Soundtracking Success: How to Create a Spotify Playlist for Your Speaking Engagements

Who doesn’t love a good playlist? While we all used to spend hours (or more) creating our favorite mixtapes, now we’re far more likely to jump on an app like Spotify. From there, it’s easy to create dozens of playlists for every mood and moment, and follow playlists created by others that speak to your interests.

Like us, The Mather Group, LLC.

We created a playlist for all of our CEO Josh Greene’s speaking engagements. Why? It was fun, it looks pretty darn good, and it makes it easy for anyone to find and binge all things TMG.

And here’s how it looks on Spotify:

How to Make Your Own Spotify Playlist

Feeling inspired? Follow these steps and you’ll have your own playlist in no time.

1. Create a Spotify account

2. Go to Search and search for the podcast or show for the first speaking engagement you wish to add

3. Select the podcast or show

4. Find your episode

5. Click on the three horizontal dots (fun fact, this is officially called a “meatball menu”)

6. Select Add to playlist

7. Select Create playlist

8. Name your playlist something obvious and easy for others to find and recognize – aka Your Name Podcast Episodes

9. Repeat steps 2 through 6 for all speaking appearances, only now select the name of your playlist in the dropdown menu that appears

Pro Tips for Your Spotify Playlist

To make the most of your new, snazzy playlist, we recommend:

  1. Share it! Put it on your website, in your newsletters, and on social media.
  2. Keep it up to date.
  3. Occasionally use the account yourself to listen to other podcasts or music. We didn’t do this at first and received an email from Spotify: We noticed your account has been temporarily disabled after our security department noticed some suspicious activities on it. Not sure why creating a playlist classified as suspicious, but since we’ve been using the account, we’ve had no problems.

Have fun!
