Did you know that Pornhub is the biggest porn website on the entire internet? It gets over 2.5 billion unique visits every single month. That’s a lot of people.

Just as with any huge advertising platform, the opportunities to make money on Pornhub through advertising revenue are equally enormous. That’s why today, I’m going to be teaching you how to get your own cut of the fortune and start making money on PornHub.

Adult Work

First, let’s address the elephant in the room: Yes, this is an adult-only money making method, so let me preface this article by saying that this money making method might not be for everyone.

Without giving up too much information, I know a UK gay couple who broadcast together, they have done extremely well, and they’re only about 3 months old on the platform.

Their donation numbers aren’t public but they do share the gifts they have received – one of them includes a 54-inch flat screen TV as a gift and 2 game stations.

It’s a somewhat-unconventional way to make money that a lot of people might not be comfortable with..but then again, you shouldn’t live a life controlled and shamed by the judgment of people who don’t matter ?

We live in a changing world and, I have to say, you got here yourself because of sex – like hello – your parents. It wasn’t an impeccable conception.

If you’re an open-minded woman or man (all this applies to Pornhub Gay too!) try out this online work opportunity where you can be your own artist. It’s a perfectly legitimate (not to mention highly lucrative) fun way to make money online.

With that in mind, let’s jump into the article, let’s start with the basics!

Privacy First ?

OK, the second elephant in the room — always be careful online. This is something that might bite in the butt if you are not careful or think this through. Is your future career path in 20 years, 30 years, going to be impacted? Is this your dream job? (For many it is!)

Although most sites take measures to ensure that personal information isn’t promulgate it is important that you personally strive to protect your privacy yourself.

Do not ever use your own personal phone number. It’s easy to look up numbers online for the full address of someone (think about the MTV show Catfish). Use third-party texting apps out there that isn’t tied to your real number like Kik, WhatsApp, TextPlus etc. Do not to use your real name.

Making Money on Pornhub Basics

The Art of Making a Ton of Money on Pornhub

To make money on Pornhub, you’ll basically be creating, publishing, and monetizing your own adult video content.

The first thing to be aware of is that you have to own the rights to any adult content you publish. In other words, you can’t publish other people’s adult videos and make money off them. It has to be your own videos.

There are many different ways to monetize your videos (we’ll talk more about that later). Regardless of how you decide to monetize your content, though, the five basic steps to making money on pornhub remain the same. Here they are:

First Step : Sign up for a free Pornhub account.

Second Step : Join the Verified Amateur Program (it’s also free).

Third Step : Make adult videos and publish them to Pornhub.

Fourth Step : Market your content and build a following (get people to watch your videos).

Fifth Step : Get paid!

Step 5 is the part we’re most interested in, right? So let’s move on and talk a little about how much you can actually earn.

How Much Money Can You Make on Pornhub?

How much money you earn on Pornhub depends on the showing of your videos. In that sense, it’s a lot like making money YouTube. Just like with YouTube, you don’t have a regular, guaranteed paycheck. Instead, your monthly earnings will depend on your videos’ performance.

As I said, there are a few different ways to monetize your content, so it’s hard to say exactly how much you can earn, but many Pornhub creators earn the bulk of their income through ad revenue.

Your ad revenue earnings vary depending on things like:

  • How many views you get.
  • Which country those viewers come from.
  • How many of those viewers click an ad.

And a few other factors. We can look at the average ad revenue as a way to get a rough estimation of your earning potential.

The average RPM (ad revenue per 1000 views) was $0.69 in 2017, and has been rising year on year.

Based on this figure, if your videos were to get a combined total of 10 million views in a month, you’d earn around $6,900 from ad revenue.

I know what you’re thinking – that seems like a lot.

However, the good news is that Pornhub is a less sopping platform than YouTube, so it should be a lot easier to get those views in the first place. I’ll be giving you some tips on how to get those views later on.

Plus, there are lots of ways to earn money on pornhub besides ad revenue. Let’s explore these other methods.

7 Ways to Make Money on Pornhub Through the Model Payment Program

There are 7 ways to make money through the Pornhub Amateur/Model Payment Program. These are:

1. Earn ad revenue through free-to-view Pornhub videos.

2. Sell your adult videos on Modelhub, Pornhub’s sister site.

3. Create a subscription-based fan club.

4. List your video on Pornhub Premium for higher earnings.

5. Get paid to create custom videos

6. Earn tips.

7. Refer other models and earn referral bonuses.

Below, I’ll explain exactly how to make money through each of these methods.

1. Monetize Free-to-view Pornhub Videos

This is the most common way to make money on Pornhub. All you have to do is upload your videos to the platform and allow them to be viewed for free. You’ll then earn a share of the ad revenue that your video generates.

The ad revenue share you get depends on your videos performance. This means both views and ratings. The more views, and the higher the rating, the more money you’ll earn.

2. Sell Adult Videos on Modelhub

Once you’re verified on Pornhub, you can sign up to their sister site Modelhub and sell your videos on there for cash. Every time someone purchases your video, you’ll earn 65% of the sale price.

