How To Become The Next Hot Artist On Soundcloud And Spotify

Written by Jaron Lewis

Getting your music out there and actually getting heard are two very separate entities but with the increased usage of streaming services like Spotify and Soundcloud, the time is ripe for new and upcoming talent.

The odd listen here or there is nice when you’re starting out but when you’re aiming for the top then you need to push yourself more than ever. These few simple tips will get you one step closer to becoming the next hot artist on these services.

It's Hard Work

If you look at the top artists 2017 on these services then they all have one thing in common – they’ve worked hard to get where they are. Getting to the top demands a lot of work and effort on your behalf but the benefits you reap are will outweigh this massively. Spotify and Soundcloud are two very different services but used in tandem they can really kick-start your career.

The Basics

Although soundcloud is a free streaming site, spotify has fees for uploading and where most record labels will handle distribution, for independent artists there are many third party clients that will help to get your music onto spotify. These do cost varying amount of money so shop around and make sure you’re getting the best deal for you.

In order to boost your listens on services like spotify then the more places you put your music the better, and that’s where working with soundcloud can really make your life much easier. Free streaming services such as youtube and soundcloud really will draw people in and this will compel them to look for more of your music.

Get In Touch With Bloggers

If you want to be considered one of the top new artists 2018 then you need to make sure that you’re getting your name out to as many bloggers and journalists as possible. Self promotion isn’t something that comes naturally to most of us but simply sending your music out everywhere you can will generate new listens and get you into that list of popular music artists 2018. Building hype really does make your name grow quickly

High Quality

No matter where you’re uploading your music then you need to make sure that the quality is up to scratch. The days where simply adding an mp3 to music to generate interest are long gone and high quality audio is key if you want people to take you seriously.

Having said that, you also need to make sure that any images you use also look good, the less effort you put into the look of your product, the less likely people are to listen in the first place.

In Conclusion

In a world where everyone is vying to be the next big thing, learning to make the most of the services that are available to you will really make you stand out from the crowd. For this reason your best bet is to follow the tips above, spread your name as far and wide as possible and be proud of what you’ve achieved, it takes a lot to have faith that you’ll make it big but persevere and the rewards will come.
