Branded short links – Yay or Nay?
Ladies and gentleman, fellow pet lovers, pet bloggers, and pet websites:
A short time ago, I purchased the domain name of Fuzzy.love to start using my own branded short links through a pet-friendly domain name (fuzzylove sounded so much sweeter than Bitly). So my tweets, facebook posts/shares will all contain my page posts shortened to fuzzy.love/PostName.
After setting it up, I thought other people might be interested in doing link-sharing under a pet-branded link shortener rather than using the generic brand of Bitly or Owly. I would have to set up a big server to handle increased traffic, and that would cost more, so it would have to be a small-charge service. I don’t want to do this unless there are interested parties, so I toss the question out to everyone — is anyone interested in this? If so, what would you deem an appropriate amount to use a pet-branded short link service?
The program I have running will also integrate with your WordPress website so that your site automatically generates the branded short links for you without having to manually add them to the link shortener (unlike Bitly).
It also has built-in analytics that allow you to track every click that is made on a certain link, and includes pre-made toolbars that allows you to auto-create branded short links of your choosing on any webpage you visit and automatically share it through Twitter or Facebook.
Here’s a screenshot of the WordPress integration (it has its own plugin):
And here is a snapshot of the stats tool:
Would you be interested in having your own pet-friendly branded shortlinks?
