Here's how you can find any store value that's not on this list:

  1. Go to your Smart Links in Feature.fm
  2. Click "Get Link"
  3. Hover over "Direct Link" and click the "+" sign
  4. Click on the service you need to get the Direct to Store link
  5. Use the value at the end of the URL (ffm.to/[shortcode]/[servicename]

[tags]

This parameter will include custom tags you set such as the genres of music related to your link, moods or activities. It is an extremely useful parameter to create audiences based on their preferred music tastes, broken down by genre or activities and moods like "workout" or "happy".

The list of genres comes from the streaming service of your Scan Link or next best available option if that source is blank. You can also customize the "tags" field when creating your link.

For example, if you scan a Spotify URL, the genres list will include the genres that Spotify provides us from your scanned link. If Spotify returns a blank genres list, we will use another service, such as Apple.

For any link, you can view the list of genres that will be sent to your retargeting programs by going to your advanced settings of your link.

If you'd like to set default genres on the artist level so a certain artist will always return the same genre values, you can do that in your artist settings. 

[linkType]

This parameter indicates if your link is a Pre-Release page or a Released page. For example, It can be useful to use this parameter to create audiences who visited a Pre-Save page.

The possible values for the [linkType] parameter are:

  • pre_release
  • post_release

[artist]

This parameter is the internal "Artist Folder" name that your link is created under. For example, if your account has 2 Artist Folders called "Artist A" and "Artist B" and your link is created under "Artist B" then this value would be "Artist B".

This is not to be confused with another parameter called [artists].

[artists]

This parameter with the "s" at the end is different than the [artist ] parameter. This parameter is the list of artists that are actually performing on the song. This value typically is pulled from the service of your scan source such as Spotify.

For example, if you create a Smart Link where the artists on the song are BTS feat. Halsey, then this parameter will have 2 values: "BTS" and "Halsey".
