Short.cm is another interesting tool for affiliate marketing. This is only beneficial if you are using a url shortener too often. Short.cm is the best usl shortner i have a come across.
It gives you all the analytics and all the stuff which other url shortener provides you. But the real catch is it provides custom your domain shortener.
If you are google shortner the shortened link is somewhat like “goo.afafa”. But with short.cm you get your own custom domain name shortened which is great.
