    Hey guys,

    I started making music some years ago. I uploaded the music to youtube and soundcloud - with less succsess.

    After the years passed i discovered my passion for music again and this year made 2 tracks in a specific I started using a service to put on my music to all online stores and streaming services.
    I contacted playlisters / mixers and upload channels all over the internet.
    What can i say - my 2 tracks are going strong. I have 10k daily streams over all platforms and it is rising! Iam on some official spotify playlists, too.

    I completely know how soundcloud and spotify works and iam using methodes which works best.
    I made an in depth guide on how i did everything, sent me a message if you want that thing.

    Iam looking forward to a minimum of 150k monthly spotify listeners. I hope i can reach that after i published my next album at the end of the summer.

    Update: Iam on a good way, i have nearly 70k monthly listeners on spotify - that makes around 100k plays a month. My music got on a lot of different playlist and i see my music growing and my fans (spotify for artists calls them fans) getting more from day to day.
    A tip: My music quality isnt perfect, but its decent. Everyone who is a little bit into producting can make it. You just need to do a little work of course and know your audience. Uploading your music and wait for people find it will not work!

    I actually made an account for this topic, because I want to know how you did it. Could you e-mail me as I don't know how to send a private message?

    Not 100% sure because you get your money 2 months later. Calculations are around 400-500$
    You get like 0,0049 per play

    For all people who want the guide - iam giving it the last view changes to make it perfect.
