Deep Release: JobCoin Launches JobCoin Network
Websites add highly relevant job listings to their site and get paid
JobCoin announced the launch of the JobCoin Network—a service for employers to post jobs and reach millions of passive job seekers by targeting them on the websites they already visit and for website publishers to earn revenue by easily including relevant job listings on their site. This is perfect for blogs, industry news sites, and trade association sites. In minutes, website publishers can add the JobCoin widget to their site. JobCoin includes relevant jobs in the site's widget and then pays the website when their visitors apply to these jobs. Indeed.com, the most comprehensive search engine for jobs, is providing its job search results to the JobCoin Network. The website's visitors benefit from job listings that are highly relevant to their interests and publishers maximize the revenue potential of their websites.
The JobCoin Network offers employers an unprecedented ability to target passive job seekers. Employers simply visit www.jobcoin.com and post a job; the process of targeting candidates is entirely automated. Through a detailed analysis of our partners' website's visitors, JobCoin places the posting in front of targeted professionals resulting in an extremely high percentage of qualified applicants.
To get started, website publishers can visit www.jobcoin.com to create an account. Accounts are activated instantly. To start receiving revenue, the publisher copies and pastes a small piece of HTML onto their web pages. Once the job board is up and running, publishers may customize their job board as much as they like, even creating an entire new section of their website. Publishers always have full control over the jobs displayed on their site, both by removing individual jobs and creating rules to filter by keyword or geography. To monitor performance, JobCoin provides traffic and earnings reports.
Once website publishers create a JobCoin account, they have instant access to the millions of jobs included in the Indeed search engine enabling website publishers to select the perfect jobs for their sites. JobCoin continually monitors each website to optimize the relevance and effectiveness of job listings to provide a 100% automated solution for website publishers.
"In providing job search results from the Web to the JobCoin Network, we are helping JobCoin's partner websites give their users a superior job search experience," said Paul Forster, CEO of Indeed. "JobCoin's custom job board offering is an attractive option for publishers that we are glad to be part of."
"We've been working closely with hundreds of website publishers, both large and small, to create a service that is incredibly easy for publishers to use, yet provides all the flexibility and control that website publishers want," said Keith Schacht, Founder and CEO of JobCoin. "By creating a revenue-generating service that website visitors actually appreciate, JobCoin strengthens the long-term business potential for millions of online publishers, and provides an incredible new tool for employers."
To further increase the effectiveness of its service, JobCoin has implemented FeedFlare, a popular social media feature created by FeedBurner Inc., the leading provider of online media distribution and audience engagement services. JobCoin's customized FeedFlare makes it easy for more than 377,000 FeedBurner publishers to display and share relevant JobCoin job listings within their feeds. Millions of online consumers choose to read their favorite website's content via RSS feeds and this lets them read JobCoin postings via this feed.
In addition to creating an account at www.jobcoin.com, website publishers with more than 5 million page views per month may be eligible for premium JobCoin service which includes a dedicated account representative and personal assistance setting up and optimizing the website's job board.
JobCoin helps employers reach their ideal job candidates and provides website publishers with a new source of revenue by including highly relevant job listings on their site.
