How To Get More Likes,Followers On SoundCloud | SMMSUMO

1. Make EPIC music regularly

If you never finish any of your loops and WiPs, or if you’re too scared of criticism, then you’re not going to get far.

You have to force yourself to COMPLETE your tracks, and spend time to make them sound awesome – they should not be too repetitive, they should not be overly complicated and difficult to listen to, they should make people feel something, whether it’s excitement or despair – whatever your intention is with the track.

A lot of you might say that you don’t have the time, but it’s all about your priorities. Did you need to go out and sink 8 pints of beer last night, and be hungover all day today? Probably not. Could you have used that time and all of today to make some epic music instead?

2. Build your network of friends & connections

How will this help you? Once you have real friends with other SoundCloud users, they’ll help you promote your music in lots of different ways (that I’ll get into in a minute).

The key to developing real relationships is to show genuine interest and offer real value to others, instead of always thinking about what’s in it for you.

We’ve all seen those people who follow 2000 people (the maximum allowed number) and like everything in their dashboard, without properly engaging with you.

DON’T be another one of those guys – it’s obvious that you’re spam-liking and spam-following and that’s not a good look for you and your brand…

Here’s how to do it:

1. Find people whose music you like.

2. Like, repost, comment on their songs.

3. Find them on Facebook and like their Facebook page, then comment on their Facebook page

4. After a couple of weeks of steps 1, 2 and 3, send them a message on SoundCloud – ask them how they made this sound or that snare, and let them know that you’ve shared their music with your followers on SoundCloud, Facebook etc. Basically, get a conversation going and show them that you’re willing to help them out.

If you do this with 10 people, you’ll be able to reap a lot of benefits including growing your audience.

3. Google Plus Communities

Now when it comes to other social media sites, there are two that I highly recommend:

Yes, it’s true. Google Plus is here to stay, and it’s a great told for getting hundreds of people to hear your new musical creation, regardless of how many followers you have.

First, you’ll need to set up a decent Google Plus profile, and then the real fun starts: Google Plus Communities.

These are the secret weapon inside G+. They are basically large groups of people based around common interests.

There are communities for almost every genre of music imaginable – house, dubstep, drum and bass – you name it!

Once you join some groups, you’ll see that there are a TON of interesting discussions and debates going on in G+.

Here’s what to do:

A. Start engaging with between 5 and 10 related communities.

What does this mean? – voting up other people’s posts – responding to other people’s posts – adding VALUE to the conversation

B. AFTER you’ve engaged with people, whenever you have a great new piece of music to share, just post a link to your sound cloud in your top 5 – 10 communities and ask people to share it and follow you on SoundCloud.

4. Facebook Groups

If you’re already an avid Facebook fan, you’re probably already a member of some of the groups on there.

And there are many more on Facebook than there are on G+ (I still prefer G+ because it’s less crowded and there seem to be less brain-dead people on there compared with Facebook).

Here’s what you’ll do:

A. Search for your genre(s) of music and narrow your search to groups

B. Join 10 to 20 Facebook groups related to your kind of music

C. Search for groups related to equipment like Ableton, Logic Pro, Native Instruments and join some of those groups too

D. Engage in the conversation (just like I told you to do with G+ E. Once you have a musical masterpiece you want to share, drop a link in each of these groups.

Once you start making use of Facebook groups and Google Plus communities, you’ll see a real surge in the number of people listening to your music. As an example, I recently released a new drum and bass track on SoundCloud.

I usually get around 50 listens to my music each day, but by promoting my song on other social media platforms, I got close to 400 listens in one day:

Four more useful Facebook tips:

A. Ask your music producing friends to share your link to their followers on Facebook and G+ B.

Check your Facebook Analytics to see when the peak time is that most people are online, then schedule your status update to go out on that date C.

On your Facebook fan page, post the link several times during the first week that you publish your new song D.

Share your fan page’s status update on your own timeline Make sure you’re engaging and contributing to the conversation before you just drop a link to your own song like a douche.

5. Tagging

Make your music is searchable and easily findable for people searching for music in SoundCloud.

The more tags, the easier to find and the more plays you will get.

Here are some ideas for tags to give your new track: – genre tags (and related genres) – similar style record label names – similar artist names – adjectives that describe the mood of your song – other similar songs by other well known artists

6. Leave comments, and respond to comments people leave on your music.

And make sure that the comments you leave are useful, meaningful, and not just ‘rad’ or ‘sick’…

When you show that you’ve put some thought into your comment, it gets noticed, not just by the person whose song you are making a comment on, but by other people who listen to his or her song.

If people notice a pattern of you writing great comments, some of them will come and check your music out.

Also, the people who get your useful comments will appreciate it and will be more likely to check your profile out and follow you.

7. Collaborate with your new connections

Here’s the beauty of doing a collaboration: You do half the work and get extra exposure to all of their fan base as well as your own.

You also help your friend by letting him or her get exposure to all of your fan base! Collabing also helps you to discover new techniques and approaches to making music by seeing in depth how another person does it. This will help you grow your skills.
