Step 2: Optimize your site to maximize conversion.
A great staffing website is designed to get people to take action. Every page has a purpose, and it offers one or more ways for people to respond.
Ideally, your website will get job seekers to apply to jobs and employers to request information about your services. But these aren’t the only kinds of actions people can take. Your website could also encourage people to:
- Download an article or eBook
- Watch an on-demand webinar
- Request a consultation or resume critique
- Sign up for job alerts
- Sign up for a newsletter (or other publication)
- Request more information about a top candidate
- Find their nearest local office
- Chat with you
- Call now
Those last two ideas are particularly important for mobile site visitors. On mobile, people tend to prefer calling or texting over filling out a form. So if you want to maximize conversion, make it easy for people to connect with you…the way they want to connect.
Offering a variety of ways to respond is important. Driving people to those conversion pages is just as important. The best staffing websites have calls to action on every web page, and they use a variety of formats for those calls to action.
