I spent a decade helping 100+ dating sites launch. Now I'm getting out of that game and moving more towards general startup advisory services. See OnlineDatingPost.com and Digicraft.com for more about me and how I might be able to help.
I have worked with everyone from scrappy under-funded social/dating startups around the world to Match.com. I'm happy to give you a decade's worth of perspective and experience on an hour call. Only 1-hour calls please.
Very knowledgeable and focused us on issues to which we had not given proper attention. A pleasure to work with, cannot recommend enough.
David has huge breadth of knowledge, it can be overwhelming in a good way, and it is NECESSARY if you want to launch something in the dating space, which is extremely competitive. I didn't regret one second of the call. Thanks
David was super helpful and clearly a strong player in the online dating niche. I would highly recommend David if you have questions.
David gave me great insights and he pointed out thoughts very logically. A great advisor and very person to talk to.
Had a fantastic conversation with David - incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and insightful - looking forward to further chats and using his experience as a sounding board/advisor
David Evans is an expert in the realm of Online Dating and Social Networking when it comes to marketing and technology. He is the first person I consult then I want to know the latest greatest and the opinion I value most when I'm doing research for a client. He's reliable, smart, grounded, and can be counted on to over deliver. He got his hand on the pulse of the industry and few can claim his knowledge, intuition and contacts. Additionally, he's an amazing guy with a great sense of humor which makes working with him a delight.
I have worked with David on various projects for many years. He is a professional with the highest integrity, with particular skill at leading and managing technical groups, maintaining focus and productivity of even the most mercurial technical types. He knows how to bridge the gap between marketing, technical and creative departments in a way that never fails to surprise and impress me.
David is a bundle of energy and approaches ideas with an amazingly creative mind and technological acumen. It has been a pleasure working with him to define his product strategy and marketing messages. He believes in his service as much as he believes in satisfying customers, which attests to the continued success of his company.
It's not often that you can call a competitor a friend, but that's exactly the way I met Dave. We had started competing profile writing services in 2003 when we began comparing notes about the online dating landscape. I eagerly watched as he turned himself into THE authority on the dating/social networking biz, and I continue to read his blog and seek his wisdom to this day. If you're looking for a man who can back up his opinions with fact, and tell you about technologies you've never even heard of, well, this is your lucky day...
David publishes *the* blog of the online dating industry ("Online Dating Insider", http://dating.corante.com/). His writing has helped me tremendously during the planning and launch of my new company, IncrediblInc!.
