Create first impressions

Let your music show your professional skill. Your portfolio will be known and loved by your followers and they are new to your talent. So let the music and tracks that you upload to impress your fans and also have the potential to keep them coming. Work on your music or tracks, avoid any silly mistake and let it create lasting impressions.

Avoid uploading everything you create

As an upcoming artist or musician, there are always tensions of getting recognized and accepted by listeners. However, this will lead to uploading every work you made on Soundcloud in other to impress them. Anyone that notice your songs will only try one or two of your tracks to see how good you are, not everyone will be impressed by your work, after listening to your tracks and not to your music, they will surely move on. Therefore, uploading all your works on Soundcloud will not impress anyone.
