Limited run scene descriptions for the biggest sites

Do you promote EnglishLads, BelAmi or WilliamHiggins videos on your blogs?

For several months I’ve been receiving inquiries from affiliates regarding affordable scene descriptions for some of the largest and most profitable gay adult sites. These affiliates often don’t have the time to write unique content themselves, but they also prefer not to commit to purchasing unique content services for every update on their blogs, or require content only for a specific site as a focus for their blog.

After some consideration, I have decided to offer limited-run content for videos from the sites listed above. It’s a form of compromise for those customers seeking post content with more depth than the sponsors provide, while not requiring my services for every post they publish.

Ultimately, it’s a win/win. I get a good price for a thorough piece of writing, while the affiliate gets a better shot at competing with other affiliates for a lower price than they would if it were entirely unique to their blog.

Here’s how it works:

Let’s say a new video arrives on the WilliamHiggins website. As a member there I can log-in immediately and write a comprehensive review of the scene, an affiliate blog post of 300 words (widely accepted to be the minimum word-count required for good Google search traffic) that is totally original and unique. This might include a mention of what a featured performer has done before (a great reason to link back to a previous post on your blog) or news about a model which might not be common knowledge, such as other names they’ve been known by or work they’ve done for another studio.

Ultimately, this will be a high-quality post about the scene, with as much information about the video and the performers as possible, while being entertaining and informative.

As a WilliamHiggins affiliate signed up to my services, you will receive one copy of the full post by email on the day. There will only be 10 copies of this post available for my clients to buy. You might be the only one using it, in which case you just got a great deal on a low-cost, totally original post just for your blog.

Now, you might be thinking “What about Google and original content?”

While it’s true that Google does appreciate totally original content, and nothing can beat it, if you’re already pasting-in duplicate content which has already been published by a hundred other affiliates, or only writing a very short post with little compelling information, you’re still going to be better off paying for one of only 10 copies of the text I produce.

Wouldn’t it be better to be competing with only a maximum of 9 other affiliates for that post, rather than a hundred or more?

Each of these posts will be written on the day of publication (or earlier when in partnership with the sponsor), then emailed to each buyer for publication by them as and when they wish.

Now you might be thinking “What stops you from selling the same text to 50 other affiliates?”

You’re right to ask that, but I should point out that I have been in business as a writer for almost 8 years, I have a long list of clients I have worked with throughout that time, including some of the most renowned affiliates in the gay adult world and some of the biggest producers of adult content.

I have a reputation to uphold, standards to maintain and trust to safeguard.

Interested? Drop me a line – conran (at) gaycontentwriter.com – and we can discuss the details.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Tumblr Posting for traffic and audience engagement

I was a little late to the party, I admit. Social media was never really my thing when it came to adult business and the work I do for clients, but over the last six months I’ve been painstakingly researching the best tools and methods for audience engagement and click-through and I’ve done a pretty good job with one platform in particular – Tumblr.

I’ve had a couple of personal accounts on there for a while, sitting there rumbling along and not really doing much. This all changed in the last month when I logged in and went a little crazy scheduling posts with unique content.

Suddenly I saw my followers climbing at a rather immense rate, interaction with viewers increasing impressively, click-through to the relevant blog sky-rocketing (and their subscription to the newsletter there increasing too)

growing tubmlr followers

As you can see, in less than a month I have gained over 2,000 followers on this particular account.

This was achieved through the writing of original content, providing a link to my Tumblr (without being too spammy) and the use of appropriate tags.

If I can achieve this for my own Tumblr blog, I’m pretty sure I can achieve this for my clients too.

Whether you’re an existing client or just starting out as an affiliate on Tumblr, I hope you’ll get in touch and investigate this avenue with me further. It’s an exciting opportunity to reach many more people, get your brand in front of the right eyes and encourage click-through to your primary sites.

Feel free to contact me either through the blog or by emailing conran (at) gaycontentwriter (dot) com. I look forward to exploring this with you.

A lesson in picking your sponsors wisely

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.

Untitled – But You Should Read It Anyway

As the bashful sun peeks from the behind the wispy edge of a skulking rain cloud, I peer out through my rain-speckled window to watch a tear-drop of water drip from an outstretched leaf.

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.

Yes 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?

 

How To Avoid Being Ripped Off

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.

Sponsors – The Black List

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.

GCW Teams Up With AmAd Media

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 and the use of Copyscape

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.

The GCW stance on .XXX

Do Not Want .xxxYou’ll have to excuse my use of a LOLcat, I’m feeling nostalgic today.

Gay Content Writer has joined the boycott of .XXX in 2012 in an effort to support the continued freedom and diversity of the internet. I view the creation of .XXX as anathema when it comes to diversity and equality online, and that the use or support of the .XXX TLD is a danger to the adult entertainment industry.

The community on GayDemon (the leading forum for everything gay-webmastery) is almost wholly against the .XXX con too, and there are expected to be some interesting movements in our neck of the woods (no cruising jokes please!) in the coming weeks.

Read the full GCW statement on .XXX here.

OBSERVATIONS

PayPal Issues

It has become apparent to me that PayPal has been experiencing some “technical difficulties” recently. Several times invoices have been delayed due to errors. I am currently looking into this with PayPal and hope to have this resolved ASAP. My sincere apologies to any clients who may have been inconvenienced by this.

What Christmas slowdown?

I think many of us were expecting a little slow period over the Christmas and New Year holiday. I was actually looking forward to the break! While traffic and affiliate sales may have been a little sporadic, I was lucky enough to welcome three new clients for my services over the holiday. Welcome aboard guys (you know who you are!)

.XXX Boycott

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.
