There are many free services like bitly, tinyurl etc, but relying on free third-party services which may go down or one day just disappear, will leave your links leading to nowhere; also loss of customer credibility, website traffic and your objective of making direct or affiliate sales!
* Install YOURLS (free) on your server, using a suitably short domain name you have registered at Namecheap, GoDaddy etc. and added to your hosting account.
YOURLS not only creates links but tracks all traffic to your created urls.
