Keep in mind that emojis use Unicode encoding, and they’re bigger than regular characters. As soon as you add an emoji, your SMS switches to support Unicode. Instead of getting 160 characters per SMS, you now get 70 characters, so your message needs to be brief unless you don’t mind going over.
Did you also know that you can create emoji keywords? They function like a regular SMS keyword, but they’re much more creative and fun for your customers. For example, your customers can send you a pizza emoji to opt in to your SMS list. Read more about it here.
