How to easily create branded short links on Squarespace for free

Tired of forgetting your affiliate links?

Want to send your fans to a specific page but hate how long the URL is?

Have a broken link on your website you need to redirect?

Want branded short links without paying for a premium level bit.ly account?

You can do all of these things (and more!) on Squarespace for free.

That’s right!

The ability to redirect your readers anywhere you want is built in to your Squarespace website by default - it’s called URL Mapping.

If you’ve heard of URL Mapping, it was probably when you migrated to Squarespace from another platform and needed to ensure your blog post links were getting redirected correctly.

But have you touched it since then? If not, you are missing out on a powerful tool.

One example of how you can use URL Mapping is to send people to a shorter affiliate link.

For example, MeganMinns.com/ConvertKit will redirect you to my ConvertKit affiliate link. Way easier than telling you to go http://mbsy.co/convertkit/19947725 right?
