hey what's up you guys in today's video
we are going to be talking about bitly
comm what it is and how to use it let's
go
[Music]
[Applause]
hey what's up you guys alright so this
will be a pretty quick video we are
going to cover billy calm billy calm is
all it is is a URL link shortener so i
just want to show you guys how to use it
it's super easy to use it's it's it's 
free you don't have to pay to use
busines calm and again all it is is a
URL link shortener okay and the reason
why you want to use a URL link shortener
is because for example let's say you're
writing some ad copy and you want to
include a link in that ad copy let's say
let's just pull this link here you don't
want to have this super long link inside
of your ad copy because it's just gonna
look way too ugly it's gonna take away
too much space in that and that and that
post in a text box
you want to be able to have a short link
makes it look clean and it doesn't take
up too much space in that text box so
let's head over to Billy comm and when
you get to Billy comm you are going to
be prompted to create an account you
create your account and again it's free
okay I haven't had I created probably
hundreds of links inside of Billy comm
and I haven't had it tell me that I've
maxed out there's probably some other
features that come with the page with a
paid membership well I don't use it you
won't need it so when you head into
building to create your account and we
are going to hit this big orange button
here and you're going to take the URL
that you want to shorten okay so here's
this link right here we are going to
paste that in there and then it's gonna
give you your link down here now you can
customize it let's say this is a Google
sheet so you can just go gooshie or
something like that
or GC something like that just to kind
of name it a little bit you don't have
to a lot of times I don't I just leave
it as is one thing that I would
recommend is to make sure that you title
this the title the link okay so that you
can so that way you can go back in here
and you can search the link that you're
looking for and you'll be able to find
it okay so you want to be able to you
want to be able to search it and find it
right away but that you have it to
scroll through all your links and and
try to find the one that you're looking
for so that is it guys that is how you
set up a bitly link now you just you
just go ahead and copy this and then put
it into whatever you want to use this so
that's it guys if you guys have any
questions on Billie and how to use it
please drop them in the group and I will
catch you guys in the next video so
there's you guys it's a very very simple
tool and it's a very great software to
be aware of I highly recommend that you
use it whenever you're posting on social
media you're avoiding those big ugly
long links because it's just not
appealing when people see those links on
things like social media on Facebook or
Instagram or if you're sending a link
via text message or an email so I hope
you found that helpful and I'll catch
you guys next time
you
