Yes, we currently provide pre-save functionality for both the Spotify and Deezer platforms. If and when web-based APIs become available for other streaming platforms such as Apple Music and Pandora, we expect to support pre-save functionality on those platforms, as well.
We can typically setup a campaign in less than a day. More complicated campaigns that involve sweepstakes or contesting components, touring and event elements, or additional custom activations will generally take longer.
In-house label tools generally lack the flexibility, customization and scalability that our platform provides. Most of these tools take a one-size fits them all approach. Basic website and Wordpress integration approaches are simplistic and do not provide you with branding tools and custom features necessary to launch successful marketing campaigns. Under-priced DIY services will not provide you with expert advice and the assurance most labels, marketers and artists need. Metablocks provides a full-service solution that let you control your branding, customize your approach and have complete control and ownership of your fan experience and data. Additionally, we support a broad range of pre-save options aimed at helping our clients better meet their individual needs!
