BGP Routing Control

Hi guys, we are looking at implementing BGP Routing on a new setup. We will be multihomed over 2 links, one is unmetered, the other is metered as far as data, and associated costs for data goes. My question is, in BGP routing, can we control which link traffic will reach us on, or is it always a case of shortest path/cost "TO" our network from remote locations?

Ideally we would like to have all traffic down our unmetered link as this is the most cost effective, and then use the metered link as a failover if the primary fails.
