  • Hey gang,

    I’m wondering if it’s possible to make your own landing pages for sending people to the streaming service of their choice.
    Normally you would use a service like Hypeddit or Toneden for this, but they aren’t cheap and especially nowadays where advertising has become trickier in general, I think it’s a good idea to just do it yourself if it’s possible.

    Is it as simple as copy & pasting html code from the Spotify API to a custom page?

    How do you know the users choice?

    No.
    That’s not how an API works. The API grants you access to the features and functions available by the software. You still need to write your code to access and display from the API.

    I think you need to describe better re: what you are trying to achieve.

    In my opinion it’s definitely not that simple, because it’s impossible to build proper interaction with Spotify API just by using their html widgets. Html is just not suited for that. It would require some backend programming using PHP or other suitable language such as Python or Node.js/Javascript.

    Sorry for the late reply!

    It’s a landing page for promoting a music release.
    The idea is that you don’t want to push spotify ads to non-spotify users and vice-versa.
    So what you do is, you present them a page that has a button that leads to the song on spotify, one for amazon, one for apple music etc etc.

    If possible I’d like to create something like that myself.
    All it needs to do is to forward people to the song on the proper streaming service.

    How do you know if a web visitor has a Spotify account or not?

    I don’t, hence why I’m sending them to a landing page instead of sending them to spotify directly.
    Something like this:
