Make an IMPACT Idea #15: Influencer Marketing

Share this:

Did you know that influencers can help your staffing firm attract new clients and generate sales leads? 

No, we’re not talking about Instagram or TikTok stars. 

In staffing, influencer marketing means connecting with individuals who have an influence on your ideal clients, both inside and outside their organizations.  

By building influential networks, staffing professionals can tap into a consistent source of new sales leads. Keep reading as we explore the concept of influencer marketing in the staffing industry – and provide you with practical strategies to implement. 

What Is Influencer Marketing? 

Influencer marketing is all about leveraging the credibility and reach of influential individuals to promote your staffing and recruiting services. But who are those individuals, exactly? 

Influencers can be industry thought leaders, executives, HR professionals, or even hiring managers at client organizations. By establishing relationships with these key influencers, you can tap into their networks, gain access to new prospects, and position your firm as a trusted authority. 

How Do I Make Influencer Marketing Work for My Firm? 

Let’s break it down: 

  1. Identify the right influencers. Start by identifying influential individuals in your target market. Look for professionals who have a strong online presence, actively engage with their audience, and align with your staffing firm’s values and niche. Research industry events, social media platforms, and online communities to find these influencers. 
  2. Engage and build relationships. Once you’ve identified potential influencers, focus on building authentic and meaningful connections with them. Engage with their content, share their posts, and provide valuable insights and comments. Actively participate in industry discussions and events where influencers are present. This will help you establish yourself as a valuable contributor and catch their attention. 
  3. Collaborate on content. One effective way to leverage influencers is by co-creating content. Collaborate on blog posts, webinars, podcasts, or even contribute to their publications. By leveraging their reach and expertise, you can position your staffing firm as an authority in the industry. Additionally, this collaboration exposes your firm to a wider audience and helps generate new leads. 
  4. Create advocate programs. Encourage your satisfied clients to become advocates for your staffing firm. Identify clients who are influential within their organizations or industry, and ask them to share their experiences and success stories. By leveraging their influence and network, you can attract new clients who trust the recommendations of industry peers.
