Recently, 2 conferences were held for the Online Dating Industry.
iDate2013 Las Vegas and OnlineDatingSummit Miami, USA, nearly at the same time.
Both conferences were fruitless for end users, for daters.
NO INNOVATIONS SINCE YEARS IN THE ONLINE DATING INDUSTRY.
C level executives do not pay attention to latest research from Academics which could be beneficial for the Online Dating Industry.
Paid online dating sites have high acquisition costs,
they can not abandon the attracting, converting and retaining marketing
stages; the automatic renewal of their members's subscriptions with
dirty credit-card billing trickery.
They can not innovate any more and waste precious time with Matchmakers which are obsolete, like typewriters. The masterminds behind IAC personals (Match, Chemistry, OKCupid, SinglesNet, Meetic, MeeticAffinity, ParPerfeito, People's Media Communities and others) can not innovate any more and plan to acquire 2 companies soon ???
Moreover they did not pay the attention the Latin American Market deserves.
The Simpsons, Apple, Facebook, LinkedIn, WordPress, Google, Hotmail,
Yahoo, YouTube, Blogger, Wikipedia, Bing, Twitter, Skype are BIG successes in
I have the theory that if something is successful in Argentina, it could be a success in the World.
If it can NOT be a success here in Argentina, it will definitely NOT be a success in the World.
online dating company (for serious daters) has success here in Argentina nor Brazil or other Latin American country.
