How Dating Sites are gaining success within a niche market

There are 7 billion people residing on Earth. With all of this variety available it makes you deliberate as to why there are so many singletons out there.

Perhaps it’s because we live in a fast paced world where people are too caught up to partner up or acknowledge it as a significant pursuit in their lives. Technology merged with evolution has generated a unique breed of people and we do not all share the same ideals like the good old days.

Today’s Online Dating has comprised itself into an easy access technology for a person to find their soulmate with the click of a button. It is currently a $2 billion dollar per year industry, with over 1500 dating sites world-wide 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 enormous success with the following of members on their sites. Some international sites proudly promote unbelieveable 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 connecting a lot of people with each other.

Over time in this industry I think people have gotten tired and confused in the ‘General’ online dating websites. Wasting time on meaningless dialogue and pointless 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 discover your prince.

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

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

The niche dating sites available are endless, probably if you can think it, there has been one created. 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 stumble across a site for inmates, geeks and people who like to dance.

There is no doubt catering to a specific audience could be a very lucrative market. It sounds like a fun experience to set foot in a world where everyone shares the same ideals. Everybody deserves love, why not have it with someone you like?

The challenges of Anger Management

Anger is the natural emotion humans feel in responding to a perceived threat, frustration, assault or obstruction to our humanity and who we are.
For men, anger is their most common and immediate reaction to the experience of physical or emotional pain and fear.

Often anger will show up most in a man’s relationship with his partner, and this can develop into violence toward her.

For a partner over time she becomes sick of living with fear, intimidation and humiliation, and usually in time, finds the strength to give him an ultimatum “You get fixed or I’ll get out”.

There needs to be a distinction between anger and violence. Anger is an emotion. Violence is what some people might do when they are angry, or even when they are not. Violence can be physical, emotional or spiritual.

For many men their softer emotions of fear and sadness have been covered or not expressed. They have been taught “Be a man. Be strong. Take control of your life – even if you fail. But don’t show your true feelings – especially your pain and fear”. They only have access to their anger. Anger can cover so much of a man’s personal pain.

The good news is that you can solve your anger problem. Not by berating yourself as sick or sinful, but by recognizing yourself as a human being with an emotional life experience as well as a rational one.

The challenge is not really to work against your anger, but to become aware of where it comes from. To take control of your anger and direct what you do with it.
Anger is not about control. It is about loss of control. For most men losing control is painful and fearful. You can feel vulnerable and feel like you’ve failed. Sometime men fear the consequences of losing control more than just about anything else. The pain of failure and the fear of losing control drives much of men’s anger.

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 absolutely changed not just the way we interact, but more importantly the way that a customer will deal with business.

With over 900 million users worldwide, Facebook on its own is a gargantuan marketing entity, and of course there are many others such as Youtube, Twitter, Google Plus and Linkedin. Although there is a lot of media hype and hysteria, social media sites have fundamentally changed the way that any kind of company with a public presence operates, and are now as necessary to businesses as an email address and a homepage.

But with all of the clear differences that social media has brought to the marketing environment, it is crucial to gain a realistic assessment of its capabilities and results.

Unfortunately, with any kind of new marketing bandwagon comes a great many dishonest or clueless firms and “social media experts” that focus on naïve businesses by over-hyping and under-delivering.

Many millions of dollars and incalculable time is wasted on useless social media ventures every year. Social media is not magic. Without solid marketing and business fundamentals behind it, a social media presence will inevitably fail and simply be a waste of time and money.

Despite hyping the impression of ’no-cost’ advertising with ‘zero’ start-up and/or hosting fees, social media needs a continual presence, fresh content and site maintenance in order to be successful, which demands valuable time spent on it that many companies simply can’t afford to spare. That’s why Social Media Brisbane does the work for you, while still allowing for oversight and approval by their clients.

Examples of where businesses often do the wrong thing with social media include:

• Bad Content
Tedious or plagiarised items, outdated advice, and painful attempts to be groovy are common regarding content published online. Be honest with yourself, people who do business on the internet are perceptive, and will recognise smarm and condescension a mile away.

• Impatience
Developing a strong online social network takes time and diligence. A successful network will not sprout up in a day, it takes time and content to see results. Some businesses will start up a social media profile, watch the results for a short period of time and then give up in frustration when they don’t receive the unrealistic results they hoped for.
This also ties into:

• Consistency
Spacing out your content regularly over multiple platforms is far better than using all of your content up at once or especially not updating at all. Nobody likes a spammer, but with the overload of information that we receive on a daily basis, if there isn’t a consistent reminder of your brand’s presence you will be quickly left behind. Even only a weekly update can be fantastic for continuing and increasing relationships with customers.

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

We also integrate revolutionary Search Engine Optimisation procedures into our work, something no other social media group does.

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