Smart Artists Do This – How To Grow A Fanbase

Now, who is TJ Chapman he’s Bo, be his manager truck pickles manager guy super experienced. You got ta, listen to this guy in his wisdom or in this article right here. It’s something that is really a lot deeper than a lot of artists realized, and I swear if you reprogram this about how you think about your marketing as an artist.

You will find far more success, because this one thing honestly has the power to in an artist career before they ever have a real shine, and it’s funny it’s funny to me how many artists feel like advertising is cheating. They want to be organic and advertising isn’t organic. What you crazy on man, you think Apple says there when they drop new, damn iPhone all every brand. You think you think of Atlantic says that with cardi B know they put millions of dollars into the marketing to make sure they put it in front of everybody yep.

You know, but you have to put in front of people, so they can see it in the first place to make that decision, whether or not they want to listen yep, and they it just trips me out how they they feel like is cheating or or it’s Not right and man that is business 101. At the end of the day, you have to figure out which of music, how you going first off, you got to find a place for it to live number two.

You got to figure out how you going to give it like, and I can’t tell you none of that for sure. I’m going to shoot at all these methods to try to find the right one and if all of them work or whatever that’s the more the merrier, but I’m not limiting my odds. You know in breaking this record, I’m going to try to expose it every way possible, I’m going to use all the methods that I told you to make sure I expose it to people till I find something to catch, and this record actually gets life.

It’s weird that in the marketplace today is there’s this big pushback or desire to be organic, as if it makes you look right and I don’t and organic and marketing don’t necessarily go in and it has to be artificial. I don’t care if you didn’t pay any money, but I axed you. The fact I asked you to listen to my song personally is me putting in some artificial effort to get you to listen, but you want to you want to start or spark some organic.

That’s what you want your artificial marketing to do, but you got ta, get like that ball rolling and, like you, have there’s so many people that are like I’ll do a article about an artist on blog, for example, and someone might be like, oh man, this is Fake or their industry plan, or they paid already had money, and it’s like you’re talking about them for the methods they use, but they’re hauling their where you want to get like so try to use those methods as opposed to understand, but they did killing themselves up For sure alright, so you might have heard the point you might get the point, but I have to expand on this conversation because, honestly, I don’t think artists understand the gravity of what this is rooted in.

First and foremost, you have to consider that it’s been marketed to artists for years. This whole idea of the starving artists that used to be a real thing that signify purity artists actually took pride in being a starving artist. But do you know why artists were starving because the record labels were taking their money? Somebody was making money off of the artist and then the other artist which is being sold the dream.

So you have to struggle and hustle to even get in a position to get your money taken. That’s been pushed and pushed on artists for a long time now, and there’s still some remnants of that stuff left over to the point where you have this weird classism and artistry, where artists tried to downgrade and discredit people who aren’t moving with a starving artist. Mentality of this just happens. For me it was super organic.

I didn’t use a is mine and infrastructure and way of going about things to boost my career. So, even though you might not have that in all aspects, there might be small subjects where you’re thinking about it. That way, because at the end of the day, when you’re complaining about these other people, it does nothing but make you sound like a loser. And why do I say it like that? Because I think that’s the only way to drive through the point that y’all are playing the same game so to speak, really you’re playing your own game, but everybody is playing this music game in the artist space right.

Well, if that’s true, just like any article game, there’s people who have strengths and weaknesses right, you might have a hundred on power but 50 on speed and something notes on the agility that you might have certain weapons. It’s the same thing. Everybody has different advantages. You might have more time to spend or waste there’s certain things that people have and some people is there certain things.

Other people don’t at the end of the day, there’s the things you have and the things that you don’t have. But when you work through those certain levels of the game, you’re, either losing or you’re winning and various parts of the game you get to the big boss and hey, they have all these different powers that you will have and you either beat them or you lose. You have to make the most out of what you have, because you wouldn’t be complaining if you had the money, if you had a Rich Dad or if you had a big investor, if you had some of these other situations, you’re not going to be saying: hey Yeah, I got a million dollars in the bank, but I’m not going to use it, so I can keep it real.

