How To Become An Amateur Porn Producer

StudioMake Money Producing and Selling Amateur Porn

If you’ve ever wondered how to get started in the adult industry, starting to produce and sell your own homemade porn is a great way to start. There’s tons of money in the adult industry, and the money is quickly transitioning from professional studios to amateur performers. This trend is only going to continue for a long time to come.

Anyone can get started free of charge. Doesn’t matter if you’re producing solo content of yourself, performing with a partner or selling content featuring other models. Here’s all the information you’ll need to start your career in amateur porn.

 

Anyone Can Make Money Producing Homemade Porn

It doesn’t matter what your gender or orientation is. There’s sites that accept anyone. That means you can get started as a solo male, female or transgender model. There’s sites that accept straight couples, gay couples and entire groups of performers. You can even create a studio account and sell content from a wide range of models. The only real requirement is that all performers are over the age of eighteen.

 

What’s Needed To Get Started

There’s a good chance that you’ve already got everything you need to get started. If not, it’s not that expensive to acquire everything needed. The higher quality the equipment, the more money your content will generate. That doesn’t mean you can’t get started with something cheaper and upgrade later, but it’s something to consider. Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

Digital Copy Of Photo ID – This is for registering with all the sites. All sites for selling any kind of adult content or services must verify that all performers are over the age of eighteen. This is mandated by federal regulation and something all websites and publications must be compliant with. Your personal information and the personal information of anyone in your content is always kept private and secure.

Adult Content To Sell – If you’ve already got the content, you’re ahead of the game. If not, you’ll have to produce it. What kind of content you produce and how you go about producing it is completely up to you. It’s suggested that you try producing a wide range of content to appeal to different niches and fetishes. There’s also a strategy to focusing on dominating individual fetishes to build up a huge following of people into that particular niche content.

Camera – The higher quality the camera the better. You’ll also want to get all the accessories, such as the tripod. This will make it easier to setup the shots, especially for solo content. If you don’t have a production area with good lighting, you’ll want to get a lighting setup. This can be built very inexpensively. There are performers that get started with nothing more than a webcam or smartphone. Although it’s suggested to get something higher in quality, if you’re bootstrapped this can work to get started.

Lingerie and Outfits – It’s always good to have a large selection of lingerie and sexy outfits. If you’re producing cosplay content, this is even more important, obviously. The larger selection you’ve got, the more you can change things up between clips and scenes. Even if the clothes are going to be off for the majority of the scenes, it’s still a very important thing. If you don’t have a huge collection of outfits, this is something that can be acquired over time.

Toys and Props – It’s also good to have a large collection of toys. This adds variety to the different scenes and different toys can be used in different ways. If there’s any other props or items that are going to be featured in your content, you’ll have to acquire them as well. For example, if you’re producing food fetish content, you’ll obviously need the food for the performance. The more stuff you’ve got that can be used in a performance, the wider variety of content you can produce.

Computer – You’ll need a computer for uploading the content for sale. You’ll also want to use the computer for editing the content. You can upload the raw uncut footage for sale, but if you clean it up and make it look as professional as possible, it’ll earn you more money. Obviously the better editing software you got the better, but something basic will work for simple cutting and splicing of scenes. You’ll also need an internet connection to upload the content for sale.

Place To Perform – You’ll need a place to produce the content. The exact requirement of what this space needs to accomplish depends on what type of content you’re planning to produce. For example, you obviously can’t produce shower content without a shower. How you setup this area will also depend on what type of content  you’re planning to produce. Also consider outside space and using multiple areas to change up the environment of the scenes you produce.

 

Sites For Selling Your Amateur Porn

Once you’ve got everything you need and the content ready to sell, it’s time to register for some adult marketplace sites. There’s tons of sites for selling adult video and photo content. These sites handle all the payment processing, transactions and delivery of the content. They work on a revenue-share model to cover the costs and make a profit themselves. These sites also generate a lot of traffic which will generate sales for you and your content. I highly recommend picking several sites to start selling on. That way you reach the audiences on all the different sites instead of just one. This will result in more sales in the long run.

Accepting Custom Video Content Requests

In addition to producing and uploading your own content, it’s possible to get paid from fulfilling custom content requests. There are sites that allow customers to post what kind of content they’re looking for. You can reach out to them and accept their bids. Custom content requests generate more money than a normal video would, as it’s tailored to the customers specifications. Once the custom content request has been fulfilled, the finished product can be uploaded and sold with the rest of your content.

Selling The Content To Producers For Redistribution

In addition to selling content to individual customers, it’s also possible to sell the rights to redistribute your content to porn sites, DVD producers and other businesses within the adult industry. This requires a little bit more paperwork and documentation than selling through a network. You’ll get more money from each sale, but you won’t make any money from the sales of the business that purchases the rights to your content. Sometimes it’s best to keep the rights so that way you’re not competing with your own content.

Creating A Subscription-Based Membership Paysite

In addition to selling individual scenes, it’s possible to create your very own membership paysites. Charge people to subscribe to access all of your content. You’ll create a residual income from the monthly rebills, creating a residual income. It also gives your customers the option of purchasing individual scenes or subscribing to all your content. This is useful for for upselling and cross-selling, as different customers will be interested in going either route. It’s suggested to have a good amount of content before starting up a membership site. There’s tools to help you build your site free of charge and handle all the technical aspects of running it.

Creating A Studio Account and Hiring Models

If you’re going to be featuring different performers in your content, the best route is probably to create a studio account. With a studio account, you’ll be able to register models under you. You’ll get paid for all the sales, and you’re responsible for paying out your models. Most of the same sites that allow individual models also allow studios, but some sites don’t. Studios generally take out a studio fee, but provide services that justify the expense.
