The history or Timeline of Fusion101 service for single Christian is as follows.
Fusion101 think it important that all who work and use Fusion 101 know a bit about how and why this site started: Fusion101 – Original Vision – mid 1999 This was to help church singles as I felt the secular scene always got a better deal – not just in respect to meeting people.
Site Features This is the only down side of the service if you can have such a thing for such a great free service.
Whilst it’s completely free Christian dating site – and one of a kind in it’s league, the site features are basic.
Fusion101 Teamed with The uk – sept 99 A new Christian portal called heard about the singles service I’d designed and offered to take my front end and build the database and market it for over 50% ownership.
At the time I had little choice but to go with them.
Only a very small number of spammers and fake profiles appear to be on this website as every profile is vetted and monitored according to the web site.
I had quite a few disagreements saying their marketing wouldn’t work – even for their own site and sure enough it didn’t.The Way shortly after was wound up (although the site is still online and now a Charity).I then bought their part of the company back for 5K. Fusion – re-marketed – 2000 Once I got the site back I kept Fusion free and began to do my own online marketing using somewhat hit and miss tactics but learning a lot about search engines along the way and actually getting good rankings for fusion.Running Fusion 101 is however beginning to take its toll as I have been doing a full time day job and working on fusion often till 2am for the previous 3 years which meant I was often knackered during the day.
I managed to keep it all going but later on ended up in hospital! Fusion101 – 2002 By now Fusion101 had become so busy (about 300 people joining a week and 1000 logins per day) that the whole thing began to slow up.
Searches on the database could take 15 seconds or more to execute and in many cases locking up completely. The host company wanted 3K to keep fusion going – It turns out they were fleecing me – charging 5-6 times over the amount I needed to pay!
