The new partner program named as On SoundCloud that comes with Partner, Pro and Premier. The Premier Tier is allows which lets creators make money from their tracks through advertising.
Here is What SoundCloud says about…
The Partner tier is for you if you’re just getting started: it’s free and easy to join the community, share your first track, receive feedback and get basic stats.
The Pro Partner level is a paid offering if you’re ready to take the next step On SoundCloud. Pros get more upload time, advanced tools, features like Spotlight and detailed stats. As an added benefit, at the Partner and Pro levels, we’ve increased upload time by 50% — you’ll get it automatically if you already have a Pro or free account.
At the Premier partner level, creators will have the opportunity to make money from their tracks through advertising. It also includes Pro features and more benefits. At launch, entry to the Premier tier is by invitation. Monetization occurs only on content when it’s played in the US. We’ll open up the program to more creators and more countries as fast as we can.
CEO of SoundCloud, Alex Ljung explains “The introduction of advertising is an important step for creators. Every time you see or hear an ad, an artist gets paid… In addition to supporting creators, ads will keep the service free and open for people to listen to SoundCloud.”
