Variable Data

Choose ‘Variable Data’ to bring up the different variables that can be added to the message. Click on #Short Link#


NOTE: With the exception of the #Short Link# variable, variables can be synced with the data import. For example, #First Name# will add the Contact First Name that is found in your original data that has been imported to the group that you are sending to. If the first name of your contact is missing then the system cannot add the first name


Short Link Variable

The #Short Link# variable will be placed in the desired position in your campaign message.

 If you do not choose to add the variable to your message, the short url will be appended to the end of the message.

URL Shortener will use 28 characters. Your remaining character count will be 132.


Using Your Own Domain in the URL Shortener

Please just input only domain name, no sub domain, no http(s), no www. (e.g. abc.com)


VERY IMPORTANT: Please make sure the domain and all subdomains will be pointed to IP address.  If you’re using Namecheap, go to Advance DNS setting -> Update or add A record, Host @, Value: and update or add another A record, Host *, Value:
