iTunes =/= Apple Music
iTunes = buying
Apple music = streaming
Delete the song from library
If you purchased the song from iTunes, delete it from your library completely (not “remove download”), search for the song on apple music and add it to the playlist. Do not play iTunes file your streams won’t be counted.
Downloading only AM file
If you didn’t purchase the song you can search the song you’re looking for and click on + sign. The song will be added to your library. By clicking on cloud sign later, you’re downloading the song to listen while offline. You can listen to it offline and your streams will be added when you come back online.
But don’t download if you can stay online.
All the songs should be AM files
When adding songs to the playlists, make sure all of them have + sign or cloud sign next to the songs.
Use single focused playlists
Add 1-2-3 songs ONLY(not more) in between the single in your playlist. Playlists should be between 1.5 and 2 hours long and don’t forget to rotate between official playlist like “Little Mix Essentials” and single focused playlists.
Little Mix Essentials
(Repeat the cycle with different playlists)
WHILE STREAMING THE ALBUM, STREAM IT TOP TO BOTTOM WITHOUT SKIPPING/FORWARDING/REWINDING LIKE THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME
Multiple non little mix artists are not required in your playlists. Add 2-3 but do not repeat the same artist.
Do NOT loop
Never loop songs, playlist or albums. It is bot-like behavior and your streams will get filtered out. Make sure all the buttons look white in color, not red.
Do NOT mute
Your volume should be at least at 50% on the app. Plug in earphones if you don’t want to hear the music.
Take advantage of the playlisting given. Always stream the song from the popular playlists made by AM to raise its position. This will give the song more exposure. Avoid listening to other songs in those playlists since they’re competition.
You can always download the apple music on your device from play store. It doesnt matter if your device is not iOS. Apple music is very important since it is a paid platform thus has more weightage on all the charts. This app also gives more general public exposure. So always take advantage of free trials. You can give a lot of streams in 3-6 months of free trial. Follow the rules below since the playlist making is different.
