Do I need my own short code?

What does it mean to be 100% white labeled?
The term “white label” refers to a product or service that is purchased by a reseller who rebrands the product or service to give the impression that the reseller created it. Some companies do not offer a full white label service so be sure to ask when researching them.
What is the difference between a short code and a long code?
There are many reasons why short code usage is more efficient than long codes in the long run for your business. Long codes are mainly used for individual person-to-person correspondence which means that when messages are sent out, they go at a slower speed (only 1 per second to be exact). Simply put, long codes are not allowed to be used for marketing activities. In terms of mass messaging operated by an application, we at Lime Cellular highly suggest the use of a short code for a more productive and effective experience. Short codes are capable of sending out SMS and MMS messages at a rate of 200 messages per second which allows messages to be sent to many users at once. Additionally, carriers will not filter or suspend your message for heavy traffic because all of our short codes are approved by them for their intended use. Short codes can be used for anything from marketing communications, large one-to-many notification bursts, and high volumes of one-to-one transactional notifications. Overall, short codes are more advantageous to utilize for any business.
What is the difference between a vanity keyword and a system generated keyword?
