Online dating is no longer a passing trend. Instead, it's grown into an established industry that helps millions of people around the world find love. By now, it's almost guaranteed that either you or someone you know has connected with someone on a dating website.
That problem is quantity over quality. With so many different dating platforms out there, it can be increasingly difficult for people to find quality matches.
Do you have an idea for the next best online dating platform?
If so, congratulations! But it's not enough to have a great idea. You’ll have trouble attracting a user base if your app doesn’t efficiently connect them with the right people
You need a professional solution that offers a full range of market-tested features right out of the box.
Launching an entire online dating platform from scratch is a challenging task. There are tons of things to consider. It requires extensive research on both the business and the software development sides.
We know that there are plenty of good ideas for dating platforms out there. However, you may not have the time or the expertise to launch one yourself.
That’s why we’ve created our open-source software with people like you in mind.
Expect the development process to take a lot longer if you’re working with a freelancer, and to require more iterations to get the app right.
With SkaDate, YOU DON'T NEED any of the following:
Here’s what YOU DO NEED:
That’s it. Let us take care of the rest.
Let's take a quick look at the simplified development process. Then, we'll identify how SkaDate can help you every step along the way.
Take a look around. Open up the App Store and search for dating apps. The number of options will make your head spin.
But the truth is, many of these platforms are not built with the functionality that helps users find quality matches. Make notes on what is done well and what you can do better.
While you’re doing your research, visit our customer reviews page and learn why our customers rely on our expertise to build their platforms.
What makes your platform stand apart from the rest?
Will you base your matches on user preferences? For example, how important will physical appearance be on your app? Will location searching be a prominent feature? Or will your sign-up questionnaire be the deciding factor?
With SkaDate’s dating software, you can easily build your compatibility matching methodology in any number of ways. From app-based "hot or not" swiping to detailed web-based user preference questionnaires or Google Maps powered proximity searching, your users will be finding matches in no time.
The features you select can make or break your platform. What will your verification process be like? How will users be able to communicate? What membership tiers will you offer, and what will they include?
It could take months to develop every feature from scratch. Instead, we use our extensive experience to provide you with an abundance of well-designed features right out of the box.
Read through our comprehensive feature offerings list here. There's something for everyone. Non-essential features, add-ons, and third-party integrations are also available for more niche requirements. If there's still something you can't find, our development team will be happy to discuss a customized solution.
First, you need to choose your programming language. Will you use Java, Kotlin, C++, Python, PHP, Swift, or something else? What about a database – you could choose MongoDB, SQL, or Redis. What other storefront frameworks or payment processers will you need?
SkaDate takes all these complications out of the equation and builds the platform for you. In case you're curious, our user-friendly script is written in PHP 7. It’s a popular and easy-to-understand programming language for web development. We use MySQL 5, jQuery, and the Smarty template engine to manage data and customize your designs.
Don't forget to plan out your development budget. There are a lot of steps involved with pricing out the various costs of building a dating platform. However, suppose you don't want to get too deep into the weeds. In that case, we offer several different packages for when you’re ready to get started.
This is how you turn your idea into a revenue-generating business. Here are some of the most popular ways of monetizing dating platforms:
