Must-Haves for Measuring Your Recruiting Efforts

About a month ago, I pulled together two interviews about working with trucking influencers to help your recruiting efforts--one interview focused on the business side of things while the other focused on the trucking side of the coin. That show titled “Pitfalls and Perks of Working With Trucking Influencers” is one episode you folks seemed to REALLY like so in today’s episode, we’re taking it one step further by looking at your marketing metrics, especially when it comes to driver recruiting strategies, so you can start to measure the success...or failure….of your efforts. By using Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and your own website, I’m showing you how to measure your online recruiting effectiveness so you can do less of what isn’t working and double down on what is. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Where to Find Digital Dispatch & Blythe:  LinkedinYouTubeInstagramPinterestTikTokDigital Dispatch websiteGot something to say?Have a topic you'd like to see covered?

CEO Things with Melanie Patterson

If you’ve spent any time on trucking Instagram, you likely know who Melanie Patterson is. She’s got her Masters degree, she’s a former ER nurse, and CEO of several companies, so she’s got more than enough chops to now start another division to her trucking company, Integrity Transit, by launching a knowledge center to help clear the air about working in the logistics industry. It was so much fun to chat with Melanie and learn about her career and how she tackles so many different things--all with a giant smile on her face.

Pitfalls and Perks of Working With Trucking Influencers

Since social media’s inception, drivers have had an incredibly strong presence across all channels. Whether it’s Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and now Tiktok, truckers dominate the space. So with recruiting and retention of drivers within the industry being an issue for a variety of factors, I always wondered why carriers and hiring firms don’t utilize influencers within the industry more.Now going back to the show topic….the phrase “influencer” might cause you to roll your eyes. But the quote/unquote word “influencer” has always been around and driven decisions we make. Therefore in this show, I’m pulling two interviews we recently conducted on Cyberly where I got to interview Tom Authenthaler of The Influence Marketer to discuss how businesses can start with influencer marketing. And then we’ve got Wanye Cragg who’s been sharing his experiences on the road as a trucking influencer for years. Show Links: Follow Cyberly on AppleFollow Cyberly on SpotifyTom’s LinkedinTom’s Website: The Influence MarketerWayne Cragg on Tiktok, LinkedinWayne's website: Wayne Cragg PhotographyTips for Measuring Truck Driver Recruiting~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Where to Find Digital Dispatch & Blythe:  LinkedinYouTubeInstagramPinterestTikTokDigital Dispatch websiteGot something to say?Have a topic you'd like to see covered?
