What is a short code?
Short codes are special telephone numbers, significantly shorter than full telephone numbers that can be used to address SMS text from mobile phones. It’s essentially abbreviated phone numbers, instead of 10 numbers its 5 numbers long- easier to remember and faster to type in a cell phone.
Why do we use a short code?
Short codes provide message immediacy and exceptional levels of consumer involvement. Our short code (65047) provides you with the security that your text messages will reach your customers as you intend. Short codes allow us to provide you with the same system used by Fortune 500 companies, like Pepsi and American Idol.
How to get a short code?
The hard way- You need to set up account and purchase a short code form the Common Short Code Administration. Once you receive your short code, you need to file an application with the 21 wireless carriers in US in order to get approval (release) for use of the short code on their networks. Of course, each carrier has its own slightly different set of requirements before approving and without carrier approval your short code does not transmit messages across the carrier’s networks.
The easy way- sign up for an account with momares.com and use our short code as your own.
How much does it cost to get a short code?
If you were to buy the short code yourself, it would cost between $6,000 to $12,000 a year. But why spend the money when you can use our short code (65047) for a fraction of the cost.
Why is it better to use a shared short code?
Unless you are a huge brand and worried that you short code match the numerical dial pad letters on a telephone key pad (COKE 2653) you are better off using a shared short code like ours (65047). Save yourself the money and headache, and focus on what matters most- your customers and increasing sales.
What does our short code (65047) mean?
To us it means the phrase OK"0"IS. What? You say. If you were to punch the numbers 6-5-0-4-7 in your telephone dial pad you would be able to spell the phrase OK"0"IS (0=6, k=5, 0, i=4, and s=7).
65047 or the phrase OK"0"IS has meaning for us... sometimes deep meaning and sometimes meaningless meaning but nevertheless its something more than numbers.
Below is a series of exploratory and often far fetched ideas of what our short code means, because there are no coincidences in life.
Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, taught "emptiness" of self, it is OK for the self to be empty like the number zero or in other words OK"0"IS.
For Love of Game
There are no points to a game, just the love of play for the sake of play. If the game ends in zero then...OK"0"IS.
In the beginning everything starts at the zero point. There were no words at the beginning of time but there were numbers and if those numbers spoke they would have said in a metaphysical voice 6-5-0-4-7 (translation OK"0"IS)
OK"0"IS because the number zero plays a central role in mathematics as the additive identity of the integers, real numbers, and many other algebraic structures. This is what Wikipedia told us about our short code, we have no idea what it means.
Zero is, while a purely real number, it is also a pure imaginary number because it lies on both the real and imaginary axes on the complex plane. The number 0 is neither positive nor negative. Yes, yes we say to the flexibility and duality of zero. OK"0"IS is your short code and you should be able to use it as it best fits you.
In the BC calendar era, the year 1 BC is the first year before AD 1, there is no room saved for a year zero. In the astronomical year numbering, the year 1 BC is numbered 0, the year 2 BC is numbered −1, and so on. OK"0"IS is our attempt at correcting this grave counting error which would make us all one year younger, hurray!
Records show that the ancient Greeks seemed unsure about the status of zero as a number. They asked themselves, "How can nothing be something?" leading to philosophical and religious arguments about the nature and existence of zero. We would like to shed light on the ancients by accepting that zero is ok and should be accepted as is or in other words OK"0"IS (65047)
OK"0"IS is what we like to tell the IRS regarding our tax bill.
OK"0"IS is ok, since it’s the amount of capital we had when we stared Momares.
