated, but you should still be able to change the display name that displays on the profile to your company name.

Using the Spotify desktop app, you should also be able to upload a company logo to use as the profile picture for the account.

When making a playlist you can chose a custom title, write a description, and even upload your own custom playlist image: https://support.spotify.com/article/personalize-playlists/

 

Spotify has some recommendations for brand playlists: https://support.spotify.com/article/brand-playlists/

 

If you are looking to embed a Spotify follow button or embed your playlists on the company website, you can look into this: https://developer.spotify.com/documentation/widgets/

 

If you need to shorten a Spotify playlist URL link to make it easier to type in all you need to do is copy and paste the link at this website and it will use Spotify's official URL shortener. https://bitly.com

 

You can also create a Spotify Code which is a barcode that users can scan on the search page in the Spotify app to go directly to your playlist, profile, album, etc. You can get this barcode by going into the Spotify app and going to the share menu. You can also create a Spotify code by going here: https://www.spotifycodes.com

Just follow the instructions.

These are the types of accounts that Spotify can verify:

Hello,

I did this for my company months ago and no response. Is there a contact email for the department that deals with these applications?

Hello Alex19,
Has this been resolved in the meantime?
I'm asking because I sent a similar request on behalf of my company last month and also haven't heard anything.

Regards
K.S.

I have not heard anything yet no. Have you?

Hi Alex19! No, sadly I haven't heard anything either. I've also reviewed the steps as described at the top of this thread in order to check if I have missed anything, but as far as I can determine I have followed the instructions without exception.
I have concluded that there is a significant delay in the verfication process, because the claim that the process lasts 3-4 weeks is not accurate. I am now in week 10 and still have not heard anything. It seems we'll have to stay patient.

Have you ever got response? I'm also sending emails to all kinds of different addresses, but don't get any response.

Hello!
Yes, We got our verification at last. It took quite some time, though...

Does anyone have a contact info for someone who deals with these requests? I'm in the same boat as many others on this thread.

Hey @MattSuda,

I can't open the link you posted. So I can't follow the instructions to create a company account. 

It would be great if you can send me a new link or tell me what ist the mistake.

 

Thanks for your help.
