Spotify is the leading audio streaming site on the internet. It boasts of having 356 million active users per month, hosts over 70 million tracks with over 4 billion playlists, and has paid out more than 21 billion in Euros according to their stats. With these huge numbers, who would not want to dip into it to gain some profits?

If you are not an artist who has music to upload on the site, don’t worry. You can still get a slice of this money pie. As long as you have the patience and the taste for curating wonderful music, you can definitely earn some cash on the platform. The only capital you will need is your playlist follower count.

The number of followers on your Spotify playlist matters

Just a disclaimer, Spotify does not directly pay playlist creators, nor do they encourage this method of monetizing your account. Still, this is a way for you to make money using the platform.

Having a lot of playlist followers and Spotify playlist likes means you can monetize your account. New artists and their managers will want to include their songs in your playlists for them to gain exposure and Spotify plays. These paid placements can earn you about $30 a month per song that you add to your playlist on Spotify. You just need about 7,000 followers to be able to demand this much.

These are the steps to view Spotify playlist followers on your account:

How to view the followers on your playlist

It is really interesting to know who exactly follows each of your playlists. You may see what other type of music the person who follows your playlist listens to. You may even connect with them and talk about songs that you can add to your existing playlists or create an entirely new playlist that will gain new followers.

Unfortunately, Spotify does not show the usernames of the people who follow your playlists. You can only see the number of followers for each list. This certainly limits your information of who likes your curated music. But there is a way to guess who your playlist followers are.

You can check the names of your followers on your Spotify profile. Though this method does not show which playlists each user follows, you will at least have an idea who listens to your playlists. This is how you can see the followers on your profile using a phone or computer:
