Measuring the cost effectiveness of your advertising channels

By Mark Stephens

Let me ask you a very serious question; why would you post to just one or two advertising channels when you could post to nearly all of them for one single low cost fee?

At Smart Recruit Online our Talent attraction prices include the purchase of all relevant online advertising media from across more than 4500 channels, copywriting service, keyword optimisation and jobs by email campaigns. And new customers will also be invited to a free 3 month trial of our technology suite too.

Media channels include: All the top 30 national advertising job boards, over 3000 niche channels, social media networks, aggregators and PPC channels and our average cost per campaign last year was under £300 + VAT and our average time to offer was just 16 days.

At SRO we attract a higher number of direct applications and fill more jobs in the UK from advertising response
than any other online fixed price recruitment service.

To discuss your media buying & Talent attraction options with us, get in touch today, either by calling the team on 01908 268368 or emailing us at

Recruiting smarter, faster and more effectively than any other online recruitment service in the UK.
