Investing in Your Trading Partners = More Money!

Top Echelon Network is not a magic money-making machine. (Sorry if that came as a surprise to you.) No, split fee recruiting success requires investing a certain amount of time, energy, and effort.

Here’s the good news: there can be a return on that investment. AND that return can be quite hefty.

Investing with a purpose

Take the split placements highlighted below. Six recruiters were involved in those splits, and all six made an investment. They were investing in their split network trading partners. Here are just some of the good things that happened as a result of those investments:

  • Three placements, obviously
  • A saved placement after it appeared to be falling off
  • A new trading partner relationship
  • The first split placement between two recruiters

Are you going to work with every member of Top Echelon’s recruiting network? No. Are you going to work with every recruiter operating within your industry and/or niche? Probably not. But you can build trading partner relationships with between three and five other members and work with them consistently.

Investing in your Network membership in that fashion can pay off. It can pay off in more placements and more revenue for your agency. The key is to be proactive. Identify other members in your chosen niche. Reach out and contact them. Share hot job orders and candidates.

And if you want help, our Director of Network Operations can help. His name is Drea Codispoti, and you can reach him by calling 330.455.1433, x156 or by sending an email to

No, Top Echelon Network is not a magic money-making machine. But you can make more money by using it. Pardon me. I mean investing in it.
