A Picture is worth a thousand words...
Audio and Video Speak Volumes
Most the Online Dating and Personals industry sites provide a space for their members to post a photo and write a little narrative about their likes and dislikes. It is a fact that single ads with a picture command a 70 percent response over singles who don't post a photograph. A relatively new feature is to allow single daters to upload an audio clip along with their photo. This gives other members the added ability to hear what the person behind the photo and written profile sounds like.
Dress up your profile with good photos of yourself. If your dating service offers audio clips take advantage of it. The audio clip is a definite boost to your personals ad. In new studies within dating sites it has been shown that profiles with an audio clip and photo have a 50 percent higher view rate than those with only a photo.
Other features like the ability to upload a video dating clip are beginning to become more widely available. Being able to see and hear a clip about the person gives a member a good impression of what kind of person the profile owner is. Being able to see that person's mannerisms, and observe their body language is a nice feature especially online.
The higher caliber online dating sites offer these features along with the ability to restrict access to the video and audio clips on a member by member basis through a favorites list or some manner similar to that. That way certain members can be denied access to those most private recordings.
The more established dating sites offer all these features plus some. With broadband internet becoming more available many dating site operators now offer live video and audio chats. These audio and video chats are usually one-to-one and very private. They provide the safest face to face meetings. As the connection speeds increase the video and audio gets remarkably better. Some applications produce crystal clear audio and near real time video making the experience really beneficial. If you are looking for a dating site make sure that you find the one with the best features for the price. The best features will ensure your best online dating experience.
