So you want to be a porn star? Excellent! A career in the adult industry can be both challenging and deeply fulfilling. However, A successful porn career takes more than merely taking hard cocks; it takes a lot hard work. So, here are some steps you can take to protect yourself, build your brand and find success in this fantasy land.

1. Pick your name

What’s in a name? Everything! Your performer name is the building block of your brand so be sure to choose wisely.
Make sure your name is not the intellectual property of any other entity i.e. brand names, characters from popular media, celebrities or other porn performers. For the love of the porno gods google the name you are thinking of using before you perform under that name!
Other things to consider are spelling, make it easy to spell because as we all know, most people will probably be typing with one hand.
Also, you should pick a name that is well suited to the kind of content you hope to create. For example, I wanted to make BDSM porn, so I chose a name that related to BDSM porn: Mona Wales, as it moan and wail. Get it? Good.

2. Buy Your Domain

Control your domain by buying your website name ASAP, don’t wait to establish yourself, or get a few scenes under your belt, do it now!
If you don’t do it now, someone else will and then sell it back to you for 10k when you decide it’s finally time to start your website.
I purchased monawales.com a full year before I did anything with it. Most domains cost less than 10 dollars.
Pro tip spend the extra ten bucks to make your ownership private so that your legal name and performer name are not linked.

3. Be A Social Media Butterfly

Social Media is our single biggest tool for marketing and promotion of adult products. Social Media allows you to market directly to your fan base and network with other people in our industry. Start a Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat on day one. When selecting your stage name check to make sure that relevant social media handles are available it pays to be @yourstagename so that you are easy to find online.

4. CAM!

Grow your fan base by streaming webcam shows! Even if you are not making big money on an hourly basis, your time spent on cam will pay off in the long term.
Here’s why: Camming allows you to make personal connections with a group of people that are already accustomed to paying for pornography. Camming with these clients allows a group of qualified customers to make a personal connection with you and your brand.

5. Create Your Content

Make your content! Even if the content you are making is created by just using your phone. One clip can be sold multiple times across multiple platforms… forever…This helps the longevity of your career, and your bank account.
When you create your content, you have total control over what content is produced, allowing you to craft a brand and an image to your liking.
Also, it never hurts to learn a new skill like video production incase you ever want to leave the industry or make a transition to the other side of the camera.

6. Become an Affiliate

Affiliate marketing is a powerful tool that our industry uses to sell porn. It works like this: You sign up for an affiliate account. In order to this, scroll down to the bottom of the page click the button that says “webmasters$$$” and sign up.
The affiliate account will provide links and content for you to tweet and share, and for every signup purchase that comes from your affiliate link you get a percentage of that sale. Sign up for the affiliate programs of the studios you shoot for most frequently and you will make money for work that you would already be doing (i.e. tweeting links to your latest shoots).
Additionally, you should promote the kind of content you want to make and be associated with and send happy wankers on their way while you earn money for basically nothing.

7. Be clear about the kind of content you want to make.

What you choose to shoot and not shoot says a lot about you and your brand. It is totally ok not to shoot a type of content that doesn’t interest you. You should always shoot what you love and shoot with the people you love.
When you first start many people will be trying to get you to do many things or not do certain things. For example, people will say don’t shoot fetish if you are not interested in it. Don’t do an anal scene if you haven’t done it in your personal life.
On the other hand, what you do not shoot also says a lot about you and your brand. Not shooting with or charging more to shoot with people of color or transgendered performers also says something about you and your brand. Check in with yourself and make sure you are comfortable with the kind of message you are sharing with the world.

8. Be Nice

Crazy bitch is my brand. I am a dominatrix, and I make money for being mean to people. I am not mean to people for free and neither should you. Be nice to your fans, and your fellow sex workers. Do favors, help people get work and network. Remember: what goes around comes around.

9. Diversify Revenue Streams…

Don’t put all of your porno eggs in one basket. The porn market is always changing, and you need to be ready for anything. Don’t just cam for one website, don’t just sell your clips on one platform, don’t just shoot for one company. Websites go under, studios move on to new faces, and platforms change their terms of service. Follow the boy scout code for adult work and always be prepared. (The exception to this rule is when someone offers you a sweet contract for exclusivity, in that case, make your money because contracts like that don’t come around every day).

10. Believe in yourself and your business

Sex work is real work. We live in a society that often devalues or ridicules sex work. Porn performers are sex workers and small business owners and entrepreneurs. We must stand strong against sex worker stigma and take ourselves and our work seriously.

Follow these ten rules of the porn industry, and you will be on your way to success.
