As a musician, especially one just starting out on your own, you may hear about “free Soundcloud plays” and be tempted to jump on those opportunities.

“You mean I can get Soundcloud reposts and free Soundcloud likes?”

The sad truth is that those offers are too good to be true. Often times free isn’t really free. They will come at a cost to your brand.

It can be very tempting to take advantage of these “opportunities” to help you grow a more legitimate audience, but there are scams lurking in these free boosts that could ultimately hurt your budding career.

This post will take a look at and explain how you can avoid these scams.


One of the biggest scams that you will see is something like this: “Pay $50 for a repost and you could get 150k followers!” That can be an enticing investment, but more often than not you will not get a good return on your money.

For channels that are just starting out, you may only see a 1% increase in engagement with offers like this. Reposts may or may not even happen, because they do not guarantee it. While this may not necessarily be a scam, it won’t always work as well as you hope it will and is not worth your money.

These are very common on SoundCloud and other social media sites. Even worse, some will offer these services for free, then once you have been reeled in, they change their pitch and make you buy the service. These are scams and don’t fall for their claims.


While the above scenario is sketchy and misleading, getting scammed out of some money is not the only thing to worry about in these situations. Some of these scammers want to compromise your account and gain unauthorized access to steal your personal information.

This could be to access credit card information or to steal your identity. This is obviously a bad scenarios to be in, so be smart and careful when dealing with “free” promotion.


Because more than just your SoundCloud account is at stake, try to avoid theses free promotion scams. The best protection against these scams is doing research. Sometimes all it takes is a simple Google search on a company or individual and you can easily find out if they have a history of nefarious deeds.

If you are looking for plays, likes, and reposts, you can find reputable companies that have a proven track record. Always talk to the person before working with them as this is the best way to get a read on them.


Be careful to not do anything that will violate the terms and conditions of Soundcloud. It is a great platform to promote musicians and getting kicked off will hurt your career.

Lastly, always trust your gut. Your first instinct is usually right, so if it tells you to run you should listen.


Be smart when it come to "free SoundCloud plays/listeners." Do your due diligence to make sure their offer won't hurt your brand.

When you make a plan to release some music, be sure budget for organic promotion. It cost money, but it will be some of the best dollars you spend.

With an already buzzing YouTube audience of over 400K+ subscribers, Kid Travis wanted his Instagram profile to start gaining some of that same traction.

While you can get some spill over audience from YouTube, Kid Travis knew that Instagram ad campaigns could boost his presence on IG even further!

He discovered that trying to run Instagram ads yourself vs. having us add our years of experience and expertise to them made a huge difference!

His main goal was to achieve new followers who are seriously interested in his journey as an artist.

Kid Travis already had amazing talent but needed to combine his music genius with some marketing expertise to get the best of both worlds.

We were able to bring out the heart of his music through paid ads by editing & optimizing his existing videos and properly researching and structuring his ad campaigns.

The end results: We were able to consistently and predictably gain followers averaging between $0.25-$0.35 per follower (including a bulk of the promotion being done in high cost English speaking countries such as United States, United Kingdom, Australia, & Canada) resulting in around 4,000 new, engaged followers/month on Instagram.
