Social Media Jobs, Turn Your Passion into a Profession

Social Media JobsA few weeks ago I got an offer for one of the domains I own, then I got another, and another. Since they were all through brokers, except for one, I never really had a conversation with any of them to see what they might really be willing to pay, but I did realize I need to start doing something with all the domains I own. So I decided I should just go ahead and finally launch it myself rather than accepting the offer, which was around $1,000.

Fortunately, I remembered talking with JobThreads a year ago, which has since made their service much easier to use and much more friendlier to launch in this way. At the moment, and for the next month, job postings will be free, but after that I hope to start charging some fair fee. So that’s where you come in. What’s fair for a job posting site? Is the $75 Craigslist charges fair?

In the meantime, check it out and let me know what you think I should do to make it better…

    remember started out free, and then started charging. You have to build up the traffic first.

    Absolutely John – definitely starting FREE here too, and then will be running very deeply discounted posts for Social Media Club members. Was thinking to keep it free for paid members for a while too…

    how long do you intend to keep the service free?

    John, as mentioned in my email to you, I am going to keep it free until it has enough traffic and size so that it is worth some money for people to pay. Just checked Google, and it is already the # 4 organic result for social media jobs, behind my friend Josh Hallet’s #1 result

    number 4 is a good location, how about number one!
