The marketing model has changed during the last decade and businesses are now offering the opportunity to their customers to promote them. URL shortening websites are also not behind this trend and have started offering incentives to its users. Well, there are many places where it is not convenient to post a very long URL or you do not want to reveal the web address. One such example is a micro blogging website like Twitter. If you have only 140 characters to post, you would not like the link to consume all the space. These URL shortening websites ask you for the long URL and give you a short URL which would take the user to the same page.
Using any of the below services will not only solve your purpose of URL shortening, but also give you some incentive when the URL is clicked or viewed.
Following are the 5 best websites that pay you for shortening your links through them.
USP: High paying potential
How it works: You go to the site, enter your long URL and get a short URL. Then you go and paste the URL wherever you want. When a user clicks on the shortened URL, he sees a pop-up ad. Now the user may either click on the ad or just view it. In both the cases, you get paid.
Cost per 1000 impressions is $2
Minimum Payout: $5

The user who clicks on your URL does not even have to watch the ad completely. He has the option to click on ‘skip ad’ link and go to the link posted by you after 5 seconds. The cost of every impression and click varies from country to country.

Payment Mode: Check or Paypal
USP: Multiple chances to earn
How it works: LinkBee is basically a bookmarking site that pays you for bookmarking your favorite links. It offers you two options for displaying the ad.
