Mistakes To Avoid On SoundCloud

For years now, SoundCloud has continued being a premier platform for musicians who want to get feedback, upload original content, and check out new music. With over 100 million users, including President Obama, it’s probably wise to clean up your profile. You never know who might be looking. Here are 3 mistakes every SoundCloud user should avoid.

Not Filling Out Every Detail: Just getting your songs on SoundCloud isn’t enough. If your profile is missing important information, users will have little sense of who you are. Not to mention, a lack of contact info and social media links look unprofessional. Get the most out of your SoundCloud profile by filling out all the details.

Not Being An Active User: If the main objective is to upload music, SoundCloud makes it easy. But if you’re not replying to comments, sharing songs, or actively participating on the platform – you aren’t reaping all the benefits. Remember, your useful feedback equals their useful feedback.

Spamming: We’ve all seen that annoying person in the comments section. The one asking everyone to “check out their mixtape” because it’s “so fire”. That individual can do all the shameless promoting they want. However, very few people will take time to check them out unless they start giving genuine feedback.

Avoid these major mistakes so that your profile doesn’t get overlooked by users.
