Over the last few years we have had the please to help build many interesting online communities built around the concept of a social network.
Today I was reviewing our dating portfolio and asked myself, “Is Starting an Online Dating Website Still Profitable?
To turn out online dating from enjoyable pastime into a profitable business first of all you need to have professional dating service website.
” Brian Peters, an internet consultant/project manager who worked for Web Biz Ideas at the time, asked him self the same question.That question lead to Web Biz heavily investing in Social Network Website Design. Around this time was getting national media attention and Dr.Warren’s e Harmony was starting to become a large player in the industry.I've started and built about 12 online dating sites and were able to sell 3 of them for 5 figures years ago.
I have a blog and an ebook about the online dating business (see my profile).Building your own online dating website is a great way to earn an extra income online.You may want to ask yourself if you are just looking for a project to work on part-time or if you are really interested in getting into the online dating business.Dating websites are a pretty specific sub-group in the social networking world, and they offer a potentially lucrative business opportunity to web-savvy entrepreneurs.Keeping the site free, rather than subscription-based, can help grow your user base but it means you'll have to design your service around generating revenue from other sources.If you follow these steps you will be ahead of lots of folks that just jump right in. My goal is to outline as much as I can here to give you the right tools and resources to get your dating website up and running; and give you a few things to consider in terms of establishing a brand for your business.
