Four tips to help you grow your Soundcloud account quickly

Growing a Soundcloud account to a point where you have a consistent number of new fans being added every week can be difficult. Particularly as there is so much competition on the online service.

These four tips will help you grow your Soundcloud account quite quickly, however, and get your music a large number of plays.

Talk to your fans — As your music begins to get some attention on Soundcloud, people will start following you and leaving comments. When they do respond to their comments, ask them questions and ask for feedback.

People love to be able to interact with the artist whose work they enjoy, and will keep coming back to listen to your songs. As they do, your songs will get more promotion and so more attention by Soundcloud.

Promote your songs everywhere — Do not make the mistake of sticking to Soundcloud when it comes to promoting your work. Instead, promote it on forums, in chat rooms, on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest, and on websites set up for musicians to promote their work. You can also buy soundcloud plays to get things going. But social media in itself is probably the best marketing platform to get your mix into the ears of avid listeners.

Remember to ask your friends and family to promote your songs on their social media accounts as well.

Collaborate with other Soundcloud artists — There are millions of other artists on Soundcloud, and some of them will record similar music to yours.

Contact those whose music you like, and ask if they would be interested in collaborating with you. That could be by writing a song together, or recording a cover of each others’ songs. This can be a great way to get your music in front of new fans, as those fans of the artist you collaborate with will get a chance to listen to your work.

Start a conversation — When you upload new music, comment on it and ask fans for comments about what they do and do not like about it.

By starting a conversation, you get fans interested in your music and wanting to come back to participate again.

The Cautionary Tale of Game of Thrones, Don’t Rush Endings

Game of Thrones Final Season

This long awaited final season of game of thrones featured huge battles, monstrous dragons and of course, many, many deaths. It was highly anticipated among fans. The cast and crew worked hard not to let any spoilers out. This making the anticipation only grow.

 

Seasons Expectations

The last 7 seasons did very well. All over fans loved them. Almost without exception, they were received well. There were hundreds of theories and rumors going around about the final season. The episodes, while there were only 6 were going to be longer than in previous seasons. So, with the final season looming, people had high expectations.

 

Reality

The final season flopped where fans are concerned. Only about half the fans were ok with this rush job of a finale. And then there was the editing. Mistakes like leaving in the coffee cup were unforgiveable to some. Others were angry when the character Missandei was killed off. And finally, the ending just killed it for others. After 8 seasons of fighting the main characters simply pick a leader from among themselves. And despite being on opposite sides of the battle until now, they seem to easily agree. Making the whole story seem pointless.

 

Game of Thrones Legacy

Unfortunately, this final season has somewhat ruined Game of Thrones’ reputation. Many people who were waiting for all the seasons to be out before watching, now aren’t going to bother. While there were some amazing parts of the show, and the soundtrack was incredible, there were too many mistakes and too much of a rush to get it out for it to be a good ending. Not to mention the story telling fell flat and character arcs fell flat in the end. All in all, an incredibly loved show got a rush job for a finale and ruined the whole thing for many fans.

Drift Racing

Origin of “Drift Racing” is dated back to 1990s, when it started in Japan as a car racing technique. Drifting alludes to a motorsport and to a driving method where the driver purposefully over steers, which brings traction loss in the back wheels through turns, while keeping up vehicle control and a high level of exit speed. A simple drift is all about a car swinging sideways through a solo turn, but at a professional level, a driver may drift through numerous opposing whirls and curves with their rear wheels rarely touching the road.
