Enabling SMS Campaign Link Tracking

This feature helps you convert your Long URL to Short URL and tracks who has clicked on your links and visited your links. We will give you detailed insights of the mobile number, visited time, number of visits, browser, OS, IP, Region, etc., This helps you in understanding the SMS campaign click-through rate and further follow up with the prospective visitors.

What is SMS Link Tracking?

When you run an SMS Campaign and include a link in your SMS content and you want to know who has visited your link. Our Link Tracker feature helps you understand who has visited your link and provide other important analytics.

How does SMS Link Tracker Works?

We basically convert your long URL to short URL within the content and deliver SMS to the recipients. Each recipient will get a different short URl based on the mobile number. Once they click on that link, it will redirect them to your original website/app link.

Our system creates unique short token from 6 to 8 characters and generates a short URL just like goo.gl. So when user clicks on the link, we will tell you from which mobile number has visited your link.

Example: When you use long URL as http://websms.sammrat.com/docs/enabling-sms-campaign-link-tracking/, this will be converted to https://tx1.in/SAlhjS
