US Dedicated Short Code

Enable Immediate Mobile Customer Feedback and Participation

Use this five- or six-digit number to provide customers with an easy to memorize code that enables immediate participation in marketing campaigns. Dedicated Short Codes are capable of enabling high volume outbound mobile communication to opt-in subscribers and also perfect for enabling mobile responses for print, radio, TV, event or FMCG packaging campaigns.

A US Dedicated Short Code from Clickatell enables advanced mobile marketing capabilities, including easy-to-use bi-directional communication, unlimited keyword use  and vanity short codes that translate your brand name into a corresponding five- or six-digit number that can be requested as a vanity short code, when available eg. GECKO = 43256
