eHarmony Has The Love Potion

It’s official: Cupid has competition. It’s not the cute little Valentine’s Day bears or bunnies from Hallmark; it’s a social tech behemoth named eHarmony. Cupid misses his mark sometimes, and we all know it — but E-Harmony has a love potion that is locking lovers in love for life.

600,000 marriages in six years is quite a feat for an online dating service that’s developed an algorithm to determine if potential lovers are a perfect match. I know that when I first heard about it, I thought, “OK, you sign up to get an account, you place in your interests, and presto. Perfect cutie with a big booty.” That was my interpretation, at least. Something has to be in the love-sauce, because they only have a six percent divorce rate. So if you’re single and trying to do it on your own without a little coaching, your return on date investments may be very low. One out of seven Americans have subscribed to the service at one time or another.

Currently, eHarmony is in the midst of retooling their services. They are getting in the mobile arena, building apps, and contemporizing their website for the next generation on the lookout for love. Celebrating its 15th birthday in 2015, eHarmony will soon be a brand that has its name carved into a tech tree with a note that reads, “Love lasts longer online.”

Now that’s a case study for love, harmony, profits, and return on consumer investment.
