    I guess the first step would be to find affiliate networks with dating offers

    Then I would start to put some content together to populate my new site. I would hope that at this point you have already picked a name and purchased your domain name.

    It would also be good to get hosting now so when sending and receiving email correspondence it can be yourname@yourdomain.com instead of a gmail or other fee email service.

    Learn basic SEO. Learn about paid ads and networks, the list goes on.

    Don't overwhelm yourself. Just start and come back here with some more specific questions. For now just at least start researching

    One of the fastest ways to get setup is to start promoting dating products from the Clickbank marketplace. Clickbank is a cliche' here but it's for a good reason, it works.

    It's a good idea to have your own website, email autoresponder, and a proven product to sell. You can get domain and web hosting from many web hosting companies online. If you're familar with Wordpress, you can get a ".com" domain name for $1 for the first year, and a web hosting with Wordpress for $0.50/month (if you get the annual plan - $6).

    My basic strategy is to drive traffic to my website, offer them a freebie, followup via email, and drive them to my offer. There are tons of ways to get traffic (such as paid advertising), but this is just a general outline of what works today.

      What he describes here are possibilities from which you can choose but please don't make the mistake and use all of them at the beginning because this is the best and safest way to failure..

      As a newbie you will get lost, overwhelmed and most likely demotivated when trying them all at once.

      The alternative would be to choose one traffic strategy instead and master it until success.

      Good Luck

    See this summary I wrote.

    Who's your target market? People who want to get back with their exes? Guys under 30 wanting to date and learn pickup? Women over 40 who want to get back into the dating game after kids and divorce? You need to get specific.

    THEN you can figure out offer, traffic etc.

      • You should try them all, because you never know what will be suitable for your site, for your niche and for your customers.

    Well, if you want to go into the dating industry then you should not be worrying about traffic at least because there are already millions of people on the internet looking for dating websites. However, you should take into consideration the commission that you can get by promoting a dating website because unlike digital marketing niche where the profit margins are high, in dating the profit margins are not as high as they are let say in a niche like an Email marketing even though, choosing a niche depends on a person and not on the profit but it is still a factor to consider while making a decision.

    Also you should absolutely pay attention about the content of your landing page
    If you intended to use google or facebook to drive paid traffic

    Once you got suspended the account, it's very difficult to get it back
    I had to learned this the HARD way

    So, make sure that your landing page will has the content that is comply with their rules

  • The dating niche is very broad, so you'll want to narrow down into the dating niche and pick a sub niche in the dating niche and become a mini celebrity in that particular niche. An example will be dating college girls.

    Do your research on that niche. Read about three to five books on how to date college girls, so you can become an expert on the topic of dating college girls. You then use the best information you've researched in the four books you've studied on the topic and write your own book on how to date college girls.

    You give away the first chapter for free as a lead magnet in exchange for your prospects email address. You offer the rest of your book as a bonus product when your list buys the affiliate program that you are marketing. You can create more bonuses to encourage buying the affiliate program directly from your affiliate links.

    That's just abit of what to do to get started. You'll obviously need a website, autoresponder service, paid & free traffic sources to generate traffic to send to your lead magnets.

    The best way would be to share content optimised for SEO on whatever platform you choose.

    You don't necessarily have to do paid traffic.

    The most important thing is to learn from people who have already achieved the results you want.

    Just pick an offer, set up a landing page and drive paid ads to the preview landing page. Try some of the cheapest advertising networks like PPV, email ads and even bing ads.

    I am not in the dating space. But.

    Surf all your favorite porn sites. View the page source or right click the ads, figure out who sells the impressions for that ad unit. Go to that ad inventory providers, signup. Go to monsterads.com or a similar site, signup to get dating and adult offers.

    See what sites do well through those ad channels and try to find who has the offer. Replicate it.

    SEO is the primary factor when it comes to driving organic traffic to your website. Learn the basics of SEO. Do keyword research or engage an expert to do it for your website. Also invite guests to post on your website.

    The industry doesn't matter as much, Chris, as the techniques used to market your product/service.

    Do you have any experience in affiliate marketing/online marketing?

    Check RSD (brand), their programs used to have affiliate programs and they were really good. I can't tell you right now, I'm in a totally different industry, but they were top, at least marketing wise. Hope it helps!

    My suggestion is that. First of all select a niche related Domain. Atach it with hosting. After that produce quality content on your website ., after some times and article you should start off page seo to your website so website traffic increase by this and will be in ranking,Google approved you're website☺️

      Wouldn't they be better off by figuring out what skills and interests they currently have and see if any of them apply to marketing online first?


      Why do you need Google to approve your site? If it indexes it, you're good to go.


      Why start SEO "after some times?" It's a lousy idea. Start figuring out your SEO strategy and tactics before you do anything that even resembles content creation.

    My #1 piece of advice is to consider how you will get traffic above everything else.

    Search engine traffic is possible, but it can take time to achieve results. Early results are best achieved by targeting very low competition keywords.

    Also consider what you will offer your website visitors that is of value? Why would someone want to visit your site first instead of going directly to a dating site? If you can figure out good answers to those questions and give something unique to your readers, you'll reach your goals much faster.

    With almost any online business, patience is also key. You're not likely to find a lot of success in your first few months. It could take a year or even a couple of years. If you can have those realistic expectations when you first get started, it's easier to keep working hard and avoid getting discouraged from a lack of results at first.
