How to Promote Music with SoundCloud

There are websites that allows you to make the music and distribute on SoundCloud with a push off on button, I thought it would be one great idea to list a few ways for your SoundCloud promotion and share the music all over the web.

Ways to promote music with SoundCloud

Time to Share it publicly

SoundCloud was made to be one of the easiest way of storing your tracks at one place & “push it out” to the social networks, blogs, and more. You may easily share the single tracks and “sets” (playlist of songs, which appear in a waveform player) to Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and many more–and embed SoundCloud player manually! Click on the “share” button to start sharing the music with the whole world.

While it comes about fan engagement, there’re many possibilities for sharing the tracks & sets on the SoundCloud: you can ask for the feedback on the alternate mixes, motivate your fans to make their own “setlists,” post the untitled track & ask for the fans to comment over with the suggestions for a song name, and more.

Make it simple for the bloggers to access the tunes-

The best part about SoundCloud is that it makes it simple to do your digital PR. You can send the tracks to the bloggers & journalists; control if they will download your tracks or just stream them.

Share works privately-

Got material that you want to share with only selected fans? Do you want to collaborate with the artist all over the country? Same private sharing function that helps you to manage the digital PR allows you to provide the exclusive content & to solicit any feedback from the producer, friends, label, and bandmates without “releasing” the tune.

Give away the free tracks

SoundCloud allows you to offer tracks as the free downloads. You can select some of the best tunes & allow your fans to download it for free. It can help the music to go viral.

Get engaged: check comments and more

One of the coolest features of SoundCloud is that it allows the listeners to leave their comments at the specific points in a waveform. Make sure you check the comments, reply over to the listeners, and leave out any comments on bands’ songs too!

Join the “Groups”

You will find all types of location and genre based “groups” on the SoundCloud. You can pick out some that you think the music will be right for, and join ’em, & submit the tracks. It is the good way to build online community that can lead to the sales & gigs down a line.
