We know that short codes can be a bit of a mind boggle to people who have never used or come across them before. But we can assure you that short codes can really give your business the boost that you need. There are so many different ways that you can use short codes, from competitions to advertising response for your company.
One of the main uses for short codes are competitions. TV shows such as X Factor and Britains Got Talent will use short codes for you to text or ring in. This could be to vote for your favourite contestant on the show. You will be asked to start your message with a keyword like ‘vote’ then the name of the contestant you are voting for.
