Netflix, the popular American entertainment company was founded in 1997. Twenty years is more than a reasonable time period for assessing the performance any subscription based video on demand website. No doubt, Netflix has lived up to the expectations of entertainment industry. In the context of adult entertainment industry, are there any subscription based video streaming sites that attained the stature of Netflix? One prominent adult entertainment website is Adult Rental which streams more than 80000 full length sex movies. Other prominent examples of adult membership websites are Brazzers, NaughtyAmerica, RealityKings, Faketaxi etc. Barring these few subscription based sites, many adult membership sites end up being crashing disappointments.
Web developers’ caveats aside, the truth of starting an adult site resonates deeply for anyone whose objective is enriched by the lucrative nature of porn industry. The talking point is how to start my own porn company. Whether you are a solo performer or a production studio, if you are looking to start an adult membership site, purchase xMember– an adult Content Management turnkey software.
Why xMember? – A question every adult webmaster would want to know an answer to. In a competitive industry with multiple alternatives for building adult subscription websites, what justifies selecting xMember over the other turnkey scripts?
Subscription Based Membership
xMember gives you multiple options to operate a subscription based membership system for users. You can set as many plans and as many price points as possible. As the administrator of your adult tube site, you can grant access privileges to users according to their plans and let them download videos.
Manage Model Directories
You can ban those models who do not comply with your rules. Some models try to promote their own webcam sites. You can let them promote by asking them pay a certain commission. Some models fail to upload their profile pictures. You can send personal messages to models and tell them to upload their profile pictures. You can monitor their activities.
A Content Management System (CMS) comprises Content Management Application (CMA) and Content Delivery Application (CDA). By using CMA, users can modify and remove content from a website. For instance, models can edit their profiles and upload new profile pictures. All such modifications do not require the intervention of adult webmasters. On the other hand, CDA does the job of collating information and updating the same on adult websites. There are many advantages – For instance, there is no need to write lengthy code from scratch to grant permissions to users. There are special provisions in CMS to grant permissions to users. Apart from permission management, CMS helps you create uniform looking graphical interface.
Highly Secured Platform
We often witness the scaffoldings of cyber-attacks. However, xMember’s reputation, verging on alert systems has remained firmly intact. xMember has got all the capabilities to tackle malicious attacks of any magnitude. xMember has various built-in modules that hinge on proactive mechanisms to prevent malicious injections
Amazon S3 Integration
S3 stands for “Simple Storage Services”. As a matter of fact, you can use S3 to store and retrieve data such as documents, images, files etc., at any point of time. xMember is compatible with Amazon S3. To host your media files, you are at liberty to avail Amazon S3 services. If you want to host them on your server, you are at complete liberty to do so. Amazon S3 services are unflappable and affordable. Moreover, the cloud storage is highly scalable. I would therefore advise against hosting media files on your server.
PayPal does not support adult entertainment platforms. However, this fact should not deter you from starting an adult site. Prominent payment gateway CCBill is available as a built-in payment gateway. In addition to CCBill, you can have more than 20 payment gateways such as ePoch, Verotel, ePay etc., as add-ons.
Multiple Video Formats
Users showcase their love for their favorite models by uploading a wide range of videos. Unfortunately, all the videos do not have the same format. Some videos have AVI format. Some videos have MPEG extension. This non-uniformity can cause troubles. You need not worry as xMember allows users to upload videos in AVI, WMV, QuickTime, DIVX, MPEG, 3GP, FLV etc. xMember then converts them into a uniform format in the background.
Integrated ecommerce Store
Models can create their own dedicated ecommerce stores and sell not only digital products but also physical products. Right from selling clothes and toys to digital products such as Snapchat accounts and personal video clips, models can sell every possible adult accessory.
Trail vs VIP Membership
Growth hacking features that enhance subscriptions are in abundance in xMember. This ‘Trail vs VIP Membership’ feature allows customers to explore your adult membership site for 2 days. Of course, the users shall be granted limited privileges. They can be then converted into VIP members. Many leading turnkey software scripts do not have this feature. Quite intentionally, Adent.io has combined this feature with various growth hacking plugins. Believe me, it is more than a BOMB!
Fully Responsive Website
In many ways, technology has given adult entertainment industry a remarkable image. Earlier, many adult entertainment ventures used to have separate websites for mobiles, tablets, laptops etc. Thanks to the emergence of Bootstrap technology, adult entertainment ventures can just create only one website which can be accessed on mobile phones, tablets and desktops. The beauty of pixel perfection of adult websites built by using Bootstrap technology resonates deeply with every set of target audience.
Today, we face the commodification of the word ‘customization’. It is being misused. To be upfront, this word is being abused by many adult webmasters. Something which is customizable can be modified according to the requirements of customers. Many turnkey software available in the market are not customizable. There are several limitations and I am aghast at the deadly silence in the section of experts of adult entertainment intelligentsia who do not give a hoot about disclosing this truth.
xMember is customizable as it is built with MEAN Stack. By the way, MEAN stands for MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS and NodeJS. You need not be an expert to customize the product as per your requirements. You just require a little bit of expertise to make changes to the neatly written code. If you have any doubts, you can refer to the documentation. Documentation should ideally resolve most of your doubts. If you have any queries, you can always reach out to the support staff of Adent.io
xMember is capable of handling huge traffic. It is horizontally scalable as it is built on a distributed architecture. In other words, it can operate on multiple servers. To cut the long story short, encoding is done on a different server while streaming is done from a Content Delivery Network. Technical caveats aside, what it essentially means for you is that xMember is fully scalable.
One of the important yardsticks of a fully operational membership turnkey software is the number of monetization options. xMember is loaded with several monetization options such as ads, banners, eCommerce store etc. Some of the monetization opportunities are selling digital products such as Snapchat accounts, Instagram accounts etc., through eCommerce store. In addition to setting different membership levels and pricing schemes, there are several custom modules such as
- A dedicated growth hacking plugin to boost VIP sales
- Pay per Minute phone calls (only voice)
- Pay per minute Live webcam private shows (based on tokens)
- Tips to solo performers
- Pay per Text chat
All the above mentioned features clearly indicate that xMember is a winner. If you have any doubts or concerns, feel free to drop a line or two in the comments section. I shall reply in a day or two. Keep watching this space for insights on adult entertainment industry. My best wishes are with you and your adult membership site. Start your own Netflix of porn today. Cheers!
