Matchmaking is a Growing Industry

"Matchmaking is the type of career that the more you put in the more it gives back"

As much fun as a career in matchmaking can be, it is equally a lot of work. Matchmaking is more than a job; it becomes an identity. You will be looked at as the person with a glamorous and intriguing career. But behind the scenes there are a lot of details that need to be taken care of to run a smooth operation.

Every time you go out, whether it is to a party, a function, or just to the market, you have the opportunity to network and promote your business - and you will have to do just that! Public Relations and Marketing are the best way to create and maintain a healthy growing company so you always have networking on your mind. Whether it is finding the perfect match for your client or finding the perfect client for your database, you take advantage of every moment because it is an opportunity to expand, recruit, publicize, and grow your business.

While you grow your business, you must remain responsive to your clients. Word-of-mouth is a great driver of business, so keeping up-to-date on matching clients is very important. You must keep your clients happy and satisfied to have them remain clients and to help spread the word for you.

Your income is up to you. You can make anywhere from a few thousand dollars with little effort after training, to hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, with a lot of hard work. You are your own boss and you will be as successful as you want to be.
