Effective Recruitment Lead Generation

Monday, September 14th, 2009

Finding Companies that Are Recruiting First – If your recruitment firm is in a market where competition is high, the last thing you want is to reach a company whose recruitment needs have already been picked up by three other firms. You want to be there first so you can get a head start on the process. Recruitment lead generation assures that you are there first.

Building an Ongoing List – Your list of prospective leads is only as big as the amount of staff time you have to spare. Recruitment lead generation ensures that you have an ongoing list that is updated as conditions shift. You don’t spend excess time trying to keep up to date with 1,000 different companies.

Revisiting Old Leads Only When They’re Hot – If you use a good generation process, you can ensure that your leads are still hot when you call them. You don’t want to call after the position has been filled, nor do you want to call before a position opens up. Know when the right time to contact these companies is and how effective your sales methods will be in advance.

Not Wasting Resources On Cold Leads – Cold leads and wasted phone calls can eat up your staff’s time and put a major dent in your payroll. Recruitment lead generation from an outside company is designed to make it so that you don’t have to worry about this ever happening to you again – the leads are already mapped out for you in advance.
