The world of blogging has exploded in the past few years and everyone seems to have a blog now. There are currently over 14 million blogs on the Internet and an estimated 80000 blogs being added every day. Moreover, there are approximately 25 billion pages viewed each month and 500,000 new posts every day. So, if blogging is not already part of your business strategy you should definitely consider adding it – it will provide online visibility for your business in a more efficient way than other methods.

But, how does blogging work in the recruitment industry?
A few years ago, many recruiters and recruitment businesses were shying away from blogging most probably because they didn’t really understanding the benefits that can be derived from using blogs to build client relationships online and to attract an audience that otherwise would pass them by.
But, lately, more and more recruiters have started to realise that, in a very competitive recruitment industry, blogs can hold great power in achieving effective results. So they’ve started to focus more on blogging to build relationships with you, the corporate client, and get you to come back to them again and again, whenever you’re looking for recruiting advice and tips as well as talented candidates.
You’ve probably noticed that there are lots of recruitment blogs on the Internet now which usually give insights into thought leadership, candidate attraction and engagement, employer brand, social media recruiting, interview best practices, industry news etc.
Use this very useful content to your advantage to lead your business to success. After all, it was written by recruiters with your needs and interests in mind and, of course, to drive business results. It’s a win-win situation!
