    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.

    Just join all gay related groups on social media, don't talk about your website directly, just be friendly, like a couple things, comment a couple posts for a couple weeks.

    Then maybe make a gay related landing page and redirect them from there.

    Because it is a personalised search. Because I look at a lot of gambling related things, I always see a lot of gambling related ads. And you see gay men stuff because.............?

    Because I thought of you?:D But seriously, have no idea why, as far as I can remember it showed up in the home feed which has nothing to do with preference but then again, might have been one of those nights where I wasn't sober and I searched porn related stuff and as when you search something on BHW the results never show up chronically I might have overlooked a date.

    And I see gay men stuff because in porn gay converts really good ;)

    Anyway, totally forgot about it so anyone who is keeping this post alive are in the wrong like me for bumping old topics :D

    I damn sure can :p I'm knowledgeable because i"m a proud connoisseur of gay porn lol Just like I'm sure some of your straight friends are connoisseurs of Straight porn lol (we're human males, it's inherent in our psychology and physiology to be sexual creatures we can either suppress it and be uptight miserable and stressed or embrace and accept that portion of who we are as it is) So no, I have absolutely no problem with the fact that I could probably teach a course on how and where to source which type of gay porn being forever immortalized online in this forum next to a picture of my face thankfully I don't grapple with those insecurities, although as an outsider it's, admittedly, amusing to watch someone like you squirm... (my dark side showing) ...

    anyway -

    ..... the freaky deeky shit mentioned that was the exception (monetizeable) - ya there's a reason one would have to PAY for that kind of content - nobody in their right mind wants to create it! and 99% of people (myself included) would rather it remain safely isolated from our mainstream reservoir of porn content bc it woudl only serve to kill the mood lol...

    so once again - AAAHHHHHAAAA!!! ;-P

    Squirm? :D I've seen and done so much already not squirming about anything :D as long as it converts I have no shame to talk about anything hahaha

    I must say, I'm more like a jack of all trades but you indeed seem to be a connoisseur of the subject which I can appreciate.

    LOL I also fall into the "jack of all trades" category, however that just happens to be a subject I did a lot of extra credit in.... lol - If my career as an internet marketer would have been a college degree program, you could say I minored in it lol...
