Whoever visits your soundcloud page does not know you in real life. So if you profile looks poor, the visitor will assume you are not putting much effort in producing music. To be taken seriously and to attract followers you want your soundcloud page to be perfect. Here are a few tips and interesting facts!
1. A stunning logo
This is probably the most important part of your branding. It is crucial that your logo is unique and looks professional – it needs to be rememberable!
In a recent post we have collected some great websites which will help you to create your design if you have never created graphics before.
2. Impressive profile banner
The perfect soundcloud profile should have a great cover photo. Make sure it works well with your logo! The screenshot above is from the soundcloud profile of Midranger.
3. Contact information & bio
Make sure to introduce yourself in 2-3 sentences. Also include your booking /management / contact information, so people can get in touch with you! Furthermore, add some of your social links. Do not put more than five profiles here so it stays overseeable.
4. Match your profile URL with other platforms
Too many artists make the mistake to not customize their soundcloud profile url. Make it identical to your other social links! If you have a facebook page at facebook.com/bestmusicmaker then you want your soundcloud url to be soundcloud.com/bestmusicmaker.
5. And well… – bring quality content!
This should be self explaining. Upload your best tracks to your soundcloud profile and add an especially outstanding one to your “Spotlight”!
