Facebook Launches Job Listings Feature in the UK

[vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" text_align="left" css_animation="" box_shadow_on_row="no"][vc_column][vc_column_text] We’re not overreacting here, this is an absolute GAMECHANGER. Recruiters, make sure you’re sitting down… Facebook’s jobs feature has now been rolled out to the UK, allowing businesses to post job openings on their Facebook pages. Applications can be easily tracked, and potential employees contacted via Facebook Messenger. It’s a twist on Messenger Ads, but with a far more structured set up. Interested candidates will be able to hit the ‘Apply Now’ button, and a form will pop up, not too dissimilar to the lead generation form you may be familiar with using. The great thing about this is that Facebook autofills candidate data from their personal profile, but the candidate will be able to add, delete or amend any of the details.

[vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" text_align="left" css_animation="" box_shadow_on_row="no"][vc_column][vc_column_text] It’s been a few months since Facebook introduced Call to Action posts, making it easy for businesses to promote their services with a specific customer action in mind. Accompanied by the rise of chat bots, this opens up a great way for brands to interact with their audience. With a number of options available - call now, get directions, and send message the top three - using these post types is a great way to help your customers contact you quickly and easily. As an agency, the post type we utilise the most for our clients is the ‘send message’ post. When users click on the send message button, it will open up Messenger to begin a conversation with the page. We love the versatility of this post type, as it lends itself perfectly to many different situations, and is perfectly suited to the growing...

This inexplicable headline pretty much sums up our Copywriter. When he's not in charge of client content, he's causing mischief in the office or struggling to be an adult. We sat down with Tim to find out more about his position in the company, and find out what makes him tick. Hi Tim. Can you tell us a bit about your role at DMT? I'm the copywriter, so basically I'm in charge of daily content for all clients. I help to grow engagement on the clients' pages, using a mixture of shared and originally created content. I'm in charge of over 40 clients from different sectors - mortgage brokers, estate agents, apps, hospitality...

[vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" text_align="left" css_animation="" box_shadow_on_row="no"][vc_column][vc_column_text]When it comes to the financial sector, a lot of people worry that it doesn't lend itself well to social media. Well, we've got a number of financial clients on board, and we can tell you that a little bit of personality goes a long way. Rather than simply posting about industry news and financial tips, it's crucial that you show your customers your lighter side. You don't have to stray too far out of your comfort zone, but remember that you are offering a personal service - so people want to see what YOU are all about. One of our clients, Opal Financials, decided to run a pancake contest for Shrove Tuesday. They decided to be cheeky with their name - see what you think of the post below...
