Email from Kerry Trainor, CEO of SoundCloud, sent to SoundCloud Creators.
Dear SoundCloud Creators,
Our team is humbled every day by the creativity and trust you share with SoundCloud, and we hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.
We are all facing an unprecedented situation. For those of you earning your living through music, and facing canceled shows or other lost income, the impact of COVID-19 is especially hard-hitting.
To support our global creator community, SoundCloud is immediately launching a series of new initiatives:
- A constantly updated resource guide to help you keep creating and building your career
Our Keep the Music Going Guide is now live. It will be your source for daily updates on the best resources to support your career and maintain your well-being from across the web.
- SoundCloud + Twitch livestreaming partnership
We’ve partnered with Twitch to fast-track SoundCloud Pro, SoundCloud Premier and Repost by SoundCloud creators directly to Twitch Affiliate status so you can start earning money from your Twitch streams, instantly. Now, wherever you’re social distancing, you can connect instantly via livestream to millions of fans and get paid for your work.
- 50% off SoundCloud Pro Unlimited subscriptions
Today through Monday, March 30th we are offering our biggest-ever discount on our premium creator subscription plan, Pro Unlimited. SoundCloud Pro Unlimited helps you take your career to the next level no matter where you create and we want to make it as accessible as possible.
- Live creator office hours with SoundCloud’s artist relations and marketing teams
Beginning next week, the SoundCloud team will go live to host real-time discussions, AMAs and workshops to keep you moving forward no matter where you are in your career. Details will be announced here and via our social channels (@SoundCloud).
We will continue to look for additional ways to support the global SoundCloud community in the weeks ahead. This will include financial and promotional support to organizations that provide creator services beyond what we can deliver on SoundCloud.
As always, we welcome your feedback and ideas. Please stay safe and healthy.
