About Us

We’re all about the locals. 

Locally-owned and officially launched on August 1, 2010, HireMeAspen.com is an online service directory that connects hirers with local workers, independent contractors and businesses in the Roaring Fork Valley.  With over 200 specific jobs to choose from, local workers can post a profile that matches their specific skill set while local hirers can find the right worker for the job.  Additionally, local businesses can promote their services on the website via our Partner Program, business profiles and/or targeted display advertising.

Hirers can peruse hundreds of local worker profiles which appear in nine main job categories, and hiring a worker is free.  Workers can post their profile in up to 15 different job categories (since everyone has more than one skill to promote), and posting one’s profile only costs $5 per month.  Businesses can support our hard working locals while advertising their services via our Partner Program; the silver partner level is free. 

We understand the issues hard-working locals face when trying to live and work in this beautiful valley.  That’s why we created this easy to use and practical website as a means to help those workers, independent contractors and small businesses promote their services throughout the Roaring Fork Valley. 

We help them find work so they no longer have to “just get by,” but instead, thrive!

We empower our website visitors by delivering fresh, quality content that includes, but is not limited to, our exclusive database of profiled workers. We encourage repeat visits via our user-friendly design, state-of-the-art technology, and ever-evolving and expanding content such as new subscribers, revolving profile and partner spotlights, and current job postings.  We promote the website throughout the valley in a multitude of ways: local print, radio and TV advertising; email marketing; social media exposure; sweepstakes and contests; flyers and banners; sponsorships and underwriting opportunities; and lots of grassroots, gorilla marketing efforts. 

Everywhere we go, we talk it up!

Our highly interactive and easy to use website attracts a wide audience both near and far.  We incorporate the latest tools and functionality to ensure that connections are made, workers are hired, needs are met and advertisers are satisfied.  Our audience continues to expand by leaps and bounds as word of the website spreads and the HireMeAspen community grows.

In the short time since our launch, we have been growing at a rapid pace…and we have the locals to thank for that! 

 

Demographics 

HireMeAspen.com enjoys hosting one of the most diverse communities of local workers in the area: workers ranging from Home Repair and Entertainment to Professional Services and Instructors. As a result, subscribers of HireMeAspen are some of the hardest-working and passionate people in the valley.  We cater to a wide-range of hirers, both inside and outside the valley. They include HR departments in large corporations, small business owners, hotel/hospitality employers, property managers, event planners/local events, first or second homeowners, and any local or visitor who needs a service fulfilled.

Our site attracts a wide demographic: man/woman, young/old, rich/poor, hard-working laborers/laid-back creative types, PhDs/trade school, individual/team-player, corporate business executives/sole practitioners.  Whatever their niche, users fit in and get their needs met.  No matter whom you wish to target, HireMeAspen helps you get exposed to the right audience.

Without a doubt, the one unifying characteristic which users and visitors alike possess is their undying passion and love for the Roaring Fork Valley and their unwavering desire to live here.

Special Mentions

Participate in our “special mentions” program to generate additional exposure.  Do you need to target hirers, workers and local businesses in the valley?  Or, are you only interested in reaching our database of workers (i.e. targeting a specific subgroup)?  We offer a customized marketing solution comprised of special mentions in targeted emails and blog posts as well as social media exposure that will get you noticed.

Pricing for special mentions is customized for each advertiser, and it is based on the total number of mentions requested (limited opportunities), various placement options, desired timing, and overall “special mention” campaign objectives.  Please contact us for more details.

There are many other benefits for gold partners in addition to the exposure received via a Business Profile; one additional benefit worth noting is the ability for your business to be profiled on Aspen.com, exposing your company to a much wider audience.   Please visit our Partner Program for more information.
