There are some companies where you can buy SoundCloud followers from download gates. While the people may be real, you have to be careful buying SoundCloud followers from these places. Sometimes you could end up in a download gate that has nothing to do with your genre of music, thus leaving you with a lot of followers but not much engagement.
The best way to get real, active, engaged SoundCloud followers and comments is through reposts to channels that are genre specific.
So again, steer clear of companies saying you can buy real active SoundCloud followers for cheap. Sure, there are people on Fiverr, Reddit, and other websites that are likely selling fake followers for a super low price, but you don’t have to be one of the people to buy them.
In the end, you want quality SoundCloud followers, not spam. Your best bet is to invest in quality reposts where your artist is heard by real listeners who voluntarily follow your channel. Gated followers can be ok, but only if you know what you’re doing.
More followers doesn’t necessarily equal better followers.
