With now 175 million active listeners and a valuation of over $1 Billion, It’s clearly apparent that Soundcloud is the go to platform for independent musicians. It’s now 2015 and Soundcloud will turn 8 this summer, we thought it fitting to put together our list of ten methods that in no way make a huge impact over night, but if persistently carried out together could have you finishing the year with a much larger followers count than you set out with.
01. Secure a relevant profile URL.
It’s important to secure a strong and relevant profile URL as it helps your page look clean and professional, and also looks better when linking from an external source. If your artist or brand name is also a commonly used term, it can help in letting the visitor know that your account is the official page for your brand. For example, soundcloud.com/soundspace was already taken when we made our account, so we opt-ed for soundcloud.com/wearesoundspace. We also could have chosen anything similar to /soundspacemusic, /soundspaceofficial or /soundspacebelfast.
