Short codes are great because they're
memorable. With only 5 numbers to think
about your customers will be able to contact
you quickly and easily - exactly what any
marketing campaign needs.
If you want to keep costs down for your customers, you should use a shared SMS short code . Just pick a keyword that suits your business such as "for more information text INFO to 60XXX” and you're good to go.
For more personalised codes you'll need to ask for a dedicated SMS short code. Your business will be the only one with this code, so you can be more creative with the keywords you use.
Stay on top in customer minds
Remembering a 5-digit number is something most people can manage. Once they've seen your campaign they'll know how to get in touch, even if they're not in a position to get their phone out and text you immediately. Make it easy to contact you, and customers are far more likely to do so.
Choose a great keyword for maximum impact
If you're using a dedicated short code, you can choose just about any keywords you like, so you have plenty of scope for making them relevant to your business or the particular campaign you're working on. Pick something funny, wacky or clever, and grab your customers attention for all the right reasons.
Set up automatic responses
Don't have time to reply to everyone individually? It's important to acknowledge that people have taken time to get in touch, so you can set up auto responses to your campaigns based on your keywords. We'll send your chosen SMS response every time someone texts your short code with the keyword you've assigned.
We've got a feature-packed service that makes it easy for you to grow your business using SMS marketing. We offer MMS messaging, link shortening, SMS short codes and an inbound long number reply service, all of which are available through our easy-to-use messaging dashboard.

Reach real-time data
Our campaign reports are constantly updating to make sure that you get real-time results for each campaign you send. You'll be able to see at a glance which of your campaigns are most successful, and adjust your future campaigns to suit.
You'll get a delivery report for every online message you send, plus you can view any replies by mobile number, keyword or campaign. Want to target customers who responded to a previous campaign? You can customise a list based on your delivery reports and replies.
Any customer that responds to a message with 'STOP' will be automatically added to a blacklist and will not be sent any further messages. You don't need to worry about removing them from your list because we've already taken care of it.
