Comment: Help Wanted Price Slashed
ILW.COM is pleased to announce that we are drastically reducing prices for help wanted ads from $499 to $99 - a 80% reduction. We introduced help wanted advertising in Immigration Daily in response to a query from the Fragomen firm more than a decade ago. Subsequent to that query, the Fragomen firm was the principal advertiser in Immigration Daily for a couple of years. Eventually, however, help wanted ads in Immigration Daily caught on, and a typical issue often carried 10 or even 20 open positions in law firms throughout the country, thus assisting job seekers and employers alike. We set our prices about a decade ago at $499, at a time where newspapers like the New York Times and the New York Law Journal were attractive avenues for law firm job ads and have not altered our prices since. However, the market waits for no one, and various large general purpose online job sites have dramatically altered price competition for online media such as Immigration Daily, an online newspaper. We have in consequence carried far fewer help wanted ads of late. At $99, Immigration Daily once again becomes a competitive alternative and a powerful supplement for law firms recruiting for open positions (we have also historically accepted ads at the same price from individuals seeking employment).
