The Artist Union is a free online application for musical artists to promote SoundCloud tracks and improve fanbase. You can create download gates for your SoundCloud tracks so that others have to follow and favorite them or send a donation for you. Using this platform, you can easily expand your SoundCloud followers and let them download your tracks in exchange for promoting your music. Along with SoundCloud, you can also import your music from Spotify, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube.
It lets you customize your fan actions, which means you can assign different actions like follow, favorite, donate, re-post, etc. to your fans in order to download your tracks.

One of the best new features is that you can create music videos with your tracks and share them via Facebook and YouTube.
