Hi everybody,

Today I was searching the Internet trying to find a good course for newbies entering adult niche.

The goal is to open adult website, drive traffic to it and monetize it.

Does anyone know a good course on this?

Many thanks in advance!

      While it's not my bread and butter and I've left that space....... doing so was a conscious personal choice based imore on the fact that I didn't want to do that while raising a girl and less on the money I made.

      I did well and the traffic is stoooooopid CHEAP
      I could go on for hours. First, were you selling porn or using porn to sell dating, cams, and penis pills?

    You need to take it easy.

    The people to whom you addressed the above are respected long time members here who contribute value to the forum on a regular basis - longer and more so than you

    I almost issued an infraction against your account for insulting members

    I decided to cut you some slack because after the needless tantrum, your post was actually helpful.

    Thanks for that but please, mind your behavior here.

      I care not for how long these too have been members here, time served on a IM forum does not equate to success.

      Whether I have been here a day or 10 years should not be a factor for how I am judged on my own experience and knowledge.

      What I said is solid advice and proven unlike the supposed respected members.

      Not trying to offend anyone here but its annoying when people say thing like stay away from that niche and blah blah blah, if someone tells you it can' be done it's usually a case of they can't do it so don't want you to be able to do it.

      Anyway I stand by what I said there advice was NONSENSE after seeing what they have posted I disagree with what you are saying and would state that they have not contributed any value to the forum.

      Anyway just talking from experience unlike the above (not you of course the others)

        I get what you're saying and like I said before, your post was actually a good post.

        The problem I had stemmed from the name calling and not the post.

        It's evident that you're passionate and we appreciate that. Just try to keep it civil.

        Now....... Let's get back OT for what could be a good discussion.

    Now I just wondered why there were so many useless replies with just a few words like "use wordpress"

    I see as I am a new member warriorforum has defaulted that signatures to not show for new members you have to go to c panel and turn them on.

    That is nice to know since it stops newbies from being drawn into the lead capture rubbish from people that have no idea what they are doing kinda like noobs selling to noobs right.

    Anyway I am way off topic but it explains all the one word or few phrase replies on threads, people just one to spam their sig link.

    There is money in adult. But if you can't figure out how to make money in mainstream, you probably won't in adult. So I hope you don't think its easier or something.

    I am not new to IM. I'm in it since 1998. I mostly operated in non-IM niches.

    The reason I want to get in adult business is because it is fun. I just want to find a solid system that works. Thanks everyone!

      That I can understand. Do you have any interest in making content? Do you have a specific fetish that you love?

        No, I would purchase or embed content and of course I have specific fetish that I love

        Not looking to open a membership site though, just saying. More like high traffic site to convert that traffic

          Ok, that is good. This is going to have to be a labor of love if you want to make money. The only money I'd spend at first is on good domains and hosting. Try to figure out who is producing new stuff in your niche. Start at clips4sale.com Some of the store owners also have affiliate programs. Search google and figure out every single affiliate program in your niche. You probably already have a good idea, but determine whose content is stale and 10 years old. I wouldn't mess with them unless they are actively making new stuff. A lot of programs make it look like they have new stuff when they don't. You will have to figure this out.

          As much as I hate to say it - start out with a blog just to learn your niche. Then move on to tubes or other methods. Reddit has just about every fetish as a subreddit. Carefully post content there leading back to your site. Experiment around with social media, but read the TOS of the sponsors (as they are called in adult. Not offers).

          Everyone steals everything in adult, but don't go down this road. Fetishes are usually tight communities and if a sponsor cares about his/her content you will get DMCA'ed. If a sponsor doesn't care about their content they are really not worth promoting. If you love the fetish then you want to help the producers -- they work hard.

          As far as selling ancillary items that is going to depend on your niche. New products always sell much better. When Fleshlights first came out I sold a bazillion of them. Now I couldn't sell one to save my life. Same with dating, cams, etc. Check CrakRevenue to see if they have anything in your niche.
          AdultFriendFinder doesn't really convert anymore - everyone joins fetlife for free.

          I can't express enough how important it is to learn to crop a good image. This may sound stupid but it is a skill. Images work better than screen caps.The good tube scripts will rank your movies based on clicks, but you need good traffic to make the algorithm work.

            Oh yeah, you mentioned purchasing content. Don't unless you absolutely know what you are doing.

      mpluto,
      as you are not new to IM, and you consider the adult business `fun`...

      What is exactly the ´fun´you find in it? Answering to yourself to this question could
      point you in the correct (and funnier) direction.

      A solid system has been mentioned in this very thread, Gman9 provided an actionable plan...
      and XponentSYS can surely provide useful hints.

      Just track conversion and/or monetization!

        I got into a bit of a pissing match with Gman9 but we communicated with one another and worked it out.

        In communicating with him, it did become clear that though he may have a "sharp wit" about him that can come off harsh...... it stems from the fact that he DOES know what he's talking about.

        I implore you to consider his actionable advice in this very thread.

          I don't find the post you're referring to, appears to have been removed. "Gman9 provided an actionable plan... " "I implore you to consider his actionable advice in this very thread." Would like to see what Gman9 said. Thanks.

            Looks like sock pupped marketing to me. Gman9 is "a millionaire 10x over."

            Lets hear the system, I"ll be glad to pick it apart or vouch for it.

    Adult is tough these days but certainly do-able. Be sure to look for other ways to monetize the site that complement the adult space. [wink] [wink]

    I tried to dabble in the adult website industry. For some reason, i found it hard to keep focus on my business lol. Instead of promoting adult sites and content, i wound up serving up about 100 clicks an hour on other adult sites, and of course... got 0 clicks from my own sites. If you can keep focus, go hard at it. Alot of people prefer watching free adult stuff online (with all their favorite fetishes) than paying $40 for a 2-hour DVD. Feel me?

    I think I have seen a few products on Clickbank that offer training on how to market effectively in the adult niche.

    You might want to go there and do a careful search. You might find it.

    How do you mean exactly? In general as far as competition then no! I don't Could be a very good market. The adult market is huge online plus the fact that people feel more comfortable looking at this stuff behind their computer than at an adult store or something. You wouldn't or shouldn't have a problem with googles organic traffic if that is something your thinking for marketing. ppc could be very good for you.
