Soundcould vs Bandcamp - How to drive traffic on social media

For many home recorders, songwriters and just starting producers it is important to just get TRACTION. I have just signed up with both of them (Bandcamp/Soundcloud) Word in the street was always use Soundcloud for social buzz and Bandcamp for professional delivery of sales. Well its been almost 12 hours since a test launch into these markets. (Aside from anomalies) I had 600 plays on aneclectic song on Soundcloud and 0 plays on Bandcamp. So far the word is holding up. I was surprised of the reach of Soundcloud. [and ya I heard about the bots] but I received strong play in a few pockets (Kathmandu Nepal - Wilmington Delaware and Albania. I know most are not AI because of the interaction I have had through various channels. I am getting set up to drive a more popular type tune soon. What unknown tricks do you use to drive traffic and social media? What proven must do s should everyone do? Any and all input would be nice. thanks in advance...
