    Hi!

    It's my first post here!

    I'm from Southern Europe and I'm building a new original gay porn membership site.
    I've already made a dozen videos (of better quality than amateur but still far from the production values of professional studios).

    The guys are guy next door type, macho/rough type, with natural body hair, in their early twenties to early thirties, definitely hot guys, most consider themselves bisexual, a few consider themselves straight or only did it for the money. Some videos have anal sex, some just blowjobs and the rest masturbation only. I believe there's still a market for this type of content (I'm gay myself and I'm not into the overproduced fake porn from San Fernando Valley).

    It's now the time to start the website and update it with two new videos every week.

    The problem is I'm a noob in building websites, SEO, affiliates, etc. I've created a website using joomla in the past and that it! Hardly qualifies me to be an expert :D

    I've almost made my final decision on what hosting provider I'm going to settle with (but feel free to opinionate)
    Thinking about using wordpress (far simpler CMS than joomla): do you think it's secure enough for a membership site?
    And finally: how to advertise it? juicyads, google adwords (it only allows certain adult keywords, only in certain countries, etc.)?
    What about expected revenue? I've spent quite a bit paying my models, in equipment, etc. (circa 3500 ?). I will also need to spend around 700? to 1000? every month to pay for modelling. I was thinking about charging members less in the beginning (because the site is still a bit short on content): around 5? per month.

    Your tips would be very welcome. And your input on different types of adult promotion, your own experience, etc.
    Also, if you think you could help me monetize my site I would gladly share some revenue with you.

    I'd suggest you read a few threads on the forum related to the difficulty of "paid" porn sites. I'm guessing your difficulties here will be no different. With so much free content, you'll have to have some really unique content on offer.

    Check out Traffic Junky, etc. Twitter and Sex.com for self-promo. You can try Tumblr but they're dropping the ban hammer pretty hard these days.

    Good Luck with your project.
