  • BUT, they may not be getting jobs there now but they are already looking for them there nowAnd that can only increase
  • Again its clear that the talent market will drive the talent sourcing function to SM, even if employers are slow to respond!Its clear there is a HUGE opportunity for far sighted employers to get ahead of the pack when sourcing hard to find skillsSM is a channel which can pay off right now and will pay off far more in the futureBut you need a plan!
  • When putting together a strategy I always ask the following 6 questions to enable me to define how it will be used.Target audience – Knowing you audience is key to using the platform correctly. E.g. A white paper would be better placed on a blog or your LinkedIn profile due to it’s audience and etiquette rather than Facebook which is more casual.Time: It’s sensible to set flexible time frames on how long you want people to spend on each platform, this just set parameters to the user but I would recommend you re-asses on a monthly basis how well each platform is doing to how much or less you invest in it Tone: so chit chat is more appropriate on Facebook and more formal tone on LinkedInContent: It is a good idea to brainstorm ideas of content that would be appropriate for that platform. I would also have a look at your website and see what on their could be used i.e. PR, videos, news, articles etc..Sell: This question will be key to a good strategy. Selling on certain platforms will devalue your content and affect your brandExpertise: It is always great to show your expertise but some platforms are more about the social aspect rather than posting volumes of informationI would recommend you go through each platform a create a profile using the following questions but also make sure you decide who will be responsible for the each platform and who can contribute. It defines to the company who manages it so they know who to go to provide content and gives clear objectives to those involved. Starting a strategy without deciding who will run it and who will contribute to it will become unorganised which is essential to gaining momentum.
  • There are a lot of options out there and more and more occurring everyday. I wouldn’t recommend getting caught up in trying to do everything, you will find much more benefit in concentrating on a handful that compliment your companies brand and your marketing strategy.
  • We then established what each one meant to us to make sure we were using them in the correct way Here is how we see the some of the platforms we use:
  • Twitter drives your audience around your platforms, use it to create noise. Put parameters around your chit chatEngage your audience let them get to know you and your company
  • Setting up your pageContentWho to followGenerating followersBuilding community

    12. 12. “the times they are a changing”<br />Not everyone is looking for a job!<br />Why do we invest our search in < 10% of the talent pool?<br />Recruiters failing to attract unique talent to their databases<br />Our talent pool is becoming a talent puddle<br />The “scary” part about recruitment is all about candidates<br />We must change our definition of “a candidate”<br />The future of recruitment is that everyone is a candidate<br />Its up to US to convert them to “active” candidates<br />“Just in time” recruitment is dead or dying<br />“Old Skool” means you will have nothing to offer clients that they can’t get themselves<br />| Enemy of Average<br />
    13. 13. Talent pools and Talent Communities<br />Build communities, don’t rely on pools<br />A ‘Talent Pool” is little more than a static database<br />Typically made up of active job seekers who have approached us. <br />One-dimensional store of data <br />Our “talent pools” are being smashed by Facebook and LinkedIn<br />Talent communities are not static and one-dimensional <br />Often an on-going dialogue between talent and recruiter<br />| Enemy of Average<br />
    14. 14. Talent communities<br />The talent may not even be looking for a job, may have not applied for a job, we have never discussed jobs but has these outcomes:<br />Collaboration and sharing of ideas;<br />Feeling of inclusiveness and belonging;<br />Sharing of similar values;<br />Knowledge and learning;<br />Openness and trust;<br />Engagement and responsiveness;<br />Brand awareness<br />Talent communities is about tapping into passive candidates<br />Is that important then ?<br />| Enemy of Average<br />

    24. 24. Before you invest in Social media or twitter — The 7 questions<br />What are your objectives? i.e. Raise your personal brand, engage with talent, build a community, increase your credibility<br />What is the target audience?<br />What time investment is needed?<br />What tone of conversation will you use to engage your audience?<br />What type of content is appropriate?<br />Is it appropriate to sell?<br />Is it an opportunity to show your expertise? <br />| Enemy of Average<br />
    25. 25. Choose your platforms<br />| Enemy of Average<br />
    26. 26. Facebook<br />Facebook is like a pub - <br />An informal place to talk casually with people on a more personal basis, shoot the breeze, tell jokes, meet people they have never spoken to before<br />But a Facebook Page is like a function room in a pub<br />Benefits: <br />Great for SEO<br />Building a community<br />Creating advocates<br />Not great for B2B, but good for B2C –i.e Candidates<br />| Enemy of Average<br />
    27. 27. Twitter<br />Twitter is like a cocktail party - <br />Lots of conversations going on at once. If you like a conversation, you might share it with another group. High energy. Lots of talking, not much listening. More cordial and polite than the Facebook “pub”.<br />Benefits: <br />Brand exposure /PR<br />Great for blog content distribution<br />Building relationships<br />Creates advocates <br />Build a community<br />Build your expert status<br />Generates candidates<br />Links you with clients<br />Can showcase the best jobs<br />| Enemy of Average<br />
    28. 28. LinkedIn<br />LinkedIn is like a Trade show or corporate conference - <br />More business like. More formal. People are there to connect, work and learn. Know they are on show. More buttoned down. Dress up a little, unlike the pub or even the cocktail party. People know (or should know!) they are being assessed<br />Benefits: <br />Great for SEO<br />Great for blog content distribution<br />Business development<br />Personal Branding<br />Information <br />Candidates<br />| Enemy of Average<br />
    29. 29. YouTube<br />YouTube is like the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras or Times Square on NYE -<br />Anything goes!<br />Benefits: <br />Great for SEO<br />Branding<br />Creating advocates<br />Very viral<br />Many dangers too!<br />| Enemy of Average<br />
    30. 30. Blogging<br />A blog is like Hyde Park Corner in London - <br />Say whatever you like. Audience is fickle - will drift in and out. But ideas are shared and followers found.<br />Benefits: <br />Great for SEO<br />Great for keyword rich, relevant content<br />Attracts engaged customers<br />Attracts more decisions makers<br />Creates advocates <br />| Enemy of Average<br />
    31. 31. Twitter Strategy<br />Target audience: <br />Clients, Candidates, what level, what category<br />Time Investment: Build up from once a day to 2-4 tweets a day (approx. 20 – 30 mins a day)<br />Tone: conversational, chit chat<br />Content: define the chit chat i.e. Business events, company news, industry news. <br />From “broadcast” to “engagement” <br />Twitter drives other social media platforms <br />Link to all other platforms and website i.e. Blog posts, Facebook, press releases, company news, testimonials, YouTube, articles, promotions, events, advice<br />Sell yourself: Yes intermittently – Don’t overly promote yourself, add value – only “hot” jobs<br />Listening as important as talking<br />Show expertise: Yes<br />| Enemy of Average<br />
