Adult - Has Anyone Experience in this Industry?

25 replies
Hi everyone,

I am thinking about launching a few affiliate projects in the adult area, by buying banners on major porn sites and then converting the traffic.

While I do have advanced experience with conversion optimization and SEM, I never have tried anything in this sketchy area yet

Does anyone here have some advice to point me in the right direction? I am based in Germany and planing on focusing on that market, so its unlikly that I will interfere

    lol

    Porn traffic doesn't convert. 1:1,500-2,000 or worse is actually considered normal nowadays (some guys go up to 0:10,000+). The industry peaked around 2005 in terms of average $ per webmaster.

    It's illegal in your country. The German government used to (and still might) send letters to webmasters all over the world telling them to take their adult sites down. It was always a running joke that if adult webmasters ever visited germany, authorities would be waiting at the airport to arrest.

      It is not illegal to host porn sites in Germany although they do have very strict laws on it.

    I am into affiliate marketing bit NOT adult niche but I have heard of people making money from buying traffic from POF (Plenty of fish). You may want to search the forum and get more information on POF.

    Depends what is your projects. Pay sites will not convert from tubes and you will not make your money back. (i must admit, i have no experience with German traffic, so it can be different).

    Tube sites destroyed that industry. The real money is now in cams and dating. Start there.

      I've never done anything in it. I was offered a couple of different rather complex (and somewhat interesting, programmatically speaking) coding jobs in the industry, but I've always turned them down, even if I was short for cash. Just crosses my "weird" line I suppose.

        Whatever you do-don't use fake profiles. Thanks to social media, you don't have to resort to 'seeding' your dating site with fake profiles. Besides, fake dating sites are very easy to spot. Here's a hint: some use ridiculous handles and porn star pictures LOL. Why? Some use scrapers to build up their sites. The good news is you don't have to do this. You can use an API-based dating site.

          Thanks a lot.
          So I have to built API-based dating site. So how much it will cost to built a API-Based dating site? I have researched that I can get manual web scrapers @ very low cost, barely ($0.5 per hour) from freelancer or oDesk.

    Have to agree with what others have said. Porn traffic is general the lowest, think about it. After the user has just completed the user experience, they are most likely not going to be reaching for their credit card to buy you offer, right?

    The adult industry is pretty saturated, and the top dogs pretty much run the entire show - from free tube sites, to the more premium 'house hold name stuff'.

    What I will say however if your going to go this route, adult traffic + free dating offers (CPA) = $$$$$.

    Takes some testing and tweaking of course, but once you find a winner, boy have you found a winner.

    Good luck.

    I guess tube sites and cams dominates this niche nowadays. Fetishes changed overtime, and people don't seemed favorite porn stars anymore, people seemed to watch on random nowadays.

    Like it or not, I think the adult industry is only going to grow. I've seen a few WSO's about getting into it, but if you're talking websites I know that a lot of hosters won't host those sites. I think there is money to be made if you do it right. Might cost a lot to make a lot though...dunno.

    When you guys say ADULT, is it just "porn"? Cause there's so much other than just "porn". Would this lie into the category of "adult dating", "casual Dating". Sites like ashley madison etc. etc. That's what I'm wondering when you guys bring up "Adult affiliates". Is it just for porn or the whole grand scheme of "adult dating".

    Are you sure that this is the best idea? I mean, yeah, porn sites have a lot of traffic, but who pays attention to the banners?
