A big use case for Laylo has been using a Drop to let fans get notified when a song is out. Traditionally, this has been somewhat accomplished through autosaves via feature.fm, Linkfire, Hypeddit, and a few other platforms.
Here's an article that outlines how autosaves have been used in the past and what they will mean in the future: https://oddlysimpl.xyz/pre-saves-next-year/
Industry wide, people have been using ‘autosave’ links - and we’d like to clear up exactly what an ‘autosave’ actually does.
There is no such thing as a ‘presave’ on Spotify’s backend. Spotify has no clue how many ‘autosaves’ you have. When you execute a autosave campaign on Ffm, Linkfire, Hypedit, etc. all that’s happening is that the company will store the fan’s Spotify token, and then save the track to their library when the song is actually out. That’s why you don’t need to add an ISRC for a autosave to work until the song is actually out.
It’s the same with Laylo. When a fan logins into Spotify on Laylo, we store the fan’s Spotify token/account, and then when the song is actually out, we loop through every fan and add the track to their libraries.
After much research and customer interviews, we built autosave functionality directly into the platform. The feature is available publicly. Manage Drop ⇒ Advanced Tab ⇒ Autofollow
