Connecting Khoros to BL.INK

The first field will ask for your domain you plan to shorten URLs for. Then enter your API key.
Note: Check out this article for how to find your API key.
In the last field, labeled Primary Base URL, enter app.

Try composing a message including a long URL, and use the shorten on publish option. When the message publishes, it will automatically create a short link with your branded domain that will be tracked by BL.INK Analytics. You can see your basic BL.INK stats within Khoros Marketing, and if you'd like to dig deeper, log into your BL.INK account for more detailed analysis.
