Additional alternative to bit.ly - Custom Brand Domain in HubSpot Social Tool

Currently, a user needs to purchase a bit.ly  account if they want to have a custom short domain in their Social Post. 

 

It would be great if there are other Link Shortener tool can be integrated with HubSpot Social Post such as Rebrand.ly

I'm upvoting this. Bit.ly used to offer a basic level of service that included one custom domain as recently as a year ago. They've now moved that to a paid plan that costs $350 a year, so you can no longer use Bit.ly with a branded domain on a small scale without paying. https://support.bitly.com/hc/en-us/articles/360025607351-How-to-set-up-your-custom-domain-in-Bitly

 

Rebrandly offers 5 domains and up to 500 branded links for free. It would be great if HubSpot offered Rebrandly as an alternative integration. Great for startups that want to scale into a paid tier without paying up-front costs. https://www.rebrandly.com/pricing

Branded links are extremely useful to increase Click Through Rate and showcase your brand:

The option to turn of shortened links would be an amazing addition to this tool! 

If I want to include my website in social media posts now, it gets shortened automatically and that's not something I want to happen. 

 

I hope to see this implemented soon!

All great points - I personally much prefer rebrand.ly to bit.ly, and would love for that option as a custom URL shortener, but there should also be the option not to shorten links. It makes sense sometimes - if you're sharing a long and unwieldy URL, but if you're sharing your website (www.xyz.com)  it's crazy that it replaces it - particularly when it's sometimes equally short! 

 

I have to go into the posted social media posts and edit it within the network to put the original URL back - not exactly a great workflow
