Have you claimed your page yet? Claiming your page gives you more control over your page, the verified blue check mark, allows you to view more information about your streams, followers, and so much more. This post breaks down everything you need to know about claiming your page(s) on each major platform…
How To Claim Your Label/Artist Pages
Beatport Artist Page
Every artist can get an artist page Beatport. The requirements are basic but very important. First, the photograph MUST BE a professional artist photograph 590×404 JPG, and you should also include an artist bio. If these two requirements are met and you have music being sold on Beatport, then you’re good to go!
Beatport Label Page
Similarly to the Artist Page, you can have your label profile updated too. In this case, you’ll need your picture requirement for Tile Image (500×500). // If you’re interested in updating yours, click here.
Google Play Music
If you’ve chosen to distribute on Google Play through Symphonic Distribution, you can claim your store page for free, saving you the $25 fee for page creation.
- Visit YouTube for Artists
- Search for your artist page
- Not there? — Please make sure you’ve opted to distribute on Google Play.
Verify Artist/Band Account
The verified artist program is becoming a part of Spotify for Artists. All artists who have access to their Spotify for Artists profile will automatically get the verified check on their artist page. Fan Insights are now Spotify for Artists and they’ve integrated everything into one platform. You can also manage your profile through Spotify for Artists.
If your album is incorrectly listed on another artist page or you see an album credited to you that does not belong to you, please go to this article.
