CSV bulk upload and Campaign templates
Follow the templates for each type of upload. Here are the templates:
Each template has slightly different available fields. Some of the values for the columns are optional, but the column headers must be present in your upload file.
With bulk shortening, you have access to all of Bitly's robust engagement metrics, including location and technology data for each link.
With Campaigns, you get that same engagement data for your links while also being able to view link performance across Campaigns and channels.
