Capitola, CA (PRWEB) August 9, 2006
According to a recent survey of human resource suppliers, HRmarketer members are beating their competitors to the online marketplace and demonstrating a better understanding of the online marketing forum. Trends in HR Marketing: Forays in Marketing 2.0 and PR 2.0, the current research report from HRmarketer, details the current state of marketing in the HR/Benefits industry.
- Reaching qualified buyers, also known as lead generation, is one of the top 3 greatest challenges for non-HRmarketer members; only 7 percent of HRmarketer members said they had problems reaching qualified buyers
- Members are less likely to invest in pay per click advertising, instead opting for tactics that achieve organic SEO rankings
- Members have a better mix of direct and brand marketing-- only 7 percent rely completely on direct whereas 28 percent of non-members are completely reliant on direct marketing
