It’s simple. Every successful recruitment marketing campaign needs a great landing page. Especially in the digital age, where you are often recruiting with a brief post, Google ad or even a text, you need to direct candidates to a landing page with specific and recognizable content. Some media (like Google) will even measure your campaigns by how relevant the landing page is to your message.
When we are setting up a recruitment marketing campaign for a client and we’re asked to direct candidates to a job posting, an ATS landing page or a career site home page, NAS will suggest developing a landing page. While general destinations may be fine for awareness campaigns, they are not ideal for targeting candidates in specific disciplines, promoting an event or hiring for a location – the most frequent “asks.”
Here are some handy rules to guide you in creating an effective landing page. (Or you could ask your agency, like NAS, to do it for you!)
Know your purpose
The campaign you are running determines the content on the landing page. Are you promoting a hiring event for nurses? Are you hiring for manufacturing employees at a specific location? Are you targeting pharmacy techs for multiple locations? Think about your goal, then put yourself in the candidate’s place and decide what you would want to know before taking action. That’s the starting point for your page.
