SMS Mega Promotions

SMS Mega Promos are large scale SMS promotions that usually last from 60 to 180 days but can have different duration depending on agreed objectives and market particularities.
They’re highly interactive SMS games that are specially designed as branded promotions for mobile network operators, while they maximize campaign revenues, customer retention and satisfaction figures.
So how does it work?
All subscribers receive an informative Call-To-Action SMS to join the interactive SMS game. Subscribers send back an SMS to a designated for the promotion premium-priced short code and as of that moment they start to collect points and gain prizes according to the related terms and conditions and game format of the promotion.
A Mega Promotion can have more participation channels such as IVR and native Mobile Applications, web sites and microsites as well as social media. In addition, airtime top-up can be a channel of entry in the campaign that provides additional draw points.

Prizes to be awarded and game formats vary. Operators can choose prizes between cash, gadgets, telco prizes, etc.. and game formats include mobile lottery formats, games of skills, knowledge quiz, and mix formats depending on the legal framework of the region and that customer target group.
