A month or so ago, we got a call from a group that wanted to know if our 84444 text message marketing site worked in the US Virgin Islands.
I had always heard that our short code worked in the US Virgin Islands, but in the many years that we’ve operated 84444.com, I hadn’t had any direct experience attributable to the US Virgin Islands so, quite frankly, I didn’t know for sure.
Well, we are happy to report that the service works flawlessly in the paradise of the US Virgin Islands. So much so, in fact, that the political customer that first signed up with us is using it more and more. The great news is that the short code based text messages really stand out in the US Virgin Islands, because people simply don’t get as many messages there as they do elsewhere.
84444 has long stated that one of its “special sauce” is that it has the same short code 84444 in both the United States and Canada, thus making it easy for border and international advertisers to use our site and gain opt-ins on both sides of the border with no need to create costly advertisements for both countries. Now, perhaps there’s a new special sauce that we discovered and its the US Virgin Islands!
You won’t believe how many employees have volunteered to visit to do additional testing.
