  • That quite a lot of exposure for $50! I had noticed a bit on an increase in the amount of jobs, so I hope the job board’s popularity is on the increase!

  • I have to agree with Tom, this is a great deal. Unfortunately, most people don’t have the $50 to invest into advertising.

    Have you ever considered lowering the rate to something that would allow more users to post their ad?

    • Hi James – thanks for the feedback. To be honest I’ve been thinking it’s probably too cheap if anything. Most of the social media job boards going around charge $50-$200 to list a job from what I can see.

      Most of the people advertising for bloggers to work for them have a budget, they’re paying bloggers to work for them, so to pay $50 to get exposure to a 100,000+ network is pretty decent. As an insight, last time I advertised for a blogger I had 90 applicants, about half of whom I could probably have employed if I were looking for that many. Just over $1 per lead is pretty decent in my experience.

      i guess it depends what you’re advertising for – if you just want to find a guest poster you might not pay for an ad, but if you were looking to employ someone to write 10 posts a week for say $500 ($25k per year), a one off $50 ad is probably pretty decent. Some of those advertising are looking for multiple bloggers so it becomes even more affordable.

      In the end I get what you’re saying but I guess I’m looking to provide a service for companies with budgets so think $50 per ad is pretty decent, if not too cheap.

  • Thanks for taking the time to respond to my comment Darren! I suppose I understand where you are coming from – you have a nice site going here with a nice following and thus people are willing to pay the price to be seen by your readers.

    And as I said in my original comment, I do agree that it is a good deal and if I had $50 and were looking to hire a few bloggers, I would more than happily pay to post on the ProBlogger Job Boards.

  • I think the $50 is great value. I posted an ad yesterday afternoon and received one amazing person who exceeds my requirement and another person who fits a role I had which means I won’t have to place an ad now.

    I think $50 is great, but perhaps a premium model where your ads stay near the top or something could certainly fetch more.

  • Hi Darren,
    With the response rate you are getting to postings on your job board $50 is a good deal. Your are offering a direct opportunity to advertisers to promote directly to people who have what they need. Many advertising systems are not as pin pointed. Also, it can stressful to find a person to fulfill a position so $50 to find someone is a good deal and you must have the $50 on hand if you are in the position to hire someone.
    P.S. I like Sean’s note about offering a premium model.

  • I’ve been looking for a blogger job.. and im glad i saw this post cus i didnt know there was any blogger job boards..I guess this is why I love this blog