If you’re not getting any sales, you can list them on Modelhub for free and earn ad revenue just as you would with free-to-view Pornhub videos.

Bonus tip: If you go down the free route, restrict downloads to paying customers. That way, your free video will be like a marketing tool to drive sales for viewers that want to download it.

3. Create a Fan Club

Once you’ve uploaded a few videos and have garnered some loyal fans, you can start making a lot of money through fan clubs.

Fan clubs are a kind of subscription service for your content. You can set your own prices for viewers to sign up to your fan club and reward them with things like photos, videos, or anything else you can think of.

If you get a big enough following, this can be one of the most lucrative ways to make money.

4. Earn Money Through Pornhub Premium

Verified amateurs can upload for-sale videos and make them available on Pornhub Premium by checking the ‘viewable on premium’ box.

This is great as Pornhub Premium views earn you substantially more ad revenue. You’ll earn an RPM of around $45 per 1000 views on Premium, as opposed to just $0.69 per 1000 views on the free section.

5. Sell Custom Clips

If fans are willing to pay you for a subscription service, they’re probably going to be willing to pay you for custom clips as well. Pornhub allows verified creators to take custom video requests. You can use this feature to set your own offers and get paid to fulfill custom fan requests.

6. Earn Tip Money

Another way to make money is through tips. Fans that appreciate your content can visit your Pornhub profile and leave you a tip. You’ll keep 80% of all the tips, and Pornhub will take the rest.

If you combine this with all of the other 5 sources of income above, you should be able to earn a lot of money.

7. Earn Referral Bonuses

Pornhub offer a generous referral bonus of $50. All you have to do to earn it is encourage anyone you know that might be interested to sign up using your unique referral code.

Each time someone signs up to the Model Payment program using your referral code and uploads 2 verified videos, your account will be credited with $50.

How to Join the Amateur Program

All of the methods we’ve talked about so far are only open to those verified on the Pornhub Amateur/Model Payment program.

To sign up for the Amateur program, you’ll need to:

  1. Sign up for a free Pornhub account.
  2. Submit a photo of yourself holding up a sign to verify your identity.
  3. Submit two valid forms of Government ID for you and any performers that feature in your videos in order to get paid.
  4. Wait for Pornhub admins to verify your request.

There are also some other, alternative ways to make money on Pornhub outside of the Model Payment program, which brings us smoothly onto our next section.

Other Ways to Make Money on Pornhub

There are a couple of other ways to make money on Pornhub worth mentioning. Here they are…

1. Use Your Videos to Promote an Adult Affiliate Network

A good way to make money through Pornhub outside of their Model Payment program is to use the videos you upload as a way to drive traffic to your own affiliates.

Affiliates are like referral links. They’re unique URLs that take people to a paid sign up page. If the viewer signs up to one of your affiliates through your link, you get paid a cut.

You can generate affiliate sales through Pornhub like this:

  1. First, make an account on an adult affiliate network and find some suitable offers to promote
  2. Next, purchase your own domain (website)
  3. Then, redirect your domain to your affiliate offer
  4. Finally, upload videos on Pornhub and add a watermark to them with your domain name/website URL.

Hopefully, if your videos get a lot of views, some of the viewers who want to see more will visit the domain listed on your video.

When they do, they’ll be redirected to your affiliate sign up page. Statistically, some of them will end up signing up to those affiliates, which will earn you money!

2. Make Money Through Patreon Donations

Patreon is a website where you can collect donations from loyal fans. A lot of YouTubers use it, and earn a lot of money from it. What a lot of people don’t know is that it’s open to adult content too!

This means that you can open your own Patreon account and encourage fans to donate in your Pornhub video descriptions. This can be a great way to earn money through your adult content outside of the Model Payment program.

The only problem is that you’ll be relying 100% on the generosity of your fans. That being said, it’s ultimately a numbers game. If you get enough viewers, some of them are bound to donate!

3. AdultNode Social Platform

AdultNode – I’ve heard a lot of people who managed to create some adult sharing photo and videos in adult social using software in order to grow the followers. I don’t think that’s a good method so I recommend you to do it manually daily. In about a month or more you should have an active list of followers here and also, some free traffic for your website.

How to Get More Views on Pornhub

Remember how I said in the beginning of this article that a big part of making money on pornhub was promoting your content and getting people to watch your video?

Well, before we finish, I wanted to give you some tips on how to do just that.

Here are some ways to get more views on Pornhub…

1. Target the Right Keywords

Pornhub is really just a search engine like any other. Most people find the adult videos they watch by typing something into the search bar. If you want your videos to get seen, you need to make sure that:

  1. People are searching for them.
  2. Your video is optimized around that keyword (it’s in the title and description).
  3. It’s not a super-competitive keyword.

2. Network With Other Users

A great way to build an initial following is by speaking to others. Leave comments on other videos, inbox other users and start chatting to them. People you engage with are more likely to view your content.

3. Produce Quality Content

It goes without saying that the videos that are going to get the most views are those that people want to watch. Use a high-quality camera to record your videos and try to make it as professional as possible.
