Adventures With Rebrandly
I have been playing around with a new app called Rebrandly – and I recommend that you do too. It is a link shortening app that helps creates memorable links – and it is cheap as chips!
I think I paid $4 for the domain “Backhouse.Link” and I can create up to 500 links for my business – all editable. There are several examples, but some examples of this are www.backhouse.link/Chat or www.backhouse.link/blog – these are two I have created.
The “chat” link forwards you to a robot I built on Facebook. That in in itself is a wonderful thing. The other link (www.backhouse.link/blog) will forward to my latest Blog posts on Andrew Backhouse Design. But that will take a bit of work…
This set up is great for social media – I can now keep an eye on all of my links and people can remember them better – for instance, Instagram does not allow a link in the comment. But, If I posted a link like www.backhouse.link/Blog then people would remember it easier.
It comes in to it own with massive URLs – like on Amazon or some such.
There are alternative for link shorteners – most free – some examples are Bitly and TinyURL – but I wanted something that was on brand – something that worked with my business, so I went with Rebrandly and sorted it so www.backhouse.link was the shortened root. I am chuffed with it.
