You’ve come to step 5 in your Linkfire onboarding journey. At this point, you know all about how to build (step 1 and 4) and promote (step 3) your Linkfire links. It’s time to start measuring your success and dive into the good stuff that makes smart links so valuable: insights and reports!
Whenever you share a Linkfire link you’ll start collecting data. If you’ve started sharing your links all across your socials and other channels where you reach your fans, fans have started clicking on your links and visiting your landing pages and data have started to populate in your Linkfire insights.
Check out link insights for a specific link, and for Business plan users, get a full overview of performance across your board with Reports.
This article goes into dept with each metric you find in your link insights and reports such as what are ‘visits’ and ‘click-throughs’ and ‘sources’ and ‘devices’. We’ll keep it sweet and short below.
What kind of questions can Linkfire Insights help me answer?
Data is only useful if you’re able to turn it into action. Linkfire brings together data points that would otherwise be disconnected—or flat-out inaccessible—to give you context around the entire fan journey, from the first click to the final conversion.
Use your Linkfire Insights to answer questions like:
- Do Instagram posts, Facebook posts, or emails perform best?
- Which of my marketing channels drove the most streams on release day?
- Which music services and devices do my fans prefer?
- Do I have enough fans in European countries to schedule tour dates there?
- Where are my merch sales coming from?
- Are my affiliate links meaningfully contributing to my revenue goals?
Get exclusive streaming data you won’t find anywhere else
Linkfire is the only smart link platform with exclusive streaming data partnerships that help you understand what fans do after they click through your links. You have access to data from top streaming services like Apple Music, YouTube, Deezer, Pandora, and more, right from your Linkfire Insights page.
Transparent insights like these are essential for optimizing music promotions, reaching more fans, and measuring your overall success—saving you time and money in the process.
The more Linkfire links you create, the better you’ll know your audience and be able to make smart marketing decisions for your music!
