Plans for 5 years are to cover the maximum number of users, to attract them to our social network. Start a massive advertising campaign of our dating network, start earning a steady income.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?
In our project, we faced several global problems. First, our development team had to find many unique software and hardware solutions for our functionality.
The second hard problem is competing with the “monsters” of it dating business: badoo, tinder, mamba, etc. Large advertising budgets required!
Our team is most frustrated by the biased negative attitude towards our project from US app stores. Our team has nothing to do with the war in Ukraine, and we are for peace!
We are a Russian development team, our project was created and based in Russia. And because of this, Google and Apple corporations oppress us in their stores.
For example, Google, which owns the largest app store Play Market, has limited all payments (internal purchases) with Russian debit cards. We have lost part of our income.
Google is systematically blocking our apps for made-up reasons for not following content rules, specifications, etc. There have been instances of our account being blocked for a store with money in our account.
All the money stored on our account when the account is blocked, Google keeps to itself. These are the terms of the user agreement for Google developers. In our understanding, these actions are called robbery! But complaining to no one is useless. Corporations don’t care about small business!
How do people get involved/buy into your vision?
Despite all the difficulties in the development of our project, people like our project. Even in the absence of advertising campaigns, we have already attracted more than a million users to our social network. We work hard for customers!
We want to find new partners – sponsors for our project. Start a full-scale advertising campaign to attract many users. Investors welcome to our project!! Write us private messages to email [email protected], we are ready to provide a monetization plan, discuss your conditions!
