    Hi.
    Can any one share the basic idea about the thread subject?
    I can get plays, downloads, followers etc, but have no clue how to monetize them?

    One method is to post "previews" of the tracks, use a bot (*cough check my signature *cough*) to build buzz then link to ReverbNation or CDBaby for full track.

    Let Soundcloud do what it does, it's for music, not making money for non-music makers.

    Sort of like asking if making money on artwork is harder for people who aren't artists :). Way more difficult for people outside the industry... Hell it's difficult for people IN the industry. But if you can link up with a producer/artist who is talented and undiscovered (plenty of those on Soundcloud), you can help market their albums using tools to get more exposure - that's why bots are so effective.

    You can open a promotion service for new artists (they definitely need that).

    Is possible to making money with SoundCloud. But you must think what artists are serching for. Is this the secret in my opinion.

    if you post music that isn't yours, promotes something and without the original artist agreement you'll fly off SoundCloud instantly. They are actually very quick in cases like this.

    Aka exposure, feedback, promotion and recognition. At least thats what i am looking for.
    Make a promotional website/YT channel/Blog. Pump it with traffic and UV and then look for artists who would pay you bucks for getting featured/reviewed.
    You could propably also scam them naked. Become their shitty publisher. Who takes most of the profit and they provide you with content.

    I make money via soundcloud via my website www.DominatingTheCloud.com

    I use a bot to create accounts, then i manicure them for months to make them look more like real people than most real people look. Once they are perfect, I sell comments, likes, plays, reposts, etc via my website. I do not get tons of business but once people see the quality difference between me and other sellers they keep coming back. I have a small but fiercely loyal customer base.

    I have also been linking soundcloud to soundclick, which is a paid track selling service. I list tracks there, use soundcloud to create a buzz, and lease the beats to people for 20 bucks each.
