    Hello everyone,

    This isn't my first time posting. I posted a few months ago about an online sex store that I started. I feel like I have the perfect ingredients to make a lot of money with the way I have the site set up but I am 1. not getting any traffic and 2. not getting any sales. I am totally new to ecommerce and did some research before I actually made the site live and CANNOT for the life of me understand why I'm not making any money. This is a one-of-a-kind site. I am willing to pay someone to help me get this thing off the ground or if anyone is interested in helping me free of charge, that would be better. Just a little background info on me- I am a single mother of 4. My middle daughter is handicapped and I work my ass off to be able to provide a nice home for my children. It is SOOOO difficult juggling work, school, kids, and bills by myself. I decided that the best way for me to be available to them and still maintain is to make my own money instead of making someone else rich. I am willing to go just as hard for myself as I do for my boss but I need someone to show me the ropes. Sometimes I feel like I am just overwhelmed with information and really don't know where to begin. PLEASE HELP ME. I read a lot of great posts on these forums and I'm definitely not looking for charity. I'm just looking for a way to get a full-time income working from behind my computer. Thank you all in advance. Especially if you took the time to read my post!!!

    go for ads? The whole ecommerce concept runs on ads. Unluckily for you, that you won't be able to use adwords/fb ads as I believe.. Look for adult ad networks. That is the key to your success.

    Of all the things, you start with the sex niche!!! Here's some advice, try selling the idea/website/domain to someone who has some knowledge about it and deal with something more practical or easier to manage.

    You're a single mum you say, why not start a blog and start sharing your posts on social media.
    • Talk about daily struggles
    • How to cook meals in 5 mins. for 3 kids
    • Life hacks for single moms
    It will take time but you can certainly bring some decent traffic. Hang out long enough on BHW and you can grab a freebie here and there from SMM shares to lots more.

    Having said the above, i'm certain you must be just trolling the hell out of BHW to get some free done for your tasks. Hope i'm wrong though. Good luck.

    I'm not looking for anything for free. I am willing to pay. I should have been more specific about the free part, and asked for free advice. I know sometimes people want to charge you for consultations but don't actually HELP you to do anything. The website is already up and running. It is something that I am passionate about. I know nothing about blogging that is why I didn't start with that before I created the site. Thank you for your feedback though. All is appreciated.

    Since it is the internet, I can see how this thread can be a bit suspicious, but for the sake of discussion I won't assume anything.

    I'm sorry that you're in this kind of situation, being a game developer I can't really help you with e commerce, but I'll try to pass on some ideas.

    I think the whole adult industry thing isn't something you should be starting out with. It's a realm of its own and will be overwhelming for you to convert/get traffic initially. Focus on something you'd actually commit to, not something that looks like "easy money".

    I'd also recommend you start with something more simple, like blogging or v-logging on Youtube in the single mother/raising kids/healthy living for mothers kind of niche. There is a huge demand from single mothers for motivation for living healthy, working out, raising kids, hearing about the daily life as a single mother(so they can relate to others).

    All you need is a decent phone camera if you go into V-logging, and a little bit of research in a niche you could appeal to the single mother audience.

    I'm taking a guess that you're a native English speaker, so that's something on your side.

    The thing here would be research. Look for a niche you could commit to, not something you'd try a few weeks and quit. I think, without a doubt, if you get into the right niche without too much competition, make some quality blogs or videos(if you decide to go Youtube route), and you monetize with some affiliate products, you could definitely start making a decent income to stabilize your family.

    I don't know if this is something you'd want to go into though, but if it is, I'll try to share a bit more if it could help out

    Hello, Take a look at Backpage, Craigslist and Classifiedsforfree.com! They all have sections where you could post information about your store!

    Good luck

    Thank you so much for your feedback. I really do appreciate it. I'm not sure what I said that would make my post suspicious but I do apologize in advance. I really am just looking for some help.

    Lol no it's not what you said that made it suspicious, it's just the nature of the internet, you never know who's behind the screen(nothing personal)

    I'd say look into the Youtube thing, I think it's something you could start with very little risk and since you have the experience in it, there is a chance you could succeed with it

    There is nothing wrong with adult, we all know adult makes most of the money online. It is a bit harder to survive on this niche because adult niche is dominated by heavyweight players and you will have to complete against them. But if you have an unique idea, with the right actions you will eventually be able to make your own place and when that happens, all the efforts will pay off big time.

    I don't know what kind of site you have so I can't say something specific because marketing/promotional methods will depend on it. Media buy is risky for starters and takes a big pocket. I would probably look into ppc, contact related forums and websites and offer webmasters for a banner space.

    Good luck :)

    LOL, please dont get offended but making money online, getting traffic, mantaining a website and such things are not easy by any means, if you want to work hard and get stable income you will always need experience and moral for that, ofc there are easyer ways to get dirty money without any kind of knowledges but it involves illegal activities that can only be discused in the deep web and such places, here in BHW the maximum are the clickbait attempts to micro-scam people but i dont recommend you to do so, it also involves some hard work i must say it, i have one of that methods and its not just make a blog and c'aaammmmon people this is up baby, dont f*kin run away from it, here boy... You need BH SEO for dat LOL :D.

    I suggest you to hire a SEO for your market site, i am myself a good SEO so if you need my services dont hesitate to PM me and i will be glad to help, i dont usually care about what kind of jobs i accept, even if it is a sex store.
