Target dating sites age niches: Registrations increases per age ranges
Looking at Traffic Mansion data, comparing 2021 with 2022, there was a slight increase in the 18-24, 25-34 and 55-64 year age ranges. Here are the percentages for sign-ups across all age ranges:
The dating vertical is one which includes very specific niches, some of them focused on age groups, with specialized sites for different age groups, such as Dating for the over 50s, Senior Dating, Millennial dating, etc. This is something important to take into account when you target dating sites to promote your offers, so that you can adapt your ad texts and creatives to match your communication style to appeal to specific age groups.
For instance, if you are promoting a Games offer on sites focused on Millennial dating, remember to build your promo around games and content aimed at younger audiences. For example:
- Use phrases that appeal to this age group, here is a glossary of Gaming slang for young people.
- Feature images of young people playing games, or screen shots of popular characters of young gamers.
- Use lots of emojis, and abbreviated expressions such as GOAT (Greatest Of All Time), FTW (For The Win), etc.
Learn from your daters’ behavior: Sign up Peaks and device usage
On Traffic Mansion’s network of dating sites, sign up peaks happened globally, in January and February in 2022, with the build-up to Valentine’s Day, and in June and July in 2021, where lots of daters make the most of the hot weather, seeking a summer romance! We can see an increase in signups from 2021 to 2022, with medium signup rates spreading out all the way to September in 2022:
Red = Highest peak
Orange = Medium peak
Grey = Normal
As we can see above, in 2021, as life was slowly going back to normal after the pandemic, signups for Traffic Mansion dating sites didn’t fully peak until June and July, where the warmer weather allowed for a more active social scene – However, we can still see a medium level of signups during Valentine’s. In 2022, as the social scene has fully recovered, we can see the highest peak of signups in January (daters most likely wanted to start the year finding a special partner) and in February, as a result of the buildup towards Valentine’s Day. We can expect a similar increase in Valentine’s Day sign ups this year.
According to Traffic Mansion, Mobile has been the device that has been used the most, and the one that has displayed growth in usage from 2021 to 2022. This is mainly because potential daters will look through dating profiles when they commute back and forth from and to work, stuck in traffic, during breaks, and at home, all with the convenience of their phone. In 2021, most of the population were still working from home, using their laptops and tablets more than they would compared to more normal times, when the day is spent mostly outside of the house, making the phone the personal device of preference.
