Introducing the New Dashboard on Repost by SoundCloud
May 30, 2022
We get a lot of questions about the On SoundCloud Premier partner program. So, today I’m going to cover how the program works, the strategy behind it, and how, by joining the Repost Network, you can take full advantage of it.
In SoundCloud CEO Alexander Ljung’s own words1,
People need to recognize two things: One is that music is important for almost everyone on the planet, meaning there are potentially billions of customers, and also that it’s going to be a real struggle to get billions of people into a subscription service. So if you want to monetize billions of people, you need both ad-supported and subscription [models] to work. The question is, how can you make that work without giving everything away for free? For us, it’s about giving creators multiple tools for monetization.
We interpret this to mean that the On SoundCloud Premier program is the first step in Ljung’s plan to give creators the tools they need to monetize their music on the platform.
Currently, there are three usage tiers on SoundCloud2:
Of the usage tiers, the premier tier is the newest. In fact, as of September 2015, the program is just over a year old3. Since its launch, SoundCloud has brought on over 1000 channels to the premier tier.
Premier users gain access to all of the features of the pro unlimited tier (e.g. unlimited uploads, spotlight promotional tool, quiet mode), plus more comprehensive stats, geographic control, promoted tracks and profiles, and most importantly, revenue sharing. Read more here.
Here at Repost, we love the On SoundCloud Premier program. We see it as the perfect solution to the problem that Ljung talks about above. As both a dedicated partner with SoundCloud and an aggregator, it is our mission to not only help bring the SoundCloud premier program to as many people as possible, but to help them make the most of it.
We do this in a number of ways:
Essentially, Repost is working to be the perfect complement to SoundCloud’s rock-solid On SoundCloud Premier program. We’re happy to be here to shepherd you through the On SoundCloud Premier program so that you can make the most of it.
