1 – Stereoload

[/cs_text][cs_text]Stereoload helps you increase your Twitter and Soundcloud follower base by requiring your fans to follow you before they can download your music. It’s clean and unobtrusive UI makes it the perfect way to market your tracks and gain followers. While it may lack some of the more advanced features that can be found in mainstream gating services. It more then makes up for it in its free track file hosting and advanced analytics. If you are looking to keep it simple and allow your fans to download your tracks with minimal intrusions then this is the gate for you! Whats great about stereoload is that all the plays that you recieve via their website will show up on your Soundcloud! Stereoload also has a feed with real-time activity on your account, you can see where your fans are, what they have downloaded and when. Unfortunately you can’t require fans to like, comment or repost your tracks like you can in other gating services.

2 – The Husk Monetization

[/cs_text][cs_text]While the husk may not be the most versatile fan gate it is the first of its kind. Create a gate and within seconds you can start collecting 10 cents for every follower you gain. No ads, no membership fees, no commitments. Simply put the husk pays you to grow your fan base. It is a true innovation in the download gate industry, a truly simple gate with a great user interface.

If you only use Soundcloud and are looking to make some extra cash then The Husk is for you. It’s quick and simple and sure to allow maximum conversions.

5 – Toneden

[/cs_text][cs_text]ToneDen has really changed over the years and unfortunately at a high price. It was the first platform to introduce simpe follow-to-download tactics which is the reason it is on this list. This service has evolved into an all-around beast, you can now collect detailed analytics about your fans and even send beautiful emails through the service. ToneDen also offers a simple way to host competions and giveaways! Now you can have your fans follow you for a chance to win… well anything! They also offer a signature “lasso” tool which can be used to connect your website to your toneden account using simple html! Using the lasso tool, you can have fans join your toneden mailing list from your website. The major downside of toneden is the cost. Unfortunately the emailing services and unlimited campaigns can run you about 50$ a month which is an insane amount for most artists.[/cs_text][x_button size=”global” block=”true” circle=”false” icon_only=”false” href=”https://www.toneden.io/” title=”” target=”blank” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””]https://www.toneden.io/[/x_button][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section bg_color=”hsla(0, 0%, 100%, 0.02)” parallax=”false” style=”margin: 0px;padding: 45px 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_custom_headline level=”h2″ accent=”false” class=”cs-ta-right”]Top 5 SoundCloud Fangates[/x_custom_headline][cs_alert heading=”Bantana is not affiliated in anyway to the websites listed above.” type=”warning” close=”false”][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section parallax=”false” style=”margin: 0px;padding: 45px 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_recent_posts count=”4″ offset=”” category=”” orientation=”horizontal” no_sticky=”true” no_image=”false” fade=”true”][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][/cs_content]
