Pre-save Campaigns: Questions and Answers

This post has moved to: http://blog.presavetospotify.com/2017/06/pre-save-campaigns-questions-and-answers/

Why are these pre-save campaigns proving popular?

Pre-saves have become the streaming equivalent of “Pre-orders”.  You’ll be hard pressed to find an artist or a label who doesn’t understand the value of doing a “Pre-order”. Well the same principal applies to Pre-saves! Fundamentally pre-saves make obvious marketing sense – it is better to start “collecting” your Spotify “streams and adds” sooner than later! That’s essentially what a pre-save allows you to do – it allows you to start the marketing process for generating and encouraging streams well in advance of your single, EP or album’s release.

Widget Tags

Each widget on the platform has a tag or short url associated with it.  These tags have to be unique and conform to a set of standard in order for them to work on the platform.  When selecting a tag or short url for your widget or retail landing page please make sure it meets these requirements:

  • Your tag cannot be longer than 20 characters
  • Your tag cannot contain certain reserved words, these include other brand names (“metablocks”,”smarturl”,”linkfire”,”ibm”,”microsoft”, i.e.) and folder or file names that may be used by our widget platform (“manage”,”images”,”js”,”css”)
  • Your tag cannot match another existing tag. If you feel someone is using a tag name inappropriately please contact us at help@null2lin.cc
