    Lex DeVille's: Guru Cults Exposed: The Tactics "Experts" Use To Pull You In & Suck You Dry

    GOLD! MARKETING 
    Back in the winter of 2017 when bitcoin went up to $17k or however much my mom got involved in a bitcoin MLM scheme...nothing legit at all, not even affiliate stuff, but sign up your friends type junk. Of course, after the 22nd of December, she lost interest in it.

    I was gifted an Ember mug. If you don't know, it's a Bluetooth mug that tracks the temperature of your drink and keeps it at whatever temp you set it at. It's certainly something I'd never buy myself...but wow is it a game-changer. Pour the coffee, it reads the temp then sends a notification...

    SIDE HUSTLE WEB DESIGN 
    This entire post is bad, and you should feel bad. Damn right. Why would I create a custom solution to something that's already created when I can focus on, oh, I don't know, revenue? Ah yes, WordPress, terrible SEO structure and web host. The same thing that would happen if any other server...

    What Is the Online Equivalent of a "Boring But Stable" Offline Business?

    You go after employers first. That's where the money's at. They're paying to post. Whether you draw them in with ads or outreach, you need that revenue coming in. Then you take what they pay you and do whatever you can do to drive candidates to their listing. It's not like they're expecting...

    I agree that it can be done but wouldn't consider it. To put an arbitrary limit to it, I wouldn't do any location or role that isn't a typical salaried position. $500 for a listing is nothing compared to the $70k paid to the person. $100 a listing for someone you want to pay $1k for a quick...

    Job boards. Not sexy at all and there's room for more. If anyone's done any hiring using the big boys like Indeed, Monster, etc, you know that you have to sift through a lot of dog shit to find people to interview. People with 10 years of dishwashing experience applying to be a project manager...

    OnlyFans has just proven how important the commandment of Control is

    HOT! 
    If you say so. Don't listen to the content creator @Lex DeVille or me who actively works with these companies. Brand awareness isn't good when people are looking to leave the platform. If I'm looking for an "alternate" it means I don't want the original. And the "marketing guru" line was about...

    I'm going to guess this will fall on deaf ears, but it's comments like this that lead people in the wrong direction. "free publicity, media attention and hype, and brand awareness" There is a such thing as bad publicity. This was bad publicity. And to show you the data, this is a screenshot...

    I have models pay me. That's false. Literally every major alternative has paid messaging. 80% is pretty much standard, with some platforms having variable pricing depending on the action (paid messaging, tips, livestreaming, etc). Any platform that goes above 80% is trying to compete on price...

    Do you want to know how I know you know nothing about the industry? Everything you just said is false, anecdotal, or simply made up.

    Recycle that course for AVN or any other platform. If you can get the migration course on something like Gumroad, I'll promote it. The last time I checked becomng a Udemy affiliate was a PITA.

    The hardest part tbh. What's your plan here? Some sort of USD/EURO front-end powered by crypto on the backend? Everyone keeps saying how a crypto-powered subscription site will change the game...but when it takes 45 minutes for a first time user to learn where to go to set up a wallet, convert...

    There are dozens of alternatives or similar services out there, many created by big names in the industry. AVN has AVN Stars, LiveJasmin has BimBim, the Centro folks have FanCentro, and there are already established sites like Loyalfans, IsMyGirl(& Guy), MYM, Frisk, JustForFans, Fansly, man I...

    Fastlane Opportunities for Writers

    IDEA HOT! 
    Young adult, without a doubt. As you said, it's has a broader range of accessibility. Plus, if you can get teenage girls onboard, you've "made it." You don't necessarily need fantastic prose to appeal to the audience (Twilight, 50 Shades), and in some genres, you don't even need an editor (urban...
