Best URL Shorteners for SMS Marketing

13th September 2012 - Posted by in category Text Message Marketing Advice

Placing a hyperlink within a text message is an easy way to engage and send information to your customers. A hyperlink can direct customers to a mobile website, a survey, an app download, a mobile video, etc. The problem is that most hyperlinks are pretty lengthy and can eat up characters in a text, this is why we suggest using a “URL shortener”, which is a tool that makes long hyperlinks short.
