Send & receive SMS – choose the right tools for the job
Use a short code to increase responses to your text advertising or purchase a virtual mobile number to receive replies to your 2 way SMS campaigns. Text Marketer provides two tools which allow you to get the most from incoming SMS.
Both are easy to set up, with no sign up fees, contracts or minimum terms.
Virtual mobile number
Having a txtUs© mobile number for your business allows people to reply to the messages that you send them. Customers can also text you directly.
All incoming texts can be received through your email as well as being stored in your Text Marketer account. This means you can keep track of what has been sent and received – the full thread of the conversation is stored.
Short code SMS
Our Short Code SMS platform allows you to generate text responses from advertising using our 88802 short code.Expect an uplift in response of about 20%.
We offer two main types of keywords. Value keywords start with a number (e.g 2book) and cost just £5 per month. Standard keywords are any word of your choice and cost £25 per month.
Virtual Reply Number
If you have just sent someone a text then it makes perfect sense for them to be able to reply to it.
Most people are unlikely to immediately pick up the phone or go online. So having an incoming SMS reply number is the most logical way of asking people to respond.
Short code SMS
For all direct response advertising campaigns there is a strong argument for including an incoming SMS response option.
This is becoming increasingly more mainstream as companies realise that they can generate a higher response and subsequent sales by encouraging their customers to respond.
