Yesterday, we released an in-depth interview with interactive media specialist, Reg Hamilton. In the interview, Reg shared some key strategies for social media branding and Facebook recruiting. We love posting articles like these, as real-life examples of businesses utilizing Facebook and social recruiting are more useful to our client and reader-base than any other type of content.

Our previous post about Gordon Food Service, and their use of Facebook for branding and recruiting, was one of our most successful articles. In that interview, Dave Wiltjer outlined real-world strategies that GFS has used to great success. Most of our readership is employers and recruiters looking to hire for small to medium-sized businesses, and as such, advice from Forbes, based on the best practices of Fortune 500 companies, is far less applicable than the straightforward, down-to-earth strategies laid out by Dave and Reg.

And strategy matters.

In a recent piece for Inc., Eric Schurenburg wrote:

“Strategy is not complicated, or impractical, or disconnected from reality. And it’s certainly not optional.”

I think our recent articles, on both Gordon Food Services and Phoenix Group’s Think Saskatchewan Jobs campaign, show just how true those words are.
