I just had to reply. I havent posted here in quite a long time,,
I'm not trying to be rude here, but I do wish to answer your questions & help you.
Yes, you can make money with porn, however, it is not a get rich quick scheme. If you're serious, you're going to need some serious financial backing. You can not host an adult site on a measly virtual host.. You will need a dedicated server. You also need DRM, you need to watermark your images, you need an attorney as well.. You need to very aware of the laws such as obscenity laws, 18 usc 2257, HR4472, etc & keep meticulous records. You need password protection software such as strongbox, you need a payment processor & you need to purchase traffic as well.. you will also need an affiliate backend & tracking software..
To put it simply, you need MINIMUM 10K+ to even get started.
& yes, bangbros does make serious cake, but that is after YEARS of work.. They have member retention.. ie: members who rebill their subscription..
Most people that think they can just jump in & make pornsites & earn fast cash are really setting themselves up for dissapointment,, There's alot more to it than building pages & putting it online. If you make any errors legal wise, you're pretty much screwed & up the creek.
now, that applies to a membership based site,,,
Now, let's get to promoting other peoples sites.. like bangbus.. should you go to bangbus affiliate program & join, now you need to send traffic to them & hope you make sales & earn $$,, again, good luck...
Thanks to all the idiots with dollar signs in their eyes, the market is over saturated with advertisements to all porn sites... You will be competing with nearly 6 million other websites that have the same advertisements... This is not 1996 anymore.. You are too late to just jump in without knowing the ropes & it will take you alot of time to learn those skills of marketing to an adult audience.. It is an extremely competitive & very cutthroat industry.. You need to be wary of cheaters, scammers, thieves, liars & more..
If you have a few thousand to jump in & take a risk & have no fear of the fbi knocking on your door to check records, or are clear that the local sheriff wont slap you with obscenity, go right ahead..
There is money to be made, but it takes serious investment & time, & knowledge & a **** load of patience.. most people wont see their first check or payment for at least, minimum 90 days.
