What is a link shortener?
You need a URL shortener to contribute content to the online world. A URL shortener, also known as a link shortener, seems like a simple tool, but it is a service that can dramatically impact your marketing efforts.
Link shorteners transform any long URL into a shorter, more readable link. Users who click the shortened version are automatically forwarded to the destination URL. Think of a short URL as a more descriptive and memorable nickname for your long webpage address.
What are the benefits of a URL shortener?
How many people remember a long web address, especially if it has a lot of characters or symbols? A short URL can make your link more memorable. Not only does it allow people to recall and share your link with others easily, but it can also dramatically improve traffic to your content. On a more practical side, a short URL is also easier to incorporate into your marketing – whether you want to engage with your customers offline or online.
linkmyprofile.io is the best URL shortener for everyone, from influencers and small brands to large enterprises looking for a simple way to create, track and manage their links.
What is a custom URL shortener?
A custom URL shortener, sometimes referred to as a branded URL shortener, lets you brand your links. For example, instead of linkmyprofile.io/2m98yu, you could use a custom short URL like yourbrand.com/pictures.
There are several benefits of branding your short links. Branded links build trust between your audience and your business, drive more clicks, give your audience a preview of where they are being taken, and increase brand awareness.
A link-shortening service that includes custom short URLs is vital to improving audience engagement with your communications. A short URL is good, but a custom URL works every time.

What is a QR Code?
Quick response, or QR, is a type of barcode that can store a multitude of information. The obvious difference between a QR Code and Barcode is its appearance. A QR Code is always in the shape of a square and contains smaller, even blocks similar to Tetris. On the other hand, a Barcode has vertical bars of different thicknesses and is often accompanied by a serial number.
The beauty of QR codes is that almost any type of data can be encoded. In addition, you can easily track most data types, so you will know precisely when and from where a person scanned your QR code.
QR Codes are everywhere, and they are not going away. They are a great asset to your company because you can easily capture and convert users. In addition, you can customize QR codes to match your company, brand, or product.
What are dynamic QR Codes?
Because of its versatility, a QR Code can be programmed to do many things. First, it is helpful to understand the different types: Dynamic and Static. A Dynamic QR Code benefits businesses or nonprofits in their marketing strategy because of its advantages. Dynamic QR Code solutions are editable, which means if you made a mistake and only noticed it after the QR Codes were printed, you can easily log in to the dashboard and fix them without changing the appearance of the already printed Codes.
