So we highly recommend to brainstorm this with your business partners.
Two things one should look for when planning
a matrimonial website
a) Target Audience for your matrimonial website
What is the target audience you are going after. Most website owner try to be generic this is the place they fail competing with big companies like shaadi, jeevansathi. You need to understand that you are starting , you have low marketing funds to start with. You need focus a clearly defined audience. This will also help in SEO.
Define your audience, being a matrimonial website you define or target niche like professionals, Geo locations, Language specific, Religion-caste specific.
Example 1 : Targeting unmarried engineers (You can reach : via job sites,alumni directory)
Example 2 : Targeting Unmarried audience in Gujarat (You can reach : via local newspaper, SEO)
Example 3 : Targeting Unmarried Gujarati – Shah (You can reach : via association, social associations, SEO)
Above are just example just be creative while you think about target. Do not limit your self.
b) Unique Selling Proposition (USP) for your marriage bureau
You need to define your USP of the website.It is very critical to define USP or reason you will
sell to audience that your site is nice. One should not try to compete with big players like shaadi or bharat matrimony. Find your USP that is great for the audience.
Example 1 : Biggest matrimonial website for Gujarati-Brahmins or similar.
Again just be creative in exploring the USP, do not limit your self . You need to out of boundaries to choose the best USP.
