Empty Profiles - The Curse of the Dating Website

By: Trevor Taylor

Most dating sites will inform members of the importance of adding photos to their profile, and many, including our own sugar daddy dating site, offer the facility of password protecting their personal pics so they are able to choose who will view them. However a staggering seventy-eight percent of dating site members we interviewed, informed us that they will only search for members who include a photograph with their profile.

I, personally can never understand how anyone can join a dating website and not bother to fill in his or her profile. How can they ever expect to create interest from other members, and my guess is they will not get a single response in their inbox. After all, your profile is your salespage. An opportunity to present yourself to the world.. describing not just your physical statistics but likes and dislikes, a brief synopsis of your character and a reasonably detailed description of your ideal mate. The addition of a photo or two will be sure to increase the level of interest in your profile by three hundred percent at very least.

So how do dating site owners encourage their membership to present a quality profile that will not only increase the chances of creating interest but also enhance the whole website, as we are all in agreement that incomplete profiles are a complete waste of time and space.

Although we have only recently launched our sugar daddy dating site, we have taken a fair yet strong stance in the problem of empty profiles.

We do not believe that nagging the member with a constant stream of email reminders will entice them to return to the site, solely to complete their profile. Quite the reverse, in fact badgering would be more likely to ensure that the member never returned to the site again.

We firmly believe that the process of creating the profile needs to be completed at the time the user registers as a member. In an effort to ensure that the whole profile is completed during the registration process we have introduced an extension to the free membership period for those who create a complete profile at that time. So now, in addition to the thirty days free trial period, we offer a further thirty days to those who complete their profile at the time of registration. And to further discourage those who still decide to display no information, such profiles will auto-delete if not completed within seven days.

Any dating website can only be judged on it's quality of membership, and whether joining as a free member or upgrading to paying member, once you register at a dating site you have a moral obligation to create a profile and present yourself to other members who have the same interest as you. Otherwise you have nothing to offer that particular dating community and there is little point in you registering to become a member.

Although it's early days yet, the first signs are encouraging at our own sugar daddy dating site and we hope this move will enable us to to maintain a dating community with a one hundred percent profile completionFeature Articles, which can only benefit our genuine members.
