A short code is a short number that people can text a keyword to, in order to sign up for tips, enter a contest, donate money and so on. SimplyCast currently only provides short codes for Canada and the United States. Short codes are an immediate, engaging way to connect with your customers. A short code is a perfect addition to your next text message campaign, to make it easy for customers to interact. You can use short codes for nonprofit marketing so supporters can donate money, to engage customers for contests, to let customers vote on an issue, to collect signups for text message promotions or tips, and to let customers text for coupons.
