In less than six months I have joined at least a dozen adult online dating services as an unpaid member. So how is my love life? No change. I had one Epal to show for all my time and effort. She lived a hundred miles from me, got busy with other things and said good bye.
I write good profiles which improve as I gain experience. Those profiles pull instant responses. I get messages in my on site Email but I can’t respond beyond a simple acknowledgement, unless I upgrade now, upgrade now, upgrade now, to paid membership at $25 to $40 per month. For the same reason I quit watching television – because I hate this incessant and blatant advertising, I don’t spend much more time on these sites than it takes to read my mail. I think about the kind of service I would really enjoy and appreciate.
If I just wanted to look at pictures I found one good free content porno site that was a credit to its kind. But dating sites have yet to arrive at this model. Therein lays a huge business opportunity. All these dating sites are member financed. If you don’t pay, you can’t play. People like me leave in utter disgust, because I can’t afford the freight, I don’t like the model, and I wouldn’t pay if I could afford it.
So let’s take a look at how the world’s best adult dating site will operate: Free lifetime memberships with no paid upgrades ever. Member can: 1.) Have unlimited contact with all other members who have blocking options for on-site Email. 2.) Free access to all member profiles. 3.) Free access to all match and search features. 4.) Free access to forums, blogs, advice columns, chat rooms – text, audio, and video. 5.) Options to edit, hide or completely remove profile. 6.) Full options for notification at personal off site Email, for all on site activities. 7.) Option to cancel membership any time.
The mission of the service is to connect people. On site interactivity is heavily promoted so there is no competing site where members would rather be. Members will all be made to feel they are part of a unique and caring community.
If they so choose, they can pay to get prominent profile positioning; say, 1st, 2nd and 3rd pages of any search in which their profile would appear. Pay to post a photo album of up to 20 photos. All members can open accounts for the on site adult products store. High end advertisers are invited on pay per click and commission basis. Pay for full page, high resolution photos.
My point is that the mission makes no money and provides a free and very valuable service. Members are free to pay for better results on a monthly, quarterly and annual basis. Advertising and product sales pay all expenses and return the profits. Such a business could be the top model in two years or less, earning seven figures.
If you have thoughts on this plan, to improve it, get it rolling, work out details, I’d love you to leave a comment or go to my website and send me an Email. If you want to run with it yourself, let me know when it’s up and I’ll be an early member and write an article singing your praises as a marketing visionary.