That’s stupid. First of all, like money does not guarantee success in the game. Connections, do not even guarantee success in the game, so you really playing yourself if you allow yourself to get continue having that narrative out there you’re just allowing that to exist because it makes you feel better. Since I don’t have that, then I can get this. That’s the only reason they have that, and I don’t but again the truth is that’s not the only differentiator it isn’t, because there’s so many rich parents, or so many successful artists that have kids that are nowhere near as big as some of these other artists right.

How many artists are as big as Chris Brown are as big as Drake or as big as chance to rapper are as big-ass Taylor Swift, Beyonce, not to say that these people didn’t have certain connections at certain points of their career, but for the most part, most Of these people started outside of the industry and worked their way up, but there’s so many people with kids that are legends in the game that are not doing it.

Big. No one wants to listen to their music, they have connections, but nobody cares about their money. They’re still not going to the shows, a girls are telling me the other day out. She just went to this show of a girl who has 1.2 million followers on Instagram and the person inside to a legend in the game, and I’m not even talking about old school old school legend. I’m talking about the legend still has high cultural impact today, but the girl didn’t have like 50 people at her show, stop looking at people and say: oh of course they made it because they got a lot of money.

The money does not guarantee the success which brings me back to the fact this whole organic thing as well. It’s something that you guys have to get your mind off of this whole idea. If you’re going to market, if you’re working on marketing right now, then it’s not organic. If you pay for one post to be posted by the influencer you’re already doing something, that’s not organic! By that type of definition, your whole marketing initiative is to do as many artificial things as possible that will bring attention to your product and hope that your product is quality enough, that it sparks and creates organic traffic.

Anybody else who just having to blow up and they didn’t know what was happening. Yeah those people are out there. They did just go viral, but that’s a look at a car. That’s to draw the cars it’s not because they were better than somebody else. That’s just good timing, there’s a lot of people who can sing well right. Well, all these things, but they didn’t post it on the platform and didn’t get seen by certain people, and it didn’t go viral and keep in mind whenever a new platform ages.

It will be harder and harder to be organic if you’re, five six seven years into Instagram and posting there’s not going to be that much organic growth and help because the platform’s build their technology against it they’re different now, and that goes for any other platform. If you get on there early, yes, you might find some good organic growth, but the chances of that go down and down and down every single month of platform ages.

That’s just how it goes, I’m not going to get into all the particular reasons. I just need. You guys to realize is: there is no dishonor in building an audience from paid traffic. If this is a fan base, you have fans, that’s all that matters. It’s not smart, just to be spending money and then people don’t come in to fans. That’s why we talk about strategy and how to do things right, but if you get the end result then great, because there’s a lot of people out there spending the money way more money than you can even imagine and still not getting the result.

Nipsey Hussle’s 12 Tips To Build An INDEPENDENT Music Empire

So if you don’t know who Mickey Hustle is he’s that guy, that might, you might have heard of when he sold that hundred dollar mixtape and jay-z bought like a thousand copies of mixtape, but he also sold other copies of it.

So that’s just a real short snippet and how can somebody that’s not really super known, sell, hundred-dollar, copies of your victims, we’ll get into it and how he does it. Here’s his tips. Like I talked about, I was in the streets. I had money. I had spots and I sold all my jewelry sold my course and bought studio equipment and devoted myself to it, and I made a lot of music majority of stuff that was on bullets thing.

I don’t know he’s wanted to. I made before my deal number one commit he got rid of all his chains and sold all his stuff like he said just because he knew he was going in a new direction. He didn’t want to be on the streets. No more he’s committed to this music number one commit number two collaborate, so Kendrick, yg Don Kennedy Nancy else themselves. Those guys all collaborated a lot in the beginning of the careers particular with each other, because they were in the same areas, and you could take advantage of this too, because it allows you to build a fanbase, especially if you’re in the city.

