5 Reasons why some online adult businesses struggle to compete


A business dealing with adult content or products are subjected to a lot of regulations and it isn’t to exist and succeed. There needs to be a proper plan and decisions to make sure that your adult business does well and competes successfully. Adult businesses are a niche and that is why they absolutely need to be online. An adult store for example, selling sex toys, with a physical store location will be limited to the area they are set up in. Chances are that the customers will make a one-time purchase. It isn’t like a grocery store where you run of consumables and have to visit every week or month. That is the reason why they need to have wider reach. If an adult business does get online, even then a lot needs to be done. Having a website isn’t enough for sales, the main point is to have visibility. So, here are a few reasons why some online adult businesses struggle to compete.


An adult business may get online and have a website for information and even sales. But is that enough? Thin about it. There is gazillion websites on the internet, so what chance does your website have? How do you tell people about your online presence? SEO can help change that. But a lot of online adult businesses don’t think about SEO in the first place. They think abut their website and the technicalities of delivering the product or service. But how will the delivery take place if there are no customers?


Plan your strategy when you are taking an adult business online. Think about the regulations in place in different countries and how you can manage that. Plan how you will be reaching out to your main customers. An adult business doesn’t provide general commodities so you cannot advertise yourself anywhere. You need to focus on places and mediums where people who are interested in your service can see it. Competition is fierce online and top websites are hammered with spam links. So, think about all of this when you are taking things online. This can mean a lot – success or not.

Guest posts

One of the easiest ways to compete and get views from relevant customers is through guest posts. Create an article that is relevant to your online adult business and post it to another website. You can mention your site or have link to your URL. Whoever, reads that article will have a chance to see your business name or your site link. If they choose to, they can click on that and get redirected to you. One should purchase adult guest posts from trusted high-quality websites. These sites must have good reputation and traffic, so that whoever visits that can be motivated to visit you too. If the site isn’t of quality, then it will be waste of time and money for you to be posting there. So, choose a good one, spend money if needed and get a guest post for your site.


Backlinks can help in improving ranking and the domain authority of a website. If you have an online adult business, you must try to build backlinks to successfully compete in the marketplace. These backlinks can improve your DA as well and then help you in getting a better ranking in a search. A good search rank means more people can see you when they search for something related to your business. Backlinks can be taken through various ways – some websites provide backlinks from articles and some from erotic stories. But it is universally understood that backlinks are the way to make your website more visible and trustworthy.


An adult business that is online can also register on certain forums for more views. What these businesses don’t think of is, reaching a potential customer has become easier through the internet. And this can be done if they are smart about it.
