Tinder Boost: All You Need to Know before Using One - 2021 Edition.

Do you want your tinder to blow up? Tinder boosts are the best way to do that.

They can get your tinder profile in front of more people, and when they see it, it's likely they will swipe right on you! Tinder boosts are simple to use, but there is a lot of confusion about how exactly tinder boosts work. In this article I am going to walk through the basics of tinder boosts so that everyone can take advantage of them without wasting money or time.

I will try to give hands-on and real life metrics on what you can achieve with boosts! Tell me your experience in comments!

We are going to walk you through everything you need to know about Tinder Boosts. Feel free to jump to any special part if you can't wait for it!

how tinder boosts work

How does Tinder Boost work?

The basic Tinder boost lasts for half an hour. It is super simple: Your profile will be placed at the top of many users' dating profiles during that time period so you'll receive more swipes and matches on your account!

Tinder claims to expose your profile to x10 more profiles than usual! HUGE.

Two little tips to understand straight away about Tinder Boost/

First of all, Your position in the decks after the Boosts is heavily correlated to your original position. Therefore, the better ELO you had, the more likely you REALLY end up on the very top for many users.

Second thing, during the Boost, my experiments have shown that your likes are favored too. So keep swiping!

How to get tinder boosts

How to get Tinder Boost? How much do they cost?

To get a Tinder boost, you just have to tap on that little purple lightning sign.

You can then buy some if you need!

As usual with Tinder, pricing depends on your age, gender and location. At the moment, it is roughly 8 USD per boost, with decreasing prices if you buy bundles!

Hold on before you rush there. You also get a monthly free boost with all subscriptions: Tinder Plus, Tinder Gold and Tinder Platinum.

Sounds good, but I can't help shedding a tear thinking of the early days with the free weekly boost! Good times!

Then you are free to use them when you want clicking that purple button: Make it them likes rain!

Warning! Tinder can be sneaky. Can't count the number of times I clicked that button by mistake, or ended up clicking boost again button after a boost. You have been warned!

Best time to use tinder boosts

Best time to use a Tinder Boost?

One of the smartest questions right there! You are free to use your boosts when you want to. But you should use them when it is most useful.

Well, then, what is useful exactly? Easy: when a lot of people you like are swiping too.

If you are not super specific about the type of people you are attracted too, I can tell you the key facts about dating apps attendance:

  • People are mostly swiping during evening / nights.
  • Best days are Sunday, Monday and Thursday.

You know what you have to do!

Unlike what most say, I will add a bit there. If you are attracted by nightbirds, you may be tempted to use it during week-end late nights for instance!

That's the NICHE strategy we talk a lot about with our clients.

Make your experiments and let us know what works best for you.

Are tinder boosts worth it?

Are Tinder Boost worth it?

Tinder boosts are so worth it. Do not hesitate to spend a few bucks for tinder boost if you can afford them! You will get more matches and tinder likes with increased exposure of your account, which is what tinder is all about in the end!

It's up to you how much time / money you want to spend. We cover this whole money idea in our Ebook, finally solving all the mindsets questions.

I am just going to remind you that investing some money is totally normal in the dating area! Who has never paid a bar entrace 😈.

What are some reasons we actually need some boosts?

Fight the drowning syndrome

First thing is, as I described in my article about the ELO, Tinder has mechanical effects. Every time a client is boosted, or favoured in anyway, he mechanically pushes the others down in the dating profile pile.

It is really IMPOSSIBLE for any profile to stay at the top of its early performance.

Time efficiency

Swiping can be very time consuming. It works! I get many high quality matches from just regular swiping sessions, with a good profile.

It is ok to be in a hurry though. You are busy with a demanding work, and can't spend days waiting for the perfect match. Fine! Here is your shortcut, the boost.

Travel booster

Similar to the previous point, boosts are super efficient while traveling. You lend in a new area and need some quick connections. Boost are actually PERFECT when your profile as not yet been shown to many people!

A recipe for good holidays!

Why my tinder boost dont work

3 Reasons my boost does not get me matches

Weak profile - Low ELO score

The MAIN reason is often that your profile is too cheap. I see you complaining already but I stop you already: too cheap means you simply have not put in the work to get a good one.

Trust me, I've been there.

Getting a solid profile, with a good ELO score is mostly hard work!

You're lucky, we are here to help you out with our profile review, and the Ebook you can get!

But please do me a favor: don't waste your money on boosts until you already have genuine good results! Don't complain to Tinder either as they do not care!

Small population around you

If you leave in a super small area, your profile will be shown to people whatever happens. No use to buy boosts, or even Tinder Gold in that matter, like I mentioned last week!

The number of people is quite a good key of success on Tinder though.. But that is another story.

Wrong time

Launching a boost on an early Monday morning is likely to be disappointing! Think about the attendance schedule we mentioned earlier!

Bonus: some range of results

When do you know that your boost works well? No one shares metrics, I will!

To give you an idea of what works and what does not, here is a range of results I had in the past.

With an average, not optimized profile, without even paying a subscription, I would get 15 average quality likes during a boost. Not great heh!

On the other hand, after carefully working on my profile, resetting it correctly, with platinum subscription activated, I toped at 150 likes in half an hour. Now we are talking!

This level is obviously the super high end of the spectrum.

With a good profile, you can expect something in the 50-80 likes during a boost.

Don't hesitate and start optimizing TODAY if you are bored of shitty boosts results.

Tinder super boost

Tinder super boost and extra boosting times.

Tinder Boost are a super renewable and never ending revenue source for Tinder. What do you do in that case? You expand it!

Tinder Super Boost is the big brother of Tinder Boost. It is for paying users only!

You can just use it at night (thats actually great given what we wrote before). There are several versions:

  • 3h boost for around 30 USD.
  • 6h boost 60 USD
  • 12h boost 120 USD

Huge investment. Huge returns!

It is reserved for the wealthiest, that want the most volume and results. You are advised.

Certainly don't use this unless you have a very successful profile already!

How long do the boost REALLY last?

Well, by some girl will see your profile after the 30min span. This is why the effect lasts more, and why you should swipe while boosting.

I sometimes get effects DAYS after the boost has gone!

Can someone see if I used a boost?

Using Tinder, you will personally see the origin of some matches:

  • Matches from your like queue (Tinder Gold and Tinder Platinum only).
  • Boost (with the purple lighting).
  • Super likes.

However, except super likes, people can not know that you have been using a boost!

Tinder boost do and dont

Do's and Don't's to get the most of your boosts.


Get a solid profile

First and MOST important step. I will never say it loud enough.

Boosts buy you exposure. Not success!

If your profile does not have regular matches that suit you, with a subscription, then work on that!

Then we can think about boosting up all that!

Be ACTIVE while boosting

First thing I noticed with my first boosts: the multiplier drops to 0 if Tinder is not opened on my phone!

Therefore make sure to keep it active.

And pro tip, opening Tinder often is a good strategy to get a high ELO!

Swipe while boosting

Being active is good, swiping is better.

Swipe when you have tinder boost running! Those swipes will likely be pushed too. You can get a great number of additional matches that way.

A shame to leave them on the side no?


Do experiments

Boosting is game time. Or even money time! That's not the time you want to do experiments on!

You don't try out a new pic, unless you have money to throw around, or a new bio and so on.

Be efficient!

Randomly activate boosts

Time is super important! We said it already, but the time of the week can change dramatically the outcome.

I did the experiment for you, and I would not leave peak hours anymore!


Hope you liked it! I summarized my findings from years of trial and errors, that should cut your learning curve already.