So you can get the most out of the area that you’re in I got a few mentor that has put me on books and literature and all that big blob. France is one of them and so on. You know he told me about this book called contagious, contagious, oh yeah, so I got to the second chapter that you were just talking. My heart is this: restaurant owner in Philly started selling Philly cheesesteak $ 400 at his restaurant, and it just was like it set off all type of conversation.

Ever I was talking about extent on type of influential people came to him and just want to check out why $ 100, like Oh Burke, ain’t going bought one David Letterman bought one, you got lost type of expulsion, publicity could be anything became like a staple and Everybody start coming through supporting behind all the cheesesteak, so I put the book down and I was like anybody got without nobody did that with music you.

So this is how you came up with this hundred-dollar mixtape/album idea. Studying he also mentioned having that mentor, I suggest everybody give mentors helpful in career building an empire whatever you want to do. But study study study he’s looking for other information, a lot of people in the hip-hop game. Don’t study, he’s reading books and he’s actually using the information yeah. Sometimes I won’t even go back and get it though.

If his Waggoner know you like, I know, listen to it, why pay for higher you? So I’m like you know, I just want to test out what get offering it free. We do experiment right once again, like I said. Not only is he studying, but he experimented and tested those ideas out right. He not cuz, I’m, not only did he have a hundred dollar copy that came with merchan a free concert pass and things like that, but he offered it 999 copy.

That was just a streaming copy and he also had a free copy. He said you want to see what it did and that he paid attention, which is also going right into this right here. When I came back from our own world on Team C, I was like you know. I know what I fuckin with I’m like. I know what it is. It took me. Five six make sense to really catch it without, like I’m, no well, I know I know what it is that connected to so crashing.

All is with me trying to just saturate the thing with a project with the ability type of wraps any type of movie that they’ve connected to before. I think so. This is that experimenting and paying attention. He has six mixtapes. Obviously, you experimenting your own music, but then he paid attention to say: okay throughout this entire process of all these mixtapes, I’m starting to realize exactly what they fuck.

What about me? Because once you do that, then you have all the power you pay attention to the people. Now you can give the people what they want. I think is your job to distinguish us. So Brandon is about your difference. You’re right about it’s so much of differences. It ain’t about you know, what’s the same, you know exactly right, just like that process, so once he paid attention saw what they connect with now.

He knows what his differences are. He knows what other people like about him and he can give them more of that. So then they can give themselves more of them, and now he has these. This fan base. That’s growing, that’s tip number five from nipsey, but everybody right for you. Yet I know my philosophy on my business model. I need to be involved as a partner. I need to be an owner, I heard, and I know that we ain’t going to have combos.

If you don’t start like that and then step number six, it gets real heavy OOP seven when it comes to that ownership. That’s give something I don’t know, but when it comes to nipsey, he’s super strong on the ownership and we’ll see a little bit more on this litt later. I see nothing right right, but I’m at the table at every dissociation, I’m in control of everything to do with my brand. To me: that’s the power, that’s where the you know the side conversations aren’t in the new opportunity right.

So not only this being an owner mean you own, something because there’s been this additional benefit when it comes to the power. That, therefore, is you so when you want to think about ownership, if you don’t own you’re, not you don’t have the power for decision-making, you don’t have the power for the decision-making you’re not going to be in decision-making meetings in those meetings. That’s on the bigwigs! That’s when the people who really make those moves are meeting right.

So if you can’t be in that meeting, you’re not going to build relationships for the people who really make stuff happen. Yes, nice to deal with some kind of distributor or just your manager or a in our. But if you can’t have that meeting with the guy who runs, let’s just say Disney or some kind of huge company that might even just want to license up all your stuff and give you all these additional opportunities, then you’re missing out on opportunities, which is what Most artists do I’m not trading ownership of the only asset I have, which is my intellectual property.

That’s his music, it’s pretty much true for every artist. All they got is their music, don’t give it up not go anywhere else. Why you feel like man, you know what I need to. I need to put my own compound. May I just believe ownership yeah. You know I mean I believe in you know: um, invest in yourself when you make money, you know you can easily go a lot of places, but I just feel like you know, your foundation should be strong.

