Yes I do & it's not a minute. It's around 10.

I know that when I register for something myself & they call right away I get totally annoyed so I make sure I don't do it.

I am just getting into this myself. I always call in person as soon as I can. I am now setting up texting and I am setting to text 2 minutes after someone registers. A friend recommended this and said it would look less automated than if it was immediate.

No automation by me. I dont trawl for leads either, I just wait for the phone to ring. Less stress. Less chasing 98% of leads that do nothing.

Depends on the content of your message and how that lead was generated. And being aware you stated  "SMS and Email."

I think the expectation that consumer are unaware all this stuff is automated is not giving them them proper respect.

I do not delay, however my response is selective based on their context or relational aspect of the link to which they responded.

What I find works well is "Give me some time to  gather the information and data needed. I will contact you within 3 hours.  Meanwhile here is some remarkable information regarding (your escalation here)."

No, I do not.  The only thing I have set up that is automated is the request a consult feature ... it lets them know their request was received.
