Hopefully I don't bore you with too much info, but I want to make sure you understand where this question is coming from.

For 8 or 9 years now, I have owned the website "HomeMadePornos.com", and I sold homemade (amateur) VHS tapes. No....not my own, but ones that I had the rights to sell, as well as others that I sold on consignment for other people, taking a percentage off the top.

I shut the site down for 2 reasons.....
1) It stopped being profitable when DVD recorders became available and they were more than I could afford at the time.
2) When my kids were little, it was easy to hide/explain away the 9 VCR's and mountains of tapes, but as they got older, it was harder and harder to hide, so I finally gave up and and let the site collect dust.

Now that you're up to speed, it brings me to today. I want to do one of 2 things with it.......either sell the name on Ebay, or use it for something, preferably for making some $$$.

If I sell it, I'd like to drum up the traffic for a couple of months before listing it. If I toss my sig picture from here on the site, would the traffic from all of the wackbag users browsers grabbing the pic from my site appear as traffic to my site?

If I don't sell it...............any ideas for using it to make $$$??

I'm usually good with things like this, but for some reason, I'm totally stumped on this. :arrrh: :arrrh:

I'd appreciate any help or advice you can give me.

how about making a site with home made porn clips and making money off the advertising and referrals like steve c does with foundry?

I'd say sell the site. But don't use Ebay. I'd contact some production companies in the business and ask if they would be interested in it. I'd think that some company would want it to sell videos they have the rights to but can't sell on their main site cause their main site is a reputable pornstar site.

Convert all the videos to AVI, and fill the site with torrents of them.

Let all us baggers d/l em for free for 2-3 months, as well as spamming usenet and other sites with info on it.

Then sell it, but not on ebay.

Make contact with sites with similar content, and see if they are interested.

The tapes are VHS, but I could always convert them over, so that wouldn't be a big deal, but the bigger problem would be the bandwidth I'd need to pull that off. I don't know if I'd be able to swing that right now. :icon_neut

Become an amateur porn directory? Kind of like Persian Kitty but focused on amateur?

Then just convert them and find a way to get them to me.

I love that homemade shit.

I'll even send ya $5 for the trouble, although it would be the first time i've paid for porn since i discovered #3x on irc.whatnet.org and torrent sites like fileporn.org

You 2 just pointed out more reasons as to why the site became unprofitable for me......thanks fuck-o's. hahaha just kidding (I was only jokin')


By the end of the weekend, I should have a webhost, and a very generic main page up there. I figure I'll play around to try and get some traffic to the site to make the name known a bit.

Keep the tips coming!!!!
