What Recruiters Can Learn From Lifecycle Marketing

Like any business so reliant on people, recruiting is difficult at scale. Shortcuts like mass emailing hundreds of candidates rarely works for the hardest to fill roles and can wind up hurting more than it helps.

The challenge is that each and every role you recruit for requires a specific, unique set of skills, experience and personality traits. Finding candidates that tick each of those boxes takes strategy. Every step of the recruiting funnel ought to be a highly thoughtful, impactful experience for a candidate. A one size fit all solution just won’t cut it.

It’s imperative for recruiters to maximize the value of each candidate touch point, not just to ensure that they have a positive candidate experience, but also to guarantee that you’re able to make the best hires by finding out as much about them and their work habits as possible.

The concept of lifecycle marketing is a relatively old one, but it offers useful insights for recruiters looking to deliver outstanding candidate experiences, strengthen their employer brands, and help create stellar company cultures. Here’s how adapting concepts from lifecycle marketing can help you and your team recruit better.
