Right way to redirect URL outside site in the Menu?

I have seen several options of how to redirect your Navigation Menu to an external page(site). I tried the one where you put the URL / code in the Navigation Label which didn't work as there is a limitation on the number of characters and I have a long URL so that didn't work.

I ended up using this

Where I put this code onto a new page but the issue is that it flashes the page before it goes to the URL which does not look really professional.

I created the other site with Weebly which allows you to do this pretty simply as an option in navigation. I had to create this site on this product so I need my corporate site on Yola to call it rather seemlessly.

Is there a way for it to not flash the page (which I left blank) or is there a better work around for this.

My website is www.asmallbusinessconsultant.ca. The call above is for Marketing Packages on the Menu.

Hello karen,

One possible solution is to use a URL shortener (eg: https://goo.gl/ or https://bitly.com/) for the destination URL added to the limited space Menu Item. This has worked previously but haven't tried this in more recent updates of the Sitebulder.

Another option is to use an iframe to bring your destination site page into your Yola site.
