When the founder of monster.com decided to launch a brand new website for the 50 plus last summer, the idea was of challenging boomers to live the biggest life possible.
Some thought it wouldn’t sell.
EONS Founder and CEO, Jeff Taylor says, “I think the big surprise was that we actually have advertisers.”
Harrah’s Hyatt, Liberty Mutual, Verizon, and Fidelity, are just some of the advertisers banking on boomers online.
So it should come as no surprise that a brand new site is now taking on eons.
â€œOne of the things that’s really unique about our site is that we’re completely centered around our members in terms of promoting the volunteer aspects, members are contributors,” claims 55 Alive CEO, Jeff Lantz.
Always look at the other end of the spectrum/demographics. That means in the next 30 or 40 years from now, Eons will be hauling all that millions and millions of MySpace users. *heh*
At least, this crowd will have the purchasing power and a credit card to boot. An interesting space to venture and hopefully it won’t end up just like any other dating site for the aged.
