Tell me if this sounds familiar:
You guided your team to build a nice‑looking recruiting website that highlights your experience, your strong network, your managing partner(s) credentials... plus you added a big handshake photo.
Wham bam done!
Where are the employers searching for recruitment firms? Where are the top-tier applicants, looking to get hired? Would spending a whole lot more on LinkedIn ads make any difference to your bottom line?
If you're being honest with yourself, has online advertising made you back more than it cost?
Let's be clear: the problem is not your website (probably).
Your firm's website likely hits all the right bases already, or close enough. The real culprit is your visitor → lead → client capture process. To get real results, this flow must be organized, so that you capture potential clients and ignore tire-kickers.
But up to now, you've been spending money to attract the unhelpful kind of online eyeballs to your business, and then putting a contact form in front of them and hoping for the best.
As you've discovered, for a recruitment consulting firm, putting out an online shingle in isolation, with no background processes, fails to attract high value clients. It results in a weak list of prospects, an anemic close‑rate, and, if you've been spending money on LinkedIn ads... a metric ton of wasted dollars.
Yes, it takes a bit of time to hit your stride.
Second to your desire to get your online efforts to pay off, the other important ingredient is the patience to learn what's bringing in clients, and the strength to eliminate what's not.
Often all it takes to rescue your online investment is to talk to the right person at the right time and get handed a checklist of where your client-acquisition process is leaking.
Learn exactly how to get your website to pay off by automating the way you bring in leads, how you qualify them, how you segment them, and how you guide your ideal subset into doing business with you.
Book a Discovery session or tiny fixed-scope "Recommendation" engagement with me now. Why?
And I complete most projects in weeks, instead of months (because I only do one major project at a time... with my own brain/hands, not by outsourcing to some team on the other side of the planet).
Brad Hughes is the cofounder of a premium network of top-tier accounting freelancers, based in Atlanta, GA. Here's what he had to say about our work together:
There's always a barrier to working with 'some guy from the internet' before trust is built. Dima quickly earned our trust before we even started working together through valuable advice, sending mockups, etc. that overcame this barrier.
Since then Dima has added substantial value to our company beyond the scope of the specific projects we've contracted him.
And here's Todd. He's an Enterprise Sales Exec at Snagajob who started a local business together with his wife in Richmond, VA.
A friend of mine had just finished a project with Dima, and that's how we got started working with him. Dima helped us focus on the essentials of our site.
I've already referred another friend of mine, and they're happy with him too. I'll recommend Dima to anyone who needs an expert web developer.
Start small & simple. I offer a number of mini fixed-scope engagements, which span the gamut from DISCOVERY to RECOMMENDATION CHECKLISTS to IMPLEMENTATION PROJECTS.
Our goal is to shape up all your online efforts into tightly automated client acquisition SYSTEMS that integrate with your normal business processes. We do this step-by-step.
DISCOVERY packages are an inexpensive (< $150) and quick introduction to what it's like to work with me. Together we discover and analyze why your online efforts aren't converting into recurring clients, and where the points of failure are.
RECOMMENDATION CHECKLISTS† are deliverables that arm you with incredibly detailed, step-by-step documents that you can pass immediately to your developers. These go point by point to explain in technical detail what actions need to be taken to fix up your website, add missing elements to your online marketing funnels, and get you more clients. You even get graphical mockups if needed.
† These plans are so detailed that even a "newbie" developer would be able to follow them effectively.
Once you've got your battle plan laid out, you might prefer a dedicated web consultant to implement those online marketing fixes rapidly and without mistakes.
At that stage, if you purchased any of my discovery packages or recommendation packages, I offer IMPLEMENTATION services for when you really need an expert to go the extra mile.
Are you ready to take the set of actions that'll ramp up how many recruitment clients get generated by your consulting website?Apply to work with Dima.
I'll ping you within a day and we'll determine whether my work can help you turn your online efforts into a much bigger win.
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
I'm a consultant just like you are. STEP 1 with any client is identifying whether you really need help, and whether I'm the person who can help you. Determining that is FREE.
At worst you'll come away with a number of todo-items for some quick wins in your online marketing.
If we work together on a DISCOVERY or RECOMMENDATION project, I’m so sure that I can provide at least one piece of high-value actionable advice that I offer a 100% money-back guarantee.
If at the end of our work you feel you have not gotten your money’s worth, just let me know and I’ll refund your payment in full, zero hassle.
Let's be candid: in your consulting work, you don't want any unsatisfied clients out there in the world and neither do I. That's why I go the extra mile to ensure you're not wasting your time.Apply to work with Dima.
I'm Dima from Canada. I'm a nerdy programmer, but I'm also a business owner. I have real-world experience successfully applying automation technology in the ways that fill up consulting lead funnels, without costing an arm and a leg.
The resulting value my work generates lets me take on a smaller number of projects, and spend part of my time traveling in Europe, Asia, and North America (wherever there's a high-speed internet connection). I've been working and traveling for years.
I consider it my mission to apply the 80-20 rule to every aspect of my life and my work, and to build tools that let recruitment consultants do the same.
Care to join me? You’ll be glad you did.
Here's Brad again:
We've recommended Dima to others because he's been incredibly valuable to our business, so we know that referring him will reflect well on us.
About 3-5 minutes, typically. A couple of the questions are pretty detailed, to help me avoid wasting your time once we jump on our FREE initial discovery call.
I will review your application and reply via email with a couple scheduling options for our FREE 10 minute chat. Response time is usually about one business day.
Life happens. We can reschedule one time, still at no cost.
Don’t be. All information you share with me is kept in the strictest confidence. I’ve been consulting with companies that live and breathe intellectual property. If I had loose lips, I’d have gone out of business years ago.
No. For small self-contained engagements, it makes little financial sense to get lawyers involved.
Everyone needs help. Even I ask for outside help when it comes to applying these same things to my own business. It’s just too hard to see the water when you’re swimming in it.
In my experience, many aspects of business growth are more or less universal, and there are tons of marketing automation tools that recruitment consultants reach their goals. The trick is knowing which to apply and how.
If your business is so unusual that tried and true principles cannot be applied to it, it might just be a bad model for automated growth. I will help you determine candidly if this is the case.
No. This is strictly a 1-on-1 engagement. You are welcome to record the conversation to share with your business partner after the fact. If you would like to do live group work, we can talk about expanding our scope after our initial Discovery session is complete.
My tactics are designed to deliver results as quickly as possible with the least amount of effort.
I’m a big believer in the 80/20 rule and gaining momentum with small wins that have big impacts. You should expect to see measurable progress in as little as a few weeks but big changes to the way you acquire recruitment leads typically take months to register.

No problem! Please shoot me an email at [email protected] or use the chat box on this page to see if I'm online right now.
You’re running out of web page! Don’t waste another day getting lacklustre results from a recruitment website that you invested in, and for which you had high hopes.

My 100% Money-Back Guarantee:
If you don't get enough value from our Discovery or Recommendation sessions, then I don't deserve your money. This guarantee eliminates all risk on your end, so that we can talk about your business with zero pressure or "sales-y-ness".
I'm not here to sell you on anything. We have problems to solve together, and I measure my success by whether or not you agree that we've solved them.
I only take on 1 or 2 new clients a month, and spend the rest of the time working on my business and building side-projects to keep my skills sharp.
Scheduling is first come, first served. The sooner you apply, the sooner you will have the answers you need to get your recruitment consulting business generating significantly more clients online.
