What is the click-through URL?

The click-through URL is used to track "clicks" on a link you provide in your html email message. The URL entered in this field should be the page that you want to direct people to.

In the body of your html email message use the {click_url} tag for where you want people to view the link. When your meesage is sent out the {click_url} tag will be replaced by the URL you entered in the click-through URL field. The system will track the number of clicks if the link is... clicked. :)

 

 

Please note to mask the click through url:

  • Enter in text such as "Click Here"
  • Highlight the text.
  • Click the ink tool

  • On Insert/Edit Link screen click button Predefined tag {click_url} tag or enter {click_url} in the Link URL field.

After you send your message out you can view the number of CLICKS by going to the the AUTORESPONDERS tab. You'll see in the header a column for the number of clicks received.

Lastly the click-through URL only works for HTML email messages.... not plain text. This mean that you will not know ALL of the clicks on your url if you are sending out both an html and plain text versions. It does however good you a good look at the success of your copy and if you are enticing people to click on the link.
