How can I shorten a link in an SMS?

Due to SMS character limitation, links included in messages must have the minimum number of characters. For this reason LabsMobile platforms provides cost free link shortener and click statistics.

It is possible to include links of any file, web page, landing, image, etc. in the messages. The links shortening can be done through any of the following methods:

  • - Creating stable links. Through the Links category of the Attachments section you can convert long links into short links available to be used through all message sending forms.
  • - Replacement of all links. Through the Account settings section it is possible to enable Replace links so the platform replaces all the links sent in the text message by shortened links.

Shortened links have format and redirect to the final Url. This type of link occupies the minimum number of characters in an SMS and also provides information through each click.

Each click information includes:

  • - Device details.
  • - IP address.
  • - Day/time of click.
  • - Approximate or precise geographic location (for landing with activated location).
  • - Language.
  • - Recipient phone number.

This information will be available in SMS History and Clicks category of the Statistics section.
