Tips For Selling Homemade / Amateur Porn

StudioTips For Making More Money Selling Porn

There is a lot of money that can be made recording and selling your own homemade porn. Best of all, there’s networks out there that will take care of all the sales and fulfillment of your adult pics and videos. All you have to do is produce and upload the content. The money will start piling up and since it’s all happening in the background, it creates a residual income stream! Here’s some tips for making more money when selling your homemade porn.

 

Better Equipment = Better Profits

The better the equipment, you’re using the better the quality of the photos or videos that you produce. This will in turn lead to more profits. This doesn’t mean you can’t get into the industry without having top of the line cameras. If you’re only working with your iPhone camera, that’s enough to get your feet wet and start making some bucks. Even so, consider slowly ramping up the quality of your filming equipment. If you’re really savvy about it, create a wishlist and place better equipment on your wishlist. Someone could even purchase it for you!

 

Image / Video Thumbnails Are *VERY* Important

When customers are scanning through a site, looking for content to view and purchase, they’re scrolling through a grid of thumbnails and titles. Having a good title is also important, but it’s not going to be as eye catching as the thumbnail image. Make sure that the you’ve got the perfect thumbnail for each piece of content you upload. It’s got to be sexy and it’s got to give an idea of what the video is about. Great thumbnails will drastically increase the clickthrough rate to your content and profile. If the network accepts GIFs, consider creating and using one of those instead.

This is also true for your profile picture. Pretty much every network for selling amatuer porn has some kind of a model / studio page. These pages will display the model or studio thumbnail image (avatar). You want to look as sexy as possible.¬†Unless you have the most amazing ass or tits on the face of the planet (and by best, I mean best), it’s usually best to show your face. In fact, even if you’ve got the best ass or tits on the planet, it’s still probably best to show your face. Make sure you’re smiling and look your best.

 

Sell Your Amateur Porn On Multiple Networks

Think about it for a second. The most time intensive part is planning and producing the content is the most time-consuming part of the entire operation. Uploading it is easy. So it’s very easy to take and upload the content across as many sites as possible. Especially if you’ve mastered the art of copy/paste. If you register and sell your content on multiple sites, it’s an easy way to create new revenue streams and reach a broader audience.

Learn Your Network’s Search Ranking Factors

All networks for selling adult content have ranking factors that decide which content and models get featured. This is going to vary from network to network. Some algorithms are simple, such as the models particular “score” and the keywords in the content title, description and tags. Some look at number of sales, upload recency and frequency, how many profile fields are filled out, and so on.

Sometimes this information is included in your networks FAQ page. Sometimes an email to support will get you some answers. Sometimes it takes good ol’ trial and error. Play around with the search results and experiment until you figure out how to rank higher within your network’s internal search.

 

Marketing Your Content For Sale

The networks that you are selling your content on do a lot to drive traffic to their websites. This can lead to enough natural traffic to make some really good money. Even with that natural traffic, you’ll get more money if you’re able to do some of your own marketing as well. There’s plenty of ways to market your content online. Social media is a great place to start. Social media is free and most people at least have experience with either Facebook or Twitter. If you can learn those two networks, you can learn just about any social network.

Building a website and promoting your adult content through blogging is also insanely important. Both of these are important for search engine optimization. It’s easier to rank a website than it is to rank a profile page on an adult network. Using the blog to promote all the content you have for sell is a great way to gain search engine traffic. This traffic will drive sales.

 

Learn Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is where you get paid to refer traffic to a site or network. When registering for an affiliate program, you’re given a special tracking link. Anyone that clicks on your link and registers for the network will earn you a commission. Just about every camming site or other adult network has an affiliate program. Most offer either revenue-sharing on all purchases or a commission when a member registers and makes their first purchase.

It’s important to use your affiliate links when promoting your network and jobs. That way you can make an extra commission on-top of a sale. The cool thing about affiliate marketing is that you make money even if they don’t spend it on you! Someone could click on your affiliate link, register, purchase a completely different model’s job and you’ll still get paid!
