Mogli URL Icon_RedText messages are a simple, elegant way to quickly and reliably connect with key stakeholders. Confirmations, reminders, collecting small bits of information, and basic conversations are some of the most effective ways to boost engagement in a personal way.

But what about those times when you need to undertake a more complex interaction? The most obvious approach to this is to include a web link within your text message. However inserting traditional web links into your text messages can create challenges. The biggest challenge is the addition of extra characters into your message which will almost certainly cause your message to consume two or more message segments when sent. To learn more about message segments and the role they play in text messaging, check out this Texting 101 blog post about them.

Beyond the increase in message segments long url links can be unsightly inside of what could be otherwise be a brief message. Your long link may also make your recipient think twice before clicking through.

Despite some of these downsides, there is no question that when a link is required there is really no substitute to get your contact pointed to where you need them.
