  • Fastest Growing Dental Job Board Seeks Acquisition or Investment
    By on November 7, 2016 | Comments Off on Fastest Growing Dental Job Board Seeks Acquisition or Investment  Comments

    Founded in 2011, but connecting Dentistry & Job Seekers since 2002, DentReps.com is dentistry’s exclusive job site for all hiring & talent acquisition needs for offices & organizations. Our members include Doctors, Specialists, Hygienists, Assistants, Dental Office & Group DSO Administration & Executives, Lab Technicians & Staff. With the acquisition of Dental Sales Careers in 2013, we also work with Dental Sales & Marketing Leaders! DentReps also offers services directly related to hiring including background checks, hiring assessments, & resume review and writing, as well as many others. Additionally, DentReps provides transition services and recruiting services to the industry.

    dentreps

    The DentReps business provides a unique opportunity to enter the dentistry recruitment space immediately and/or expand with revenue streams in dental staffing, recruitment and dental practice sales through the power of the DentReps brand.

    They also offers services directly related to hiring including background checks, hiring assessments, & resume review and writing, as well as many others.

    Why Acquire DentReps?

    • DentReps having at minimum, doubled revenue yearly & working with greater than 10,000 dental offices and organizations, will provide immediate profitable growth to your top and bottom lines. Significant growth potential if you concentrate on sales. $500k-$1 million is a possibility.
    • DentReps will provide the option for one current full time owner employee to focus on sales, existing clients and further business development, to deliver immense top and bottom line growth through new clients and added subscription services – especially recruiting – all while having the ability to utilize the internal resources of any suitor.
    • An investment in, or acquisition of DentReps, will allow any organization to create at minimum, 5 – 12 new practice acquisitions each year to either add to their current portfolio of offices or create an added revenue model through brokerage or simple referral services.
    • DentReps will allow any organization to market or even add their service(s) to thousands of subscribed offices and organizations as current DentReps’ Clients and transactions.
    • DentReps will add an independent, valuable resource and tool to any dental organization (or staffing firm) and their clients from staffing, to recruiting, to transition services.
    • DentReps will provide immediate access & a database of tens of thousands of registered job seekers to any Group DSO, Staffing or Recruiting Firm, but also continue to grow such assets.
    • Founder Peter Cargill intends or will entertain remaining with any suitor and brings a MBA with 20 years of sales & business development – 14 in dentistry, thousands of valued partnerships and relationships and is 100% confident DentReps will grow exponentially under the umbrella of the right organization.

    Key Stats

    • Sales are in the low six figures.
    • Registered candidates are nearing 50,000 seekers
    • More than 25,000 resumes on file
    • 60,000 job postings a year and climbing
    • Nearly a 800k user sessions will be recorded in 2016

    Strategic Acquisition: A strategic acquisition (preferrable) would allow DentReps to come under the umbrella of another company so that DentReps could utilize that organizations infrastructure, freeing up some operation costs and allow me to focus on sales and business development.  All while the buyer could utilize my relationships and “book of business” and hundreds of transactions to expand their services and/or products.

    Investment Will Also Be Considered:  The capital infused through an investment would allow me to build a formal team of people (sales, marketing, recruitment and operations) to focus on top line growth but also allow me to expand the platform to incorporate better, more integrated add-on solutions that carry little to no overhead or expense.

    Contact

    Serious buyers should contact Pete Cargill at 781.987.1365 or email pete@dentreps.com

    “DentReps makes a great acquisition for several reasons because it’s in a niche that never gets old. Dental jobs, like those in healthcare can’t be outsourced, therefore the new owner will have a solid revenue stream for years to come. In addition, the chance to also use the site and its data to provide staffing services offers a secondary income stream that can add tremendous revenue over time.”

  • Interview with a job board owner – Jennifer Schultz
    By on October 30, 2016 | Comments Off on Interview with a job board owner – Jennifer Schultz  Comments

    Last week I spoke at the HR Summit in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It’s an annual event for employers put on by Jennifer Schultz who runs the local job board RecruitmentQueen.com. I got a chance to interview her for my RecTech podcast and got her take on her business strategy, her background and how events help grow her business.

    One of the things she does well is provide a full suite of services that go way beyond job postings. If you run a job board and need more revenue take a page out of her playbook and expand. Holding offline events like she does can prove just as valuable as job postings.

  • AllStarJobs (.com/.ca) is For Sale
    By on October 25, 2016 | Comments Off on AllStarJobs (.com/.ca) is For Sale  Comments

    A longstanding national job board, AllStarJobs.com and it’s Canadian sister site, AllStarJobs.ca is up for sale. They were founded in 1999. This is a package deal for both website properties in the North American job market.

    AllStarJobs job board for sale

    Why Buy? (Chris Russell says) These sites offer a solid level of passive income for the right owner.  You can certainly make more money on job distribution if you add that as a new revenue stream. In addition, these sites have tremendous SEO ranking so if you are good at content you should be able to increase traffic. I would put these on the Smart Job Board platform which would allow you to recreate the content to maintain search rankings. By adding an email marketing component you can also turn up the traffic and boost ad revenues very quickly. The sites give you a foothold in both the Canadian and U.S. markets. The .CA site has the most traffic and offers a great opportunity for anyone who wants access to a large number of employers and candidates in Canada.

  • Monster paid how much to buy the Jobr app?
    By on October 24, 2016 | Comments Off on Monster paid how much to buy the Jobr app?  Comments

    Back in June Monster.com bought a job search app called Jobr. At the time the purchase price was not released.

    I have recently learned that they paid $12.5 million dollars.

    jackpot

    The info comes from this press release put out by their largest shareholder. (I’ll be writing more about that later)… In any case, thats a lot of scratch for such a young app with a small user base. Jobr’s founders must have been dancing in the streets after negotiating that deal. Kudos to them. They built an app, got a little traction and then hit the jackpot. That’s hard to do in today’s overcrowded app world.

    Monster grossly overpaid for this app if you ask their largest shareholder. In fact they called it “wasted” money. Harsh words, but on the face of it they may be right. Monster could have hired their own firm to build something similar for mere thousands. So I guess they value they saw was also the talent being acquired. But that still seems like a lot of money from a purely accounting perspective. Especially from a company (MWW) that is losing money every year. The app itself apparently did not have much revenue.

    Here’s the actual quote…

    Wasted $12.5 million to acquire Jobr, a start-up mobile app with little revenue or specialized technology — MNG priced out what it would cost to develop virtually the same app as Jobr and believes it would cost less than $250k to develop, or 2% of the price paid to acquire it (quote from Media News Group)

  • Create a job board pricing guide
    By on October 18, 2016 | Comments Off on Create a job board pricing guide  Comments

    I cam across a new local job site for Franklin County PA the other day called FranklinCountyWorks. They created a PDF version of their prices that I thought is a good idea. By creating a PDF version you can easily share your sites pricing information and other pertinent details in a way that makes it easy for employer inquiries. [Link to PDF].

    This kind of media kit is something every job board should have on hand. Here’s one I created for AviaNation.com the airline job board. There is a PDF version of this same page so it makes it easy to email to anyone requesting more info.

    Check out this interview (via the Hiring on All Cylinders podcast) with ZipRecruiter‘s CEO Ian Siegel recorded at the recent HR Tech conference. In it he chats about how their job board is evolving and starting to focus more on quality matching. I think its a good example of how job boards can get better at their job of attracting the right applicant to their clients jobs. For my review of the conference, click here.
