Under the garb of Service Industry, many Organisations have sprung up, even for a normal job that can be done personally but too lazy to do them.
But this Service in Brazil is different .
A Canadian Company has an Online Service which helps you cheat on your partner.
No doubt it has become a hit with One Million Customers.
US with Eight Million and Canada with Six Million members occupy the pride of place.
The Company is present is 24 countries.
It has a ‘pissed off Consumers site as well’
I wouldn’t be surprised if some one has a Company on ‘How to Murder and escape the Law’!
Better to earn money as a beggar than to earn it this way.
But Brazil has seen the firm’s most explosive growth in terms of number of clients — 70 percent of whom are men — and in money spent to finance the temptations the site offers.
“Brazilians have a very strong propensity for pleasure, sex and fun,” said Eduardo Borges, the company’s representative in this body-conscious country famous for its exuberant samba dancing and carnival.
“Add to this a fascination for technology, for communicating and meeting other people,” he noted.
The country has around 80 million Internet users and is among world leaders in the use of social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
This provides a combination which, according to Borges, does not promote infidelity but offers alternatives to practise it in a “proper manner.” Know-how is precisely the basis for Ashley Madison’s marketing appeal, including references to famous cases of infidelity such as those of former US president Bill Clinton and Prince Charles.
“We started in Brazil in late August 2011. I expected 500,000 subscribers in a year, but we got more than 800,000. And we are going to close 2012 with more than one million, a much bigger growth than what we anticipated,” Borges added.
With 17 million subscribers worldwide, the website will gross $120 million this year, but Borges would not say how much is generated in Brazil.
“Brazil is our second largest market in terms of income,” he said, adding that before the end of the year, the company hopes to open an office in Sao Paulo, the first outside Canada.
“Brazil is the apple of our eye,” he added.
Ashley Madison was created with women in mind. They do not pay to subscribe or make contacts with men, who are the ones who must pay to send emails, chat messages, draw hearts or use other techniques of virtual seduction.
Its business model is based on credits rather than monthly subscriptions.
For a conversation between two members, one of the members must pay five credits to initiate the conversation. Any follow-up messages between the two members are free after the communication has been initiated.
A pack of 100 credits, which allows a man to contact 20 women on average, costs $25.
Bare chest pictures, faces with piercing looks, adjectives such as “sensitive and affectionate, creative and adventurous,” anything goes.
“Send me a picture?” said one subscriber named “Guto” when contacted by AFP. He claimed to have been married for 21 years, said he joined the site in March and bought 4,000 credits.
“I spent more than I wanted, but I got a few contacts. So far I have had two cases of casual sex, pretty good experiences,” he crowed.
To mark its first year in Brazil, Ashley Madison launched “Lover guaranteed”, a program offering the money back guarantee of an affair.
“So far no one has asked for their money back,” said Borges.
David Benoliel, the company’s vice-president for Latin America, said acceptance in the region has been amazing “despite many social and religious taboos”.
Alexa.org shows the site receiving roughly 1,800,000 unique visitors per month.
AshleyMadison is a membership website and service; to initiate contact with other members, one must be a paying member, but non-members can respond to emails from members. The name of the site was created from two popular female baby names “Ashley” and “Madison”.
I am pissed that this site does not screen it members at some point. I actually talked to someone in my Houston area and met them out for dinner and the woman that I have been talking to was actually a man. I was beyond disgusted and embarassed. I paid for my membership because of all the sexy ladies that wanted to meet me. Come to find out they are not who they say they are. I joined to site to have a discreet encounter with a woman and not a man.
Site is not worth the trouble or money.
Ashley Madison is a website that self proclaims that they are interested in facilitatingadultery. They claim to match married people who are interested in having relationships(cheating) with other married people. Recently they have done promotional advertisingmaterial that infers that they individual who signs up is cheating because their wife is “fat” and “scary”. The advertisement also features a photograph of a plus sized woman in skimpy lingerie and subsequently the ad was changed to c…
