Level-up your engagement game with URL tracking
Send on-brand shortened links
that you can track for engagement metrics.
The 360 SMS App lets businesses and users round-out recipient experiences by allowing text messages to send out ‘trackable links’ to measure messaging effectiveness.
Shortened URLs can also include relevant subdomains to build trust. This lets you stay off SPAM lists, besides saving money on character limits.
Trackable links let users of the 360SMS app act as ‘read receipts’ of sorts but also let you gauge interest by checking the number of times and duration that a link was clicked.
Links can be shortened automatically, sent to individual users. Interaction can then return click metrics to be used for drill-down reports, segmentation, and visualizations.
