Make money through dating sites

Written by Mike

Topics: Affiliate Marketing

Even though there are some good free dating sites now available, there is still money to be made in dating. I am making over $2000 a year through a partnership I have on my Tokyo website, without spending any time dealing with the site or any money marketing it. My Tokyo site is a travel website, but the audience seems to also like the dating part of the website. It is totally managed by a company I have partnered with and revenue seems to be growing nicely. The partner is World Friends Networks and they are looking to expand their business.

I am offering $100 to anyone who would like to also become a partner with World Friends. I am willing to pay anyone $100 who is accepted into the network. You will need to have an established website with some traffic. WorldFriends sets up a dating site on a subdomain on your site. They try to integrate the design, so it looks like it is running on your own website, so it can also help get return visitors.

They pay quarterly and are prompt with their payments.

Update: I just realized that it now costs $500 to join the program. They have changed the policy since I joined. If you do have the traffic, I do believe it is a good revenue source, but I personally don’t believe in having to pay to join up to a program, even if it does take some time to get set up. I will leave up to people to decide if they want to go through.

    I’ll take a run at adding a dating component to my celebrity site. It gets about 600 visitors a day…is that good enough to get accepted? Email me the particulars for the $100 bonus please.

    Ouch…$500…I might have to look at other dating sources. Thanks for the heads up.

    Sorry about that. Charging money is not a good way to get more affiliates. I really wonder what they are thinking. It is a good program though, if you have the traffic, but I don’t think too many people will want to pay $500.

    I think the fee should be waived if you have a site that they want in their network. ie meet traffic requirements, demographics, etc..

    I can see charging for setup if it was setup more like a service and not an affiliate.

    In the early ninties I had a so called dating directory. It was basically all of adult friend finders affiliate programs. From lesbian dating to gay dating, asian dating to hispanic dating and many others. I have been with adult friend finder for around ten years now and still promote them, only on a smaller scale. An affiliate banner here, an affiliate banner there. It was very lucrative to say the least and I never had a problem getting paid.

    It actually contributed to over 50% of my grandsons future college fund. I was offered an amount I couldnt refuse for the website and domain name and have never really gotten back into the dating game fulltime since I found out I can make just as much marketing art and posters on the internet. Tin, metal and wooden signs also sell very well. For some reason they seem to sell in bundles of 5, 6 or more quite often and usually signs that would fit accordingly in a bar or restaurant. Beer, Humor etc….

    The best part i enjoy about affiliate marketing rather than having your own product is that you dont have to deal with anything except depositing the check. No shipping, No returns, No emails, No hassles.
