SMS Alert is a service provided by Bitly that can be used to alert users when a short url is clicked by another user. This gives users an opportunity to track their content as it spreads through the web. This service is free of charge (http://www.bitly.com/sms-alert.
It saves time by allowing you to use one link to spread messages to various social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, etc.
You can also shorten long and complicated urls with Bitly so that more people will click on it and visit your website. Having more traffic means more viewers, which means more business deals.
Using Bitly allows you to gain insights into the number of times your message was forwarded to different websites or apps. You can also see the ratio of views per visit to see how many people actually read your message versus those who just clicked on the link to see what it is about. You can also see where your message originated from as well as where it was forwarded.
Bitly has a limited character count, so you have to take note of the character count when crafting your message. Otherwise your message will not be able to reach its intended audience.
If you accidentally forget the password for your Bitly account, there is no way to recover your account because Bitly does not provide a password recovery top. This means that you cannot access your account if you do not remember your password.
