A link shortener or URL shortener can help you fit in a URL without eating up your characters count. This is especially handy when the URL you need to include is long or hard to read. Plus, when you send an SMS text message, you only have 160 characters to work with. EZ Texting’s link shortener also enables tracking, so you can see how your link performs.
How Does the EZ Texting Link Shortener Work?
When you’re typing a message in EZ Texting’s message platform, copy and paste in the URL you want to include. When you do this, the EZ Texting system will ask you if you’d like to shorten the link. If you say yes, the EZ Texting system will automatically generate a short link the original one within the message. Why Using EZ Texting’s URL Shortener is a Good Idea In addition to the benefits of a smaller link, using the EZ Texting URL shortener allows you to track interaction with your link.
- Know who specifically clicked your link, not just the total number of clicks
- See who your most engaged contacts are
- Use the link shortener for no additional charge
- The link we generate is extra short
Using Shortened Links Outside of Text Messaging
