Adding/Editing Short Link URLs
You can shorten your links so they don’t take up as many characters in your text messages. You can shorten any of your links and include that in your bulk SMS, autoresponders, polls, contests or wherever you want. You can also track how many clicks were made for a given link to see how effective your message was. Obviously more clicks on a link means more interest in that message. You will have insight on what messages work and what doesn’t, allowing you to tweak your message content for campaigns that garnered a low CTR rate.
