We’re excited to announce that text message notifications, one of our most-requested features since the launch of the new Casting Networks platform, were released on September 1! Talent based in the United States and Puerto Rico can now opt in to receive text message notifications for Casting Networks auditions and callbacks in addition to receiving these notifications via email. Text notifications enable talent to see and respond to questions, media requests and audition requests from casting faster than ever before.
Here are some insights into text notification activity since its launch earlier this month:
- Over 15K talent have opted in to receive text message notifications
- An average of 1.5K text notifications are sent daily
- An average of 16K text notifications are sent weekly
