Almost everyone loves adventure racing, tracking, canoeing, mountain biking, etc., and doing all that in a good company is always a nice bonus. Thus, if you ever wanted to tweak your SkaDate dating script for a change of pace, end-of-summer/fall is the best time to get into the Outdoor Dating Niche.
Indeed, outdoor recreation is such a wide concept, there will always be demo for a niche website owner to target. From simple camping and backpacking to scuba diving and parasailing, the scope is enormous here, both in terms of possible physical load and potential affordability range.
The one thing that remains constant is the niche enthusiasts’ appreciation of nature, adventure, and close social interaction. That is why websites based on the formula of uniting people with the same affection for outdoors is such a winning concept.
Like-minded people bonding over the same hobby is one thing, but using a service for uniting singles and groups around actual joint activity is another. Just like in real life, friendships and romances tend to be much stronger if they are forged in shared experience. Think about it, members might initially use the site looking for activity partners, and switch to dating later, once they get to know each other.
There’s also the matter of a lot of additional content on outdoor dating sites, which always attracts new visitors. With all the photo reports, diary blog posts, and event planning updates all the time, the site will never look stale and instead will feel busy.
Oh and don’t be fooled with the opening of this post. It is true, that late-summer and fall is the best time for the majority of outdoor activities; however, recreation opportunities actually spread throughout the entire year. Think horseback riding in spring, water sports in summer or skiing in winter. In fact, a dating site owner can encourage members to join new events all year long, creating a tightly-knit and healthy community in the process.
Interestingly, the niche is most popular in the UK of all places, with Outdoorduo.co.uk, Wildpeople.co.uk, OutdoorDating.co.uk, and DateActive.co.uk as the brightest examples. Well, even better, use your chance to launch a US-based site now, while the competition is limited. Good luck and see you next month in Niche 101.
