6 Ways to Grow Your SoundCloud Followers | SMMSUMO

Best day/time of the week to release songs.


Sundays 5PM GMT. Why? most SC users have daily jobs during the week, so many of them find time to work on their music on the weekends. They might start something on saturday and have something to show by Sunday. As soon as the release while they wait for feedback they go through the timeline listening to others users music during the next days. I have to say that this is just an hypothesis, is just an explanation for a behaviour I was able to observe from my numbers.

Subscribe to 75 related-to-your-new-release groups and share.

Before releasing new material, ask yourself what are the concepts or tags surrounding my sounds. For instance, if we were releasing “Tonight” (one of our songs), the tags could be this list: disco, dance, rock, guitar, melodic, alternative, indie, bass, electric, logic, producer, happy, chill, sexy, on-man-band, pop, 80s, georgemichael, sade, red hot chilli peppers,…and so on. You can add all the tools and plugins, pedal fxs etc you used as well. And then you start searching for groups in SC related to each one of the tags in your list. Once you have subscribed to at least 75 groups and your material is live, you hit the share on group and start sharing it. It will tell you that you have to stop once you reach 75 groups, the maximum. Save this list of tags and select the most relevant ones for your song to use them to tag your song itself as well.

Listen each others music, put attention and give honest real feedback as often as possible.

SC is about sharing passion for sound and music. If you want to be heard and considered, you must spend a lot of time listening other people stuff. You have to check hopefully in a daily basis the incoming tracks section of the SC dashboard. Listen to all new tracks, focus on details, emotions and the technical side, try to enjoy and be open minded. Consider everything a draft and if something is really great let yourself feel inspired. All the honest and real things that came to your heart and mind are of huge value for those producers. Share it by drooping intelligent comments. You can do different kind of comments: helpful, constructive, critics, suggestions, like, “don’t like this part but I still think is great because”, emotions, things that happened to you with the song, reminds me of, evolution of the artist, etc. Be friendly. You shouldn’t ever repeat comments, that will easily turn AGAINST you. Why? because SC is a very transparent social network, you can almost check everything in a users profile. People will tell that you are spamming by checking your latest comments, and number of likes during the last hours. Also SC is applying strong rules against that so focus yourself on these tips instead and you’ll see how things go better for your stuff.

Facebook groups.

I guess I don’t need to convince you about the relevance and impact of Facebook as a social network. Even though the high number of bots and duplicated accounts, it’s still a great place to promote your new tracks. Use all the tags you created on TIP2 and search for groups related, subscribe them all and post your track. In this case avoid the paste and forget, don’t do that. That will make your track getting ignored and even deleted. Before using a new group on Facebook people should get to know you so after subscribing spend some days giving feedback to other people, participate on conversation, contribute with ideas, etc. This will multiply the response by 10 when you submit something new. When it comes the time to paste the SC link, add a note to it. Two or three lines maximum, say something that contains the more relevant tags from TIP2 + something related to the group you are about to submit. This last thing is very important to avoid to be seen as a spammer (and to be a spammer). The more lazy you are in this sense, the less response you’ll get.

Repost your track daily the first 3 days.

If you go to the track settings after one day this is live when you set your track to private and back to public again (waiting 2 minutes in between) you make your track appear as a new track on other people incoming tracks section. Pushing your track to the top of the list gives it again chances to get heard. Don’t overuse this trick unless you want your followers to unfollow you. Don’t be exaggerated.

Give Your Post a Paid Boost.

Although getting your post featured on a Channel is awesome, it isn’t enough. You need to help your post go red hot. After your content gets attached to the channel, you need to quickly drive lots of traffic to it. This will help push your post to the top of the channel, as opposed to being just listed on the channel in fifth position (or wherever it ends up being shown). You have to get to the top spot. How? Spend a few bucks (no more than $50) on Facebook and Twitter promoted posts. This will help quickly drive lots of traffic to your Soundcloud post.
