Referring Teachers to Maximize Your Earning Potential
Recently many teachers have found that Facebook is blocking them from leaving their referral link in messages and posts. This seems to be a shift towards stricter enforcement of an existing rule. We know it has probably thrown a few of you so we asked one of our top referring teachers, Adalee, to give you some tips on how she gets around the policy and guides her candidates through the hiring process.
- Share funny moments from your classes and how much you love your job. Tell your child`s teachers, your church congregation, fellow soccer moms, co-workers, your bank teller, your waitress, and your mailman. :=)
- Ask if you can post a flyer in local businesses, libraries, gyms, and schools. You never know who could be looking for an amazing opportunity to work from home and would love to have an opportunity to teach.
- Join local Facebook groups in your area to find potential applicants - perhaps a meetup group for mothers or a group for local runners. (Hint: Type in your city’s name in the search bar and see what shows up under groups) Be sure to check the group rules on posting. Some have specific guidelines on when advertisements for jobs, etc., can be posted and some do not allow it at all.
- Avoid leaving your referral link in posts and comments as Facebook has recently taken a must sterner view of this. Instead, connect and share your referral code in private messages.
Tips on Recruitment
- Create and post high-quality content when posting in Facebook groups. Be sure to give accurate information and ensure that your post is grammatically correct and provides adequate details about the job.
- Avoid making Qkids seem as though it is a scam by spamming groups or posts.
- If you see a teacher has already commented with a referral link for Qkids or discussed them already in the comments, I suggest that you do not post your own link as well. This can make Qkids seem like an MLM company and not a legitimate job.
- As Facebook is enacting strict rules against posting referral links, carefully monitor these groups for posts where you can comment and share about Qkids without breaking group rules and getting flagged by Facebook police. (e.g. a local mom posts and asks if anyone knows of someone hiring)
