Add an external link to my dropbox to email campaigns

Recommended Posts

We have a general contractor construction company and it would be really great if we could use email campaigns and external links to help us with the project bidding process with our subcontractors.

More specifically, I'm looking for a way for subcontractors to click a button on the email campaign that is linked to a specific folder in my dropbox to see project details. I thought inserting the dropbox link straight into the button url field on the email campaign editor would work, but when I test it, it says "invalid link, the page you're looking for doesn't exist".

After some research on how to troubleshoot this it looks like I may have to manipulate my DNS records (I use godaddy for reference) which I would prefer to avoid if possible. I also tried adding the link in the site page menu but I don't know how to get my email campaign to link to that, much less access/go to that page after I add it as a page. 

Since I plan to use this to bid all our future projects, I need an easy, simple, and quick way to be able to redirect people to my various dropbox folders. Aka, I cant be updating DNS records every time I have a new project. 

Does anyone know if the DNS mapping is a one time change, or if I have to add a new DNS record every time I want to send out a new project to my subcontractors?

Please let me know what the easiest way to achieve this is. Thanks to everyone's help in advance!
