Niches and Promo tools (FHG, Tube Clips, Embedded videos)

It’s the hardest thing to start if all this is new for you. The first thing to decide is the niche you’ll be working in. There are major niches like AmateurLesbianGayHardcorePornstarsTeenSoftcoreFetishShemale and others. It’s wise these days to pick very specific niche called ‘micro niche’ like dirty feetstrapon lesbian sexsocks pornblack shemalesfamous toons, etc. Signbucks Daily represents complete list of niches, many of which have their own microniches. There’s less competition in there and illegal tubes can’t provide quality microniched porn. Just make sure you’re comfortable with the niche, otherwise there won’t be much happiness in your work. Of course, it would be the best to promote the stuff what turns you on. You’ll know what people are looking for and you’ll be able to provide your visitors exactly what they are looking for. Keep your niched sites updated with brand new material, what is very important. In addition, brand new sites often show better performance. You can receive brand new sites via email into general list of sites at SignbucksDaily or into any niche.
Once you’ve defined the niche – run some research. Pick up specific keywords, search them in Google, take a look at other affiliate sites. Check what kind of sites they are running. Build your sites, do link trades with others, find ways to get more traffic – that’s everyday affiliate business.
Most affiliate traffic sites are based on affiliate program promo tools, which are graphic and html elements used to promote pay sites. It’s important part of a program, but not every program provides it. You should keep in mind that affiliate programs are also run by newbies. I’ve spoken with many program owners which don’t know basic aspects of this business (there will be an article for starting up programs). They can be professional and skilled erotic photographers, but not that strong when it comes to running a pay site and affiliate program. Some hire professional webmasters to run their sites and program, but some decide to do all on their own. They do what they can, but it’s in your interest to sell their stuff as much as possible. The lack of promo might be even better, because under promoted sites have better performance than saturated ones. Often it is worth the effort to create your own promo tools to get better sales.
The only thing a partner program has to provide is pay site itself. Member’s area content is what people are looking and paying for. Many programs realize importance of having promo tools and try to make them effective sales tool. Usually it’s required to join a program first before you can use its promo. With huge increase of mobile traffic, many programs also provide mobile ads. You can find example page containing different promo over here: http://promo.signbucks.com/sample/index.html
At Signbucks Daily you can filter programs by promo tools into each niche through the right menu: http://www.signbucks.com/sites/list. We export major promo tools each pay site has and you can view them before joining the program on each site profile.
Those are major affiliate promo tools:
Banners – images promoting a pay site. They could be in jpeg, gif or flash format. Geo banners display custom text like ‘New York girls in porn’ (city is correspondent to visitor’s IP address) and are used mostly by dating and webcam sites. HPA/FPA – barely used these days’ half page / full-page banner ads.
Text links – promo text linked to a pay site.
Iframes – iframe code containing hosted by program ads. Usually is more creative, informative or functional than banner ads.
Pagepeels – iframe or script ads, used to promote the pay site through designed upper right corner of the browsing page.
IM ads – iframe or script ads which looks like icq or other instant messenger message.
Fansign – custom promo photo created on demand. It can be a model holding a sign: ‘I love XXX site’ or something more creative. Many program owners shooting their own stuff have no problem creating one for you just ask.
FHG – Free hosted gallery with photo or video set preview. It’s really good promo tool to use. E.g. with it you can have a row of girl thumbnails on your blonde girls site, each of which will be linked to a corresponding webpage containing previews of that girl taken from members area. Photo FHG contain ~ 12-16 pics, video FHG: 2-4 clips, flash (streaming) FHG: one or a few flash clips. Also there are so called mixed FHG containing photos and videos or streaming videos. Many webmasters create custom FHG to provide their visitors with unique content. You can ask for members area access once you’ll get a few sales with a program you promote, many program owners have no problem with it. FHG dump brings FHG links in a list or .txt file (required by TGP and CJ scripts). Also some programs provide their FHG into .zip files, so webmasters can edit and host them on their own.
FHG RSS feed – RSS feed containing FHG updates. Some have RSS for every specific FHG type, some just general feed for all types. We export RSS feeds for each paysite.
Tube clips – 1-5 min .flv or .mp4 clips for legal tubes. Clips can be hosted, then you just link to them. Or you can choose to host them on your own domain. We export all available tube clips for each site.
Embedded clips – iframe or script code you can insert into your web-site code to get streaming video. This is a popular blog tool. Its code looks like this:
<embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://share.apabox.com/player/player.swf" width="640" height="500" allowfullscreen="true" flashvars="file=http://share.apabox.com/clips/1-red087-hatsuka.flv&image=http://share.apabox.com/clips/1-red087-hatsuka.jpg&link=http%3A%2F%2Fjoin.alljapanesepass.com%2Ftrack%2FMjUyOjExOjEw"/>
Hosted blog – sponsor's blog for a pay site with affiliate’s links only:

Morphing RSS RSS feeds with changeable morphing text, morphing tittles and even morphing thumbs/pictures for each affiliate in order to avoid a content duplication problem, what is important SEO factor. The truth is that many programs have failed to deliver it. It consumes a lot, though it doesn’t pay back that well.
Free content – photos and videos a program provides for custom promo tools. Keep in mind that content can be in use by many other affiliates. Check whether it’s fresh or not before using it. Fresh stuff converts better.
As you see, there are many promo tools for affiliates. Also many programs have their own specific tools. Test as much as you can and pick up the best ones. It is repeated over and over again – every traffic is very specific. The same sponsors can convert differently on similar sites. The same works for promo tools.  Be sure to check each promo you use for correct tracking - surfers clicking that promo should be tracked with your id. Read the next article about scripts, programs are using to know more about tracking.

Does anyone have any thoughts on my micro-niche of absolutely unedited, raw footage of adult agency castings? they are actual castings, so lots of talking, pausing for direction, face pulling, dumb questions etc. Is this something people would like? Or should I rather just make it into a regular casting niche site?

wrong. Yes, Mature is a niche. So is Feet, Ebony, Latina, Creampie, Teen, BBW, ATM, Shemale and the list goes on... It's when you start getting specific the niche turns into sub and micro niches...the more specific, the smaller the niche. I.E. General niche: Mature sub-niche: Mature lesbian micro-niche: Mature lesbian vs teen

Actually dirty feet, strapon lesbian sex, socks porn, black shemales, famous toons, etc. are all SUB-niches. Toe-ringed dirty feet, black shemales with big tits, toe-socks porn, strapon ebony lesbian sex are micro-niches. The extra niche makes it a micro-niche.
