Why Your Recruitment Agency Needs An Influencer Marketing Approach
Influencer marketing is your number one strategy as the recruitment industry is dominated with bloggers serving their dedicated followers in the millions. This approach connects your agency with these top bloggers able to shout out about your products and services to their job seekers seeking new careers. This means that for lower costs than a managed Facebook PPC campaign with most services, you can pay for engagement from those followers, loyal to the bloggers through a series of posts and ads you control.
No big budgets required to run this campaign, it’s one fee.
This makes social posts and ads your better influencer marketing tool in your digital marketing toolkit.
When it comes to recruitment, campaigns managed on Facebook and LinkedIn prove to reach effective ways of bringing job candidates to employers. Facebook is used by 1000s of job seekers daily to find the next role, job fair, employer openings, and training. Facebook groups and pages in particular can attract a mass audience of job seekers. LinkedIn also offers a platform ready-made to connect employers and candidates.
At present, I offer a service that is dedicated to the Swansea area and employers and job seekers within. You can view the Swansea Jobs Facebook page.
For only £79, no contract, no subscription, a complete PAYG service, your ads will reach a targeted audience of 1000s of job seekers in South Wales seeking work in Swansea and surrounding areas. Within the service, this is focused on one of the below influencer marketing strategies which is social mentions. This includes targeted ads, shares to job seeker groups and partnering with high follower count and high engagement pages. The post shares and partnering within the fee includes outreach to partner with LinkedIn influencers in recruitment.
The impact of COVID on the industry is significant though employers are reacting with more flexible positions and either offering temporary remote working jobs or allowing employees to work remotely in a permanent role. Your ads if required will take this into account when posting job vacancy details as per the needs of the employer.
Why Should The Recruitment Industry Focus on Influencers?
Influencer marketing combines the best aspects of content marketing, social media marketing and link building. This is how this is achieved.
