Note that it says:

"Spotify uses verification to validate the accounts of key partners, brands and individuals that are of the most interest to our users. Unfortunately we do not accept requests from the general public. If you meet the criteria, please answer the following questions to have your account verified. Due to high demand, verification may take up to 6 weeks. Thank you in advance for your patience."

Hey Matt, 

 

That link doesn't work anymore but wondering if you could help. 

 

I'm working for a hotel brand that would like to set up a Spotify account to create playlists (but not play in a physical business location). Can you please send me an updated link as to how to do that?

This link is just taking me to the Spotify homepage. I've been searching for a very long time and can't find out how to do this. PLEASE HELP! All the "help" on these forums go in circles.

Hi Mike, have you found a solution yet? I'm looking for the same here....

Also looking for a solution here. Been looking for months. Anyone know how a brand -- like an agency, a magazine, or a consulting service -- can set up a spotify account? Seems like lots of people would have this question, not sure why it's such a mystery. Hopefully someone out there has some clues?? 

Solution!

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
