Dating By Blaine Shark Tank Pitch Recap

Blaine Anderson appeared on Shark Tank 15 and started her pitch with an ask of $100,000 in exchange of 2% stake in Dating By Blaine. The Sharks were curious to know more about her business.

Lori: Since, how many years have you been doing this? And, what are your sales?

Founder: I started mid-way through 2020, and my overall sales are about $2.2 million. I did $22,000 in the first six months of my business. In 2021, I made $484,000 in sales, and in 2022, I made $1 million.

Michael then inquired about the exact business model and how much they charge. The founder revealed that their primary course is Dating Masterclass, sold for $1,295.

It is an online pre-recorded course that allows the customer to watch it at his own pace. It includes a small amount of one-on-one interaction.

Kevin: Is it just you doing this, or do you have staff?

Founder: I am the only full-time employee. I have some contractors.

Lori: I am curious why you are not doing this for women.

The founder said, she wasn’t sure if she wanted to work with just men initially, but from a marketing perspective, she had to narrow down the audience.

Kevin: So, what makes you the expert on love?

Founder: I love love. So, first, since I was a kid, I was so interested in relationships. But I didn’t see it as a career option. I was actually working in the travel industry, but when the Pandemic hit, I became unemployed.

Founder: This is when my husband suggested I start a course on this issue. It is infinitely scalable.

Barbara then asked if there were any significant players in this business.

Founder: Yes, there are competitors, and there are other dating coaches, too. But I am the leader in this space.

Michael: My question is, is a dating coach not a scalable business versus if you could turn this into a scalable product?

The founder agreed with this remark. She also said that her courses are incredibly scalable.

Mark: So, break it down for us. What’s scalable and what’s not? One-on-one coaching is definitely not scalable.

Founder: Yes, it’s not scalable. I actually charge $6,295 for six 45 minutes sessions.

Mark: But how much did you sell in total? How many courses did you sell?

The founder said that she’s unsure about the exact number of courses and one-on-one sessions that she has sold.

Mark: That’s a Shark Tank ‘No-No’.

Kevin said that the founder is not sharp on her numbers. He then asked about the margins.

Founder: In 2022, I made around $500,000 in profit. But, there was a very big one-time expense that won’t be re-occurring.

Michael: Why do you need a shark then?

The founder said that she needs a Shark who is looked up to by men. She needs a face that can familiarise her with the notion that taking dating courses is fine and nothing to be ashamed of.

Michael: The problem I have is I think you’re a consultant. I don’t see this as a scalable product. I am out.

Barbara and Lori also left the deal since the founder clearly said that she needed a man in this deal.

Kevin made an offer of $100,000 for a 15% stake.

Mark: Look, I am the luckiest guy in the world. But I was also on the other side of it when I was young and couldn’t talk to girls. So, I see the value in your product. But, you have to tell me a number that makes it worth it for me to invest.

Mark then offered to invest $100,000 for a 10% stake. The founder quickly agreed as she was looking forward to somehow getting Mark on board.
