Get Jazzed - What's in it for you...

Yesterday I blogged about a new online dating site, Jazzed, that's free for 90 days. One of my friends (who works in product marketing) said he was pretty turned off by the post because I was asking people to sign up so that I could win an iPad. He said it was very poor marketing. I should be telling everyone what was in it for them rather than asking them to sign up so that I could win an iPad!

So here goes... This is what's in it for you:

Even though the Jazzed site is new, it seems to be growing like gangbusters, thanks to this promotion. The interface is very easy to use and has a great look and feel to it.

Online dating is a great way to meet people. Even though I can be a little cynical about it, I have to say, I have met a lot of wonderful people thanks to online dating. There are tons of articles and books out there to help the new online dater. In 8 Tips for Great Dating for Single Men and Women, author Dr. Diana Kirschner says you have to start by making finding love a priority. Looks like she wrote a book, Love in 90 Days: The Essential Guide to Finding Your Own True Love. I will have to check this out! There are checklists and homework! (I love that kind of thing! Just give me a plan...)

In How to Find Love Relationships Online – Internet Dating, you'll find 9 more tips, specifically for online daters.

There is so much available for singles and online daters, I think if I were married I'd be feeling a little left out!

Now about that iPad. It's true that my main motivation for spreading the word about Jazzed is that for everyone that signs up with my invite, I get an entry into a weekly drawing for an iPad. But that will be true for you, too! And, I happen to disagree with my friend who said people wouldn't sign up because I was doing this so I could win an iPad. In fact, I know a couple of people who probably only did it for that reason. They wanted to help me out. As Gretchen Rubin, author of the Happiness Project writes in To Make a Friend, Ask Someone For a Favor

Studies show that for happiness, providing support is just as important as getting support. By offering people a way to provide support, you generate good feelings in them.
So, to summarize, by signing up for Jazzed you will:

  • Help populate a cool, new online dating site, free of charge for 90 days
  • Will have a chance to win an iPad
  • Will be doing me a favor by helping improve my chances of winning an iPad
  • May find the love of your life!
What do you have to lose? Let's get Jazzed!
