Creating a bit.ly link for event promotion
Part of the new online event set up process gives the chapter’s responsibility and control for creating their own bit.ly links. It easy and quick to do. First determine who from the chapter is responsible for this. Some chapters are having the programming DAL or marketing DAL do this, while others are having the person who filled out the event set up form do it.
The website is: https://bitly.com/
The first step is to create a free account. Once you’ve created the account, the steps are as follows:
1. Click "create" in the top right hand corner.
2. Then copy the registration page link and paste it in the field that says "Paste Long URL" (on the right-hand side of the screen).
3. From there that section will update and say "Customize Back-half" and that is where you can rename the bitly.
4. Then click "copy" and that is your bit.ly
If you have additional questions, please check with your region’s programming COE or marketing COE.
