Shared Short Codes

What are Shared Short Codes?

Shared Short Codes are five or six-digit phone numbers that serve as the foundation of SMS marketing, i.e. our 64600 short code.

A short code sends out all of your messages, and the phone number subscribers respond to.

In other words, with Short Codes you can send out an unlimited number of text messages at once for marketing campaigns, contests, and other kinds of promotions.

They serve as a number that’s easy for customers to remember so they can subscribe to your text marketing groups.

A visual example of how short codes work.

The Power of Shared Short Codes

Shared Short Codes at Mobiniti are iconic. This means people know it’s you when you send them a text without having to add a name to your number. 

After that, your brand expands and becomes a part of the device that your subscribers always carry with them. 

You are reaching a wide array of people at once, in a way 75% of people prefer. Your brand stretches everywhere in the cheapest way that makes your subscribers happy.

Text messages are not intrusive, especially from easily recognizable Shared Short Codes.

What is Long-Code Messaging?

For an even more personal touch, send SMS using a local, standard 10-digit phone number.

Use them against a scaled-down number of subscribers. You get a number for your area code for personalization and are even able to forward call-backs to your business phone.

In addition, these are used by you and only you. To compare, Shared Codes are where other users are also sending messages and receiving them through that number.

Since only you use this code and it’s dedicated to you, there are no restraints on what keyword you use other than that you can only use it once at a time.

Long-Code vs Short Code

Long Code

  • More digits.
  • Make calls.
  • One-on-one texting.
  • No mass texting.

 Sometimes subscribers become regular customers from calling and one-on-one texting, not just texting alone.

Older audiences aren’t as able or used to texting, which makes a Long-Code preferable.

Short Code

  • Fewer digits.
  • No calling.
  • Unlimited mass messaging.
  • Easy to remember.

Long-Codes have more digits in their numbers than Short Codes, so they are harder to remember in place of being more familiar and resembling a person.

 Short Codes are clearly and honestly coming from a company, being easier to remember and recognize compared to most Long-Codes.

Toll-Free Numbers

What are Toll-Free Numbers?

Toll-Free Numbers resemble long codes with their 10-digit length but have a distinct three-digit code in the beginning.

They have the abilities of both Shared Short Codes and Long-Codes. Toll-Free can use SMS, MMS,  mass messaging, but also use Voice Call and 1-on-1 texting functions. 

They can be dialed from landlines without charging the person sending the message or placing the call. 

The Power of Toll-Free Numbers

Toll-Free Numbers are the ultimate phone number to use in your text message marketing.

You can do all the messaging you would from Short Codes and Long-Codes from one number, which when 61% of Millennials think business should use the same number for calling and texting, is incredibly important.

When the upcoming generations, the expanding new audience, prefer one form over the others, you want to use that form.

Having everything come from one place builds and strengthens your brand awareness and loyalty too. It also brings down the cost.

Get all the features of two different numbers in one lower price. You get the best all in one package. Toll-Free Numbers have everything there is to have for text message marketing.
