The Wall of Fame, over at www.recruitingpix.com, is an industry board that allows individual bloggers, companies, and vendors, as well as anyone interested in advertising to purchase pixels on the site. The site stays up for five years, and the goal is to make it a fun, creative, and cost-effective way to advertise recruiting or staffing services.
Each pixel costs $.20, which means a box on the screen costs $20. And your ad? When someone runs their mouse over the screen, a url you select pops up for the person to click to.
It's been done for college kids and copycats, but this is the first time I've seen it applied to an industry.
So if you want some exposure, click to the site and buy away! At the very least, if you like what you read here and on Recruiting.com, consider linking to http://www.recruitingpix.com, (after you've linked to stlrecruiting.com, of course).
Do I have a financial interest? You betcha- I make a percentage of the sales made to the board - but we figure this is a good way to give out publicity and at the same time earn a little bit back from the time we spend writing for Recruiting.com. In case you don't know, I'm the editor of This Week, Recruiting.com's weekly newsletter, in addition to being an author and a cheerleader for the site.
