  • Apps are the new websites (free)
    By on February 28, 2011 | Comments Off on Apps are the new websites (free)  Comments

    I think apps are the new websites. As mobile devices become more prevalent it will be important to offer these users of smartphones and tablets a good user experience. The best way to do that is through an app. An app gives your users easy access to your site/content.

    If you haven’t thought about transitioning to an app I encourage you to do so. Even if its just creating a mobile friendly version of your site, that will help your user engagement when viewing from a smartphone or tablet. Its been proven that people stay longer if you have a mobile friendly version.

    Today I launched by first app for sales in itunes for iphone/ipad.

    Its called the ‘hidden jobs app’ and it tracks hidden job announcements across the U.S. in a simple interface that accesses a proprietary database which I update daily. If you have an iphone, I’d appreciate if you download it and give it a review. (.99 cents)

    I think there are lots of opportunities for job boards to create their own apps. Stay tuned for more from me. This isn’t the last of my apps coming out.

    I’ve talked before about how job boards need to get more social. I think DICE’s new Talent Network is a great example of how to do this. You would be well-advised to take some of these cues. Watch the video below for how they built it.

    I just learned about Resumark which offers a pretty decent affiliate program.

    I used to run links from Commission Junction which have some career related advertisers (i.e. Monster) and made a few hundred bucks per month back in the late 90’s, early 2000’s but was never really crazy about some of the payouts. When I came across Resumark I could not help but be impressed.

    When anyone comes to Resumark.com through your link and posts their resume, you will earn $0.50 every time their resume gets downloaded

    When employers or recruiters come to Resumark.com through your link and download resumes, you will also earn $0.15 from every such download.

    So if you dont have resumes or just run a different type of career site maybe their affiliate program is for you. At the very least check out their simplistic site design which I absolutely LOVE!
