More than one-third of all new marriages start with an online introduction. If social media is a valid place to meet your mate, you can bet it’s also an ideal spot to meet your next best employee.
A strong online brand will establish your company as a leader, and is a lucrative way to expand your network of possibilities. You can connect with customers and clients all over the world, but you can also solidify your reputation with potential employees. Online doesn’t just mean a website anymore. To build a robust online presence, you need to address social media, too.
Tap into new ideas
If your sales have slumped or it has been ages since new technology has come into the plant, it might be time to bring in new perspectives. A strong online presence connects you to high-level executives, ones with innovative ideas about how to help companies grow. Your website and social media posts have a ripple effect, exposing your company to a wider audience, filled with top talent you might not otherwise meet.
Be active and consistent
An empty, outdated website or LinkedIn page is honestly worse than no online presence at all. If a potential employee checks your website to submit an application and sees you haven’t updated since 2002, they may be inclined to think that you run an outdated workforce. Top talent want to get excited about working for an employer. By creating a strong brand online, you will draw in talented candidates out in the real world.
