How to format phone numbers?

- 5 MIN READ - 22 Sep 2013

Since SMS messaging helps many to connect with their customers around the world, also standardized phone number format is used for sending SMS internationally, thus helping you to reach mobile subscribers globally.

Correctly formatted international mobile phone number:

Unified number format includes essential details for routing your SMS and delivering the message to your customer in the particular continent and country.

We suggest to make sure, that all the numbers contain only digits, there are no spaces or other punctuation, as well as country codes are included and phone numbers are valid. Messente supports importing mobile phone numbers with and without plus sign before the country code and checks format validity (including minimum length, character set etc.) while importing contacts.

After importing phone numbers in a “Contacts” group, Messente will also show you country-based statistics (as in the example picture above), thus you can double check if numbers were formatted correctly and were marked under the right country.

Good luck and keep texting!

Your sales lab time is scarce

In the series about sales research, I touched upon allocating about 30% of your research time on finding new ideas and possibilities around sales tactics. But how do you actually do it and what do you look for?

An open letter to financial institutions from Yuriy

09 Jun 2017

To the bank, credit card company, and investment firm I work with: I trust you. I really do.

If I didn’t, I wouldn’t put my hard-earned money in your hands. While I’m not a Certified Financial Analyst, I am financially savvy, so I understand that we have a mutually beneficial relationship. From a high-level, banks use the money I deposit to sell loans and invest in other financial instruments. Credit card companies make money on interest charges, other fees, and transaction fees from merchants. The brokerage firm makes money through fees on my account. On the other hand, all I expect is that you are honest about your services, provide returns, and keep my money safe.

Centralizing SMS operations and why you should consider it

07 Jun 2017

Centralization /(sɛntrəlʌɪˈzeɪʃ(ə)n/ noun - the action or process of bringing activities together in one place.

In the era of globalization and communication through technology, businesses no longer have borders and it's very common for companies to offer services from Germany to Zimbabwe, in multiple markets, and different continents. However, offering services in multiple countries leads to cooperating with a longer, more complicated list of partners.
