Targeted Email Campaigns

One of our most exciting tools for employers who have difficult or large hiring needs is our ability to deliver a plain text or HTML (graphical) email -- often referred to as e-cards or email blasts -- into the inboxes of tens or even hundreds of thousands of highly targeted students and recent graduates who have told us or one of our network partners not just once but twice that they want to receive emails notifying them of opportunities for which they qualify.

Many of our competitors only ask their users once if they want to be emailed. Those are single opt-in lists and their quality is okay. Still other competitors will email their users unless the users specifically say otherwise. Those are opt-out lists and have been shunned by all quality marketers for a decade or more. Our list is double opt-in -- the highest standard in the industry -- as the candidates must affirmatively request to be on the list and then must affirmatively confirm their subscription request by responding to our follow-up email.

Want to be sure that your message will be well received? We do too so we will work with you to select the recipients through any combination of 700 fields of data including school, geography (right down to the zip code), major, GPA, diversity, year of graduation, occupational field, and more.

Why do we take the huge, difficult, and costly extra steps required to build and maintain a double opt-in list? Because we want to make sure that every candidate we contact wants to hear from you so that you are always seen in a positive light. We can’t think of a better way to reach thousands of pre-qualified candidates quickly and effectively, can you?

Pricing:

The gross cost is based on the client providing the final creative. Targeted emails can be sent as plain text or a graphical email (HTML) with no price differential. Our pricing is for emails actually delivered, making us stand apart from other email lists.

  • 0 to 50,000 plain text or HTML = $2,250
  • 50,001 to 99,999 = $45 per thousand
  • 100,000 to 249,999 = $42 per thousand
  • 250,000 to 749,999 = $35 per thousand
  • 750,000 to 1,499,999 = $30 per thousand
  • 1,500,000 or more = $25 per thousand

Follow-up Discount: There is a 50 percent discount for follow-up emails which have the identical subject line, targeting, and creative. The follow-up emails must be purchased prior to the first deployment.

Likely Response Rate: We guarantee 100 percent delivered emails and typically see an open rate of at least eight percent (almost double industry average) and a click through rate of at least 13 percent (almost triple industry average).

No Contracts: No contracts to sign...unless you want one. Most of our new clients purchase a targeted email campaign, job posting ad, or banner ad and don't sign up for some ridiculous, annual package like some of our competitors force upon their clients.
