Adding a post to a manual blog

Recruitment Marketing Public

Blog posts in Recruitment Marketing are made up of content blocks. When creating a blog post, you add content blocks to build up the body of the post. The content blocks are a mixture of formatted text, images, or even videos.

There are many advantages of breaking the blog post down into content blocks:

  • Visitor engagement with the various content blocks can be observed via Recruitment Marketing's heat maps and block analysis. This allows you to determine if specific aspects of your post are resonating with your audience.
  • Media content, such as images and videos, can be easily positioned in line with your post.

When creating your post, it is recommended that you try to break your content down into logical and meaningful blocks.

You can get a helping hand creating your blog content thanks to our AI Powered Content Assistant.
