Mixcloud Select gives creators the tools to create their own inner circle of fans who subscribe to their channel.
For a small monthly fee, fans can subscribe directly to a channel to directly support the creator, plus the music and artists played in their shows. In exchange for their support, subscribers can enjoy additional features on the Select channels they are subscribed to.
Creators on Select can use these features to reward subscribers with an even better listening experience.
Below is an overview of the functional features that each Select subscriber will benefit from after subscribing to a channel:
Creators on Mixcloud Select have the option to set the shows they upload as Select exclusives. When a creator sets a show as exclusive, it is publicly visible to everyone, but can only be listened to by paying subscribers.
Fans can unlock a creator’s exclusive shows by subscribing to their channel on Mixcloud Select.
Creators are in control of how and when to use this feature to reward their fans with exclusive content. Select exclusives are a powerful tool for encouraging more people to subscribe and support. Find out how best to use Select exclusives here.
Fans who subscribe to creators on Mixcloud Select can download that creator’s shows to listen offline on the Mixcloud app (iOs and Android).
This feature is only available for the creator channels they are subscribed to with Mixcloud Select. All downloads can be accessed from the app navigation.
Fans who subscribe to creators on Mixcloud Select can view the full tracklist of a show before hitting play, provided the creator has included it.
If you’re a creator on Select, we strongly suggest you provide the full tracklist (including timestamps) when you upload your shows. This will ensure your paying subscribers get the full Select experience.
All creators on Mixcloud are encouraged to upload a detailed tracklist when they upload shows. This includes track information and timestamps. Read more about how tracklisting works here.
This new feature is currently being tested with a small group of creators.
Creators on Select can keep their fans posted with updates of their choice. They can choose to make these posts public for everyone to see or make them exclusive to their Select subscribers.
