International online relationship and dating network Mamboo launches in UK to give social communities an additional offering!
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Mamboo , one of the largest free online dating services is launching in the UK to enable online communities and audience driven websites an opportunity to offer dating as a value-add service and add an additional revenue stream.
Communities working with Mamboo pay NO fee for its service and do not need to invest in additional software, development, design, support or billing - they can simply become the white label partner and begin to generate revenue.
This is done via the simple micropayments system, which members use to purchase special privileges such as featured profile helping them become more prominent and popular on the white label site.
The Mamboo service is the first white label dating system to be completely free to join and use by its members. Not only available online, Mamboos dating service is also mobile via its application for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices and in early 2011 handsets running the Android, Bada and Java operating systems will be introduced.
With over 10 years in the global online dating industry (which is estimated to be worth $4billion globally*) Mamboo already boasts over 10,000 white label partners which combined have a user base of over 7 million active users. Each day over 1 million people use the Mamboo platform to communicate and more than 60,000 users are dating online at any one time.
Current community partners are seeing a constant month-by-month growth on average 5% of the overall community population will join and utilise a dating service if available via their preferred online community.
Max Rennenberg, UK sales & marketing director, Mamboo said: Opening up the Mamboo platform within the UK and enabling partners with online and mobile communities to offer a free dating service not only brings a new revenue option for the community owner, but also enables them to offer an excellent and trusted value-add service to their user base. For communities already offering a dating service Mamboo makes it simple to switch to their service and ultimately make more money.
