- Description of Service
SMS Keywords, SMS Coupons & Property Keywords are a one-word phrase that identifies a vendor’s product, service, event, organization, or market positioning. SMS Keywords consist of letters and/or numbers that can be sent to a host mobile number in order to trigger a customized response. When an advertised keyword is received, the vendor’s response text message is automatically sent to the initiator (a prospect or customer) who, demonstrated by their action, must be interested in the product or services offered. This response can include Mobile Coupons (we love mobile coupons!) or links to a vendor’s website.
