How does GroSMS work?
We have taken the hassle out of getting your own shortcode!
With our SMS Competitions Software, you are able to choose your SMS Keyword and your Competition dates. Once your choices have been made, you will be assigned a shortcode number to use during that time period.
So you might ask, "Will my SMS number be the same as someone else's?" The answer is YES, you will have the same shortcode but you will have a unique "keyword". If you reserve the keyword "LAUGH", no-one else will be able to use that keyword for the duration of your SMS Competition. Your chosen keyword will be yours exclusively for the duration of your SMS competition. Once your SMS competition has ended, the keyword will become available for someone else to use.
