The Short Version: Online dating professionals Gilly and Alex have mastered the art of creating an attractive, authentic, and unique dating profile, and now they’re passing on those secrets through Profile Pimpers. This concierge service includes editing, writing, and proofreading dating profiles as well as coaching singles through every step of the online dating process. With hands-on email consultations, Profile Pimpers can inspire clients to go beyond stagnant phrases, bathroom selfies, and copy/pasted messages so they can reach their true dating potential.
A married couple co-founded Profile Pimpers in 2016 because they saw many of their friends struggling to attract dates and build relationships in the modern swiping scene, and they wanted to pass on strategies that worked.
Gilly and Alex actually met each other the old-fashioned way by striking up a conversation in person, but they’re no strangers to the online dating world. They have both done their fair share of swiping on Tinder and often wondered why some people seem to put so little effort or thought into their pictures and bios.
Once the couple began comparing notes about their Tinder experiences, they realized how widespread the issue was and decided to do something to help point single people in a more positive direction. Today, Profile Pimpers is available as a resource and guide to anyone hoping to build genuine relationships online.
Profile Pimpers has seen clients ranging in age from 19 to 70, and they all face similar challenges and frustrations with online dating. It can be difficult to stand out in a highly competitive dating environment, and it can be intimidating to send a message to an attractive stranger. But a little knowledge and polish can go a long way to help ease the emotional strain.
Gilly and Alex want their clients to grow into more confident online daters, so they provide hands-on coaching on everything from setting up a dating profile to asking an online crush out. Gilly is a certified life coach with a background in counseling, so she can dig into the issues, habits, and beliefs holding someone back while crafting an empowering and authentic dating profile that highlights a person’s best traits.
“We see people all over the world,” Gilly said. “Our demographic is pretty much everyone and anyone. Sometimes our clients have been online a long time and haven’t gotten the results they want, and other times our clients have never tried online dating before and need some help getting started.”
Profile Pimpers is not a large, automated dating company with cookie-cutter profiles and generic advice. Gilly and Alex handle most requests personally, and they only have a small team of freelance writers on staff to fill in the gaps when needed.
Gilly said she is rather selective when hiring new writers because she wants to find a kindred spirit who understands the company’s mission and can bring the right voice to each assignment. Every word on a dating profile matters and could be the difference between a match and a pass, so it’s important to the Profile Pimpers team to give each profile the consideration it deserves.
Even as the company grows more popular, Gilly and Alex said it’s important to them to maintain the hands-on and personalized services that have proven useful to clients. “We never want to lose that boutique feel because we know that’s where our success comes from,” Alex said.
Profile Pimpers is a boutique company that takes the time to get to know who clients are so the writers can create a customized dating profile that stands out.
Profile Pimpers has several tiers of dating profile services. The basic Pimp My Profile package includes a profile review and photo selection. The Plus package includes profile writing and message writing. Finally, the Dating Concierge and VIP packages pull out all the stops to give a dating profile some TLC and provide in-depth consultations to get a single person on the road to success.
Gilly and Alex have come up with a personalized consultation process to help singles build confidence, figure out what they want, and make the best possible start online. With its onboarding questionnaire, Profile Pimpers inspires clients to be more intentional and thoughtful about online dating, and that naturally leads to a more fruitful and enjoyable dating experience.
“The questionnaire we’ve developed is a key that unlocks who this person is, why they are the way they are, and how they relate to the world,” Gilly said. “I always want to dig deeper because I want the profile to feel authentic to them. It’s really about capturing their own unique personality in the profile.”
The Profile Pimpers approach begins with an email interview — Gilly handles all client communication — and a detailed questionnaire about a person’s relationship goals, dating habits, lifestyle choices, and other opinions and preferences. Gilly is serious about collecting as much background information as possible, even combing through social media accounts with a client’s permission, because all that research will tie into how she writes the dating profile.
As part of the VIP package, Gilly can also use her experience as a life coach to identify underlying issues and recommend strategies for overcoming obstacles in the dating scene.
“I just dig and dig until I really understand what’s going on with someone,” Gilly explained. “I enjoy getting to know these clients and reflecting who they are in their profile.”
Gilly’s personalized email coaching can help singles gain clarity on what they want, and that empowers them to start taking meaningful steps toward achieving their relationship goals. Gilly can provide useful insights, support, and guidance on every aspect of online dating, so singles always have someone to reach out to via text or email if they don’t know what to say in an online chat or feel nervous before a first date.
“Our VIP service doesn’t end once we write the profile,” Gilly told us. “We’re there for our clients every step of the way. If they’re having issues getting messages or matches, we can help them out with that as well.”
The Plus and VIP services both include three unique first messages written by the dating professionals. All a client has to do is send over the dating profile they’re interested in, and Gilly will recommend some killer opening lines. She comes up with specific intros, not pickup lines, to give singles an idea of what type of message works.
“We make it personal because online dating is such a personal process, and it’s so disheartening when you’re not getting those matches and messages you’re looking for,” Gilly said. “We want to be there to help hold their hands through the process and build their confidence by showing them what works.”
The Profile Pimpers team invests a lot of time and energy in helping each client come into their own in the online dating scene, and the work has paid off time and time again. Many singles have written positive reviews about the profile editing and coaching services.
“I had a personal consultation with Gilly. I was so nervous at first but she made me feel so at ease and gave me some amazing dating advice,” Raymond M. said in a testimonial. “I immediately noticed an improvement in my online dating success and started going on dates.”
One online dater only talked to Gilly and Alex for an hour-long consultation but was blown away by the dating profile he received. “The profile is absolutely perfect,” the client said. “I am updating my profile with it tonight! Easily the best online dating profile writing service I’ve found.”
Clients often provide real-time feedback about their dating experience, so Gilly and Alex can witness their strategies and services paying off. “It seems you know what you’re doing,” a client said in an email exchange. “I am messaging with a beautiful woman…and it’s barely lunchtime.”
Gilly said it’s rewarding to see a former client land great dates or get in serious relationships by using the Profile Pimpers’ tips, strategies, and profiles. Whether someone writes to say they’re engaged or they’re just feeling more confident and hopeful, every success story means a lot to the Profile Pimpers team.
“I love cheering people on and being in their corner,” Gilly said. “My favorite part is seeing people get a boost of confidence because their dating profile is leading to more matches and messages.”
The Profile Pimpers agency has staked out a middle ground between expensive dating coaching and one-size-fits-all profile editing services. Gilly and Alex have put a lot of thought into what elements make a dating profile successful, and they can offer practical support and in-depth consultations for singles wondering what they’re doing wrong or how they can improve.
People of all genders can rely on the Profile Pimpers team to put together a dynamic and authentic dating profile that promises to attract attention on any dating app or site.
“We got into this business to help people,” Gilly told us. “I was online and thought why does everyone have a shirtless tiger photo? Why are there still so many Tinder disasters? We’re helping people find a better way forward, and it’s a great feeling to see them get tangible results so quickly.”
