What is the standard SMS length?

SMS marketing is by far one of the best tools to add to your campaigns, but how can you use this tool to its full potential? To run an effective SMS marketing campaign, you need to phrase words properly. However, an obstacle most businesses face is saying the right things in the low character limit of regular texts. Most text messaging services have a limit of 160 characters. 

One can send a message within that limit , but that can make the message a little confusing. You can find yourself in a difficult situation while structuring their text into a greeting, the crux of the message and the necessary call to action.

Sending long text messages with Texting Base

With Texting Base, you can say the right words in the perfect manner with our long text messages feature. Doing this is simple. 

Once you have made your Texting Base account, login into the dashboard. Compose your message and then select the recipient or list of recipients from your database. Finally, hit send and we'll send your message if it's within our high character limit.

What is the character limit for long text messages?

With Texting Base, you get to send long text messages that are up to 300 characters (twice as much as regular text messages). You can also add media and attach images, videos or PDFs with up to 1,500 characters. Now that is one good deal!

With Texting Base you can also send links and unicode symbols, that can alone take up to 70 characters. Doing this in the standard 160 characters can be a task and might restrict creativity. Additionally, when a short text message exceeds the character limit, the message goes as multiple messages. 

Long text messages give you an upper hand over competition as they relieve you of the pressure of having to phrase your message correctly.
