    I am looking for a bit of advice.

    I am a producer of electronic music and also own a record label.

    As most of you know, social media is pretty much everything for someone in this industry.

    I am just wondering how you would go about the promotion side of things. I am trying to find some bots or advice that will help me.

    I need to get more REAL targeted likes (I am doing Facebook Ads at the moment but can only afford a small budget, so it is working slowly but steadily).

    I need to try and get a lot of plays, favourites, followers and comments on Soundcloud to make myself seem popular so people will be more interested, however the services are a lot of money, does anyone know a working bot. I can only find bots that play and comment and not favourite and repost.

    Also, I want to try and get as many plays on my song on Youtube as possible, what is the best way to go about this?

    I have learnt so much on this forum already and any help on my specific situation would be amazing.

    With my experience in the industry, the amount of plays, likes, followers etc are way less important than interaction with followers and more importantly the quality of the music itself. If the music is good and you're a likeable producer, followers will do the sharing for you. However with this in mind, if you want to a little boost to get you started, check out the marketplace on the forum, there's loads of cool and cheap services that will suit your needs.

    I believe that your statement is true to an extent and from the people that listen to my music I get a great response, however I just can;t seem to get enough people to listen.

    I cant find a decent Soundcloud bot anywhere, let alone one that even favourites tracks. I can't afford to spend out each time we release a track from people that supply this service as it isn't cheap.

    If you know of anywhere that I might be able to find this, that would be great!

    It sounds like you have a genuine business, so please do not mess up with bots but rather focus on real engagement.

    I can imagine that it's a strange advice to find on a black forum, but i do think it's a right thing to do. Sometimes people think that is a lot of work, but it's really not if you use good social media management software like buzz bundle http://www.link-assistant.com/buzzbundle/. I'm not sure if they support soundcloud, but they do support youtube, facebook, twitter, google+, linkedin and lots of other networks. You'll just have all the relevant conversations found for you, and then you'll reply right from the software. It'll take just a couple of hours per week, but it'll have a much better effect of the reputation of your brand.
