Can I have a smart link?
Smart links are those which display store links to your release in an organized list so your fans can easily locate your music on the platform of their choice.
Smart links can be a valuable way to easily share and promote your release across emails and social media. Additionally though, generating smart links allows you access to analytical data relating to your link that can provide useful insights into your audience. Many smart link creation services allow you to view things like Top Digital Services, Top Territories, and click through to stream rates.
If you'd like to create a smart link for your release, we'd recommend using one of the services below:
Linkfire creates a splash page for your release that includes links to the top digital music services. Sign up information is here.
Feature.fm offers many services, including smart links and Spotify Pre-Saves. They also offer great analytics. You can learn more about their services here.
ToneDen is a social marketing platform that offers both free and paid services. Part of their free services include Fanlinks which will allow you to generate not only a smart link for your release, but also a pre-save. You can access ToneDen here.
These smart links are Apple-focused. You can sign up for free here.
Bit.ly is a great link-shortening tool that offers basic analytics on the click-through rate. This service does not aggregate links across all services, but can be helpful if you want to point to just one platform. Sign up for free here.
Note: Most smart link creation platforms require a UPC and/or a link to your release to generate the link. Your UPC can be pulled from the Catalogue tab on your Portal. If you require a URL to your release prior to release day, please get in touch with us via the Contact Us page on your Portal.
