Using a Short Code for SMS

Short Code SMS. Learn about using short code sms and how sms with short codes can be beneficial.

Using Short Code SMS

In the UK, sending an SMS to a short code usually involves a 5 digit number, such as 88888 or alike.
Most people use short code SMS as a quick and easily memorable number for people to text to from advertising. For example, you could say in your advert, “text INFO to 88802” for more information. This short code is easier to remember than sending an SMS to a full 07xxxxxxxxx number.
At Text Marketer, we offer a full short code SMS service and we are also the cheapest short code supplier, starting at just £5 per month per keyword.

A unique short code SMS service

Text Marketer also has a unique twist to its short code SMS service. You can autorespond not only with a text message but also an email. This is great for sending back information to people from an advert and also capturing their mobile number and email address. It simply works by asking the person to include both the keyword and their email address in the message.
