Play the Long Game with Recruitment Marketing
Research shows that the best candidates in the market tend to be passive. They are comfortable in their current role and are not actively looking for a new position. However, 80 percent of both active and passive job seekers are open to hearing about new opportunities. Engaging with this hard-to-reach talent can be a challenge, but the key to conversion is to build a long-term relationship and convince them over time that your organization is the right fit for them.
Identify relevant recruitment marketing content for your target audience. Develop an engagement plan that takes advantage of your employer branding storytelling content, and automate relevant drip campaigns for different talent pipelines to keep them engaged over time.
We're changing our way of thinking. We've moved away from a transactional, one-time interaction with candidates, to fostering fruitful relationships over time with ongoing outreaches.

- With Avature you can add eye-catching content, such as videos, to your fully branded email templates to maximize impact.
- Avature workflows allow you to define exactly how you would like engagement campaigns to play out over time. Once you have decided on the candidate experience you’d like to deliver, automate the process – freeing up time for recruiters to personally reach out to candidates that fit your organization and are interested in what it has to offer.
- Leverage your candidates’ preferred recruitment marketing channels to initially engage your audience. With Avature, you can choose from SMS, landing pages, career sites, emails or social media to get candidates’ information.
Posting jobs and skimming through resumes no longer works for the jobs that we have. You’ve got to go out into the marketplace and find [candidates]. And once you find them, even though you may not have an open job today, you need to engage with them, and you need to have the tools to do that. Traditional ATS systems are not set up for that — Avature is.”
