A branded link is simply a short link – a shorter version of a URL you want to share online built around a brand name or related term.
Unlike default shortened links (like buff.ly or goo.gl) brands these days prefer to use a link that incorporates their name, associating themselves with the content they share, reinforcing brand awareness and increasing their brand recognition.
Other Examples: davide.link/CV or Yourname.marketing/Awesome-Blog-Post or MrPencil.news/Scoop

- Show what if your job/activity about or what you care of
- Show what is the link for
