5 simple ways to increase online store sales

The good news is that online sales are exploding. Now, more than ever, people are opting to go for the online marketplace, instead of a brick and mortar marketplace. Why? Cost and convenience are two of the major issues. However, as an online merchant, capturing that online audience and getting those online customers can be tricky.

Here are 5 simple ways to increase your online store sales:

1. Make good photos. Photos are the key to selling things online. Spend time and effort on making your photos good. White backgrounds are usually the way to go.


2. Tell your story by creating a detailed ABOUT ME page.
People want to know who you are and where you come from. That’s what distinguishes you from everyone else on the planet. Your products have a story – make sure to tell a memorable one.

3. Get a Free Trust Seal 
We recommend ScanVerify.com. The trust seals let your customers know your store is safe from viruses. This increases sales and conversions.


4. Promote your online store on Social Media: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, WordPress.

5. Don’t forget in-person advertising. Carry business cards and tell people you meet in person about your store. Even though the store is online, your customers are real human beings who value personal interaction.

CBCJobs reaches 1 million users, becomes major player in job search

There is a new player in the big leagues of job search portals, and it’s radically improving the way we search for jobs. CBCJobs.com, a portal that combines job search and social networking, has reached a user base of more than 1 million users as of March 2011. Launched in early 2008, the site lets employers and job seekers make personal connections.

CBCJobs.com seeks to radically improve the way we look for jobs. While a relative newcomer in the big leagues of job search portals, and it’s already taking a significant chunk of the multi-billion dollar HR  industry.

Imagine looking at a job listing and seeing the name of the actual person who posted it. Imagine being able to add this person to your network, introduce yourself, make an invaluable personal connection and boost your chances of landing a job, all before even applying? You can do just that with CBCJobs, a unique social job search portal developed by a company in Southern California. The concept is proving to be popular – the site has been experiencing tremendous growth recently.

Do not make any mistake about it, CBCJobs is first and foremost a job searchsite. What makes it different is that its users can interconnect, making the environment social, instead of one-sided and private.

Recruiters and HR professionals posting jobs are finding CBCJobs to be more useful than the big job boards. “CBC Jobs has been invaluable to me by bringing in a lot of strong, qualified candidates for each of the jobs I’ve posted.” says Matt, a technical recruiter based in Los Angeles.

Considering the incredible growth that Facebook has been experiencing as of late, it’s clear that users embrace the social aspect of the Internet. The concept of integrating job search and making it social seems to have been just what people were looking for, and CBCJobs seems to be on the right track to take full advantage of its current leadership position in the social job search niche.

3 things you MUST KNOW about technical recruiting

tech job board

Recruiting for technical positions is quite different than recruiting for positions such as finance, accounting, management. With the recent rise of demand for IT professionals, fueled by Silicon Valley’s latest string of hot startups and successes such as Facebook, technical recruiting is hotter than ever. However, the HR professional wanting to jump into the tech game faces some formidable challenges.

1) Technical know-how

Technical recruiting often requires good knowledge of the industry and ability to scan tech resumes to determine if a candidate is a good fit. Therefore, it helps to concentrate on an area of tech, such as ERP, for example, and read up on it to raise your knowledge of the field.

2) Choose the companies you work for

While there are a myriad of startups, they are often short on funds and are very picky on who they hire. In other words: they might be wasting your time. Try to get bigger companies as clients, and you’ll go further with one of them, than with 10 startups.

3) Tech candidates are not desperate

While the majority of the unemployed are desperate for any work, tech applicants are usually picky about who they work for. And this is more true the higher up on the know-how and salary ladder you get. Therefore, you literally have to court the tech talent as much as they have to court you. Have clear job descriptions and be prepared to use email more than phone.
