  • Another place to list your job board
    By on March 7, 2017 | Comments Off on Another place to list your job board  Comments

    On top of my job board directory on CareerCloud I just discovered another place to list your job board for free. Its called SimplyCareer and they have a nice looking directory. Get listed here.

    As a job board owner you should be constantly seeking out other sites to get listed on. It’s an important SEO tactic to get other relevant sites to link to you.

  • Here’s how to auto-publish RSS to a Facebook Group
    By on January 24, 2017 | 1 Comment1 Comment  Comments

    Automating your social media is an important part of any internet business. Many have asked me for help in this area. One of the most common questions I get is about automating content to Facebook job groups. For the longest time I thought there was no way…but there iswith a catch.

    You can automate content to a Facebook group BUT you must have Admin rights. Regular members can’t do this.

    Recently I switched to using Dlvr.it a social media management tool. When I began to connect my social accounts I noticed that they included any groups on Facebook that I was an Admin for. Eureka! So if you want to auto post to your own group I suggest creating and growing your own or convincing the group owner to let you do so.

  • Amplify your Content with my Social Media Content Ring
    By on November 22, 2016 | Comments Off on Amplify your Content with my Social Media Content Ring  Comments

    I am looking for a few job boards to team up with me in what I call a “social media content ring“. The goal is to help each participant to increase views on their blog content by having each member of the ring auto publish the other’s content.

    I am already working with a number of sites like Job Monkey through my CareerCloud site.

    Here’s how it works. To participate you will need access to a social media tool like Buffer, Dlvr.it or Meet Edgar.

    1. Exchange RSS feeds with CareerCloud.
    2. CareerCloud will auto-publish your content to its Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin channels.
    3. Your site auto-publishes the CareerCloud feed to its Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin channels.
    4. We all get more exposure!

    Now I have a few limitations. I am only willing to partner with established sites who have at least 1,000 social media followers. Your Content must be job search related and not be spammy. Career Coaches are also a good fit who write on their blog. You must also have channels on the big 3 – Facebook/Twitter/LI.

    Contact me to get started.

  • 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.

  • Designing your job board newsletter
    By on September 19, 2016 | Comments Off on Designing your job board newsletter  Comments

    If you run a job board I hope you are actively emailing your users. I once talked to a job board owner who had collected 100,000 emails since 2002 but never ever emailed them anything. What a waste. If you ever plan on selling your site one day you’d better have a nice big email list. Your list is perhaps the best marketing channel you have to drive traffic and revenue.

    The other day UXjobsboard sent me their newsletter and I thought it was a good example to share with my readers since it does a pretty good job of highlighting important news and information. You would do well to follow their example. And if you don’t have a newsletter yet, get on it. I recommend Mailchimp.

    Header area: lead with your logo. Also list the basic links for posting or finding jobs. The first piece of content are the latest jobs which helps show off the site’s latest content. Doing that each week keeps the site “fresh” in the eyes of the reader.

    UX1

    Browse all jobs button takes readers right to all the latest jobs. Latest profiles shows that new users are registering on the site.

    UX2

    Big buttons help to encourage other users to create a profile. Links to related content and industry events.
