Mobile recruitment: your vacancy as an advertisement on mobile websites and applications

Please enable the breadcrumb option to use this shortcode!

Marketing via mobile devices makes it possible to reach potential candidates on-the-go or at home on the settee. Always reaching the desired and most relevant target group. This form of marketing is also termed mobile recruitment.

Reach your chosen target group at the exploration phase of their job hunt; those who are interested will be led straight to the job vacancy page with a simple click on a banner. This gives them the opportunity to apply there and then, or to save the page for later. To remain front-of-mind among this group, a follow-up campaign – also known as retargeting – can be launched. Targeting can be carried out based on:

  • Address level
  •  Time
  • Whitelisting at a sector level
  •  Behaviour
  • Management system and/or provider
  • Language installed on the device

Considerations for a mobile recruitment strategy

Advertising on a mobile device requires a whole other approach than advertising on a desktop. Remember, the screen on which your advertisement will be displayed is only small. Both image and message play important roles. Both need to be compelling, effective and above all, avoid annoying! On the flip side, the possibilities are vast: consider wide impact, 24/7 reach, creative banner ads and targeted reach.

Mobile and programmatic advertising join forces

Programmatic advertising is the automated buying of advertising space. Cookies provide data on online behaviour, which is analysed by algorithms. This provides a wealth of information and makes it possible to bid solely on impressions to people who fall within your target group. Adver-Online also supports this programmed method of buying for mobile recruitment.
