I have over 15 years of experience running online dating sites. This course is a distillation of what I’ve learned. Enroll on this course and I’ll explain how to begin, how to save time and money, and how to equip yourself with the right tools and tricks to maximize your chances of success while minimizing the risks associated with starting an online business.
I started my first online dating site in 2004/2005 and quickly launched others. In those years it was a lot easier to rank sites in Google so my sites quickly became known. Some of them turned out to be very profitable while others were the wrong choice of niche. Choosing the right niche is crucial and I cover that in the course.
As time went on the bigger companies realised the potential of online dating and more companies joined the industry, so things became harder. My course reaches you how to get started in this competitive industry and shows you how it is still possible to make money with the right effort applied in the right places. Most importantly, it teaches you how to avoid the pitfalls that cause people to give up before they’re found any success.
Niche Dating Sites
The first thing you have to do is decide on a niche. A niche is simply a subset of people who share common characteristics or interests.
If you can think of single people who share a common interest and if there are not many dating sites successfully exploiting that niche then you could be on to a winner.
Dating Site Platforms
Next, you need to decide on a dating site platform. Broadly speaking there are three main types of dating site; self-hosted, white label, and affiliate site.
I go into the details about each of these platforms in my course. There are pros and cons with each and they each require different levels of commitment and effort.
You will also need to create a business plan that includes cash flow forecasts. You can’t measure how well you’re doing until you know what you’re spending. Again, these are covered in much more detail in the course.
So let’s say you’ve chosen your niche and you’ve built a site in partnership with a white label dating company. Like any other freshly launched website that relies on traffic that it can convert into customers you’ll now need to optimise it for search terms and get it ready for marketing. The search terms will have been chosen during the market research phase of your business plan.
You will also need to ensure that the site’s on-page SEO and off-page SEO is the best you can make it, without becoming too bogged down in this area. SEO is a vast subject that’s constantly evolving but you’ll only need to know the basics.
When you’re ready to enter into the promotion and marketing phase there are several options open to you, free and paid.
Free forms of marketing might include Facebook and LinkedIn pages & posts, Twitter and Instagram posts and stories, a YouTube channel, and blogging. Paid forms of marketing include Google AdWords, Facebook Ads, and conventional ad placement both online and in print.
Assuming your methods work you should start to generate traffic that converts into new registrations, and soon after your first subscribers. At last, all your hard work is beginning to pay off!
You press on and the site continues to grow. Perhaps in time it will grow enough to justify a re-negotiation of the revenue split. Eventually you may be able reduce the tasks you need to perform each day by outsourcing them to contractors. If one site is all you wanted then you can take your foot off the gas a little but you may want to expand into a portfolio of sites.
This is just a taster for over 20 lessons on the topics you need to know about in order to become a successful online dating website owner.
The Online Dating Industry Today
The online dating industry has come a long way since the early days of the internet. When online dating first became popular, there were a lot of negative stereotypes associated with it.

However, the industry has grown a lot since then, and it is now a mainstream way to meet potential partners. In fact, according to a recent study, one in five relationships now starts online.
The industry has also become much more sophisticated, with the development of targeted websites and apps for specific audiences. For example, there are now dating websites and apps for people of all ages, religions, and sexual orientations. This growth and sophistication has led to a more positive perception of online dating, and it is now seen as a safe and effective way to meet new people.
