SoundCloud announces partnerships with Squarespace, Adobe, Discord, and Rap Plug to boost member benefits for artists using SoundCloud Next and Next Pro.
SoundCloud has announced partnerships with Squarespace, Adobe, Discord, and Rap Plug to bring new benefits to artists on the platform. These partnerships mark a significant expansion of SoundCloud’s “SoundCloud for Artists” Member Benefits program, which includes offers and discounts from music industry brands and services.
SoundCloud Next and Next Pro artists will be able to access benefits like unique music-themed domains from Squarespace, three months free of Discord Nitro, more than 30 free courses from industry professionals on Rap Plug, and benefits from Adobe that include 20% off Adobe Premiere Pro and trials of Adobe Express Premium.
“Being an artist today often requires more than making great music. Between managing your online presence, creating assets for social media, and building out a community, there’s a lot artists have to handle,” said Tracy Chan, SVP of Creator at SoundCloud. “We’re aware of that, and we want to make things easier by offering benefits that help you across all areas of your career. It’s great to be partnering with other creator-first companies like Squarespace, Adobe, Discord, and Rap Plug to provide a benefits package you can’t find anywhere else.”
“We are thrilled to partner with SoundCloud to support its thriving community of artists, musicians, and creators, said Kinjil Mathur, Chief Marketing Officer at Squarespace. “This collaboration aligns with our core values in giving artists a way to stand out and succeed by establishing their digital presence, building a beautiful website, and connecting with audiences across multiple touchpoints.”
Since launching SoundCloud for Artists in 2022, SoundCloud has introduced a range of updates in a strategic effort to enhance its creator offerings, including the Fans tool for artists, direct messages on mobile, an overhauled Comments tool, a global licensing deal with Merlin, and additional member benefits partners like Feature.FM.
Further details on specific membership benefits available for SoundCloud Next and Next Pro artists are outlined on SoundCloud’s artist portal.
