I know some affiliates who earn thousands dollars every month from promoting adult offers. Most affiliates do not reach this area. Basically, if you have already promoted dating offers, adult offers are not hard to get conversions.
The principles of adult affiliate marketing are very simple:
- You promote the registration program or sell the product and get a commission for every sale.
- In order to get commission faster, you need to buy traffic from adult ad network. Make sure traffic costs that must be less then the commission you earn in order to turn a profit
To get started in adult affiliate marketing
1. Webspace / Hosting
If you create landing page to promote your offer and host tracking system, choosing the right hosting is very important. Usually, virtual private server (VPS) is enough to start. One thing you need to notice is that you must ask the hosting company if it allows to host the adult material. Also, you need to ask if it is friendly to install tracking script like Prosper202. In case there is technical issue, its stuffs can solve immediately.
Proper tracking is a crucial part in affiliate
marketing. You need to know which of your ads are profitable and which are losing money. You can start out with a free script like Prosper202 or get a more advanced tracker like CPVlab. Personally I prefer CPVlab due to its simplicity and split testing options but it also comes with a hefty price tag if you are just starting out.
3. Networks / Offers
Before you sign up to any network make sure you do some research about their reputation and payout terms.
Getting approved in the adult affiliate networks is easier than non-adult affiliate networks.
Most adult affiliate networks do not need phone verification. You can get their offers to promote immediately. In the future, I will introduce some good adult affiliate networks.
4. Banner & Landing Page Design
Landing page is very important part when you want to earn profit in the affiliate industry. If you have the knowledge of photoshop & HTML code, it has already been enough to create your own ads and landing pages. But you don’t have this skill, don’t worry. You can outsource it to the professional which can find from freelancer.com, odesk.com or fiverr.com
5. Budget / Traffic Source
There are a few adult ad networks which partner with some large adult sites. I highly recommends you to advertise the one which provide pop up/pop under advertising. This ad format can directly display your landing page without any click. And this is the immediately method to test your landing page and examine the data. In some time, I will also list some adult ad networks in my blog.
