Tactics for Logging In

May 31st, 2013

Hey Cloudseekrs!

We’ve been getting some messages regarding login problems. Cloudseekr is known to work best with Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Because there are issues with Soundcloud and certain browser plugins, you may need to uninstall/delete one of your browsers completely and then reinstall it to make sure all of the plugins have been wiped clean. Then use this browser for Cloudseekr and don’t add on any plugins!! Hope this helps.

Using the “Comment” feature on Cloudseekr

May 22nd, 2013

Hey Everyone,

When using the comment feature for Cloudseekr, please be sure to set the number of comments “total posts per day” to less than 100. This will give you better results! Sometimes Soundcloud is a bit finicky when you put a number over 100. Cheers!

How to get more follows on Soundcloud Using Cloudseekr

May 6th, 2013

Hey Music Marketers and Cloudseekr users!

We wanted to share a useful tip with you which will help you increase your number of follow backs using Cloudseekr. When you run a harvest user campaign, it would be useful to use the “more than/less than” fields for both “followers” and “tracks”. We would suggest setting the number of “followers” to “less than 500-1000″ and “tracks” to less than 10-15. Remember, most people who are already well established with over 1000 followers may not notice when you follow them hence may not check you out where as someone with a newer profile will be more likely to check out your music and profile. The same goes for the number of tracks a user has. Someone who has less tracks uploaded is probably a bit newer to Soundcloud and will notice more when you follow them. Hope this helps. Cheers!

How to Market Your Music – Youtube vs Soundcloud

May 1st, 2013

Work it Like a Soundcloud Bot – Soundcloud versus Youtube
If you’re making music in any way, shape or form; you have probably tried promoting your music on both Youtube and Soundcloud. I certainly have. When I first started out in 2010, Youtube was my promotion tool of choice. Back in 2011, Youtube recorded over 3 billion views a day across the entire site. That’s more than the population in China! I also signed up for a Soundcloud account but only used it to store songs for fans to download. It wasn’t until recent times that I started to pay attention to Soundcloud much more. I began to find that Soundcloud was just as good of a promotion tool as Youtube, maybe even better even though there are fewer users than the Google partner. Here are some reasons why.

1. Soundcloud is the social media exclusively for musicians. Most users musicians, producers, dj’s and the like. Whether it’s funk, hip hop, dubstep or country you’re making the bottom line is, musicians understand and respect the amount of time it takes to create a musical piece. Therefore if a hip hop producer listens to your country song on Soundcloud, they’ll most likely appreciate it and perhaps leave a comment on your hard work. On Youtube however, if someone doesn’t like your song just because it’s something they’re not into, it’s very likely that you’ll get a thumbs down which I have to say is not the best reward for hours upon hours of hard work.

2. Music is the focus. If Youtube has over 3 billion views a day, imagine how many videos are uploaded to channels. Of these videos, only a percentage of them are music related. People go on Youtube to forage for videos of all different areas of entertainment and music is only one of them. Soundcloud however has one purpose, and that’s to get your music heard and for you to hear other people’s music. It’s what it’s made for!

3. Better chance of getting your song shared by somebody who has made a name for himself on social media. Whenever someone favorites a song on Soundcloud, it is automatically listed in the feed of all followers of the user who favorited the song. Some of these users may have thousands of followers and if one of these people like your song, you will get exposure to their fan base as well. Although Youtube also shows a stream of user likes, comments etc, it is not nearly as visible or efficient.
Ideally you should be leveraging all social media sites in order to get your music out there, but if you have to choose one, I would focus on Soundcloud.

How To Promote Your Music – 3 Tips On Using Soundcloud

How To Promote Your Music – 3 Tips On Using Soundcloud

Those interested in making and/or promoting their favorite music have most likely attempted using YouTube or SoundCloud to gain recognition. Regardless of genre, promoting music via YouTube and SoundCloud has been proven to be extremely effective. In 2010, YouTube was the most popular tool of choice when it came to promoting music. It’s not surprising, really, as it is well known that YouTube gets more than 3 billion views a day! SoundCloud is another popular media platform, one that many are not using to its full potential. Some people have used SoundCloud to simply keep track of songs or provide fans with a way to download their favorite artist’s music. However, it can do much more. In fact, it has the power to out-compete YouTube and here are three ways that will get users the most out of Soundcloud as a music marketing tool:

Follow Other Users: On SoundCloud, there is the ability to ‘follow’ other people. One of the easiest ways to get noticed is to take notice of others. Whenever someone is followed they receive a notification and, more often than not, the person being followed will usually return the favor. Even just taking a look at similar profiles and following people with the same musical interests will boost publicity. Don’t follow any and everyone though, be genuine, selective and appreciative of others. It’s not just about the promotion of music, it’s about connecting with people that have the same views and interests.

Favourite tracks: Show interest in others by marking similar artist tracks as favorites. ‘Favorite’ tracks will appear on music profiles, thus ensuring that people with the right taste in music will be exposed to, and will appreciate, the work on offer. Tracks that have been marked as favorite generate notifications and the artist that has had their track liked will often return the favor when they find out. Users are able to see what tracks have been marked as favorites on profiles they view and this can lead to a lot of good exposure to people who might like the music which is being promoted.

3. Send out some SoundCloud messages. If you really like somebody’s song, you might want to let them know personally by sending them a message. Be cordial and tell them that you really appreciate their craft and the time they’ve put into their music, production, composition etc. Everyone likes a genuine compliment so if you’re giving someone honest good feedback about their music, they will more than likely click on your profile and check you out. This is a great way to build relationships as well.

These are the three simplest ways to get the most out of SoundCloud and its music promotion capabilities. Social media sites, especially those centered around music, are an excellent way to connect with potential fans. http://www.cloudseekr.com offers a free Soundcloud promotion tool.

One Simple Trick To Help You Get Soundcloud Plays – Make Your Logo Pop!

April 12th, 2013

This REALLY simple trick will help you build brand awareness and build intrigue amongst other users when using Soundcloud. Have you ever gone to comment on people’s tracks and found a user who has commented EVERYWHERE? I found a user of such caliber recently and the first thing that caught my eye was his profile logo. It was very unique and definitely stood out. I didn’t bother to read all of his comments because they were literally everywhere. However, without even reading his comments, I knew which tracks he commented on with a very quick glance because his logo stood out. This prompted me to think about ways to make my logo jump out at people. I’m not saying you should change your logo, but perhaps do things to it to make it stick out. This will help brand yourself and when people start seeing your logo everywhere as timed track comments, they will get curious and want to check out your profile which will lead to more exposure and more plays.
