Recruitomatic struggles with lack of instant success
Ami from Miami has given up on finding new readers.
First of all, he complains, there are so many blogs online that it would be difficult for anyone to find him even if they tried. "The number of blogs and daily posts makes our union here an event that is truly miraculous," he says in a false tone of celebration. But, of course, the Canadian Headhunter disagrees. There are not that many recruiting blogs hustling their goods through the market each and every day. But there aren't that many recruiting readers either. That's the problem.
Secondly, he says, his style is too erudite to lure the masses away from less mentally challenging material. With this I concur. You want readers, dumb it down. "Ten tips to a great resume" should get you a few. "Three things you should never say in an interview." "What do you do if your candidate is cute?" Start writing these -- even in your
bizarre quirky style -- and I guarantee a following.
You might also want to change the name of your blog. How about "Amway". That ought to get a few hits. At least, five months from now when Google starts to pay attention.
