Match.com, the world's largest relationship network, announced today the launch of the "Insiders' Guide" -- a new source for singles to get insider secrets and reliable advice from current Match.com members, as well as former members who have already found love on Match.com.
The tips and advice gathered for the Insiders' Guide were collected from Match.com's community of over 15 million members. The Insiders' Guide, which is free to all Match.com members, aims to enhance member confidence and success with the tips proven to help find love online. Part of this advice includes suggestions on how to write the ideal online profile, as well as how to take the next step once they have met someone they really like.
"At Match.com we understand the impact of word of mouth advice. It's this trusted perspective and expertise of actual members that people take to heart and ultimately act on," said Craig Wax, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Match.com. "The Insiders' Guide brings this concept to life through seven tips, shared by ten successful members in an interactive web-chat format."
Match.com's "insiders" share proven advice throughout the Insider's Guide, including:
1. Make Your Profile Pop (from member 2BADandAG): Describing what makes you tick and what you are looking for in a partner will give others a clearer snapshot of who you are. 2. Be a Good Citizen (from member Sunsusie7): Put your best self forward, be truthful, be courteous and be upfront about who you're looking for. 3. Stay Active, Stay Positive (from Ira and Nancy in Dallas): Updating your profile with interesting facts and photos of things you currently are doing will give fresh information and new reasons for people to contact you. 4. Take a Second Look (from member Milosmom): Be willing to take a second look and expand your search criteria. When you do, you may be pleasantly surprised by the results! 5. Explore the Tools (from member Solman2007): Take advantage of all the ways Match.com gives you to communicate with someone -- anonymous email, instant messenger or use Match.com's MatchTalk to make the first phone call. 6. Pace it Right (from member Denver7476): Take the time to email back and forth through Match.com's double-blind, totally private email system. Then move up to a phone call or two. If you're still interested, plan a time to meet at a coffee shop or restaurant. Visit Match.com today to download your free copy of the Insiders' Guide. Match.com
