Trackable 'Proton' short URLs
Would be great if when an EP was released on Beatport, SoundSystem knew this and generated it's own trackable short URL (like bit.ly) to EP. We could then use this link in our promo, and also view how many clicks, etc. I know it's doable now (manually, but would be great to see this in SoundSystem in the Performance area along with sales info.
Great idea Che! Now always using Bit.ly
Getting the URL before the release is even better indeed for promo...

Yeah mate, I like the sound of that! :D
Good idea, Che. We're actually waiting for Bit.ly to contact us re: another matter. Their API could probably handle this pretty well, but it would be a significant undertaking to build.
What I like about this is you could be given a URL to promote the release BEFORE it is out.... it could link to the label page at Beatport, for example, or a SoundCloud preview - and then managers could update it in SoundSystem without having to update all their promo materials.
