So what does this mean for your business?

Spend Less Time On The Phone

Texting is a simple way to follow-up or get to the top of someone’s to-do list. It’s a subtle, non-intrusive reminder for prospects who can quickly reply with their interest level and availability, so you don’t waste time calling on the phone to no avail.

If you have several candidates to reach out to or have a specific talent pool that you need to get the word out to efficiently, group texts are a great option.

Less Time = More Money

The less effort you need to spend reminding your candidates about their upcoming job appointments, the more time you have to grow your business, improve customer service, and enhance your CX (candidate experience). Texting is also a great way to ensure that you maximize your profit opportunities.

Send job invites, reminders and confirmations and receive instant information regarding delays or cancellations to avoid losing money on no-shows and cancellations. Preventing a single late arrival or no-show typically covers the monthly cost of a texting service. That is, texting can pay for itself many times over.

Build Relationships with Candidates

Text messages allow agencies to communicate with candidates exactly how, when and where they like without being intrusive. It gives agencies the opportunity to spend less time on administrative tasks and more time on building connections. Focussing on candidate relationship building is one of the best ways to ensure candidate loyalty and redeployment.
