Short Code Marketing: Why 2 Codes Are Better Than 1

Shared Short Code Marketing
People often wonder whether they should get a dedicated or a shared short code for their promotions. There are pros and cons to both.
Shared short codes are the fastest way to get your promotion up and running within 10 seconds. There are very little additional costs involved, other than the fee per message. That makes the shared short code ideal for beginners. On the downside, you are sharing a code, so you could run into trouble if someone else on your code is spamming people — causing an outage or causing people to unsubscribe from the list. To combat this, Avid Mobile offers every client not ONE short code — but TWO! So you will never have to worry about downtime!
Dedicated Short Code Marketing
Dedicated short codes are good for large national brands. Some brands personalize their codes with numbers that are easy-to-remember — like Pepsi (73775) or Palms Hotel in Las Vegas (95959). The user experience is also a bit better, since people can just text one keyword in directly, rather than texting a keyword and an action word. On the downside, dedicated short codes can be expensive. You have to pay USShortcodes.com, plus you’ll have to pay monthly fees to maintain and host the code. It usually takes about 10 weeks to get approved and you’ll need to pay a one-time set-up fee as well. Avid Mobile helps you reserve a keyword and delve into AvidMobile short code marketing right away, without all this waiting around.
