Jim Stroud launches Online Lead Generation Blog
- "The Searchologist"
(August 4, 2009) Industry insider Jim Stroud debuts the lead generation blog - "The Searchologist." The blog gives tips, tricks and strategies about Online Lead Generation and Resume Sourcing. It is ideally suited for recruiters and sourcers seeking passive candidates and sales professionals prospecting new business.
The Searchologist is updated each week and features tutorials, how-to videos, forum discussions and weekly video broadcasts over the internet. It is chiefly written and produced by Jim Stroud, but will soon feature content from other leaders in the field.
"I have been involved in online research and online lead generation for over a decade," says Stroud. "I never get tired of seeking out the next big thing and applying it to lead gen."
Jim Stroud has been using his online research and lead generation skills for Microsoft, Google, MCI, Siemens and several internet startup companies.
"It was my day-to-day to find people who fit a certain profile, build a contact list based on that criteria and then reach out to them about an opportunity. Although I was doing it for recruiting purposes, it's not much different than finding sales leads."
It was the state of the economy that inspired Jim Stroud to launch this new initiative.
"When times are great, people still want sales' leads. How much more do they want them now?" Stroud says, "Ironically, recruiters still need ways to find people for opportunities. Despite the proliferation of resumes being tossed around on job boards, some recruiters are still having a tough time filling positions because many candidates are very risk adverse these days and prefer to stay where they are rather than join a new company."

"Nowadays, a lot of recruiters and sales professionals have to pay for their own training without company reimbursement and I wanted to be sensitive to that when I launched this site," states Stroud. "This is why The Searchologist is priced so competitively when compared to other training programs and/or webinars that teach online lead generation techniques to recruiters."
Webinars on Online Lead Generation for Recruiters average $100.00 and some hands-on training programs range from several hundred dollars to just over a thousand dollars for an all day workshop. In contrast, Jim Stroud offers basic and cutting-edge strategies of online lead generation strategies on a monthly subscription basis. For a monthly fee of $49.95, subscribers will have access to all of the content hosted on The Searchologist blog. (The subscriber fee of $49.95 is an introductory price.) In addition, Stroud has a generous affiliate program connected to The Searchologist. It is powered by ClickBank and pays affiliates monthly commissions.
When asked why he has decided to tie-in an affiliate program with his new site, Jim made the comment, "Recurring income is a beautiful thing. I don't mind sharing the wealth."
