Dating sites can either host the event themselves and sell event tickets online to site members or partner with local networking organizations and local restaurants or venues. Picking the right monetization strategy for your dating site is almost like finding the right romantic partner for yourself.
You need to know yourself (your website and customers), be aware of what the competition is up to, and do a little experimenting (but not too much!
Some sites give users access to basic site features and offer access to extra tools or content for a small fee.
For example, let users pay for a “boost” to show up in more searches or have them make a small payment to see more information about potential matches.
Fair warning: this method will only be successful for your site if you make it easy for users to make micropayments.
