Designing a Successful Text to Win Promotion

Competitions are a great way to build your SMS opt-in list. SMS short codes make this easy. They’re half the length of normal phone numbers, making them fast, convenient, and easy to remember.

Smart marketers typically pair short codes with keywords to create highly effective, automated campaigns.


Your billboard says:

“Text THIRSTY to 12345 to win a free soda today.”

The customer texts the keyword “THIRSTY” to the short code 12345.

Your autoresponder sends a coupon back to the customer with an opt-in for further promotions:

“Show this text at the store to get your free soda. Text JOIN to continue receiving exclusive offers and information.”

The customer sends the keyword “JOIN” back to your short code.

Your autoresponder replies with a confirmation and opt-out information:

“You are now signed up to receive more great offers. Text STOP at any time to cancel.”

It’s that easy. And it’s how thousands of businesses around the world are using short codes from MessageMedia to automate their campaigns, increase customer engagement, and gain a competitive advantage.
