I've been posting my tracks on Soundcloud, and i have a Pro unlimited subscription. I have been getting a lot of plays due to me promoting my track to my friends, but I have not been getting any plays from soundcloud itself
. I have gotten near 1000 total plays
in the last week, but only 6 of those plays are from related tracks and stations
. Every other play has been played by one of my friends or family that I linked the song to
. This is not good. I want to reach an audience, not just stay in my small circle of friends.
How do I reach out to actual people? Why isn't Soundcloud promoting my music? Why is my music not being included on related tracks or stations? What am I doing wrong? What should I do?
Also, how exactly do the tags on my songs affect how Soundcloud perceives my music? What is the best way to tag my music?
