Building up your fan base plays a huge role in a musicians marketing strategy. Your fans are the ones that are there for you at your shows, following you online, and digging your music. So why not give them a little something back? Download codes is a great feature available on the Pro plan that allows you to do just that! It is set up so that you can give a fan a unique download code for a free album or track.
Watch this video tutorial to see how easy it is to generate download codes for your music:
If you print the promo codes onto cards or stickers, you can sell those or give them out at your show. If you are selling t-shirts, why not add a free digital download as an added bonus? When your fan goes to your download url (http://yourwebsite.com/dl), they will enter the code and receive their music. The code will remain active for 48 hours after the first time it is entered.
You can track how many of your codes have been redeemed by clicking on any Album feature, then choosing the Transaction History tab.
Another way to use these codes: you can also send out tracks to your mailing list using this feature! Just click on the Mailing list tab, compose your message, and choose the track you would like to attach.
