25 Digital Marketing Ideas For Staffing and Recruiting
- Share Real-Life Photos Of Your Team
It’s great for employer branding to put a face to a brand. It provides a sneak-peek into what working with a company is like. Photos of team members working with candidates, in the community, or at company events can help humanize a brand and create an emotional connection with the audience.
- Use A/B Testing To Optimize Facebook Ads
Systematically test headlines, copy, images, and calls to action to see which perform best. To set up an A/B test, make two ads identical except for one variable; serve both ads to the same exact audience, and don’t run any other ads during the trial.
- Build A Detailed Content And Social Sharing Calendar
It keeps your content focused, relevant, and aligned with your overall marketing strategy. The time you invest in creating your calendar will make execution so much easier.
- Integrate Monthly Emails into Client Communication
Whether you’re sending information on staffing, top candidates, hot jobs, or just a fun seasonal greeting, it’s important to stay top of mind with clients and candidates so, “when they need you, they’ll know you.”
- Don’t Just Focus on Professional Content
The best social media post for a healthcare staffing company in California was of their annual guacamole contest. Show the human side of your team!
- Find The Perfect Tone For Your Brand Voice
What gets your audience engaged? Being bold and fresh, or professional and formal? Think through not only content but how you engage with your audience online in the comments or messages.

Bing is an underrated search engine that can do more than you think! There are so many ways to get value from Bing, particularly from search campaigns.

- Design More Engaging Pay-Per-Click Graphics
Outline the most basic and essential design principles to consider when creating the graphics for a pay-per-click campaign – anything from colors and branding, photo selection, and typography, to movement and video.
- Set Up An Effective PPC Campaign
No matter which platform you use or what your budget is, there are a few things every campaign has in common that should be triple-checked before launch! These include your goals, target audience, and CTAs.
- Dig Into Your Database
Your candidate ATS list is a valuable resource. Don’t let it gather dust. Use this built-in audience for Google Ads, Facebook ads, email, or texts. You can segment to send specific messaging.
