2013 year was hard enough, while 2014 shows us no signs of significant changes. Global economy is still declining, while piracy is getting thru the roof.
The only good thing is that devoted professionals are staying in this biz. It gives us a chance to rethink the things which going on and provide our visitors porn in better shape and form.
Many years surfers were treated like dumb and ignorant money spenders, what made a lot of ppl turning off from this industry. They aren't buying any longer, but going to free net zone.

Signbucks did a lot to bring some business culture in the industry. While 1M tubes are fighting for pennies, we are generating around 1,000 sales on a monthly basis with sites getting a few dozens of thousands of daily traffic. That proves that those day ppl choose quality over quantity and they are still ready to pay if they liked a product.

That's a manifest for those decided to do business in 2014.
1. Be honest - no shady business tactics like cross-sales and phony products (fake datings, paysites with 5 scenes, etc)
2. Be creative - offer something people might really like
3. Follow quality standards (like member area standards (http://sponsorstalk.com/showthread.php?t=169), affiliate program standards (http://www.signbucks.com/static/tips-for-sponsors), etc)
4. Fight with piracy in every possible way. My top sponsor Vivid, which makes me 10k monthly gets all of its pirated stuff removed (they hire anti pirate company). Report file lockers sharing your content to StopFileLockers (http://sponsorstalk.com/showthread.php?t=141).

Webmasters who still rely on affiliate programs should work closer with sponsors. We report pirated content to those who I know fight with pirates.

The point is - we need to bring some business culture in this industry and unite by positive things.
One of those things is 0DayPorno.com (http://sponsorstalk.com/showthread.php?t=169) which is supposed to bring surfers daily updates from thousands of paysites and show exactly what each studio provides. I'm asking as many of you guys as possible to support that site by participating in its content program and by giving us a link from your paysite or "Resources" section.
Please implement the standards mentioned above in your paysites

I believe we can make it if we work closely together.
Wishing you all the best in 2014 ;)

Some people says how there is more money in adult industry then ever,which is possible,but there is one big difference-before there was many people making money with it,now there is only few companies which actualy make money,it's like it becoming some sort of monopoly.Just look at job market which is completely dead.

wish that big companies would put pressure on Google to

a) penalize sites more that get DMCA claims to almost all their pages offering file host links & many for long tube videos

b) stop giving top rankings to torrent sites for adult searches, those pages in essence have no real content, if people want torrents, they should add the keyword 'torrent' to their search

Google has become a super conductor of traffic into piracy: while people need to add things like 'porn' to their search to get any adult sites, it serves up all those surfers now to torrent, file hosts and tubes, and in case of the tubes, often to pages where the video has been taken down because of DMCA
