Which Short Code and Keyword?
A growing number of advertising and media agencies believe that
starting a mobile relationship using text as the contact medium
can be even more effective than driving traffic online by adding
URLs on billboards. Outdoor advertisers understand that using a
Text Short Code is an extremely attractive way to communicate with
customers while they are waiting for something (a bus, a taxi, a
plane, tube or train) or whilst out shopping. Starting a relationship
with a new customer at the customer’s convenience has led
to the rise in Short Code marketing adoption.
Research suggests that when the mass of users fully embrace the
mobile internet we will probably see Text Short Codes on every piece
of advertising. Everywhere!
