January 28th, 2020 - Advanced branded link options via API
Rebrandly routing features for branded links have always been one of our strengths. Just a few link management tools let you route traffic on your URLs based on the geolocation, language, time etc... of the person who clicks. Even fewer tools provide this service in a reliable way. Today, we extended the routing feature to include this option at API level. It is now possible to empower your branded links using our API specific endpoints. This is possible with our standard API as well as with extended workspaces API that lets you create up to 1,000 links per second.

January 18th, 2020 - HSTS Strict Security Policy
Security is an everyday keyword for our engineers. This is something we strive to excel in. For this reason, the HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) has been implemented for our website and our dashboard. In short, it makes any browser auto-force unencrypted/HTTP connections to be encrypted/HTTPS

January 10th, 2020 - ReplyBuy branded links for your SMS
When it comes to sending SMS for marketing or transactional messages - the link structure is key! There are at least three primary elements to consider:

  • Links must be short
    You have limited space for each SMS - you don't want to have to send two or more SMS because of the link length, so keep it concise.

  • Deliverability makes the difference
    SMS containing links created with generic URL shorteners are often left undelivered or blacklisted. This is because generic URL shorteners are used by thousands of people (including spammers).  Don't risk using them, opt to use branded links instead.

  • Showcase your brand 
    A link with your branded, custom domain is more trusted than a link without - you can get up to 39% additional click-through rate.

Our partner ReplyBuy just integrated Rebrandly branded links into their platform. Now, it will be super easy for their customers to create messages that include 100% custom branded links. Read the full documentation

Mobile Deep Links Support 
Rebrandly users can now create mobile deep links directly from their branded links. Unlike traditional web links that bring users to your website, deep links allow you to send those users to a particular piece of content or product directly within your mobile app. Anyone who doesn't have your app installed will be automatically redirected to the App Store or Google Play Store and prompted to download it. Deep links are a paid feature and not available in all subscriptions, to learn more get in touch with our team.

Aggregate Report by Account 
This report reveals click stats for all of the links in the owner’s account, totalled up for all of the workspaces that user owns. This means that links created by both the workspace owner and invited teammates will be grouped together as a total amount. Bear in mind, this report shows clicks for links from all teammates in workspaces you own, but not for links in workspaces which belong to other users and that you are a teammate of. Learn more about aggregate reports or speak to our sales team if you'd like to enable aggregate reports in your account.

Active Teammates 
Some Rebrandly plans include teammates, extra users you can add to your workspaces to share branded links as a team. Previously, each time you invited a teammate to a workspace they counted against your teammate quota, which varies from account to account. From now on, Rebrandly will only count users who logged in during that billing cycle (month) against your quota. This means if you have a quota of 25 teammates but have invited 30, you'll only get charged over quota if all 30 teammates log in and use their accounts. Find more info on teammates here.

A+ Encryption Quality for Branded Links 🔐
We’re committed to security and make continuous improvements to our platform to empower your branded links with first-class security standards. Under the oversight of our engineers, all branded domains in Rebrandly are now getting the A+ grade in the encryption quality testing tool provided by Qualys SSL Labs. This means that when web browsers attempt to navigate a branded link, our servers will force them using a strongly encrypted communication channel first so that your traffic can’t be hijacked (and redirected elsewhere) or decrypted later.

Updated Slashtag (slug) Suggestor 🐌
When you're creating branded links in the dashboard, Rebrandly auto-generates a random slashtag (URL slug) for you. If you don't want or need to use a specific keyword, you can always go with our suggestion. And now, our system will take the domain name you're using into account when selecting the slashtag. For users, this means shorter slashtags when using custom domains.

Downgrade or Delete Account Controls ☠️

We want to do everything we can to help our users empower their links, but with that said, sometimes customers need to downgrade or delete their Rebrandly accounts. Now, when you click on your account avatar and navigate to your subscription page and scroll to the bottom, you can request to downgrade or permanently delete your account (and all of the links/click data associated with it) directly from the dashboard. If you've got questions or concerns about your account please contact us today. Read more

Teammate and Workspace List Optimization 👯‍♀️

We've added a workspace and teammate list to the Workspaces tab of the dashboard. This means that now, users with Workspaces enabled in their accounts can see a list of all the workspaces they own as well as a list of all the active teammates in those workspaces. From these lists, owners can bulk edit their workspaces as well as teammate permissions. If you haven't got workspaces as a part of your subscription, get in touch and we'll help you find the right plan!
