SMS marketing services typically run off a short code, but sending text messages to an email address is another methodology (though this method is not supported by the carriers).
Short codes are 5 or 6 digit numbers that have been assigned by all the mobile operators in a given country especially for the use of brand campaign and other consumer services.
Another alternative to sending messages by short code or email is to do so through one's own dedicated phone number.
Besides short codes, inbound SMS can be received on long numbers (international number format, e.g. 7), which can be used in place of short codes or premium-rated short messages for SMS reception in several applications, such as product promotions and campaigns.
Over the past few years SMS marketing has become a legitimate advertising channel in some parts of the world.
This is because unlike email over the public internet, the carriers who police their own networks have set guidelines and best practices for the mobile media industry (including mobile advertising).
