Is there any money to be made advertsing adult sites anymore or is it too late?

    I'd be interested in hearing what everyone's thoughts are on this? I get this question sometimes and here is my opinion.

    I have been promoting dating sites and cam sites for many years now. I'm an affiliate marketer and promote other people's sites, not my own. It is not too late to get into the business but keep in mind you have to treat it like work in order to succeed. There are so many ways to advertise now and so many tools in which to do it. Social networking sites are huge these days and should be on the top of your list to start promoting on. There is a wealth of information out there on the best ways to advertise on them so I would pick one of the sites and start learning/reading as much as you can. Try to find a mentor that can give you tips along the way. A lot of the gurus out there will be more receptive to helping you if you approach them and offer to help them. Offer to do some of the trivial things (things they would normally outsource) for free in exchange for some guidance from time to time. Alot of these guys have more ideas and plans than they do time and would welcome some free help with some of their simple, time-consuming things. Heck I could keep on writing and writing here but I think I may be starting to ramble so I'll close with this.

    More money than ever.

    Adult industry is not going to shrink substantially. Sex is the oldest industry in the world (well the addage is that prostitution is - but you get what I mean)

    Adult sites will need more web advertising than ever and need to restructure what they have. The way it needs to be done will change dramatically. Having "trojan horse" sites with very little adult content that can exist unhindered by the new legislation, then using redirects/cloaking to pass potential visitors towards those sites that are behind the new "green door" that's being put up (Green Door? look it up).

    Now isn't the time to get into adult the way it's been done for the past 20 years - now is the time to realize that it's changing and be one of the first to have new ideas and adapt. IMO probably never been a better time to get involved if you can think laterally. Most of what is out there now will soon not work - but new stuff will.. Do the new stuff.

    As long as you have traffic everything works. Even selling rocks, I mean it. I remember someone selling rocks as "pets" . So stupid.

    Scitty, interesting what you say but I couldn't find anything relevant about this "green door". Would you mind expanding a little more?

    "There's an old piano and it's playing hot behind the green door
    Dunno what they're doing but they laugh a lot behind the green door"

    Also the famous early 70's porn flick "Behind the green door"

    It's about sex being "behind a green door" and it's a metaphor that some politicians are using now when asking for new legislation to move porn out of the normal search results and put up a metaphorical "green door" that normal search results won't see. It's dated, it's cheesy, but I suppose it sorta works.

    There will always be money to be made in porn. Sex sells and always will, and the market caters to a huge and diverse demographic. The industry may adapt over the years, and you must adapt with it, as Scritty says, but it will be, around forever.
