In part 1 I discussed why someone might want to avoid this business. In part 2 it was how to start in this business. Welcome to the final part of my adult marketing guide where I discuss the most important part yet: Traffic.
Your site is online and you got it filled to the brim with content. The good news is the hard part is over. The bad news is the monotonous part is just beginning.
Getting traffic from Google is automatic. Once your site is indexed into Google’s search engine you will start receiving organic traffic from your content. The more content, the more organic traffic. After this you can try your hand at link building and other basic SEO practices to establish some authority but in the world of adult marketing content really IS king. However, Google is just ONE website. There are dozens and dozens of sites out there that will help you draw traffic to your site. I will list these below with my method of getting traffic from these sites.
To get traffic from Youtube you will need the following:
1. Firefox browser with the plugin called DownloadHelper.
2. Ease123 Video Watermarker software free trial. You want the free trial because it only processes 50% of the video and guess what? That makes a video a new unique video.
3. Pazera free MP4 to AVI video converter. You will use this to convert downloaded videos from Youtube into a format Ease123 can process.
Now, when you have the necessary software you will search for vids on Youtube with popular adult keywords: Free porn, ass and titties, porn star (name) etc. Adult keywords are plentiful and you can explore youtube with a variety of terms. Get creative and see what comes up or spend some time putting together a list of keywords first.
After you downloaded about 100 videos or so you will convert them with Pazera into an AVI format and run them through Ease123 video watermarker and watermark your website URL. The trial copy of Ease123 will only convert half the video and that is what we want because, as I mentioned before, this will make the video unique. You can even stop the video early to further “uniquify” it. Short clips of 1-2 minute videos is fine. This is quantity NOT quality were going for.
5-10 videos per Youtube account is fine. You can do less to play it safe but it takes more time and playing it safe isn’t a guarantee that you won’t lose those accounts either. So from 100 videos you should have anywhere from 10-20 accounts. Mix it up to make it look natural (7 vids in one account, 5 in another etc.).
So yes, we are essentially recycling Youtube videos and making them appear unique.
Now the daunting part: You have to change your IP address EVERYTIME you make a new Youtube account. Youtube is stricter than ever and even with an IP address change for each account expect to lose the majority of your vids and accounts. Another reason why this is a numbers game. But don’t worry, that google account you made when you created a Youtube account is going to be used for other purposes while it’s still good.
Changing your IP adress is best left up to a DSL modem. Visiting Adobe’s website to get rid of those nasty flash cookies that Youtube uses is step 1. Clearing your cache and browser of all activity history is step 2. Finally, unplugging your DSL modem and letting it sit for a few minutes is step 3.
If you have a cable modem you can try Shreyas Zare’s Technitium MAC Address Changer but it isn’t a guaranteed fix.
After all is said and done you should start seeing some direct traffic immediately. Then it’s just a matter of rinsing and repeating.
Sex.com is a pinterest clone site for adult content. There are many of them out there but this one is one of the more popular ones. Remember that Google account we made for Youtube? Take it right over to this site, create an account, and start scraping your site’s content so that you can put it up on Sex.com with a link back to your site. People generally find that Sex.com traffic is poor when it comes to converting but there is no such thing as “poor traffic” there is, however, such a thing as untargeted traffic. I find people’s assesment of a site’s traffic is the result of their inability to match up the right kind of content with the right kind of offers one is promoting. Real people are real people. This makes them “good traffic” alone. If you don’t market what they want it’s your own fault.
Creating dozens and dozens of accounts through Facebook is hard these days so it’s better to go the quality over quantity route if you want to use FB, unlike Youtube where quantity is king since account creation is so much easier. So use that Gmail account you got when you made your Youtube account and let’s make a Facebook account with it.
Creating a page of a fairly attractive girl that like adult content is a way to get a lot of people’s attention. There is something about a hot girl that is into other hot girls that just turns guys on. The sense of realism will also trigger a response to your visitors and, as long as you continuously update your FB page with links to new content you upload on your site you will have quite the following in no time. Just remember not to post any adult content on the Facebook page itself or the ban hammer cometh.
Twitter must love WordPress because there are dozens of twitter plugins that enable instant tweets to be sent out everytime you make a post on your WordPress blog. Setting up a matching Twitter account to promote your blog is a no brainer. It’s easy and will get you a little traffic for literally no work. Now if you have a static site with a set amount of content then Twitter probably won’t do you much good as it is better left to sites that update frequently.
Porn forums are plentiful and a great source of traffic (as long as you abide by the rules). Not much trickery here as it’s really just all about being a good contributor to the forum. If somebody starts a thread requesting a certain kind of content and your site has it post it up. Or perhaps there is a discussion thread about a famous porn star. Join the discussion and prove you are a “real member.” Make sure you have a link in your signature to your site and on your profile page and start posting. Join discussions and continue to contribute. In time, you will be a valued member of the forum and you will see an influx of traffic from this. A few nice porn forums are Freeones, Planetsuzy, and Forumophilia. Again, the key here is to take a little time and not be spammy. Post on these forums as you would a forum that you follow with real interest. Growing one good account on a porn forum is worth a hell of a lot more than constantly losing accounts and creating new ones. Porn forums are another “quality over quantity” approach to adult marketing.
Honestly, I don’t have much experience with email and I want to keep it that way. Too much risk when it comes to the CAN-SPAM act but that doesn’t mean you can’t build an email list as long as your listees voluntarily join it. Email list building is a long and daunting process but having your own list built up over time can be valuable as you can run several offers by your listees repeatedly and possibly make some money. Again, my experience is limited with adult email marketing and the laws are no joke (how does 20 years in prison sound?) so if you don’t know what you are doing stay away from this approach to adult marketing.
At this point it’s rinse and repeat. Make another Gmail account and use it to make all the other social media accounts out there. Make a new Facebook page with a new girl, make a new Sex.com account, new forum accounts, etc. Rinsing and repeating is why I mentioned at the beginning of this part of the guide that this is the monotonous part.
If after all your efforts fail and you can’t seem to get organic traffic you can always pay for it. Of course, this is literally a gamble as there is no telling if your ROI will be in the black. Expect to lose money through split testing and generally mismatched marketing. I never have paid for traffic in my life and don’t plan on it is as there is simply too much free traffic out there to pass on. If you still feel like paying for it you can always head over to Exoclick or Juicyads, setup an advertiser account, and cross your fingers.
GEO TARGETED TRAFFIC
I hear people requesting traffic from certain countries many times. 9 times out of 10 this is the result of some high paying CPA offer that the webmaster is trying to capitalize on. It’s hard to geo target traffic but here is one trick:
Using Google Translate you can put up text on your adult website for the country you want to target. For example, if you are going after German traffic, instead of putting up “Welcome to my Porn Site!” as your header put up “Willkommen auf meiner Porno-Site!” Simply put, the trick is to use foreign text to get the attention of the corresponding country you are targeting.
So that’s it. Follow this guide if you are positive that you want to make money with an adult website and you will.
