We’re all about problem-solving here at Coles Marketing. Creative solutions.
One of our clients that manages senior living communities came to us when they found themselves with a shortage of nurses. This is a nationwide problem, as healthcare is improving and the aging population is growing. Due to the widespread need for nurses, we increased our client’s digital and social media presence, delivering ads that helped further build their brand and compelled job seekers to click on listings.
Rather than relying on standard job websites, we tailor-made one just for our client. This comprehensive careers website goes far beyond offering simple job descriptions. It also includes a detailed look at benefits and several video testimonials that dive deep into the warm, family-like atmosphere of the company and how it has changed people’s lives for the better.
We’re also employing other complementary strategies to drive potential applicants to the new website, including some of the following:
- Customized digital advertising campaign
- Targeted Indeed ads
- Social media posts
- Other career sites that scrape our career site to repost the jobs on their own (Career Builder, Glassdoor Google Jobs, LinkedIn, Zip Recruiter, etc.)
So far, the site has been a great success! And we have the numbers to prove it.
- 14% of first-time visitors take some sort of employment action, such as applying to a job, calling the phone number for more
information or signing up for job alerts if they don’t find an open position that’s right for them.
- Remarketing ads to those who didn’t take advantage of the site initially led to a boost in employment actions last month.
- Since taking over our client’s sponsored Indeed campaigns, the average cost per application has decreased by more than 66%.
Creating this careers website and complementary digital strategies not only helped our client save money and add talent to their team, but it also helped them build their brand. This is the kind of success story we aim to tell again and again.

Designing a website is no easy feat, and standing out from the clutter is crucial to getting ahead. Some designs are fads, but most are sound ideas that improve your website’s overall readability and accessibility.
We’ve compiled our list of top website trends you need to use — or at least attempt — for your website in 2019.
Mobile searching has now overtaken desktop searching for website traffic. If users can’t easily maneuver your website from the palm of their hand, they will go elsewhere immediately. With mobile-first design, the site is created with the mobile user in mind first, but it is also compatible for the desktop user.
Google now recognizes page loading speed is a ranking factor for mobile searches, so making speed a priority is key to having a successful web presence in 2019.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth 100,000. A video can tell a more compelling story than text-based imagery or a simple photo. Grabbing attention from the moment users enter your site is monumental to keeping your bounce rate to a minimum.
The more time a user spends on your website, the more likely they are to convert. And even if they don’t convert, your SEO (search engine optimization) will increase if your average time on a page rises as well. As long as the video is concise and gets your message across with no sound, a video background could be what your website is longing for.
Customer service, customized. By enabling chatbots for your website, the user will feel like they are being interacted with directly. For example, a retail company can imagine their website’s chatbot as an additional salesperson helping users decide as they are shopping. If you have less “boots on the ground” than before, having these bots take care of mundane questions frees up you and your business associates’ time for more strategic business issues.
Large and bold text shapes your website. This may seem like a tiny thing, but it will make a huge impact on your website’s overall look. Do not drown readers in paragraph text — make them see what you want them to see first. Then let them dive in and search around to learn more, if they are interested. Typography purveys the voice and tone you want your company to exude. Do you want to draw attention to a certain product or service? Will your website design lead eyes there or shy away? Be bold.
