Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Sales Gravy is not just a job board; it’s a website specialised in sales techniques and sales news. It also offers various courses and has a built-in job board for those looking to recruit in the sales industry. The site was founded by Jeb Blount in 2007, who also has his own website under his name. In fact, all the social media leads back to his personal pages: 5 275 followers on Youtube, 121 000 on Twitter, 6 986 on Facebook and 9 133 on the Sales Gravy Linkedin page. The numbers are promising, but the visibility is unknown for SimilarWeb. Jeb Blount is a recognised sales leader, which is why he has sold a number of books and has so many followers for his podcasts. Some of their clients also use the courses, rather than the job board space.
Design: The orange logo is of a dollar symbol and a large G, but it used to include a dog mascot next to the name. To access the job board, you need to click on “sales jobs” at the top of the page. The homepage offers useful information about the company and contacting the team, with a search engine (location and keywords) over a backdrop image of a girl on the phone in front of a computer at the top of the page. You can also click on a tab to post an advert, a CV or download the app, making the webpage particularly clear. The homepage is quite attractive (even if the empty “featured employers” section is always a bad sign) but it’s a whole other story when you actually see the job listing. There are no images, and the layout is surprisingly unattractive and old-fashioned. The featured jobs do not include the posting date and the sponsored ones are at the bottom of the page. Most of the job offers lead to another page (usually HeiHotels) and even ones posted “yesterday” are no longer available. Furthermore, you can only filter by industry but, in the advanced search, you can include a postal code, a salary range, a job title and a basic job description.
The job board objective: Sales Gravy aims to help sales professionals improve their techniques and find relevant job opportunities.
Recruiter observations: To create an account, you need to choose your country (the Netherlands, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Mexico, India, Germany, New Zealand, the UK or the US). Once you are logged in, you can see your dashboard, made up of two graphs (for live posts and applicants) and easy-to-follow instructions to create adverts. You can choose from a number of plans (or one single job posting). All the costs are on the website. Before you can create an advert, you have to pay.
Jobseeker observations: If you apply to a job offer through the site without an account, it will automatically create one for you. The CV and the resume are both optional.
The job offers: All of the jobs advertised on Sales Gravy are in sales.
Reactivity: There is no e-mail address, but you can contact the team in writing though the customer service form or in the “About” section.
Special features: The advertising and media kit; Jeb Blount podcasts; women in sales (no new articles since 2016); the articles (no dates, all focused on sales in some way); the views per article; the Sales Gravy university (all the courses relating to sales); the clients using the Sales Gravy university; the sales books and ebooks.
Verdict: Some links don’t work (sometimes job offers, and the ‘all access pass’) and the job board features are particularly poor (even the payment design is off-putting). If you want advice, courses or other sales related info, it’s worth checking out. For job offers and job posting though, we would recommend looking elsewhere.
