As for today, it seems to be almost impossible for anyone in this world to not having a twitter account. At the very least, you’d have an account even though you aren’t that active through twitter. Twitter has been a best place to post updates.

5 Reasons To Use URL Shortener

4 comments


ombaQ is a free app that will help you managing your social media. As we all already know, ombaQ recently released a new feature on our app. This new feature allow you to shorten your URL.

Loyal user of ombaQ had probably know that we already used a goo.gl shortener before. However, with our newly released feature, the link shortener has now stylized into obq.li. It has several benefits as your link shortener now could be tracked by our ombaQ analyzer. Read more about our URL shortener here.

However, it seems that not everyone are aware on the use of URL shortener. We probably see social media like twitter or facebook, sometimes, automatically shorten our link. But, why do they did so? Why they feel that shorten the URL which we shared is necessary? What is the benefit?
Here, we ombaQ will tell you the reason why:



1.       Conquering the characters limit on social media
Some social media, as we know it, has limit on how much characters you can post. Some people find it effective. Some find it challenging. But, some also find it annoyingly disturbing. Sometimes, those social media feels like, it doesn’t allow us to post more information. Especially, when we have to put a link on them. Worry not! Just use URL shortener! Just copy the link you wanted to share, pasted it on the link shortener service, and, VIOLA! Your link isn’t passing the characters limit anymore.

2.       It’s easier to remember your link
Sometimes, we were just on the rush, that we have to check on website real quick! But what if the link is too long that you couldn’t remember the whole URL? What was it... could it be... facebit.com? Was it facebug.com? With URL shortener, you could shorten and stylized your link so it’s easier to remember. Some URL shortener even provide you with service to stylized the link on your own. So, you can name the link however you like, make it much easier to remember.



3.       You can track your shortened link
Link shortener could sometimes give you the luxury to track your link traffic. With that, you could see how much people clicked on your link. This is especially could be done with our link shortener feature! By using our link shortener, you could track and analyze your link via our Content Insights feature. Very useful, right?

4.       Having your post more manageable
Admit it, we sometimes find it disturbing when people have a neatly written post, only to be messed by a very long and complicated URL. So how to make it more “pretty”? Easy, just use link shortener. Isn’t your post will be tidier if you use obq.li rather than http://www.twitter.com/ ?

5.       Easily shares link to everywhere
To compile all the benefits of using link shortener, by having it easy to remember, will help you conquer against characters limit, etc. Put it short, isn’t it much easier to share your link everywhere? Say it, your friends in badly need of the name of the website that they visited last week? But you couldn’t remember what’s the whole URL? Costumer wanted to know your website? But, you were hit by characters limit? Like we’ve said before, just use the whole benefit on link shortener. Now, you shouldn’t have to remembering all the long URLs anymore!

We actually could write hundreds more of the benefit on using URL shortener. But, well, that could only be found out by trying it yourself, right?


Don’t forget, we here at ombaQ also have our own link shortener. By using it, you’ll be able to feel all the benefits on using URL shortener PLUS more benefit by using ombaQ. What are you waiting for? Use ombaQ to ease your daily pain!

The Importance of Pictures on Your Social Media Branding

2 comments



ombaQ recently released a mobile app which allow you to connect ombaQ to instagram. With the ombaQ newly released mobile app, you’re now able to post, schedule, and analyze your instagram content through ombaQ’s app.

Instagram is one of social media that support posting pictures to promote your existence. Human live, as we know, are mostly relying on visuals. Our eyes is the first thing to catch the most interesting things and proceed it to our brain. Which means, visual is the most important aspect on our live. That explained easily why most social media now have a feature for the users to post picture.


There are no different for those who run online shop. They will truly understand how important it is the role of pictures that we posted on our online business’ account. If the customer aren’t buying the product yet, what matter is for the product to catch their eyes first. After that, the possibility of your business – the one account with the cute/cool pictures on it – being told from one mouth to one mouth, will increase. Thus will gained more costumer for you. From there on, is how our business will run for long time.

So, how is it to choose pictures for our product? Why using pictures is very important? What should we do?

Don’t worry, folks! Here, ombaQ, will help you ease your problem, as always!

First, what matter the most is, indeed, choose picture that is relevant to your product. This is the most obvious things, as you won’t be posting pictures that doesn’t have connection to what you sell. Of course, you won’t be selling clothes only to post puppy pictures on your social media. Well, that might attract people. As well as you will confuse them. Of course, except, if you are selling puppy’s clothes. So, if you sell food, for example, post a neatly arranged food picture to your social media account.


 Second, grab  their attention by posting a very attractive pictures. This doesn’t mean that you have to “lie” with your picture. The easiest things to do is to wholeheartedly put your effort toward choosing the first few pictures that you’re gonna post. Have a team of talented photograph and picture editor. Or study a bit of hack on how to take a nice picture for your business will do the job.

Third, use unique formatting when posting your pictures. It could be anything. At Instagram, you could probably post a series of same themed pictures for a 3x3 instagram block. At twitter, you could posted your pictures along with the information inside your picture. So, user will be prompted to open your picture – and your website – to see your product. At facebook, you could probably tease the costumer by posting several pictures to prompt them to open the photo album.

Lastly, is to put yourself on your costumer eyes. If you are a costumer, and you were to see your online shop account, what kind of pictures you want to see? What pictures that will make you wanted to check on your online shop, see it again the next day, and spread it to your friends? By seeing it through your costumer eyes, you might be able to find what kind of picture you should post.

If you are ombaQ user, you will already know that we have a feature that will help you on this. Content insights and Account insights will help you analyze your content and see which post attract the most costumer. All you have to do left is to post a similar themed picture for the next picture. Use this ombaQ feature to fully benefited you, in a right way!

Don’t forget to be careful of the pictures that you post! Be aware of the copyright! Especially if you’re not using a picture that you took by yourself. There are, though, several websites which shares their photo stock for free, with no need of being copyrighted. Put a little bit of extra effort to search those website for free photo stock that you need.

Also, please look forward on our upcoming new “publishing box”! Sounds exciting?

Problem like this usually happened on social media platform that has character or words limit on it. One of the infamous social media with character limit is twitter.

Twitter only allowed you to post 140 character each tweet. Though it is the most effective way for marketing and promoting your brand, which is posting no longer than 140 character, but it’s still quite frustrating for most people. The frustrating thing is not that you can’t type anymore words, but, the fact that there are no room left for placing the link to your website/picture/blog!

Worry no more! We, ombaQ, here always have the solution to your problem!

Worry about your character limit no more. Because we’d like to introduce to you, our world renowned Link Shortener! With a very stylized link’s style, obq.li !


Okay, that sounds useful, but, how to use it?

Since this is ombaQ’s feature we’re talking about, using our Link Shortener is as easy as flipping the palm of your hand. We only have to taught you once, and you will master it in no time! So let’s get into the shortening link business:
  1. As usual, all you need to do first is preparing the content of your brand, the caption, the picture, etc. Do it all at the dialog’s main textarea.
  2. After you done doing so, add the link by typing it or pasting it directly in the textarea.
