How can I prepare my uploaded beats for sharing?

Adding information to your uploaded beats can help people find it easier and can help you when you want to share it with others.

Think About

  • Where can you share your beats so others can hear them?
  • Where are the best places to share them and why?
  • What are your goals in sharing your music/beats? Who might hear them?
  • Who do you want to hear your music/beats?
  • How do you get more people to listen to or discover your music?

Get Started

Now that you have uploaded a beat to SoundCloud let’s figure out how to share it with others.

  1. Listen to the music you uploaded to SoundCloud
  2. Consider what genre of music it fits into
  3. Determine what types of hashtags you could use to help people find and categorize it (for example #BoomBap or #Afrobeat)
  4. If you haven’t already done so, add the genre and tags into your track information
