There are a number of services out there promising SoundCloud users tens of thousands of reposts which will result in more subscribers/followers for their SoundCloud channel. This can seem like a great deal, especially for new and aspiring artists who want to get a good head start in the music industry.
But what is the real lowdown on reposts and paid promotions in general? H Academy recently came out with a research piece on this matter that is filled with interesting data and shocking results. The average repost only generates plays equal to 3-4% of that channel’s following. And for many SoundCloud channels, getting only 3-4% of their channels’ 1,000+ followers is not an encouraging number.
