    Add a proper bio, proper links of the video's or music tracks that you want to promote, use the share buttons so that it can be reached to the audience easily, offer free tracks, share your Sound Cloud link to your social profiles, follow, follow and follow.

    Coleen - I worked in the music business for 20+ years doing music marketing. The best thing you can do to get people interested in your music is play live. It's not sexy and it takes a lot of work, but because of this, most people don't do it. In fact, most people today can't do it.

    Of course, if you're just looking to "get your music out there," giving tracks away on Soundcloud (or elsewhere) is great. Not a business model if you don't have an offer or income stream behind it though.

    I wrote a book on how to do this, which you might find helpful. musicianbook.com will take you to it on Amazon. audibletrial.com/musician will get you the audio book free with a trial to Audible.

    Good luck!

      This is such a good answer. It SO resonates with me. Thanks for sharing. I'll look for your book.

    Promote other musicians Coleen, release your fear of competition, make friends, co-create and you will gain traction.

    My friend and I co-promote each other in a different niche and even launched a podcast series. His channel but we both chat. After releasing our latest episode about 48 hours ago we have 9,000 plays and building. A few episodes have 50,000 plays. 600,000 plus between Sound Cloud and YouTube. Tap into the power of networking. You'll rock it out.
