A Hassle-Free Experience

Easy to set up and send, text messages are not only easy on your customers, but you too.

Collecting group message subscribers

The easiest way to increase engagement or collect subscribers via your messages, is using keywords and short codes. 

A keyword is what the crux of your message would be and a short code is what the client would use to reach out to you. For example, in “Message ‘TRAVEL’ to 353535 to view your offer code”, ‘TRAVEL’ is your keyword and ‘353535’ your short code. 

When reaching different groups, you have the additional benefit of using different keywords for different audiences keeping in mind what is most relevant to them.
