When and where to find your pre-save links

Pre-save links are great tools to promote your upcoming music with your followers, create some hype and help generate more saves. Find out more about when and where to find your pre-save links in this guide.

What are pre-save links?

A pre-save link redirects to a release specific page that allows people to “pre-save” your upcoming track or album on the service they use (Spotify, Apple, Amazon, Deezer or Tidal). When someone pre-saves your track, it gets added to their music library on release day. And release day stats are important! The more “saves” you get on release day, the more likely your track might end up on one of Spotify’s algorithmic or editorial playlists.

When and where to find them

When you submit a new release to us, we first do some checks to make sure everything is correct so the release will pass the DSP guidelines. Once the release has been sent to all stores, you will automatically receive your pre-save link right in your Make Waves account. So you don't have to request one with us. You can just sit back and relax.

You'll get an email from us when the link is ready:

And you can also find the link in your Make Waves account, when you click on your release and head to the Promotion tab.

You can share the link on your socials when you are ready to announce and promote your upcoming release. Or you can add it to your bio or Linktree. On the day your music becomes available, the link will automatically convert to a released version, which is great as you can continue sharing the same smart link to direct fans to your music.
