Running a URL override campaign

A  URL Override campaign produces a single link or Embed Code, for the selected media templates. This link can be overridden to match the personalized variables used on the email marketing or chat platform of your choosing.

When this link is parsed through your contact list on the platform, a personalized image or video link is generated for your contacts in real-time. 

Within Campaigns start by clicking on Create a New Campaign.


The Campaign process is divided into 2 tabs: Configure & Activate.

Let’s start by configuring the campaign.
