How do long-code SMS services work?

Lead Generation! Voting!

Long Code/Virtual Number refers to virtual 10 digit number which can be used to receive SMS from other mobile numbers of all over the world. Long Code are just like your mobile phone number.

This allows people to reply of your Bulk SMS campaigns that you send them by obtaining 2-way SMS. They do not need to start their text with a keyword, so no matter what they send, their entire text is captured. Long codes can also texted directly so customers might be able to text you with specific query for example

Shared Long Code:

Shared Long Code is one shared by more than one company. This means there are multiple applications or services running on it which are designated by keywords.

If you avail this service, you will get one number which is shared by many other business people. But for your need it is differ with the business keywords of your product or service.

For Example: Let say number is 9664653344. So this number is already shared by many people with their respective keywords. Now, let say my business is Bulk SMS. Then I will prepare the content of promotion as given below:

“Hello, Happy New Year!! On occasion of these happy moments, SMSGATEWAYHUB provides you great discounts on BULK SMS Services to promote your Business & Services. For Free Demo Trial Type SMSHUB and send it to 9664653344.”

So whoever the customer type the keyword and send SMS to above number, then automatically we will get details of the prospect to our server. After that we can interact with the prospect to serve their needs.

This is the basic example to show how the shared short code works. Apart from this many business people of all major industries are using these services for promotions and marketing.

SMS Marketing: What’s Important For Businesses

Mobile marketing provides allows businesses to engage customers in instant two-way communication. Unfortunately however, much of the advice given to businesses focuses only on the technology – SMS short-code,  long-code, SMS vendors, aggregators… as a business owner it can be enough to make your head spin.

When setting up a campaign, the real questions that need asking are how will the text message campaign will:

Attract new customers
Retain existing customers longer
Encourage existing customers to buy more? (Or more often.)
Then equally importantly:

What value will the text message campaign provide to end users?

Smsgatewayhub Mobile marketing is unique as a medium, in that it is completely opt in. Customers have to opt in and want to receive text messages from you, and customer privacy is paramount. With good reason too – most of us keep our phones on us at all times, not even turning them on when we go to bed!

As customers we don’t want to receive more marketing, but we do want to receive relevant offers that we are interested in and have opted in to receive.

The easiest and most frequent use of text messaging campaigns by businesses is mobile coupons. Financial incentives can be a great way to attract customers, especially if your business experiences quiet periods (think cheap lunchtime deals at a restaurant).

While we are big fans of mobile coupling, my goal today is to get you thinking beyond financial incentives. This is because they:

Teach customers to expect a discount (and devalue your products and services in the process)
Raise your variable costs, as you have to produce more to make the same level of profit
Other uses could be:

Service reminders. (When did you last have your oil changed? Would you like to renew your warranty? How about home insurance? Has your product been dispatched?)
Appointment reminders. For businesses that work on an appointment basis (e.g. dentists), the biggest cost of business is no-shows, as you cannot get the time back. Use SMS to send appointment reminders to give customers the chance to cancel if they cannot attend.
Instead of discounting, offer a premium SMS group (e.g. fast club entry), free upgrades, special access.
Mobile coupling is a great tool for businesses small and large, but for long term success every offer you send should not be a discount. Having a customer’s permission to send them text messages is extremely valuable, however you need to be creative to in thinking of different ways your text message campaigns can provide value to your customers

Mobile Marketing Guide: SMS Shortcodes or SMS Longcodes

One of the strengths of mobile marketing is that it allows you to measure the effectiveness of all your existing offline marketing; for example newspaper ads, yellow pages ads, directory listings and magazine ads. The best way of doing this is to add a mobile ‘call to action’ to your advertising.

Despite the media frenzy surrounding QR codes, SMS short and long-codes remain the best way of achieving this, because every phone can receive and send SMS text messages. With smartphone adoption  only at around one third, why eliminate two-thirds of your potential responses?

What’s an SMS Shortcode?

An SMS Shortcode is essentially a five digit number on which you can set up a keyword. When somebody sends a text containing your keyword to the five digit number, a response is triggered – for example a mobile coupon can be sent back.

Having a Shortcode then as part of your call to action then could be ‘Text DEAL to 81234 for 20% off your next [haircut/sandwich/food bill]”. You can then monitor how many people text DEAL to 81234, so you now know how effective your offline advertising truly is. To see an example of a Shortcode in action, text 10TIPS to 88802 .

Bonus tip: Set up a different keywords for each type of offline advertising, so you can monitor what media is driving the responses.

What’s an SMS Long code?

An SMS Long code works in a similar way to a Shortcode, only (as the name suggests) a Long code is a full 10 digit number that your customers can text, but not ring. The advantage of using a Long code is that the Long code is unique to your business (only you use it), meaning you can set-up as many different keywords as you like for no additional cost.

Short codes on the other hand are provisioned carrier by carrier, making it very expensive to operate your own Shortcode  For smaller businesses, it is more common to rent a keyword on a Shortcode that already exists. This means you pay per keyword , and if another business is already using a term you cannot have it. This makes popular terms such as FREE or SALE difficult to get.

Which to choose?

Short codes are most effective when the person responding does not have a lot of time to remember or write down your number. For radio or TV ads, this is really the only option. Customers are slowly becoming more familiar with responding to Short codes, as programmes such as ‘X Factor’ now take the majority of votes by text.

Additionally, while Long codes can handle around 1000 messsages per hour, Short codes can handle 1000 messages per minute! If you are anticipating a big spike in response, go for a Shortcode.

For an SME on a tight marketing budget, Long codes can be excellent value of money, particularly if you want to set up a large number of keywords.

Finally whether you decide to use short or long codes, remember that the success of the campaign will be determined by the offer you are making. Remember, the quantity (and relevancy) of the offer are always more important than the technology! Think about the things your customers are most likely to respond to, and you response rates will increase regardless of the length of the number.
