Release type smart links are built primarily to help you promote your latest release, be that a single, album or otherwise. Create a single page with links to your music or other content across a wide range of platforms. Your fans can then decide where to tune in.
Creating a Release smart link page
Click 'Create link' from the navigation bar shown below. On desktop devices this is at the top of the screen, on mobile devices it can be found at the bottom.
If you have multiple artists, select the one you'd like to use. If you just have one artist you will automatically skip this step.
Next you will need to provide the system with a link to your release. For best results, we recommend pasting a link from Spotify or Apple Music
The system will automatically look for your release across all chosen services. You can add more by hitting the buttons at the bottom in the 'Add service' section, or you can paste a link directly to any other service, as long as it's listed here. If you would like to add a service that's not listed, then you can set up a custom service.
At this stage of the process, you can click 'view link' to check that the system has found the correct link. You can override any links by pasting a new link in the relevant box and hitting 'update'
If you're happy with all the links and services listed here you can hit 'Next' to continue. You can change the order the services appear in on the next screen.
Amplify.link has powerful customisation options allowing you to change the look and feel of your smart link pages. You will now see a preview, and a control panel on the right of the screen (if you're on desktop). If you're on a mobile device you will see a customise panel, and tabs at the top to switch between Customise and Preview.
