Shrink your Links with

Because Sometimes Less is More

Share, shorten, organize, and track all your links in one place

Link2shrink’s primary function is in its name: to shorten your URLs.

Whether you’re employing URLs from third-party sites or Linktivity’s program links, their lengths can be cumbersome for memory or usage on social platforms such as Facebook or LinkedIn. Link2shrink addresses this issue by generating abbreviated redirect links that are universally applicable. While akin to other URL shortening services, Link2shrink stands out by integrating effortlessly with both Linktivity addresses and external sites, streamlining your process and cutting costs.

Link2shrink also helps track your lead sources. Get better insights into which social media or search terms produce the most click-throughs, and make smarter advertising choices accordingly. Get detailed reporting on click quantities, lead sources, browsers, devices, and platforms.

Link2shrink is built into all our Team products, but it also works as a standalone product for condensing internal and external URL's, regardless of the source.

With link2shrink, you can do the following

  • Convert any internal or external link into a short, easy-to-remember URL
  • Use these shrunken URL's with confidence on social media, signature links, and all other digital spaces you manage
  • Categorize each link for easy filtering & searching
  • Track how many clicks each link gets
  • Track referral sources, which browsers, platforms, and even devices are used on these links
  • Share blogs, product pages, shopping cart links, and much more in your marketing
  • Easy to learn, use, and organize
  • Fully integrated with all Team products of Linktivity

The UI for Link2shrink features the following:

  • like Link2forms, you click to add a new redirection (see above)
  • you enter the destination URL
  • Select a TLD, and then add a custom extension and check if it's available by clicking Create
  • if you don't enter anything, it will auto-generate an alphanumeric extension
  • when you save, it'll add this link to a list similar to Link2forms, with searching features (see below)
  • The service will include basic click-through statistics and source locators (number of clicks and which site the link came from)

System Requirements & Subscription Terms

  • A current Act! subscription (Act! v18 or higher)

Like all our Linktivity products, everything is available in one place within your Linktivity account, and accessible from your PC, MAC, tablet, or mobile phone. 


Shorten URL's and track Click-thru's

Works with external links

Whether it's an address from your website, a blog, or a product page in your shopping cart, URL's can be long, ugly, and hard to remember. And when it comes to social media services like LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook, sometimes they're prohibited. Link2shrink solves that problem by automatically converting long links to short ones, regardless of the source.

Shortens Linktivity URL's in a single click

Some of our Linktivity services like Link2forms, Link2events, and Link2calendar can generate long alpha-numeric URL's that are so unfriendly to look at they cannot be displayed without a hyperlink. Now Link2shrink can quickly generate a short URL right from within each of these services that is short enough to use anywhere. You can also create human-friendly custom links.

Easy to remember URL's

URL's that are easy to remember are easier to use for your customers. And the more you use our Link2 domains, the less they have to remember.
