MMS (multimedia message service) and SMS (short message service) have very different applications, so if you’re weighing them up against each other, look to your individual use case for guidance. 

MMS is perfect for putting your brand in the spotlight. Boosting sales and reducing churn come naturally thanks to powerful, rich media formats – images, animation, video, audio, and more. Think coupons, promotions, invites, and campaigns. 

SMS is a messaging workhorse. It really comes into its own for bulk sending or time-sensitive notifications to get a simple message across. Think appointment reminders, pin codes, package delivery updates, and bank balance alerts.