He’s super consistent with this, so he made his own compound his own, a recording studio like for recording studios worth in one studios. I hear like four session rooms, but when you do something like this, you have to invest in yourself when you own, then you want to invest, then own, more, invest own, more continue this cycle and this how you slowly but surely build an empire, and next thing You know you buy out the building, you are helping and put other people on.

That would really really having an empire is like data, so I know he’s really super into daddy. He had one conversation when he was talking about him using Ryan Leslie super phone app right, and this really really treks fan data is one thing you need to really collect fan data generally speaking, but this goes to the extent of it. You come up to Nick C and say you’re his number one fan. He could look at his phone in about 10 seconds figure out exactly if you are his number one fan or not, he could just see his data and say hey well.

Actually such-and-such in Tokyo is my number one fan your number 76, because it’s basing on how much you support him. How many shows you going to how much how many album you bought, and he has all that data at the tip of his fingers. This kind of stuff is great because, let’s just say, you had a thousand fans, if you had a thousand fans like a thousand like super super fanatical fans that bought every single thing you put out, even if he has a hundred thousand people like a, but only A thousand people buy everything he knows if he puts out something for $ 120, at least those thousand people are going to buy it.

I’m going to make a hundred twenty thousand dollars off those people at the very least no beginning change like we in control to extent you know. Without the internet we got um a global village that we could deliver content to in our saying and it’s in his worldwide, you could told you to say: you’re marching. You could build businesses. So if you’re not stuck on, you know being a fine jumping and being some type of socialite, you could look at the guy for what it is, and you know saying – and you know build something.

I rock slowly tip number 10 – ignore the bullshit. A lot of artists do not do this they’re huge on the fame, junkie, socialite lifestyle, and what happens is I was going to happen to a lot of them? Is what happened to people past generations, where the oh geez had these great stories of what was and who he used to hang with, but they’re, not on top anymore they’re right there for you, because they didn’t keep making the moves and they didn’t make the right Moves which was focusing on the money in addition to the art, as opposed to just saying, hey, I want to be seen that’s what a lot of people do ignore that same stuff.

If you’re telling me that all y’all gauging it sound scanning billboard, we don’t need y’all y’all, getting an eviction notice. What did she say my this is hey. I don’t care if I’m in your main media outlets, I don’t care if I’m on your radio stations. None of this stuff, in which he’s on another net, he’s only had like one radio, I’m song for real for real, and he doesn’t need that because he can get to his fans, which means he can get to his money.

If he gets his money he can build and then create more music and then get back to his fans and get more money. If you got your fantasy got your money, you don’t need anybody else. All that other stuff is an illusion. I swear how much you get paid are the writers. I wrote that I paid him type of salary to my employees at my business that got felonies and I can’t get jobs, no disrespect so who’s. The underachiever I own, my company own the asset of this whole industry, which is yo-yo masters yo, your intellectual property.

You know, send your publishing, so you know you your metrics and what you gauge in as achievement is actually like a peon or underboss we’re looking at it, because you know like I’m not in it for the fame. Everybody want to be seen and held at the highest regard. Obviously, but you know you can’t cash that out and can take that to the bank, where you can in other ways, but you know, what’s the asset, what do the labels do it, for they do it for the ownership they do it for the for the catalogue For the mailbox money, and so you know, I think if you up one, what’s what’s going on you’ll you’ll respect that you wouldn’t say do underachieving for that yeah.

For you see, I play longer clips with nipsey’s in the other articles because stuff he said, is so real, don’t think like a peon. What he’s referring to is a complexion magazine writer, saying hey this guy’s underachieving? They lit radium one of their top ten underachieving rappers and he’s like no. You measuring people offer this little media buzz and this you know this little Fame over here, but nah man I I can.

I could pay you if I wanted to. I could hire ten of you if I wanted to, because I’m over here, winning with what matters tainted action to the mailbox money. What he was saying with that part is record labels. They finish the mailbox money, which is that money when I wake up is in a new check, is in my mailbox and that just keeps happening he is happening, but most artists. They don’t focus on that.

