I just got an email yesterday from SoundCloud that said artists can now make money on their service! I was very happy when I read this. Now, I think it’s important to note that they’ve used the phrase “SoundCloud Premier Monetization.” Which means artist are not being paid royalties (unfortunately), so I’ll have to assume they must be doing something similar to YouTube with ad partners. This is interesting, because every time I’ve played music on SoundCloud, I haven’t noticed any ads. OK. I’m seeing them now.. LOL There’s some good music on SoundCloud! I mean, you sometimes have to do some digging, but it’s worth it when you find a gem you really like!!
