  • We have moved from rarely using complex UTM codes to using them 100% of the time, giving us total visibility to campaign tracking in all media.
  • SMS engagement has improved, especially at events, by as much as 400% and we can track everything more effectively.

  • We have seen an increase in event surveys since user Bitly in addition to the QR code
  • There are less technical issues when users are trying to use the Bitly URL
  • Can't beat free and when we have the budget would upgrade as the costs for benefits is worth it