That’s why we have all these past stories of artists being ripped off he’s saying now. He has both of those things. He has the art and he has the money and he’s going to stay, focusing on that. He doesn’t need to get complex to give him. My a okay, you know it’s just like a metaphor for being a long horn. You don’t judge it by one leg of the race cause. If you judge me by my first leg, you’d have been like you know.

If the biggest dude on the web, then, if you’re, judging by the second leg, you might be like nip didn’t drop out, I’m a disappointment. But if you judge you bought a third leg, you won’t be like nipple, independent moment, yeah way back and look at it. As a marathon buddy dude came from, you know, single house, family, a gangbanging environment, you know, saying, didn’t graduate high school and been through the bullshit.

So what you say here is hey. This is everything if you put him in a nutshell: it’s a marathon. It’s a long game because building an empire is a long name: xjz, eggs, P, Diddy, P, Diddy literally start running marathons because he’s obsessed with the idea of a marathon because he knows he’s playing a long game right, it’s a marathon, so it doesn’t matter about the Ups and downs they they will affect you in the time being, but really, if you know, you’re playing a long game that helps you not get caught up in some of that BS when I said ignore to be this right, keep that in mind that’s number 12 And now we’re going to go out with a quote from Nick C on a mission, your worst enemy is idle time.

That just means hey, don’t waste. Your time on is BS point blank subscribe. If it was helpful, I want to go out with a quick article. I’m just of nimshi talkin about some other stuff because I still think it’s so dope is unhelpful.

How To Build A Fanbase In 3 Months! | $5 Music Marketing Strategy

It’s how a mere used a combination of cover, songs and original songs, a unique $ 5 a day. Facebook strategy and distro kid to build a fanbase of over 30,000 monthly listeners on Spotify is actually well above that I just can’t remember the number check this out so tell me more about because one of the things that baffled me, I wouldn’t say baffled, but what I loved because I didn’t hear other artists talk about doing something like this and once again just speaks to the assistants II was you’re a $ 5 a day, Facebook strategy.

I did that in the early days so like I, I think I when I when I when I spoke to a year ago. I think that’s what I was doing bad. So I did that for about three months yeah and I’m like you know what I’m just going to, let it run like people like the song, I’m just going to just let it run and see what happens and honestly, like I kind of forgot about it, and I just let it run in the background and then after three months like I did build up when I looked back, I’m like wow and actually built me up a little bit of an audience and a fanbase and people were checking as I was dropping those songs.

Every Monday, my streams on Spotify were starting to slowly creep up and then I dropped a cover. A sorry, a mash-up I did of to me a song into you, ya know, and I mashed it with russa song, wife, you loved, like really exploded. You know so like people like that one just hit all the algorithms. It went crazy and I think it’s almost at half a million streams now on Spotify. Oh that brings a question to my head.

So that’s essentially a remix cover I’ve been axed before, and this isn’t really something I get into as far as some of the legality type things, but I’ve been eggs when you put a cover on a platform like Spotify, what does that do for you? Like? Can you do that? Have you gotten any kind of strikes or anything like that? No, I haven’t because well with district kid, the good thing is, and I would use just her kid for any artists reading they acquire the cover license for you, so you’re covered and keep in mind like there’s two licenses right, you have master recording and you have Song and you have the copyright, which is the the writing of the song.

So I don’t own the writing of the song, but I own my master, which is the version of the song that I created. So I’m allowed to use that and put it like. I’m only getting master revenue, so Spotify also pays publishing royalties to the to the songwriters that wrote the song right, so they would be getting the backend royalties that way which don’t come to me because it’s a cover. I didn’t write the song, but I created that arrangement of it and I created that recording.

So both sides, like just a songwriter and everybody who’s covering my song, is yeah. Oh there’s tons of covers on Spotify like yeah, like there’s artists, who only have covers on Spotify. It’s just you just have to buy the license right. You can do it through district head and there’s a company called louder. You can do it through them. Boom cool has their service too, or you can use it. I don’t use to incur.

