How To Promote your soundcloud tracks as videos on youtube, twitter, facebook, &more
turn your Soundcloud tracks and music into videos with waveform animations that auto-play on social media

Getting people to listen to your music or Soundcloud track on social media can be difficult. Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram are increasingly becoming competitive spaces and Youtube doesn’t support mp3, song links, or Soundcloud tracks. Not too mention, social media has never done a great job of promoting audio content the way that it does for images & video.
If you are an emerging artist and you host your audio on Soundcloud or another streaming music platform, one creative way to promote your music on social media is to turn it into a video.
There are many different ways to accomplish this, including simply throwing your mp3 file into iMovie with an image and creating a static video file. However, viewers on social media may not know it’s a video since there would not be any motion included (it would just look like a still image).
Here at Wavve, we found that adding an audio waveform animation to videos featuring an image & audio is the best way to grab the attention of social media viewers. With Wavve, you can upload your own image and choose from a wide variety of animation styles to create beautiful videos that feature your audio. Check out a sample on Instagram:
