Observers of the Christian dating scene are quietly enjoying the scramble by major dating platforms to stop the potential membership losses to the brand new (less than three months old) God’s Date Match (http://www.godsdatematch.com).
Up to now, the big guys in the business, Christian Mingle, and such, have been raking in money like a snow plow after a major blizzard. The last thing they needed is an upstart of a Christian Dating site coming along and offering (what is their most lucrative source of income), connection fees, for free.
Everyone in the dating business knows, this is a constantly yielding source of big profits. While incoming members are attracted to their sites by TV ads offering free membership, these new enrollees are virtually “slammed” by connection fees once they come on board.
Meanwhile, reports continue that the enrollment in God’s Date Match is such that their technology is being challenged to keep up with the daily enrollments. And what might those numbers be like?
Insiders’ report anywhere from 150, 000 all the way up to 200,000 members. While this may appear insignificant when compared to Christian Mingle’s 7 million plus, the big players in this business are worried because these enrollments happened in only 12 weeks.
Possibly, their additional concern over God’s Date Match is that it is a spin-off of God’s Faithbook (which right now is considered the number one NON-DATING Christian social network in the world.) They remember only too well, they started with ZERO members, no money and a dream.
Two years later, with the help of a very shrewd marketing team, they grew to thousands of serious Christians who found them to be the real answer as to what they expected from a religious social platform. Furthermore, their huge base is now seen as a bridge from God’s Faithbook (http://www.godsfaithbook.com ) to the new God’s Date Match (http://www.godsdatematch.com).
Stay tuned. This looks like a David vs Goliath battle worth watching.
