What is Sendible?
Sendible is a social media management tool designed for agencies to manage multiple brands through one dashboard.
Why should I enable this integration?
By connecting your Bitly account, you can shorten the links in your social media posts. This keeps the link metrics in your Bitly account and, if you have a custom domain, creates custom branded links that increase engagement and brand recognition.
Who can set this up?
Anyone with a Bitly account and a subscription to a Sendible plan that includes this feature.
How do I connect Sendible to Bitly?
Before you set up the connection in Sendible, you need to generate an access token in your Bitly account. Follow the steps at How do I generate an OAuth access token for the Bitly API? to do so.
To connect Sendible to Bitly:
- Log in to your Sendible account.
- Go to Settings.
- Select Publishing preferences in the right sidebar.
- Under URL Shortening, select Bitly as your default shortener and paste your access token into the appropriate field. To use your custom domain in your Sendible posts, enter it next to bit.ly pro domain field.
- Click Save.
Now you can use Bitly to shorten links when you create a post in Sendible. These links are created in your default app group (used as the default for all integrations).
