About the Company
This is an opportunity to be part of a £165 million booming industry in the UK, with the added prospect of going global. Online dating is the 2nd most common way of starting a relationship and by 2031, 1 in 2 relationships will start online. You could have a part of this lucrative market with my website. In such a competitive industry carving out a niche takes time, money and a very unique idea.
My online matchmaking website has proven to be unique enough to stand out against the mainstream and other niche dating websites. Datemy.co.uk is no ordinary website, unlike most dating websites designed for single people, this one is designed for Matchmakers.
Date My encourages singles’ nearest and dearest to help them find love. The website is a start up which unfortunately couldn t get the funding to launch properly and grow within the UK. Despite this, it has achieved many successes with press features in the Evening Standard, Financial Times, as well as being featured on an ITV show, which is currently being re-commissioned.
The concept is therefore proven in the marketplace, and is currently growing organically with zero marketing in place, due to lack of funds. Despite this, Date My still receives sign ups on a weekly basis.
The website is fully complete, mobile optimised, (it took over a year and a half to develop from branding to website and testing) and developed with a bespoke matchmaking system in place as well as a payment system powered by PayPal.
The bespoke matchmaking platform separates it from its competition and a considerable amount was spent on SEO improvements to make sure Date My is listed for niche searches. This expenditure was worth it around the time of the Date My Mum Channel 4 show where we received 54 sign ups within an hour, during the program. The concept is therefore proven to be successful in the marketplace; it just needs a buyer that has the resources to put some funding behind it to create a solid marketing campaign that will boost sign ups and brand exposure.
I have figures that show the dramatic increase in sign ups when marketing is in place. The revenue model and economics can be sent so that you can see the kinds of figures you’re looking at once members are charged for a subscription.
The site is currently free to join, and is still live. This business can be run from home or in an office by a team of people (small or large team) who do not want the risk of starting their own start up, but instead would like a head start to own and drive a start up that is already proven within the marketplace.
It has huge potential to grow even larger, especially on a global level. There is a growing social following for Date My across Twitter and Instagram so this can also be picked up and not started from scratch which is always hard to do. If you want to be a part of this exciting industry, this is a chance to get ahead with a website that’s already proven to work within the market.
