How to Create an MP3 Recording Download Link for Your Site or Email

My friend Morgine Jurdan taught a class on “How to Live as Love”.  It was recorded in one of the teleseminar recording programs and she got the download link.  Her question to me was how she could put the MP3 link on her own site, as well as provide it as a download link from there for her visitors.

Although this question goes beyond what would seem to be the scope of newbies for this Technology for Seniors Made Easy site, I do know there are some of you who make MP3 recordings. I’m guessing you would be like to share one or more on a Website and/or through email, if only you knew how.

You will now have a URL that is your domain name/extension.mp3.  In my example above the link I created for my own testing purposes was I made the extension name much longer than necessary.

Morgine, after following the above instructions, named the file download “geniusloving.mp3”  The resultant URL once uploaded to her site became

If you have, or were to create, a free Amazon s3 free storage account, and follow the same downloading/saving process as described above, your link be similar to the one below.  An FTP, file transfer program is not required.

The “techforseniors” is the “bucket” name I created, followed by my named extension for this recording:
