Dr. Dato’s Brief:
Catchsocial.com is trying to do what others have been trying to do for years and that is to organize events coupled to the online dating scene. The fact of the matter is that to do BOTH simultaneously takes real hard work and not many have succeeded.
Take for example speed dating where entrepreneurs have tried to tie the online scene to the actual events hosted by them. I had previously reported in my article of one company who did a fairly good job on the brick and mortar of speed dating but failed miserably in their online system.
Marrying the two ie. brick and mortar business with the online business is way too difficult, particularly if you don’t have the resources or capital.
My motto, stick to one or the other, specialize in that niche market and then expand.
