How Dating Sites are gaining success within a niche market

There are 7 billion people living on Earth. With all of this variety available it makes you question why there are so many singletons out there.

Perhaps it’s because we live in a fast paced society where people are too caught up to partner up or approach it as a priority in their lives. Technology merged with evolution has developed a unique breed of people and we do not all share the same commonalities like the good old days.

Today’s Online Dating has comprised itself into an easy access technology for a person to fall in love with the click of a button. It is presently a $2 billion dollar per year industry, with over 1500 dating sites internationally and brags to been liable for around 280,000 marriages as a result of people hooking up. In Australia, statistically 1 in 10 has found love online and 1 in 6 of those people was between the ages 35-44.

There is no doubt the popularity of the ‘General’ online dating websites out there have had huge success with the following of members on their sites. Some international sites proudly promote incredible numbers of 30 million plus. As majority of sites offer a free sign up it is not quite clear on how many of those 30 million are paying subscriptions, never the less these websites are uniting a lot of people with each other.

Over time in this industry I think people have gotten bored and lost in the ‘General’ online dating websites. Wasting time on useless dialogue and meaningless chatting only to discover there is not much in common with the other party. Some might say you need to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince.

Niche online dating websites have launched on to the scene thick and fast. Obviously someone noticed a need and leaped at the opportunity to connect people within a specific market. To specify the playing field, so to speak. People bond best when they have something in common. Beliefs, hobbies, race, sexual preference or lifestyle choice can class people to meet other [compatible~accordant} singles.

Scientists have performed studies to find out if in fact like-minded people or constrasting people make the more suitable couple. It was discovered that people with corresponding temperaments and world views were more likely to enjoy success and have conflict free marriages than the opposite couples. It is also put forward that people with similar interests were
more likely to meet up in person off the sites.

The niche dating sites available are limitless, probably if you can think it, there has been one formed. From Gay to Pet lovers, Christian groups and other religious followings, Asian, Interracial, Vegetarians, Farmers, Cheaters, Beautiful people (ugly people need not apply), Punks, Seniors, Cougars, Sugar Daddies, Military, Single parents, Tall people, big people and even small people. I even managed to come upon a site for inmates, geeks and people who like to dance.

There is no doubt catering to a specific audience could be a very effective market. It sounds like an enjoyeable experience to enter a world where everyone shares the same ideals. Everybody deserves love, why not find it with someone you like?

Porn Addiction – a growing phenomenon.

Over the last few years I have noticed a huge increase in the number of clients coming to see me for pornography addiction. With the easy access of porn on line, and on tablets and phones, many men are having trouble resisting the urge to view porn more and more often, and it can be scary how quickly this can turn to an addiction.

Some of the key elements in the development of a porn addiction are starting to watch porn at a young age, controlling or uninvolved parents, loneliness and isolation, seeing a model of unhealthy relationships and early sexual abuse.

Once you have realized that you are addicted, your path to freedom starts with the realization that you’ve lost control around sex. You begin to acknowledge that you’re acting regressively and that you are probably a mature man in many ways, but you don’t understand intimacy and have confused intimacy with sexual activity.

Another thing that can be a he realisation is that you can’t get enough of what won’t satisfy you. Objectifying and sexualizing people is an never ending, negative process that yields a few minutes of excitement, a brief orgasm, then hours, days, weeks, months and years of fear, pain, shame, self doubt, self criticism, judgement and anger.

Doing this work will free you from the shackles of your negative sexual story.

Many men who have done so look back and see this as their rite of passage into true manhood, free of old compulsive sexuality. You can then take the energy you are expending on addictive behavior and channel it into a more satisfying career, intimacy and better relationships with a partner and with your family and friends. You’ll really get a life in the full sense.

Counselling for Porn addiction with qualified and experience Psychologists is available in 60 locations Australia wide at the Hart Centre. Call 1300 830 552 to find out more.

The benefits of a steel rainwater tank

Queenslandwide steel rainwater tanks are an increasingly common sight across the Australian suburban landscape, and for good reason. We live in a hot, dry country where every drop counts, and many homeowners are eager to protect the earth’s precious resources and save money at the same time. While earlier models tended to be bulky and unattractive, the latest domestic water tanks are specially designed to fit into awkward spaces and complement modern architecture. Steel is proving to be the correct choice, not only for its stylish looks, but for its durability.

Space is a premium on urban blocks with smaller land sizes. Because of this Queenslandwide’s extensive range of custom-size slimline water tanks are increasingly popular in urban areas of Australia, where space is a real problem. These slimline water tanks have evolved so oval tanks, rectangular tanks and other configurations meet the needs of customers who don’t have the space to fit the traditional round water tanks on their blocks.

