Frequently asked questions.
Questions about AdBuilder on your mind? Here are some of the most common ones we get asked. And if you've got any unanswered questions just click the button at the bottom of the section.
Most companies are desperate to avoid using a recruitment agency. However, typically they’ll push an (often terrible) advert out to Indeed, only for it to bomb, to then have to resort to using an agency after all.
The reason why agencies will find people and you don’t is because they know how to game job boards. The secret sauce is the humble job advert.
To get your jobs ranking highly and seen by the best people, job adverts have to be structured and written in a way that suits the job boards’ algorithms, and entices the reader to click the apply button.
It’s a science – and if you’re not a full time recruiter then it’s unlikely you’ve ever spent enough time to consider or worry about it.
However this is the key reason why you’re still using recruitment agencies…
AdBuilder solves all of this for you.
It will help you create fully optimised job adverts that rank towards the top of job boards and get the best people to apply.
You need zero recruitment experience to get it working.
All you need is some knowledge about the job you’re looking to recruit. AdBuilder takes care of the rest, creating four fully optimised versions of your job advert to choose from and publish online.
Which in turn will outrank your competition and recruitment agencies, will get more of the right eyes on your vacancies, better people applying and more roles filled first time around.
That’s why we think every direct employer needs AdBuilder, but there again, we’re biased…!
You answer around 20 very simple questions about the job, the remuneration package, the person you’re looking for, the role and the company, and AdBuilder does the rest.
And to be brutally honest, if you can’t answer those questions then your chances of filling the role are pretty slim anyway.
Once the questions are answered, AdBuilder produces four fully optimised versions of your advert – “Formal”, “Edgy”, “Informal”, “Simple” – each slightly different in tone and style and designed to suit differing types of jobs, or to allow you to mix up your advertising if that’s what you want.
The four types of adverts AdBuilder generates have been painstakingly created through 12 years of split testing, and over 160,000 different online adverts to see which formats work the best.
We know that these advert styles are perfectly optimised to ensure that your advert ranks towards the top of a job search, and that they’re written in a way that will magnetically compel your perfect hire to the ‘apply’ button and send you their CV.
It’s really, really easy. You’re going to need knowledge about the role you’re recruiting for and the ideal person you want to recruit, but if you’ve already got a job specification then all of that work has already been done.
Just answer the questions and in less than 10 minutes you’ll have your advert ready to publish.
Yes. You have the ability to tweak and change the final output in the editing pane. AdBuilder will automatically save any amends you make, in case you want to go back and use the advert again or share it with others.
Just signed up? We’ve got you covered. Our Knowledge Base is the place to go to for a detailed, forensic look at how AdBuilder works and how to get the best out of it.
And if you still need a hand after that you’ll have access to email and live chat support fielded by the true pros on our support team.
If you’re on a monthly plan your card will be debited with the required amount on the same date every calendar month. That is your ‘billing period’.
Alternatively if you choose an annual plan, your billing period is then the 12 month period of time from the date you start your AdBuilder subscription.
With both types of packages your subscription will automatically renew at the end of your current billing period, unless you cancel during that time. You can cancel your AdBuilder subscription at any time before the end of your billing period and your subscription will be cancelled when that billing period ends.
You have the option to go for a month-to-month plan, or you can commit to 12 months with one of our annual plans.
With our monthly plans you can cancel at any time, and your access to AdBuilder will terminate at the end of the billing period in which you cancel. You’re also free to upgrade, downgrade or pause your subscription if needed, or switch to an annual plan.
If you opt for our annual plan you are committed for a 12 month period in return for a 20% discount on the normal monthly prices.

Simply because you might be going through a period where you’re recruiting as much, but you don’t want to permanently lose access to your saved adverts. In that situation you can pause your account, and reactivate it when ready without losing any of your team’s previous work.
Yes, really easy. Just head to the Settings area from your dashboard, and then to the ‘User List’.
From there you can add new users by clicking the ‘Invite A New User’ button at the bottom of the page, depending on the package you’ve currently got.
And if you need more licences then that’s easy to sort from that screen too.
