Why use international SMS?

International SMS is popular for a number of reasons: firstly because it’s cheap, but also because it’s highly effective and probably the most reliable way of communicating with overseas clients and customers. International SMS is ideal for communications that require a high level of delivery confidence and is hugely popular for travel delay and cancellation notifications, marketing messages, and billing notifications and reminders.

With over 90 percent of messages read within 90 seconds, SMS generates greater customer engagement and response than other forms of electronic communication. SMS delivers a much higher open rate than email and has far more impact than a tweet. Using international SMS means that you can reach customers just about anywhere in the world, with the confidence that they are receiving and reading your messages.

Using dedicated numbers and alpha tags with international SMS

If they are available in your region, using international SMS with a dedicated SMS number or branded alpha tag solution differentiate your messages and are perfect for brands that want a permanent and credible international marketing presence.

Registered alpha tags support one-way messaging, but dedicated numbers enable two-way messaging, which allows you to send and receive SMS from the same number, every time.  Incorporating two-way messaging allows easy and low-cost return communications from your customers, and is ideal for features like automated opt-out, appointment and booking rescheduling or cancellations, and customer service call-backs.

Check what is available for the country to which you want to send your messages, as different local regulations apply.  International support for Alphanumeric Sender ID.
