Recruiting with Text Messages
Auto Response sends an automated text message response when a customer texts in your keyword. But with Message Launch, that’s just the beginning. Our automated text service can even launch drip campaigns or ask questions and capture the answers.
How Text to Recruit Works
In order to message potential employees, you need to get them to sign up for your texting program. With mobile keywords, you can collect opt-in mobile numbers automatically so applicants can sign themselves up to receive information about open positions. This allows you to automatically grow your applicant lists without having to manually enter information. You can promote your keywords through different recruitment channels like Facebook, Twitter, flyers, on job posts, and emails.
