How Recruitment Marketing Can Transform Your Hiring Process

Written By The Talent Games Marketing Team

In the current age, recruiters must shift their mindset to think like marketers and build a killer recruitment marketing strategy to significantly boost candidate engagement.

What is Recruitment Marketing?

Recruitment marketing is the process of promoting your employer brand by the application of marketing best practices to attract, engage and nurture passive talent — before they apply to your job. This is typically done with the help of various strategies and tactics, such as omni-communication, analytics, tech-enabled automation and targeted messaging.

As a holistic approach, recruitment marketing touches every aspect of your outreach and puts emphasis on the Employer Value Proposition to help hiring managers acquire qualified talent.

Benefits of Recruitment Marketing

1. Kick off a Positive Candidate Experience

The relationship between the candidate and your company begins right when they encounter your business. And from this stage, the candidate journey begins, with people evaluating your company as an employer and deciding whether to apply or not. With recruitment marketing, you have the option of customizing every touch point based on “who” the candidate is and their level of engagement.

In essence, recruitment marketing allows you to transform the candidate experience and form an amazing first impression way before the dream candidate connects with your talent acquisition team.

2. Boost Your Employer Brand

Candidates don’t apply to companies, they apply to brands. Not a surprise that 75% of active job seekers are likely to apply to a job if the employer actively manages its employer brand.

Shrewd recruiters fully understand this, thus they develop an effective recruitment marketing strategy to help them convey the employer value proposition (EVP) right away and differentiate the company from its competitors.

By posting powerful content on the company’s careers page, nurturing campaigns and using the right kind of messaging, they manage to attract and retain the best talent.

3. Accelerate the Hiring Process

Recruitment marketing allows hiring professionals to build a great candidate pipeline.

By allowing them to pick out the high-caliber candidates without having to weed out less desirable candidates, it significantly accelerates the hiring process.

4. Reduce Hiring Costs

A lot of recruiters end up wasting tons of money on talent attraction efforts because they don’t track and analyze their hiring metrics.

With recruitment marketing, you get to track the effectiveness of different campaigns on generating pipeline. This, in turn, alleviates hiring costs and makes sure you invest only on areas that will attract a relevant candidate pool.
