    I'm in the process of launching my own dating site and I would like some advice on how to monetize it properly since I haven't done anything like that before.

    Traffic to the site won't be a problem, but I'm more concerned on what pricing strategy should I use immediately after the launch of the site.

    It's obvious there won't be any members on the site immediately from the beginning of the launch. This is my biggest problem because the real value of dating sites are members. Since the site won't have many members immediately after the launch, I'm planning to give a free membership to the first 1000 male and 1000 female members.
    Once all free memberships are filled up, every new member that comes to the site will have to pay for the membership just like on any other paid dating site.

    I don't know if this is the right strategy of doing it so I would like some advice from you guys. I'll use your advice and report back how it works.

    Also it would be nice if somebody suggested some good resources on how to launch your own dating site... I'm already using this forum to widen my horizons, if anybody knows any books or teaching videos or something similar, just shoot it out. Thx

    I'd be interested to hear about how you're bringing traffic to the website. i always find that traffic is the biggest problem of any website.
