Premium rate SMS is an efficient voting method for both the promoter and customer alike as it allows people to cast their vote by text message quickly and easily whilst returning a good rate of revenue.
Premium rate SMS (PSMS) entry appeals to a wide audience and allows you to capture entrants from a market that may not necessarily enter via more traditional methods. Here is an example of how PSMS text voting would work in relation to a reality TV show:
Who do you want to win the competition?
- Contestant A
- Contestant B
- Contestant C
Voters type in their answer prefixed by your unique keyword (e.g. VOTE B) to a five digit shortcode. A sample SMS would look like this - "VOTE B" and be text to a five digit shortcode such as 12345.
