If your’e a regular LinkTrack user you probably noticed that we installed a new account system over the weekend. This came mostly from the billion or so requests we received to make our link creation/link tracking system more user friendly and easier to organize. There were also a few requests from the owners that we also do something to cover the expenses we’re racking up.
The solution was simple – we instituted a user account system where you can make links, track them, and keep them organized under an account name. Same as always, but this way the links are tied to an account so you have more control over them and can make changes if you want.
We also added a few ‘premium’ features and gave people the option to upgrade their accounts. Premium features are things like password protection on your links, email alerts, set your links to expire at a certain time or not at all, turn them on and off, download account data, etc.
Lastly, we re-organized some of the data to make things easier to read, added some flashy graphs and tried to improve the look and feel without making it too cumbersome.
The result is something that we’re pretty proud of. We’ve got a nice free system for people to use with some features that aren’t offered anywhere else and our users are already taking advantage of the paid service. I asked a few of them and got a 50/50 mix of those who just want to support the service, and those who want to use the features which I think is awesome.
