This isn't my first journey thread. It's safe to say I failed my first one, for the same reason that I think a lot of people fail their's: they give up early or switch to another idea. I have so many half-assed projects that could have made it, but I quite halfway to try something else. This time I don't intend to succumb this, what I call the "serial-entrepreneurship" curse - always starting something new, but never finishing it. I'm not a pro, but been self-teaching many things for the last 5 years starting from highschool. I have about $20,000 in savings from working hard the past 4 years at an actual job, and now I have moved to a different country to study. However, my savings will eventually burn out, so this journey is a race against time. Otherwise I will be forced to get a normal job again. This time I will be making an adult streaming site. There is so much money to be made in the adult market, and I intend to tap into it. I don't need to become the #1 site or even a top 1000 site. I don't need all the money in the world, just enough to live on a passive income. I will be sharing my entire journey here, so if anyone else is doing a similar journey and wants some advice/questions, I will try to answer them all as well as any concerns you may have. As of now, the site isn't completed/public. SITE The niche is asian and style of site is blog-oriented. I am converting an existing adult asian site I found into a wordpress theme to use. The site I found is in Japanese, and I am just making an English version of it. For the blog content, I will use the same content that the original site uses, but translate to English. TRAFFIC Right now I have a good stable 500 daily incoming views from my xvideos porn upload journey, and intend to send them to my site once it is complete. I want to eventually get a large amount from returning visitors and search traffic, but will worry about that once site is completed. MILESTONES My eventual goal is to have $100 a day, but I don't know any time estimates or conversion rates because I have no data. So for now I will be making process milestones instead of result milestones. Milestone 1 - Comeplete wordpress theme by September 8, 2018 Milestone 2 - 50 blog posts by September 30, 2018 Milestone 3 - 120 blog posts by October 31, 2018 Milestone 4 - 200 blog posts by November 30, 2018 Milestone 4 - 300 blog posts by December 31, 2018 SERVER Currently using an OVH VPS - OpenStack KVM, 1 vCore(s), 2.4 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 40 GB SSD, Centos6, $6.87/month. I don't think this will be good enough for long, but will wait to upgrade until I have the necessary traffic. DOMAIN Already bought a good domain from GoDaddy. Bit pricey, but it's an investment. Also got WHOIS hiding since I don't actually want a porn site's name associated with my real name. Someone might harass me somehow is my realy info is public. MONETIZATION Since this is new journey and have to info, I will test different methods and see what pays best. I will focus on increasing traffic before optimizing monetization. I am good at analyzing statistics/probability, but need data (traffic) to put it to use. But for now, I will use the following: 1.) Vidoza (video popups/js crypto miner) 2.) CPA offers (JAVBucks/adverten/crackrevenue) There might be better ways to monetize, so help me out if you don't mind. Will update the thread regularly, so feel free to ask questions, etc. Also I am open to criticism and guidance from experts.
