How to use Linkthis

Learn how Linkthis functions & how to use it 3 minutes read

To use Linkthis effectively, we should first explore its framework, starting with Projects.

 

What are Projects?

Think of Projects like shells that hold nuts or the folders that carry your documents. Projects exist to enhance your use and provide more organization. 
They have 2 primary purposes:

  1. Seperate your links into categories
  2. Allow more in-depth analytics

 

How do I create a Project?

  1. Access your Dashboard

Access the Linkthis Dashboard from the home screen.

  1. Click "Create Project"

Create a project by clicking the button

  1. Write your Project name

Write a project name, for example, Bob's Tools

Congratulations! Now that you've created your first project, you're on your way to collecting more valuable usercentric data. 
Next is what to do within your project.

 

What are Project Linkthis pages?

Project Linkthis pages are the customizable pages that hold your links. A good example of a Linkthis page is linkth.is/get-one. The links you see on that page are created within the Linkthis page.

You can have an endless amount of Linkthis pages within a Project, for free.

 

How do I create a Linkthis page?

  1. Within your selected Project, click "Create"

Click on Create within your Project

  1. From the dropdown, click "Linkthis page"
  2. Assign a URL to your Linkthis page. For example, if your company name is "Bob's Tools," you could make the link "tools" or "bobs-tools" or "bobstools" or "tools-by-bob." Get creative! You can make it whatever you'd like. If you chose "bobstools," the link for your Linkthis page would be linkth.is/bobstools.

Create a Linkthis page URL

TIP: Your Linkthis page link cannot have a .com, .ca, or any domain extension. Just make it a keyword, business name, promotion, etc. A wrong link would be "www.bobstools.com" (that would look like linth.is/www.bobtools.com and won't work).

 

The correct and wrong URL format

We provide many options to customize your Linkthis page. To begin customizing, change the title, add a description, and choose a background. You can preview any changes you make to your Linkthis page live!

Don't forget to click the Update button after any changes.

To add and change links, follow the steps below or skip to the end to watch the video:

  1. Within the Linkthis page, click "Links"
  2. Click on the first link you see (it'll be called "Your own link here")

  1. Change the details
  1. OPTIONAL: Instead of changing the details, if you'd like, you can delete it by clicking the 3 dots on the right side of the link box

  1. Create a link by clicking the "Create" button and choose from the dropdown what you'd like to create
  2. Edit the link or "block" by repeating Step 2
  3. Deactivate links by toggling the switch in the link box

  1. Reorder links by clicking and dragging the three lines on the right side of the link box

 

 

Bonus

Linkthis is still in the beta stage. What that means is that we aren't in full production, so some things may not work as expected or may be overly complicated. If you notice something broken or think something should change, we'd appreciate any input. To provide feedback on a page, how we're doing, or if something is broken, click on the pink "Feedback" tab on the right-hand-side of the screen.
