It’s really easy to upload on Mixcloud, you can add details such as adding an image, title, tags etc. Our advice is to make your uploads look as neat as possible, and use the power of tagging to your advantage – more tips here.

4. Ask your presenters to repost

Repost is a very useful feature for radio stations, allowing users to repost your uploads onto their own profile, meaning more exposure for you and and your content.

A great example is London based NTS Radio: an independent station with dozens of presenters. You can see individual presenters such as Floating Points & Four Tet, the Rough Trade record store, beats maker Kutmah, or record label Erased Tapes reposting their NTS shows onto their own Mixcloud profiles.

5. Promote your profile and embed your shows

To reach the widest audience, you have to remind your fans about your content by sharing it on social media but also by embedding the shows on your own website. Our embeddable player widgets are similar to Youtube videos, and enable your shows to be playable on any webpage. More info here.

Best of all, Mixcloud offers FREE unlimited hosting and covers royalty payments on your behalf.
