    What I'm about to write about may seem a bit weird but it is a genuine opportunity for me to make a large amount of money pretty quickly so I'd really appreciate it if you could read the post and share any thoughts about this with me.

    A few years ago when I was just starting out in the world of IM I came up with an idea to create a porn website but it wasn't just any normal porn. In the UK there are phonesex channels. Basically a hot woman will get in various positions while in her lingerie or whilst being completely nude (although its only tease, no genitalia is ever shown). Different sets are used to play on men's fantasies, for example there is a shower set and an office set ect.

    Anyway to my knowledge there are only two or three websites on the internet that record and post videos of these phonesex channels. One of these sites has 59,000 registered members and the other has 152,000 registered members. Both sites get thousands of visitors a day. These websites are forums and registration is free, each channel has its own section and each woman on that channel has their own thread. I managed to find some statistics posted by one of the people who uploads videos to the site, each of his videos get between 5000-10,000 downloads.

    Now when I had the idea to start my own website like the two examples I have given I didn't really know how I could monetize the site as I was an IM newbie (I still am in many ways). However I knew it could be popular and attract plenty of visitors if I had some good videos from the channels so I set about building a collection.

    (Just to note, the channels do not mind people recording and uploading videos of their channels. In fact they encourage it as it is good publicity. Some of the channel owners are even members of one of the sites I mentioned above.)

    Anyway, when I had built a collection of roughly 200 of the best shows on the channels I felt I was ready to start constructing a website and putting a plan together regarding how to monetize the videos. However it was time for me to start college and I didn't realize quite how much of my time college would consume. I lost focus and didn't really do much entrepreneurial work at all for the next two years apart from a little selling on ebay and writing a book in my spare time.

    I'm about to buy a new computer and I was making a list of things that I want to transfer to it and things I don't mind deleting when I came across the videos and remembered the idea. I visited the two sites I mentioned above out of curiosity and saw that the standard of the shows has gone dramatically downhill. Many members of the sites complain the channels shows are too boring and tame nowadays and yet the sites still get so many visitors each day, its like a drug to these people.

    I also discovered that most of the videos from the 2008 - 2012 period have been permanently lost as they where uploaded mainly with megaupload and that obviously got shut down. All of my 200 or so videos are from this so called "golden era" and I really think that now is the perfect time to revisit this idea as my collection is now extremely rare and the shows are so poor nowadays in comparison.

    I've finished college now and my job at opta is only at the weekend so I have plenty of time on my hands.

    My basic idea is to create a similar forum style site and upload my video collection to that site. Then monetize the files using pay per downloads. Because there is such high demand for these rare videos a lot of people are not going to hesitate if they have to fill in a survey before they get to download the video.

    Now this is just an estimate but I feel that because these videos get between 5000-10,000 downloads each and my collection is very rare that at the very least 100 people per file are going to be willing to fill in the survey to get the video. So that's 100 downloads. Now if I can get 1 dollar per download then that's 100 dollars per video at the very least (I'm being very conservative with my estimations). I have 200 or so of these videos so I feel a lot of money could be made if this is done right.

    I have a few things I need to work out first and that's where I was hoping to get some advice from this brilliant site and its many knowledgeable members.

    Now from the bit of research I have done on PPD it appears that most companies do not allow adult material. Do any of you guys think my videos would be allowed as they are classed as soft-core porn with only the breasts being exposed? If like I fear the answer is no to that question then do any of you guys know some PPD sites that do allow adult content?

    Obviously another major necessity is that whatever PPD company I choose needs to be trustworthy and stable. A lot of PPD companies seem to go out of business and obviously if that happens I'm not likely to get payed. Likewise the internet can be a dark place and there are scammers out there who will happily take your cash or services and run as I have unfortunately found out in the past so whoever I choose has to be trustworthy.

    Bearing in mind thousands of dollars could be made the company also needs to be big enough to be able to have the money to pay me.

    Anyway, that's the idea I think would be most profitable right now but if any of you guys have some other suggestions then I'm open to hearing them. I'd even be willing to split any profits if someone suggested a really good idea and helped me implement it.

    Anyway, if you have read this far then I thank you for reading my ramblings. I'm sorry if there are any grammatical errors but its 02:00 where I am. I know this may seem weird but there is a genuine large demand for this rare content I have, I just need to figure out how to monetize it.

    If you have any thoughts, ideas or suggestions then I'd love to hear from you.

    Thanks for your time guys.

    I am sure most PPD sites would not allow you to stay on their network promoting such websites, do you have any ideas how you are going to be driving traffic?

    Regardless of monetization, I'm curious about the most important aspect of your plan: driving traffic. As the obvious course of action, if you plan to try to siphon traffic from those other two sites that record and post these types of videos, it seems inevitable that downloaders would start uploading and sharing them among the other members of these sites for free. That would severely cut into any profit estimates especially since these are niche communities.

    All things considered, it might be a challenge to monetize it effectively. Might be better off finding an external video host (to avoid the costs of hosting 200 streaming vids) and embedding the vids on your site and using an adult ad network to monetize. This way you can capitalize on all possible views (and repeat views) since you are offering a valuable, hassle-free service, which dissuades people from going out of their way to download and reupload elsewhere. You could even try some adult pay per sale offers alongside the adult ad network, but don't dilute your advertising with excessive ads.

    Furthermore, you could try leaking the vids slowly. Ten a week or something, that way you keep people coming back and checking, and if you add a forum to the site, the more times a person a visits the more likely they are to join your site, which could give you a permanent community with which to earn.

    Thanks for your replies guys. Really I have no use for these videos so I was just trying to find some purpose for them or I was going to delete them.

    Enryu, your idea sounds interesting. I'm going to do a little more research into it so thanks for that.

    I still feel there is some money to be made with the vids but if it doesn't workout then I haven't lost much. There's plenty more other methods I could try.
