How to Enjoy More SoundCloud Plays


When you hear elderly folk say stuff like “how times have changed” we may not really understand where they are coming from. Times have really changed and you better believe it.

Who would have thought that a time will come when a person will become a worldwide star from the comfort of his/her living room? No hectic tours, massive media campaigns and other PR stunts meant to constantly put the person in the faces of the people.
This has however happened a number of times and we have these now-stars in our midst to confirm it. Examples include Justin Bieber, Tori Kelly, Shawn Mendes, Alessia Cara, James Bay, Austin Mahone and many others some of whom you can read about here. With these shining examples, more independent artists are now hoping to achieve this same kind of rise to stardom.
With a lot of people now trying this route to fame, competition has increased, meaning that you now must make special effort to ensure you stand out. There are a number of platforms on which musicians share their work in a bid to gain recognition. The one we will be focusing on today is SoundCloud.

What Does SoundCloud Have to Offer?

SoundCloud is an audio streaming site where music and podcasts can be listened to for free. It was founded in 2007 and now has more than 270 million users out of which about 76 million are regular monthly users. Its services reach more than 320 million listeners globally every month as they listen to the over 170 million audio uploads that the site hosts.
From the above, you can see that there is a huge opportunity here for musicians. There is a ready audience to which you can sell your skills. Add to this the recent announcement of a licensing deal reached with both Warner Brothers and Universal Music and the platform becomes even more attractive as its listener base is now sure to tremendously increase.
There’s however something you need to consider. On a platform like this, you need to have loads of followers and get a large number of plays to ensure you stand out. With over 170 million different songs and podcasts available for listening and some for downloading, how can a newbie get song plays?
This is exactly what we will be examining in this next section.

How to Get More Plays


We already stated above that you need to have a high number of plays and followers to be able to stand out from the crowd on this platform. With the increase in the competition for the attention of the various users, you must be smart and strategic in the way you go about growing your plays.
Here are a few ways to go about it.

Make Sure Your Profile is Top Notch

Your profile is what will either attract people to your page or repel them. You need a description and profile image that will be sure to attract people to come see what you have on offer.

The Quality of Your Song

There’s no point making any effort at all if what you are offering is sub-standard. Your song must be such that people will love to listen to. When you eventually get them to listen to it, you want them to be blown away and be excited enough to share it with very positive comments.

Your Song Description and Art Design

This is part of what we were referring to above when we said “when you eventually get them to listen to it.” Getting visitors to listen to your song is critical. No matter how great the song is, if no one has listened to it, everything it has to offer will be hidden.
Get a magnetic description as well as an art work that practically draws people in to come listen to your work.

Song Tags

Tag your songs properly to ensure that your song is seen by your crowd. Tags simply help bring songs to their exact crowd. For example, if you are a jazz musician, your song should have tags that include jazz so it can be recommended to jazz lovers.

Increase Interactive Activities on the Platform

After uploading your song on the platform, take some time to search for songs in the same genre as yours. Listen to these songs and comment on them. As you interact with others, you will find that they will feel obligated to repay the effort. In so doing, you can actually get some plays and followers.

Pay for Plays

If you are wondering how to buy SoundCloud plays it’s very simple. All you need to do is find a reputable service that will organize natural plays for you. We are not talking about bots but actual plays. You decide how many plays you want, you pay for it and you get what you pay for. It’s probably the easiest way to get plays.

Conclusion

Increasing your plays on SoundCloud requires a combination of efforts and not just a single approach. We have listed a couple of ways through which you can grow your plays on this platform. Take a holistic approach, buy plays and also go for organic play growth. A combination of these two approaches will yield a faster result.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
