smartURL

smartURL redirects users to specific destinations based on their country or device. After entering a default URL, users are able to specify to which country and device-specific URLs they want to direct their traffic. smartURL is the most popular type and the one that we recommend using for most campaigns.

Flex
For situations when users need deeper control, Flex smartURLs can be configured with device-specific redirects at the country level. For example, if a user wanted to send Android traffic to Amazon in the US and to Google Play in Canada, Flex smartURL could be configured to handle these conditions.
Pivot

The Pivot smartURL creates a landing page where all users can choose their preferred retailer. This landing page can be customized with links to any retail or streaming providers. Pivot smartURLs automatically hide any retailers that are unavailable in a specific country or device.The customizable landing page features a product image, Spotify audio player, custom branding, and retailers specific to company and country.

Event

The Events smartURL is designed for promoting live events. For users managing a touring campaign, Events smartURLs can be configured to redirect traffic to the right ticketing page based on their location. When there are no available shows nearby, traffic will be sent to a landing page listing all available locations on the tour. Add and update event listings as tour plans change.

Google Dynamic Retargeting (Enterprise Only)
Google dynamic retargeting allows users to make custom retargeting lists and buckets. For instance, there will be an artist list, so every smartURL for a given artist will go into the bucket. Additional lists can be created for album, song, genre and release phase. When an iTunes link is put in as the default link, all fields will be automatically entered, without any extra work to set it up from the creator.
