The create a link widget is a quick way for Partners to create new short links and vanity links to promote the brand(s) they work with. These links have tracking capabilities built right in.
They first select the brand they wish to promote from the dropdown.
Then they will enter a landing page, or leave this field blank to use the brand's default landing page.
For example, if they're trying to create a short link to a brand's particular product or service, you can put the URL to that page here.
In the link section, select:
http(s)://—the link will attempt to use the secure version of HTTP if possible, but will use regular HTTP as a fallback
http://—the link will only use regular HTTP.
https://—the link will only use the secure version of HTTP.
If they wish to customize the short link (known as vanity links), they can select [Edit] and change the text after the slash (/) in the link.
For example, they change the link to
acme.sjv.io/NewBirdSeedto indicate that this link sends viewers to the brand Acme's new birdseed product.
They can select Advanced to view the advanced options to add Sub ID and Shared ID values. See the SubID and SharedID article for details on these advanced features.
Finally, they select Create to create the new link.
Partners can also select the Facebook icon and/or the Twitter/X Icon to share this link directly on their social media accounts.
