Recruiting – A better way

There has been a shift in recruiting and companies need to get on board. If you’re a company that needs niche workers (nurses, electricians, lab techs), you need to start thinking differently about your hiring process. The bad news is that you need to treat your job candidates as consumers. You need to sell them on your work environment, growth potential and compensation package. For workers in the medical and IT sector, there are simply so many opportunities for them to choose from. You are competing against other companies for employees that can make a difference to your bottom line.…

Geofencing – Recruitment – Nurses

NPR recently reported that John Hopkins All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida was turning to geofencing as a tool to recruit nurses. They're targeting nurses at rival hospitals (geo-conquesting) and their homes (geotargeting). After years of trying traditional outlets (newspaper, radio, and recruitment firms) John Hopkins decided to go another route. Guess what.   "We have invaded their (Nurses) space in which they live and work, so it's a much better use of our dollars," the hospital administrator was quoted. "We're not just throwing out a wide net and seeing who comes through the pipeline." Compared to traditional advertising John…

Geofencing – Off-Campus Housing

Mobile Marketing is a perfect fit for companies that own off-campus housing properties. College students are a great demographic for geofencing.

Geofencing – It’s The Data Stupid

In the bad old days (yesterday) the client would receive a weekly report regarding their mobile campaign. It was four lines showing the number of impressions along with clicks. That was it. If you wanted to dig deeper into the numbers you would have to beg your sales rep to go to some special backroom where the engineers compiled such information and eventually be told no because they just didn't give out this information. #sad. Now life is better. Granular data reporting shows the client a wide range of trackable parameters. Why is granular reporting so important? Optimization - granular…

Geofencing – Tracking In-Store Traffic

Mobile geofencing has offered retailers the ability to target smartphones using a geofence and place offers in tagged smartphones. If a user clicks on the retailer's ad their ID would be placed in a retargeting folder for a future campaign. The KPI has been click thru rate. The higher the click rate the more successful the campaign. If you compare mobile advertising to newspaper, radio and out of home advertising the better outlet is clearly mobile.
