As an electronic musician, DJ or electronic label manager, your first step on this specialized shop will be to personalize your artist or label page. For an insider's take on how the platform works, iMusician invited Steve Mill, music producer and Artist & Industry Relations Manager at Beatport, to share some insights with us.
Why do you need to personalize and optimize your Beatport’s profile?
First, you will need a verified profile and artist page to get your music delivered to Beatport. Even though this is already a great reason, working on your branding is an essential step in your musical career in general — this doesn't necessarily mean that you will need complex pictures or a Pulitzer worth biography. Still, your profile should give an idea of your artistic persona and, most importantly, your music. Check out our guide on how to craft your visual identity and write a killer biography.
Every artist can have a picture of 590x404 size and a biography of up to 2000 characters attached to their profile. Biography is considered any type of description the artist wants to have under their profile. We don’t recommend adding links to social media.
Additionally, it’s possible for artists to link their user profile (aka DJ profile, as Beatport store users) with their artist page in order for all the charts that they create to show up under CHARTS section on their artist profiles.
Alternatively, artists can refer to firstname.lastname@example.org with their requests regarding their artist profiles.
