I was hoping you could give me some tips. If you manage to find what the secret is, don't hesitate to share it.

Be active in the community, exposure doesn't just come to you, you have to go get it.

Just click the audio portal button and review all the 30 new submissions (from the moment you clicked)
leave that page and open a track on a new tab , review the track and repeat the process.

You can make a lot of buddies with that method (or even some fans) if you give them a good review , explaining every detail that comes to your mind. People will think that you're such an awesome person that they will check your stuff.

Eventually you will have regular reviewers whenever you upload something new!

Just try to be nice and they will give you very strong feedback and constructive criticism.

Sorry but I find it really silly when people with barely any forum posts and barely any music reviews come and ask how to get feedback. If you want exposure and reviews, you've got to make an effort on your part.

Review other people, and make your reviews a bit detailed and helpful. Actively take part in the Audio Forum and get known a bit more. Give some audio competitions a shot - there are monthly competitions, bi-monthly competitions, annual competitions and other miscellaneous competitions in this forum; you've got loads to choose from. See if you can find someone to collaborate with. Work on improving your music with the feedback you get, and put more effort in your music.

You can make use of these threads:
Audio Advertisements
Work In Progress Advice Thread!
Review Request Club

And when you get a decent fanbase, sometimes (although not all the time or you might be seen as annoying) you can PM each one when you submit a new track which you worked hard on, asking them politely to check it out if they get the time.

Lastly, be patient. You won't start off getting many reviews, but the more active you get with the community and the more you improve, the more reviews you'll receive. Also, may I suggest to improve your grammar? Believe it or not, putting effort in the grammar of your posts/reviews will greatly increase your credibility and give a better impression of yourself, and this helps you get more feedback.

Do all that, and then see if I'm right or not!

This might backfire a lot. Some people don't want constructive criticism, they want praise. If their song sucks and you tell them something like "good start but work on this and work on that, that one part was good" you might be zerobombed for a week. Now that I think about it, I always made the mistake of putting an honest score on that review. Keep it above 8 and this method might just work.

Since we're letting this thinly veiled advertisement thread stay open, I'd just like to say: please go review my music, too.

Review for a review
That's how I do
You should too
It's really true
If you're feeling blue
Because you're new
Just give a review
And they'll give one to you

In that case , just review songs that you think that are good and skip the ones that need some improvements.

Make professional sounding music, and make lots of it - eventually if it's good enough you'll get lots of recognition. Also play to NG's interests eg. dubstep/dance usually get high scores no matter what haha

When on the front page of a genre, your song will get views and hopefully a review :)

You could also write helpful and constructive reviews on other peoples stuff, people always love reviews (just like you would) and they would usually listen to your stuff also (with either seemingly inactive NG users or signed NG users I doubt they would though)

thanks for the tips!
I'll use them in the future.
also my grammar isn't the best but thats probably because English isn't my first language.

Well, to be honest your grammar isn't bad, really. I was mostly referring to punctuation, capitalisation, etc...

It's not such a big deal, but something to keep in mind I suppose.
