Receive SMS With Short Codes, Long Codes & Keywords

Provide easy, cost-effective way for customers & prospects to reach out to you instantly

Receiving SMS messages couldn't be easier with our keywords, short codes & long codes

Gather mobile opt-ins & information requests via keywords, short codes and long codes

Textlocal Messenger allows you to receive SMS messages online from your customers and prospects using a combination of keywords, short codes and long codes. The received SMS are stored in your inbox and you can easily respond to and manage them using a variety of tools provided by Textlocal. 

Customers can reach you for more information or show interest in your product or service via a simple SMS sent to your inbox. You can configure your inbox either by using keywords on shared numbers or by just using dedicated numbers. With the shared number option, any SMS sent with your keyword (e.g. MyCompany) to a shared short code (e.g. 56263xxx) or a shared long code (e.g. 92205 xxxxx) reaches your inbox. With the dedicated option, any SMS sent to your dedicated short code or long code reaches your inbox.

Adding a short code or long code to your marketing provides an easy, low-cost way for customers to contact you instantly. Shared short codes/long codes are perfect to get started with your SMS marketing activity, as they are very affordable, while being easy to remember for customers.

Inbound numbers also help you organically expand your contact database! Anyone who sends an sms to your inbox is classed as an opt-in for the session and their number will be available in your inbox, ready to transfer to your contact list – saving you time and money buying in mobile data or targeting contacts not engaged with your brand. 

Whether you want to expand your contact database or receive replies by two way SMS communication, Textlocal has the answer and many of our clients tell us that having a text reply option substantially increases overall response rates.

Intuitive Interface, Great Team, Prompt Solutions

Easy to use software and very intuitive interface. From registering to sending my first message campaign out to becoming a Pro customer with approval for Transactional SMS services it took less than a day. Specially would like to appreciate my account manager Nikhil who was very swift in helping during the entire setup. Even today the Textlocal team is always available for any queries and support. Keep it up Team Textlocal.
