Hi Friends,
                                              Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.
                                                  There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"
                                       With regards,
                                       Hemen Parekh

PUBLICIZING EXTRANET / INTERNET

29 Dec 1997

PUBLICIZING EXTRANET / INTERNET 

By e - mailing / faxing short message

We could get some publicity if, from 8/10 membership directories that we have recently received, we compile a list as shown in enclosed sheet.

It may take another one year before we are able to create a very comprehensive

CORPORATE DATABASE

Which gives full data on say 10000 companies.

Till such time, a truncated "contact information" as per enclosed list could also be quite useful.

If you feel it will serve any purpose, you may ask sajida to put someone on the job.

FOR E - MAIL or FAX or even LETTER

email address:

I invite you to visit our website www.3p-jobsearch.com

On this site you have access to features like

1. Online JOB – SEARCH (From over 5000 job - advertisements)

2. On - line HEAD - HUNT (From our database of over 42000 executives)

       3. On - line posting of RESUMES (by candidates)

       4. On - line posting of job – ADVTS (by Corporate)

       5. On - line INFOR - SEARCH

For those who do not have an internet account (with VSNL), we have duplicated that entire website on an EXTRANET SERVER in our office. Thru your computer/ modem (and browser)

       dial ---- 022 - 859 5757
       User Id = 3P (password not required)
       URL = www.3p-jobsearch.com

On an average, we have 900 visitors to our site DAILY!

I would be happy to receive your suggestion on how we can improve our site. Please feel free to phone me on ____________________

CORPORATE DATABASE SCREEN

Sajida - Michelle - Urmila - Sheetal - Thakur - Nirmit

One more membership directory is received as enclosed. Earlier, some 6/7 have been received. Another 4/5 are expected. All of these will be kept in library pl. feel free to refer & return by evening.
Those which are on a CD (eg. NASS COM) shall be kept with sajida. Kanshik consults these for giving " Industry Names" to the Annual Reports (Employee - data) before handling over to Sajida.
Sheetal uses these to enter into RED - FILE, Company Name - Product – Industry. When this project covers some 5000 Companies, we shall enter this data in our database. Once done, it will help us to carry - out online "searches" as shown in enclosed page.
This would facilitate Head - hunting.
Let us make best use of these.
CORPORATE DATABASE SCREEN NO # 1
    1. Name of Company
    2. Products
    3. Services
    4. Industries (under which to classify)
        Nature of Industry

Note
(1) Same company - name may appear in different "directories" (i.e. sources).
This could be because
. A company belongs to more than one "industry" and therefore belongs to more than one Trade - body / Professional  body.
. A company has many branch/ regional offices/ plant locations.
. A company could have, both "products" and "services"
. For same "industry", different directories are giving different "Industry - Names"

LAUNCHING OF EXTRANET SERVER SITE AS A "PRODUCT"

26 Dec 1997

LAUNCHING OF EXTRANET SERVER SITE AS A "PRODUCT"

·     Now that our extranet site is ready, we have to "popularise" it. Best way to do this is by advertising in Times of India (along with ASCENT on Mondays - preferably the First - or third - page).

·     I enclose "drafts" of 2 - sets of advts.

       1) Those aimed at "candidates"
       
       2) Those aimed at "Personal Chiefs"

·     What we need urgently is to build up candidate database. That is priority # 1.

·     Once that happens we can invite the personnel chiefs to visit our Extranet to conduct on - line Head - hunt.

So in terms of priority, we need to release the candidate - related advts FIRST and then follow - up with personal - chief related Advts.

·     Pl. carefully study the draft advts. and enter your comments, if any, below each advts. Therefore I will get final drafts prepared.

·     The newspaper - advts are however, an expensive proposition!

·     We must, therefore, explore other "publicity, avenues" as well.

·     I list below some of these

1. Advertise in magazines published by Trade - bodies / professional Institutions (Trade Journals’ / Society mouth pieces)/ Chambers of Commerce etc.

Their advt. - tariff is quite low (as compared to TIMES). We should .

       - Make a list of these

- Write to them and find out their "tariff" as well as their    "circulation" figures.

We must also find out whether the "subscribers" are
       - Individual members or
       - Corporate members

This aspect will decide whether, we should publish

       - candidate - related advts. or

       - corporate - related advts.

    (2) Giving "DEMOS" to Corporate

       - This could be
·     At their own premises or

·     At a hotel where a group is invited

       - "Hotels" are expensive / very expensive

- "At their own premises" would cost us nothing, except our own time. However, we can reach only a few people at a time and it would be a long drawn - out process.

Of course, every time we got to meet a client, we should carry our laptop and give a demo

    (3) Holding Seminars

A seminar would comprise of Personnel Managers from several Companies.

Holding a Seminar in a hotel at our own cost would be very expensive.

So, we should get   hold of some professional organisation to "host/ organise/ arrange" such a seminar, and invite us to give a talk on the subject of "RECRUITMENT ON INTERNET/ EXTRANET"


    Such organization could be

       -Bombay Chamber of Commerce

       - NIPM

       - Indo - American Chamber

       - Indo German Chamber

       - Institution of Engineers

       - CSI etc. etc.

    Let these organizations may

       - book hotel room/ hire projection equipment

       - Publishes the event/ seminar

       - Collect "participation - fees"

       - Bear all expenses

We conduct the Seminar, give live demo and circulate literature / pamphlet / brochure (at our cost). For all of these, we do not ask the organisers for any reimbursement.

We get FREE PUBLICITY.

Organisers make Money.

This is good but how the demonstration can be seen by all at a time. Since when there are questions Cyril has to answer those.

    (4) Distributing Pamplates

    COST

       . Printing cost / 1000
         4" X 8"

       . Distinction Cost / 1000
         Trhu newspaper vendors

(Estimates given by mohmed & Ashok) i.e. 30 Paisa each

It will cost us, say Rs. 3000/- to print 10,000 copies and distribute over a period of 6 months.

These could also be given (handed - out) to all persons visiting our office.

(5) Publicity in Colleges Send - out letters to college Principals asking them to display on their notice - boards.

Although students are our - target - audience, we get no immediate "return"

(6) Ask Newspapers/ Magazines to "review" our site  This is being done. This gives "Free" publicity & prestige

(7) Get "journalists" to interviews Nirmit & Publish such interviews.

    (8) Get TV Channels to Interview Nirmit

(9) Run a live weekly DEMO PROGRAM on IN - MUMBAI TV channel. Convince IN - MUMBAI how they will stand to "gain" thru sucha "LIVE DEMO" program of immense interest to all executive JOB - SEEKERS!

    Please jot down your own ideas in enclosed sheets.

(1) To start with we immediately start sending information about Extranet with our every letter/ correspondence to client & EDS to executive

    (2) In a magazine small ad will not get noticed.

(3) We can print a "Book mark" & distribute amongst the executives attending at diff venues in MUMBAI to start with

    (4) Slide in cinema Hall.

(5) College like NM/ Bajaj/ who conduct classes part time post graduate management courses are mainly the executers at different levels our peon personally go to these institute an say Saturday evening & header the leaflet/ bookmark.

NEEDLE IN TH HAYSTACK?
