Shared SMS Short Codes

Shared SMS Short Codes

In order to start any long term text message marketing campaign, one of the first thing you’ll need is a SHORT CODE. The short code must be a dedicated to achieve maximum performance. The years of shared short codes are long gone. Carriers do not allow SMS traffic on shared short codes any longer.

Now, brands need dedicated short codes. The advantages of a short code are fast speed, better delivery rates, shorter number to remember. Dedicated short codes are a great option for any brands. Our team always advise our clients to provision a dedicated short code. Then, we can reach speeds of up to 1000 SMS per second. Delivery rates will be higher too.

After you sign up with an account with ProTexting, you will work with our team of experts to provision your short code. Talk to our team and we’ll get you started. No worries, we will do all the work and walk you through the process. You will just need to provide company details and some paperwork if needed.

With the short code ready and live in your account, you will need to reserve a SMS Keyword. SMS Keyword is a unique word that will identify your campaign. The best keyword would be your business name, or anything that identifies your brand. Once you have reserved your keyword, your customers or subscribers will be able to send an SMS to your short code number from their mobile phone, and join your text messaging list. Example: "Text JOIN to 41242" to join our list for special offers". From this point on, you will be able to build your leads and customer data, by asking your current or potential clients to text in your keyword for more info, promotional offers, etc. And most important, send fast and reliable text messages via your dedicated short code.

Creating an account with ProTexting and using one of our TFN (Toll-Free) numbers, will give you the advantage to immediately set up your mobile marketing campaigns and engage your clients. We provide TFNs to all of our accounts, instantly when you open the account. You can use the TFN until your short code is live across all carriers. Once it is live, we will host it on our messaging infrastructure and you can use the ProTexting dashboard, API, or integrations. Contact our team today to get started.
