    So this is it, finally I?m going to do something about starting my IM journey. I?m currently looking to start somewhat in the adult niche cause I can?t seem to figure out what I want to do with everything else. It just seems easier to dip my toes in to the adult niche and bank from it.

    But I?ve got a few questions that I need BHW?s experienced and expert IMers who have already ventured in this line for quite some time and I?d really appreciate it if you guys can share with me your tips on this.

    Questions that are on my mind: -

    1. I?ve already got a shared hosting up (by Hostgator) and I?m living in a third world country so laws about the internet stuff is pretty much in the grey area, I think? But just for more information, do I need to comply with local laws?


    2. I saw that one can actually get a tube site which they won?t need to maintain, like for example the contents would be pulled from their part so all you have to do is to just place your CPA banners/ads everywhere. Would you guys recommend me to get that? If I?m not mistaken, I think tube sites don?t require you to have hosting, right? You?d just need a domain. Correct me if I?m wrong though, I?m very new to this line.


    3. Adult video script or tube site? Are there free adult video scripts? I?m a little tight on the budget though. I?ve heard that adult video scripts would allow you to accomplish the task that I?m looking for? Content would be taken care of by their part and you?d just have to worry about pushing traffic to your site right? Again, I?m still trying to find out more about what is adult video script about.


    I?m a bit tight on my budget once again but I?m really open to receiving your best opinions and I might end up making it if it?s much more worthwhile to do it. Also, if it helps, this is actually my first adult site that I?m going to start working on.

    I?m planning to drive traffic through social media(mainly Tumblr) is this a good idea? I?m currently building social profiles so that when I pull this off, I can just begin to push traffic then.

    Please share with me your thoughts on this so that I can better decide on how I should go about starting my IM journey, whether it?d be in the adult line or not.

    Thank you!

    Question 1
    not 100% sure about local laws and compliance. That will really depend on what those local laws are.

    Question 2
    yes you can get tube sites with content hosted for you. You add banners and offers and drive traffic to it. These sites don't require hosting and are a good way to get started in the adult niche.

    Question 3
    scripts are another way to go. I've never used these so not 100% sure on costs. You might be able to find some free ones here.

    If you search on BHW for. (Adult) you will get a load of posts. There is a great one on auto blogging adult images. This method you can set up relatively cheaply. Like most things if you're tight on budget it means you've more work to do when starting out. There are also threads with guys who can add adult videos to your site for you. This will cost money obviously.

    Tumblr is a great site for adult niche and traffic as is twitter. You will need to be careful with Facebook. Any explicit adult content and you will get banned. You have to think about soft core stuff here.

    You our can also do soft videos on YouTube and similar sites. While hard core videos on other tube sites. You will drive traffic by watermarking your images and videos with your domain name. There are paid softwares for this. Although you may find free ones. There are also software a for mass uploading all the videos.

    The above is just some notes I've picked up here. My advice is to search on here for adult. Read as much as possible. You can search other places too. Get a full picture of everything required and piece together a full plan of what you would like to do

    now go through the plan and research the tools and softwares needed. And how you would do each step technically. You can look for free tools or cracked versions of paid softwares to get you started. By this stage you will have a plan and a full understanding of what's required. This will allow you to make a full informed decision.

    If you're willing to work then yes you can do adult. And you can start anything on a smaller budget. I just prefer if people are informed as to what they are doing before jumping in. you see a lot of questions here from people who have bought a software or a website and have no idea as to why. Crazy

    Anyway. Good luck. Get reading and I'm sure you'll do well

    Thank you for your thorough reply.

    Yes, I agree with you that a lot of times people are more than excited to jump in and start purchasing hosting/softwares/websites but they forgot to plan for it. I feel like I partially belong to this category, but for the most of it, I was rather more keen to sealing the great promotion/deal first, then plan later. I think it helps cut the costs in the long run anyway.

    I will definitely need more reading on this while trying to get a bigger base for my social media so when everything's ready, I should be able to just push all the traffic to my site.

    Apart from everything else, I'm just a tad worried about complying with the local laws or do I even need to comply to the local laws?

    I'm not really sure with the legal stuff so if anyone could give some pointers on this subject, I would appreciate it!

    i started my adult experience about 2 months ago and it's really interesting.

    To summarize the main lesson I learned was :

    - Either go with quantity, but the work is huge on automation, and investment can be consequent too.
    - Either go with quality, but you have to watch porn all day long.

    No matter which way you decide to go, there is money to be made, but it's way harder than some other method i've tested out their.

    It will be very hard to maintain that kind of page. The reasons are

    Most of videos are copyrighted so you are braking into it.
    Second is you know this is illegal.
    How do you find hosting for those sites ?

    There are hosts that will host adult sites no problem. Or you can find an offshore host or anonymous hosting. Offshore or anon hosting will most likely ignore any legal requests to remove the site. Make sure they do in their tos

    the legal issue will be the hosting - where it's based. If there are laws about accessing adult material from where you are you can use a VPN to disguise your IP and access any content not normally available.

    Most people don't have problems with hosting or there would be no adult content online. And that is a world in which we don't want to imagine.

    What you're looking for is a white-label tube site. Where you just provide the domain name and ads and then you're responsible for driving traffic to it.

    Yes you need to comply with local laws!

    Adult is good way to go, non adult websites with user submitted content usually ban all spammers. But in adult, you can watermark 1,000 videos and 1,000,000 pictures and literally upload it to gazzillion video streaming and image hosts. There's tons of traffic easy accessible by content spamming.

    I'll try and look for it! Thank you!

    I'm looking to dip my toes in but not too far deep yet, just to test the water and see how it goes.

    Btw what do you mean by "it's way harder than some other method I've tested out there"?

    I'm not entirely sure if you actually read my entire post.

    1. If you actually read my opening post to this thread, I stated that I was looking for a service that will host the videos and all I have to do is to just post my ads and drive traffic to that domain. That's all.

    2. Illegal? If it's worldwide illegal then I don't think porn industry would've survived. Not to mention that everyone watches it.

    3. I already stated that I have a hosting with Hostgator. Read, please. If you're not going to read the OP then why are you replying?

    Again, I don't think you actually read my OP.

    I already have a hosting with Hostgator and I've confirmed with them that they are OK with adult materials.

    Yes, I'm planning to use VPN and I'm actually already using VPN to cover my footsteps.

    Ah I see, okay I will look into it. What do you mean by "white-label"? Thanks for the info!

    I agree, you just need the right tools.

    Indeed the adult niche can put a real cramp in your style if you don't stay motivated and focused on the work, and the reward. Save that stuff for your private time.

    Adult is much harder to tap into, but is much more profitable.

    I would suggest tapping your resources in accordance to both evergreen / mainstream as well as the adult world.

    It's much harder to do both, but you can mix and match talents to overcome any obstacle you can to ensure your survival in this rigid industry.

    Yes. In the beginning it was pretty difficult but now I think I'm getting used to it. Otherwise it's not effective.


    Yes, I'm planning to do that. I don't intend to rely just on the adult world for profit.
