Spotify URIs of tracks, albums and artists are in the following format, respectively:

spotify:track:7mt6teY5zF4pz5wlWRU6w4
spotify:album:1nrDZQLT9EfFArdk9oSCxQ
spotify:artist:7Ey4PD4MYsKc5I2dolUwbH

The easiest way to get the Spotify URI of your track is to use Spotify desktop client. Click on the vertical ellipsis button next to the track and select "Copy Spotify URI" menu. You can also use the "Copy Track Link" menu, Streamify will accept that too.

Check out the following screencast on how to do that.

This strategy is suitable for tracks that has been just released, or have been released for some time but still have less than 1,000 plays. The actual plays count for these tracks is not shown in Spotify, so you don't actually know how many times the track has been played.

A good approach is to start slowly, with a few hundred plays per day and then gradually increase the volume as your track gains plays and popularity. Spotify and distributors are extremely sensitive to sudden changes in tracks' daily plays and may pull your album from its catalogue if you throw too many plays at one track. For example, if a track that has less than 1,000 plays and is not popular suddenly starts getting 20,000 plays per day, Spotify may take the album down for investigation. It's not that there is anything wrong with this, it seems they have some kind of automated alarm system in place, that monitors daily plays and raises (false) alarms. We recommend going for no more than 5,000 plays per day for new tracks.

Here you can see an example plays distribution for a successful rise above 1,000 plays and gain some popularity.

Note that the popularity and plays count are estimated, based on our experience so far. Actual numbers may vary.
Here is an example chart of a track's actual plays count, as shown in our Spotify statistics service. The plays count is taken directly from Spotify, meaning that this is exactly what plays the track has received.

 

 

If the track is a part of an album, then it's a good idea to run a separate (smaller) campaign targeting also the other tracks of this album. Otherwise it would look rather strange that one track is receiving quite some daily plays and the other tracks are getting nothing. Spotify is also looking out for such discrepancies and may pull such albums for investigation. The same applies to the whole artist discography. A good strategy is to balance all tracks, even with some smaller number of daily plays.

This strategy is suitable for tracks that have been around for a while and already have good reputation and a steady daily plays count. The goal of this strategy is to further increase the popularity of the track, thus influencing most people to choose to play this track. Also, more plays bring more royalties, which with our prices cam pay off for the entire campaign.

Regardless of the fact that a track is already established and has good popularity and plays count, Spotify is still sensitive about sudden changes in tracks' audience and may pull the album from its catalogue if you throw too many plays at it at once and disturb its normal/expected daily trend. It's not that there is anything wrong with this, it seems they have some kind of automated alarm system in place, that monitors daily plays and raises (false) alarms. We recommend starting with up to 10,000 plays per day and then gradually increase.

A good start is to see the current number of daily plays the track receives and to add half of that. For instance, if your track is currently getting around 1,000 plays per day, it's good to start with an additional 500-800 daily plays and then gradually increase.

Here you can see an example plays distribution for an established track to get additional popularity.

If the track is a part of an album, and the other tracks are getting much less daily plays than this track, then it's a good idea to run a separate (smaller) campaign targeting also those other tracks. Otherwise it would look rather strange that one track is receiving a huge amount of daily plays and the other tracks are getting much less. Spotify is also looking out for such discrepancies and may pull such albums for investigation. The same applies to the whole artist discography. A good strategy is to balance all tracks, even with some smaller number of daily plays.
