We need some help from folks who know how to market in the online dating niche. We have a LGBTQ dating site, specifically aimed at women seeking women personals and Lesbian romantic liaisons, that is having difficulty getting off the ground.
Having made the mistake of not realizing Facebook does NOT accept any new dating clients (basically FB ads was our original marketing plan... apparently they stopped taking small dating websites some time last year) we've turned to smaller niche sites with mixed results.
POF.com does not take any new clients, and for some reason our Adwords account can't target POF ad space...
One that was promising was ToddandClare.com, since it's basically an invite-only women's network (I have a friend at Vistage who was a peer advisory networker on Todd and Clare last year before they joined the UN) but 2 days ago got a form email from their "Risk team" saying that they're no longer allowing our ads.
BTW, Our ads are tasteful and Todd and Clare have failed to respond so far to why we got blocked, which is frustrating to put it mildly. I don't know where else to turn, it's frustrating because I think the t&c ads were paying off, with several subscriptions from NYC women very quickly.
So, how do I market a women/women dating site.
