Dec 24, 2007
With the wide variety of choices available in the market in online dating software segment, it is very hard to choose one for your own online dating site. In the other way, the competition is good as it will bring the best efforts from the developers of the online dating software.

In this article, we will try to discuss the most important points which a prospective business man should keep in mind while choosing right online dating software:

1. What are the most important features for your dating business: Are you looking for a simple off the shelf solution of online dating software which you can integrate in your existing website or are you looking to start a state of art dating business? You should be very sure of this even before you start your online dating business. Let's suppose that you are making a dating site for Christians who live in cities of developed countries then you should have a zip code based search as it will easily facilitate users to search for like minded people in their cities.

2. What is the budget of your dating business: This is the next most important thing as the budget can narrow down your choices of online dating software quite radically. So be sure of the allocated budget. Most of the times your business model and revue model also emerge from this concept itself.

3. Are you looking to compliment your online business with offline events: This is not an option if you are looking at a low cost business model. But, if you are sure of your offline marketing capabilities of your team and if you have strong network in your place then you should look at complementing your online business model with offline events. Then you should look for dating software which can stuff all your offline activities at right places and in the best possible manner. Most of the available dating scripts have powerful content management systems where in you can create custom web pages to host all your offline activities. However, it is important to make sure whether the dating software which you are choosing has this capability or not.

4. Privacy related features: Almost all the online users of the dating sites especially women users keep a close eye on the privacy policy of the dating site before they get registered with the web site. Hence, it is mandatory to check whether the online dating software is capable of providing the web site users with the required confidential features or not. It is always a good idea to list down the entire confidentiality feature which you want to provide to your users and then compare them with the confidentiality features of the dating software. You should also make sure that all these features and all the related clauses are listed down properly and clearly in the privacy policy of the dating web site.

5. Regular up gradation: Because of the rapid changes in the technology, you should be able to add all the new features to your online dating site as the time passes by. If you don't provide those new features and value added services, your competitor will certainly provide them and take away your users from your web site. In this market the loyalty of users is quite low. However, if the dating software vendor is not providing you with the free upgrades you will end up paying more than what you paid for the original online dating software. Hence you should always go ahead and choose an dating software vendor who can provide you with the free life time upgrades.

If you can keep all these points in mind while choosing online dating software, you will definitely end you purchasing the best and you will start your dating business on a right note. Starting any business on the right note will always increase the chances of winning in the game of business. However, these points will not guarantee success in the game of online dating business.

You should be able to update your dating software with all the changing trends in technology and with all the advanced features that your visitors may demand with the changing times. If you can meet the expectations of the visitors they become loyal customers to your online dating business. But, if you can exceed their expectations they will not only become loyal customers to your business but also will become brand ambassadors to your dating site. Hence keep your focus on exceeding their expectations.
