Don’t Go For The Money, Making Porn Is Still A Job

This post is sparked by one of my recent customers, who is new to the adult business so I wish him great success. He and I were chatting after his purchase about what his next steps were (he hadn’t actually read the e-book yet ) and he was unsure of his direction. We got into discussing some things, and as we started to discuss finding a niche he mentioned a point that could have been a painful mistake.

In adult, I always suggest that you target a small niche, or you go after a huge one in a way that nobody else has before. We got into discussing small niches and he said how about “midgets in gimp outfits”. Wow, talk about a niche. If you find people interested in this, you probably have absolutely no competition and more than likely will have a customer for life! Sounds great right?

Well, let’s think about this. He is going to be building his business around “midgets in gimp outfits”. If he does this there is a good possibility to make some money, but what about his mental welfare? This guy is going to be looking at some freaky stuff on a daily/weekly/monthly basis. If he isn’t one of the few people on the planet that dig this, he might get a little sick of looking at that crap. Follow yet? He would be doing the worst thing he could possibly do here… he would be finding a new job to replace his old job, but would be choosing his job for money rather than happiness. MISTAKE!! You absolutely never want to start a new project like this and choose a niche that you are not at least a little bit intersted in. Now, I am not saying that you have to be the #1 fan of the niche, that would be silly. What I am saying is that you have to know what the hell the customer wants, and you have to enjoy what you are selling.

This is basic sales 101. If you can’t relate to your target audience, you are going to have a very difficult time selling. More importantly, you will not be passionate about it and likely will give up if you hit any speed bumps throughout your journey. In his defense, this conversation took all of about 20 seconds, but imagine what a mistake this could have been.

Have you had a similar situation where you got into the wrong project? Please let me know…

I know that this guy will be successful because he has the right attitude, but he has also gotten some valuable info just by asking questions. Please hit me up with any questions, I am really here to try and help people. It isn’t always about going for the money!!
