Did You Know #11: Comedy
Every Friday we are going to share a new tip that you may not have already known about how to use SoundCloud and in turn we hope this will improve your experience.
Did you know SoundCloud is a great platform for comedians to promote their content and themselves on the web? If you make podcasts you can distribute them easily to your social networks, embed on your own site and push to iTunes. And with our record capabilities there are all kinds of ways to create some spontaneous content or interact with fans!
Take podcast Mike and Tom Eat Snacks for example. They use SoundCloud to submit to iTunes but also embed on their site and promote via their social networks. Pretty rad!
Find out how to do this and more at our SoundCloud for Comedy 101.
