Hinge published a report Thursday on the best ways to start a conversation with your matches and improve your chances of getting a response.
The report is the result of a month-long experiment, during which members of the Hinge team crafted over 100 different openers and let a small portion of its users access them.
Whenever the app matched those people with someone new, it sent them a prompt to use one of the conversation starters.
Here are the best tips Hinge gleaned from its study: If you're really, really hoping to get a response from your match, a vague greeting won't get you stellar results.
As far as response rates go, “Hey” performs at average, while “Hey, what’s up” performs at 4 percent above average.
"We’re aiming to help users do better than average, and are thus showing examples of the types of things that do better than a generic opener," Karen Fein, Hinge’s vice president of marketing, told The Huffington Post.
