  • European Job Site Looking to Sell
    By on January 2, 2018 | 3 Comments3 Comments  Comments

    A fairly large job site based in Europe has asked me to spread the word that they are looking to sell their site and digital assets.

    euro job site for sale

    This is a confidential posting and anyone interested should contact me to get an intro to the site owner.

    Here are the basics to give you some insight:

    • The site has sales of $300k and yearly profit around $100k
    • It serves several countries but is most popular in Italy, the UK and Australia
    • It makes money from Google Adsense, affiliate earnings from Indeed/Neuvoo and postings.
    • The site was founded in 2010 – “Thanks to a significant experience in the field of HR, high quality content care and intense publishing activities, website growth in terms of traffic, content and popularity has been steady and significant.”
    • The owner is available for 6-12 months for full support
    • Facebook pages: various pages (total 75k likes)
    • Push notifications with Onesignal: 100k registered users in last 4 months
    • Multilingual blog with 250 posts

    Digital Assets for Italy Include:

    • 1.2 million registered users
    • 800,000 users with job alert
    • 300,000 registered users last 12 months
    • 600,000 active users in the last 12 months
    • 3 million active Job Alerts
    • Total Italian traffic 2017: 23 Million page/views – 11 million sessions

    Other Country Assets Include:

    • 290,000 registered and profiled users
    • 250,000 users with job alert
    • 150,000 active users in the last 12 months
    • 500,000 active Job Alert

    The seller ideally would like to find an established industry player to take ownership. Interested parties should contact me to get an introduction (or use chris@jobboardsecrets.com). It sounds like an excellent opportunity for the right buyer. Sites of this age with such strong assets are always of value.

  • ZipRecruiter Acquires Popular Job Board Software Vendor
    By on December 14, 2017 | Comments Off on ZipRecruiter Acquires Popular Job Board Software Vendor  Comments

    Jobboard.io, the popular job board software platform started by Christian Malpeli more than 5 years ago has been acquired by ZipRecruiter. The news came via email to JobBoard.io clients yesterday. Terms of the deal are not disclosed.

    I was able to reach both ZipRecruiter and Christian Malpeli, for comment on the news.

    What are the main reasons for the acquisition?

    ZIP: Acquiring JobBoard.io allows ZipRecruiter to provide a more robust job board solution to its publisher partners, and will bring new monetization solutions and higher levels of job distribution within the ZipRecruiter network to JobBoard.io customers.

    Will pricing change?

    ZIP: We have no plans to change pricing for existing customers.

    Will it be run as a stand-alone business or how will the operation be combined with Zip?

    ZIP:JobBoard.io will continue to run as a stand-alone business powered by ZipRecruiter, and we’re already implementing ZipRecruiter features in the product.

    How many job boards does JobBoard.io power?

    ZIP:JobBoard.io has over 200 clients, including major sites like Techcrunch, Politico, The American Association of Cancer Research and more.

    Ian Siegel, ZipRecruiter’s CEO said this about the deal, “Christian and the team at JobBoard.io have built a terrific product, and we’re excited that they’re joining the ZipRecruiter team. We’re already implementing new ways to delight JobBoard.io publisher partners, including having job postings run across the ZipRecruiter traffic network, and there are more great features on the way.”

    I asked Christian if the platform will become a Zip only backfill provider. No, he said.

    “We believe that publishers should have choice in the solutions they use to power their job boards. While ZipSearch allows a publisher to tap into leading search technology and the fastest growing jobs marketplace in the US, we do not plan to limit backfill choices to only ZipRecruiter’s offering.”

    Christian will be sticking around and become an employee at Zip where he plans to continue innovating on the platform and growing his team.

    Here’s my take on the deal;
    The move is a smart one by ZipRecruiter as it increases the reach of their affiliate network thus providing more relevant candidate traffic to its sitewide listings. They will also be able to earn additional revenue by introducing a posting function directly from Jobboard.io into ZipRecruiter’s main listings. This will be the first time a major job site provider has its own DIY job board software service since the defunct SimplyHired launched Jobamatic which died a fiery death after Indeed acquired them  2 years ago.
    I think the move also puts pressure on the other major aggregators like Jobs2Careers, JuJu and Neuvoo to up their game. Those companies have affiliate programs but they are way behind where ZipRecruiter now stands. If I were them I’d be looking at s similar acquisition or partnership with other job board software vendors.
    I have a few sites like HR Tech Talent which is powered by Jobboard.io and will continue to update my readers on new changes to the platform as they come out. As a reminder I provide concierge services to those who wish to start a site on Jobboard.io.
  • 2500 Job Domains For Sale
    By on October 23, 2017 | Comments Off on 2500 Job Domains For Sale  Comments

    Fran Grossman has been buying job related domains for years and is looking to sell off most of her names. So she has put up a new website that showcases these niche domains and is now accepting offers on all of them. Head over to JobDomainsforSale.com and check them out.

    To give you some idea of what they might be worth she has put up some comparison sell prices for other domains that have occurred over the past few years. I would add one more to this which would be Jobspotter.com which Indeed acquired a couple years ago for I think $3,500 USD.

  • Established, SEO rich job site up for auction
    By on August 14, 2017 | Comments Off on Established, SEO rich job site up for auction  Comments

    JobofMine.com has been around since around 2009 and is a free global job board. I purchased the site 3 years ago and would like to sell it to fund other projects. It is now up for auction on Flippa. [View Auction]

    The site was originally developed on a different platform but that became too hard to manage for me so earlier this year I switched it to the Smart Job Board platform. In doing that it lost a bunch of traffic (which I knew was going to happen) but I wanted to start fresh and attract more US visitors. The original site had been coded years ago and it was finally time to evolve it. Site now averages 7-8k monthly uniques all coming in from search engines/social media.

    Jobofmine.com has a Domain Authority ranking of 47 and Page authority ranking of 54.

    If you already own a job related site this is a great pickup. You can instantly boost your SEO with thousands of new backlinks by forwarding jobofmine.com to it. Over 100 domains link to Jobofmine.com

    Buying established job sites in order to redirect is a proven traffic strategy that works. I have done it several times over the years by buying sites at auction. This site also comes with over 45,000 social media followers via Twitter/Facebook/Linkedin.

  • 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.”

    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.
