Cupid’s arrow is about to pierce the calendar, and it’s time to aim your marketing guns at the lucrative target of Valentine’s Day. Let’s face it, love is big business, and as partners, we’re perfectly positioned to cash in on the seasonal surge. But how do we craft campaigns that convert hearts (and clicks) into new users for your unique dating brand? Worry not, this blog is your roadmap to Valentine’s Day domination!

  1. Know Your Niche, Know Your Cupid:

Forget generic dating app ads. Google Trends screams for niche targeting! Whether it’s singles over 50 seeking second chances, gamers looking for pixelated soulmates, or poly couples looking for a third, cater your message to a passionate audience. Tailor your landing pages, visuals, and copywriting to resonate with their desires. 

  • Laser-Focus on Niches: Use Google Trends data to identify trending dating niches and tailor your campaigns with specific keywords and demographics. Examples: “valentines singles dating,” “over 60 dating apps,” and “gamer couples looking for matches this valentines.”
  • Custom Audiences: If you have existing user data, create custom audiences in Google Ads to target similar users or retarget those who haven’t completed the signup process.
  • In-Market Audiences: Leverage Google’s “In-Market” audiences for people actively researching dating apps for valentines or related topics, like “singles looking for serious relationships.” 
  • Similar Audiences: Expand your reach by targeting audiences similar to your existing users or high-performing customer segments.
  1. Be Bold, Be Creative, Be Cupid:

Think beyond tired hearts and red roses. Let’s spice it up! Use humour, witty headlines, and puns to grab attention. Examples: “Swiping Left on Awkward Dates? Find Your Perfect Match This Valentine’s Day,””Ditch the Netflix, Find Your Real Life Rom-Com on [Your Dating Brand].”

  • Highlight Unique Features: Showcase what sets your dating brand apart. Examples: “Find Love Through Your Shared Passion for [Niche],” “Personalised Matches Powered by AI,” and “Connect with Verified Users for Safer Dating.”
  • Play with Urgency and Scarcity: Offer limited-time discounts or early access to features for Valentine’s Day. Create a sense of FOMO (fear of missing out) it’s an emotive trigger that encourages immediate action.
  • Visuals Matter: Use eye-catching visuals that resonate with your target audience. Show happy couples, diverse user profiles, or playful illustrations.
  • Pro tip: Use’s AI tools like ChatGPT to craft witty, personalised ad copy for each niche.
  1. Go Social, Spread the Love:

The social media battlefield is where hearts are won and clicks are captured. Run targeted Facebook ads with irresistible offers or host interactive quizzes on Instagram stories (“Find Your Valentine Through Astrology!”). Partner with relevant influencers for authentic endorsements and leverage user-generated content to keep the love train chugging.

  1. Display Ads: Show, Don’t Tell:

Visuals speak volumes, especially in those tiny ad spaces. Craft eye-catching banners showcasing the unique features of your dating brand. Show real couples who found love on your platform, or use humour to grab attention (“Tired of Awkward Dates? Find Your Perfect Match, Not Another Mismatch!”). Remember, A/B tests different visuals and headlines to see what your audience loves.

  • Image: A couple laughing on a date with the headline: “Find Your Perfect Match This Valentine’s Day with [Your Dating Brand].”
  • Headline: “Tired of Bad Dates? Swipe Right on True Love with [Your Dating Brand].”
  • Video: A short video ad showcasing the features and success stories of your dating platform. With YouTube Creator, you can smash out videos for Pmax in under 5 minutes.
