SMS (Short Message Service) is a message that contains only text, while MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) is a message that contains text and media (images, GIFs, videos). Not only are MMS messages a lot more eye-catching, they allow for up to 1600 characters of text. A standard SMS message is limited to 160 characters for each send.
The biggest difference is that MMS campaigns on average reach 15-20% higher engagement levels compared to SMS messages!
