It doesn’t matter if you’re hosting an event, looking for a workout playlist, or creating a musical connection between your brand and customer – your music has to be perfect. Anybody can find thousands of playlists on dozens of music apps. And it’s just as easy to create and share a playlist with a few clicks. But are you choosing and creating the right ones? Creating the perfect playlist is about more than stringing together your favorite songs – what you choose can make or break the experience. You need a purpose and a plan. Don’t just hit shuffle. Our expert Playlisters have your back – and secrets and practices for creating the ultimate playlist. And they’re letting you in on them.
