What is Archively ?

Archively is a beautifully designed bookmarklet that allows you to track, grab, and build information profiles on leads that you are sourcing. It’s built for recruiters but can be used by any lead tracking nympho online. This covers sales people, marketing professionals, recruiters, sourcers, even PI’s.

Built for sourcers and recruiters, Archively captures the workflow and best practices of discovering people in a web based world.

Note: Archively offers 2 versions at this time. The Free forever version and of course they offer paid subscription models.

How Archively Works

Archively  is a bookmarklet that sits on your browser allowing you to grab the profile information from any page, within any site anywhere online.  I love this tool because it’s fast and easy to create a file on someone you see from any site your are browsing.

What makes this bookmarklet so intriguing is that you can grab this information from any site, and not just social networks. For example you can aggregate information from sources like LinkedIn, Github, Corporate sites, Videos, News articles, White papers the person has written as well as anywhere else you can think of with a URL.

The details in 3 easy to understand steps:

  1. Archively  has the ability to recognize people and the context by which the content is related to the person on the page you are archiving.
  2. Archively grabs the persons information that is available creating a CRM style record linked (archived) to the the source of information where the lead was first identified. This information is easily edited in your notes section for additional tracking.
  3. If available, Archively  will append the records data with social profile information such as the persons LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter profiles.

Archively has an organization system called Collections which can be completely customized.  This is ideal for recruiters who like to group people into multiple categories like skills, education, location, project etc, which are view-able in an editable spreadsheet view.

Why Use Archively?

On boarding takes less than 5 minutes.  Really, it is that simple.

This is a tool that you can use on the fly while sourcing on the internet. No more copying hyperlink and then cutting and pasting to a spread sheet for later use. All you do is click and boom it is loaded to the profile. All the information about that person right at your finger tips, resume, profiles etc. All of your data is exportable in a format that can be uploaded to an ATS if necessary.

The more research you do, the higher quality engagement you are more likely to have, which translates into more hires.

Search firms have been saving their data and tracking people for decades.  The future of people data is online and Archively let’s you start building a lasting database for yourself and your organization with that in mind.
