I got an email from a Snagajob.com rep trying to get me to sign up for their affiliate program. If they actually did any homework they would know I dont promote OTHER job boards on my own sites unless perhaps they appear in an adsense ad. They would be better off targeting career blogs not other job sites.
My name is Lisette and I am the program manager for SnagAJob. I think All CountyJobs could be a great partner to include some of our local jobs and I’d love to see if there are some opportunities between companies. We have an affiliate program that we would love to include you in.
Anyway her email got me thinking back to the early 2000s when I installed banner ads (not on my boards but other career blogs) for monster and others that I got off Commision Junctions. They were my first experience with being an affiliate. At one point I was making a hundred bucks a month off it, then along came Adsense and the rest is history.
I do believe Monster still has an affiliate program (see it hear) and so does CareerBuilder. You earn money on job postings, applications to job postings and consumer product offerings like resume services.
If you are a job board I would be comfortable with putting these on my site and advertising the competition but if you have a career blog that doesnt have its own board you may want to consider these revenue sources. If you promote it enough, have some traffic it may be worthwhile. This site for sale would be a good candidate.
