    I want to start a paysite and make original porn scenes in my city. As you can imagine, it isn't cheap to start a porn studio, even at the amateur level. What is the best way to sell the content and drive traffic to the paysite? I've heard of sites like adultpornstarcontent and selling on pornhub (from premium memberships), but it seems the the first is practically giving your stuff and thousands more away and the latter has a terrible conversion rate.

    You should focus on what your competitive advantage will be for your site. If you're going to create content, my suggestion is to do it in some under-served niche with a lot of demand. Look at other niche paysites for inspiration (Blacked and Abby Winters, for example). Make sure you can stand out from other sites.

    Are you a performer/model or a photographer or videographer? It makes a difference for how best to monetize. No matter what, you are going to want to think about multiple ways to monetize. For example, the three options you thought of first are not mutually exclusive, so you could do all of those. Beyond that, in 2016 and going into 2017, you have to monetize multiple ways, as it is unlikely any one specific publication venue is going to give you the ROI you would most want.

    Does it matter?
    Just a general question: how much does an 'amateur' girl get paid for 1hr porno? The footage should be around 2 hours to cut it into 1hrs I suppose. Guess we are talking about 3-4 hours of work here.

    Look at Clips4Sale or other clip selling sites. Put short promos on the major tube sites. Get affiliates and traffic trades. Also, a lot of people will request custom content - you just have to get out there and promote your services. Put a calendar together on your website of the girls you're going to shoot so people can ask for custom content. Happens all the time.
