The Easy Way To Start An Adult Dating Site

Internet adult dating sites are big business. They continue to make billions, even at a time when everyone is facing cutbacks. The ease with which an internet dating business can be run together with the potential of a huge profit margin, has of course created many competing sites but this has not had a detrimental effect on the income levels of the industry’s leaders. Even today, starting an internet dating site the right way is still a sound business proposal.

At first glance, the setting up an online adult dating business, might appear to be an extremely difficult thing to do. The first requirement is a very robust and sophisticated database in which to keep membership records and carry out the many types of searches and communications that users would expect. To have such a database built for you by a reputable company with the guarantee of continued service and maintenance would require an investment of several thousands of pounds.

Even if you had the knowledge, expertise and time to build and maintain such a database yourself, you would immediately be faced with an even more tricky problem; how to populate it with thousands of active users before your first member signs up!

Then of course you would need a web site capable of promoting the adult dating club and handling the interface with the database and members-only site. Another few thousand pounds worth of investment would be required to ensure that the job of building this was done properly!

The next requirement would be a reliable and secure mechanism for handling online financial transactions. But it is far from easy to find any organisations who will grant credit card merchandising facilities to be used for receiving subscriptions to an online adult dating site. This is even more difficult to obtain when the business is a new one. In fact, the situation has now become so difficult that any new U.K. based business starting an adult dating site would be forced to look overseas for credit card merchandising facilities. If you were lucky enough to find an overseas source, you would have to agree to conditions that included extortionate fees on every transaction and to have bank transfers made several months in arrears with expensive charges for each transfer.

There is however a way to get around every one of the above difficulties. It actually makes the setting up of a new online adult dating business so easy that anyone can do it in a matter of minutes. The secret is to become an affiliate of an existing site that already has the necessary fully populated database, the ability to handle credit card transactions without paying unduly high fees, and a fully integrated web site for your members to log into.

You will of course still to build, or have built for you, a website to promote your business and from which people can log into the membership site. But this is relatively easy and inexpensive to do. You will also have to promote your business and your web site using search engine optimization, link partnerships, blogs, articles and ideally some regular external advertising too. This is the hurdle at which most of your competitors will fall because successful site promotion and business promotion requires patience and sustained effort over a long period of time.

Nevertheless, it is hard to think of any other internet business that is capable of generating such a good income for such a low investment in either money or time. There are many examples of individuals who have started adult dating sites, using this affiliate model who are earning over two thousand pounds every month and there are some who sites earn them much more.

Why Your Graduate Trainee Knows More About Adult Traffic Than Your CEO

It still holds true that a number of Adult Industry luminaries believe you cannot look to pay per click for quality adult traffic. However, this is a prejudice they will hold from their dealings with PPC firms from long ago. These now-defunct PPC suppliers may have dealt these top execs a dud hand when they were junior campaign managers ten years prior. It’s tough to deny that some of these adult pay per click companies failed to provide a reliable service, ripping off their customers with inflated click costs and out-of-control fraud long before the first dot com crash.

Nevertheless, these execs, still smarting from their PPC experience as juniors many moons ago are now at the top of their profession, deciding where to sprinkle the restorative powers of their promotional budgets. Still finding it tough to overcome their perturbing memories they ignore PPC, instead shovelling large chunks of money at their own affiliate programs instead. These huge hulking beasts require significant resources to manage and demand continual revision of tools and rich media applications to continue to fire affiliates imagination.

There is a strong argument however that affiliate programs are beginning to take more in than they give out. Opening the floodgates that protect your video content to torrents of freeloading surfers, courtesy of your affiliates, can consume bandwidth like a hungry plague of locusts. The double-whammy of letting affiliates send whatever traffic they like to sites, with little quality control, means that that even more gigabytes of data is eaten up by duff traffic highly unlikely to convert. The right hook of rich video content through free tours and the upper cut of unregulated traffic flows are combined to deliver the same knockout blow as the adult PPC that these execs shied away from ten years before.

These top bosses have failed to comprehend that pay per click has been kicked into rude health by their cousins outside the adult business. In the first instance, it has ingested and adapted the auction process pioneered by eBay. Rather than demanding a high set charge, advertisers are only asked to stump up fractionally more than their nearer competing bidder. In the second instance, throwing in location and content targeting has made budgets exponentially more efficient as ads reach exactly who they are supposed to, eliminating wastage. In the third instance, by opening the coffers and bringing in top development talent far more effective fraud elimination rules have been developed, combing traffic free of dicey clicks. By only sending real potential customers to your adult website you can achieve much lower acquisition costs. The youth of today have grown up with the lead-generation-on-steroids power of modern PPC, why is why the latest influx of college leavers will correctly choose PPC over the more dated methods championed by your companies management.

These changes are like manna from heaven for the adult marketer, and a small, visionary group of ad networks have grasped hold of these innovations with both hands. Any commercial adult webmaster can now build their internet business and negate the requirement to amass pockets of affiliates with their demands for video tools. If you listen to what the kids are talking about, PPC 2.0, you can begin to harness its awesome power for your adult commercial interests today.
