A Highly Effective Campaign Addition

These short and sweet numbers allow you to not only interact with your audience on a platform they are comfortable with, but they also offer a multitude of benefits for both end users and businesses alike.

One of the easiest ways to send SMS at scale, Short Codes offer the possibility to reach huge audiences at low costs, with the potential for excellent results. Add to this the fact that Short Codes can be used country wide and you have a powerful combination to maximize exposure. Billions of text messages are sent and received every day, harnessing this power can elevate your brand and increase customer engagement.

Only 5 or 6 numbers long, Short Codes are easier to remember than a long phone number or a complicated website address and, when used effectively and consistently, can become synonymous with a brand, especially if paired with relevant keywords. Building brand awareness and trust by using a Short Code can make it less of a headache to communicate with customers via text message, if they recognize a number (or Short Code), they are more likely to trust it.

A fast way to generate hot sales leads from genuinely interested customers, you can be confident that someone responding to a Short Code campaign is interested in what is being offered. Short Codes also enable customers to respond to messages 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Even if your offices are closed, automated responses can be set up to confirm that a message has been received and will be actioned.

Offering immediate and accurate insight into the success of a campaign, Short Codes also enable you to collect the telephone numbers of people who have responded and hold it on your database to send permission based marketing in the future.
