Tac­tic Num­ber 3; Pro­vide a Per­sonal Touch to solve prob­lems.

It has been stated above that clients visit dat­ing sites be­cause there was a cer­tain need that needed to be re­solved, or that needed a ‘third hand’ in most of the times. It is im­por­tant to en­sure that this need is ad­dressed to the sat­is­fac­tion of a dat­ing site client in one way or the other. In the event that the Dat­ing Site Owner is an ex­pert in love mat­ters, then it is high time that they use their ex­per­tise to re­solve per­sonal prob­lems that their clients have.

In the event that the Dat­ing Site Owner is not an ex­pert in love mat­ters then one must em­ploy the ser­vices of dif­fer­ent ex­perts who are skilled in dif­fer­ent love re­lated dis­ci­plines and / or (patho­log­i­cal) con­di­tions. The list of th­ese ex­perts is lim­it­less but in­cludes, and not lim­ited to; Clin­i­cal Psy­chol­o­gists, Mar­riage & Fam­ily Ther­a­pists, Re­la­tion­ship Ex­perts, Psy­cho­sex­ual Ther­a­pists, Mar­riage Coun­sel­lors, and many more. Nat­u­rally the site will ad­ver­tise that such a ser­vice is avail­able at an ex­tra cost. It is pub­lic knowl­edge that most clients spend more than 5 years on sites search­ing for their life part­ners with­out suc­cess. It is there­fore rea­son­able that such per­sons will not hes­i­tate to pay an ex­tra fee to some­one who will ren­der a pro­fes­sional ser­vice aimed at ad­dress­ing their deeply rooted prob­lems.

It is in­cum­bent on the Dat­ing Site to visit their site to iden­tify such po­ten­tial clients who prob­a­bly need a spe­cial­ist Pro­fes­sional Ser­vice , then ad­vise the client ac­cord­ingly. Most of the time this ser­vice will be done on­line but there is no rea­son why in de­serv­ing sit­u­a­tions a ser­vice can­not be ar­ranged to be per­sonal to the clients. One ex­am­ple is if for ex­am­ple the site is based in Jo­han­nes­burg, the site can ar­range to send their ex­perts on a spe­cific date to Port El­iz­a­beth for 3 days to con­sult with clients who had pre­booked for such con­sul­ta­tions. Tac­tic Num­ber 4; Ar­range Re­treats for your mem­bers.

This will help the de­serv­ing mem­bers to have a time to rec­ol­lect their thoughts, be away from their busy sched­ule, and fo­cus on them­selves with peace and calm. This is also an op­por­tu­nity to ex­pose the mem­bers to po­ten­tial part­ners who are also hav­ing the same chal­lenges. Dur­ing re­treat this pe­riod this is also an op­por­tu­nity to give the nec­es­sary tips to the mem­bers on how to ad­dress var­i­ous is­sues that con­front them in the ‘game of love’…Nat­u­rally the mem­bers will pay the costs of the re­treat them­selves. It is how­ever pos­si­ble to ne­go­ti­ate group discounts with some own­ers of the great places in the hos­pi­tal­ity sec­tor.

Dur­ing the re­treat it is im­por­tant to make sure that all the glam­orous pic­tures for the event are cap­tured to the finest de­tail. Th­ese pic­tures will then be pasted on-site once the re­treat is over. Th­ese pic­tures will be used to mo­ti­vate other clients, and also to boost the im­age of the site… Any suc­cess sto­ries that may be achieved dur­ing the re­treat will be recorded on the site, of course with the per­mis­sion of the rel­e­vant clients. Tac­tic Num­ber 5; Ar­range In­cen­tives for the mem­bers. Hu­man­ity world over do get mo­ti­vated once there is some­thing to re­ceive af­ter some achieve­ment no mat­ter how lit­tle the gift may seem to be in terms of its com­mer­cial value. There are many in­cen­tives that the site can ar­range , and ac­quire free of charge. Some of them in­clude, but are not lim­ited to the fol­low­ing;

Books. There are sev­eral books that can be ac­quired free of charge, ei­ther when the book has just ar­rived and is on pro­mo­tion. Some books are avail­able as ebooks free of charge.

Video Cas­settes. In the same man­ner as in books, there are videos that can be ac­quired free of charge.

Hol­i­days. This can also be ac­quired free of charge if the site ne­go­ti­ates with cer­tain in­sti­tu­tions that are will­ing to pro­mote their ho­tels to new clients. An in­cen­tive can be de­signed that a cou­ple who man­age to make some achieve­ment that is pre­scribed will spend a week-end at a cer­tain 5 star ho­tel, courtesy of the site. Depend­ing on the cir­cum­stances the site can com­bine a full pack­age that in­cludes books, videos, hol­i­days and the like.

In our next fea­ture, we will con­tinue to dis­cuss more ef­fec­tive tac­tics.
