    Default Is there still money in being a dating site affiliate ?

    hi all

    just that really - is there still money in being a dating site affiliate ?

    it's a bit of a loaded question as I have a dating review site that got made in 2009 and I've done nothing with it since, even the affiliate links are out of date I think - very little traffic - some review content and usual 10 articles of how to go dating online etc ... it's not terrible but its not exceptional either

    do I sell it to someone who understands this niche ? or is it worth putting sometime into it myself and giving it a bit of love

    thats a bit of a how long is a piece of string but curious if

    a) there is still good money to be made as dating affiliate (or is it tough to someone with no real experience in the niche)

    b) am I better off just selling the site as a project / fixer upper to someone who does dating ?

    cheers scrawnybob

    I think online dating sites became irrelevant since the inception of casual encounters on craigslist.

    seriously though, i personally would never take a dating review site seriously, not sure what others think on the matter.

    There will always be money made in health, wealth and relationships. Good money. Always. Lead generation for dating sites like Mate1, Pink Wink, True.com, Be2, etc, etc is big. I'm looking in one of my network accounts now and see well over 50 offers (Cpa <$10 usually), possibly over 75 that I can run.

    I think it's a more/less a question of whether you want to work on it or not. It could very well depend on the project (domain/angle), too.

    I own one that makes several hundred $$ per month on avg between affiliate links and a bit of adsense. So the niche is not totally dead.

    The advent of free dating sites like POF and OKCupid have really hurt affiliates that push pay dating sites like match, eharmony, etc.

    Default thanks for feedback

    thanks everyone for such quick feedback

    I think probably my gut feeling that I have too much on already and no real experience or motivation in the niche suggests a trip to the marketplace ... thanks for all the feedback helps confirm my gut feeling

    matt you've probably nailed it - I could get motivated to learn about trading or bingo but not sure dating niche is my thing - which is probably why it sat there

    easy fixer-up project for someone who is into dating I think

    anywhere else worth putting it up other than the marketplace here ? is flippa any good ?

    cheers scrawnybob

    Flippa wants money in advance --> better pick something else if you google it you will find plenty.

    I think dating sites are one of the way to earn easy money on relationship.
