Stockholm, Sweden (PRWEB) December 19, 2013
FirstDate, the leading online dating site in Scandinavia, has announced that they are now offering an in-house dating service to readers of Sweden's Expressen and Denmark's Berlingske Tidene newspapers.
Expressen is Sweden's leading newspaper with a loyal following to both their print and digital news publications. Attracting 3 million unique visitors per week to their online platform, Expressen.se is now the 3rd most visited Swedish website. With such a large following, the media company has decided they can further assist their readers by entering into a strategic partnership with Firstdate to bring online dating directly to the Expressen.se website.
Earlier this month, FirstDate became the in-house brand for Denmark's foremost news publication and the world's oldest newspaper, Berlingske Tidene. With 1.5 million unique visitors weekly to their online services at bt.dk, their partnership with FirstDate has opened the door for singles in Denmark to easily connect with others in their area who share their interests.
"We are honored to be given the opportunity to deliver online dating to the two largest media companies in Scandinavia," said Chris Engleus, CEO of FirstDate. "These partnerships will not only help to increase traffic to our site, giving our members a much larger pool to choose from, but also puts Firstdate in an excellent position to best serve the Scandinavian market."
Firstdate also plans to open equivalent services in co-operation with Norway's leading online news services by the end of the year.
FirstDate.com is the leading Pan-Scandinavian dating site. With almost 1,5 million members and more than 100,000 visitors a day, FirstDate is by far the most visited dating site in Scandinavia (Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland). FirstDate was launched on December 1, 2008 and has quickly become the number one choice for the Scandinavian people.
