Have you ever sent out a large email blast and then received email replies saying one of your links is broken? YIKES! It happens to the best of us.
Luckily, if you use redirect links in your Eloqua emails, you can repair a link after an email has been sent. Any future clicks on this link will magically work...even emails that have already been delivered! This method is super simple but can be a little scary if you're not comfortable with HTML. Don't let the code scare you, though, especially since we won't be editing it at all.
When you insert hyperlinks into your emails, the Insert as Redirect Link box has to be checked, or this method won't work for you.
Ta da! Even though your email is already sitting in your recipients' inboxes, all future clicks to this link will work - without some of them even knowing it was broken in the first place. Yay!
Many thanks to Tarek in Customer Support for helping me figure this out. This method works for Eloqua 9...not sure about Eloqua 10.
