Short-me is a free bulk URL shortener with custom landing, overlay pages. It is a fully featured URL shortening tool that you can use and it supports Geo targeting and link analytics, and you can edit the destination of a short URL easily. But the best part is that it lets you create custom splash pages that you can assign to any short URL you create.
The free plan of Short-me lets you create 10000 URLs and you can create up to 1000 splash and overlay pages. For the overlay pages, you can opt to create a notification box that will appear on the final target website. You can fully customize the notification widget as well as the splash pages with a background and an avatar image.
You will find a handy dashboard in the main website of this tool and there you can see most visited OS, most frequent location, and traffic type.
Free Bulk URL Shortener with Custom Landing, Overlay Pages: Short-me
All you have to do is create a free account on the main website of Short-me. After that, you can simply activate your account and start creating short links. Creating short links is very easy as you only have to specify a destination URL. Or you can use the batch mode to create short links from multiple long links quickly.
After you have created the link, you can keep tracking the number of clicks on it. Also, you can edit it again and change the destination URL if you want to.
Similarly you can go to the Splash Page section and then create one to be used for short links. Just enter details like avatar image, title, description, and some others. In the screenshot below, you can see how a Splash page looks like.
Here you are also allowed to create overlay pages. The difference between this one here and the previous one is that the overlay page adds a simple notification on the page just like social proof notifications. You can see this in action in the screenshot below.
There are some other features of this link shortener that you can explore on your own. We have covered link shortening services before and they are good, but they don’t really provide options like landing pages and overlay popups. So, just use the website to create short links and use them anywhere you want such as social media, your own websites or IM apps.
Short-me is a nice URL shortener you can use, no matter how much experience of using URL shortening servcies you have. Even though it is more suited for digital marketers, I’d say it will work for everyone. The free plan is nice, but if you subscribe to its paid plan, then you can unlock custom domains as well.
