Your situation sounds frustrating. We use Indeed ourselves for most all our hiring, and can confirm that they’re a great company. Do you have a job posting on Indeed, or are you simply using Indeed to contact people you haven’t met? Email response rates are typically low, with only about 20% or less of people opening an email from someone they don’t know (see stats below). What is it you’re trying to accomplish on Indeed? Are you looking to hire a full time worker? You might consider a job posting, and make it compelling. Or if all else fails, consider a freelancer, posting on another job site (see below) or maybe work with an HR staffing agency to find the employees you need. Best of luck to you.
