Making money as a porn webmaster is not easy. Like every trade it requires training, trying and failing. For most people that is the case at least. Some people have skills from similar trades and can go straight into the money advertising porn. If you on the other hand are not that lucky you should give it a few tries and learn as you go.
Porn has a very big user base. Millions of people are searching Google and other search engines for porn every day. When you have created a website and marketed it a little you will have a good chance of getting many visitors quickly. Visitors are usually only in for the free porn but some will convert to customers and make you money. It can take time to get enough traffic to have sales on a regular basis but if you create a website that visitors like you can get there. When you start to get sales you will get the benefit of high commissions. Most programs offer 50% recurring revenue share or high ($30+) one time payments for each new member you refer, even for cheap trial memberships!
Porn affiliate programs are partner services that premium porn sites use to get help promoting their product. You can sign on to all of the programs listed below for free. Most requires that you have a website set up already. If you don't have hosting yet, check out some of the best porn web hosting companies which you can host all your adult xxx sites with - small or large! Once you are registered to a program you will find promotional tools in the "affiliate area". Most programs will have pictures and videos you can download and then upload to your own sites and add affiliate links to the respective site that the content was grabbed from. Most programs got hosted picture galleries and many programs have hosted videos you can use to create tubes. You can also use social media like Twitter to promote your sites: the possibilities are many. I like to use Twitter to promote my sites where I again promote premium porn sites. Some people directly link to the premium site from Twitter. Other ways to get traffic for your sites and get more clicks and affiliate sales on the is by SEO (very good traffic comes from search engines) and Tumblr blogs.

Making your first porn website can be fun and interesting. If you are into porn anyways. When it comes to website creation it "pays" to work on something which interests you AND that you have some knowledge about. Not only for webmasters huh? This goes for most work and businesses. The knowledge part you can of course gain as you go. The interest part is harder to get if porn already is not your "cup of tea". If you already like porn tho you should ask yourself if there is any particular niches that you like more than others. You can make a general porn site with all niches but it can be good to create different porn sites for different porn niches.
Your visitors want to know quickly what they can find at your site. If they know that your site is a great site to find for instance "teen porn" and you have a easy to remember site name and domain name they will come back for more! Getting visitors to come back is a very important part of building traffic to your website and making more money down the road.
There are many popular ways to make a porn site today. Let me mention: blog, TGP, social, tube and top list site. What kind of site you want to create depends on what you are familiar with. If you are just starting out and want to make money as fast as possible I would suggest to make a porn blog. Many mainstream bloggers make a lot of money these days and it is definitely one of the easier (and great) ways to get set up promoting porn. A great benefit for porn bloggers is that you can sell a product in every post you publish. Also you can get great content for the blog from the porn affiliate programs like embedded videos and full HD pictures. There are many popular blogging platforms out there but the most popular and a great pick would be to go with the WordPress blogging system. Read more about: How to make a porn blog for affiliates.

This depends. But one thing is for certain, you need a little bit of both. If you follow the above guide for creating a simple blog you can get away with really low investements in both time and money. You can use a theme (a free/premium blog design) and not having to pay for a web designer or spend a lot of time coding. It can be really plug and play and you can get started cheap and quick! If you have money to invest it makes sense to invest in your site over time. Before you start big promotions for your website you want to have it up and running with maybe 100 posts so that your efforts have a chance to monetize. Then give it another boost with another long running ad on a fellow porn site once you get to 200. How big sites you can afford to buy ad spots on depends on your budget - but it always makes sense to find websites with similar niches. A decent ad spot can cost as little as $20 and up to $500 or $1k for placements on really good sites. An easy way to get a deal done is to contact the webmaster directly and get a yearly deal (for the best value!). If the site you want to advertise on has got no contact form you could try a whois lookup to get the contact e-mail for that site/domain. Once you get a few good ads and some decent traffic you can start free link trades with other sites with similar amounts and niches of traffic. How long it takes for you to get to 100 posts depends on how often you update your blog. If you add 1 posts each day on average it will take you 100 days and if you only have the weekends free and manage to add 5 posts a week it will take you 140 days.
