Watch your plays rise in real-time on SoundCloud as their statistics now keep track and show you their performance as it happens.
SoundCloud’s statistics now update in real-time so you can watch as every play builds on your music. You will now have access to instant insight on your listeners and how your tracks are performing.
The new ‘Today’ view has been added to the statistics page and shows you a breakdown of plays throughout the day. You can see when people are logging on and listening, for example if your plays are peaking in the early afternoon which you can use to advise when you upload, promote and more. Of course you can also see what’s happening right now and count the plays rising.
In their announcement SoundCloud said: “Whether you just shared your very first upload or have over a million followers, creators know the importance of monitoring a track’s performance, particularly in key moments such as a new release or during a promotional push. Culture moves fast and you need to stay on top of your tracks, catching and capitalising on each surge, spike, and share right when it occurs.”
You can view your real-time stats for ‘Today’ either from the SoundCloud website or from the SoundCloud Pulse app. From the drop down menu select ‘Today’ and you can see the latest totals, graphs, and top lists. It doesn’t update on the page but it’s as simple as a page refresh to get the latest, on-the-minute statistics.
SoundCloud closed of their announcement, saying: “We’re excited about the year ahead and hope you are too! We look forward to bringing you even more tools to empower you to continue on your creative journey.”
