    Hi,

    I have lots of traffic from people wanting jobs. Any suggestions on how to monetize this traffic?

    I was thinking in terms of an personality test or background check affiliate program, but haven't found any yet.

    Any god ideas?

    God ideas? None. I'm not that wise yet.

    You could charge a small fee to the employment seekers, and find employment for them. It's a win win win.

    • You can suggest good affiliate products to them where they can make money or find small jobs.
    • Create a website that helps them find jobs that they would be best suited for.
    Unethical


    • [*=left]You can suggest Tube Launch to them and tell them how much fake money you make with it.
      [*=left]Create a website that helps them find easy jobs that they can get but are not best suited for, that way they always come back to your website to find another job (think of it like college).

    Just by browsing through offervault.com you can use app installs and resume offers to monetize this type of traffic.

    There are other ways to monetize this niche as well but it's a bit blackhat and may present ethical concerns. I'm not really too fond of doing this type of method because I don't have the stomach for it.

    If you want to, you could do the following for great commissions:

    1) I-Frame a CPA offer that requires a mailing address with the pretence of sending them an application form.
    2) I-Frame an email submit CPA with the pretence of registering their email address with your HR team so you can email them an application form.
    3) Offer a "download now" link, which looks like a link to download the application form, but is infact a PPI offer
    4) Send them to a PPD offer, with the pretence of downloading an application form.

    Now, here are the potential pitfalls:
    1) It is more of a churn and burn method - no long term cash
    2) You will need to either find an incentives allowed CPA company, or rotate the offers to keep the conversions low
    3) You will also need to send some junk traffic to the offer in order to keep the conversions low.

    These methods are pretty solid and will work if you take action and cover your tracks as much as possible.

    Don't be greedy, get in, get paid and get out.

    I forgot to mention one benefit of using the ethical approach: if the visitors are satisfied with the job they've received,they'll be more likely to recommend it to family and friends (which means more traffic, more money, and more people to help). :)

    There are lots of job portals. Talk to a marketing manager responsible for the traffic.
    1) Ask him to run a banner.
    2) Integrate with their site and go for CPC model
    3) OR both

    I am pretty sure you can get more money than adsense if you hit the right portal.

    If they are targeted from a specific area why not just create your own job hunting website and direct traffic to the website.Choosing how you want to monetize is up to you.You could go the Adsense route if you have a lot of traffic.Or you could promote CPA offers.Just a thought.

    Employment agencies must have affiliate schemes, no? Worse case scenario is using a 'Refer a friend' scheme, where you get a couple of dollars. Also try to get them on a mailing list.
