    This might seem kind of weird, but hell i dont think i am the only one.
    Have you guys ever made a site that has women as your target group, and only women.
    Right now were i stand i have a solid business plan, and have done a market research for my niche and there is a good business opportunity , the problem is i do not know if i can keep making " girly content " every freaking day.

    Let me know your thoughts on the topic.

    Does it matter? Do you think the people who run porn sites also happen to be pornstars themselves?

    Yes, I've built websites like that in the past and it's never been an issue for me.

    If you're building the websites with an emphasis on marketing, I always find asking that asking my clients about the typical behaviour of their own clients and customers helps me put together a buyer persona that I can use to tailor the website to appeal and attract people to the website.

    Creating" girly content" as you put it isn't that bad, but if you really can't stand it then perhaps you should consider outsourcing some of it.

    Well, that's a good point.. It's just the tone of voice i am thinking about. Writing to a girl audience as a man.

    Why do you think Women require "girly content"?

    The tone of voice, needs to hit the target group.
    Let us say you and i were to trade a product, you would sell different to me if i were a girl if i were a man.

    The fact that you used the term "girly content" leads me to believe you should leave this idea alone.

    Look, dude, I'm a female. And I'm trying to be nice to you. But "girly content"? Seriously?

    What, exactly, does that entail? Please, enlighten me.

    I'm sure some would be bored. But I am a woman and when the opportunity to bank with boyish stuff comes in, I'm also in. Needs lots of research probably, but hard work pays off.

    Yes I would use different techniques to market to different genders but "girly content" sounds condescending and would have the opposite effect of your desired intention.
    If you have problems finding a tone then hire a Female Copywriter/Content Provider.

    I would say for some audiences or niches "girly content" could be an accurate descriptor. No need to get all bent out of shape about it. I know women that describe themselves as "girly girls" or something similar. My wife is not one of those women but she has friends that are all into pink, frilly, cute, adorable type things. That's my semi-worthless opinion anyhow.

    And there are men who are into the same thing. Is it still girly content just because it's pink, frilly, cute and adorable? Wanna explain that to every middle aged man who watches My Little Pony religiously?

    I'm into action movies, dark humor, bbq and video games. Are these "manly" things?

    Fucking hell, I am not trying to be combative. But every woman isn't into being a prissy little miss, and every guy isn't into being a macho jackass.

    So again, I ask, wtf is "girly content"?

    No I do agree, I know women like that too but I think OP needs to do further research and define his demographic, because if he tries to market "girly content" to the whole of the female gender then it will backfire on him.

    To sum up the " girly content " I will be selling a lot of gear that is made really girlish, an example is a pink backpack with small roses hanging from the zipper. So yes the content needs to be girly.
    But yes was thinking about outsourcing a write for the content. Thought it would be fun to see if any 1 else was/has been in the same shoes as me.

    It was not my intention to offend women as a whole with my comment " girly content ", or you for that matter. As written above i do really need " girly content " and i need a hell'a lot of it.

    No I am sure you didn't mean to offend anybody, but that's why we were trying to get you to see how some people could take it.
    If you had started your campaign you might have found that some of the people you will be marketing to would take offence.

    Definitely outsource the content writing, but remember content aimed at girls/women isn't necessarily "girly content".

    To answer your question, yes, it is worth it. If done correctly.
