Nice post and I'm going to save it as handy reference. Many of our potential clients are hyped on the feature (we use RSS but never did do an active agent), and while we always say it won't help in the real world, they often don't belive us and have to learn the hard way.

Not only don't they help; they likely waste time managing inquiries that are off base, and the associated work/hassle/defocus that arises from stimulating people you really dont want to stimulate !

There are other, better ways to keep in touch with a talent pool.

Thanks for the feedback Martin.

Excellent point about the opportunity cost associated with managing inquiries that are off base due to inaccurate ad targeting.
