Ensure you title your track so your fans know exactly what they’re listening to.
Tip: When uploading content as a label, remember to title as ‘Artist Name – Track Title’
Include an image in your track upload to help identify your sound as official.
Tip: SoundCloud works best with 200 x 200 square images.
Use the description to provide fans with key information around your sound.
Tip: You can embed hyperlinks in here, and this information is prominently displayed when sounds are shared to Facebook, so make it count.
Your sounds list is like an activity stream, so your newest sounds are always on top. However, if you’re a Premium user you can utilize Spotlight. This feature allows you to pin selected sounds and sets (up to 5) to the top of your profile, ensuring featured content is always at the top of your sounds list.
Tags help fans find sounds easily. Adding in a genre tag provides better visibility for your sounds in search and can help your sounds appear in our Explore section.
Remember to add all relevant tags including sub genres, artist names, and guest artists to help ensure your sound shows up in search.
