Coming from Blanq.io, Back.ly, Rebrandly 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 Blanq.io and Rite.ly?

Blanq.io provides a way to make a shortlink (aka "tiny URL" or shortened link) of a full URL so that when you share the shortlink, your link represents your brand and can track geo/demographics of those who click it. It's great for assessing when you should post links, see which links or social posts containing links, etc. "work" with your audience. Blanq.io does nothing with actually advertising on links you share, though:

Rite.ly and Snip.ly are about maintaining the connection with those who click shortlinks in social posts, emails, etc. - and let you advertise on anyone's web pages. So, from the link - https://rite.link/XsJc - in this Tweet - you can see that I can advertise right on top of top-tier blogs, Tiktok/IG/Snapchat/Youtube videos and much more - even Meta's blog (formerly Facebook):

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

Rite.ly has flexible pricing that grows as your business grows.

NEW: even at the lowest paid tier, 5,000 clicks, Rite.ly now includes one custom subdomain!


Note that for links shortened with Rite.ly, Facebook and LinkedIn will not accept them. This is beyond our control; FB and LinkedIn are now blocking all short links created of full URLs. So, if using RiteForge, RiteBoost for scheduling posts, we suggest that you do not shorten links for posts you schedule to LinkedIn or Facebook. If just using Rite.ly, even with custom subdomain, please use them in Tweets, emails, IG comments - and everywhere else - just not in FB or LinkedIn.
