A keyword is a unique command word that people can text to a predefined virtual number or short code in order to join your mobile club, request info, or enter a competition. uConnect automatically adds the mobile number of the incoming text to the group associated with your keyword, as well as their name or e-mail, if supplied.
You can create as many free keywords as you wish on our Virtual Numbers or upgrade your keyword to a more memorable short code as outlined below.
A short code is a memorable 5 digit number against which keywords are rented on a yearly basis. Unlike keywords on our long numbers, each keyword registered against one of our shared short codes is subject to a yearly rental fee, payable prior to inital setup. uConnect currently supports keyword registration against short codes in both Ireland and the United Kingdom.
