Last week I was saying to myself that I needed to get a testimonials page together for the ProBlogger Job Board. It’s on my to-do list (along with 60 or so other things) but today Michael Gray over at GrayWolf posted a post that I think will make a great start. In his post he compared the results of advertising for Bloggers ProBlogger Job Board vs Craigslist.
I think it’s safe to say that ProBlogger’s Job Board won out.
“I started getting responses from both websites almost immediately. Once 24 hours had gone by I started evaluating the applications, and the results were pretty clear. The job applications I got from ProBlogger were consistently higher quality than the ones from Craigslist. The applicants had more experience and were better qualified. At the end of the process, 6 of the 7 bloggers I hired came from the Problogger Job Board.”
Add to that that Craigslist costs $75 per region that you want to advertise in and our Job Boards cost $50 to our global audience of bloggers and you’ve got some decent reasons to try the ProBlogger Job Board if you’re looking for an experienced and qualified blogger!
Also – just a note for bloggers and advertisers – we’re in the process of updating the back end and adding a few small features. There shouldn’t be too many noticeable differences in this next update from the front end but stay tuned for a few ideas that will make the boards more useful.
