Using Social Media In The Recruitment Industry

Is it possible to use social selling to differentiate yourself, even in highly competitive fields?

The staffing and recruitment space is one of the most cut-throat and competitive industries. Because the barriers of entry are so low, established brands are getting sniped daily. I should know, I have friends in the industry who seem to be working harder now than when they first started their career.

In a market as tough as this, what can you do to stand out?

Laura Tarrant works for one of the biggest staffing and recruiting brands out there. The way she stands out is by delivering exceptional value in the form of content and information. What’s not said in the video is that she’s grown her network nearly 30% in 5 weeks. She’s also finding that prospects are reaching out to her for help!

Again, she does that by having conversations on a medium that her future buyers are already on.

She’s had some HUGE successes recently. Check out the video below to learn more.

The Bottom Line

Even in the most competitive industries, social selling can and does work. The reason is simple: you’re adding value to future buyers in a way that’s meaningful and lasting.
