Updates to Our Bitly Integration: Use Zaps to Find Existing Bitlinks, plus Create Bitlinks with Custom Domains

Links are essential to executing and tracking your digital campaigns. Now you can use Zapier's integration with link management tool Bitly to automate your campaigns in whole new ways. Now you can set up Zaps that automatically search for an existing Bitlink in your Bitly account, then add that Bitlink to a Bitly campaign or post it to your social media accounts. If Zapier doesn't find the Bitlink you're looking for, it will automatically create it.

Plus, you can now use Zapier to automatically give your campaign links a personal touch. Rely on Zaps to create Bitlinks using one of your favorite custom short domains from your Bitly account. That way, you don't have to dedicate extra time to generating links with custom domains.

What's New with the Bitly + Zapier Integration

New Search

  • Find Bitlink: Finds an existing Bitlink in your Bitly account. Optionally, creates a Bitlink if none are found.

New Options for Actions

  • When using the Create Bitlink Action, you can tell your Zap to create Bitlinks with one of the existing custom short domains from your Bitly account.
