CREATIVE LOAFING - Oct 8 - Laurie Davis, founder and CEO of eFlirt Expert VIP, was an early adopter of online dating; she wrote her first profile ten years ago when she was 18. When Davis realized just how many of her friends she had helped meet partners online, eFlirt Expert was born.
Q: What exactly is eFlirt Expert VIP?
A: eFlirt Expert VIP is for people who don’t have the time to be proactive about their dating life. We manage your dating accounts, schedule dates, make reservations, recommend date spots. We even do offline services like help you with your wardrobe.
Q: How is this different than your first company, eFlirt Expert?
A: eFlirt Expert helped singles date online and transition offline. The demand for the VIP care came before the brand. I had some executives come to me not just wanting me to help with their profiles, they wanted me to help with the whole online dating process.
Q: What’s the demographic of your client base?
A: Clients are 60% male, 40% female. The youngest is 28 and the oldest is 69.
Q: What is one tip you can give us for making your online profile more enticing?
A: Be specific. Don’t list a bunch of adjectives that describe you, like you’re funny, adventurous, cute… What works better is if you were to tell a story, like how are you adventurous.
