  1. After investigating the competition in the online dating world, I believe the last thing I will do is to create a dating website.

  2. Would love to see eMatchopolis added to the list Dave :-)

  3. Launching a dating site on a white label dating platform isn’t the same as launching a dating site. I know that plenty of people have done it, but it’s generally a suckers’ bet. And please.. feel free to correct me if any of my assumptions are wrong.

    Say I want to create a Jewish Singles site on a white label platform.
    1. Pick name
    2. Pick white label platform
    3. Launch (with the exact same features available to me as anyone else on the platform
    4. Spend marketing dollars to try to get people to come to my site.
    5. Someone else creates a Jewish Singles site on the same platform.
    6. They have 10x the marketing dollars I have
    7. I lose all of my members because there’s no differentiators between my site and theirs.
    8. I shut down my site.

    For someone to succeed in this market they need to offer something new and different. A white label platform seems like it MIGHT be a good way to start developing your community, except for the fact that many white label platforms make it difficult to take your users with you — and even if they let you — they will often continue marketing to those people even after you’ve left their platform.
