SMS SHORT CODE FEATURES

A short code, or SMS short code, is a four-, five- or six-digit telephone number, depending on where you are, that’s used only for texting. 

In most cases, businesses use short codes to send or receive one-way communications (such as marketing messages, two-factor authentication and alerts) to reach a high-volume of customers.

WHAT IS A SHORT CODE?

A consumer may text a short-code to receive information about a product or service, perhaps in response to your marketing or promotional campaign. 

Or they could enter a competition or program, request support services, or even partake in a survey or poll by using a unique keyword.

Keywords are commonly associated with an SMS short code, and they can be used a few different ways. Keywords can allow customers to opt-in to text messaging from a business, where the customer will text a keyword to an advertised short code number. This is common for text message promotions or when subscribing to a text marketing list. 

For example, a business may display an advertisement like the following: Text YES to 42020 to get a free eye test, or a discount on your next order! Keywords can also be used for contests in TV or radio. A listener or viewer can text a keyword to an advertised short code number to take a poll or cast a vote, for example: To vote for Clio, text CLIO to 35050. Lastly, keywords can offer consumers a self-guided tool to answer common questions or to gather information. The business sets up a pre-written response (also known as an auto-reply text) that triggers when a specific keyword is texted to the SMS short code. For example: Text the word CALL to 37777 if you would like us to call you. Just follow the instructions when prompted and we’ll call you soonest!
