Archive for the ‘Premium SMS’ Category
There are three categories of short code programs from a pricing perspective.
- Standard Rate — The consumer is charged standard text messaging fees (usually decremented from their carrier messaging bundle) when participating in the program. No premium fees are charged. Standard rate is the type of text messaging offered by 84444.com.
- Premium Rate — The consumer is charged premium fees in addition to standard messaging fees that apply. You can not run a premium rate text message campaign on 84444.com, but Advanced Telecom Services does not offer Premium SMS services through another short code.
- Free to End User (FTEU) — This is the newest of the short code categories. With FTEU, the consumer incurs no charges at all for participating in the program. The carrier waives standard message fees for these programs. Such programs are currently extremely rare.
Are you a member of a text message service and don’t want to receive the messages any more? It’s easy to unsubscribe. Just reply with STOP and you’ll no longer be part of the database. This work for both premium SMS and standard rate services like those offered here on 84444.com.
One of the great things about our 84444.com platform is that it automatically removes your subscriber if they reply with one of the keywords like STOP. This makes it easy on you to spend your time marketing the services and not bothering with manual removal of opt-out customers.
Advanced Telecom Services, parent company of 84444.com, was recently mentioned in an article written by World Telemedia magazine. ATS provided the premium SMS solution for the Slapstick application and the Washington Capitals.
Unfortunately, the Capitals, who were the best team in the NHL this season (54-15-13), lost its first round playoff in seven games to the # 8 seed Montreal Canadiens. The # 2 seeded New Jersey Devils also were ousted — by the Philadelphia Flyers.
