As a music lover I always wondered how do people get more soundcloud followers. after all it’s always nicer to release a track and to see all the people commenting on your stream.
This is usually and partly related to how good is your music but not only. it’s also connected with the way you manage your social media accounts outside of soundcloud.
For example a good facebook page will need to act according to certain codes and routines in order to become successful and not tiring. same goes for your soundcloud channel. first thing you can do about the external work is to read some manuals. Here is one about social media in general or one about youtube marketing in case you use youtube as well.
The activity inside soundcloud
You must know your way around the platform. basically they encourage you to perform likes of tracks you enjoyed and also to engage more with your audience. saying things like “nice” is not enough.
Many authors will delete the comments since they will regard them as spam or useless feedback. you can try to be more creative and this way get more attention.
Similar to blogging if you really engage with other bloggers in a good way they will take you seriously. I had a friend who wrote a whole post about the analysis of another blogger post.
This made quite a ripple effect since the other blogger wrote about being mentioned on my blog and this is how things rolled out for the best.
This is the same with soundcloud. if you engage inteliggently and add some deeper insights you can get more followers and interactions with other authors.
They wrote a nice guide about it that you can read.
Or watch this great video guide if you are more the visual type :
In the end of the day if you like your music and you make good music you will not necessarily get the followers without putting any efforts. did you know that the beatles paid groups of girls to faint during their first gig’s? that was fake but later became real 🙂
So don’t fear that you are losing your artistic side. Your music will remain pure and it’s completely ok to decide on letting more people know that it’s out there.
