Business Features for Adult Industry Professionals

Telecommuting

Telecommuting
One of the biggest benefits for many workers in the online adult industry is the ability to telecommute, both as a means of avoiding an often overwhelming physical commute into a central office, and as a way of living a life, and lifestyle, of one's choosing – while still making a productive livi...

E-Etiquette

E-Etiquette
E-mail is an incredibly powerful tool that I have seen misused by more professionals that I can count. I'm not talking about spam or UCE. I'm talking about your personal / business e-mail. Fortunately for people with bad e-mail habits, the public has been weaned on the worst use of e-mail I have ... More »

Virtual Velvet Ropes
The times they are a changing, and with them, our ways and means of dealing with visitors to our sites. Here's a quick glimpse into a thought process that took a decade to crystallize.

Fundamentalities

Fundamentalities
You have to admit: the adult industry puts the fun in dysfunctional. Every day there seems to be a new influx of people coming in to try their hand at making their fortune in porn. Those who have long been making money at this are sometimes stunned at how difficult it can be these days, and some eve... More »

Bad Publicity Lies Ahead

Bad Publicity Lies Ahead

Used poorly, they w... More »

Knowing When to Say "When"

Knowing When to Say "When"

We've pushed and tried, changed things around, tried different sources of traffic, and nothing helps. ... More »

Goodwill During Bad Times

Goodwill During Bad Times
I've read a lot about the iBill problem and how to resolve it. Most want to hurt iBill by manually charging back for unpaid charges. I'm partial to baseball bats, but neither will get you any goodwill from your customers, and will only make you feel good for a short period of time. No matter how ... More »

Porn Surfers Beware

Porn Surfers Beware
Years of abuse at the hands of unscrupulous webmasters have made today's savvy surfers ever more wary of clicking on, entering into, or joining anything – making profitable business for legitimate operators increasingly harder to come by. I received a message the other day from my friend Joan I... More »

Is It Really That Hard?

Is It Really That Hard?
As a regular on one specific webmaster board, and a regular lurker on many others, I get to see some odd things. I also get to see some really stupid things. Lately, it seems that there has been a rash of the same strange thing time and again. Folks, I hate to break it to you, but if you want t... More »

Finding the Right Payment Business Model

One consistency among nearly all paysite owners is that they are creatures of habit. After all, how else could someone tirelessly produce or procure similar content steadily in order to update their commercial... More »

What Payment Plan Suits Your Bottom Line
