Shared SMS Short Codes

Shared SMS Short Codes

In order to start any mobile marketing campaign, the first thing you’ll need is a SHORT CODE. The short code can be shared or dedicated. The advantages of a shared short code are an instant access and it is a more affordable option. Dedicated short codes are a great option for enterprise clients and for a long term SMS campaigns, however they are expensive and wait time for provisioning is anywhere from 2 to 6 months.

After you sign up with an account with ProTexting, you will be immediately assigned one of our shared short codes. With the short code ready 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 shared 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.

Creating an account with ProTexting and using one of our shared short codes, will give you the advantage to immediately set up your mobile marketing campaigns and engage your clients. This way you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on purchasing a dedicated short code, neither you have to wait for a long period of time for approval (approximately between 2 and 6 months), and you don’t have to spend more money to develop the platform and the technology. Basically everything is done for you and you have the opportunity to take advantage of it for a small monthly fee.
