A Better Simple URLs Alternative

We were big fans of this plugin for one reason: it was simple. But because of its simplicity, it lacks features that affiliate marketers need and want.

We were big fans of the Simple URLs plugin for one reason: it was simple. It felt like a very light version of Pretty Links, but it was easier to add affiliate links to posts. This is why we chose it over Pretty Links.

But because of its simplicity, it lacks a lot of features that affiliate marketers need and want. It’s just a simple link cloaking plugin with a very basic click tracking feature.

Affiliate marketers need advanced click tracking, link counts, more advanced fields, and control over their affiliate links. This is what Lasso does. It’s built specifically for affiliate marketers who need total control, plus the ability to manage and customize their links from one place rather than manually in each post.
