This is a mistake so often made and the issue at hand is actually a simple one.In fact, if you go to see in reality, most of the world’s leading businesses had a successful pivot after which their success skyrocketed.Realizing videos of anything would be better than no videos, I populated our new dating site with videos of 747s taking off and landing. We were so desperate for some actual dating videos, whatever that even means, that we turned to the website any desperate person would turn to, Craigslist.”As we read earlier, the co-founders tried many things to get the site more traffic and inflow and get people to upload videos, but it was all a waste.

Before Tinder ever existed, there was a dating site for people looking out for potential partners: You Tube. You Tube, being the dominating video-sharing site today, initially started off as a dating website for lonely lovers.

At the South by Southwest tech, film and music conference in Austin, Texas, Chen said: The site’s purpose was to allow its users to upload a video profile of themselves for others to view.

Moving on a year ahead, on October 2006, it was announced that Google purchased Youtube for US$1.65 billion in stock.

.65 billion in stock.

You Tube, the majestic empire of a video-sharing website that it is today, was founded by Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim.

Similar to this, You Tube has made many changes since its inception, which is one of the main reasons why it has been such a success throughout. More than a billion hours are spent, each day, watching You Tube videos, and there are more than 400 hours of content uploaded every minute (as of February 2017).

Initially, when You Tube’s website’s idea of a dating platform failed, they immediately decided to change it to a general platform for all kinds of videos. Most entrepreneurs are not ready to give up their initial vision and because of this they are even ready to jeopardize their entire business.

Just like You Tube and many more successful businesses, never be afraid to question the motive and vision of your business and whether or not it is actually a viable one.

They key is to respond well to your customer’s reactions and be ready to face the challenge that might be to change your plan and pivot.

Right from newspapers in 1685 to modern online dating apps today, people have been using media to propel their love life and relationships.
