Jason on Design How to get hired. This is how I narrow down applicants.:

“… NOT ONE could tell me a story about something they did in Social Media which could demonstrate that it generated money for the business or organization they did it for.”

From an email from SoundCloud

Hey,

Jordin Sparks started following you.

This means that Jordin Sparks will get updates about your public tracks and comments.
If you want to get updates on Jordin Sparks’s tracks and comments you can start following Jordin Sparks too.

Your host,

The SoundCloud WeatherMan

 

Well, I’ve heard of Jordin Sparks but I was not familiar with her music. Two songs are currently featured on the her SoundCloud page. Listened to both, subscribed and favorited both songs.

Looks like she recently joined and is using a follow first strategy to get noticed. A notification invitation ended up in my email and after listening to here songs I became a Follower on SoundCloud. It worked because the content shared was good and this is still the early days of SoundCloud.  If every Tom, Dick and Harry does this it will get annoying to have so many email notifications. At that point, those users will be marked as spam or the notifications feature in SoundCloud settings will be changed so I am not notified about requests or new followers.

N&EC:

Currently she has 71 Followers. *Actually 85 as I write this post. Just refreshed her Soundcloud page. How long will it take until she has 2,000?
