Every so often we invite our customers to tell their stories. Today’s success story involves Chad Bronstein, founder of Time to Hire. His company connects thousands of qualified commission sales people with businesses who are looking to hire positions in direct sales, in-home sales, outside sales, inside sales, and sales management.
What exactly does your company do?
Time To Hire helps companies of all types find US-based commission only sales reps quickly and cost effectively.
What sets you apart from other companies in your industry?
- Time to Hire is active vs passive recruiting. The current standard for recruiting is the job posting, however candidates typically won’t respond to commission-only job postings. Time To Hire actively searches through 130 million resumes to find potential matches and then contacts them on behalf of their customer. Candidates who are interested will call the client directly where they can book them into individual or group interviews.
- While it can take several weeks to get responses to a job posting, our service works in just a day or two.
- More qualified candidates. Anyone can submit their resume to a job posting. Time To Hire searches for candidates and only interested or curious candidates respond, which leads to a more qualified candidate.
- Cost effective. Our service starts at $399.
Why do you use Bravo?
When we started the company we ran into a lot of skeptical people. Video testimonials help us overcome this objection for the majority of prospective clients. We use Bravo because it simplifies the video creation process for our customer and reduces the amount of editing time on our end.
What has been your biggest challenge thus far regarding capturing video testimonials from customers?
Even though Bravo makes the process painless, most people won’t do a video without some incentive. We offer clients a small discount off their next campaign in exchange for a video testimonial.
In terms of your video testimonial campaign, what mistakes have you made along the way, and what have you done to overcome them?
We were still receiving a lot of vertical videos and adding some additional instructions to our Bravo page solved it for the most part. We also found that using Bravo’s instructional page to coach the customer on the proper format was very helpful.
What benefits have you seen from the video testimonials that you’ve captured?
In our experience, text testimonials don’t do much to enhance your online credibility. When we started doing videos, this problem was reduced by a factor of 80% or more. Another issue we had was people asking for references and bothering our existing clients. The video testimonials have made this issue nearly non-existent.
Do you have any suggestions for how we could improve our product, or featured that you’d love to see?
We’d like to see higher definition videos and the option to automatically upload to YouTube or Vimeo (both please).
Thanks for sharing your success story with us, Chad! You’ll be happy to know that higher resolution videos, as well as YouTube and Vimeo integrations, are features we’re planning on releasing this summer.
