Time-Saving Advantages with Texting vs. Email

iRecruit TXT Benefits Open Rate

A staggering statistic, yet it’s true 20-30% of emails are opened versus 98% of Texts.

Email Deliverability

If you have trouble getting a hold of candidates via email, this could be the reason. Some emails are sent into spam folders, sometimes not seen for days, some are not delivered at all, while others simply remain unopened.  If there’s a typo in the email address “.con instead of “.com,” or “gmial” instead of “gmail” it won’t get delivered at all.

Text Deliverability

With iRecruit TXT feature, the applicant has to firstly confirm their opt-in to receive texts, and verify their phone number, so you always have accurate contact information which ensures a higher deliverability rate.

With texting, the applicant is opting-in to receive texts from your company, in addition, they also verify their phone number.

You won’t accidently text a landline.

Speed of Replies

Most people have their cell phones within arms reach at all times. With texting, you can expect a quicker reply than versus email. If your message is urgent, or time sensitive, texting is the way to go. Applicants can also more easily and discretely reply to a text versus an email.
