**Guest post by One Submit, the ultimate music submission platform.
"Your song is finally done and you’re ready to get it heard and spread it out in the universe.
In today's music industry, everyone has access to anything in the music industry and there's many places to submit your music and get it heard, from social media, music submission platforms, Spotify playlists, music blogs and different music channels helping artists.
If you're an independent artist and currently promoting your music by yourself without the help of a label, the process can be sometimes hard and take valuable time and effort. The purpose of this article is to give you some tips and links on how and where you can promote your music easily and efficiently.
Just before you start contacting the websites listed below, make sure your tracks are mixed and mastered and at the right volume. You don't want listeners to experience a drop in volume when they listen to your track.
Also it is essential for you to know what kind of music you are making and what’s your musical genre and subgenre.
If you're producing indie rock and submitting to folk playlists, you are reducing your chances of success dramatically. If you’re not sure about this, do some research on an artist similar to your musical genre.
Here's a list of the best websites to promote your music:
One Submit is a relatively new platform with an easy to use music submission process. It was created by artists and it is aimed to get results and save valuable time for artists.
On One Submit you can submit music to Spotify playlists, online radio, YouTube music channels, record labels, music blogs and TikTok influencers.
Submitting music is based on genres and size of playlist or channel.
It’s a self service paid platform and for every submission you will get a review by a music curator within your choice of music genre, if they like your music, they will add it to their playlists.

+Playlisting and How Indie Artists Should be Using It
MusicTo is a platform and playlist curator which accepts playlist submissions in different sub genres.
