Improved Artist features on Tracks & Fields: Part Two (Pitching and sharing)
Are you getting the most out of your Tracks & Fields account? We’re running a two-part series to help you brush up on the best ways to use our platform and introduce some recently added features you may not have spotted yet. Part one focussed on uploading and organising your tracks. Once your music is on the platform and wearing its Sunday best, it’s time to get pitching.
Pitching within the system
Pitching a song to a request is now easier than ever. There are two routes – either click on Submit/Apply on a request page (for existing songs and also new uploads), or click the new Submit to Request icon at the top right of an individual track or playlist entry. New tracks uploaded to requests are automatically stored as part of your repertoire in the My Music section.
Once your track is on the platform, there’ll be no need to re-upload to future requests – you can now submit a track to a request straight from your My Music page. Duplicate tracks will now be recognised by the system and merged with the original upload.
As part of your dashboard you’ll find a stats section that shows how often your repertoire has been played and shortlisted during the last month (and the months before), and compiles a list of your five most popular tracks.
Pitching outside the system
The Tracks & Fields platform is also a great tool for pitching to external clients. Your music is hosted as stand-alone tracks or in playlists, which cuts out tedious file-transfer delays. Songs can be streamed or downloaded with a click.
In the “Details” section of each playlist you can create individual secret links to tracks or playlists for different recipients. As each secret link comes with individual stats, you can see whether they’ve been listened to and if tracks were downloaded.
Tracks downloaded from the platform come automatically embedded with the track’s information, tags, artist picture and the rights holder’s contact details as part of their ID3 tags.
We hope you enjoy all these handy new features – why not try them out today?
