FanBridge recently released a new integration with audio streaming service, SoundCloud, and we couldn’t be more excited that this feature in particular is available to all FanBridge clients. For years, the relationship between email and SoundCloud content has been wrought with workarounds, hacks, and mistakes. But now, we’ve finally built a better way! Here are 5 reasons why we’re so excited for this tool:
1. The track/playlist in your email is tailor made for email.
SoundCloud players are easily found and shared on websites and blogs through the embed option. Unfortunately, that same code is not email friendly at all. The solution FanBridge created takes out all the buttons and comments that can not be used in email while still keeping the familiar sound wave look your subscribers have come to recognize.
2. FanBridge pulls in your synced tracks and playlists.
If you’ve connected your SoundCloud account to FanBridge, you know that you get high level stats every week on your SoundCloud account’s growth. But now, that connection gets you even more. We save your account’s history of published tracks and playlists so you can add SoundCloud content to your email in just three clicks. Seriously. Just three:
3. You can easily highlight tracks and playlists from other SoundCloud accounts.
Want to share someone else’s remix of one of your song? Or maybe you were a guest on a podcast? Simply copy and paste the URL of that track/playlist to include in your email. It doesn’t have to be published on your own account to be in your newsletter.
4. FanBridge automatically creates a size appropriate version of any SoundCloud content.
Whether its the top featured item in your campaign or just off to the side, we made sure that no matter where your SoundCloud content is in your email, it looks clean and professional. That’s why both single tracks as well as playlists adjust the look to best fit the space it is in.
5. SoundCloud content is great for your readers.
There are so many things one can find on SoundCloud: all types of music, podcasts and radio shows, remixes and exclusives. And just like with video content in email, a click shows consumption. When you check your email analytics, you’ll know that those click throughs will translate to streams.
This type of integration can only be found on FanBridge’s Template Tool. Start crafting your newsletter that looks – and sounds – just right.
