One of the tasks which is vital for some of the advanced soundcloud promotional techniques I have talked about and will be talking about, is "how to bulk create accounts".
The premise is simple.
<li>1) Get a working proxy list</li> <li>2) Buy a list of working pop enabled email addresses</li> <li>3) Click "Create Accounts"</li>
And that really is it. But of course, the devil is in the details.
So how do you get a working list of proxies. Well Soundcloud Manager does scrape proxies for you. But you will be scraping the same list as every other Soundcloud Manager user, also every other proxy user and their dog could be using the same proxies. Proxies are just listed on public websites for anyone to come along and use, and they do, in their thousands.
Hence why many proxies do not work, they are maxed out. Or have been abused and removed. Or whatever, the short of it is, many proxies don't work off the bat. Regarding proxies. There is information on the forum
So we need to validate the proxies. But if you have a 1000 proxies and 50% don't work, that is 500 proxies timing out at 30 seconds, that is.... errrr a long time. Yes we can multi thread this, but still it is a long wait. And even then, a proxy that validated now, may not work in 10 minutes, so is still no guarantee. But a validated list is better than none.
Another way, and my personal favourite is to to use the proxies to give some play boosts. The proxy plays trick I Call it. When you use a proxy to increase a track plays, if it succeeds it is logged to your LOGS folder with the name
where XXXX is a timestamp i.e. 20130918_
So if you scrape 1000 proxies, then setup an action to increase any track by 500 plays, once the action has complete you can go to your logs folder via:
HELP > LOGS > VIEW FOLDER
then look for the XXXXX_proxy-success.txt and that file will list all working proxies used for the plays action.
You can see this in the video tutorial:
Now we have a list of working proxies (or proxies that worked remember) and some plays to boot, two birds, one stone and all.
But these proxies are still in use by all other soundcloud manager users. If you really want to go pro in your bot army creation, the next step up is private / shared proxies. But these cost. Probably around the $1 per proxy mark, but as in life, you get what you pay for. Fast, effective and solid.
So now we have our proxies in order to bulk create soundcloud accounts for our promotional soundcloud strategies, we can create accounts. Soundcloud allows you to create unverified accounts , this is, accounts where you do not click the verification link that is emailed to. These accounts still work, the only exception is, they cannot message (and perhaps not comment, brain is shutting down for the weekend). There is debate whether they are more likely to get banned, the jury is out. verdict undecided.
The next option is to buy POP enabled email addresses. But what is POP enabled you ask, well there is this thing called google, it can tell you. https://www.google.com.ec/search?q=what+is+pop+emails.
Basically, a pop enabled email lets Soundcloud Manager access, read and click email links, verifying your accounts for you.
And really that is all you need to do to create your accounts for your soundcloud promotion. There are further settings as you would come to expect from the fully customisable soundcloud bot, such as custom usernames, random male or female names, a bio description and a few other tit-bits.
Now go forth and use your accounts wisely, don't over do things, slow and steady build up real followers to these soundcloud accounts, then regularly repost your tracks, add your tracks to plays lists, causing your tracks to be syndicated to all the followers of the bot actions.
