SMSGlobal - Dedicated Number (VDN) Solutions

By: SMSGlobal  06-Dec-2011

> We offer VDN (Virtual Dedicated Number) – also known as Long Codes!

A Dedicated Number is a simple alternative to use instead of providing your own personal number and also a great way to engage your audience, some examples below.

Would you like to initiate dialogue with new and potential customers? Or send SMS by using keywords to respond to your customers needs? Would you like your customers to be able to find your nearest location using their mobile?
Advertise your Dedicated Number on TV, radio, newspapers & magazines to allow for incoming SMS leads from new customers. A Dedicated Number can recognise predefined keywords and automatically respond to your customer needs accordingly. Have customers SMS their suburb to find your closest business location.
Looking for an easier way to manage opt-outs? Perhaps you would like to save time and money with your appointment confirmations? Don't want your outgoing SMS coming from your personal mobile number?
Automatically manage opt-outs by allowing your recipients to reply STOP to your Dedicated Number to have their number removed from your phonebook. Schedule outgoing SMS to remind your customers of upcoming appointments, and receive YES/NO confirmations through your Dedicated Number. A Dedicated Number can be used as an alternative to prevent mass SMS being delivered to your mobile phone.
