Make your recruitment marketing efforts stand out by using OnTarget™, CKR Interactive’s personalized recruitment tool. We developed this product to effectively harness the power of personal url, or “PURL,” marketing, and combine the Internet, direct-mail and database management into a very powerful recruitment product. How powerful? OnTarget’s™ open/response rate is in the 30-50% range – far more than the 3-5% of direct mail.
With OnTarget™, your candidate audience is sent a direct mail piece containing a url personalized to each candidate. This web address directs the individual to a personalized web-site which gives a brief explanation of your company and why your candidate should consider a career with you. They then have the opportunity to fill out a short form to request more information. In a few easy steps, you’ve made a lasting, and measurable, connection.
Another remarkable thing about OnTarget™ is its extensive reporting function, which can tell you how many pages and number of times your candidate viewed their personalized site and whether they requested more information. It will also alert your recruiter when a candidate is online and viewing their site. The response alerts can be directed to recruiters in any region, department or other category.
OnTarget™ features and benefits:
- Personalized online and offline messaging
- Interactivity and visual appeal of the Web
- Messaging power and targeted marketing of direct mail
- Immediate communication of response to recruiters via email
- Powerful database for real-time reports and tracking

It's sometimes hard to know if you are heading in the right direction. What you need is a roadmap. PinPoint™, CKR Interactive's total recruitment marketing planning process, will guide the way and help you get where you need to be.
The PinPoint™ process begins when we identify and assess your recruitment challenges and goals. We analyze all of the external factors that could influence your recruitment efforts and then develop a targeted and measurable recruitment advertising roadmap that details how to reach your short – and long-term – objectives. Recruitment marketing programs often lack this type of insight and planning, and are instead reactionary in nature – an approach that can waste valuable funds and resources.
CKR will work with you to update your annual plan throughout the year to allow for changing needs and fluctuating market conditions. In addition, while PinPoint™ is ideal for your annual recruitment marketing plan, the process also works well for your short-term, more immediate hiring needs.
PinPoint™ features and benefits:
- No cookie cutter solutions
CKR will create a recruitment marketing program that is unique to your company and designed to meet your goals.
- Designed to work in the real world
The recruitment marketing plans and recommendations PinPoint™ makes are research based. Its analysis includes target audience research, migration patterns, commuting trends, media use, sourcing trends and more.
- Stay on track and eliminate surprises
Eliminate budget surprises. Annual budgeting tools, monthly budget updates and quarterly reviews are included.
- Share your strategies with management
You get a concise and strategic overview of your recruitment marketing program. It’s an ideal internal tool you can use to communicate with senior managers and demonstrate your department's value-added approach.

Sometimes you need to bring your company to your candidates in a much more direct way – online.

- Easy to organize
Candidates attending an e-Vents event can track the positions they have applied for and with whom they have interacted. They can even have different resumes targeted to different types of positions. Your recruiters will have real-time access to reports that list which candidates posted applications for which positions, applicant status and which individuals from the company the candidate interacted with (via chat, e-mail and virtual business-card exchange).

More privacy equals greater confidence in your company. Some candidates prefer not to be identified in a virtual recruitment event until they want to apply for a position or engage with a company representative.

Most companies understand the value of crafting internal, and external, emails that reflect the true voice and brand of the organization. But there are those which are well-written and those with true character. Which do you think gets more attention?
Whether you're looking to send out an email campaign internally to employees, or a regular newsletter to your pipeline of prospective candidates, CKR Interactive's eMessage solution will help you streamline your campaigns with ease and get them the eyes they're seeking. We'll develop a branded HTML email template for you to use for email communications or newsletter campaigns. Multiple templates can be designed if you wish to utilize a different look and feel for different campaigns or target audiences. This template will be loaded into our eMessage platform and tested to ensure that it opens correctly via various email clients. Once testing is complete, you're ready to go! You can revise your customized templates as needed for each campaign, changing article content, images and more. Features and benefits include:
Personalization and Sharing
- Make it personal by inserting the recipient's name.
- Forward to a friend: Let your recipients spread the word virally and we'll track the results.
- No third party branding - many email solutions tack on large logos and links to promote themselves. eMessage is all about you.
- With eMessage's powerful analytics, track the opens, clicks, forwards, unsubscribes, bounces and more. Plus you can tie your campaigns to Google Analytics.
- All your campaigns and images will be hosted and archived for future reference or use.
- Full control over when your recipients will receive your campaigns.
- Easy list management with the ability to import and export using Excel. Plus, eMessage ensures that you never send to anyone who has unsubscribed, bounced or marked you as spam.
Tried and True
- Test your emails before they are sent to your recipient list to ensure it looks like you want it to and will pass spam regulations.
- Our A/B split testing feature makes it easy to test your email campaigns and learn from them every time (i.e. what subject line gets the best open rate?). You tell us how to decide a winner, eMessage will send the two options to a sample of your list and then automatically send the winner to everyone else.
- eMessage is whitelisted at major ISP's and our team constantly monitors blacklists to ensure consistent deliverability.
