SMS is different in UK, Ireland and other countries

8 replies
For those thinking of doing sms in the UK and Ireland (and a few other countries), unlike the USA you are not restricted in the number of characters you have consequently a proper message can be sent and if your client has a substantial local sms database (over 1000) they can make money every time they send out a text. The sms company I use is cheap, delivers up to 440 chatacters and text messages are seen to be coming from the business not a mobile phone number. They also provide sms keywords to a standard rate short code number for only a hundred quid a year....thats what you need doing sms marketing
