SMS Short Code : Better than GSM Modem Connections?
Trinity has released its RequesTV Online and Movie Max4 Softwares that are having interactions through Short Code SMS Number 56767. With this, customers can interact with channels sending an SMS to 56767 with K123 as keyword.
This SHORT CODE method has major advantages over 10-Digit normal method in which you CONNECT your GSM phone to a PC.
Easy to remember:
Short code number like 56767 is easy to remember than a normal 10-Digit number. People can send SMS to you easily.
Short SMS Numbers are in vogue whether it is for TV Shows or Brand Marketing
Some argue that customers have to pay Rs. 2 or 3 in case of SHORT CODE SMS. But this will filter out customers with free SMS schemes who send unlimited SMS to your channel for song selections/ Complaints in case of 10-Digit Numbers. You can expect genuine viewers interacting with you.
Free out going charges:
When you receive a SMS in case of Normal 10-Digit Method, you have to pay for the out going SMS charges. In case of short code, customer is updated by a return SMS message which is free for you! Eg: When customer sends a complaint, a Complaint Number goes to him for which you don't have to pay for.
Limited Support for mobile phones:
In case of 10-Digit method limited phones are supported by software Operating Systems. Here you don't need a phone if you have leased line or cable internet.
Multiple SMS Problem:
When you receive multiple SMS at once, the 10-Digit method crashes out as the software has to handle all these SMS and there is a limitation in communicating with the mobile. In case of SHORT CODE, since it is IP based, the Operating System can handle multiple SMS requests!
If you provide cable internet, your cost is 0! Else less than 250 per month on Airtel Live scheme.
Other advantages of being on the Net:
Trinity also has other services like Cricket and other Sports Scores Updates (Automatically), News Updates, Messaging, etc. which can act like value added services to your customers. You can also get LIVE support from Trinity once you are connected to the net!
