A Short Message Service (SMS) is more commonly referred to as a text message in today’s world whereas a Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) is capable of including photos, videos, or even audio.
Long codes are mainly used for individual person-to-person correspondence which means that when messages are sent out, they go at a slower speed (only 1 per second to be exact). Simply put, long codes are not allowed to be used for marketing activities. Short codes are capable of sending out SMS and MMS messages at a rate of 200 messages per second which allows messages to be sent to many users at once. Additionally, carriers will not filter or suspend your message for heavy traffic because all of our short codes are approved by them for their intended use. Short codes can be used for anything from marketing communications, large one-to-many notification bursts, and high volumes of one-to-one transactional notifications. Overall, short codes are more advantageous to utilize for any business.
Keywords serve as words for you to utilize with a shortcode in order to market our business. For example, “Text joespizza to 55555 for a free beverage with your pizza.”
SMS messages are limited to 160 characters. This includes numbers, spaces, symbols, and punctuation.
You can only upload the mobile phones numbers of customers who have opted-in to your texting platform. It is against the rules to send text messages to mobile numbers unless they have expressly consented to receive text messages for a particular platform.
Customers opt in to your mobile VIP club in response to in-store displays, social media and website postings via opt-in widgets we supply you, print email, email blasts, or by POS mobile kiosk tablets in your store. When you are ready to send out a message to your customers, you will use your own keyword to our shortcode. Customers will automatically receive a message asking them to confirm they want to join your mobile VIP club by replying “Y” for Yes. Once they reply “Y” your automated mobile coupon (as an incentive to join) will be sent directly to their mobile phone to redeem in your store or online if you have e-commerce.
No! There is no set up fee to get started.
