POMPANO BEACH, Fla., Oct. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ludwig Enterprises, Inc. (LUDG.OTC) Board of Directors announces a Joint Venture Agreement with Worthington Financial Services, Inc. owner and operator of www.MakeMeACouple.com. Online dating is a fast growing dynamic industry. Almost 20% of all new relationships are started online. During the past year 17% of all marriages were started online. Reuters calculated the annual revenue from dating web sites to be in excess of One Billion Dollars.
Both Ludwig and Makemeacouple.com target the 38 million foreign-born residents of the US. This community unlike many previous immigrant groups trends towards a preservation of their cultural and linguistic heritage. The Joint Venture between Ludwig and Makemeacouple.com is intended to assist this niche group in meeting, dating and become a family unit all the while maintaining their connection with their parents, family and friends in their motherland via daily radio programs provided by Ludwig.
Makemeacouple.com should be successful because it has found an unsatisfied market need. The site is a place for persons of like cultural characteristics to meet as well as a place where a person of one ethnic background can find someone from another culture. As an example a lady of Columbian heritage could be sought after both by person from Columbia but also by men from other countries. The same logic applies to persons of religious faiths. A person of one faith may find someone of the same faith from his or her county of birth or a different country possibly even a slightly different cultural heritage.
There are 54 million single people in the United States. The average dating site user pays over $200 a year in fees. A site like E-harmony is estimated to have over 20 million users, Match.com is estimated to have over 15 million users. (These sites are not affiliated with Ludwig or makemeacouple.com)
To be successful, this joint venture between Ludwig and Makemeacouple.com does not need to be the biggest web site, but to provide a specialized product to an un-served market.
During the introductory period the site has been accepting members without charge. Current membership consists of residents of both the U.S. and foreign countries.
