For artists who want to gain visibility with their music, SoundCloud offers a Pro Unlimited subscription. It allows artists to benefit from ‘Promote on Soundcloud‘, a promotional tool to introduce their music to potential new fans by choosing their audience targeting.
👉 By joining SoundCloud Next Plus or Next Pro, you can benefit from a 25% discount on ‘Promote on SoundCloud‘ using the code GROOVER025 (for USD transactions, min. spend $25) or GROOVEREU (for EUR transactions, min. spend €25)
Details of the Next Plus & Next Pro memberships further down in the article.
SoundCloud is a free streaming site and allows listeners to access music from around the world for free – and without an account; a great way for independent artists to get their music out there.
That’s why we ask artists to send SoundCloud – or Youtube – links to Groover. This way, media and professionals can listen to their music easily and answer to the artists for possible shares, articles, playlist additions, label signatures, etc. Artists can also share demos, or unreleased tracks, by leaving them privately on SoundCloud. A valuable option for artists who would like to get feedback on their music before releasing it, or to get opportunities with media, labels, bookers, etc. and push the strategy around their musical project.
SoundCloud provides several types of subscriptions for musicians:
This is the free version of SoundCloud, with which you can :
- Upload up to 3 hours of music
- Enjoy lossless HD storage
- Access basic insights
The Basic version also gives you access to Dolby® audio mastering service for $4.99 per mastered track.
Repost by SoundCloud
The Repost subscription allows artists to :
- Distribute their tracks on all major music services
- Grow their audience with promotional tools
- Benefit from premium services to help them earn revenue
- Give revenue back to their collaborators
Repost by SoundCloud is priced at $2.50/month (if billed annually).
If you subscribe to the Repost version, you can promote your music on SoundCloud discovery pages and submit your tracks to playlists that may include your tracks in the top playlists on major music services.
And finally, let’s talk about the latest version that SoundCloud offers, and the main focus of this article:
