In this article, you will learn how to create a Shareable MonsterLink.

Before You Start

Here are some things to know before you begin:

  • A Shareable MonsterLink is a standalone page located on one of our domains that serves as an independent URL that you can share through email, Facebook, or other social media, which allows your subscriber to see a specific OptinMonster campaign.
  • This guide assumes you’ve already created a campaign that you wish to use for a MonsterLink.

Create Shareable MonsterLink

Shareable MonsterLinks are a great way to gain additional leads by sharing your optin campaign on sites that don’t allow you to embed campaigns. Instead, you can share a direct link to your campaign on partner sites, social media accounts and more.

To create a Shareable MonsterLink, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the Publish view within the campaign builder.
    Publish tab in the OptinMonster campiagn builder shows the campaign's current publish status.
  2. Scroll down to the Platform section and click on the Share Link tab.
    You can copy your shareable MonsterLink URL from the Share Link tab in the campaign builder.
  3. Here you’ll find the Shareable MonsterLink URL and additional options for configuring the standalone page for your optin campaign.

Troubleshooting

Can I change my domain where my Shareable MonsterLink shows?

Yes, you can change the domain from the default URL of:

https://app.monstercampaigns.com/c/abc123def456/
to
https://app.optinmonster.com/c/abc123def456/

However, it is not possible to customize the URL of the Shareable MonsterLink at this time.

How can I change what happens after someone submits the optin form in my campaign?

This can be edited in the campaign builder by changing the success action for your optin form.

I’ve added a shortcode to my campaign, why isn’t is showing correctly?

Shortcodes are processed on your live site where your website is hosted. Since Shareable MonsterLinks are located on a different domain, those shortcodes cannot be processed. In this situation, it is best if you connect to one of our native email integrations or add an html form using our Custom HTML integration.
