Since CD Baby enables you to make all the music you distribute through us available on SoundCloud with the push of a button, I thought it’d be a good idea to list some of the ways you can use SoundCloud to promote and share your music across the web.
10 ways to promote your music with SoundCloud
1. Share your music publicly-
SoundCloud was designed to be the simplest way to store your tracks in one place and “push them out” to social networks, blogs, etc. You can easily share single tracks or “sets” (a playlist of songs that all appear in one waveform player) to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and more– or embed the SoundCloud player manually! Just click the “share” button on the player to get started sharing your music with the world.
When it comes to fan engagement, there are dozens of possibilities for sharing tracks and sets on SoundCloud: ask for feedback on alternate mixes, encourage your fans to create their own “perfect setlists,” post an untitled track and ask for fans to comment with their suggestions for the song name, etc.
2. Make it easy for bloggers to access your tunes-
SoundCloud makes it easier for you to do your own digital PR. Send your tracks to bloggers and journalists; you control whether they can download the tracks or simply stream them.
