Hey and welcome to your new VASTCLICKS Dashboard.

Creating links in VASTCLICKS is a simple as:

  1. Find an article to share and copy the URL.
  2. Go to Links section on the sidebar and choose either an Overlay or Magnet link.
  3. Click the + icon to create a new link, paste the URL for your article and hit Save.
  4. If you selected an Overlay link you will need to choose which CTAs you want to display.
  5. Then share your new link with the world. 

However, to get of to the best start with VASTCLICKS there are a couple of things we recommend you do first.

Setup Your CTAs

Create your CTAs so they are ready to add when you want to use Overlay links to share your content. - Learn More

Why Is This Important?

Your Brand

Retargeting is one of the most successful and cost effective ways to convert your customers to buyers or into a lead. Although a percentage of visitors that click to read the content you are sharing, will click through on your CTA. A large percentage of them will not be ready to take action on your offer or message. By using retargeting you can re-engage with everyone clicked your link across a wide range of social ad networks, providing you add your retargeting pixels or tracking code.

Custom Domains

By adding a custom domain that incorporates your name, you are not only reinforcing brand awareness but increasing your brand recognition. 

For example: http://vastclicks.com/8eGg could become http://vstclk.co/8eGg 

Now all the links you now create and share will contain your custom domain name. 

The other big feature that is unlocked by adding a custom domain, is custom end points. The next time you create or edit an Overlay link, you have the option to personalize the 4 randomly generated characters to anything you wish. 

For example: /8eGg could become /best-marketing-tools

Note: After the 14 day trial this is a Pro plan and above only feature


The first thing you need to do after creating your first Overlay link is add a CTA or up to 3 if you want to split test them. If you have not created any CTAs yet you will need leave your link, go create your CTAs, then return to the link to add them. 

In our experience this is just a simpler and more efficient process, which allows you to focus on creating your first links and sharing them with your audience.

Is It Essencial?

No it's not! If you do not yet use retargeting and are happy with VASTCLICKS default URL for sharing your content. You can skip setting up your brand and jump straight to creating your first CTAs and then create your first Overlay links.
