After processing your payment via Paypal, Lovebook creates a unique profile page for the customer, using three photos, and buys targeting Facebook advertising for the campaign. You pitch for love will be shown in paid ad slots across your targeted groups, reaching tens of thousands of people.

"These ads have the potential to go viral," says James.

This means that the ads could reach Facebook users that would not be found on traditional dating sites, such as celebrities, James claims.

"If you have the same interests as Kim Kardashian or a Premier League footballer, you could end up on their page," he says.

Lovebook offers three packages, which promise different levels of Facebook reach.

With First Date, customers will receive a minimum of five "leads", in the form of Likes or direct messages.

The Lovebug package comes with dating advice to attract a wider pool of respondents, and generates more leads.

The most expensive option is Casanova, which also comes with a 10-minute pep talk before a first date. The majority of this cash is spend on the ads themsleves but Lovebook makes a small profit on each campaign.

James, who has just graduated from university, had the idea for the business when a friend complained that he couldn't meet women through existing dating apps and online services.

"Marco couldn't work out why people weren't responding so we decided to help him out," he explains.

"We created a targeted Facebook ad and he got 60 leads.
