Although Peter says he would prefer Match. A few de tweaks would be good think OkCupid's de , but the company is clearly doing something right. If you are looking for ways to meet someone special online, you're not lacking options. Bumble, Christian Mingle, Tinder, eharmony, and Zoosk are just a few popular dating apps and websites. In today's Pricing Teardown we are reviewing two profitable, but very different, dating sites — the generalist Match.
Although Match. Whereas Match. Those without a tractor or at least an affinity for the country life need not apply. Let's take a look at their price strategy and discover how it relates to their buyer personas and registration process. In addition to having different target markets, Match.
The de of Match. However, it takes time to fill out all of the information. By the time you get to the pricing , the differences are not very clear in terms of package benefits and are somewhat misleading. For example, Match. But in the small print above, it's discovered that these features are not included in the basic plan. As Peter says, it's a little trickery from a de perspective. This misleading de tactic is an annoying pattern that is often the case with website -ups and another argument for functionality over attractiveness.
In addition to being misleading, the plans are also confusing. Another interesting thing to note with Match is that photos of people already on the site are presented before you even finish ing up. It serves to play on your emotions. You can only see all of these people if you complete registration. To really do anything on the site such as communicating with other members, you have to pay. It's not difficult to see immediately who FarmersOnly is targeting as the website has a very straightforward de. If the audience is not apparent just based on the company name, the website provides a good indication.
Aimed at singles who live in rural areas, FarmersOnly asks for standard contact information and dating preferences before taking you to the pricing . Although not extremely beautiful from a de perspective, the process is clear and functional. Benefits are clearly listed at the top of the for upgrading. It's also not a hassle to up, which seems important considering who they are targeting busy farmers and people working outdoors. Both -up processes for Match. If you're looking to find a farmer, rancher, cowboy, cowgirl or animal lover, FarmersOnly claims to be the place to go.
While there have been other companies who have tried starting niche dating sites such as for vegans and dog lovers, FarmersOnly has successfully honed in on a specific, but wide audience. That said, there are very stark differences between FarmersOnly and Match in terms of population density. When we asked 2, current and prospective FarmersOnly and Match. It's interesting to find that the rural audience is almost 2X less willing to pay for Match. This data suggests that the market is only interested in dating sites if they're specialized. We've seen these location-based pricing preferences before.
When we tore down The New York Times pricing we found that metro-livers were more willing to pay for the newspaper than country-dwellers. This is more evidence that location is a fundamental component of pricing. Although the site is targeting a wide range audience, Match needs a massive base to justify this, whereas FarmersOnly's niche is easier to defend. FarmersOnly clearly understands who they are marketing to and shows the power of the niche. The willingness to pay for Match.
Again, this data demonstrates how Match is after a generalized audience. In terms of age, we found that, just as with our Tinder vs Bumble comparison, males are typically willing to pay more for dating services, while females are generally more inbound. As Patrick explains, the range here for females is lower than the range for males, but the FarmersOnly's niche is basically protecting the bottom line and then it becomes a measure of the total adjustable market.
This suggests that both genders are willing to pay to find someone who matches their lifestyle, giving FarmersOnly the ability to build a sustainable business. Match, being generalized, needs to get more people on their site. A bottleneck is created when the female audience is not really willing to pay the upgrade prices. The site can only work effectively if both males and females have similar membership plans. That's why Match, I believe, owns Tinder. Age plays a ificant role with dating websites. As you get older, your willingness to pay for dating increases.
Look at the ificant range with age on Match. Apps like Tinder and Bumble are aggressively competing for this segment. What's interesting to note with FarmersOnly, the base of the site is lower than those who are older but it has a really good heavy floor. This demonstrates the power of the niche and why you've seen various niche sites popping up, such as Christian Mingle. Generalized dating sites have to get to a critical mass in order to build a really good business.
Sites like Hinge are working to fix their focus and even Bumble is doing things in addition to dating such as looking at the entire relationship. Most dating sites and apps, rather than going completely niche, are going niche from an experience standpoint. Lesson learned: Don't be afraid of the niche. If you have a high enough target market, there can be a higher willingness to pay than the general type of user.
FarmersOnly can use this knowledge to go into different niches. Founder Jerry Miller has already created another niche dating site called CurvesConnect for people with extra curves. Also, understand the segments of your customers and their willingness to pay. As with FarmersOnly, this will guide how you advertise, your content, policies, etc. In this week's teardown we take a look at the pricing strategies of office tool titans Office and G Suite.
