Using SoundCloud as a promotional tool

Having a SoundCloud group for your app is definitely a worthwhile idea. I suppose the only time it wouldn't be a good idea is if your app is an fx app and so produces no actual output of its own. But if your app is a synth (preferably with a sequencer and or recorder ) then having a Soundcloud group makes a lot of sense. It's a nice simple way to get users to submit tracks made with your app and allows you to show off what can be done with the app. 

Starting off with your group isn't hard at all. Just get yourself a free soundcloud account if you don't already have one and then create a group. Start out by putting in some of your own example tracks or sounds. 

Make sure you connect your soundcloud account to your Twitter and facebook accounts. 

From there it's not going to be difficult to get users to put their tracks into your group but you should also keep an eye out for people using a tag of your app's name to encourage them to place it into your group. 

Keeping on top of your group isn't hard work. It shouldn't take you long to stay on top of who's making tracks with your app. Track the appropriate tag(s) and it can take just a few minutes a day. 

So soundcloud can be another very useful tool for marketing your app and needn't take a lot of time to keep running. Try it out.
