PlaylistSupply vs PlaylistMap
How does Playlist Supply work?
Music marketing as an indie artist in 2022 is not easy, but there are some ways to make it easier. One of these ways is reaching out to playlist curators to get on Spotify playlists. These independent playlist curators make up a majority of Spotify playlists and are a crucial way for artists to find new fans and get more streams. Playlist Supply is the best Spotify playlist research tool that helps you get your music onto Spotify Playlists. The idea is simple: enter your criteria into our search bar (i.e. Pop, Hip-Hop, Workout, etc.) and we provide you with a list of Spotify playlists, along with the corresponding contact information of the playlist’s curator.
PlaylistSupply vs PlaylistMap
As the first and leading Spotify playlist data tool and Spotify playlist curator research tool in the world, musicians, record label owners, and artist managers sometimes ask us how PlaylistSupply is different from other similar tools such as PlaylistMap.
Playlist Supply offers users countless ways to search, filter, analyze, and export your playlist curator data. Here are some examples of how PlaylistSupply offers the best ways to get your music onto editorial playlists.
Vetting Playlist Curators
One of the things we at PlaylistSupply pride ourselves on is our vetting process. Spotify removes any songs that are added to playlists with fake followers, so we are very careful to make sure our artists are never at risk.
Playlist Map does not assist with this, making it a risky choice for musicians, record label owners, and artist managers who work very hard to make sure their music gets heard.
Playlist Supply provides artists with a dedicated Playlist Directory, which you can read about here, where Spotify playlists can be saved, organized, and monitored for changes in analytics. PlaylistSupply’s user playlist directory allows you to update your playlist selection and see changes in all of its data points such as playlist followers and popularity.
PlaylistSupply has a huge amount of pre-built playlist search patterns within its playlist research algorithm that separates it from PlaylistMap in search capacity. When running a search on PlaylistMap, musicians will only find a very small fraction of the playlist curator and playlist owner contacts that they will find on PlaylistSupply.
The playlist owner data provided by PlaylistSupply is more detailed, relevant, and abundant, due to its complex and more effective search patterns. We are constantly adding new playlist search patterns that allow musicians to get the most precise results possible.
While PlaylistMap will just search for Instagram and email contacts, PlaylistSupply will also search for playlist curator contact information on other social media networks, like Twitter or Facebook. PlaylistSupply will also extract embedded links from playlist descriptions, which speeds up the user’s research for playlist owner contacts drastically.
More information about our search patterns and how they work is available here.
These search patterns, which Playlist Map lacks, are what give PlaylistSupply more accurate results and data. This allows artists to vet and find better-quality playlists and playlist curators.
PlaylistSupply’s frequent updates also keep it at the forefront of new quality playlists, while PlaylistMap is an outdated imitation of our early original playlist curator research software.
Filtering Data and Search Results
PlaylistSupply provides musicians with a variety of filtering and data points that are unavailable with PlaylistMap and other competitors. Playlist Supply empowers indie artists by providing information about Playlists and Playlist curators’ contact details and allowing sub-searches to further refine searches within PlaylistSupply.
Along with these extra data points, Playlist Supply also enables users to further filter the data and search results in more ways, allowing users to further narrow in on their needs within their search criteria. No other competitor offers these tools!
Exporting & Saving
PlaylistSupply allows users to copy the results table or export them as CSV, excel, or pdf files.
Playlist Map has no such features for playlisting or exporting. In a recent update, Playlist Supply released a new feature that provides every user with their Playlist Directory portal that allows musicians to save playlists from the results table.
PlaylistMap does not have an option to build a playlist directory, nor any way to export playlist curator search results
Price and Value
After copying PlaylistSupply, PlaylistMap sought to undercut the original software by providing a cheap imitation for a cheaper price. PlaylistMap and PlaylistSupply are similar in price, however, PlaylistSupply provides substantially more value through its more developed software, responsive support team, and vibrant community and blog resources.
PlaylistMap is based on a credit system, where $9/month allows 20 playlist curator contacts, and $20 allows 100 playlist curator contacts.
Playlist Supply simply offers a $19.99/month fee for unlimited contacts. This shows that we allow and trust our users to make the best of our platform as they see fit. After all, any tool is only as good as the person wielding it.
PlaylistSupply vs. PlaylistMap in Conclusion
Ultimately, there is no competition to PlaylistSupply when it comes to Spotify playlist curator data research tools and playlist owner outreach. PlaylistSupply has an infinitely better value when compared to PlaylistMap.
PlaylistSupply provides a much more advanced and effective playlist owner research tool that blows PlaylistMap out of the water, and PlaylistSupply has a robust platform where its community is actively engaged in the constant development of the software and its customer service.
When it comes to playlist curator outreach and research for playlist owner contacts, PlaylistSupply is easily the best way to discover, organize, vet, and contact playlist owners.
