Additionally, you'll want to choose a name that has an available domain address to compliment or match.
(Example: Match in Six = DBA | Domain address = 2. Just a word of personal advice from experience, I have noticed that age groups that range from 35 and up are more likely to fill up faster than those events for people who are single and under the age of 35.
You'll first want to come up with a name that you will operate under (a "DBA" name, so to speak).
I suggest coming up with a name that is unique, yet simple and to the point of your business.
Publish the event in your organization's newsletter.
This should ideally occur between one month and two weeks before the event, allowing your readers long enough to plan for it but not long enough to forget about it. Announcing the event electronically is (generally speaking) free and very efficient, making a large group of people aware of it at a keystroke.
Make sure that all your advertising materials explicitly state that this is a speed dating event, when and where it is to take place, and what the crowd will be like (Jewish singles, senior citizens).
Post your fliers, or, if you can spare the manpower, hand them out yourselves. These can alert everyone on your friends' list at just a glance that you have an upcoming event.
It gives you the chance to meet up to 20 members of the opposite sex (sometimes more sometimes less) in just one evening and each one in a ‘mini date’ setting – tables of 2 are set up around the room and the men move round and spend about 5 minutes with each lady We ensure that people are courteous and polite to each other at all times, that you don’t get pestered for your phone number, that there is no rejection for anyone and that no one knows anyone else’s results You will be issued with your own ‘Match Sheet’ and quite simply you tick on your sheet the people that you like and would like to see again You can choose ‘date’ or ‘friend’ categories – depending on how you feel and whether there is an instant attraction for you or you feel that your feelings could grow.
There are breaks during the evening for you to mingle with your new found friends of both sexes, as yes it’s a great way of making new friends of both sexes too.
At the event, make sure all of you guest have a name badge (Alias's are ok and suggested) and assign them a unique number for easier match results.
Have them complete a registration form with contact information, email address, their real name, and Alias (if using one) for matching purposes. During the event, every 6-8 minutes you ring the bell and the daters switch dates.
Speed dating is an increasingly popular option for today's singles.
