Why use a Custom Sender ID?

Customised sender ID's establish trust with recipients - whereas it gains repall with the receiver, who often recongise your brand via their custom to your business. The sender ID can be a company name or a short alphanumeric code depending on the specific SMS mesaging requirements - however, most companies use their brand name; in some shape or form.

3 Convenient Sender ID Options Available:

The SMSit messaging platform offers you the choice of either using your own mobile number; a shared number in our system; or an alphanumeric name such as your business name - ideal for branding your SMS messages from the moment your customer's receive your message.

Option 1: Custom Sender ID

Eg: BeautySalon or DrMaxCarter. Be creative!

Use your business name as the Sender ID with up to 11 alphanumeric characters for branded SMS messaging. This feature allows you to brand your SMS message so that customers know who you are, from the get-go!

Please note: You will not be able to receive responses to your messages with a custom Sender ID.

Option 2: Use Our Shared Number

Use our shared dedicated mobile numbers to send SMS to your customers.

The best option is to set the caller ID to a virtual number that can process responses and even forward them to your email.

You can then reply to those SMS messages by email to send back a confirmation text message for real-time 2-way SMS messaging.
