Can a Dynamic variable be a URL?

I've created a new email campaign and saw that based on this article, I can insert dynamic links into an email. 


What I did was highlight the body text I wanted to link and then in the hyperlink field that pops up instead the following http://[[custom.FunraisinURL]]  which was based off the custom field I can insert as a variable (see below)

Custom field[[custom.my_custom_field_name]]


My custom field is the URL I intend to drop in but without the HTTP://


I duplicated the campaign to run a test but when I received the email, the URL didn't work.


Does anyone know why this may have happened.
