SMS Short Codes
Send SMS engagement, marketing and communication messages to your audience, fans and community with dedicated short codes.
What is a Short Code?
A short code is a 5 or 6 digit phone number that is used by businesses, organizations, and government agencies to send regular text and MMS (picture) messages. These messages can be used for marketing, communications, alerts, notifications and more.
These numbers can only be used to send and receive text messages. They do not have a voice channel to transmit calls.
The Different Types of Short Codes
There are two different types of short codes used for SMS engagement, random and vanity. They’re the exact same in terms of their functionality and capabilities. It all comes down to the number and associated costs.
Random Short Codes
Random codes are assigned from a pool. They may the best option if you are looking to keep the cost down and can wait a month or so for carrier approval.
