So, the spotlight is the only light source? This is rare to only have one light source - usually one would have several such as a key light, rim light, etc...

An old trick is to clone the spotlight, so you'll have two spotlights orientated similarly. Have each at 50 percent or 60/40 or 75/25 intensity. Have one spotlight not affect the main object - the rays will go through this object and hit the floor to lighten it up.
