With Push.fm, it’s easy and free to set up your first Content Unlock with a few clicks, customise to your heart’s content and watch your statistics grow as your audience flood in.

Create your Push.fm account

Create a new campaign
Content Unlocks - step 1

Basic Details
Content Unlocks - step 4

Fill in the details. A title, description, URL and image can be added here. Keep an eye on the preview to the right.

Select Social Actions

Fill in all of the social actions you want. Here I’ve added various actions on Spotify, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. Actions on Apple Music and Deezer are also available. The more you add, the more options you give your audience. Drag and drop your action to have them appear in a desired order.

Setting your required social actions

The slider allows you to alter how many actions are required to gain access to the download. Keep in mind not everyone has Spotify, Deezer and Apple Music accounts. You can make one or more of the actions a requirement to continue. Here I’ve chosen ‘Subscribe on YouTube’.

Review & Launch
