How are my external song links used for 8tracks Campaigns?

You can include external song URLs, such as YouTube or SoundCloud. Make sure you include the URL for the specific song and not to your channel or page.

SoundCloud: When you provide the SoundCloud URL for your song, we'll stream your song directly from SoundCloud. This will increase your play count on SoundCloud with every sponsored and organic play. Additionally, favorites from 8tracks will also count in your favorites on SoundCloud for listeners who are logged into SoundCloud.

Make sure your SoundCloud track URL and mp3 file are the same.

YouTube: When you provide the YouTube link for your song, your YouTube video will be included on your song page and any time your song is shared on social media. Your YouTube play count will only increase when someone actually clicks the play button on a video share. It won't increase with every song play.

Make sure your YouTube video is for the right song.

Buy song URL: You can add a URL to link directly to a page where the listener can buy your music. This link will be included while your song is being played!

We strongly recommended adding all of them if you have them!

More integration capabilities coming soon...
