What is IBM Watson™ Marketing?
IBM Watson™ Marketing is a platform to manage content, apps, and much more while leveraging IBM's AI services. Silverpop is a product within that platform that includes automation for email marketing and social.
Why should I enable this integration?
To shorten the URLs in your social posts and SMS messages using your Bitly information. This creates short links based on your own Bitly settings and retains click metrics in your Bitly account. Authorizing the connection between your two accounts also allows Watson Campaign Automation to access your link history and statistics.
Who can set this up?
An IBM Marketing organization administrator with access to a Bitly account.
While we are happy to help you with Bitly troubleshooting, like verifying your rate limits, IBM built this integration and can help you if encounter any problems.
