August International Focus

We are seeing some fantastic results in South Africa at the moment! Please read on to find out how the network is performing plus news regarding a ‘Free Read’ and our International Partner Of The Month…


South Africa Focus


The SA network continues to soar. Comparing July 2011 with the same period last year, we have witnessed a 30% increase in revenue growth and a 55% rise in new registrations across our South African platform! Have you got a slice of the SA pie? Why not speak to your Partner Manager and discuss the current opportunities of setting up a site on this great network?


SA Internet Growth Continues


– The arrival of fast broadband via undersea fibre-optic cable networks in late 2010 has helped to boost speeds and grow internet penetration and usage in South Africa.

– Increased ISP competition has created more awareness and demand for home internet access at lower prices for residents. In turn, this has increased online usage… which is great news as we have seen more South Africans than ever before joining our online dating sites!

SA Dating Insights

– Whilst 7.3% of all S. Africans live in Cape Town, 16% of all divorcees live there too.

62% of all SA website visitors live in three main cities:

Johannesburg: 28.7%
Cape Town: 19.4%
Pretoria: 14.0%

With our established platform growing quickly in South Africa, now is the time to invest in this great market!


Free Read- Monday 29th August


On Monday 29th August, (which is also a Bank Holiday in the UK), there will be a ‘Free Read’ available to all country networks to encourage basic member engagement and increase network activity.

This will commence 6-8pm in local time zones and the activity will be rounded off with a special upgrade offer on the following day. If you have any queries, do get in touch with the Partner Team who will be happy to help.
