Link Shortener

Link Shortener

Emerson College has its very own link shortening service. Akin to Bit.ly, the shortener allows users to send shortened links via email, social media, and other communications in a more concise, trackable way.

The service:

  • Increases email Click-Through Rates with shorter, more palatable links
  • Removes chance of hyperlinks rendering incorrectly in different email clients
  • Tracks how many people click on your link along with other stats
  • Makes messaging more concise, especially in character-limited social media platforms like Twitter.

For example:

http://www.emerson.edu/about-emerson/offices-departments/communications-marketing/web-services/services/social-media

Becomes

http://ec1880.us/n0QX9

To use, simply visit http://ec1880.us/ and sign in with your Emerson credentials.

Happy shortening!
