  • Try Job seeker Ebooks/Courses for More Revenue
    By on May 21, 2019 | Comments Off on Try Job seeker Ebooks/Courses for More Revenue  Comments

    Generally speaking, it is difficult to get job seekers to pay for anything. But if the product offers value, you can sell to them. Two of the more viable viable products I can think of are ebooks and courses.

    EBOOKS

    When I ran AllCountyJobs, I wrote ebooks for each of the county based sites I operated. Each doc listed the area’s top employers, career advice, local job resources and more. I sold 5-10 of these per month for ten bucks each. Not a lot of money, but it helped make my sites more profitable each month.

    But even if you run a national niche site you can do the same thing. Create a pdf guide for “working in (your) industry” and sell it for $10 bucks. People will buy it as long as the content is of value. You can even use a site like Gumroad.com to sell your ebooks under a subdomain. Gumroad is free, but costs just $10 a month if you want extra features including a custom domain.

    COURSES

    An online course that targets your niche is also a great idea. You can use services like Teachable.com to create one and charge money for it. The good thing with courses is you can charge much more than ebooks. If you created a course for something like “How to Get a Job in (insert) Industry” you could easily charge $99-$299 depending on the popularity of your niche.

    For example, a course like how to get a job in major league baseball is sure to be a hit. Or perhaps even an industry like Cannabis or casinos.

    I like to see job boards have multiple revenue streams beyond just job postings. Sites like JoeProduce.com are a good example of that through its resume service that is a significant portion of its income.

    The team over at FireBrickGroup is looking for job boards to partner with. Specifically around email alerts.

  • JobAdX Helps Job Boards Earn More Money
    By on January 15, 2018 | Comments Off on JobAdX Helps Job Boards Earn More Money  Comments

    JobAdX has recently launched as a new job advertising marketplace that brings together employers and job boards. I have been retained to help them secure partnerships.

    Schedule a Demo | Applicable for job sites that have control of their code. Sites on off the shelf job board platforms won’t be able eligible at this point.

    The simplest way to explain what they do is to call them ‘adsense for jobs‘.  Sign up your job board, place their script in your search results and you will start earning revenue on a CPC/CPA/CPM basis (your choice). Employers then bid in real-time to have their jobs listed. Job boards can show up 5 jobs from their marketplace.

    Our average CPM for a quality publisher $2-3 depending on the slot position. CPC varies anywhere between 0.20-0.40 and CPA $4-6 -Amit Chauhan, Founder

  • Quick Tip to Boost Your Affiliate Earnings

    I’ve been thinking about ways to boost my affiliate earnings through providers like TopResume. It occurred to me recently that job board transactional emails would be a good place to do that.

    So I went into my admin settings for my JobFairing.com site and embedded a link at the bottom as a PS. On their platform you have the ability to edit the email text and easily embed a link/image. These emails are easy ways to increase your affiliate clicks.

  • Maximizing Your Job Board Revenue
    By on October 31, 2017 | Comments Off on Maximizing Your Job Board Revenue  Comments

    If you just make money off job postings it’s time to break out into new revenue streams. I was speaking to a job board owner recently who had not done so yet and was wondering what to do to make more money. “Diversify” I told him. “You need to open up new streams of revenue“.

    With the threat of big companies entering the job search space, today’s job boards must MAXIMIZE their revenue potential. That means selling advertising, using Adsense, Backfill and more. (You can check out my ebook on this subject here)

    Tools like Adsense offer you free money as long as you have traffic so why would you turn that down? Too many new job board owners fail to realize they are running an internet business. Internet businesses only survive by creating different ways to make money. Gone are the days of relying solely on job postings to do that.

    You need to branch out. At the very least you should be adding backfill revenue and Adsense to start. If you have 5,000 – 10,000 monthly visitors that could mean hundreds of extra dollars per month. Thats not a windfall but it adds to your bottom line and makes you more profitable.

    More profits equal a more successful business and makes your site more valuable in the long run.
