Frequently asked questions
What is a URL Shortener?
A URL shortener in its simplest form is a tool that transforms your original long URL into a compact shortened link that is easy to insert into your messages and content. When a customer clicks this short URL they are redirected to the original long URL. What makes our short URL that much more powerful is the fact that you have complete control over your campaign by way of precise analytics.
Every customer that receives a short URL and clicks is recorded and this is accessible on your Dashboard for further analysis.

URL shorteners give you the ability to monitor your ROI and make educated marketing decisions on your campaigns in real-time.
Benefits of using a URL Shortener
Using a URL shortener means your marketing content is always consistent and your customers become accustomed to seeing and using the same URL format throughout their customer journey with your brand.
More importantly the analytics that come with using a URL shortener mean you as a brand start to better understand your customer, resulting in a better overall customer experience and customer retargeting.
What is a Custom URL Shortener?
A custom, or branded URL shortener, is a method of using your own brand domain, like EXAMPLE.io, in your marketing content instead of using our generic ury.io domain. The benefits of this are that your brand name is always in your messaging, creating trust and affinity with your brand campaigns.
