As Business Texting continues to gain popularity as a marketing channel, the demand for reliable and cost-effective solutions increases. 10DLC addresses several limitations associated with shortcodes, making it a preferred choice for businesses. Some key reasons for the need of 10DLC in text marketing are:
Cost-effectiveness: Long codes are significantly more affordable than short codes, making them a cost-effective option for businesses, especially small and medium-sized enterprises.
Scalability: With the growing number of businesses adopting text marketing, the availability of shortcodes becomes limited. 10DLC offers scalability by providing a larger pool of available numbers to accommodate the increasing demand.
Local Presence: Long codes resemble regular phone numbers, which adds a local presence to text messages. This can enhance customer trust and engagement, as recipients are more likely to respond to messages from familiar-looking numbers. We can add a local number that can handle calls and businesses can choose to forward calls to their business landline/VoIP number. Or add texting to their existing business number keeping voice services with existing providers. (Landline texting)
