Adult Website Design and layout

Deciding on a website design and layout could be the single most important decision you make for your new online presence. We could go on for hours about designing a successful website, and we will expand on this knowledge in our articles section. For now. lets touch on some important things to keep in mind:


Typically, all adult websites have the same look and feel. It is certainly ok to think outside of the box and design a website that will be pleasing to the eyes and create a comfortable user experience. You’ll want to choose a layout that supports your niche, with colors to support it. These principles hold true, regardless of whether you’re designing it yourself, paying someone to do it, using a template, or using a turnkey solution from a content provider.


When someone visits your website, they will read your page in an F shaped pattern. This is why you will see navigation on the left and/or the top of many websites. You’ll want to add links to free galleries, promotions, free trials, etc in this area, with the meat of your content in the middle. A great guide, is look at other sites for inspiration.


Something that is overlooked a lot is what color theme your website will have. If you’re making a website called, then you would want to use common sense and choose colors that evoke the images of college girls. Blush pinks, baby blues, plaids are all colors that come to mind. If you’re making a site of British sailors, then what comes to mind? Usually its red, blue, black, and white. You wouldn’t, for example, have a babysitter website with the colors of neon green and orange. Once again, if you have any doubts, just look at other sites for inspiration.


This one is easy. If you have done the chore of securing fantastic content, then give your visitors a taste. Give them something that will wet their appetite for more. This is where you’ll be able to get some good conversions by showing visitors a sample of what they can see in the site. We all know, that the cover on the porn is seldom what is on the actual DVD itself, so show them some sample images or video clips. One other thing I would suggest is to use images from the content you’re providing. Nothing can be more frustrating than coming to a website, seeing a beautiful girl (or guy), scrambling to put put in your credit card number, only to be disappointed by not being able to find any of the content that was hinted at on


We’re not referring to the pictures and videos here. We’re referring to the written content on the page. You will want something there so that you can do search engine optimization and get your website out there. 2-3 paragraphs on your main page, with keywords of your niche thrown in. Don’t just feed the content with these keywords. Do use these keywords in coherent sentences that explain what you offer, how often your updates are, etc. This is your chance to sell your site to the customer, don’t lose the opportunity. If your site offers 3 updates a week, then please, tell them that. If your site offers access to 4 other sites when they sign up, then let them know that as well.

Generating Revenue with Adult Affiliate Programs

What are Adult Affiliate Programs?

Affiliate programs are a way of making money, selling other people’s services. In our industry, it means that you will have links and banners on your websites that will be provided to you by the different affiliate programs. Another alternative is to do your own creative marketing to drive traffic to your affiliate’s websites.

The most common type of program is based upon commission and they will pay you either a set amount or percentage, per sale.

Here are some things to keep in mind when deciding on the right affiliate programs for you:

  1. Read, Read Read – Read the FAQ’s, read reviews of that program on google, read about the content they’re providing. Find out how much you have to sell before you get a check.
  2. Choose Wisely – If your website is called, then you certainly wouldn’t want to be part of an affiliate program that caters to overweight nuns. Use common sense and choose a program that is within your niche.
  3. Demand – If you don’t think that anyone would want to click a link or see the content that an affiliate offers, then odds are, neither will anyone else. Check to see if there is a lot of demand for content that you are thinking of promoting. Do some research online to see if others are finding success, or failure, with it.
  4. Payday – Find out when you will get paid, how the payment happens. The most common methods of payment are bank transfer, paypal, and company check.
  5. Credibility – Research online to find out if there are any complaints about the company you’re looking to market for. Make sure you’re not getting involved in a scam. Odds are, if you can’t find a single thing online about them that is positive, that it could be a bad idea to join up with them.


Locate an affiliate program by payout type: Pay per signup (flat fee per join), Recurring or RevShare programs (partnership or sponsor programs where you earn a percentage of each sale including monthly recurring), and pay per click. You can also earn commission on adult products by setting up a cobranded adult store and adding it to your site as a feature or by simply sending traffic to selected products or categories through text links or banners. The last is gaming affiliate programs, where casino, poker, and sports contests tend to reach the same demographic as porn. Explore them all here and start making money today .

Affiliate marketing can be frustrating and you might make some bad decisions, but if you give it time you might end up learning a thing or two, and making some money along the way.
