Tips for Getting Started on!


Do you have a site sitting in development and you are not sure how to get it up and running? Do you have a brilliant idea for a dating site but have had your site rejected and are not sure what to do next?

Never fear, can help you do this! Our Partner Portal takes you through the steps, but just in case you need that extra bit of guidance take a read through the points below and you could have your site up and running sooner than you thought.

Decide On Your Target Audience
Whether you want to aim your site at a variety of people or a small niche, this will affect the design of your site. We have a few different networks available; General (relationships), Adult (no strings), Mature (over 50’s), Casual (flirty) and Alternative (alternative lifestyle). You can then niche within these networks to the interests and characteristics members fill in on their profiles.

Purchase A Domain Name
Once you have decided on your target audience for your site you will need to purchase a domain name that fits this niche and one that is memorable. Maybe you are looking to branch your site out internationally at a later stage if so then choosing a domain name ending ‘.com’ should be your first choice. If this isn’t available (as it can be fairly popular), country-specific domains are also a good choice; for example ‘’ for Australian sites. There are a number of domain registration companies available online.

Designing A Landing Page
You will need to design a landing page, hosted at your chosen domain, to sit over our application. The hosting for this will need to be purchased by you. Make sure you choose a reputable company – read some few reviews. When designing your landing page you have creative control over the look and feel of it, so you will need to think about what will appeal to your target audience to increase the chances of them joining when they initially visit your site. Don’t worry if you are unsure how to design the page yourself, you can outsource the work to a web designer / developer to create your landing page.

Link The Landing Page To Our Application
In order for your landing page to link through to our application, you will need to use the coding we supply. You or your web designer will need to integrate these into the landing page design.

Design A Header/ Footer
To keep your site’s look and feel throughout you will need to design a header and footer to sit through our application. They should include the site name and any relevant images or logos for the premium template.

Submit For Approval
Once the landing page is live and it all links through correctly, we will then be able to set your site live.

After this, you’re up and running and ready to promote… this is where your Partner Manager can provide a valuable source of information and knowledge. If you have any other questions or need any help, please contact the Partner Team and they will be happy to help 🙂
