Awesome tool to have short and customized links

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: TinyURL is one of those tools you will use without even thinking about it twice once you see how effective it is for your personal and professional use. Although I am using it in many different situations, I think its impact is most felt in my emails because clients can get a clean, organized email rather than emails full of very long links that might also activate the spam filter.

Pros:

The absolutely best feature at TinyURL is the fact that you can add your own personalization to the link and it makes it easily identifiable and trustworthy for users accessing it as they can read the link and see where they will get by clicking.

Cons:

No con - I always enjoyed using it and I can say for sure that I've been using it for more than 2 years in different situations like: adding links in social media BIO, sharing Google Drive Links to clients in emails (making it shorter and cleaner), affiliate links and many more.

Horrible Billing Practices & Zero Customer Service

1.0 last year

Comments: Any benefits that used to exist are now voided due to their behavior.

Pros:

I liked that I had the ability to shorten URL's as I needed. Shortening them is easy.

Cons:

1. Getting your domain into your account is a pain in the...2. Their billing practices are a reflection of how the actually feel about their customers. For over a year, I have paid monthly at $12.99/month. Recently my credit card expired, and I updated it. The moment I updated it, TinyURL charged me for an entire YEAR at once at $119.88 instead of $12.99. At first it wasn't a huge deal, I figured they would just correct it and refund the additional 11 months. NOPE! Not even close. First, there is NO NUMBER to reach them. The number on my credit card is a Google Voice number that is no longer in service. Google Voice??? Really. That's the same service the scammers trying to sell me a warranty on a car I sold 12 years ago use. So it forces you to go into your account and submit a ticket. I submitted the ticket over 2 months ago. TWO MONTHS AGO! I have responded to that same ticket 3 times and they have never responded. NOT ONCE. You can get a real idea of how good or bad a company is the moment there is an issue that needs resolution. If you use these clowns just pray nothing ever goes wrong that affects your business because they will completely ignore you.

A day to day link shortening must have!

5.0 2 years ago

Pros:

TinyURL is an app which silently goes about it's lengthy task of shortening links in a silent manner. I have found it an invaluable to quickly shorten long links as the URL shortening tool is probably the quickest from the tools out there.

Cons:

In my opinion, TinyURL is limited in it's advanced link tracking features when compared to other URL shortening software. It also does not integrate well with post scheduling apps such Buffer which is important.

Comments: I generate links a lot from my internet business, so TinyURL has always helped to shorten my URL and keep track of the generated URL

Pros:

The software is easy to use. It allows for saving of generated short URLs It's speedy generation of short URLs is second to known.

Cons:

I do have to clock in my reload button every time I have to create a new URL, which is stressful.
