Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. - Mar 08, 2017 - With the aim of helping baby boomers improve their ability to find dates online, new author, J. C. Elliot, announces his first book, 50+ Dating Profile Tips for People 50+: How to Write an Awesome Dating Profile that Attracts People You Want to Meet. The book will be available on Amazon.com at a promotional price of $.99, and fulfills a need for useful advice targeted at older online daters who face different life challenges than younger people.
Elliot, a retired marketing consultant and online dater for more than two years, wrote this book because he realized many people over 50 that start dating online underestimate the importance of their profiles, and needed help writing them.
“Finding people you want to date and want to date you is a marketing challenge,” said Elliot. “Your profile is like a big advertisement that says ‘here I am; date me.’ Like any advertisement, the messaging is important. That’s where this book can help. Considering that the average online dater spends $243 a year to use an online dating service, not having a good profile can make it a waste of money.”
50+ Dating Profile Tips for People 50+ steps readers through the process of writing a profile from evaluating what they are looking for to communicating it effectively. The book also provides advice about the importance of photos and how to take them, as well as how to write what Elliot calls the “About Me Essay,” and how to edit it.
Finally, the Appendices include three worksheets and an editing checklist with links to PDF versions that can be printed out for ease-of-use. The worksheets simplify the preparation of the profile.
“What typically happens,” continued Elliot, “is that people launch into writing profiles unprepared. They don’t know what to expect or how much or what kind of information they’re asked to share. Using the worksheets not only takes away much of the anxiety, but in the end, it results in a better profile.”
In addition, the appendices include a list of online dating sites for people 50+, and a list of dating advice sites with links.
The senior market (55 and older) is the fastest growing segment of the online dating scene, growing at 16+% a year according to several sources. According to Pew Research, 22% of online daters ask for help with their profiles.
50+ Dating Profile Tips for People 50+ will be released on March 6, for Amazon Kindle the initial price is $.99. It’s now available for pre-release orders.
