According to a Pew Study, for many teens, texting is the dominant way that they communicate on a day-to-day basis with their friends. Some 88% of teens text their friends at least occasionally, and fully 55% do so daily.

According to a Pew Study, for many teens, texting is the dominant way that they communicate on a day-to-day basis with their friends. Some 88% of teens text their friends at least occasionally, and fully 55% do so daily.  Contrast this with only 6% of teens using emails with friends on a daily basis.

For example, during the 2018 January-April busy scholarship & grant season, SmarterSelect sent over 100,000 text messages to applicants and evaluators. We feel pretty certain those messages were not ignored.

How do you ensure information about your programs reach your applicants?

 

With text messaging features from SmarterSelect, your applicants can receive automatic messages such as Application Created, Application Submitted, and Application Updated, etc.  Additionally, you can broadcast text message reminders and custom text messages with a few clicks to your applicants.  Even send a custom text message to a single applicant.

Plus, get the attention of your evaluators and committee members regarding new evaluations to read and reminders to finish their existing evaluations with text messages.
