Before You Start
So, you’re all set and ready with the audio you want to share, but before uploading your track, don’t forget to let people know more about yourself. We highly recommend referencing our Creator Guide
for ways to optimize your profile, and share your tracks.
Below are 4 essential profile elements to let other SoundClouders find you easily and learn all they need to know about you and your audio.
Display Name and Profile URL
If other users are searching for you
on SoundCloud, make locating your profile as easy as possible for them by making your Display Name and Profile URL clear, correct and concise. You can edit these as described here
When it comes to your Display Name be sure to display it as you would anywhere else, include spaces and capital letters.
How else can you spot the SoundCloud user you're looking for? One visual key is their Profile artwork. By heading to your Settings page you can upload the image you want to showcase on your SoundCloud profile.
Tip: Images must be under 2mb, and SoundCloud works best with at least 1000x1000px square images.
There is so much value in connecting with your fans on different social networks. Why not pad out your SoundCloud profile with up to 10 links to your website, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and more? Again, follow the lead on this article on our Help Center
to learn how to set this up.
One of the top requests we receive is to find a better way to control which of your tracks or playlists should be displayed when people visit your SoundCloud profile. That’s why we've introduced Spotlight
. Spotlight comes with all Pro accounts
and lets you pin up to five tracks or playlists to the top of your SoundCloud profile. Click here
