    Looking for two things

    to build a real following of people that are into deep house. It seems the best way to do this is the follow and unfollow method, I was going to target people who comment on similar tracks. Any other ideas on how to build a real following? What are the best bots to use? does soundcloud have any restrictions or ban/black list users for doing this?

    Second how can I get a track to chart in the popular list of the explore section

    thanks for any help? Also if you can offer services I would love to get some quotes on costs?

    You can gain targeted followers on soundcloud by giving your downloads for free.
    Method that works for me is, Youtbe+Soundcloud and joining related genre groups.
    Post your sounds there, to submit your stuff to more than 2 groups, i guess you need to purchase premium membership.
    Comment other sounds, but dont beg others to check out your stuff, ppl dont like that.

    Reddit>
    Great source of traffic and possible followers.
    Post your links there and be active in commenting.
    Gain some comment karma and whatever you post in the future will bring you traffic to your soundcloud.
    You can promote your youtube videos and soundcloud tracks.
    Make sure you post different sources, if you promote only your sounds, it will look like spam and you will be banned.


    Youtube>
    Make sure you upload 2 minute samples to youtube, purchase some views and place soundcloud link in video description.
    Some thing like : Full version download available for FREE > soundcloud link

    And last thing, but most important...make good music :)

    cheers and good luck!
