5 Tips to have a Professional Soundcloud
Soundcloud has become almost a mandatory reference when we want to share and at the same time promote our music on the net.
This well-known portal was founded in Stockholm (Sweden) in 2007 and since then it has only grown in popularity, especially among the ECES of electronic music.
However, despite the elapsed time, for many users (new or not), Soundcloud remains a true unknown. That is why in this post we will offer you 5 simple tips to make your SoundCloud account look like a real professional and to get Soundcloud followers.
1. Have a Soundcloud Pro Account:
Yes, we know, not everyone can afford to pay the 30 euros (Soundcloud Pro) or the 99 euros (Soundcloud Pro Unlimited) that cost the payment accounts per year. But if you want to look like a professional you must act as such, know the detailed statistics of all your sessions or productions, upload up to 6 hours of music (Soundcloud Pro) or unlimited in the case of the Pro Unlimited account or not be limited to the 100 downloads per file with which the free accounts operate are more than enough reasons to think of such an investment. Alternatively you can purchase SoundCloud plays.
2. Manage your Tags Correctly:
Soundcloud to classify your music use the first tag you write just below the name of the session or production you want to upload. If for example you use the electronic tag, Soundcloud will automatically classify it as electronic music and it will be easier for your music to be found by lovers of this genre.
The best thing in these cases is to put the tag according to the genre that encompasses your music, you can always use more tags, but the first is the one that will define where Soundcloud will place your production or session. So, make no mistake and classify your music yourself for others to discover and the reproductions and followers increase considerably.
3. Always fill in the Biography Section and your Links in social Networks:
It is recommended that the biography is not very long, nobody wants to read a will, it is about defining in a few lines who you are and what you do. If you have the biography in Spanish and English much better, considering that the language of Shakespeare is the most used in the music industry and in the business world in general, the logical thing is to make things easy for our future followers.
As for social networks, focus on the most popular and opt for quality rather than quantity. If for example you have an Instagram account and you have only uploaded two photos in two years, it is best that you observe your presence in that social network and concentrate on those where you are most active.
4. The name of the URL is Fundamental:
It is important to clarify that if you own a Soundcloud Pro account, the platform allows you to change the name of your URL. Therefore, it is advisable to check from time to time that the name you want to choose is no longer busy and proceed to change quickly.
Another aspect that you should keep in mind is that all your social media profiles use the same name, if you always use DJ Paco, it doesn't make much sense that in Soundcloud you only use Paco. Do respect of your brand forever because brand is that name from which they are known professionally.
5. Proof of Content Publication:
There are no point distributing 3 sessions in a month and after that going through a half year without distributing anything, the Soundcloud calculation is intended to advance the most dynamic clients.
The normal thing is to design a media plan, that is, from time to time to publish new content. The most common is to upload at least once a month, you can space your posts with that time interval. It is better to upload a production per month, before 3 remixes in a week and then the next week or month absolutely nothing.
