Hello all, Thank you for looking at the thread, as in the subject, I am looking for someone to sponsor for a warez business for which I have a great plan. You will require somewhere around $1.5k to $2k to sponsor for me. I will lay out the plan in detailed in here. So, this is going to be porn. Yes, I have researched enough and I do know that porn is not as old times, But trust me this one can still make a lot of money. So, this will be a pornhub style tube site with premium content (quality porn dvds) all sorted in a way like in the big players whom I don't want to mention right now. I have figured out the easiest way to add content to the site. And I can compile a huge collection (over 5000) full length movies (about 3 TB) of porn in just 15 days. With that being said, let me tell you more about what I have learnt. To be honest, I have spent over $2.5k in the previous month on researching this, trying this and failing at this. So, why am I now looking for sponsors for just $2k when I have already spent $2.5k on this? Because, I had and have huge credit cards debts which I thought I can pay once this adult site makes me the money, But, I was only able to learn the way and gain the experience required to make this thing a success and the perfect and exact way to do this. So, yea, The site will be open to all, only a few full length scenes will be available for free members and they will be able to view the trailers of all the other full length movies and the pic collection. If they want to access the full website, they pay a monthly fee of $9.95(for the time being, I will place it there). Once they pay, they will be able to stream the full movie online (like in any big porn website), they will be able to download the movie online(like in any big porn website), and everything else. I have almost learnt the mentality of the average porn surfer's mindset and I personally think that the best way to do this is to just copy the big player's user interface. So, the plan is to hire a dedicated server offshore (ecatel - package #4). Get the necessary hardware upgrades (RAM, Hard disks). I am a web developer and can take care of all the web development tasks associated with the startup and the linux administration. Infact I have already started this up and maybe 15 more days of work is missing (programming wise) and 2 months of work is missing (creating keyword specific adult blogs and other marketing things). So, once the server is hired, the script will be setup there. All domains / hosting will be registered anonymously so no one will ever have a problem. I have a perfect idea about how to accept payments and how to get the payments out and to our hands, you will be impressed by the way it will work, But I want you to contact me via PM if you want to know more about it. So, once everything is setup, I have a few hard core porn surfer friends who can actually test the site and let us know if there needs to be any improvements with regards to the user interface. Also, as we are hosted offshore(netherlands) we don't need to worry about DMCAs as ecatel doesn't care about it, also, Porn companies can't really send a DMCA legally, they just fake a DMCA by using the services of companies like http://removeyourcontent.com . So, how do you monetize this? The first time I tried this, the site was up for just 15 days (it had bad user interface, not easily navigable, 2500 vids collection, no full movie streaming option) , But I was able to get (to be honest) 12 members by advertising in just one forum. I am sure that blogging and mass forum marketing + PM blasting can take this to a great height. So, In what stage is it right now? I had already set most things up. Now, we have to improve the site user interface and make some blogs and promote them so we can drive the blog traffic to the main site by using a banner. So, How much should I invest in this? Like I had mentioned already, you need to invest somewhere around $1.5k to $2k in the following 2 months, And after that, I am sure the site can fund itself. So, what do you guarantee as returns? Ok, the site will be capped at 500 members, ($5k per month), so once we get to that target, we close the site for members only (we can open again if someone cancels and then wait for it to get to 500). And this (500 members) I assume can be got in about 5 months. So, you can expect good returns in about 5 months from now, We can work out a share % which is fair for both of us. So, how do I know you are good for the money? You will be provided access to the payments processor account and the main email will always be in your control, so you can always reset the password of the main email. But still, there are many more ways for you to feel secure which I can let you know if you contact me via PM. And what after the 500 members? If the site works fine and we think there is still a huge potential, we can make a similar website and try to cap it at 500 and make another replica and move on. Who will update the site? I can take care of everything but the money as I am totally broke right now. Why don't you wait for a month and get another $2.5k and invest? Because, I am half way there and the server bill is now due and I don't want my $2.5 k to go waste. Also, I want to concentrate on my next month's credit card settlement as it's running in my sub conscious mind. So, why cap the site at 500 members? Just so we don't have the risk of running into any issues with DMCAs which will save a lot of time and we will have a steady source of Income. So yea, I have tried to include most things, But if I missed something and you are interested, Please contact me via PM. I am waiting for someone to sponsor asap as the server might be erased any time. Btw, the server bill at the moment is 190 EUR per month. EDIT : There is one more guy involved. It's the three of us.
