How to monetize my busy niche adult site? (I'm clueless)

    Hi everyone,

    I have a pretty busy forum containing user-submitted torrents and direct downloads (DDL) of Japanese porn. Alexa traffic rank is around 2,000 (global) and 200 (Japan).

    The typical thread contains torrent/DDL links to a single DVD title. There are a few global ads (shown on all pages) but they're barely covering hosting costs. I really don't think I'm doing this right, maybe it would be better to have targeted ads in each thread...

    That's just a guess, though. I'm really lost in the woods when it comes to advertising and affiliate stuff. And there's such a plethora of information on BHW that I don't know where to start.

    My question is: how would you approach monetizing this type of website? Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Even generic advice would be helpful. Thanks for reading so far :)

    Hi, if you don't mind, I'd rather stay anonymous for now. Maybe this will help:

    Imagine a vBulletin forum like this one, but each subforum is dedicated to a category/fetish of asian pornography. When you go into a subforum, every thread will be dedicated to a specific DVD (including the DVD code, performer's name, cover image, and torrent/ddl links.)

    See if you can offer the physical product via affiliate link to a porn shop?

    Alt.com has fetish/bondage dating - as I recall they have a dump-load of advertising tools, photo galleries and banners to pick from etc - and (I think) you can tailor them by ethnicity

    So in theory you could have fetish dating ads showing Asian women in bondage - I bet you would make some cheddar off of those. I know that extreme rope bondage stuff is a big niche in Japanese porn.

    Hi Chronos, I thought about that. Since the DVD is being offered for free right there in the thread, maybe offering a related physical product via affiliate link would be a better idea.

    The fact that Japanese visitors make up 60% of my audience is a logistical problem for me (I'm located in the U.S.) These Japanese users have no desire for the typical "asian" porn peddled on western sites. They want Japanese titles that are hard to get here. I'll have to find some way to affiliate with a Japanese company such as amazon.co.jp. I've heard that they only pay in cash to Japanese residents though... everyone else gets gift certificates. Sucks if that's true. I have lots of research to do and language barriers to jump :eek:

    Hi catnipking, that's a good suggestion. I'll look into them for my western visitors. Tailoring by ethnicity is a must-have in my case.

    warez is extremely hard to monetize - serious advertisers do not accept warez sites, so you ll have shitty advertisers

    free porn is extremely hard to monetize - no surprise there, even for low amounts, people are afraid of getting out their credit cards due to over charging scam or shame to be associated with porn - appears on their credit card bill

    asina porn is very hard to monetize - i know some adult websites that simply block asian traffic at all, cause they are not able to monetize them, and do not want to waste bandwidth on them - although that s video websites, and bandwidth for that is pretty expensive, normal forum like you have, low charge.

    Now you combine those 3 elements --> you'll have a hell of a hard time trying to make money.

    I think the only way to make money out of such websites (do not bother selling physical products, people who watch porn are not going to order a dildo of the internet) is to launch an auxiliary service that has chances to make money and keep that business model virtually free..

    Like for instance.. file hosting websites.. rapidshare..and etc... you upload porn to rapidshare.. they are forced to pay for premium rapidshare account , while the free porn downloading is basically free. Virtually all file sharing websites got big encouranging warez.

    Or if you put torrents.. try to open a torrent website/ client.. with premium accounts..so that you give the porn for free.. but the links are to your torrent website/client..

    This is the way to monetize such websites if you want to make cash.. but it's pretty complicated..

    If i were you i would try cashinpills.com. Guys who watch porn always will buy penis enlargement and potency pills. Especially asians. You can make banner ads, or write reviews about the pills and make them sticky on your forum etc.

    Try to use some content locker. Users will have to for example download some free game to get access to your porn.
    I get idea of 2 ways of how you can do it.
    1. Lock link to torrent download with content locker of some CPA network which has Japanese offers.
    2. Lock zip file which contains porn and give password in exchange of filling some email submit offer.

    Hope I helped.

    Use the Wikipedia fundraising technique and ask your users for support. Make a Jimmy Wales style pitch and collect donations...something like:

    "DEAR ASIANPORNFIENDS: We'll get right to it. To protect our independence we will never run ads about penis pills or dating sites and we rely on donations from pervs like you. If everyone of you who was reading this took a 2 minute break from wanking and donated $5 we will be able to continue operating and I could buy a new Porsche. That's right for less than the price of a cup of saki you can help us to help you by keeping our website alive!"
