The Soundcloud Bible is a comprehensive guide on how to use the website to its fullest but surprisingly it isn’t free. It’ll set you back $19 – that’s about R 230! One would naturally assume that Soundcloud would want to supply an in-depth manual on how best to use their site, but here’s the thing – it’s not actually written by Soundcloud.
The Soudcloud Bible has been independently written by a chap named Budi Voogt and aside from co-founding his own label – Heroic, he also does management for artists such as San Holo, Ark Patrol and Ducked Ape. He also writes about music marketing and digital media.
A 130-page PDF guide for DJs and producers, the Soundcloud Bible will give you a thorough understanding of how to use the platform to its fullest and since it is one of the strongest marketing tools for any producer – and to a lesser extent – DJs, those that have Pro accounts should probably consider the benefits of knowing all the ins and outs of using the site.
Most users simply deposit their tracks or mixes on the website and share it every once in a while. After the initial excitement of making your track (or mix) public it can be a rather barren place to be if you’re not getting any traction.
The Soudcloud Bible offers some invaluable tips on how best to get your music to the right people and make sure it is heard by more than just your friends. The guide actually goes beyond just the mechanics of using the website – it actually educates on how to do a proper music release and gives you a better understanding on how digital marketing of one’s music works.
As with anything, the more knowledge you can empower yourself with, as an independent artist, the more chance you have of succeeding.
This testimonial quote kinda says it all….
“Budi’s SoundCloud and music marketing advice should be recommended learning for any artist or industry professional looking to effectively grow audiences and revenue in today’s industry.” – Andrew Apanov, Founder of WeSpin and Dotted Music
