With over 20 million tracks on Spotify, three hours of YouTube videos uploaded every minute and new streaming platform launches every few months, it can be difficult to design a smart digital music strategy that ensures your artist can be heard above the noise. Although it’s difficult to navigate what is a complex and increasingly fragmented landscape on streaming services, there are still lots of opportunities available for new and niche artists.
This workshop will discuss these current issues as well as advise on how streaming services can be used to successfully reach your target audience. We will cover key data and market analysis as well as insider information on some of the most popular brands on YouTube and Spotify. There are limited places so please RSVP as early as possible.

About Slice! Founder, Justin Barker.
Justin began his career in the music industry at Universal Music in 2006, working across a variety of digital roles including digital operations, advertising trafficking and product development.
After building the Digster playlist brand in the UK in 2012 & organically growing its Spotify profile follower base to over 100k, Justin became curation manager full time in 2014, the first role of its kind within a record label set up.
In this role, the playlists he created amassed over 1/2 million followers in less than 12 months and have formed the foundations of Universal’s ongoing playlist initiatives in the UK.
In December 2014, he left Universal to found Slice! a consultancy company specialising in marketing strategies on streaming music services.
