✔ Use the Local Release Pre-Save

Most music is released at 12am midnight on release day, but within each individual time zone. Let’s say your music is being released in London at 12AM local time, but it won't be out yet in New York.

Only with, you can ensure that at midnight in London, your music is saved to fan libraries and fans who visit your link will see "play" to stream your music while fans in New York will still be able to Pre-Save.

✔ Activate the "Spotify Multiple Follow"

Figuring out how to get Artist and Playlist followers in Spotify is critical for your Spotify growth and getting more Spotify listeners. With, when a fan Pre-Saves your music in Spotify, you automatically enable fans to follow your Artist Profile and up to 2 other Spotify assets you want followed such as playlists.

Just make sure you add your Spotify Artist Profile and at least 1 playlist to the "Multiple Follow."

The follow happens the moment the fan finishes Pre-Saving so you don't have to wait until release day to get your followers.

✔ Include Post Pre-Save destinations

After a fan Pre-Saves your music, where do you want them to go? Your music isn't out yet, but with a "Post Pre-Save destination URL" you can automatically redirect fans anywhere you want after they Pre-Save and you can enter this URL for each Pre-Save service. Maybe you want fans to go to your existing music in Spotify or Apple Music. Or maybe you want to send fans to your latest music video on YouTube, to your website, to buy merch, tickets...the choice is yours.

✔ Add the email collection widget

When you add the “Email Subscribe” store, fans can directly subscribe to your email list by entering their email address manually. The "Email Subscribe" store can be added to your Pre-Save page just like any other store:

✔ Confirm your ad retargeting pixels are added

Don't make the mistake of sharing your Pre-Save without making sure you are collecting all of your retargeting and conversion tracking data to your social ad platforms. Collecting this data is key for both remarketing audiences as well as to run conversion ad campaigns across all of your social channels.

Send your retargeting data to Facebook Ads, TikTok Ads, Google Ads, Snapchat Ads or anywhere else you'd like via Google Tag Manager.

Your retargeting pixels live in your "Advanced Settings" of link creation. You can also add them to your default account settings, but if you've already created links, you'll still need to go back and add them to links you've already created.
