Now there are a lot of link shortening services, but quality units. And even for those, most of the functions are closed behind a hard paywall.
We have been using one of these for several years. We check statistics, generate QR, change names. And we pay 15,000 rubles a month for this.
Service appeared in 2020 Cli.co, which for many will become the uncontested choice. Because knows how to do everything that his competitors do, but is free.
Cli.co was developed by a company from Russia Intis Telecom, which is engaged in SMS-mailing. The service turned out to be an additional project, which is being developed for the convenience of the main clients.
On the site you can:
• Shorten links
• Choose a domain and add your
• Change the name of the link to a beautiful one
• Generate QR code
• Collect statistics
• Do all this through a bot in Telegram
Below you will learn more about all the functions of the fresh service and why all this can be used for free, unlike competitors.
Create beautiful links for browser and app
Cli.co allows two kinds of links.
Shorts are needed in order to shorten long URLs in the browser. For example, you have a selection of products on Aliexpress, and you need to compose a neat post on Telegram.
Usually, the links from the store are huge and consist of hundreds of fence symbols. The shortlink will turn them into more relevant and capacious ones and display the page on the web with the same success.
In the service, you can choose a traffic source or describe your own. You can choose from Google Adwords, Yandex.Direct, Vkontakte, Facebook, Target My.com and always open fields for your options.
Disciplines after clicking, they transfer the user not to the browser, but directly to the application for which they were created. So far Cli.co only supports Instagram, but it works great already. Check it yourself: https://cli.co/tinelray.
It is useful if it is important for you to create a page with links to your social networks, where people will come as efficiently as possible, this deep link will immediately offer to get to your page and see all the content on it.
Edit shortened link
Sometimes abbreviated links look suspicious because of a mess of letters and numbers of different case.
When you get the short address to go, you can edit it however you like. To do this, in the “Result” field you will need to click “Edit” and enter your name.
For example, here’s something strange:
Turning into neat:
In fact, this will be a new shortlink. Bitly offers the same feature, but only 50 times a month on a free plan. On Cli.co they can be changed and created endlessly.
Lifehack. If you add “+” to the ready link, you will be redirected to the cli.co site with information about it. So anyone will know exactly where she is leading, and the author will also immediately get into his personal account. Check it yourself: https://tg.sv/teleshevsky+
Generate your QR code
When you have made a link (any), you will also have a QR code for it.
If you try to edit the result, the code will change with each letter.
Usually, for such a function, you need to look for another service, but here everything is in one. Although QR is generated on Bitly, you have to pay for it with a subscription.
Here you can do it for free and even without registration.
Choose a domain and create your own
Cli.co offers dozens of options for starting a link. You can choose from recognizable combinations like fb.sv, vk.sv, tg.sv. They are not affiliated with Facebook or Telegram, they just look similar so as not to scare away whoever will click.
There is an option that will inspire even more confidence. In the service, you can make the beginning of a link with your name.
As a result, you will not have easy
I have not seen a more convenient service yet, because you can choose your name for both the beginning of the link and the end.
Bitly also has this option, but it is covered by a paid plan. The advantages of such a solution can be attributed only to the fact that the bit.ly prefix is now recognized by anyone. But that’s even worse than a link that starts with the name of the company.
Get accurate statistics
In the personal account there is a detailed table with all the transitions on the links. Show:
◖ Number of clicks
◖ Click time
◖ IP address
◖ Device type
◖ Browser version
◖ Information on UTM
◖ User country
These data are exported in the .CSV format by clicking the button above the data, and you can view them on the “Statistics” tab in the “Reports” section.
Above this section, you will see two other sections: “Shortlink reports” and “Deeplink reports”. They show graphs right on the site, where each color is a separate day with the number of clicks on links to the nearest second.
Almost no one gives out such a detailed analysis that can be downloaded. And for the same Bitly, the information is again hiding behind a $ 29 tariff.
Shorten and change links through a bot in Telegram. Or in a browser extension
The method is useful for those who often work on a smartphone. Although the site has a mobile version, this option is convenient due to the simple interface.
The bot is called @clico_bot.
It can be used with or without authorization to your account. In the second case, you can make the link shortened, but you won’t be able to edit it and view statistics.
By button To come in You will be transferred to the browser window, where you need to enter your username and password, and then allow the integration of the profile into the bot. After that, everything that you do in Telegram will be saved in your account.
Now, with the help of simple steps, you can shorten the required link, edit its domain, set the desired name and get into your account by clicking Statistics.
There are also browser extensions Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. In the second case, it has already been developed and will soon be published in the catalog.
With this add-on, you can shorten the link to an open page with one button, change the domain and customize the text.
The service is absolutely free. They will also pay
Cli.co was developed by an international company from Russia Intis Telecom with offices in London and Kazan, which helps businesses create SMS-mailing.
Basically, the link shortening service was a project for internal use. The goal was to make it easier for customers to track the effectiveness of the messages that end users receive.
therefore the head of Intis Telecom has no need to compete with all major link shorteners and earn directly from it.
The developers have a goal to make a PRO plan for large companies that generate links in the thousands. But for now, the solution is beneficial within the company, so everyone has access to it.
To increase demand and thus better assess their capabilities, the company even made referral system, in which you will be paid for each person involved.
To do this, select the item in the menu Partner, select Reflinki and create a link that will attract people.
This is the best free solution right now. Head and shoulders above everyone
Due to the fact that the Cli.co service has been part of a larger company from the very beginning, there is no direct need to make money on it.
This is a unique event for this kind of services., where you are given free to change the domain and name of the link, create deep links on Instagram, use QR codes, and also collect and upload accurate statistics about clicks.
Nobody else has that. Therefore, I recommend that everyone visit Cli.co at least once and test everything on their own.
Moreover, the service is completely in Russian. And Bitly can’t even give that.
