Expanding Your Brand With a Shortened #URL

Shortened URL’s Can Carry Your Brand Further.  And that is good news.

Grabbing and shortening long URL’s is a solution that we are all familiar – with a host of players: google, bitly and tiny.  Each shortened URL using those solutions carries there brand across the social net – not yours.

A non-issue, until we stumbled upon a relatively new service by the name of ShortSwitch.   They provide shortened URL’s with a branded flavor – yours!  Here is an example they shared.

Here is a long URL from Entrepreneur.com, an article about Marketing Basics.  The long URL is http://www.entrepreneur.com/marketing/marketingbasics/index.html.  Bitly returns this: http://bit.ly/bJkeUQ and ShortSwitch offers their branded link as: http://shor.tswit.ch/pL.

There are a number of added features that we suggest you investigate – analytics, naming conventions, and others.
