Before we dive into how this can be done on Safari Portal, let’s have a quick look into what exactly a custom URL is and why is it important?
A custom URL is a shortened, personalized link that can be used to redirect to a specific webpage. For example, instead of having a long URL like "https://www.example.com/pages/itineraries/africa/jeremy-jones-3986498436587436847039," a custom URL can be created, such as "https://www.example.com/jones-safari." This provides a really polished, professional way to share your proposals and makes it easier to remember and share with others. Not only this, but it can also help to increase brand recognition and presence as the customized URL can be a reflection of your company's name or branding.
So enough of the chit-chat. Let’s show you how it’s done!
📌 Note: your custom domain must be configured by your account admin before you can customize your links. Click here to see how to get that set up.
Step 1: When you’re ready to share your lookbook or itinerary with your guest, click Share.
Step 2: At the bottom of the window, where it says Customize Link, you will see that the custom domain is automatically there (for example “itineraries.yourcompanyname.com”). By default the tail after your domain will be auto-generated (for example “…/africa-safari-10985034975.” This is the part that you can customize for each proposal by simply clicking into the gray text and typing in a custom tail instead - ie, “…/jones-safari."
⚠️ Important Tip: Make sure that NO spaces are used. Use a dash or hyphen instead. Your link will NOT be valid if spaces are used.
Step 3: Click Copy Link to copy the itinerary link to your clipboard and share it by simply pasting it into your email, text, or whatsapp (you can use Command + V as a keyboard shortcut to paste), or type in the client's name and email address and optionally customize a message and click Send! The itinerary will be in your client's inbox before you know it!
🌟 Pro Tip: You can share an itinerary with more than one client by clicking the big plus button and adding more names and email addresses to the form.
