- 95% of text messages are read within 3 minutes—most in UNDER 5 SECONDS! (source: Forbes, Slick Text)
- The response rate for SMS is 45%. Email response rate is 6%. (Source: Gartner)
- People respond to text messages in 90 seconds. It takes 90 minutes, on average, for an email response. (Source: CTIA)
Any way you measure it, texting reigns supreme.
Connect With Applicants Immediately
You can send a text instead of an email any time you need to communicate with an applicant:
- Arrange interviews
- Send email follow-ups
- Reminders/requests to complete questionnaires
Easier For You And Easier For The Applicant
Once you text an applicant, they can text you going forward. Any user on your hiring team can respond. The applicant will always see the same number.
This is the natural way for applicants to communicate. If they have a question or need to reschedule, they can send a quick text while they’re thinking about it.
Because of the near immediate response rate, texting can shorten time-to-hire considerably. Stop waiting for email responses. Eliminate a common process bottleneck.
