What to expect from LFGdating in 2017

2016 was a banner year at LFGdating. We broke more records than a bull in a vinyl shop, and 2017 is going to be even better. Think of it this way: someone tonight will put his or her head to the pillow and fall asleep knowing that they are in a meaningful relationship with someone they met at LFGdating.

And that’s the goal – isn’t it? I mean, what are we doing here if we aren’t working our butts off to get you and your profile in front of as many people of possible? It’s why 2016 saw our most aggressive advertising and marketing campaigns ever. It’s why we are building an app to push like crazy. It’s why we stay up late at night and then get up early in the morning (thank goodness for scotch and coffee).

2016 was great because our members are great. Patrick and I have the distinct pleasure of responding to every member email that comes through the wire. Sometimes those emails ask us to cancel their subscription plan because they met someone. Sometimes those emails ask us how to write a first message. Regardless of why we hear from our members, we love talking with them. Members, not money, is our lifeblood. What’s the point of spending our life building a gamer dating website worthy of your time if we’re not going to champion our members? Plainly speaking, our members are the greatest part of LFGdating.

What will 2017 bring? Plenty! We’re going to list a few items that we’re going to knock out this year. We feel that sharing this with you will help build trust and enthusiasm. Or if anything, it’ll let you know that when you create a profile, you’ll have created a profile on a site that will be around in 2018. And 2019. And then again from 2020-20forever.

2017 is going to be quite the year…

iOS app launching by the end of March. We’ve been cooking this thing for awhile now. We’d write up a huge piece about it (and we will soon!), but for now, it’s fun just to know this is on the horizon.

Most aggressive advertising and marketing campaign ever. Each year since 2013, we’ve been increasing our advertising and marketing budget. 2017 is no different. We’ve even had some conversations with Twitch streamers about potential sponsorships. We are actively trying to find you as many matches as possible!

Biggest PR campaign to date. Once we have a launch date for our iOS app, we’re partnering with Publicize.co again to spread the word. Publicize did phenomenal work in 2016, and we’re sure they’ll knock it out of the park again this year.

More people creating meaningful relationships than ever before. 2016 saw more people than ever before cancel their subscription because they met someone on LFGdating. It’s sheer numbers at this point. Not only are members finding members more than ever before, they’re finding them faster too.

Special visit to a convention yet to be named… PAX East? Twitch Con? Comic-Con? *Downturns head and smiles wickedly*

More thankful moments than we could ever count. 2016 brought us our first convention, record breaking membership numbers, and countless member interactions. With a full plate for 2017, we can’t wait to help you find someone on LFGdating. We’re thankful when LFGdating works for you.

You’re with us! Enough said!

If you’re reading this and discovering LFGdating for the first time, create a profile and see your matches! We may be exactly what you’ve been looking for – a place to meet someone else who loves to game.

If you’re with us right now or if you’ve been with us for awhile, we can’t wait to bring you new matches in 2017. And thank you for being such a great part of our story so far!
