Sheeko Brandscore graph of the brand’s performance for the influencers-led activity:

It is a win-win situation for all the parties involved: the brand, influencers and also the consumers. Through this activity, the brand can grab the audience attention; the musicians can map the success of their content consumption on the map and flaunt it on Instagram. The social media followers of these artists feel gratified to help their favourite artists gain popularity on the music streaming app.

Unlike a lot of brands who use influencers across categories for amplification, Spotify has avoided any spillage and has worked with only music artists reaching out to the highly targeted audience, who music lovers. This strategy also helps the brand increase the user base and generate meaningful engagement with the audience.
