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 presaves via feature.fm, Linkfire, Hypeddit, and a few other platforms.
Here's an article that outlines how presaves 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 ‘presave’ links - but I wanted to actually clear up exactly what a presave actually does.
There is no such thing as a ‘presave’ on Spotify’s backend. Spotify has no clue how many ‘presaves’ you have. When you execute a presave 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 presave 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 presave functionality directly into the platform. The feature is available publicly. Manage Drop ⇒ Advanced Tab ⇒ Autofollow
