Promote On SoundCloud: New Self-Service Marketing Tool


Friday, November 15th, 2019 |

SoundCloud is launching a new feature Promote On SoundCloud that will allow creators to promote their original tracks to the top of listeners’ feeds and mobile homepages.

You may have noticed it when you logged on to the music service or if not, it will show up the next time you get on SoundCloud. Creators can set a budget and choose from advanced targeting options, much like on Spotify or creating targeting ads on Facebook.

“Promote on SoundCloud is an important addition to SoundCloud Premier, which offers creators wide distribution, more earning potential, and now, a way to proactively promote their music on SoundCloud,” said Gilles BianRosa, Chief Product Officer, SoundCloud in a statement. “By promoting on SoundCloud, creators get the added benefit of combining Promote on SoundCloud reports with SoundCloud stats to see comprehensive engagement data, a unique capability for creators who choose SoundCloud.”

The new service will be available to Premier members only. Now with Premier, creators can push to users in real-time, track plays with data on who their users are, distribute to major music services and get paid for your streams on SC and on other services. The distribution is free and artists get payouts for ad revenue every month.

This should be a good way for artists to push their music like on other services and potentially see direct results as new users click on their music and potentially discover an artist for the first time.

WMC is and has always been the lifeblood of the dance music scene. Never missed a year since ’96, I can’t imagine Amsterdam Dance Event or Ibiza Music Summit existing without the blueprint that WMC originated. Seeing this revived is absolutely essential to reunifying the North American scene surrounding electronic music and its fringes.

Before there was Ultra Music Festival, there was The Winter Music Conference, the annual coming together of the dance music tribes. Miami in March is a fundamental place to be from a business perspective, and has always given me endless opportunities for discovering new partnerships and talent. WMC brings together the dance music industry and surrounding culture like no other event in America. I’ve been attending WMC for nearly 20 years, and I’m very much looking forward to experiencing its evolution in 2019.

I’m so glad to see WMC rebooted with such thoughtful content and first-class curation. It’s been a long time since the industry had a must-do American event and this is it. The reborn WMC!

Miami has always been a place I’ve considered home and WMC was essential for me and the label in many ways. From showcasing our new music to keeping up with all the new artists and releases. It was the official kickoff of the year and I’m happy to see it thriving again.

I first went to WMC ’87, the year I started Big Beat. It was an incredibly inspiring congregation of indie labels, DJs, artists, songwriters, producers and dance music lovers dedicated to breaking and discovering new music. WMC has been instrumental in furthering the dance and electronic cause; keeping the community connected, vital and relevant, and serving as an amazing springboard for talent. It’s a fantastic crucible for the future of dance music. Long may it live.
