SMS Competitions

Text to Win Competitions and Voting

Text to Win competitions and SMS voting has been a regular feature for TV and radio stations for a few years now. Viewers and listeners are able to influence the outcome of shows, participate in surveys and enter prize draws.

Audience participation is now an integral part of many shows and sporting broadcasts. Increasingly organisations and agencies are complementing marketing efforts with mobile promotions. These promotions use what are called Short Codes. Customers dial a five digit short code and key in a short text message relating to the promotion.

The mobile phone is the latest tool for marketers seeking to win over consumers ...

Text the word WINNER to 81400 (standard text charge applies)

How much does the service cost?

We charge a small set up fee for your short code each time you are running a new promotion; thereafter it’s only your monthly rental (plus any standard rate text messages you choose to send). Set up is fast, it’s simple to use and all data is secure. There are no lengthy contracts to commit to and any premium rate revenue generated is paid to you each month.

SMSshortcodes.co.uk arranged our on-pack ‘Text-to-Win’ promotion throughout Ireland. The marketing support and advice that we received was refreshingly brilliant!”

The SMS voting and competition service provides you with secure real-time results delivered either online, by email or forwarded to your own application.

Without the support and advice of smsshortcodes.co.uk, the process would have failed in the hectic backstage environment,” says Nigel Godfrey, the Director of Blue Box Entertainment – creators of Edinburgh Festival hit show, EuroBeat “I think the lateral thinking involved in understanding our requirement, and tailoring a solution in such a short space of time was where they added real value.”

If you are planning to charge customers for entering your SMS competition or vote you will need to use a Premium Rate SMS code.

With premium SMS a cost is charged to the mobile phone user, with a proportion of the charge being received back by you as the service provider, as an out-payment.
Contact us for our latest and highest UK premium rate SMS out-payments.

Before running a premium SMS service in the UK, the following guidelines and code of practice needs to be understood and implemented. Go to the PhonepayPlus website for full details.
