October Top Tips & Partner of the Month…

As with most businesses, competition in the online dating industry has become increasingly competitive; subsequently resulting in costs and CPAs also increasing. Check out Partner Manager Kabeer Ghale’s great ‘top tips’ below on keeping costs low, reducing your CPAs, and aiming to increase sign-ups and conversions, plus our Partner of the Month…


Kabeer’s Top Tips


Campaign Management
With the ever-changing marketplace it is becoming more and more important to tweak your campaigns, making sure that your costs remain as low as possible whilst maintaining a high quality of traffic. Campaigns should really be reviewed as frequently as possible to ensure that you are consistently out-performing. It’s a good idea to tie in analytics, so that you can analyse your spend to assess where you can make changes to further improve the performance. Don’t forget that if your campaigns are performing well in the UK, our South African, Australian, and Irish Networks are growing rapidly and consistently, so why not mirror your sites overseas and launch Internationally too?

Landing Page Optimisation
You may find that one type of landing page works better than another, or that minor adjustments to your landing pages can make a big difference in how well your campaigns convert. There are various factors that can impact decisions for a visitor to sign-up (or not). Essentially the Registration Form is the most important aspect of the page. Making the dating application as accessible as possible for the user by clearly placing your Search Feature and Latest Members is also very important; having all the ‘essentials’ (as I like to call them) above the page fold. Your Partner Manager will be able to provide feedback on any tweaks that you are considering.

Exploring Other Avenues
Where PPC is the preferred method by most, (whether that’s search engines, ad networks, or Facebook for example); there are other avenues that you can go down, some of which are cheaper or even free. Consider social media, blogging (that will also help your SEO rankings), and press releases (online and offline) to name a few. Why not book in a meeting with your Partner Manager to discuss the best ways in which you can optimise your account today?
