    I am just wondering if anyone has any tips to share or bots that will help in increasing exposure of my music. I already have a reasonable following but there is people who have a smaller base following getting ridiculous amounts of obviously real plays and I just can't figure out how they go about promoting.

    I do all the usual stuff, like send music to blogs (although they pretty much never get opened), reddit and other social bookmarks, social media marketing, I have my own website etc. I would just appreciate if anybody could give any tips on driving traffic to my music, preferably on Soundcloud (I have Soundcloud manager but with Soundcloud recently taking away private sharing it's not much use), whether its paid or unpaid, it would be brilliant. Also, what bots would you recommend for these purposes if any?

    I cant name any bots but if you search a bit you will find soundcloud bots, datpiff bots, and even a livemixtape bot.

    I know on SEOclerk you can get 60k+ plays for like $5

    Thanks for all the help so far. Soundcloud have clamped down on so many features, that the bots are pretty much useless now. I currently am improving my following on all social media accounts daily, however it just seems that it's not actually ever going to get me the mass amount of plays that certain artists are getting. Is there anyway to find out where this exposure is coming from?

    I was trying to think of a way to use xrumer or scrapebox to get a lot of traffic, maybe event to my website where I host my music as well, any ideas?

    The only way to promote music properly is real promo resulting in plays from Humans.

    X amount of REAL plays = X amount of new fans = X amount of Sales.
    IMO the best way to promote music is via live gigs, radio online & offline, club play, etc etc,. there is no shortcut with music promo.

    BurnerBrothers currently offers one of the very few legitimate forms of music promotion available utilising Spotify.

    The roi on music sales unless it is merch or concert tickets is so low that it is not worth doing, the only thing I would reccomend it to write good music.Trust me, 1 face to face meeting is worth more than 1000000 fake song views.

    I have been promoting music since 2007, and so far the best way to promote music is FACEBOOK!

    Find large music related pages and ask the admins if they do paid posting, most of the people do paid posting.

    A fanpage with 1 million fans usually costs around $15 $35 per share.

    Brilliant idea, never though about doing that. What do you think about posting in groups on Facebook?
