Knowledge Snippet for Professional Services - Text Messaging Best Practices for Campus Recruiting
As smartphones have become an inseparable part of a student's daily life, here are some helpful tips to make the most of campus recruiting efforts with text messaging.
Young candidates won't give it a second glance if your application process is too complicated. Your recruitment text messaging program should be super accessible to any audience. An online opt-in link or a printed QR code at career fairs will do the trick.
A good call to action should always be followed by a shortened URL, starting a path for your candidates by navigating them to your next recruitment step. You can also monitor the click-through rate to improve later message touches. Remember that the website where the link takes your recipient had better be mobile-friendly to dodge any confusion.
Make Your Call-to-Action Transparent
Don't make your recipients waste time figuring out why they received your message. You can straighten your call-to-action out. Try navigating how they respond to your message by using action verbs like "apply," "call," or "visit."
Take Text Quality and Frequency Into Account
One of the common mistakes recruiters commit is sending too many texts in a short period. Remember that there are rules and regulations
related to commercial messaging that cover spam and SMS frequency.
Keep your texts brief yet informative. Use bullets to list down only important stuff and avoid being wordy. The more candidates have to scroll down, the less interested they are in your messages.