The reason for me is not because they’re not a good company, but because I release so much music that it was cost prohibitive. Like I like, I would have been paying what five thousand dollars a year just a tune core and it just didn’t make any sense, gachi so um, just to hone in on my process a little bit when it comes to district kid and how they kind of Obtained the rights for you so you’re saying once you submit a song, their algorithms, pretty much picks up on the fact that it’s a cover and they obtain it or do you submit and let them know that it’s a cover.

So when you, when you choose the option, they ask you district ritas is a cover and then you click. Yes, it’s a cover and then they ask you who the original songwriter is then sorry who the original artist is and then they go and obtain the license for you. So I like that better because it’s less work for me now I don’t have to use a third party to go, get a license. You can buy a license yourself.

You can just go to louder, comm and buy one but hey anything extra. They just handle the money. No, you do have to pay, so you have to pay. I think it’s a dollar a month to have the cover license, so it can’t add up if you’re going to keep it up there. It’s not bad. It’s twelve bucks a year. You know so well, then, for the service they’re providing like now, you have peace of mind right. You don’t have to worry about getting a license and worrying about all that.

I’d rather just pay the twelve bucks and not worry you’re sure, especially as an artist I mean primarily I’m already doing too much work. Um and that’s like one less thing for me to do. You know yeah all right, as you guys can see that consistency. First of all and foremost, is what I want you guys to focus on when it comes to his $ 5, a day, Facebook strategy. That’s so much better than just doing one week right and just going really hard on some Facebook Ads.

He did $ 5 a day that allows him to stay consistent and you have to do one dollar a day. It’s something just worth trying out over time and you have to do one dollar a day over 60 days or 90 days. Do whatever you can. So you can only collect the data over time within your budget, so you can get that information and learn how to make even more specific ads for yourself to utilize. But then, of course, a big part of his strategy, which is huge when it comes to the peace of mind that district 8 offered by making it so easy for him to leverage covers, because we all know how to do YouTube covers right.

A lot of people can make that happen quickly, but when it comes to covers on Spotify, I always got a lot of questions about it. Not it necessarily know how to answer that question, and I didn’t necessarily have time to figure it out or ask somebody. So not only is it dope, they they make it super easy, because a lot of artists need peace of mind. They don’t want to town a bit like focus on all this stuff when you’re, just trying to you know being Indian grind your way up into a better situation, but it’s also relatively inexpensive.

But Mary you’re going to mention that in his interview saying you know if he was using chunk or it would have been cost prohibitive for his particular strategy and with all that being said, a lot of people have been telling me for a minute. Your brain way. You should do a podcast, you should do a podcast and I’m strongly considering it in some form of fashion, and I decided that if it happens, it will definitely happen on distro kid.

I actually already have an account, and I’m filling my way through the system and with all of the good things I’ve heard about it when knowing so many people who are using it, I felt comfortable go ahead and get a discount code for you guys and offer It up to you at all for 7 % off your first year of membership with district kid. Now, if you already have district kid great on well and fine, I will actually love if you provide your commentary and experience with it in the description below.

But if you’re something you want to check out, then you can check it through the link in the description below to get that seven percent off district kid calm, /bi, p, / brand man, but other than that. As always, if you like, this article go hit the like button and you like, you, might as well share it and if you’re not subscribed, you know what to do. He dare subscribe. You

SoundCloud Makes a Power Move: Monetize Your Music!

Now, those of you who don’t know who I am digital marketing myself specialize in helping artists, like you, guys get their songs hired through platforms like Spotify, Instagram, YouTube and bunch of others. Now what I want to talk to you guys about today is a recent Power Move that the streaming platform SoundCloud has made.

I want to get into how you guys can start to take advantage of this power move, what exactly it is and how I think it will affect you guys as artists in the near future. So with that being said, let’s get right into it. So what exactly is this power move that SoundCloud has made? If you keep up with SoundCloud in any way, shape or form, then you’ve probably heard that they now allowed monetization of the music on their platforms, meaning that you can now make some money because of SoundCloud before the only way to just stuff will get monetize from Them was if you were invited to their SoundCloud premier program or if you knew someone like your distributor, who can help you get your stuff monetize through whatever other means that they may have so like.

