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.

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.
