    The Good Workaholic!

    By Titmowse | Writer @ CozyFrog | NOV.12.2005

I don't know who started that fucking fairy tale but I wish they would shut the hell up. It's not true, Never has been true. Never will be true.

Every adult webmaster that has achieved financial success worked hard. Some of them perfected business models, automated tasks and hired help, which gave the appearance of an easy life but trust me, it takes a lot of sweat to make things look effortless.

"The legend of the good workaholic webmaster need not be a tale of woe. You have to work hard but you shouldn't kill yourself in the process."
Yes. Yes. The adult web had a heyday. Back in the dinosaur ages, anybody with some digital smut, a merchant account and hosting could pick and choose surfers. At the start, the webmaster-to-porn-customer ratio definitely fell in the smutmonger's favor. However, that period lasted about ten minutes in the overall scheme of things. Competition among adult webmasters becomes stronger every day. If you begin as an adult webmaster right now, you will be in contention with close to a million other adult webmasters.

I suppose what infuriates me so much about the bogus claim at the top of this article is that it implies that there's some secret formula or map waiting for you. If you just say the magic word or throw enough money out there, the invisible pimp fairies will reveal their enchanted spell.

Wake up, little sleeping pornographer. That's bullshit too. There are places we can show you. There are methods we can explain. There's tips we can give you. We can tutor you on the basics of HTML all the way through to the intricacies of how to run a paysite. What we can't do is work for you. And no matter what your experience level, if you've never sold Internet porn for a living, then you've got a lot of work cut our for you.

The fact is the adult Internet is a volume business. Most webmasters make their money because they create and submit new sites and galleries every single day. They market every day. They upgrade every day. They add new features and try new niches every day. Adult webmasters learn new sales techniques, buy content, create graphics, re-write site copy and push new sponsors every day. The prosperous adult webmaster is the one that is willing to spend hours and hours working out the tedious details of this industry.

We're not suggesting that you don red slippers and dance until you're dead. The legend of the good workaholic webmaster need not be a tale of woe. You have to work hard but you shouldn't kill yourself in the process. Where's the fun in that? What's the point of making money if you can't enjoy it? Why work for yourself if you end up acting like a slave boss?

The adult webmaster has complete control of work time and free time. You set your schedule and you're the one that has the power to call it a day. If you need a nap, take a nap. If you want to take Thursdays off, take Thursdays off. If you are dying to see that new movie and you want to go in the middle of the day, then go. You're self-employed. You're not some princess locked in a tower. If you need to let your hair down, there's not a wicked stepmother alive that can stop you.

The lesson to learn here is that you are the guardian of your fate. It's up to you to figure out how to be a good workaholic.

If your once-a-week gallery is generating signups but not enough signups, then you'll probably need to build galleries once a day. If your little free site is selling one membership a day then you should build a whole bunch more of those little free sites. If you don't know the difference between a free site and a gallery, then you need to spend weeks, perhaps months learning about this business. If you know about this business, then you're going to have to devote weeks, months and maybe years practicing your skills until you see sustainable profits.

There's no potion to mix. No sorcerer's stone to locate. The real magic comes with real hard work.

Rejoice anyway! You're doing something better than magic!

As an adult webmaster, you get to write your own legend. Whatever victory you achieve, it will be yours. The tortures you endured will be your proof of bravery. When you decide to have some fun, it will be your decision. The parable of the good workaholic is one that only you can tell!
