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.
