How To Monetize Your Adult Video Website

Generating revenue from your adult video website is key to your success as an adult webmaster. There are a few ways in which you can do this: embedded videos, ad networks and CPA affiliate marketing.

Embedded Videos

Make Money From Embedded Video Players

The Tube Ace WordPress plugin makes importing thousands or even millions of embedded adult videos to your WordPress powered site incredibly simple. You can even set the Tube Ace plugin to automatically import new adult videos every hour. If you are not already aware, hosting video is very expensive and many businesses have lost a lot of money offering free porn videos. By using embedded videos, you have no need to worry about the bandwidth costs incurred from hosting your own videos.

HubTraffic is the affiliate program for the biggest tube sites on the web. Their porn tube site portfolio consists of Pornhub, RedTube, Tube8, YouPorn, Xtube, Spankwire. HubTraffic pays you commission for using their embedded videos on your porn video website. This is a win/win. You get valuable free content with millions of porn videos for your site while generating money. HubTraffic has affiliates earning over $50,000 per month!

Your earnings depend on the quality and amount of traffic you send to our Tube sites. HubTraffic pays based on device and geo quality of your traffic, based on the table listed below. All other countries and devices CPC are paid $0.25 per thousand.

These advertising networks pay you by how many impressions (views) for each ad or when a user clicks on the ad PPC (Pay-Per-Click). Adding these ads to your WordPress porn site is simple by using your WordPress theme’s widget areas.

Since Google AdSense is not an option for porn websites, there are many alternatives for your adult websites.

Here are a few of those adult ad networks.

Affiliate Marketing & CPA Networks

Affiliate Marketing and CPA Networks

Another method of making ad revenue from your adult website is by utilizing CPA or Cost-Per-Action affiliate programs. This means you get a commission for each lead (when a user performs an action such as signing up) or sale (when a user purchases a product or service) generated by the traffic you send. You can promote these programs by using affiliate links or banners on your website to send traffic. Since the proliferation of free porn videos, conversion rates for paid subscription video site memberships have dramatically decreased over the past few years. There are a few niches which still convert because of their imperviousness to piracy. The niches include adult webcams, adult dating and adult games.

CrakRevenue – is the premier adult affiliate network. They manage the affiliate programs for over 1200 offers such as membership pay sites, dating sites, webcams, VOD (video-on-demand), gaming and more all which pay by lead and sale.
