silverglade Posted January 17, 2012 Share Posted January 17, 2012 Hi , I have a dating site and it is decent, looks nice, basic functionality of your average site. I was going to charge $5 per month for paid memberships that allow you full contact with members to date. the free version only lets you view the members. I read that plentyoffish.com is huge and free depending on advertising money, however places like eharmony and match.com charge a decent amount, too much in my opinion. I have also read that it is best to make your site free to attract visitors, and then start charging a fee. Does that mean you start charging only the NEW customers? and just give away those old accounts? Basically the problem is, I have a dating website, not niched yet if I ever find one, and I have no one there. Absolutely no one. I have another website that gets about 15-20 visits per day and put a link to my dating site on it. Does anyone know how I can get new members? The money problem will solve itself in a way after I get a large user base, because I can severely undercut larger dating sites, since I am a small guy. very small. 1 millionth of match.com income is what I could literally live off of. Please if anyone has ideas on how to get members I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you also, some people post tons of fake users, not sure if I will do that yet. I might have to initially.
