Social Link Measurement allows you to measure metrics, such as click throughs, for links posted outside of PoliteMail. For example, you can generate a measured link for a website, put it in a Twitter or Facebook post, and view the results in PoliteMail.

To use Social Link Measurement click on the icon in your main PoliteMail tab.

Give the link a name, input the source URL, and click Create. For this example, the URL of PoliteMail's profile on G2 reviews will be used.

Once you have the measured URL, copy that and place it into your social media post.

To edit or review the results, navigate to Results > Social Link Measurement.

If you need to copy or view the Measured URL, select the link by clicking on it . A new window will open with text fields that you can copy from.  To view the metrics, double-click on the link.

To copy or view a Measured Link, select it from the list and then choose the appropriate command under the Actions button.

QR Code Generation

The Social Link data grid also displays a QR code for each link that you can export.  This allows you to quickly create QR codes that can be tracked.

  1. Go to Results > Social Link Measurement.
  2. Select the desired social link, then click the 'Generate QR Code' button.  The QR code will download  as an SVG file that you can paste into any communication you wish to measure.

TIP: If you would like the QR code in another format such as PNG or JPG, you can use a third party website such as QR Code Generator.  Be sure to enter the URL generated from PoliteMail (the measured URL) and not the source URL.
