Short Codes are memorable 5-digit numbers like 46873 that are used in advertising campaigns, product packaging and any other applications to allow your customers and clients to easily contact you.
Advantages of Short Codes
Short Codes allows you to easily receive leads from potential customer or users by giving them a short and memorable number to message to.
Five-digit Short Codes or MSISDN numbers are billed at a pre-determined, advertised, and higher than normal rate. Network operators have introduced a series of Short Codes and price ranges to suit any budget.
The revenue generated by using a premium rated SMS line is shared between the Short Codes owner, the mobile operator, and ContactNow. The revenue share depends on the price band and the network.
Custom campaigns can be developed to cater for specific requirements, and users can alter:
- The response sent
- If the incoming SMS should be forwarded to email or a mobile number
