Cross-sell, X-sell and up-sell

You may have noticed an offer to join other sites on a paysite join form like: “Sign me up for another subscription to Danielle FTV at a price of $6.95(USD) for 7 days (trial) then $19.95(USD) recurring every 30 days.”. It’s called cross-sell or x-sell and it offers to buy some other site with the one surfer is buying simply by checking it into check out form. That's an example of good cross-sell. Legit x-sell is clearly visible, provides site URL and full payment info. It also offers a site of the same kind for discounted price.
There have been AAS programs and some still remain practicing shady x-sells, providing nothing but additional charges for unneeded services. Shady x-sells become visible only after in-depth join form research. There’s clearly an intention by program owner to hide it and a few x-sells are used at the same time. False texts promising “Free lifetime” are used in visible part, then somewhere in fine print it says that it’s time limited offer. No billing would allow that, so those programs are using their own merchant accounts with some offshore third world countries banks. X-sells rebill at much higher cost (in total) than initial site price surfer is buying access for. That’s an example of shady x-sells descriptions:
“Get access to a 2 Day Trial to Mobile DVD Library **, Get access to a 3 Day Trial to ExGF Pass ***”
No site URLs are provided and those sites have no real value for customers (just a bunch of low quality content dump). Also there were a few programs using credit card information to bang those cards with un-authorized charges. Checkblacklist for them. I strongly do not recommend you to promote those programs because they are the ones killing this business. Once cheated, the customer will never buy porn again. Shady programs are using high rate promo PPS to get more affiliate traffic. They pay pennies for it compared to what they get through their shady methods. By promoting such “programs” affiliates get involved in their scam business.

Affiliates can be credited for x-sell sales only if a program uses its own sites in x-sell through affiliate link code. With FTV example that x-sell sale will be credited to affiliate, because Danielle’s site is assigned to the same Client Account as FTVGirls and the cookie set by visiting any paysite link for that program works for all of its sites(account grouping is on in this case, what is also required). Programs usually pay higher PPS for promoting x-sell tours. If you are seeing it in your revshare link and you aren’t credited for it – request an owner to have it removed.
There’s also another option called up-sell. It is an offer to buy some other site access into paysite members area. With the industry recession over the last few years many programs are doing that. With too many programs and paysites in almost every niche programs don’t pay that much attention on their site branding anymore. They become affiliates of other programs to sell them through their paysites members area. It definitely lowers member retention because a member might find promoted paysites more preferable for him, so affiliate who has referred that member gets less rebills. But it’s how the things work nowadays and I can’t blame programs because of that. If they continue to develop their paysites and pay affiliates on time it’s fine. Not only other paysites are used as up-sells, but also webcams,datings, toy stores, desktop-dancers, etc. From branding perspective it’s better to use those alternatives instead of competitive paysites. Keep in mind that there should be no up-sells on affiliate tours. Ask program owner to remove them once you find any major traffic leak. In that case some programs have pay site tours for their in-house traffic and clean affiliate tours with no traffic leaks.

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.
