Introducing SC101: Even more creator education, straight from the source
This post comes from SoundCloud’s blog.
Whether your goal is to get to 1,000 followers or sell out your hometown’s venue, we’re committed to helping you take that next step in your career. And today we’re adding SC101 to our best-in-class educational programming for creators on SoundCloud, giving you even more ways to easily access the tools and resources you need to succeed.
With more than 20 million creators and counting, SoundCloud is a busy place, buzzing with creativity and brimming with opportunity for anyone, anywhere. But we realize that not all of you know exactly how you can use the features we offer or the time to read through the creator guide in full. SC101 are the cliff notes. We’re breaking it down and keeping it easy with really short videos that feature 95% v important info and ~5% footage of us being us. Because we know SoundCloud best, you can trust us to be your go-to authority on how it all works.
In two minutes, our SC101 videos give you the 411 on how to kickstart your music career on SoundCloud. From building a profile and writing an artist bio to tagging your tracks and sharing your work.
Each short video focuses on a different topic so some might be more relevant to you than others, but “Setting Up Your Profile” is a great place to start. We’ll tell you how to get discovered, share your story and stand out using your little patch of land on SoundCloud: your artist profile. It’s your introduction to fans, fellow creators and industry reps, so it’s important to make sure it accurately reflects your brand. In addition to instructions from us, the videos walk you through the product, so that you’ve got all the info you need to get started.
The easiest way to level-up your career is SC101. Watch and learn.