I was saying before SoundCloud premier program used to be invite-only, meaning that some flower pretty much had to ask you to come, try it out. That was the only way that you can make money through SoundCloud through them. But now the SoundCloud premier program is open to all creators who use the platform as long as you meet their basic bare minimum requirements. So what exactly does this mean for you guys? It pretty much means that now you have another way to put some money back into your pockets now before.

One of the main arguments that I used to hear against SoundCloud is that you were literally giving your music away for free, and why would you do that? Now I know technically on platforms like Spotify and like title you’re, not charging your fans for your music, but at least those platforms were attempting to pay you guys for your streams. I always thought it was kind of weird that, with SoundCloud the main source of traffic, which is you guys, was not being compensated for the amount of work that they put in unless SoundCloud deemed you worthy to be so.

To be honest with you guys, I think the SoundCloud opening up its premiere program is an attempt for them to keep their core consumer base happy, which is music artists. You guys, I think that SoundCloud has finally realized that they have been driving you all the way to their competitors, to Spotify, to Apple music, to title to Pandora, all of their competing services, and they aren’t you guys back.

I think they want you all to at least seriously consider SoundCloud as a platform that you need to really work and drive traffic to, and they knew that. The best way to do so was to finally start paying you guys for the work that you’ve been putting in and finally the part of the article that I’m sure you guys have been waiting for. How can you join SoundCloud premiere program so that you can start to monetize your music and make some money well, like I was saying earlier in the article, you must first meet their basic criteria, which are pretty much as follows.

First, you have to have at least a SoundCloud Pro or SoundCloud Pro and limited account, meaning that you can’t monetize your music. If you only use their free account, you also can only monetize original music, meaning no remixes, no cover songs. None of that guys. You also can’t have any copyright claims against your account. So if you ever uploaded something that didn’t belong to you and you got a claim against it, this may be something that causes you a little trouble.

I would definitely look more deeply into it if this applies to you and lastly, you must have at least 5,000 strings within the last month from countries that SoundCloud Dean’s eligible I’ll make sure to leave the article about that in the description below, so that you can Dig a little bit more deeply into it. There’S always guys if you feel, like you learned anything today, please like and share this article hit those post notifications as well as I wouldn’t want you guys to miss anything once again.

My name is Corey and I’ll see. Y’All next time,

How to Grow On Soundcloud [Digital Dash w/ Kohrey]

Now, for those of you who don’t know who I am digital marketing myself, I specialize in helping artists, like you, guys, get their songs heard through platforms like Spotify, Instagram, YouTube and a bunch of others. What I want to talk to you guys about today is how to run up your place on soundcloud, and this isn’t a platform that I necessarily will recommend you guys to work.

I do personally have my own beliefs about SoundCloud and trust me I’ll be doing a article on that in the future. But I haven’t gotten a lot of questions from you, guys asking me how you can start to build your place up on soundcloud how you can start to get your songs out there so on and so forth. So I want to give you guys a couple of tips, some that I’ve noticed and kind of seen in my recent past working with SoundCloud and some they have come directly from SoundCloud themselves.

They recently put out a blog article talking about ways that you can optimize your soundcloud page, so that your songs are spread a lot more, so I’ll be digging into that as well. So with that being said, let’s get right into it all right now. The first tip comes directly from SoundCloud itself and it’s make sure that you’re as discoverable as possible, meaning that you want to have your titles and your descriptions in order.

Don’T have anything like track number one. The track number two and don’t add any unnecessary and extra characters or symbols that will make it hard for people to find you. So whatever your name is on Instagram or Twitter or whatever other profiles, you use make sure that it’s as close to it as possible within the track description and the track title for your song, so that people can easily lift you up and find you.

You also want to make sure that your album art is the highest quality and resolution, as you can possibly get. Soundcloud doesn’t really like to work with low res photos and I’ll make it a little harder for you to be discovered and for people to want to actually come and check you out when they do stumble upon your profile. The main thing here, guys is consistency. Consistency across your track descriptions, consistency across your titles and consistency across your album art will make you very discoverable on soundcloud, giving you a better chance of being picked up by the platform’s algorithm and having your songs actually spread out within the platform, and the second thing That you guys want to make sure that you’re doing is taking the advantage of sound clouds genre and mood now, just like all the other streaming platforms.

