A number that people will remember with ease

<p>Short Codes</p>

Short codes are easy to remember 3-4 digit virtual numbers that allow you to send at the highest messaging volume and throughput.

A short code is a number which allows you to send and receive text messages from your Burst SMS account. Short codes are compulsory for sending high-throughput campaigns in New Zealand. You can choose between two types of short codes to lease month-to-month: Standard Dedicated and Dedicated Free to End User (FTEU).

What are keywords?

SMS Keywords act as a prompt for replies, which drives engagement.

Once a reply is made to your virtual number, the keyword acts as a trigger which can activate a variety of functions.

Popular triggers include confirming an appointment, entering a competition, forwarding to an email, group chat, and setting an auto response.
