Tired of steep learning curves? ConnectMe is different. When you want to launch a flash sale, send us a text using the 5STRZ ('57879') short code. That's it. No fancy web interfaces, no complicated rules.

 

 

  • Short codes are special telephone numbers used by phone companies worldwide to handle business text messaging.
  • Send us a single image and we'll turn it into a beautiful, pixel-perfect web page (see left). Or - send images of new arrivals and we'll turn it into a 720p DVD-quality video instead.
