How to use SwifLink for Content Creators (8 Best Steps)

This Starting Guide is to learn how to use SwifLink for Content Creators. You can use SwifLink’s Free Plan or our Creators Plan to get started.

Step 1: Register

You need to register for a free account or get started with a Trial for our Creators Plan, no credit card is needed to get you started. Alternatively, you can opt to start straight with Creators Plan and start with all the extra benefits. If you already created an account, you can just log in.

Step2: Create your SwifPage

Create your first SwifPage or shorten a URL.

A SwifPage is also known as a “Biolink”. In a nutshell, a SwifPage is a microsite that is part of your profile and contains multiple links to a website, videos, music and allowing curious visitors to find out more. All in one single link.

Shortened is a technique on the World Wide Web in which a Uniform Resource Locator may be made substantially shorter and still direct to the required page. If you copy and paste a long link into the main field on SwifLink, the web page spits out a much shorter link that goes to the same page. Shortened links display better in emails, print material, and other places.
