Premuim Rate SMS-Shortcode

Want to run a campaign and generate additional revenue? A Shortcode campaign could be the best option for you!

Shortcode campaigns are a great way to create brand awareness, build a database, and generate revenue all in one. The way Shortcode works is that a unique five-digit number is generated for your company. Users are then charged per SMS they send to this number, ranging from R0.86 to R30 per SMS. At the end of the day, you have an improved database of users who are open to interacting with your business.

If you are overwhelmed with enquires, Shortcode can be a convenient way for consumers to learn more about your business or product. Decide on certain keywords that users can SMS to your Shortcode and in return they can receive the relevant information including pricing and specifications.

How it works

A dedicated Shortcode belongs to one person or business, with all SMS’s allocated to that account regardless of the actual text.
