Easy to Remember
Owning a 5 or 6 digit number sets your business apart. Short Codes are more distinguishable than conventional numbers, which make them more memorable.
All Short Codes need to go through an extended verification process. This gives your business an extra layer of credibility, and protection for your message recipients.
Designed for Volume
Since Short Codes are verified, carriers are less likely to block or delay messages. These numbers are ideal for urgent alerts and large bulk campaigns.
Contests & Promotions
Making it as easy as possible for recipients to participate will help increase their level of engagement. Short Codes allow your business to do this by simply being easy to remember.
Two Factor Authentication
Short codes are commonly used for 2FA due to their verified nature. Recipients have an added sense of safety and assurance when they receive a message from a Short Code.
Polls & Voting
On competitive shows, major events, or political elections - you’ll often see a prompt to text-in to vote. If you want to get results, less is more when it comes to attracting votes.
Businesses who go through the extended Short Code verification process are rewarded, with a reliable number which they can use for more time-sensitive situations.
