Shortening your URL for Text Marketing

Shortening your URL for Text Marketing

BY PARKER MITCHELL

In the text message marketing game, oftentimes you run out of space for your text message when a link is included.  You are allowed 160 characters for SMS messages and some links can take up more than 160 characters by themselves.  No matter how much you abbreviate you message, it is impossible to include a link in your message without creating a shorter URL.  As long as your original URL is shorter than 400 characters, then it qualifies to be shortened with Texn Rewards.

Here are the steps to shorten your URL for SMS with Texn Rewards:

Step 1: Login to your client.texnrewards.net account

Step 2: Go to Mobile Tools -> URL Shortener

Step 3: Click "Create Short URL", paste your long URL in the "Full Link" space, type a description, and select "Create Short URL"

Step 4: Copy the Short URL you created and paste it into your text blast.

You can also click on the QR code, customize the QR code size (pixel value), and Download your QR Code if you want to market this link on Social Media or In Store. The “Views” column tells you how many times someone has visited this short URL.

Step 5: Delete or Archive your Short URL if it is no longer a relevant link for your marketing campaign.
