Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, July 10, 2013 5:43 PM

SoundCloud Sounds Like MAGIC
I'm in my honeymoon period with my new iPad. You know that first week when you load 100 apps most of which you will never open or use. One new app I encourage people and e-commerce merchants to explore is SoundCloud.

SoundCloud is a sound sample of the world. The app's UI is easy to use and its catalog of User Generated Content (contributed sounds) is big and sure to get bigger.

WHY?

https://soundcloud.com/pwhitty/listening-to-the-wind-through

I just tweeted the sound of wind blowing in tall grass. A few birds squawk and sing, time passes. It sounds like grassy dunes next to a beach, but the beach and the waves are far enough wind and birds dominate.

Impossible to listen to pwhitty's magical 10 minute recording and feel anything other than more relaxed than when you started. Sounds are such a powerful artistic medium unused in contemporary e-commerce.

SoundCloud will fix that since its possible to curate sound in the same way we curate images or video. Sample, edit, tag and mix to tell a more complete story, set a mood or help illustrate our words and images.

What is the power of a few sample of pwwhitty's magical ten minutes of wind and birds moving tall grass? Think a 3x or 4x increase in conversion not to mention a whole new dimension to User Generated Content (UGC) for contests and games.

Ask your visitors what SEO sounds like or provide a prize for the best summer vacation sounds and let UGC do it's #SEO and content marketing magic.

Kudos SoundCloud for hearing what only you heard and for creating such an elegant and seductive tool.
