How to grow your audience on Spotify and SoundCloud?by Deep Gold Deep Gold's Music in Maine
Your audience is always looking for new music. Do you think your music has what it takes to satisfy their appetite? If yes, then streaming platforms like SoundCloud and Spotify can offer plenty of opportunities for indie artists like you to be heard and connect with niche audiences who genuinely dig your music and want to support you. There is no arguing the fact that people love and trust music streaming platforms for discovering, but in order to get the most out of these platforms, you will need to harness them the right way.
Verifying your profile is one of the first steps towards your online musical success. A verified checkmark or star not only implies that you are a legitimate musical artist but also gives you greater control over your profile as well as access to useful stats.
Needless to say, the more active you are on these platforms, the more likely you are to get noticed by your audience. But what exactly does being active means? Well, it simply means keeping your audience engaged at all times by regularly releasing and updating your music. For better engagement, you may also want to link your artist profile to your website and share it on all your social media handles. This is highly valuable for musical artists who are only beginning as they need to give a plug to their profile and build up their following.
Keep up your online presence and broader PR efforts
If you do succeed to catch in an audience (no matter how big or small), do everything you can to leverage it and keep that momentum going. Strengthen the relationship with your audience by inviting them out to yourshow. If you have been made a feature of and if your budget allows for it, you can also consider working with a PR agency to get the most you can out of it and roll it into even greater opportunities.
All things being said, if you have not gotten any traction so far, you do not have to panic or call it a day. It may seem like artists go viral overnight, but polishing your abilities and building real buzz takes time.
