This shorter link is viewed by most potential customers as a "safe" and "trustworthy". This can be a great advantage for new web page launches that do not have the name/brand recognition.

Although the paid membership with Bitly has a few perks, for most, a free account will take care of all your long-link woes.

The ability to edit/customize your links once created is one of the best (and little known) benefits of having a free Bitly account. Simply copy paste your link and then update the Page Title, Description, Tags and of course your unique Bitlink.

Generic letter/number Bitlinks are not necessarily a deterrent to potential visitors as the Bitly brand is widely known and used.

However, when looking at "bit.ly/my69stang" vs. "bit.ly/s46sweY" it is not hard to see which has a higher probability of getting clicked and (hopefully) purchased. When renaming your Bitly links keep in mind that you must use a unique phrase AND click save to ensure all links save and are named correctly. 

Finally, take advantage of the free Analytics Bitly associates with each link you shorten. Although not the most user friendly in the free version, Bitly can provide valuable information of times, locations and other useful data a business owner or brand manager may need.
