Recruitment marketers have a tough enough time managing their time and workload, let alone staying up to speed on the ever-changing tech, process and best practice for generating more candidates, clients and colleagues for their recruiters.
Through my recruitment marketing mentoring, I create SMEs “subject matter experts” in recruitment marketing – I help them (you) become aware and stay ahead of the trends that will affect how you perform and deliver ROI.
(And if one of your frustrations is that recruiters are not engaging with Adapt / Bullhorn effectively so you can monetise the data for marketing, there are LOADS of Adapt and Bullhorn Training tips on our Recruitment HIIT on demand training platform. Click for a free trial.)
How Do I Start Recruitment Marketing and Stop Simply Being the Colouring-in Department?
This marketing blog will give you some crucial hacks that I use in my marketing training, and help you stay focused on what genuinely needs to be done to deliver growth to your recruitment business.
SEO is NOT what it used to be - a dark art, full of keyword stuffing, crappy copy writing to fool Google, and so dull, geeky and technical that outsourcing was your only hope.
These days, Google has made it more “pedestrian” for the express purpose of appealing to a wider paying audience. We’ve been empowered to create keyword decks that can be the breath of not just your website, but your job adverts, phone calls, LinkedIn profiles etc…
I love this SEO podcast – there are some great listens to give you confidence and easy hacks to help you focus on what you need to do. It talks a lot about content and is super-practical for recruitment marketers who want to do my mantra - “less content, more marketing”.
Talking of “less content, more marketing” – if 60-70% of content is never actually used, you need to be sure that the precious time you spend as a recruitment marketer is spent delivering something that is capable of more than simply filling your day!
Your content needs to be:
And able to convert humans to candidates and clients… and recruiters into your best friends!
Although I don’t agree with all of the topics, there are some great ideas in this Content Marketing Podcast.
Dammit, I’m plugging my own podcast for recruitment marketers and their leaders.
With this content, I want to:
Stay current with the trends and thoughts of the leaders in our lovely recruitment industry.
Create content to help my clients and mentees.
And, of course, use it to generate leads for my own business.
There are marketing tips, ideas for tech to automate recruitment and marketing, and some common-sense advice from the leaders of our industry.
