Anyone have success with Adult media buys?

11 replies
I can't seem to get profitable at all. I am using exoclick and have already spent about 300 dollars while only making back about 130. My best banners are getting .17-.20 ctr, my best landing page is getting about 40% ctr but no matter which offer i link to, it barely converts.

Is there anyone here that is killing it on these adult media buys?

    Looks like you know what the problem is.. That the offer doesn't convert well.

    Switch up the offer and keeping testing.

    For any media buy I'd work on the ad, split test the landing page, rotate the offers on the backend to see if you can increase conversions. The fact you're getting some conversions shows some hope.

    There are people making 6 figures per month in adult. So yes.


    Regarding your problem, 300$ is not going to get you far. I personally spent over 2k on traffic junky and Exo click before finding any profitable campaigns. You need to spend big in order to fine tune your funnels, angles before you even get to really and truely test creatives. You'll also need to have access to good converting offers.

    Once you have a well optimized funnel, you can get into large media buys. I personally haven't got there since I need more experience but this is where the real money is made. Buying ad space on a monthly basis for way lower cpm costs.


    You need to look at this as a real business. You'll probabaly need at least 10k to start any kind of business in europ and north america and I'm talking about very small businesses that are never going to have the potential that adult industry has. You can't expect to be able to make any real money unless you treat this as a real business and any real business requires investment when you start it.

    It's not rocket science. You have to keep testing and striving for better rates until you hit profit. Trying to get your payout bumped or find a higher paying offer might also help.

    The guys who are banking huge with adult media buys have bigger budgets which allow them to negotiate lower rates. But they had to start somewhere though.

    The money is the motive.

    I have tried several offers and they barely convert, this is with several high ctr banners and landing pages. Frustrating.

    Wow, you actually just described what to me sounds like an awesome potential campaign. Cause you're getting back almost -50% ROI, normally those campaigns end up giving anywhere from %50 to %200 ROI when optimized. Just pick your best converting banners/sites/landers and run with them, blocking and forgetting about everything else, you should have some decent amount of data now... unless you were testing different banners & sites like crazy, spreading yourself too thin... which is always a posibility, so if you're on a budget use the KISS system, and don't test too many variables.

    Cheers & happy hollidays.

      I AM using the best banners and landing page, but all the offers have horrible epc no matter the offer.

    You definitely need a huge budget to split test before you get profitable.

    I have made most of my money with adult, I don't know but in my mind I find it the easiest niche to work with, change the offer/network.
    What kind of offers are you working with?
