Understanding A2P Brand and Campaign Registration
A2P (Application-to-Person) messaging is a mode of communication that involves sending mobile messages from a software application to a mobile user. It's a popular method for businesses to connect with their customers. To ensure message quality, prevent spam, and improve deliverability, DashClicks utilizes a Brand and Campaign Registration system. This system requires users to register their brand and messaging campaigns, promoting a trustworthy messaging ecosystem.
Reasons for A2P Brand and Campaign Registration
Several reasons necessitate registering for A2P Brand and Campaign Registration:
1. Mandatory Requirement:
Compliance with telecommunication industry regulations requires brand and campaign registration to send or receive SMS messages via the DashClicks platform.
2. Enhanced Deliverability:
Registered brands and campaigns have higher SMS deliverability rates, ensuring your messages reach your intended audience.
3. Trust and Credibility:
Registration encourages trust among message recipients, as they are assured the message comes from a verified source.
