Had the first feedback as to impact on the Jobsite splurge on TV advertising (and other media)
Application levels have increased 27%.(October vs September)
New registrations (Jobsite.co.uk only) have increased 48% (Oct vs Sep).
Searchable CVs are up to 679,000 - with new CVs up over 100% (Oct vs Sep)
It is important to note when discussing media stats that i actually trust these numbers - i can't quite work out whether i expected the figures to be even higher - it was a very big impact campaign.
TV advertising tends to be brand building led rather than direct response but this does show you that the connection can be made between TV ad and searches/registrations (or did they just up the SEM spend accordingly at same time!)
I think the benefits will accrue over a long long period of time and that Jobsite previously probably the lowest profile of the general job boards amongst UK populace will no longer occupy that slot and that this definitely will result in improved long term traffic stats.
