    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.

    I completely understand your decision about WHOIS. I don't understand why isn't it automatically hidden.
    Like, I don't even want the info for my personal website to be public, let alone some other projects.
    Especially when it comes to adult stuff. Good luck, btw! :)

    Good luck with your journey!

    May I ask for an estimate about how many videos you uploaded (and how long have they been online) to get ~500 clicks daily? Thank you.

    I've been working on an adult streaming site thats been going pretty well. For your server you don't need much, I have 1 vcpu and 1 gb ram with like 30 gb storage and I've had 150 people on the website at the highest putting it only at like 20% of the load on the cpu, ram doesn't seem to change much with more visitors.

    You're going to need a lot more blog posts than that, I try to post 10-20 videos a day, people don't like coming back and seeing the same stuff all the time they want fresh content.
    Any idea what advertising you're going to use? I currently use Exoclick but get 0.060 cpm rates and I think I might be able to get higher than that with something else.

    I don't like the look of vidoza, I'm sure they're taking a chunk of that crypto when you could just put a script into the entire site. I am planning on doing this but also waiting to get a little more traffic before that.

    Ok, then I'll bump it up to at least 5 posts a day to start out.

    For traffic, I don't know how much advertising I want to do. I might just take a high converting banner from a network in my niche and have a freelancer reskin with my domain. Don't know who to advertise with, but will give Exoclick a try.

    You can disable Vidoza's crypto miner so you can use your own, but I think most of the money you make with them are with their popup and in-video ads. Once I can get a consistent 1k visitors on my site a day, I will start to focus a bit more on optimizing profit. First I will focus on traffic.

    If you don't mind sharing, on average how many visitors you get a day and what's their average session time?

    I have in-video ads and I can tell you that's where about 50% of my profit comes from. And you better believe they are going to take some of that profit from you.

    Pop-ups I really don't get very much from, thinking about disabling them too while I build more interested because I don't think everyone wants to see a pop-up right when visiting a new site, definitely a turn off.

    Right now only at around 1200 visitors a day with 4000 page views a day. Average session duration is around 2:10 looks like people like to get their business done and move on.
