  8. DJs Can Now Make Money Through SoundCloud

    SoundCloud has recently announced that DJs and producers who upload mixes and remixes to the online streaming service will now be able to monetize them for the first time. SoundCloud is expanding its invite-only revenue-sharing program to include artists who create "recorded and live sets, remixes, and other user-generated content."

    The SoundCloud premier program was first launched in 2014 as a way for users to earn money off the work they upload to the platform. Users who uploaded content to the platform are able to share in the income made through advertising and its two subscription services.
