    Hey everyone,

    So I started a new adult website less than 2 months ago (it's my 1st adult website).

    The idea was to catch on what I think is a growing niche, run the website as a side project and hopefully make some money from it.

    For now, I'm only looking at building genuine traffic to it. I'll look at advertising / making money when I get a larger amount of visitors.

    What I have so far:
    - The website is a "Tube" like website, specialised in a niche with sub-categories furthering the niche search
    - I take the videos from other tube sites, making sure they are relevant / quality videos. I rename some of the titles. I post new videos every day or every other day.
    - I created so far 3 "Compilation" videos for this niche and posted on big tube websites. These compilation videos have a watermark with the name of the website on it and direct visitors started to come
    - So far it brought around 600 visitors for the last 30 days

    So it's still very small. I need to find other ways to promote the website. I created a Reddit account to post images to relevant threads and then the "sauce" (preferably on my website!) but I need to wait another week or so as these threads don't allow new posters.

    I'm happy to consider any advice / guidance - please bear in mind it is a side project so for now I can only spend around 1 / 2 hours / day on it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey guys,
    So, just a quick update.
    I have spent quite a bit of time researching a looking around and I took the following actions:

    - posted relevant comments on related niche blogs and 1 comment on Quora (with links to the website). It seems to have helped the SEO and I'm starting to see a little bit of search traffic.

    - got involved in Reddit. I found some subreddit relevant to my niche and I post animated gifs there of good sex scenes (no more than one every couple of days). Then I post the "source" in the comment, linking back to the video on my website.
    This reddit thing has helped the traffic A LOT. I went from 20 / 30 visits a day to 100 / day and even 300 visits yesterday.

    I should therefore reach my 1st target of a few thousand visits / month pretty soon.

    Therefore, I started to look at advertising. I assumed that niche related premium website with exclusive content would be a good start. I started to add banner for one that offers 50% commission on membership signup (around $30 each so $15 for me if someone signs up)
    I don't expect much from it but if I manage to get a sign up or two per month it'd be a good start!

    I hear a lot about crackrevenue so I think I might give it a try... I couldn't find any figure in terns of revenue though, any idea?

    I'll keep updating as I progress! As usual any suggestion is welcome.

    Hi guys,
    So, a quick update!
    Traffic has progressed well, I now get around 10 000 visitors a month which was a milestone I wanted to reach.
    I got my first check from affiliate marketing! Ok, it was only $30 but it's a start I guess. It was around a month ago, nothing since then.
    I feel like I'm hitting a bit of a wall. With more efforts, 20k / month is possible but beyond that, I'm not sure.
    I'm also concerned about the monetization.
    If anyone has any tips please let me know! Thanks in advance :)

    Good luck with your journey.

    Tip: focus more on your website:

    - to be unique and stand out
    - get organic traffic.
    - be active on social media

    Could you start your own membership system?

    Thanks for the reply guys!
    > Boriss: I guess you are right, that's what has been working so far! I need to put even more efforts into the website
    > RichardDav: I thought about this but currently we don't have any original content so it's hard to sell a membership... Still, I'll look at options.
