SO WHERE IS THE ADULT INDUSTRY GOING AT THE END OF 2017?
Dating, LiveCam and Nutra affiliate programs ought to be nice too, in the same way the affiliates working with these verticals. Also anything that has to do with LeadGen and is”compatible” with adult products, should do just fine.
The extinction continues… I’ve noticed just a few people representing production companies or conventional adult affiliate programs, that are still running paid content websites. There have been more TUBE site owners compared to paysite owners… which is fairly ironic because the Tubes cannibalize about the content from paysites.
Dating, Cams, Adult themed Nutra, Casinos… and also the developing Adult Gambling segment… these are the areas to concentrate on in the end of 2017 and probably a good part of the following year also – mature affiliates continue earning very good cash. It’s still an aggressive match, and it’s most likely going to increase again as the stress from the B2B approach keeps on rising.
TES was the very first affiliate conference I attended, and that I continue returning there ever since… been there like 5 or 6 times . This seminar started as an ADULT just event, but for the past couple of decades, the organizers tried to venture out into more regions of electronic advertising.
I’ve noticed one change however, when it comes to traffic sites… mobile impressions are currently cheaper, again due to the Carrier Billing regulations, because those supplies were in charge of very high CPM rates previously.
However, it still has the adult feel to it, with all the hot and barely dressed models walking about, and waste majority of the exhibitors are grownup companies too. Most of the affiliates which you are able to meet here are affiliates that are grownup . This ’s why I continue attending this occasion from time to time, to stay in touch with the adult industry and to observe where it’s going.
Regular TUBE or general FREE Website traffic is very hard to convert on any paysite, because the users already get it all for free on these sites… that’s why Relationship and Live Cams are the best selling products on these traffic… you Cannot capture and give a relationship or live cam experience for free
Dating is now rather dominating the adult industry for a few years now, together with Live Cams, that was another perpendicular with different companies introducing their Cam platforms. Dating firms had a substantial presence too, lots of the old-timers were all there, however, also a few newer ones such as Xcash.Com as an example, which is another operation launched from the BrokerBabe/Glize guys.
Inspired by just this one conference, I’Id say that the adult business has handed the years and it’s rising back up slowly… there were attendees , more exhibitors too… BUT there was not as affiliates.
Based on the info I’ve got, there are still 3 strategies that can sell paysites well — Overview sites, Discount sites and HEAVILY niched sites. So if any of you plan to begin some mature site, I’d consider some type combination of the aforementioned 3… Niched review website with discount supplies perhaps? Sounds like a worthy plan
The great thing here is: social networking buyers will hardly come up with better optimized campaigns compared to a seasoned and committed affiliate. People that are qualified enough, will start working on their own most likely. So I’m not very frightened of the whatsoever.
This is another trend that I discovered for the previous few decades already, the mature company is shifting more to some B2B form of collaboration , there appear to be less and less of the individual affiliates. So provide owners are looking to form in-house media purchasing groups and operate directly with the visitors sources, for example…
Monetizing the traffic is not the same narrative, it’s becoming harder today , due to the cell downswing which has been driving large area of the sector for the past couple years. We ’re waiting for the upcoming big thing… hard to say exactly what exactly it ’s gonna be… VR maybe? Doesn’t look like that for now, but hard to say exactly yet.
Thank you for reading
However, for individuals who’re keen to dip in and give the company what it needs… adult is still a very viable option to generate lot’s of revenue from the affiliate product , and it’s gonna to stay this way for quite a while.
It’so glowing for a few, not so bright to others Adult itself, as a vertical or niche, is unquestionably not moving anyplace . People just want to appear at mature information, so the visitors isn’t going to decrease, it’ll actually appear, because the worlds population is increasing too… and so is the access to high speed net.
IS THERE BRIGHT FUTURE AHEAD?
There’s one newcomer in the pool : Mature Games… not that it’d be a completely new segment, but it’s been growing lately. It’s truly one of the few niches that appear to be growing from the mobile Carrier Billing place too. This might be a great one to consider right NOW. Gambling experience is something you cannot simulate and give away on tubesso there may be some potential in this for adult affiliates.
Anyways, since the traffic is there and the owners wish to market it, business is still thriving for the various traffic networks… Exoclick is still commanding and no additional networks comes close in terms of volume.
The trend in relationship is clear, all of the platforms are shifting to Europe, even the eastern part of it, so not only EU… but also other emerging markets. This is very great news, since most of us know the TIER-1 GEOs are pretty difficult to use, especially for the new guys. Whitelabel dating websites are still running powerful also, I’ve seen several firms advertising this concept… HubPeople for instance.
Ironically, this ’s I’d amount this experience up… no more Significant changes Happening, but for the mobile reduction maybe… but no more doomsday at sight either The Significant players are still in the match, stable verticals are still generating tens of thousands of dollars and there is still a sizable part of the pie around for grabs
This has been the trend as like 2008 or soI’m pretty certain nothing’so gonna block the tubes today . The paysite marketplace has consolidated sincethere are a few powerful players staying in the business, together with a still-decent amount of independent productions that are smaller. I’Id say that the market may be stabilized by now, so the paysite version is here to remain with us… the viewer remains there. Particularly for those who experiment with new technologies — 4K, virtual reality…
It’s definitely visible the regulations have hit on the Carrier Billing Mature offers pretty hard. Large part of these transferred into the mainstream side of things, in which the regulations ain’t hefty yet. Or let’s just say, mainstream provides can operate in more GEOs than mature products — consider the Arab world or some big Asian countries.
I’ve noticed the conventional, cover-all Affiliate Networks, trying to get some more business going with the mature crowd… firms like Leadbit, Terra Leads, Advidi, Adcombo… just to mention a few, those weren’t present on those shows in the past, but increasingly more and more of these display at adult events every year.
For the last few years, the whole adult traffic section was dominated with MOBILE… that it was anywhere, cellular traffic programs, cellular affiliate networks… cellular this, mobile that… Plus this has shifted this past season. No more huge booths from the market leaders, they been present still, however on a significantly bigger scale.
