Getting started with Ad Studio

Ad Studio is Spotify’s self-serve advertising platform. With Ad Studio you can:

  • Build an audio or video ad campaign in minutes
  • Launch a campaign with a minimum budget of 250.00 in your local currency
  • Create a new audio ad from scratch
  • Forecast impression estimates based on your target audience
  • Analyze performance using campaign reports

You’ll need a Spotify account to use Ad Studio. If you don’t have a Spotify account, click sign up to get started.

If you already have a personal Spotify account, you can use that to sign up for Spotify Ad Studio. If not, create a free Spotify account with a business email. You can also use a team business email or alias to make sure all of your stakeholders are looped in.

Click sign up and then choose log in with an existing account. Follow the steps using the email you used for your Spotify account.

If you are based in the UK, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, or Mexico, we will need to verify your VAT/local equivalent tax identification number upon sign up. We’ll email you once your tax identification number has been confirmed.

To help you effectively collaborate across multiple team members, you can add and remove users to an Ad Studio account with the different levels of permissioning below:

  • Admin: Account admins are able to create, view, edit, and export campaigns. Admins are also able to edit account settings and payment details. The admin role is automatically assigned to the account creator and is the only access level that is able to add or remove other users as contributors or viewers to an Ad Studio account. There can only be one admin for each account.

  • Contributor: Account contributors are able to create, view, edit, and export campaigns. Contributors are unable to edit account settings and payment details.

  • Viewer: Viewers have read-only privileges on accounts and campaigns. Viewers can view and export campaigns but cannot create or edit campaigns or account settings.

To do this, first create a Spotify account and a Spotify Ad Studio account. As the account admin, you can then add other users to the ad account as contributors or viewers by selecting manage ad accounts from the left-hand navigation bar.

To create an additional Ad Studio advertiser account, follow the same steps above by first creating a new Spotify account. This will require a new email. Once this new Spotify account is created you can then create a new Ad Studio advertiser account using any business email, including the same business email that was used for existing Ad Studio accounts.

You have the ability to access and switch between multiple ad accounts for which you are an admin, contributor, or viewer. To do this, select the ad account you would like to access from the left-hand navigation bar, which will allow you to view or manage multiple advertiser accounts without having to log in or out of each account.
