Creating Your First Listen Page

In order for ListenPages to work its magic, you will first need to create a Listen Page and put it out into the world.

In this help article, I will be showing you exactly how simple that process is.

First, click the 'New' button.

From your Path (dashboard page), click the ‘New’ button in the top right hand corner. This button will always create a new Listen Page.

Next, name it.

Your next step is to name your Listen Page. 

Be aware, the title you give your page will be shown on the Listen Page itself, so make sure to call it something that looks professional and is descriptive of the content you are showcasing. 

For example, if you have a new music video for a song called ‘Billie Jean’, you would title your Listen Page ‘Billie Jean’ or ‘Billie Jean Music Video’, not ‘new clip #3’ or ‘vid #23832’.

Then, choose page type.

Next you will choose the type of content you will be showcasing to your audience. 

Select the ‘audio’ option if you are showcasing an audio file, like an mp3.

Select the ‘video’ option if you are showcasing a video file, like a music video or vlog.

Select the ‘text’ option if you are showcasing written content, like an announcement.

Select the ‘offer’ option if you are wanting your listeners to purchase something on an external site.

For this example, we will be creating a video Listen Page.

Next, choose the page colour.

Choose the colour you think suits your aesthetic best.

When in doubt, use black — it works best for a distraction-free environment.

Then, hit the ‘next’ button.

Now it's time for content.

For this example, we will be creating a video Listen Page. For information on how to create other Listen Pages, please refer to their specific guides in our knowledge base.

Copy the link for the video you’d like to showcase from where it is uploaded and paste it in this box. Although we support a selection of video hosting sites, we find that YouTube generally works best.

Then it's time to generate!

Once your link is pasted, hit the ‘Generate’ button.

ListenPages will automatically create a special piece of code for your video (known as an ’embed’ code) and show a preview below.

If you’re seeing your video, it means you pasted the right link — great job!

Then, hit the ‘next’ button.

Now get sharing!

That’s it! You’ve created your first Listen Page.

Take the link that ListenPages has given you and share it out to all of your followers. Your goal is to get as many people clicking on that link and engaging with your content as possible.

As soon as they do, the data will display on your Path.
