What is the LinkedIn Custom Domain Add-on?
When using the LinkedIn Prospect Tracker, you’ve probably noticed that when you send links in your messages, they look like this:
That’s because in order to identify the people who click that link, we have to run them by our CANDDi domain first.
The LinkedIn Custom Domain Add-on allows you to use a domain of your choosing for these links instead.
What’s the benefit of using my own domain?
Prospects are often a little wary of clicking links with unexpected domains.
When, for example, you message them as a representative of X Company, and you then link them to the canddi.to domain, they may decide not to click through. That’s why using your own, custom domain for these links is so important… It helps create more trustworthy outreach and can have a real impact on your clickthrough rates.
How do I get started with the Add-on?
To begin using your own domain for the LinkedIn Prospect Tracker, head into your CANDDi dashboard.
- Navigate to the ‘Add-ons’ section
- Look for the LinkedIn Custom Domain Add-On
- Click ‘Configure’
- Click ‘Buy Now’
Access to this functionality will add £50/month to your CANDDi subscription, and can be turned off any time in the Add-ons menu. Or, if you’d like to save some money, talk to us about access to the LinkedIn Custom Add-on for £500/year!
With the LinkedIn Custom Domain Add-on active, you have two options about how to proceed:
Buy a brand new domain through CANDDi
This is the simplest option; we’ll purchase a new domain on your behalf, through which we can direct traffic to identify link-clickers.
We recommend choosing a domain name that’s linked to your brand. For example, if your brand’s main domain is canddi.com, you’ll want to opt for something like getcanddi.com.
Bring your own subdomain
This option requires you to be able to set your own DNS, as you’ll be setting up a sub-domain of the one you currently use. For example, if your brand’s main domain is canddi.com, the subdomain will look something like: link.canddi.com
Of course, we’ll be with you every step of the way to ensure your new domain is both appropriate to your existing brand, and fully functional with your LinkedIn Prospect Tracker outreach.
