Any suggestion of how to find that? Using keywords like "how can I" ?
Do you have any tips how to engage with them?
They can include the link to the chat page in job posting, articles, careers page, email etc, like "Apply via Chat"
A few benefits are:
- low barrier to get in touch, right when the candidates are the most interested
- faster than email and more comfortable than phone calls(especially for tech guys)
- no more filling of long application forms
- gives a good impression and stands out from the competition
Push the mobile side of things, right now every recruitment site has a brick wall where the CV upload is mandatory but every iPhone user cannot upload a file - you're solving that problem and then some.
My product is similar to HootSuite, Buffr etc. but by focusing on a Niche (Real Estate) I'm seeing promising traction. By focusing you're going to find it easier to reach potential customers and your product development will be cut down too.
Are you in the UK? I'd love to meet for a beer and discuss, I think this could be huge.
Unfortunately I'm not from UK, I'm from eastern Europe.
We can chat using the tool if you like :)
Right now, I'm selling to retail / real estate (http://www.retailwizard.co.uk / http://www.propertywizard.io) so to get customers I literally go to their workplace & ask them for 5 minutes of their time. I did try emailing as you know, but I have found going to speak to to them face-to-face to be more effective for my niche.
Obviously email works for other sectors, something I'm looking to explore again in the future.
For your product, would it apply for Canadian retailers/real estate companies as well?
Given that I was focused on real estate with my previous startup, I could help you make the connections in Canada.
Another tip I can share is going to meetups of your target customer and building relationships.
We're building something that's fairly overlapping (i.e. landing pages, etc. ) but we're more focused on the marketing automation piece. Good luck!
Have you validated yet?
My product is a SaaS, outbound live chat for lead generation teams.
What pain points does your platform offer that others dont?
