SoundCloud has been busy letting producers know how to ensure their tracks reach the widest audience possible on the platform. Here are some key takeaways:

  • If you post on SoundCloud, the company advises, you should keep your artist and title descriptions clean and in the right format
  • When posting images, you should ensure they’re hi-res and attractive, and use the online tools to get them looking just right
  • It is important, says SoundCloud, to be consistent when adding information in descriptions
  • Genre and sub-genre information should be accurate and you shouldn’t go overboard here, which will confuse SoundCloud’s algorithms
  • You should take the time to build a proper SoundCloud discography, with EPs and albums clearly marked, helping your audiences to find your music chronologically

SoundCloud also points out that it is possible to make changes – update settings, tags, and artwork – on multiple tracks at once, and to create a new playlist from a selection of uploads. These automations can save a lot of time.
