Free phone personals.

It looks like the phone personals industry is going to take a major hit this year.   Currently sites like lavalife and others make hundreds of millions of dollars a year on phone chat lines where men call in and spend a couple of dollars a minute to talk to women.

 I think that VOIP chat rooms monitized via google adsense for audio  is going to reduce this industry to a fraction of its current size.    I wonder how quickly this will be deployed by other sites?

    Premium numbers will always be there….

    If Lavalife mgmnt. is smart, and it seems they are smart they will thrive for long long time, and with VOIP technology they will make even more profits.

    Be sure phone wont go away, any kind of phone … (^_^)

    What would you do Markus if you had 50MM in profits every year? Would you stagnate or go further? Lavalife guys are born in the 80’s and still thriving today, and most people they are making a buck on are over 50. To whom would you sell rather more: to a teenage(18-19yrs.) kid that is just entering workforce market (if that) or to an old geezer who doesn’t want to fuss around microphones, VOIP settings,…. true old geezers are changing, now even 60 year olds who never touched a PC before play Warcraft (LOL)

    The market is fractioned and not everything is centered arround PC, phones(mobile and fix) still rock, and will rock even more in time to come!

    Markus, you should plunge into industry to know what you are talking about, i will surely plunge in when i start making serious money from ads, and believe me i wont cut throats neither to lavalife, or anyone else because it doesn’t fit me to cut prices down, when you profit from that kind of market you ALWAYS put the high price tag, and the smaller expenses are the better is for us! No one will work for pennies, neither will fantasy phone operators, neither will models, neither will i as owner….
    Be sure that when someone starts to cut throats to big guys they will react with any disposable force to clear the competition. This guys aren’t big co’s run by good guys (like newspaper management is regards to Google, online gaming schmucks in US), they are on the cutting line between black and white world where you guard your profits with any kind of force (from lobying to hacking, buyouts to …. )

    That’s hilarious! First, to think that phone dating is a multi-million dollar industry. And second, the fact that this post came from the designer of a FREE online singles/dating site. Dude, you’re rockin. And somehow, you aren’t poor. Way to be.

    Yahoo messenger chat rooms are bot ridden. Waste of time on all sites. You pay you might get a shot at what works in person. You have to do alot of things just to get anywhere and everyone plays the game(s). Just think good thoughts, pray for people with truth, realize your along for the ride and not in control unless others want you to be. Amazing how bad stuff is hard to rid yourself of and good stuff is elusive to many.

    I could really use some help applying for jobs. I was laid off from my jobs 4 months ago working at General Electric for 24 years. I was deeply depressed at first and still am. I just want to have a stable source of income but it seems like in the year 2009 it doesn’t look like thats going to happen. I am thinking of going into sales, cold calling used to be my gig before I did manual labor for GE. Anyone know what this company in Kansas City is like they are called Gragg Advertising

    I used to really enjoy phone personals from lavalife and others. It was fun but kind of expensive. I think at the time I am writing this most are out of the phone business.

    I agree, I think that the major sites will take a hit as online alternatives continue to be developed. It will be interesting to see the effect of skype type services have on the industry.

  17. Phone Fun Says:

    Any time a major play like google or skype jumps into the fray it has to give you pause. The have just too much financial backing!

Internet marketing unclear in the event that it’s talked about, still when utilizing Chrome I will by no means get the general web page to make sure you weight without the need of relaxing sometimes. Could just be my personal personal pc. Bless you.
