What are Pass-Along Materials (PAMs)?
Pass-Along Materials (PAMs) are brandable content you can use with your resume writing clients. They are articles, short reports, checklists, and done-for-you workshops provided in Microsoft Word format that you can simply stick your name on and use “as is,” or edit and/or rewrite into new content. Learn more here.
How do I get access to Pass-Along Materials?
When you sign up for a paid membership, you will have access to the current month’s PAM content pack. A new pack is released each month as a benefit of membership. Each month, you will have access to a new package. (Previous packages are removed from the membership section and are sold separately in the store.)
What kinds of topics are offered as PAMs?
The first Pass-Along Materials pack was a 7-page guide, "Do You Have Any Questions For Me? The Question Every Candidate Should Be Prepared to Answer In An Interview." It contains more than 80 questions that a well-informed job seeker can ask a prospective employer in an interview. (How many of us have had clients ask us, “What do I say if they ask if I have any questions for them?” This guide answers that question. Thoroughly.)
Since 2011, Pass-Along Materials content topics have included online reputation management, salary negotiation, what to do next with your resume, etc. You can learn more here.
What Can I Do With Pass-Along Materials?
You can put your name and contact information on it (as if you wrote it), give it away, sell it, excerpt it as blog posts or articles, and/or use it as a script for a webinar or in-person training. Basically, the only restriction is that you can't give them to another resume writer or career coach for *their* use. (They need to buy their own personal license!)
Here's what one resume writer said about Pass-Along Materials:
“Bridget, oh my you’ve made my life so much easier. I am doing a bit of catch-up work this afternoon and finally opened your email and took a look at the PAM materials!! I am flabbergasted by what you are offering. It takes me a good couple of weeks of writing to fine tune one of these kinds of handouts (I have an interview e-book and 20 best cover letters e-book as well as a few free resources). As a writer I will undoubtedly add my own personality, but as I read through one document, I saw that I’d keep most of the writing as is. Kudos to you for this idea, for this help to struggling self-employed resume writers!”
