The first step is to log onto SoundClick's website. You will want to register an account with SoundClick. Set up your username and password. You will want to create a name for your artist/band/music production company.

Upload Beats, Instrumentals, and Music
Now you want to begin uploading your music so people can download your mp3s online. Upload as many instrumentals, beats, and songs as you like. SoundClick does not have a limit on how much music you can load onto their servers. You can either allow people to download beats/songs for free or you can just have a streaming links available.
This is the last but most important factor in climbing SoundClick Charts. You want to constantly be promoting your beats, instrumentals, songs, or music. You will want to focus on driving unique listeners and viewers to your page.
A great way to easily do this is to allow people to download your music for free. If you are a producer, you should put in your title that your instrumental is a "Free Download" or "Free D/L". If you are an artist make sure you promote your songs in the same manner. The reason for doing this is to entice more unique viewers to your page.
You also will want to get active in music forums. You will want to begin posting links to music on your SoundClick page for people to review. DO NOT SPAM. This is the worst thing you can do! Look for threads within music forums where you can post links to your material. MAKE SURE YOU SAY IN YOUR POST TITLE "FEEDBACK RETURNED" OR "DROP LINKS". This will encourage people to check out your music because you're offering to check out theirs. It will also provide you with the unique views you need to move up the charts. Make sure you provide GOOD FEEDBACK!
The aforementioned items are just a few methods to begin promotions and advertising. You can pay for advertising and use social networks among other things to drive traffic to your page. The key to climbing the charts is establishing a consistent advertising pattern. The more traffic you are driving to your page the more unique viewers you will get. As you continue to drive traffic to your page you will continue to climb the charts. Don't get discouraged if you don't make it to #1 over night. Climbing the charts is a process. Stay consistent and persistent until you reach your goals.
