Affiliate Dating sites know that finding someone to love is one of the most important goals in a person’s life, and most of them are pros at matching people up.
But a recent post by Internet affiliate marketing blog Finch Sells about an upcoming online dating summit in Barcelona suggests much more to the concept of online dating. Adding a dating section to your site can lead to affiliate traffic. The more traffic you lead, the more you earn.
And just as online dating sites are geared toward people seeking relationships; your affiliate program should aim to pair you up with added expertise.
“Unlike a lot of so-called ‘opportunities’ for making money on the web, associate marketing is no flash in the pan’” according to affiliate marketing partner My Place For Hosting. Success in any affiliate venture is dependent on having the best technology and access to the best networks—both of which can come from the technology provided by a site like My Place For Hosting.
The popularity of dating affiliate marketing and dating sites makes for some motivated partners seeking affiliates. Business models and payment methods can be standardized, and the companies involved can be advanced marketers.
Traffic generated can occupy a niche – men, women, straight, gay, etc., and be highly customized to your geographic region or it can be international and multi-lingual.
Some companies will provide you with a site; others will provide you with banners and ads for your own site.
But read the fine print before you partner with an affiliate dating site. Many dating sites pay per lead, but some sites require at least a two percent conversion rate before they pay out. Some sites pay per click, but require a minimum of 100 clicks before you will see a check coming your way.
Many pay only if people actually sign up and become members. Most pay more for women who sign up than for men who do so. Some may also require that the people signing up be unique- not previous visitors to the site.
Good partners complement each other. What you lack in expertise, your partner makes up for in experience. What he lacks in finesse, you gracefully provide.
