If your marketing adult websites then you've probably noticed the huge drop in sales over the past year or so. Really its being going down hill for three years or more but a lot of people feel like it happened yesterday or that free porn, or tube sites are the main cause of the problem. Well they all contribute to the problem but none are the exact cause. The biggest cause is herd mentality. Everyone else is doing it so why shouldn't I and you still see it in posts today. There was a recent bunch of threads about tgps and should they start one. A guy I know known as " The Shemp " who runs a huge successful TGP gives the best answer to that. If its 1998 start a TGP. If not forget it. Move on. It's The Age Of The Blog Blogs are a lot of work but there is still good to great money to be made there. And listen a pure text hand written blog will outperform a automatically created and up dated one any day of the week. Learn To Write Good Sales Text Learn to write good sales text and make sure you know what you write about. If its a micro nice know it inside out. And micro niches will out perform any other niche. If you can find content for midgets pissing while playing twister nude you will make more money than the guy pushing midget porn. But keep in mind that sales text is what is important. Sales text and titles and think dirty. Write like your a horny 18 year old school girl and you will be successful. Black, Grey, Or White Hat In today's market you have to use everything you can to create traffic and sales. You must be willing to put on a Black, Grey, or White hat to rake in the sales. If you have to ewhore and pretend to be 22 female and in college so fucking what. Do it. Make the money. Be willing to do what ever you need to do to make sales. Because I will tell you that I will do what ever it takes. If its cookie stuffing I will do it. If its pushing Zango or similar sites I will do it. If I can steal sales away from other people I will do it. And I will laugh all the way to the bank. Never let anyone tell you how to operate sites you create. So what if every other Joe Blow isn't doing it that way. Two things I have always said and both are very true today. 1. If You Build It They Will Come. And yes its very true. If you build it they will come. But you have to let them know where its at. Check my threads here for great traffic building ideals. Because if you read those threads you will find all kinds of ways to build traffic and if you build traffic you will build sales. You should try to build at least one new site a day even if its a simple one page site. Do it every day. At the end of 1 year you will have 365 sites. All setting out there fishing for sales for you. 2. Think Outside The Box. Yes think outside the box. Don't just fit in. Try to come up with new ideals and implement them to see if they will work. Finally I hope I have said something to help someone. No I won't post sites of mine. Sorry I don't want them copied. But they are some of the busiest sites on the net today. And you can do the same thing today in today's market if you have the courage to take the first steps and get started. You should spend the biggest part of every day building sites. And building and cultivating traffic. There are hundreds if not thousands of traffic ideals here in this forum you could use to get traffic for your adult sites. And remember that sales text and titles are the most important things in your life. Well that's all for now. Hope I gave someone food for thought. Have fun guys and gals and hopefully make some money. This article is by Thomas Byers aka Crazyhorsesghost and may be reprinted anywhere as long as this tag line is reprinted with it.
