David Evans is an independent consultant focused on advising social networks and associated markets on growth strategies, social media and product development initiatives.

As editor of Online Dating Post.com, David has covered the online dating industry since 2002.

While more people than ever are trying online dating, the core issues ​surrounding the industry remain​ — which David suggests include less-than-successful matching systems and the stigma of finding your significant other online.

“We don’t date online,” states one of his posts for Online Dating Insider.

He has since capitalized on his opinions by bringing his consulting, analysis, and advisory business under one brand — Digicraft.

Over the years, he has helped dozens of dating companies, from startups to established businesses, all while shedding light on the space in his blog posts.

David Evans, in his decidedly self-assured and matter-of-fact tone, has a way of cutting through all the marketing language and industry jargon of online dating to offer honest feedback to his clients and readership.

His consulting and advising for sites from Ok Cupid to Plenty of Fish and dozens more has basically earned him an honorary degree in the world of online dating, and his expertise has been quoted in publications like The New York Times and Inc Magazine.

In 2002, David started Online Dating Insider as a way to blog personally about his use of Match as a single guy and also to share general online dating industry insights.
