When doing research and considering to start out in the adult affiliate marketing business I believe you need to discover and visit the best programs and networks online. Then you can see what sites and products you can promote and what rewards you can get for sending traffic their way. I would also join a handful of programs initially to see what promotional tools and free content are available.

The polar opposite would be visiting some small programs only with strange niche porn and badly designed websites that may also be badly converting. Or maybe just making assumptions (like: “no one pays for porn”) without actually reading forums and reading about how much webmasters are earning by buying traffic or making and managing their own sites.

What is affiliate marketing?

Affiliate marketing is a “rather new” thing on the internet that has gotten really big. It let’s you join programs to promote the products and services of other companies. You earn commission when sales are made. A usual commission amount for the adult affiliate business is about 50% recurring revenue for porn sites, and 20% webcams.

Joining the affiliate programs is totally free and you get access to a different set of marketing tools at each one. All programs will have tracking links, and the possibility to create campaigns. The tracking links ensures that your traffic sent will credited to you. You can set up campaigns to track different sources of traffic.
