What is business text messaging, aka business SMS?

Basically, business SMS involves using text messages to quickly and conveniently connect with customers. Short, easily digestible text messages are perfect for a wide range of use cases — appointment reminders and scheduling, payment notifications, delivery updates, special offers, driving people to your website or to your social media feeds, and much more.

What is business MMS?

MMS, or Multimedia Messaging Service, was built on the same technology as SMS, but it allows you to send rich content like images, videos, GIFs, and audio. With business MMS, you can enhance text messages to increase brand awareness, customer engagement, and sales.

Opt-Out Assist for 10DLC Registered SMS Numbers

Streamline the opt-out messaging process and ensure compliance with 10DLC regulations by setting up automatic responses sent to customers who text your business HELP or STOP. For instance, if a customer sends the STOP keyword, the your business’s predefined response message will be sent and a block will be placed on that phone number preventing future SMS messaging. 

There's also the option to send an automatic reply to the opt-in keyword, JOIN.

With Vonage Business Communications, users in the U.S. with a registered phone number can send and receive business SMS and MMS to any U.S. and Canada phone number1 from their professional identities, even on their personal devices.
