The challenge with Tinder is acquisition, specifically, relevant acquisition. Swipers are generally on a rampage, flicking left with ferocity, so you need something that will make them stop in their tracks.
That’s either a gimmick, or something that defines your greatness. The gimmick will probably result in a screenshot of your profile and a laugh to their friends.
The greatness profile is exactly where you want to be. My experiment revolved around the ‘ABC’ of profile acquisition, conversion and retention.
For the Appearance, carefully select six best representations of your lifestyle, and proceeded to rotate these on a weekly basis:
Next, change Bio to include specific call-to-action elements that are relevant to target audience. This included:
Thirdly, was the Chat, perhaps the single most important element, as this is what will land you a date. Although this wasn’t necessarily an experiment
a) Start of with something that isn’t too Generic or boring
b) Don’t push for a meet up or a date, AS SOON as the conversation has begun (90% of guys do this), and you’ve barely found out any thing about her (what would she think you want to meet up with her for?.. qualify her a bit, tell her why you want to meet up)
c) Be clear in your intentions, and suggest you guys meet up some other time (one trick: say ‘ YOU WOULD suggest you meet up, but not sure she won’t turn into a creepy stalker’; it flips the table, and 99% of the time has great results).
