"If you take a look at my Spotify profile on the desktop app or web player, you’ll see I’m selling stuff! Right there on Spotify! For free! Spotify doesn’t take a cut. Even better, I’m selling from my own site! You can add up to three promotions, directing each to the URL of your choice. For now, they only appear on the desktop app and web player - not the mobile apps. As awesome as this all sounds (to me at least), my ArtistLink promotions boast a whopping 2 clicks. One obvious reason: why would any Spotify user want to buy my albums when they can listen to them on Spotify for free?"
