Would a porn website be profitable?

19 replies
I'm trying to get into Internet marketing and after doing some research I am interested on starting up a porn based website focused on a niche.
I have some money to invest in it about $2000 which I know is not a lot but hopefully enough to get started.
I'd just like to know what you guys think. Do you think a porn website would be profitable?

    I don't even know why you need to ask such a question, of course it's a profitable niche! Your only concern would be how to invest your money for your own advantage.

    I'd suggest you trying to watch

    pornorama.com
    xnxx.com
    xvideos.com

    and about 20 of their partners, which are lsited on said 3 sites. Not for the sake of fapping, just for the sake of understanding how they place ads and generate revenue.

    The way I see it mate, adult traffic is VERY hard to monetise considering the fact most visitors are nowadays only looking for quick-fix freebies and therefore aren't in a "shopping" type of mindset. I would focus on something a bit easier instead if you have a limited budget.

    Hope that helps.

    It's an extremely saturated niche, i don't think $2000 would cut it to be honest. This is one of the biggest and most used niches IMO.

  • I don't think so because its already saturated. Try something unique.

    Start up cost may be more though, as you need high resources servers to run such site, kinda of resources these site use, your $2k may not last for long.

    The adult industry is already saturated. Since there are so many free videos and tube sites out there it can be very hard to get paying customers, unless it's something unique. My advice would be to focus on a specific niche in the adult industry, and build a large network around it!

    Not that hard to monetize if you just have good new contents. Keep in mind SEX sells. why do you think car companies and some liquors are using hot babes to advertise their products when theyre not really related to adult industry. I say go to the right adult content provider and see what adnetworks can do for your adult sites. Adult has much more to offer.

    I guess it is profitable for the people starring in the video's, on the other hand I am not so sure about the online value, as i know all the horny guys out there only try and find the free views, or previews and don't sign up.

    I would start with a tube and embed videos from the bigger tubes likes xhamster, pornhub, theporndude. They're even paying you money for views. This way you won't lose a lot of money for hosting costs.

    The 90s are when sex sold online. You missed it.
    Unless you're a content producer, and extremely good at marketing, forget about it.

    I think if you add a new class of internet hardware that connects people - that would be where the $ is. Web cam to web cam. how about a sDevice to Odevice or sDevice to sDevice. You get my meaning.

    It should not be good business. It is restricted to Google and others. It should be avoided.

    It is if you got into it in 1997, otherwise it is profitable in theory, but it's like trying to build a start-up search engine to compete with Google.

    You're building a start-up to compete with Redtube and Pornhub, so you better have an incredible edge or advantage that will make them want to use you, and draw people to your site.

    It can totally work, you just need to be the best at it!