Soundcloud does in fact have its own algorithm that they used to determine how other people are hearing songs and what songs come up next after this song and so forth and so forth. So SoundCloud uses their algorithm based on the tax and the genres that you guys are using. So you want to use as many as you possibly can. That relates to your song and relate to your audience. So if you’re a rapper, your manager, I’m attack may be hip hop.

You may have a chilled mood or a sleepy mood, or something like that tagging it with as many relevant tags as possible, increases your chance of being picked up by the algorithm being spread to these people, who are looking for songs based on these types of tags. In these types of genres and increasing your chance that you actually hit the audience that you want to hit and that’s the best way to make sure that your music spreads on soundcloud, honestly so before each song release make sure that you have a list of tags.

And subgenres listed out that you can use with each song time and time again. This way, you’ll make sure to hit the same niche over and over spreading your music out amongst the people, who really care about the types of songs that you’re making and putting you in front of a relevant audience anyway. Now the next thing that you’ll want to make sure that you’re doing is taking advantage of repost networks and the repost function on soundcloud in general.

Now, in my opinion, they don’t work as well as they did. I would say two or three years ago, but they’re still the most effective way for you to grow your song on SoundCloud itself. You can either reach out to people who are bigger than you and see how much they’re charging for repost I’ve seen a couple of popular DJs and even like smaller lesser-known artists, who still have large fan bases who offer repost as well or you can take advantage Of repost network, which is a website that actually sales repost from different large SoundCloud accounts, just go in there and make a profile dig through the ones that make the most sense.

For you see how much they cost and get those guys to repost as long as well or if you guys, are trying to stay more inside of your budget or if you don’t really want to spend money on repost at all. What you can do is start the build your own repost network, using friends, artists, DJs and producers, who are all in similar size and demographic as you as well. This would make it easier because your starter kind of associate brands with people who are also trying to build themselves up and pretty much be sharing fan bases with other people who can pretty much pitch it into yours and you’ll be helping a lot.

By doing the same now on SoundCloud, your repost network is like gold, so they’re stronger, vennett way that you build the better chances that you have of spreading your song out outside of your own network, increasing its views, increasing its reach and increasing your chance of picking Up new fans, so just to give you guys a little recap. The first thing that you want to do is make sure that you’re as discoverable within the platform itself, meaning that you want to make sure that your titles are order, that your descriptions are in order and that you’re using the same name on soundcloud as the one That you’re, using on all your other social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter or whatever it is that you guys are using the second thing that you’ll want to do is make sure that you’re using SoundCloud genre and mood tags, like I said, SoundCloud has its own Algorithm that it uses to determine songs that played next with in other people’s on Play, listing and their track efforts, and things like that.

So, the more that you tag your songs or there’s many relevant tags as possible, the better chance that you have of SoundCloud algorithm, picking you up and spreading your songs in the platform without you even having to do much work. And the third thing that you guys want to do is make sure that you build a strong repost network. You can do this by hitting up DJ’s or rappers or other artists who are offering repost for whatever price.

It is that they offer make sure that you’re getting the best bang for your buck and it actually helps to spread your song or you can always tap into artists who have a similar genre and niche and same size following as you two start, the build you Guys it’s on repost network of similar style artists, or you can always use a website like repost Network, just go in make an account find pages that are actually offering repost and figure out, which ones make the most sense for you, your style of music and your Budget now make sure to leave their link to the original SoundCloud blog post in the description below, so that you guys can check out some of the other tips that they had.

I didn’t feel like really needed that much of a real description, but you can always go through it, read through it yourself and get from it. What you need now, as always guys if you feel like you, learned me pain today, please make sure you like to share this article, hit those post notifications so that you guys don’t miss anything. I want you guys to learn everything and anything that you possibly can with.