The benefits of a steel rainwater tank for your home are considerable and will offer you plenty of return on your investment, and you don’t need to live in a rain forest area or a high rain density area to have one.

Australia is now embracing the water tank phenomenon and at Queenslandwide Tanks, we are here to help you with all you need to know when it comes to rainwater harvesting. When you invest in a Aquaplate water tank, you will be able to collect most of the rain that falls on your roof if you have it connected to your gutters and downpipes. For example, if 10mm of rain falls onto about 100m2 of your roof, you will collect about 1000 Litres of rainwater into your water tank. Just imagine, after 4 days of light rain you could easily harvest around 4000 litres of rainwater.

The benefit of rainwater tanks are endless and of course ensures that your home becomes environmentally friendly. You can reduce the amount of water used from the main supply therefore reducing your drain on this precious resource. By reducing the demand on mains water to your home, you will reduce your water bills, and by connecting the rainwater tank to a rainwater pump you will be able to water your gardens, wash your cars and fill your swimming pool whenever you want at no cost.

The other benefits of installing a Slimline rain water tank in your home are the government rebates now available to residents across Australia. And did you know that rainwater is actually less salty than dam supplies therefore it is much healthier for your gardens and appliances like your washing machine as they will actually be better of using rain water. The other benefit of owning rain water tanks means that you will never have to worry about water restrictions around the home for washing your car and watering your garden.

Imagine how easy it would be to wash your car with rainwater whenever you like, and imagine how beautiful your lawn and plants are going to look when you start using rainwater for your garden.

It’s best to use the water in the tank on a regular basis so there is always storage capacity available in the water tank when it rains. By connecting your water tank to a washing machine or toilet, you will get good use of the tanks supply and will allow rainfall to re-fill the rain water tank more often. By using the water tank this way you will maximize the amount of rainwater you will harvest and the money you will save.

Social Media for Brisbane Businesses Explained

Online social media has utterly altered not just the way users interact, but essentially the way that clients interact with businesses.

With over 900 million users world-wide, Facebook alone is a gigantic marketing entity, and of course there are many others such as Youtube, Twitter, Linkedin and Google Plus. While we are subject to a lot of media hype and hysteria, social media sites have fundamentally altered the way that all types of business with a public presence will operate, and are now as fundamental to businesses as an email address and a website.

But with all the clear differences that social media has made to the marketing environment, it is essential to have a realistic perspective of its capabilities and results.

With any kind of new marketing bandwagon comes a multitude of dishonest or impractical companies and “social media experts” which prey on new businesses by over-hyping the possibilities but under-delivering.

Millions of dollars and an immeasurable amount of time is wasted on useless social media ventures every year. But social media is not magic. Without proper marketing and business basics behind you, an online social media presence will inevitably fail and -depressingly- be a waste of time and money.

Despite creating the illusion of ’no-cost’ advertising with ‘zero’ start-up and hosting fees, social media needs a constant presence, fresh content and site maintenance to show good results, and that means valuable time that many companies can’t afford to spare. That’s why Social Media Brisbane does all the work for you, while encouraging room for oversight and approval by their clients.

Examples of how businesses commonly go wrong with social media include:

• Bad Content
Tiresome or stolen items, outdated suggestions, and terrible attempts to be current are all too common regarding what is published online. Be real: people on the internet are generally savvy, and can sniff out deviousness and condescension without too much trouble.

• Impatience
Building a healthy online social network takes time and resolve. A successful network will not sprout up in a jiffy, you need time and content in order to grow. Some businesses will start up a social media profile, watch their results for a short period of time and then quit with frustration when they don’t see the results they expected.
This also ties into:

• Consistency
Spacing out your content on a regular basis over numerous platforms is a lot better than using up all your content at once or especially not updating at all. Nobody likes a spammer, but with the overload of information that we encounter every day, if there isn’t a consistent reminder of your brand’s presence you will quickly be left behind. Even only a fortnightly update will do wonders for sustaining and developing relationships with customers.

The team here at Social Media Brisbane are highly experienced and know exactly how social media operates, and treat it as a interrelated part of your marketing strategy rather than the be all and end all.

Most importantly, we also integrate revolutionary Search Engine Optimisation methods into our work, which is something that no other social media group offers.

Choosing consultants that concentrate on gimmicks before content and who endlessly throw around buzzwords like “viral” or “Web 2.0” instead of showing strategy and results can only end up as an exercise in frustration.
