The Pros and Cons of Buying SoundCloud Plays

These days, the potential power and value of social signals is far from a secret. In the right hands, social proof can transform the performance of any track or artist on SoundCloud. But as is the case with all marketing strategies, buying social signals isn’t for everyone.

So to make things that little bit simpler, we’ve outlined the primary pros and cons of buying SoundCloud Plays below. Consider these and you’ll be in a much better position to decide if and when to buy SoundCloud Plays, as a part of your wider marketing strategy:



  • Just as few Plays inspire very little confidence in a track, thousands of Plays suggest a track of much higher quality. If looking to generate interest in your work, it simply makes sense to present it as popular and credible.

  • SoundCloud Plays provide the opportunity to capitalize on the bandwagon effect. The greater the number of times any given track has been played, the more likely it is to be played by others.

  • If looking to attract the attention of influential people, record labels, promotional agencies and so on, social proof goes a long way. They’re hardly likely to take you seriously if your work has hardly been listened to by anyone.

  • The number of Plays a track collects has a direct impact on its likelihood of going viral. There are no guarantees when it comes to viral marketing, but popular tracks on SoundCloud are naturally interpreted as more shareable than their less popular counterparts.

  • SoundCloud Plays can be particularly influential when used alongside SoundCloud Followers, SoundCloud comments and so on. To build a strong contingency of social proof is to stand out as a valid authority in your niche.

  • Compared to many other marketing techniques, buying SoundCloud Plays is comprehensively inexpensive. In fact, social signals in general for SoundCloud can be purchased at affordable prices.



  • Unfortunately, buying SoundCloud Plays doesn’t amount to buying actual fans or Followers. Those who listen to your tracks to provide the Plays will not take an active interest in you as an artist, or your music.

  • Buying SoundCloud Plays alone isn’t enough. In fact, if you buy too many SoundCloud Plays in the absence of other social signals (comments, downloads, reposts, Followers), the whole thing could come across as suspicious.

  • Speaking of which, the last thing you want is to end up with the kind of spammy social proof that could wreck your reputation. If it isn’t 100% authentic, you don’t want anything to do with it.

  • Scam artists are all over the place - taking customers’ money and delivering nothing but problems in return. For the sake of your reputation and performance on SoundCloud, you need to stick with an established specialist you can trust.
