One use case is if you have a very long URL address you can brand it with a shorter link. So let’s say your custom link forward-slash keyword. So that keyword could be anything.
What we like about Rebrandly is that you can use your own custom branded domain name. So you can register for your personal domain name. So now you can have a shorten link so now you can have your domain name forward slash and anything you want. Alternatively, you can use their rebrand shortened links however we find Facebook tends to block these links shorten services such as bit.ly and Rebrandly.
So the best practice is to register your domain name and then link it to your Rebandly account. On the backend, you can see the number of links shortened and the number of clicks that you have generated. And when you have a new link you want to shorten, click on the “New Link” button paste in the destination URL address, choose your branded link, in the “Slash tag” field add whatever name you will like to name the link and then click on the “Create Link” button.
Clicking on any one of the links you generated will give you the analytics for that particular link and it will show you the days of those clicks. It also shows you the countries and the “Unique Clicks” and “Non-unique Clicks” and a lot more analytics and data.
