Tired of having to post loads of links to your releases across social media, so that fans who use different streaming services can access it?

A Smart Link makes sharing your music with your fans easier.

Why is getting a Smart Link for my release useful?

Rather than having to share multiple URLs for every store / streaming service your music is available on, our Smart Link collates them all and displays them on a simple landing page, meaning you only have to share one URL, and fans will be able to access your music via their preferred service from the landing page.

There’s more advanced options you can ask us to set-up for you, for added marketing power. For example;

– We can add a link to your Official Website, store or mailing list
– We can set up a custom subdomain for the link (for example: onenine.ffm.to/difficultdays
– We can provide you with in-depth analytics, so you can learn a bit more about how fans are accessing your music

Furthermore, if your music isn’t out yet – and is in the pre-release stage, our Smart Links also double-up as pre-save links, meaning if a fan visits the link before your release date, they’ll be given the option to pre-save your release on their streaming service of choice. When your release date hits, the link will become a regular Smart Link, directing any fan who visits it straight to your release on their preferred service.

How much does it cost?

Our team can set this up for you for £10 for a basic, no-frills smart-link, which will allow fans to pre-save your release, and direct them towards your release when it comes out, or we can create an advanced link for £20 per release (this unlocks all the ‘advanced options’ mentioned above). This isn’t a recurring payment; it is a one time set-up cost.

How do I order a Smart Link?

It’s easy! For any existing releases which have been processed by our team, simply go to the ‘Releases’ tab on dashboard.emubands.com, click ‘View’ underneath the release, then ‘Extras’ – you’ll see the ‘Smart Link / Pre-Save’ options – click on the type you’d like – Basic or Pro, and then click ‘Save’ to finish adding it to your release.

For any new releases, you can add it to your release before you get to the Checkout page – it appears on the ‘Optional Extras’ page, just be sure to add it to your new release at that point.

Our team will get to work on setting up your Smart Link, and will get in touch with you to make sure it is set up just how you’d like.

Can I get Smart Links for all of my releases?

Yes, absolutely! If you’re planning on ordering Smart Links for 5 or more releases, why not place a Bulk Discount order first and save 20%? Here’s more information on Bulk Discounts and how they work: Bulk Discounts
