Need Business Advice

Hi, I started my cam site through webcamwiz a few weeks ago and I'm on pace to get well over 1000 unique visitors per month, but have a dismal amount of signups. Can anyone tell me why? Do I need way more traffic? Is there anything I'm doing wrong? I've only had one sign up so far, despite a decent flow of traffic to the domain.

I'm new at this and I was wondering if anyone with experience could point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

Alex

I wouldn't know where to begin as far as that goes, not a business man. Hopefully another webmaster could offer you advice on where to advertise your site. 6 pack bitches, deal with it

With the porn industry so over saturated with sites, I wouldn't necessarily trust another webmaster to steer you in the right direction. That would be inviting you to directly compete with them. I would recommend using Alexa.com to get an idea of which porn sites that relate to your material are most popular, then contacting different sites to see how much they charge to put up your ad. I can imagine that the most most popular sites will charge more, so it'll wind up a balance of what you can afford and reaching the biggest audience possible.

This is good advice Buddha. Thank you. I agree that not too many people would help me become their direct competition, but sometimes the old dogs don't mind sharing a few tricks with the young bloods. Still, I think you're right. I shouldn't bank on it. Everyone loves the pussy: http://www.skeet-skeet-skeet.com/

One more thing Carter, I advise you to stop posting in "I bet that pussy smells like" thread, it seems to be pissing some people off and it might hurt you in the long run; people can't take a joke around here, they probably get offended by stand up comedy also. 6 pack bitches, deal with it Edited on Nov 06, 2013, 08:22pm

BTW, 1000 visitors a month is not even a good hobby site. It certainly can't be considered a "decent flow of traffic".

Despite what might seem logical, most webmaster sites have more than a few who'll offer you some advice. Some will be good, some not so much. It'll be up to you to decide what advice you want to follow. Senior Administrator

Khan is a very hard act to follow on a matter of this nature.....But because I was already into this post as his appeared ...... I'm gonna throw it in anyway.

Perhaps If you can convince a respectable number of those shoppers that something or somewhere in what you're offering, just for a given time is included free -- I could be wrong but for a beginner wanting to jump-start this kind of site, juggling all his options an all, just makes sense to me, if cleverly done, should have positive sway in getting guys to reach for their wallet.

I'd think Your best bet, assuming there's a wiliness on the part of webmasters who frequent this site,, might be to indirectly appeal to them, using this forum, as you have here, to hopefully gain some of the insight you're seeking.
If that doesn't jell, you'd be surprised how much you can get by simply picking up the crumbs they're throwing around from time to time.

You might score well by also researching PU's archives. There's a wealth of information from a helpful variety logged going back there.

Lastly, one needs to have money to make money. I don't have to emphasize the important ramifications of that imperative, because by now you probably know that answer.

Further, indoctrination so far in this business should have set in giving you a feel of impending success or bigger bumps in the road ahead.

I heartedly wish you the best of luck. Edited on Nov 06, 2013, 09:03pm

Another mistake webmasters can make is hanging out on forums and getting all chummy with people to try to drum up business, makes them look desperate and is kind of unprofessional. 6 pack bitches, deal with it Edited on Nov 08, 2013, 11:34am

I for one appreciate the effort you put into posting. I see a sincere interest in porn and hanging out with like minded people. Good luck with your website and be careful who you take advice from.

Ever think of going into Law, 666?
With your fight-bite and unyielding tenacity you'd have prosecutors and opposition running for the hills.

^That or he would be accused of contempt of court and keep getting fined by the judges.

I don't know but giving a judge attitude is probably not a good idea. He or she may be easy going but I suspect most aren't. Long live the Brown Coats.

I don't think anybody likes their authority, assumed or otherwise, being compromised, Pat.

That said, in any compensation case, I would certainly like him fighting my corner!

I wasn't referring to you but to the judge. He or she might find you in contempt. Long live the Brown Coats.

Going back to the visitor count, a 1000 per month is only 33 per day.

You hear all sorts of figures thrown about but most adult webmasters seem to expect a conversion rate (ie visitors converting to customers) of anything from 1 in 1000 to 1 in 5000. With 1000 visitors per month, one sale every month or so wouldn't be too bad.

Essentially, you need to work on getting a LOT more visitors. Webmaster of StripGameCentral and A Measure of Curiosity.

Yes. Someone told me that I would need about 4-5K a day to make a living off of it.

The site is still new, so I will work on building links. Other than that, I probably shouldn't quit my day job... Everyone loves the pussy: http://www.skeet-skeet-skeet.com/

Give it time. Concentrate on building traffic. Once your visitor rate is a lot higher you can start to tune the site to maximise your conversions. 1 in 500 is still possible, but you need the right content, presented in the right way and to say all the right things to appeal to potential customers.

I'd agree with the 4-5K estimate. Obviously it depends on how much each membership costs and what your running costs are. My approach has always been to run several sites to give my turnover some security. It spreads the weekly fluctuations and some people will sign up to all of them. There are all sorts of techniques for increasing sales. Quality and reliability are key, but the personal touch can be vital too. Members feeling involved, like they are part of something, can really make a difference.

When the community here on PU is working well, it really enhances the site. When we're going through a quiet patch or some of the mainstay posters are away, the atmosphere here can change completely. The really hard thing is achieving and maintain that ambience for your members. Webmaster of StripGameCentral and A Measure of Curiosity.

Okay, Carter, here's a thought:
With the cooperation of some of the porn stars who'll benefit from your success, why not promote a drawing tossing the names of all new member's into a hat, and in ten days pull out a given number of newbies who'll be pronounced winners.
The prize?
A pair of eatable panties worn by your winners' favorite porn star, arriving one-day's special delivery fresh off her ass to his door.
this succulent treat further guarantees to having retained and maintained the star's aromatic vaginal juices, even as to the extent of one's face actually being buried into her crouch.
The winner's options are to savor two-fold his divine choices ---- either to give his heretofore deprived sexually dormant olfactory apparatus the orgasmic event it's needed ....... or, send his taste-buds into a likewise orgasmic frenzy by relishing her panty by devouring it with one of his three meals.

Of course, Mr. Carter, I'm certainly not seriously advocating that you actually do what I've written in my above post, nor do I really expect you'd actually consider it anyway .....tis only my usual behavior to add a little levity into this assumingly tense juncture I gather you're going through getting this important project up and smoothly running.

Further, for those who don't know me and maybe overall wondering in their minds this guy might be slipping off his rocker for even suggesting such a wild idea.


But From What I've really observed so far, you're getting a wealth of info from some good sources already.

Good luck
