How to make a Quick Landing Page for an Album or Track with smartURL

Create a Seamless Landing Page for Your Music with Smart URLs

Hey there, musicians! Stephen here from the DIY Musician Guide with another helpful tip to boost your music marketing. Today, we’re diving into the world of Smart URLs and how they can create a fantastic landing page for your music.

Why Smart URLs?

In today’s digital age, your music should be readily available across various platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, and more. However, directing fans to each platform individually can be cumbersome.

This is where Smart URLs come in! These clever links act as a central hub, bringing all your music links together in one convenient location.

Benefits of Smart URLs:

  • Offer Fans Choice: Let listeners choose their preferred platform to stream or download your music.
  • Clean and Organized: No more bombarding fans with a list of individual links. A Smart URL presents everything neatly on a single landing page.
  • Geo-Targeting: Smart URLs can automatically hide unavailable links in certain regions, ensuring a frustration-free experience for your audience.
  • Track Performance: Gain valuable insights into where and how your music is being accessed through click statistics.

Creating Your Smart URL:

There are several Smart URL creation services available online. In this guide, we’ll follow a generic process that applies to most services:

  1. Sign Up and Choose URL Type: Head over to your chosen Smart URL service and create an account (usually free). Select the “Landing Page” URL type (often called Pivot or similar).
  2. Add Your Music Links: Start by entering your iTunes link. The service might try to automatically grab details like artwork and platform links. If you’re unsure how to get your iTunes link, simply visit the album or track’s release page and copy the link.
  3. Integrate More Platforms: Don’t stop at iTunes! Add links to Spotify, YouTube Music, Bandcamp, and any other platforms where your music is available. Follow the service’s instructions on finding and pasting the appropriate link for each platform.
  4. Customize Your Landing Page (Optional): Some services allow you to add social media links and customize the appearance of your landing page to match your branding.
  5. Save and Promote! Once you’re happy with your landing page, save your Smart URL. This is the link you’ll use to promote your music across social media, websites, and other channels.
