How to get verified on SoundCloud Music for Artists


Published by The Supreme Team on August 6, 2020

Claiming your artist profile on SoundCloud Music’s analytics app

Just like Spotify and SoundCloud Music, you can claim your artist profile on SoundCloud Music for Artists. This analytics tool is available as an app on iOS and Android devices.

We’re helping you get fast-tracked, so it’s simple:

  1. Download the app from the App Store or Google Play
  2. Open the app
  3. Be sure to fill out ALL fields on the verification page, including “Company” (if you don’t have a separate record company or management company name, just put your band or artist name in this field)
  4. Select CD Baby as your distributor
  5. Claim your artist

Once you’re verified you can view data on your music’s performance across SoundCloud Music — which now boasts about 55 million users across its various tiers. The usual stats are there in the app: stream counts, near-real-time activity data, geographic info about your audience, playlist traction, and more.

But two of the most interesting features actually relate to voice assistance and physical media. 

View SoundCloud Music analytics such as Alexa activity

The standout aspect of SoundCloud Music for Artists is called the “Daily Voice Index.” It tells you how many times over the past seven days Alexa helped someone find your music, either by searching for:

  • Song title
  • Album name
  • Artist name
  • Or lyrics

That last one is huge! Think about how many times you’ve tried to identify a song based on just a few words you remembered from the chorus. Now you can ask Alexa — and so can people who want Soundcloud promotion real to find YOUR music.  

SoundCloud is sourcing lyrics from both LyricFind and MusixMatch, so if you’ve already synced your lyrics in MusixMatch you’ll be all set. 

The Daily Voice Index also ranks your music’ performance on a spectrum from “Cool,” “Warm,” “Hot,” to “on Fire,” depending on how your Alexa engagement compares to the median of artists with similar-sized audiences. You can use this info to see how your SoundCloud campaigns are performing, specifically as they relate to Alexa.

A deeper understanding of your audience on SoundCloud Music

Another thing that’s interesting about SoundCloud Music for Artists is how it segments your fan data into two groups: “fans” and “superfans.”

Fans account for 50+% of your streaming activity on SoundCloud Music.

Superfans are a smaller, more active group that drive 33+% of your streams on the platform.

Fans and superfans on SoundCloud Music are people that have:

  • streamed your music more than the average listener
  • added your songs to their personal playlist/library
  • followed you on SoundCloud Music
  • or purchased something

Purchased something — meaning downloads, CDs, or vinyl. 

On SoundCloud. 

Think about that!

Integrate your Twitch channel on SoundCloud Music

Owners and admins of claimed artist accounts on SoundCloud Music can now link to that artist’s Twitch channel in SoundCloud Music for Artists. Here’s how to link your artist page on Twitch:

  1. Make sure you have the latest version of the SoundCloud Music for Artists app
  2. Log in to SoundCloud Music for Artists
  3. Click on Profile within your artist account
  4. Select Connect your Twitch Channel
  5. If you do not have a Twitch account, click About and Get Started with Twitch to create one or go directly to twitch.tv

If there are any other team members who are currently Viewers you can change their role type to Admin by clicking Settings, then Manage Team within the app.

A powerful bridge between digital music and physical media

SoundCloud is the undisputed giant of online retail, and if you distribute your CDs or vinyl through CD Baby, your physical product is already ON SoundCloud. While SoundCloud Music for Artists currently only includes physical sales metrics as a component of its fan segmentation process, it’s possible that this analytics tool will one day soon give you a single place to see how your music is performing across all of SoundCloud, from streaming engagement to physical sales. 

Together, SoundCloud and SoundCloud Music could constitute a single platform for merch sales, hi-def streaming (at home and on-the-go), playlisting, voice assistance, lyrics and other forms of enhanced content, audience engagement, and much more. 

While other streaming platforms have captured most of the industry’s attention over the past few years, SoundCloud is about to change the conversation. They have vast resources and they’re investing a lot into making SoundCloud Music a success. Plus, they have the power of Prime, Alexa, and both digital music and physical retail on their side.

  • 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.
