Benefits of using Short Code and Long Code
The shortcode is mostly utilized by businesses for a variety of marketing campaigns that are rolled over from time to time. It is advisable to use a shortcode in case, a business is thinking of promoting brand awareness through various ideas of promotion like contests, lucky draws etc.
However, we feel particular that in a long run, the long code is a better choice for business. Without any intervention from the service provider, there is no requirement of getting any endorsement from them for the texts sent via long codes, unlike the shortcodes which have the need of obtaining a keyword from the text messaging service provider.
