Short SMS link tracking

Automatically shorten your text message’s URLs to just 22 characters and save on SMS credits. Track which recipients clicked a link.

Save SMS characters

When one text credit is 160 characters, shortened links can be cost-effective.

Send unique URLs

Links automatically become unique for each contact - even with bulk SMS.

Track SMS campaigns

See exactly who did or did not click through. Export into a report and re-engage.

How short trackable links can help your business

Rather than use a third-party URL shortener, paste your original link and let us do the rest. Send SMS from our online portal, an API integration, or via e-mail.

  • Automatically shorten long URLs

    If your URL begins with https:// we will convert it into a short link (for example, https://nxt.to/abcdefg). Or, speak to us about branded links to increase trust and familiarity (for example, https://brand.to/1234567).

  • Create unique links even when sending bulk SMS

    We will take your original URLs and convert them in real-time. Whether you are sending to a single person or a million people, no two contacts will get the same link. This makes it easier to track recipients individually.

  • Create click-through-rate reports

    Export a list of those who did not click on your links and re-engage with them. Or, segment those who clicked through, and follow up with a nurture campaign. Reports can be as detailed as you like, right down to the minute the SMS was opened.

Ways to use

With over 65, 000 customers across countless industries, we’ve seen short SMS link tracking enhance many use cases. Short trackable links can provide insights in many ways, including:

Employee communication

If you have a last-minute update or need to share an important document, trackable URLs let you know who has opened it.

SMS marketing campaigns

Use SMS reports to optimise future campaigns. Pull insights on how people engaged for remarketing and nurturing.

SMS payment reminders

Rest assured that your tenants or business clients have seen their SMS invoice. Follow up if a trackable link has not yet been opened.

Emergency SMS alerts

Short URLs make it easier for governments and councils to track who in the community received time-sensitive and important alerts.
