Discovering Untapped Talent on Job Boards

Job boards remain a rich source of potential candidates. Posting your commission-only sales positions on reputable job boards like Indeed, LinkedIn, and niche boards specific to sales or your industry, will cast a wide net. Make sure your listings are well-optimized with keywords related to commission-only sales roles to attract the right talent. Additionally, consider using sponsored posts to increase the visibility of your listings and drive more qualified candidates to your Recruiting Launch landing page.


In order to optimize your time spent on these platforms we suggest implementing an automated merit based strategy. Here’s what that means:


In the job posting put a link to an “assignment” for the candidate to complete. The assignment is to upload a 30-60 second recorded video pitch using a script you provide. Second they will have to complete a personality test and upload their results. Lastly they will finish the form with the uploads. If they complete all of these tasks and submit the form – GIVE THEM THE INTERVIEW.


They have shown some merit by completing the tasks, scheduling the call, show up virtually looking put together then advance them to in person. Job posting boards like Indeed and ZipRecruiter are a volume play. As such you shouldn’t waste too much time here. We suggest automating the process up until the interview hits your calendar for this channel.


Amplifying Your Reach with Paid Social Media Ads

The top sales talent that you want IS MORE THAN LIKELY ALREADY HAPPILY EMPLOYED. By using social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, TikTok & Linkedin, which are no longer just social networking sites; you can tap into powerful recruitment arenas. 


Utilizing paid ads on these platforms allows you to target individuals based on their job titles, industries, and interests. Create compelling ad content that highlights the benefits of your commission-only sales roles, and direct interested candidates to your landing page to learn more about your opportunity. A well-strategized social media campaign can drastically increase your engagement and retargeting opportunities creating you a pipeline of talent and build your brand as a local employer.
