Dating sites - there are thousands of them

Too late to break into the market?

It seems like there are thousands of them. I'm sure some of them make good money but is it too late to get into that market? I once thought about opening a dating site but then thought about all the other ones that are out there and gave up.

Browse through the recent postings in the Adsense Forum, and you'll find a person who makes a lot of money with his dating site. He can tell you more about this topic :-)

I saw the post. But he might be one of those guys that owns one of those big sites. But there are thousands of them now, is it too late to get in that business?

It's never too late to get into any business, but the later that you leave it, the better the Unique Selling Point you will require in order to break into it.

tombola, there do you think StuntasticAudi got the idea? Anyway I think it's a great plan, mostly because it'll keep StuntasticAudi and everyone else looking for a quick score way the heck away from MY target niche.

" It's never too late to get into any business, but the later that you leave it, the better the Unique Selling Point you will require in order to break into it."

So very, very, very, very true.

you are right there are a million of them out there.

There is also a big stigma becoming attached to them as many of them are proving to be bogus, all sorts of scams are being reported lately ranging from the staff posing as interested women to bot sending out messages pretending to be from women. But you have to be a paid member to reply or get contact info and it is all bull.

It is never too late to break into a big market. Just do it right and don't go crazy trying to collect membership fees. You shouldn't have to trick people and if you come up with a great site with new ideas and you are honerable then I say go for it.
