    Ok so I wanted to introduce myself.

    I was previously in the adult business. I made most of my money using blackhat techniques.

    My 2 best money makers were
    1) Craigslist ads
    2) Uploading videos to tubes with watermarks.

    I made over $80,000 in 2007. However I had to quit in 2008 due to some personal reasons. Now I'm trying to make a come back.

    I have a full time job as a Network Technician making $40k a year. So I have enough money to live on. This will be a part time job.

    My goal is to match my income by the end of the year. $1000 a month by the end of July. If I work hard I think I can achieve these goals.

    I fully expect it to take time and a lot of hours. I know how this works. I'm familiar with the process. You have to fail a lot to get lucky.

    When you do succeed in these ventures it often feels like luck. Because so many things don't work.

    --------------

    Anyway a bit about me. I'm very intelligent. I come up with innovative ideas. I have a bit of programming background. I can do things like write scripts to exctact things from massive amounts of websites. I can write scripts to populate HTML. I've written scripts to populate blogs. I've written scripts to make posts on craiglist and upload videos to tubes. I know how to edit videos, I did a lot of that in the past.

    In short I have quite a bit of experience. I spent 5 years working full time in the adult industry.

    So yeah here's my introduction. I'm looking for ideas on how to make money.

    You will find that lots has changed in the game but that shouldn't dishearten you. You seem to have enough knowledge to know what's going to work and work hard on that. Good Luck

    Thank you. Yeah I talked to a guy who made millions in adult back in the day. He told me Adult is all but dead.

    So I need to find new ways to make money that don't involve it. Too much free material out there.

    Hey welcome back. Things have definitely changed a bit, however, some things have not. Most of the same techniques actually still work, they just need to be done on a much larger scale. The problem is, security has gotten much tighter as well. So not only do you need to run/do more, but you're up against increasing measures to try and stop people from even trying to start. The mobile scene has changed the game quite a bit as well. In short, it may take a moment to get a handle on a lot of the new platforms and how to use them effectively, but it sounds like you have the right attitude and goals. Good luck to ya though, and again, welcome back :)

    those methods were hot back then
    now they are more saturated
    some of them still work
    sound like PPL could be a good option for you

    Cheers

    Yeah everything I did before was always PPS (we called it Pay Per Signup, Pay Per Lead same thing I guess).

    I mean I did some Pay Per Email, but they were bad compared to PPS. PPS always ended up netting more.

    Adult is dead from what I hear. I would love to do it again. But I'm afraid I would make more money flipping burgers.

    I would say Adult niche its an evergreen niche
    i dear to say there is always goona bee horny teenageers or guys who like porn (me included of course)
    now the tricky part is how te get that traffic? where thay hang out when they are online? how can i get that traffic cheap?
    take a diferrent approach to whats aroud the web this days and you will get some leads thats for sure
    optimize, scale and repeat
    hope it helps

    Good choice on coming back to BHW. Think about doing offline services such as ORM or SEO etc. Even make your
    own products to sell for bigger profits rather than say, promoting anothers product. Wish you the best

    Biggest change you'll find is that like myself, your idea of what blackhat was is in no way what BHW is about now and 99% of BHW members think "blackhat" involves SEO and not what I assume you used to do.

    A lot of people are not going to tell you this but I just wanted to say that the adult niche is definitely not dead I could show you proof but I'm sure you believe me. I recently quit my business as an auto transporter and now I rely entirely on IM with over half of my income coming from the adult niche.
