Ways to Sell

There are a variety of ways a member can sell a date:

Standing Offer date:

Members can describe (or post a video) a date or skilled time (i.e. singer, cook, etc.) that you are offering, and your price, i.e. wedding singer, $400/hour, or a keynote speaker, $1,000/hour, or a simple one hour dinner conversation (in location and time of your choosing), etc. Members can leave a standing offer on their profile, and arrange dates based on buyer requests- or member can utilize the calendar tool on their profile and easily designate their dates and times of availability. See our Safety Tips section for suggestions on how to maximize safety and provide a good date experience.

Auction a date:

Members can choose to offer a specific date, time, location, and minimum bid (reserve price), and then have an extended (couple days/ weeks/ months) auction for their date. As with all types of dates offered, it is entirely up to the seller whether or not to accept a date- and likewise with an auction, the seller has the option to not accept the highest bidder for a date.

Day in the Life date:

Always wondered what it was like behind the scenes of your favorite sports team, production set, restaurant, business, etc. Member sellers can offer buyers a chance to come along for "a day in the life" of their unique job, hobby, or skillset. Employment recruiters can even offer a free "day in the life" working at their company, to find prospective new employees.

Fantasy Character date:

Members have the ability to create fantasy characters that they will go "in character" for the duration of their date... i.e. always wanted to go to dinner with Benjamin Franklin, well some of the more drama oriented members may offer this fantasy character for a price- search the ever growing variety of characters offered. If the price is right, a member could even petition their favorite TV celebrity to go to lunch with you "in character" (and that celebrity could donate a portion of the date price to their favorite charity).

Reply to a 'Date Wanted' listing:

Using our Create a Date Wanted feature, buyer members can describe a specific type of 'date' they are looking to buy, and what they would pay for it. A member seller can use the browse 'Dates Wanted' feature, to view the many types of dates wanted by other members, and respond with an offer to sell them such date. Although, in this case, it is up to the buyer member to decide whomever they find best suited, and which member seller's offer to accept.

See our Sample Profiles section for some examples of how you can set up, and variety of ways you can sell dates with your member profile.

Selling Overview

Member sellers can create a profile with text/pictures/videos/links to advertise their talents, expertise, availability, rate, etc., and have sole discretion to adjust price and availability of their time. Also the who, what, when, where, why, and how are all solely decided (and/or negotiated or accepted) by the member offering time. See Suggestions/Tips section for more selling tips and issues best to discuss and negotiate prior to a date).

Members may verify and get to know each other better (through email, video, chat or links), or clarify details of the date with negotiation. A member buyer may request a date (or further information) with any member seller, but it is entirely up to the seller as to whether or not to accept the requested date (or share further information).

Selling a date is as easy as:

1. Create a member profile

2. Choose a Category and Title

Increase your profile views: Be sure to include keywords that buyers will search for, unique or descriptive attributes, and always check your spelling. Your date title and description is critical in helping users find your profile and dates offered. Emphasize words that buyers would actually use to search for you or your date.

3. Add Pictures/Videos

Include photos and videos on your member profile: A picture is worth a thousand words. And a video gives potential buyers an even better opportunity to view a bit of your charm and appeal. Use clear, well-lit photos and videos to showcase yourself or talents.

4. Describe Your Date

Describe your date in detail: A good description is concise, well organized, and easy to read. Create bold section headlines, bulleted lists, and be sure to include date style/type, and other attributes. Think about your listing from the buyer's perspective. The more information you provide, the more likely buyers are to place a bid.

5. Select Date Type, Price, and Payment Method

Select which type(s) of date(s) you are offering and your price. Accept several methods of online payments. Member sellers can choose that all payments are made upfront before the date... or members can negotiate to utilize our Escrow Service which holds the payment until the date is satisfactorily completed. It is up to the members to choose and agree what they prefer. Buyers are more likely to bid on your dates if your payment methods are clearly stated and easy to use.

6. Customer Service and Nonprofit Promotion:

Bring them back with great communication: Respond to buyer requests or emails quickly. The more customer-friendly your interactions, the more you will be able to convert potential buyers into loyal customers.

Promote the nonprofit or charitable cause that is benefiting from you: Buyers are more willing to purchase and often pay more for dates that benefit a nonprofit or charity. You can enhance buyer trust and loyalty by aligning with a cause, gain increased exposure, and receive a receipt for your tax-deductible donations.
