Why should I use Planet Love Match to contact Russian and Ukrainian women? This is a question many men who have encountered the new Planet Love Match platform have been asking.
How does Planet Love match protect men from scamming and dishonest local agencies in Ukraine and elsewhere? Some ask.
The Russian, and more especially the Ukrainian dating industry has been plagued with allegations of “women paid to chat” on over-priced platforms. Lack of availability of direct contact information is another problem with the old dinosaur Russian and Ukrainian dating sites.
With the PLM model, agencies are not paid directly for profiles by larger aggregator agencies. With the PLM model, agencies are affiliates; women are under them. You are in direct contact with women and they are free to give you their contact info as they see fit. There is no level of spend to get to that I am aware of. PLM is one-to-one communication without any intermediaries – as Skype would be; but with more facilities and validation both ends. The agency earns by the activity on the site of the women beneath them only.
It seems far more transparent to me. It removes the much of the possibility of corruption in the first place.
The problem the industry has is trying to monetize it for the small local agencies whilst incentivizing them to be honest. Incentivizing people in a poor and corrupt country like Ukraine to be honest is no small task. Everyone was tired of the old business models operated by some of the dinosaur big fish in the industry. It put too many levels of potential corruption between the two main parties. man > big agency > local agency > local agency translator > girl. There are two links in that chain that traditionally are the root of the corruption and dishonesty in the industry: local agency and local agency translator.
Now, Yuri from ABC agency in Dumpsk recruits himself a hundred women. It is easy for him to obfuscate at best; and create fake correspondence if he so chooses at worst. The bad reputation passes to the big aggregator agency and not Yuri because this [the big site] is the site the man paid originally. One bad apple in the barrel and all that…..
The PLM model seeks to remove Yuri and his translators from the chain, whilst still allowing Yuri his profit margin for feeding genuine and available women into the system. This means Yuri has to actually do some work and recruit real women actively rather than sit on his arse and try to fake a few letters using decade old photos of long-since-married women as some did before.
Yuri’s profit comes from a percentage of the activity of the ladies beneath him. If they are inactive; he doesn’t earn. If he has fake profiles; it wont work – he doesn’t earn. His bent translators are effectively out of a job. If a woman doesn’t cough up contact information in a reasonable timeframe, men will write others instead. Thus her activity decreases and Yuri loses out.
What PLM have done is change the flow of the money and removed the possibility for local agencies to be dishonest. You know she is real because you can webcam her. No webcam? Safecall her. No safecall or webcam? No woman on the other end. After a short communication, having validated each other, one would expect direct contact info forthcoming. PLM hope you find their platform useful and cheap enough that you will choose to continue using it because it is cheap and convenient. If you want to wing it alone at that point; that is your choice.
