Mark Josephson, CEO at Bitly, joins the Social Pros Podcast to discuss link management and how it can drastically improve your business’ bottom line.

Use Your Links Wisely

How to Track Social Media Better with Bitly and Link ManagementWhether in a movie or a tv show, or maybe even as the setup for a joke, you’ve probably become familiar with the archetypal conflict of the artist vs. the CEO.
It’s an ageless cliche that pits the creative mind against the business mind, the aesthetic against the practical. There seems to be an impression that these things are elemental opposites and it would take a wizard to magically bring the two together.
This is where Bitly CEO Mark Josephson steps in and drops some serious knowledge. With Bitly not only is there a beautiful way to transform ugly, cumbersome links into attractively branded statements, but there is a myriad of benefits that your business can gain from utilizing them.
According to Mark, business is about increasing the bottom line, and the most efficient way to do that is to learn your customer. Through Bitly he has created a way to personalize and streamline the customer experience, saving you time and money, all while strengthening your brand.

In This Episode

  • How Bitly’s approach to marketing helped them grow from a simple idea to a global enterprise
  • The importance of creating a unique and streamlined customer experience
  • How shorter links strengthen branding while saving time and money
