It's very straightforward to use, and we were able to easily onboard business users that wouldn't normally engage with software of this type. There is somewhat of a learning curve with some of the administrative functions, but that is limited to one person on staff that has overcome it pretty easily.

Using Bitly to create shareable, trackable short links for social media couldn't be easier. Bitly is super easy to manage and offers easy monitoring of short links. Even with the few shortcomings or cumbersome features, Bitly is ranked number 1 for shortening links for our organization because of how simple it is to use.

There is no other service that I know of where the analytics are so easily accessed and understood - and the generation of links could not be any simpler. My 6 year old son understands how to read the metrics numbers, charts and how to make a custom link. You really cant be more user friendly than that!

Bitly is very simple to understand if you're using it for its basic function - link shortening. If you try to dig in a little further to look at analytics or do a really granular search of your links, you can hit some snags. It can take a little bit of getting used to, but the learning curve is minuscule.
