So what is Premium SMS?

Premium SMS is a range of services where SMS texts are sent from a phone to a shortcode number (e.g. 80010, 88080) usually with a keyword that triggers a response from the Premium SMS system.

So you might text the keyword "VOTE" plus A, B or C to 80010 to register a text vote for one of 3 choices. Or you might text "QUIZ" plus your answer to a question to 88080 to go into a draw for a prize.

Voting and Quizzes are just two of many types of "Premium SMS Campaign" that can be run. For a fuller list click here.

What's the point of Premium SMS?

There are two main uses.

Firstly it can be used to generate permission-based mobile phone mailing lists. So by giving you the opportunity to enter a quiz with a holiday as a prize I capture your mobile number and can use it for future marketing activities. Basically I can send you adverts or news items.

Secondly it can be used to make money. It is possible to make a charge to the phone, with the user's permission, for the campaign entered. So you could charge up to £5 to enter a quiz for a top prize and provided enough people enter you keep the surplus. Or you could use it to sell images, movie clips, ganes, etc.

So what do I need to do next?
