so I was doing book promos for fellow authors and a few needed to do last minute changes to the url or just add them last minute so i put this together to show how to do it without worrying if they can get to it before it posts
This is a way to get a url to use when you haven’t released your book yet but want to have your blog promo out and ready to go.
One go to smart url https://manage.smarturl.it/ and create an account it takes an email and password then a reply to there email.
Then go and log in.
then you click on create url
you will come to this page
Click country. (mostly I don’t know what the others do)
Then go to your default. (I used my amazon author page)
Copy the url from the page you chose
and put it in default box.
Then scroll down.
I tend to make it something to do with the book(if it goes through this will be your url)
then click save.
Now you have an url to put in to your pages you send for blog and wouldn’t need to have someone add it later.
When you get the book url. (presale or it goes live)
Go back to smarturl.it and log in.
Click on the link for the book url you made before.
Copy your book link. (I use us because that’s where I am at)
Paste it both places.
Click the background.
I know this works for amazon now what ever country their in it will go to that amazon.
Then click save and your done.
Now the url in the blog will take them to the right amazon page for them.
it also keeps track of where and how many clicks the url receives.
this is meant to help if you find it confusing or errors please let me know
as always thanks for reading
