Coming from Back.ly or Snip.ly? Here are instructions that will help you to set up your Rite.ly Link Ads (CTAs) in no time. Use Rite.ly on a no-credit-card free trial and then, when you pay, use Rite.ly completely white-label, with your logo, and your own custom domain.

What are the main differences between Back.ly and Rite.ly?

Now defunct Back.ly provided a way to make a shortlink (aka "tiny URL" or shortened link) of a full URL so that when you shared the shortlink, you would leave a message and link "back" to your site.





Rite.ly lets you advertise with video, text or image ads (aka "CTAs") and also embed tracking and remarketing, affiliate link pixels), and control the branding, white-labelling and every element of design. Rite.ly wins on affordability, white-labelling (replace Rite.ly with your subdomain, your logo and logo link in ads), and video ads, too, which nothing else offers.

A closer competitor to Rite.ly is Snip.ly
