  2. 2. 2AT INTERNET / CASE STUDY / SOUNDCLOUD INTRODUCTION SoundCloud is the world’s leading audio platform. Millions of Internet users worldwide have access to the SoundCloud platform, where they can listen to, upload and share audio content on social networks. For 2 years now the Berlin-based company has been experiencing considerable growth with more than 300 million users worldwide. With a strong increase in traffic volume, SoundCloud very quickly became confronted with the limits of using free tools for measuring web traffic. AT Internet was chosen to respond to SoundCloud’s increasingly advanced needs and to accompany SoundClound in analysing its digital performance. Ole Bahlmann, Product Manager at SoundCloud, explains that they chose AT Internet mainly for the power of the solution with its intuitive segmentation and advanced Rich Media analyses, but also for the company’s expertise, human approach and qualities, as well as the ability of the AT Internet teams to get together to work on their project. CHALLENGES To detect the platform’s potential to steer SoundCloud’s digital strategy. SoundCloud’s“Insight”team is dedicated exclusively to analysing online performance. The aims of the Insight team are to collect data, format it in reports and then distribute it to every employee in the company. Darius Kilstein, Insight Manager, explains that his biggest challenge is to steer the business in the right direction by detecting the real potential of each functionality, each page, each zone or each piece of content on the platform. By using the AT Internet API to cross web data with other variables from the information systems, the SoundCloud teams have already carried out several development, optimisation and test projects which have had a considerable impact on their long-term marketing strategy.
