    Are online dating services a good area (profitable) to get into? I mean as affiliate programs go.

    I have read articles that this is a fast growing area of the net, any truth in that?

    Dating is the biggest growing area on the internet. You just need to innovate. Defanjos I think if you know how to push the right dating sites it can be very profitable.

    As an affiliate? yes. Chose carefully from one of the big ones that's been around a while but it's what I make the most money off of other than private ads.

    match.com & oneandonly.com (now the same people)

    both run good programs. Others have approached me to join their affiliate programs but I don't even look at them. I like to run one quality program rather than running 10 and being my own competition.

    A wishbone has never taken place of a backbone.

    >>Any money in Online Dating services?
    No, most of the dates I got didn't have much money and wanted me to pay for everything.

    Merchants: Do you realize that some of your affiliates are being paid commission on sales which you have paid for via PPC, offline advertising, and your targeted mailings?

    Joseph, how I can keep up my reputation for bad humor if you beat me to the perfect set ups?

    The dating sites seem to ebb and flow. New sites generally pay quite well for new clientelle, then the policies and commissions start dropping as they get clients and mature.

    I did well with One&Only before the Match.com merger. Match.com has a low EPC.

    Kiss.com paid quite well when it was with BeFree, but I haven't tried the private program.

    I push Match.com hard, but since they went to Linkshare, my commissions have been turned off like a faucet.

    When Match ran their one aff program, I routinely pulled 1500-2000 per month. Since they've gone to Linkshare, I have like 100+ 'Orders' per month and maybe 1 or 2 'Items' for which I'll make maybe $150 if I'm lucky.

    Has ANYONE ELSE experienced this?
