Release links are one of the five campaign types that you can create with Linkfire. Click here to read about the different types of links
To create a release link, you must use a valid music URL. This is typically a link to a track or an album on a music service like iTunes or Spotify. Click the green “Create link” button in the upper right-hand corner of your dashboard, choose “Release” as your link type, and click “Continue”. Then paste in your copied URL and you will be directed to the page looking like the screenshot below.
Here you can customize the title, tag your campaign, edit the short code and change the image.
Once you have customized your link, click the green “Create link” button and our scanner will try to find music matches on other services. Afterward, you will be redirected to your dashboard where you can get the link for sharing.
When the link is ready, it will be marked with a blue text saying “Ready for Review”. Click this to access the “SETUP” and “CUSTOMIZE” sections which are where you can manage the details of your link further.
The most important section is "Service destinations" under "SETUP", where you can see all music matches that we have found for your release. If some matches have less than 95% accuracy, they will appear under “Review” with a yellow exclamation point. We recommend spending a minute to look through these destinations and edit or remove any that don’t point to the correct release URL.
In the "Customize" section you can change the order of the music services on your landing page, de-activate services and get a preview of how your social cards will look when you share your link on Facebook and Twitter and change the copy.
