It’s fair to say we’ve carried out a lot of research on our target market – gay men. We wanted to share all the statistics and data we’ve collated and gathered together in the build up to launching The Omyx Club.
Another year almost over, and what a year 2016 has been. It’s fair to say that this year has seriously trumped anything we’ve seen for decades. Awful and unimaginable terror attacks around the world, some questionable political decisions, shock election results, the death of a considerable number of celebrity greats and the whole ‘Brexit’ thing (I’ll stay neutral here). And, whether you were for or against Trump and/or Brexit, it truly has been an incredible year.
We’re unlike most dating websites and we’re certainly different from social networks like Facebook and Twitter. That’s because we are neither a “social network” nor a “dating website”. We’re a members’ club for gay men, with a wonderful blend of our online platform and fantastic events schedule. I thought I’d take a few moments to explain, in a bit more detail, how the dating and socialising side of The Omyx Club work.
Well, put simply: there are lots of reasons why you might join us. At The Omyx Club I’m particularly proud of just how much we’ve got to offer our members, both in London with our events as well but equally, on a global scale online. I thought I’d take a few minutes to cover off each of our offerings in summary. If you think you’d like to join us then register here – you can either join as a free member or a full club member.
If you’ve recently come out of the closet or broken-up with a long-term partner then the thought of dating can be daunting. But don’t worry; we’re on hand with some advice to get you back into the wonderful and fun world of dating. The first thing to note is – enjoy yourself! Dating shouldn’t be seen as something dull, stressful or uncomfortable. Equally, don’t go into it with an ‘end goal’ in mind. We know, that’s harder than it may seem, we all want to meet Prince Charming and get married. The key though, is to take each day date as it comes. Open mindedness is key.
How do you feel when people ask you what you do for a living? It’s a question that we have to answer a lot when attending networking events.
Do you feel proud when you talk about your job or business? Or do you maybe feel a bit bored by your description of what you do, or even a bit ashamed? Do you rattle down an elevator pitch that you don’t even believe yourself?
Since we launched just three weeks ago today, we’ve been extremely fortunate to have been featured in a number of prominent business and news publications. Is4Profit, Startups, Growth Business, New Business and BDaily have all covered our launch and stories around The Omyx Club. We wanted to share them with you today. Have a look below!
We had an amazing time on November 15th, at our first Omyx Club social event. With almost 150 attendees joining us at Beaufort House it was a really special occasion and the start of something big! We are here for gay men who are looking for a more engaging, friendly and sociable alternative to the limited number of gay bars and existing apps out there. We are there, both online and offline, to help connect people in a more authentic and contemporary way than ever before. We know that the way everyone connects has changed drastically since the advent of the internet and more recently the rise of smartphones. But that’s where there’s a big void for gay men who want something more. Whether that’s socialising, dating or business networking – we offer that space.
At The Omyx Club we have a number of services to help our professional members. These include networking drinks, business talks, online business networking and even a jobs board! If you’re recruiting you’ll know what a struggle it can be to get the right candidates applying for your role. Well, here are our five tips and tricks to help promote your jobs further…
I can remember coming out at the age of 16, I know I had it easy. There were laws on equality in place, the law on civil partnerships had been passed and in the media there were increasing numbers of LGBT role-models. It’s still terrifying though! Since then I’ve met people in a whole host of situations. Gay men who were married with children and decided they could no longer live in that way, older single gay men who hadn’t come out to friends and were living a double life, younger gay men who felt unable to sustain a relationship through fear that their parents may find out, the list goes on…
