What are SMS shortcodes?

Use of bulk SMS is relatively a new concept in business marketing, and various business professionals are using it as a cost-effective and time-saving mode of engaging and interacting with consumers. To achieve success in using bulk SMS for marketing, SMS shortcodes play a crucial role.

Shortcodes are basically five to six digit numbers that are used in place of a phone number for sending SMS. Being shorter than a general phone number, SMS shortcodes are easy to register in the minds of the customers. Receivers can revert to the SMS sent using the unique shortcodes and thus, begin the much-desired interaction with your brand.
