Today I want to share with you a really cool WordPress plugin.
Hey, it’s Brett Campbell here, creator and founder of the Authority Academy and today I want to share with you a really cool WordPress plugin. The plugin is called Pretty Links. The purpose of this plugin is it’s actually really, really cool and I’ve only really just discovered it myself.
Now you may have heard of another website called Bitly, which basically is a URL masker, which basically takes a really long URL and you’re able to turn it into a more prettier, smaller condensed-style link, so for example, you might have an affiliate link or you might have, even for example, your Facebook URL, right?
Instead of going Facebook.com/ whatever your fan page name is, the Pretty Link plugin allows you to use your own domain name.
For example, for me, my website is called brettcampbell.net and what I can do is I can create any link I want based off brettcampbell.net/ and then I get to label whatever the link I want it to be so, for example, I’m going to put an example down below in the comments and it’s a really cool way for you to be able to share your social links, your affiliate links, any of that.
For example, I was unlucky with the Instagram world. I couldn’t get my username Brett Campbell or Brett, in this case I had to go _brett_campbell, which can be quite confusing ’cause are, “God, do I put the underscore there? Do I not?”
Anyhow, what I can do now is I can do brettcampbell.net/instagram and what that will do is that redirect that link directly to my Instagram link so it’s a really cool WordPress plugin. It’s free.
It takes about 60 seconds to upload to your website and the really cool thing is you get to now create professional links and, yes, I know what you’re thinking, “Does it track how many people click on the links”?
Yes, it does so that’s another really cool tool so if you’re putting links out on social media and you want to see if it’s actually getting any interaction, you can go into the back of your WordPress plugin and you can check it out and it can tell you how many people have clicked on the link.
I really hoped you enjoyed that tip and I’ll see you on the next one.
