Although the internet has made free porn very accessible, there is still a lot of money to be made from running an adult website. About one quarter of the internet is porn or porn-based, so you would think that porn websites weren’t profitable, nobody would be spending money to run them.
You should note that you do not need to be a webmaster or possess high level coding skills to be able to get started. And it’s not too expensive either. With as little as a hundred dollars, you can get your website up and running; you just need to be patient and dedicated.
Choose your niche first of all, this is what will make a difference in your earnings. Post high quality related content regularly and get your marketing skills game up. Once you do this, you will draw customers who like your work and are willing to spend money on it.
There are two types of porn websites according to the channels by which they deliver content: live streaming and video clips downloads. Live streaming works by deducting a percentage of earnings by the back stage users of the site.
Streamers also make money based on their porn skills, so you can set up a channel and get people to stream their content, sit back and watch your money pile up; while video clips make use of pre-recorded videos uploads and playback. This is relatively more profitable. Money is made by subscriptions and referrals.
Every adult site owner must go through these basic procedures:
- Record videos or buy them from porn companies, or mass upload them on the site
- Get a dedicated server for the website and a domain name.
- Create a user-friendly website UI and layout
- Upload these videos regularly to accessible formats
- Selling advertising as soon as traffic builds
If you run a membership site, there are barriers you will have to scale through to make money, though; like the difficulty of your website getting accepted by a payment processing platform. Many credit card systems like PayPal have a bias against websites with porn content. You might have to go through some hoops to find a credit processing company that will accept your website.
There are also legal issues, involving ownership and copyright infringements, so you will need to have proof of ownership for your website content handy at all times.
While if you create a tube site, people are going to come to your site to watch free porn and you can monetize it with ads from different affiliate programs related to your niche. If you are a newbie, I have create an article to show you exactly step-by-step how to monetize your tube site.
Adult industry is huge and in addition to making money wit a tube site or a membership site there are also other options like:
- Dropshipping sex toys
- Staring an adult dating site
- A phone sex business
- Adult blogs
- An adult phone sharing site (like the Pinterest of Porn)
- An aggregate porn site
You cannot be all things to all people so it’s necessary to choose your preferred type of business and focus on that, especially as a newbie.
Making money off porn can be challenging, but if you are dedicated to it, you will start cashing in pretty soon.
