Artist Data

With the unprecedented amount of listener data the streaming platforms are offering to artists, it is possible to increase the streaming numbers using cues from data. By understanding who your listeners are, which songs are performing best and what are the top playlists you perform well, you can increase your success in the streaming area and get a consistent revenue stream.

So, here are 5 ways to use artist data to boost streaming plays:

1) Look up your top streamed tracks and analyze why they performed well ( Number of Saves, Playlist adds)

When looking at your streaming data, you should first understand what your top performing songs are and why they perform well.

For this, the first thing you would look at the total number of streams and listeners. If you’re in a lot of playlists, the total number of streams can be misleading, so make sure you also look at the listener number. The listener number will be the unique number of listeners.

The listener engagement can further be measured by the number of saves. This is the number of people who liked your track and added it to their personal libraries. Compare the number of saves to the number of listeners. The ratio of Saves/Listeners can be a good indicator if the song is well liked or not.

Once, you make a list of your top performing songs, note down the mood and genre of these songs. Check out if they got placed into any playlists. By understanding which songs are performing well, you can create more songs based on that mood and style.

 

2) Analyze Listener Demographics (Location, Age, Source of Streams) and Understand Which Song Performed best in which Demo

The second thing you should be doing is to understand who your listeners are, where do they live and how they listen to your music. Fortunately, the streaming platforms give us the location data so we can see where listeners live and which song they listen to the most. Aside from streaming, this is also useful data for booking shows in the future.

Furthermore, you can see the age groups and gender information. This is also good to understand which demographic do you perform the best.

The last part would be to understand how they listen to your music. Did they find you from an online article, or playlists? If they found you on a playlist – was it an editorial or algorithmic playlist? This is all important information to analyze.

 

3) Analyze title keywords of playlists you performed well in terms of genres and moods (Including Editorial Playlist adds)

Playlists are very important to understand how you get new listeners. User generated playlists, which are usually smaller, are great to build up your analytics. One of the most important criteria to get into editorial and algorithmic playlists are building up great analytics.

So, once you get into a few user generated playlists, look at the playlists you perform the best. This would be not only the playlists you get the most streams, but also most listeners and saves. If you have, you can also look up your editorial and algorithmic playlist placements to understand which keywords, genres and moods are they defined with. Understanding why you got in will only make your job easier in the future to be placed on a large playlist again.

 

4) Look up artists on ‘Listeners Also Like’ and try to understand what do you have in common (Genre, Mood…)

Another great way to analyze your streaming data is to look up artists listed under ‘listeners also like’ on your analytics page. This list is based on user behavior aggregated from similar playlist adds and saves to you. Basically, if you and X artist were on the same playlist, and then a user saved both of you to their playlist, or better, created a new playlist featuring yourself and X artist, you are flagged by the algorithm and now associated with that artist.

Check out the pages of these artists on your list and listen to their music. Try to understand what do you have in common with them. Are you in a similar genre? Or is it that your music are in similar moods? What makes a listener associate you and X artist together? This would be a very valuable exercise at its worst, and a potential partnership with the X artist at it’s best.

 

5) Get more listeners to follow your profile, so they will be notified when you upload a new track

Your follower number is one of the biggest indicators that you have good engagement with your listeners. Your followers are people who are most likely to not only check out your music, but also to buy your merchandise and come to your shows. They are current and potential fans. So, having a good follower/listener ratio is a great sign, as it shows how much of the listeners you are able to convert into fans or followers. Moreover, followers will be notified first when you upload a new track. Your songs will be on their ‘Release Radar’ playlists, so they will be the ones who will save your tracks to their libraries and get your analytics numbers up.

 

Final Words

By analyzing and understanding your top performing songs, you can deliver new songs who might potentially be successful as well. Moreover, you can use streaming data to look into user demographics such as age, gender and location.

The location data can additionally be very helpful for booking future gigs. Moreover, by looking into other artists your listeners listen to, you can understand why listeners choose to listen to your music. And finally, by getting more followers, you can convert your listeners into the fans, who will ultimately be very useful for you to increase your revenue as an artist.

  • What are you going to do for me?
    We give your release a boost by getting it in front of a real audience. We provide you with a "first wave" of engagement that you may not be able to get otherwise. What happens next is up to you and your music.
  • How long do reposts last?
    Reposts stay active for 48 hours. After the first 48 hours, your reposts are too far down the stream to be noticed. Removing them keeps an influencer's channel from being over-used and outdated.
  • Will I go VIRAL from one organic soundcloud promotion?
    The truth is, probably not. Unless you have the next “The Box” in your pocket, you are probably not going to blow up from one promotion. We are not going to bullshit our clients and make false promises. Think “Brand Building” not “Overnight Sensation.”
  • Will I get noticed by labels?
    The best way to get noticed is to keep your brand in front of an audience while producing top quality material. Labels want real artists who already have a brand together, who self-promote and have a good presence on Soundcloud and Spotify. Please, don’t expect to send out some reposts and get signed. This is the most competitive business in the world.
  • Can I have the links to your influencer channels? 
    No. It took us many years to build our network.
  • How many is a million?
    The number represents the total amount of followers your song is shared with. It doesn’t mean that your track will be reposted by a million influencers.
  • Can I split an order between multiple songs?
    We require a minimum of 1 million reposts per song when splitting an order. The minimum order you can split between two songs is 2 million reposts.
  • Can I change the link to my song?
    Unfortunately, no. The organic Soundcloud promotion can't be forwarded. It is okay to change the title or other meta-data, just not anything that affects the link.
  • What if no one likes my music? 
    If we can't get anyone to repost your track, we will refund all of your money.
  • Are the organic SoundCloud followers real people who will become fans?
    They are fully organic, real, living people who have downloaded other music from our fangates and given the option to follow you. Once they are following you they will receive your music in their streams and it's up to you if you connect with them and build your community. This is how to turn them into "Superfans."
  • Will they immediately like my music?
    New followers are not automatic "fans" and will probably not engage your tracks right away. You have to engage them by streaming good music, following them back, comment on their stuff, and chatting with them.  Build your community.
  • How Long does it take to gain 1000?
    Once the campaign has started, you can expect 1 week per-1000.
  • How can I track the progress of a campaign?
    Watch your organic Soundcloud followers grow on the Pulse app or in Notifications on the website.
  • Can I change the link to my profile after I order?
    No. Unfortunately, the promotions can't be forwarded. It is okay to change the title or other meta-data, just not anything that affects the link.
