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.

You can collaborate with multiple team members in Ad Studio by adding or removing existing users to an Ad Studio account. Set different levels of user permissions for the account based on the roles below:

  • Admin: Account admins can 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 can 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 can create, view, edit, and export campaigns. Contributors can’t edit account settings and payment details.
  • Viewer: Viewers have read-only privileges on accounts and campaigns. Viewers can view and export campaigns but can’t 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 Ad Studio account holders as contributors or viewers by selecting manage ad accounts from the left-hand navigation bar. From there, you can search for the users you’d like to add using their Spotify username. This can be found in User settings in the top right-hand corner.

Please note: A user must first create their own Spotify Ad Studio account before they can be added as a contributor or viewer.

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.
