Here’s an exclusive Infura coupon code.

15 Jul

I get a lot of emails asking for a recommendation on a web host.  So, here’s a dedicated post on my recommendation — Infura Web Host.

Here are 3 reasons why I recommend Infura:

  • Reliability. These guys have been around since 2001, which is a long time.  You know this isn’t a pet project that may close up shop 6 months from now.
  • Affordability. Their default package is $3.95/month for unlimited space and unlimited bandwidth.  Use the Infura coupon code “DavidTang” (yes, this is exclusive to my blog readers!), make that $2.95/month.  Let’s sweeten the deal even more!  Get the annual subscription for $35/year and get a free domain name for life.  Remember, Infura coupon code is “DavidTang” or just use this link.
  • Service. They provide 24/7 customer service.  Beyond that, they also offer paid script installation services, which is great for the beginner.  In fact, they even offer a script installation service for the 300K Job Page Search In-a-Box.

Here’s a lovely testimonial I pulled from their site… [...]

How do I pick a job search niche? Use BLS.

1 Jul

One of the most common pre-sales questions I receive for the 300K Page Job Search In-a-Box is:  How do I pick a job search niche? (That question’s followed with: how do I pick a domain name?)

Like with any site, picking a niche requires research.  In the case of job search, your research should focus on employment data.  And, what better source for that than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)?

A couple years ago, BLS published their projections of employment by major industry sector.  Check it here: http://www.bls.gov/news.release/ecopro.t02.htm

For each industry/vertical, BLS captured the employment numbers for 1998, 2008, and 2018; and then the average annual growth rates between 1998-2008 and 2008-2018.  We want to focus on the 2008 and 2018 numbers.  In honing in on an attractive vertical, there are 2 things to look for:

  • Large employment value – A large employment base means there’s a large target market for our job search site.  I’d say anything greater than 10 million is a winner, which leaves us with:
    • Manufacturing
    • Retail
    • Professional services
    • Healthcare / social assistance
    • Leisure / hospitality
    • State and local government
    • Financial services (this comes in close at 8.7MM employees) [...]

Recently, I had the privilege of being interviewed by Bes Zain, founder of the Reader Appreciation Project.  RA Project is one of the first and, likewise, longest running blogs on the Internet!

In the interview, I discuss one of my biggest projects, NuTang, and my latest project, this one–The Man Who Sold the Web.  I answered questions around automation, niche selection, past mistakes, among others.  You can read the full interview here:
