We all know that porn has had something of an image problem from day one. Since the creation of the Internet the adult entertainment industry has been dogged by unscrupulous studios, fly-by-night sites active one moment and gone the next, sponsors leaking traffic you’ve sent them to another site of theirs, or simply payments not being made to those who have worked hard to earn that money.
I hear the sound of my partner call from the kitchen, his deep voice cutting through the spring air filling the house as he enters from the garden, offering a coffee, and I snap out of my daydream. I reply appreciatively before tapping at my keyboard to check for new mail.
I have several urgent messages from rich widows and the representatives of recently deceased Nigerian banking officials, but there’s another, and it’s from… you.
You’re in need of someone to write content for you, and I’m in need of someone to join my current client list and finally fill my working day with lovely words – lovely words pouring from my fingers like the sun now pours through my window and bathes my desk. Delicious sentences more compelling than the aroma of fresh coffee now flooding through the house.
So what are you waiting for, the rain to stop?
I had an email from a potential client yesterday advising me that they had chosen to work with another supplier for a considerable task. This was perfectly fine – I confess that my response to their initial inquiry was slightly delayed and they needed the work done quickly.
Having checked out the work supplied by the unmentioned company and now published on the client site, it seems that the vast majority of it is stolen copy/paste.
My potential client chose a seemingly professional company, and in return for their money they received copied content from blogs, forums, news sites and even their direct competitors!
I thought it wise to suggest here – for any existing and potential clients of GCW – some ways in which you can check the integrity of any text you purchase.
I personally type all of the work that I provide. I use source material and research scenes and subjects wherever possible, and I type my own text for my clients – with a focus on SEO and the subjects or performers I believe will provide organic traffic for their site.
When a client requests a considerable piece of text (site review, performer profile, article etc) I check this through Copyscape Premium to ensure that there are no risks of accidental duplication.
Copyscape is an online resource able to be used by anyone. You can check any text you wish through this service to see if it has appeared anywhere else, and the level at which it is similar.
Another method is to select random lines of the text you have received and run them through a Google search with quotation marks. This searching method will provide examples of where Google has found that exact line on other sites.
Both of these methods are a great way to see where your content is. You can use it to check the integrity of text that you have paid for, check for accidental similarity, or even see if anyone else has stolen text from your site too.
TOP TIP –
When purchasing text from a provider for the first time, I would suggest requesting one small piece first (without telling them why). Wait for a week, and then run the above checks to see if this work has been taken from another source or supplied to more than one client of that company.
As you may expect, there are a few sites out there on the internet that I simply cannot work with. Thankfully, they are a very small minority.
These include sites promoting content that I personally am not comfortable working with. They predominantly involve very extreme content, or use younger performers and intentionally give the impression through site design and text of being “under age”.
Everyone has their limits, right?
But along with those I cannot work with due to the nature of their fetish, niche or models, there are also some that I find it impossible to work with due to the limits of their promotional content.
If a client requests a post of the latest content from a specific site every Mon, Wed and Fri, that’s great – when the content can be gathered from the affiliate area for that site. But there are some who do not provide the content easily and effectively, and therefore it can then take me an hour or more to try to track down the media from other sources.
As you can surely understand, I cannot justify charging less than $6 per post when I have to spend an hour or more gathering the media to use.
Therefore, starting at the beginning of April 2012, I will be creating a “Black List” of sponsors that I cannot create content posts for. These will be a mixture of extreme content that I do not feel comfortable working with, and sponsors who I feel cannot provide the content I will need to effectively create posts to promote them.
Thankfully, the list will be short. It will be published on a page on the Gay Content Writer site next month and sent out to all clients listed in the email newsletter.
Sponsors who find themselves on my little list can request removal of course. But this will only be done when I am assured that I have appropriate promotional materials to work with.
Gay Content Writer is proud to announce that one of our favorite clients is promoting our service to their affiliates!
GCW began working with AmAd Media Distribution earlier in 2011, providing written content designed to inspire and titillate. It’s been a great experience and our friendship has only strengthened this year with the decision by Nate of AmAd to promote the GCW service directly to their affiliates.
Through this partnership, those who promote the range of AmAd Media Distribution products will be encouraged to come to GCW for the rewriting of their affiliate content, increasing their originality, improving their SEO, driving click-through and increasing sales – and all at our extremely low rates.
We’re looking forward to working with their affiliates to provide them with original hand-written text, increasing their success over the years to come!
Of course, GCW would recommend AmAd Media Distribution and their range of sites found on the AmAdBucks affiliate pages for all those looking for some great sites to promote! Check them out and start earning some money promoting their hot content!
Plagiarism is a considerable problem on the internet. It goes without saying that thousands of affiliates are known to copy/paste the content from other sites without considering how it could harm them (as well as the source of the content). Many large adult sites neglect this when sending out their affiliate content to their team and rarely check to see whether any of their affiliates are copying their scene descriptions for promoting their products.
I understand that it can be worrisome for a webmaster when requesting the services of a writer too. There are a lot of unscrupulous people out there, and often the cheaper writers simply run an existing piece through a text masher and hope that’s enough.
All written content provided by Gay Content Writer is created directly upon ordering from source media and information gathered through research. Nothing is copied. As an added protection, all content above 300 words is passed through Copyscape Premium to ensure that there are no similar articles already in existence.
GCW takes originality extremely seriously. Customers can be assured that all content is written as requested, and when above 300 words is checked for accidental similarities too.
Gay Content Writer would like to make it clear that content will not knowingly be provided to clients using such content on a .XXX domain. We are joining an increasing number of webmasters in the adult industry and supporting the boycott against the further development of .XXX
While content is able to be used by our clients in any way they wish, GCW reserves the right to refuse to provide services to, or to end any relationships with, clients who support the implementation and use of .XXX
It has become clear in recent months that the implementation of .XXX is harmful to legitimate adult business, damaging to internet freedom, dangerous for the continued future of our industry and open to abuse and blackmail by unscrupulous individuals.
GCW wholly refuses to accept the implementation of .XXX and will not support it or other companies willingly submitting to, or participating in, the corruption, blackmail and censorship that arises from its creation.
If you intend to request that GCW produce content for you to use on a .XXX domain, please seek assistance from another writer.
If you would like further information relating to our stance on this issue, please send a message through the contact page.
As we come to the end of a great year for Gay Content Writer, I thought it would be wise to state again the differing writing packages offered to our clients. As always, the service is completely flexible, and if you are not sure what you might need, feel free to contact me and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
The Basic Package
Gay Content Writer works primarily with the gay adult affiliate webmaster, operating blogs and driving traffic to gay adult sites. Because site aesthetics are very personal to the blogger, GCW offers a basic rewriting service, providing 150 – 200 word text pieces from the supplied affiliate text and media. The emphasis is on driving sales with imaginative and graphic use of language, while including core SEO methods to assist in Google SERPS.
GCW receives the text and media (or a link to it already out in the wild) and the text is rewritten, with your goals in mind, and emailed back to you.
This can be done on a daily basis or arranged weekly.
The Complete Post
For those who would like to continue with other projects but don’t want to abandon their profitable blog, GCW offers a complete posting solution. The client provides a log-in and a list of all their content suppliers, with affiliate links, and GCW does the rest on a schedule of your choosing. You can be sure that your blog will continue without your constant attention, with GCW adding the media, the text and your links on your behalf.
Posting format can be agreed beforehand, ensuring that your site continues to build a regular and increasing income through original posting, while you focus on your other income streams.
Added in mid 2011, the commenting option was a service requested by one client and adopted by others. Providing support to the original post, comments are a great way to add additional information and assist in driving traffic. For example, GCW creates a post for a new video from one of your top converters, the following day a comment is added showing appreciation for that post and mentioning that the guy featured has appeared previously in another great video… The commenting service not only increases click through and interest, it can increase discussion and audience participation also, building up a strong following amongst the readership.
In mid 2011 GCW branched out into niche-specific fiction, providing male erotica for two clients. These extensive stories have proven to be very popular, and has led to greater emphasis on this service.
After working on adult product descriptions and reviews for the BlokeToys site, GCW has increased its efforts in this area and now offers this service to webmasters who also offer physical products for sale to their visitors.
Many retailers of adult products simply use the supplied product descriptions, and this of course affects their position when it comes to search traffic.
GCW can now provide a bespoke service to rewrite product descriptions to improve SEO efforts, increase traffic and gain sales of those products.
As always, these services are affordable and competitive, with basic services provided for less than the cost of a cup of coffee. All services are adaptable to your needs.
