  • FireBrickGroup Wants to Help Boards Monetize Resumes
    By on February 11, 2019 | No Comments  Comments

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

    Send them your daily feed of your jobs and jobseekers.

    • They will create daily behavioral job alerts for your jobseekers with up to 3 of your jobs at the top positions at no cost to you.
    • They will then match our backfill jobs to the search criteria of your jobseekers.
    • Their jobs are comprehensive in scope, geography and number.

    They claim their strict behavioral matching algorithms closely align results to jobseekers keyword searches which will evolve over time based upon crowdsourced results. I have never used FBG but they have been in the industry for a while. Adam Berkowitz, formerly of Beyond/Nexxt, is now repping them.

    Their program shares with you on a monthly basis 50% of all net revenue generated from your jobseekers. You can learn more by reaching out to Adam by phone 215-801-9648 or email adam@firebrickgroup.com.

  • 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
    By on December 19, 2017 | Comments Off on Quick Tip to Boost Your Affiliate Earnings  Comments

    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.

  • Q&A with Beyond.com
    By on February 3, 2014 | Comments Off on Q&A with Beyond.com  Comments

    Adam Berkowitz from Beyond.com contacted me recently to explain what they do for job boards. I asked him to answer this email Q&A for you job boarders out there.

    What’s the history of Beyond.com? How big is the site? the company?

    Beyond.com, Inc. has always been a fast-paced company that constantly strives to foster growth and innovation. Since its inception in 1998, the organization has grown to provide career opportunities and strategic recruitment solutions to over 39 million members.
 It all started on January 1, 1998, when founder and CEO Rich Milgram launched PhillyJobs.com as a free job board serving the Philadelphia metropolitan area. By the end of the year, the company evolved into the 4Business Network, aimed at filling the need for a better way for professionals and employers to create targeted connections. 

Two years later the 4Business Network acquired the 4Jobs.com domain and the pieces were put into place to grow nationally. As the 4Jobs Career Network, under the parent company, Artemis HR, the company continued to develop job board and applicant tracking software that was licensed to other web communities that became part of the 4Business Network. In 2005, Artemis HR re-branded to Beyond.com, Inc., rendering a corporate image consistent with efforts to deliver product offerings beyond those of traditional job boards. Since then Beyond.com has been able to strategically grow its business to become a major player in the online recruitment space.

    Despite the entrance and exit of key players in the online recruitment space over the years, Beyond.com has remained a strong player and is now the fifth most-trafficked career destination in the US according to comScore traffic. Currently, Beyond.com averages more than 1 million new members per month. 

Founded on the principal to improve the recruitment process, Beyond.com continues to solve those types of problems today. Beyond.com is not just a place to search and apply for jobs; Beyond.com helps its members achieve their career goals through a variety of resources, including Beyond.com’s online Career Portfolio, salary calculators and a member home page with a real-time feed of the latest relevant job postings and news based on the communities members have joined.

    What can Beyond do for job boards to earn more money? 

    Beyond.com can help job boards introduce new revenue streams by assisting us in generating new members for The Career Network. Using an XML feed or API, we can feed fresh, relevant jobs to these sites and pay for the users that are driven back to us and ultimately join Beyond.com. We also purchase display and paid search advertising, and maintain a robust affiliate program that allows sites and networks to drive traffic to Beyond.com and get compensated for each new member. (New members must be from the U.S. and interested in looking for a job or managing their career.)

    The Beyond.com Affiliate Program is a method for publishers with US-based traffic to easily monetize that traffic. It’s a self service platform that allows the publisher to sign up, create links, add sub-ids, place 3rd party pixels, and access Beyond.com’s creative files. The goal of our affiliate program is to gain new US-based job-seeking members. The membership is free for the user, and user sign-up is a simple 3-field form. Restricted traffic includes; adult, gambling, incentived and co-registration. The payment period is monthly and checks are sent out on a net 30 basis. To get started, sign up here: http://beyond.hasoffers.com/signup.

    Why should job boards work with Beyond if you are a job board too?

    We can help job boards create new revenue opportunities by tapping into the value of their job seeker audience – which does not compete or conflict with core employer–centric models.
    Beyond.com can also help drive traffic to these other job boards, thereby boosting their pool of high-quality candidates who will respond to employer postings. Better results for employers leads to more renewals and ongoing revenue.
