    I remember just a year ago i used to convert 1:50 on tube traffic. Now that tubes have spread the same exact traffic does 1:3000 at best. Yea thats right a 600% drop in conversion rates. And its not just me, lots and lots of people in the biz are experiencing the same thing. TGP owners, free site owners, bloggers etc etc.

    Was wondering if anyone here was still banking with adult. I've been a full time adult webmaster for over 3 years now. Never thought I would move to mainstream, but damn shit sucks...

    adult-porn will die as more and more people know hot to find free porn online.
    The webcam still work however, since they can not get webcam girls for free.

    I agree with Nick Flame..
    So a possible strategy maybe.. to market the " ugly " part of your webcam girls as " free " and for the beautys, one needs a membership ( bronze/silver/gold etc.. ) ... a JV with a local pimp is also an option.. so webcam with liveaction ! One need to think out of the box. Just my 2cts....

    Nice Eagle, make those ugly webcam girls feel real good about themselves.

    "So what do you do?"

    "Well, I'm so ugly, people don't even have to pay for my nude webcam feed"

    adult marketing is getting supercompetitive (and was for the last ~5 years) and to earn something, you MUST think out of a box, have some genius ideas and so on... that's not for me..

    In adult it's 10 times easier to get traffic to your site/blog/gallery/etc but it is also harder to convert..

    I never understood why anyone would pay a cent for porn; considering the massive quantity you can get for free from thumbnail sites.

    Believe it or not but I don't believe affiliate programs shave at all. I've worked with several major ones as an affiliate manager. If we were shaving I would have known about it. It's more profitable to add joins then to take them away. The truth is its the conversions that suck, nothing to do with any dubious affiliate program practices.

    At the moment, I still think that adult pays out much better than mainstream.
    Of course, this could be due to the fact that I have years of experience in adult and weeks in mainstream... but to me, this is how it looks like :)

    is it harsh??????? i signed up to be a webmaster affiliate for a leading adult website just a few hours ago and:

    1. i have NO WEBSITE... (rather; the one i put as mine consists of 1 page)
    hxxp://w3.freewebs.com/twocuties22/index.htm

    2. somehow i made $70.00 bucks tonight!!! literally 3 hours after signing up!!

    i hope i didnt just jynx myself by talking about my success, but i think im on to something. i got my two sales through chatting and convincing people to sign up! it was really easy too!

    hxxp://w3.bangbrosonline.com

    you can sign up at the link above. and actually i do have a trick up my sleeve which makes people really wanna sign up if they have the extra 5bucks burning in their bank accounts.

    Talking to people? What did you convince a friend youd give him $10 if he signed up for a $2 trial and canceled?

    How would you talk to a surfer?
