Group Texting is here to bring long codes to the world of text message marketing. A few definitions are in order:

Long Codes
Long codes, also known as long numbers and DIDs are virtual mobile phone numbers. Long codes can send and receive text messages just like any other mobile phone number. In order to send and receive text messages using your long code you need to use a gateway service like Group Texting. Our web app (hint: it’s free to give it a spin) allows you to easily and affordably send text messages to 10 people or 10,000 people in seconds. That brings us to text message marketing.

Text Message Marketing
Text message marketing (a $3.2 billion dollar a year industry!) is exactly what is sounds like – marketing to your customers using text messages. Want to learn more about text message marketing? Take the Group Texting tour.
