"Half Our Deen is 100% Ad Free!"
There are no ads anywhere on HalfOurDeen.com. Even many of the so called free sites
are not free at all. Often times the only thing that is free is registration but
once you actually want to contact someone, they ask you to cough up $25 a month.
Other sites will go beyond that and advertise you to death. At the end, each site
will find one way or another to make their money back. One valuable lesson that
many have learned is that things that claim to be free on the Internet are often
not. Quality sites need resources to run successfully. Half Our Deen charges are
modest $5/month, which helps employ a staff programmers (to build new features),
customers service staff (to support its current members), and a marketing team (to
bring new member to Half Our Deen).
"Half Our Deen is completely Private"
A recent poll on HalfOurDeen.com shows that the #1 reason people chose Half Our
Deen over the other sites is Privacy. Because not everyone wants their picture and
profile to show up on google search :)
"New members signing up everyday since it's launch"
Ever since the launch of Half Our Deen, we have had a consistent flow of new people
join. Our goal was to get 1000 active members in a year but we pass the goal in
less than 3 months after launch.
"Half Our Deen does not depend on a volunteer staff but rather pays all it's employees"
Altough our low membership prices gives us a smaller revenue flow than the competition,
we value the time of those who have helped us. Instead of relying on volunteers,
we pay all those who put in the effort to make Half Our Deen amazing.
"Majority of HalfOurDeen.com members are exclusively on HalfOuDeen.com"
It is not surprise that the majority of Half Our Deen members have profiles only
on Half Our Deen. There is no other site that offers 100% Privacy, compatibility
matching, and many cool features for just $5/month.
"The majority of HalfOurDeen resources are focused on improving the quality of the
site and member experience"
We much rather have 1000 members using a quality site than 100,000 members using
a junky site. We believe in quality over quantity so instead of spending all our
revenue on ads, we spend a lot of it on hiring programmers to build new features
that will help our members find their other half.
