How Dating Sites are gaining success within a niche market

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

Maybe it’s because we live in a fast paced world where people are too busy to partner up or understand it as a significant pursuit in their lives. Technology aligned with evolution has created 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 boasts 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 enterprises 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 pointless dialogue and useless chatting only to discover there is not much in sync 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 hard and fast. Obviously someone discovered a need and leaped at the opportunity to join people within a niche 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 better couple. It was proven 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 limitless, 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 come 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 productive market. It sounds like a fun experience to set foot in a world where everyone shares the same interest. Everybody deserves love, why not share it with someone you like?

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

On-line social media has totally altered not just the way we interact, but more importantly the way that clients fundamentally interact with business interests.

With more than 700 million people using the internet world-wide, Facebook on its own is a gargantuan marketing body, not to mention other social media powerhouses such as Twitter, Youtube, Linkedin and Google Plus. Although we are subject to much media hype and hysteria, social media sites have fundamentally changed the way that all kinds of business with a public presence operates, and are now as essential to a business as an email address and a website.

But along with all the clear differences that social media has made to marketing, it is necessary to hold a realistic assessment of its capabilities and results.

Sadly, with any kind of new marketing bandwagon comes innumerable dishonest or clueless companies and “social media experts” who focus on naïve businesses by promising the world and being unable to deliver.

Many millions of dollars and an immeasurable amount of time is utterly wasted on useless social media ideas every day. But social media is not magic. Without proper marketing and business basics behind it, a social media presence can only fail and -depressingly- be a waste of time and money.

Despite hyping the impression of ‘free’ advertising with its lack of start-up and/or hosting fees, social media must have a continual presence, fresh content and site maintenance to show good results, which means valuable time spent on it that many companies can’t spare. This is where Social Media Brisbane offers to do the work for you, while still allowing for oversight and approval by clients.

Examples of how companies commonly do the wrong thing with social media include:

• Bad Content
Dreary or even stolen items, outdated advice, and terrible attempts to be hip are common regarding what is published online. People on the internet are quite shrewd, and will sniff out hypocrisy and condescension without too much trouble.

• Impatience
Building a strong online social network takes time and resolve. A successful network doesn’t shoot up in a snap, you need time and content in order to grow. A business may create a social media profile, watch the results for a short period of time and then give up in annoyance when they don’t get the results they expected.
This also ties into:

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

The team here at Social Media Brisbane know exactly how social media operates, and deal with it as a part of your marketing strategy rather than the only important tactic.

Most importantly, we also integrate revolutionary Search Engine Optimization methods into our work, something no other social media group does.

Choosing consultants who value gimmicks over content and who throw around buzzwords like “viral” or “Web 2.0” instead of providing strategy and goals will only result in it having been an exercise in frustration.
