WHAMmobile can obtain, lease, and manage your short code solution.
Short Code – also known as a short number, or unique telephone numbers, which can also be used to address SMS “text messages” from mobile phones.
Obtaining a dedicated SMS code is a lengthy, technically intensive, expensive, and time consuming process. WHAMmobile’s Short Code Services eliminate these barriers to entry by allowing you to run a campaign on one of WHAMmobile’s pre-approved short codes quickly and affordably.
The cost and expense of provisioning a dedicated Short Code with all major carriers typically runs 3 to 6 months and will commit you to spending over $10,000 for at least 1 year. And there are no guarantees you’ll end up with a good code for all that trouble. Most of the good, easy-to-remember codes are already taken and new dedicated code clients may get stuck with something that is hard for consumers to remember. Imagine the difference between glancing at an ad with a call to action such as “Text _____ to 289174″ vs “Text _____ to 444888″. Which one is the consumer going to remember 5 minutes later? WHAMmobile has invested significantly in provisioning 2 outstanding easy-to-remember codes, 555999 and 444888. Many of our clients choose us for just this reason. ¬†WHAMmobile also allows you to run campaigns in the U.S. and Canada without switching SMS codes, a unique trait in the industry.
