How to get a URL for your Campaign

CTCT Employee

UPDATED: July 2018

 

Want to share your campaign on your website, social profiles, blog, or within a different campaign? You can use your campaign's Short URL! (Please note, in order to get a URL, the campaign needs to have been sent and cannot be in a draft or scheduled status) To access the short-link URL, click on Campaigns. Then, click on the button located to the right side of the sent email campaign called More. Finally, select the Share option and a pop-up will display the short-link URL.

Please note, the URL links to a web version of your email.

 

That’s it! Pretty easy, right? Have you used the Campaign URL? Where have you shared it?

Hello!

 

On our account the button says "More" not "Actions" and we do not have a "Short URL" option. Why is this? Is there any way to shorten the URL in this situation?

 

Thanks!

Hi @MichelleK683,

 

Sorry for any confusion! The short URL is still available on the homepage, see guide: Email Campaign URL.

 

You can also click on the title of a sent email and find the URL listed on the Email Details page: email detail.png

If we are not sending out the link to the survey by email, does this mean we cannot get a short URL?

Hello @MichelleK683,

 

You sure can! If you visit the dashboard for your survey you will see an option to "Add it to a webpage." This will provide you with a URL you can share outside of Constant Contact.

Hello,

I'd like to use a shortened link on LinkedIn but am unable to choose an image to accompany the link. Is this possible?

Hello @AnaR13. You should be able to choose an image when sharing a link on LinkedIn! You would first have to deselect the image that automatically pull by clicking the X in the top right corner as seen in the screenshot below:

From there, you can select the Image button to choose a different image saved on your computer

Hope this helps!

Thank you.

 

Currently an image is not populating when I paste the link.

 

Also, when I click the X I lose the "preview window" that lets readers know it's an actual link.

Hi @AnaR13. Yes, clicking the X will remove the preview of the link. However, the link will still work and will be clickable. The post will show as below with an attached image.

Is there a way to include the link in the email itself? automatically includes a link at the top of the email with "View this email in your browser"

 

Thanks! -Jen
