Flexibility. Adaptability. Adopting new technologies and workflows. These are some of the things 2020 taught us. So it seems only fitting that the newest features Bitly is releasing in 2021 are focused on making sure that Bitly works anywhere and any way you do.
We want you to be able to shorten and brand links from anywhere you prefer to work. Whether that’s working in the Bitly application, on the mobile app, in spreadsheets that you can import into Bitly, or shortening directly in other applications like social media management platforms (Sprout Social, Sprinklr, etc), or Chrome, WordPress, Salesforce or hundreds of other apps.
Let’s take a look at some of the different ways you can save time and be more productive by shortening, branding, sharing and tracking your links from the various places and ways you work.
Shorten Your Links in Bulk
The new CSV Bulk Shortening feature allows you to shorten and brand your links from a spreadsheet all at once. That means you can continue to organize your links in your spreadsheets, and eliminate the tedious copying and pasting back and forth from spreadsheets to Bitly and back to spreadsheets. With the new CSV bulk shortening feature, you can shorten up to 10,000 links (depending on the plan) enabling you to save time, reduce the number of errors and shorten links at scale.
Shorten Your Links Using Integrations
We know you have a whole arsenal of tools you work with. From social media management platforms, to CRM, to website and blog builders, to communications platforms and so on. It can be annoying to be working in an application and have to jump out to Bitly to shorten a link and then copy and paste it back in. Using Bitly’s API, you can integrate with thousands of other tools so you don’t ever have to leave the application you’re working in and can stay focused on the task at hand.
Our new WordPress Plugin allows you to shorten and brand a link every time you publish a page or post on your WordPress site (and we even support custom domains!). Using the plugin, those short links will be created through your Bitly account. This means you can keep your links and click metrics all in one place, making it easier to track the success of your efforts.

Shorten Your Links on Mobile
Bitly also has a mobile app so you can keep up your productivity on the go. With Bitly’s mobile app you can create, customize, and share sms links right from your phone and track their performance —even if you don’t actually go anywhere at all!
Shorten Your Links Using Bitly’s Chrome Extension
To keep your workflow as streamlined as possible, leverage your browser’s Bitly extension. That means you won’t ever have to leave the page you’re working on to shorten or share a link. In fact, you won’t even have to log in to your Bitly account.
To work via browser extension, all you have to do is click the Bitly button in your toolbar, or right-click on a page to quickly create a short link from the current URL you’re working on. From there, the link is automatically copied to your clipboard where it’ll be ready to paste into a post, message, or other documents. You can now also generate a QR Code for the current page.
