What is Spotify Advertising?
Spotify is the largest streaming music service in Australia with 7.7 million users, and a report by MusicWatch suggests approximately 5.6 million Australians (that’s 26% of the population) listened to podcasts on a weekly basis. Globally the company has grown to 356 million users globally with 158 million subscribers.
Though Spotify has been around since 2011, it didn’t introduce the opportunity to create and share ads on its platform until 2017 and since COVID-19 hit, we have seen online entertainment platforms such as Netflix, Binge, Stan, Spotify and podcasts skyrocket in popularity.
The Spotify Ad Studio interface operates a lot like the ads managers on other platforms such as Pinterest Ads and Twitter Ads.
What kind of advertising campaigns can you run on Spotify
and who will likely hear them?
Given the targetting abilities available to advertisers on Spotify, we can see it working well with many audiences (especially 25-34 year olds who make up 29% of the listening audience, though 19% of listeners are 55+ years old) but we can see it working particularly well with:
- Markets where you know there is a lot of drive time/commuters
- Health & Lifestyle
What does Spotify Advertising cost?
Our packages for getting started with Spotify Advertising are listed below, but in terms of ad spend you can technically launch a Spotify Advertising campaign for a minimum of ad spend of just $250. We would suggest $1000 as a minimum spend being more suitable as it will give you more budget to test and measure with, especially in the early days, but this is still a lot cheaper than radio advertising.
For that you could reach around 22-26k people in Australia at a cost of around $0.043 per view (pretty cheap!) however like other ad platforms, it’s an auction, so this is only a very rough guide.

Spotify Advertising Case Studies
Hear from our Social Media Customers
The outcomes of working with Creative Collective have been very good and are achieving results. We would like to discuss extending our monthly agreement as we are very happy with the work that has been undertaken to date.
Port Stephens Tourism
“Would highly recommend The Creative Collective. We own a small dental practice in NSW and The Creative Collective have been instrumental for all our social media and paid advertising and SEO needs. Easy to work with, very informative and regular feedback regarding ads/campaigns. We’ve been working together for the past 12 months and I’m sure this winning relationship will continue for the foreseeable future.
“I used The Creative Collective for designing social media pages and strategies, and for training myself and my staff. All of the work that they have delivered has been carried out in a timely manner and was of the highest quality. I would not hesitate in recommending The Creative Collective to anyone considering their services.”
“The Creative Collective not only educated me, they were involved in revamping my blog/Facebook/twitter accounts giving my site a fresh new look. The whole team has an area of expertise they specialise in and they go to great lengths to keep up with what is happening out in the market place.”

“A jargon free, relevant and helpful introduction to social media”
John Vandeleur, Turner Freeman Lawyers
“TCC delivers what they say and are always very easy to interact with. We run a small consultancy and have a very subdued growth/social media strategy which TCC seem to have adapted to very easily.”
Steve Artis – Ultraspeed Australia
“What a crew, friendly and smart, just like my wife easy to get along with and get the job done so professionally. Thank you all.”
“If the concept wasn’t enough, the marketing has blown me away. I’ve received an enormous amount of positive feedback from all genders, young and old who all comment on the name/design The Creative Collective came up with for me. I love driving around in my Brew Captain branded vehicle and handing out the professionally designed marketing items. This is my first time in business for myself and everything from start to finish was very simple, and easy working with these guys. It was a real pleasure and we’ll continue to use them as the business grows from a one man show to hopefully a full franchise.”
