Tips to Skyrocket Your Association’s Job Board Revenue

At the top of every association’s priority list is growing non-dues revenue and driving more member engagement. But how do they do it? We’ll fill you in on their secret: a successful career center.

The constant evolution of career centers has made them the go-to career development destination for association members. Not only that, but career centers generate revenue from industry employers who pay to post jobs to access your association’s highly valued members.

Today, there are more opportunities to bring in revenue from your career center than ever before. You need a competitive advantage over sites like Google, Glass Door, ZipRecruiter, and LinkedIn to maximize your revenue from employers who use your association to access talent.

So, where do you begin?

Marketing Mastery

Use dedicated job board marketing that focuses on driving engagement, traffic, brand awareness, and revenue. Ensure your job board is successfully providing strategic and effective marketing and lead generation strategies. These efforts will drive job seekers and employers’ paid jobs to your job board. ​Your marketing should strive to answer the questions:

  • What exactly are we trying to achieve?
  • Do we have the resources we need?
  • What impact should our marketing have on our association and its members?

Successful Sales

Look for a job board provider with a sales team that will offer you the ability to:

Save Money: Associations typically cannot financially support having a dedicated sales staff solely for their job board.

Save Time: Many employers need partnership packages built based on their needs, which requires more manual work than association staff may have time for.

Expand Market Reach: Niche career centers typically have very low market share – between 0-10% of the newly open industry jobs – so a dedicated team is necessary to prospect and bring in the other 90%.

Reach Employers: Associations don’t typically have a way to identify and contact employers that need their members to fill roles.

Leverage Agencies: Build relationships with large recruitment agencies who will pay to reach your highly sought-after members.
