URL Tracking is a Treat

URL Tracking is a Treat

As we move into autumn, people will be gearing up to purchase new clothes, food, and all the fun things that come along with this season. With Halloween, Thanksgiving, and eventually Christmas around the corner, ‘tis the season to buy things! So, if you are a business owner of any kind, this is a good time for you to “go big or go home” on digital marketing. 

More and more people are being influenced by what they see online. From the coffee we drink to the jackets we wear, we are all persuaded by what we see. It is quite possible that you have been a victim of the social media ad that has popped up on your feed. Maybe it was even shared by one of your favorite Instagram influencers or someone you follow on Twitter. This type of marketing truly does work for businesses. I know I have fallen for it a time or two. 

Custom analytics to track clicks

One of the best ways to take advantage of digital marketing is by using shortened links that are easily shared on different platforms. Sites like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube are constantly being used for selling products to their users. Putting ads on these sites or having users share your business’s shortened links can really be a big boost for you. The more a link is out there, the more people will find it. If the link is a short, simple link, it will be easier to share and will land you more clicks. More people to your site will inevitably mean more business for you. 

Once you have shared your shortened link, the real work is to find out if what you are sharing impacts your business. This is when a URL shortener that gives you tracking analytics is necessary. This will help you better target your strategy for sharing on these different platforms. 

If you want to find out if your media blasting is actually working, you must look into the tracking data stats on your links. This can be a big task if you do not have a tool that can help you break down the link’s metrics.
