Advertise Better and for Cheap with Shared Short Codes
Does a high marketing spend leave you sleepless?
Then you’ll be surprised to know that kind of sender identity you choose for your business profoundly impacts your Salesforce marketing returns in the long run.
The keywords would be advertised.
Those keywords would have great recall and become a part of the brand identity.
But this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.
Whether you’re choosing a long code or short code, you should always consider your goal and purposes for which you will use the sender identity selected.
Particularly in the US, long codes are good for interactive messaging as they are usually 10-digit numbers. Still, they are not ideal for high-volume messaging, as you can only send one message per second.
On the contrary, shortcodes are perfect for marketing and promotions, as you can send a high volume of messages. You can send 100 messages per second or even more with a shortcode.
But do you know there are two types of Salesforce shortcodes dedicated and shared shortcodes?
This may seem counterintuitive, but you can advertise better and more frugally using a shared shortcode.
Here's how shared shortcode helps you Advertise Better
Split the cost
As the name should tell you, multiple users share a shared shortcode.
Thousands or more users use the same shortcode, making it inexpensive for business operations. This splits the cost of maintaining a short code in many ways.
You simply don’t have to bear the cost of acquisition. It’s just you have to pay the cost of renting keywords, which is still cheaper as opposed to other types of shortcodes for sending Salesforce SMS.
Get campaigns off the ground faster
Another factor that makes a shared shortcode a perfect pick for advertising is that you don’t have to invest time in acquiring Salesforce shared shortcodes or waiting for approval.
You can get started with advertising and marketing in minutes using a shared shortcode.
Even more interesting is that you can get all the benefits and recognition of a dedicated Salesforce shortcode at a fraction of the price of a dedicated shortcode.
You can gain the trust of shortcodes at a much lower cost, preventing you from putting a strain on your overall advertising expense. Especially for OOH (Out of House) advertising.
