Pink & White Teaches Porn Performers How to Market as Affiliates
SAN FRANCISCO (December 9th) — Progressive Bay Area porn studio Pink & White Productions has launched a workshop series designed to teach performers how to make extra money from their scenes by marketing their work with affiliate programs. Specifically, to help performers get “more buck for their bang.”
The workshop is part of Pink & White’s new educational program CRASHCOURSE, an ongoing project featuring short informational videos by director Shine Louise Houston, and workshops that cover a myriad of topics, including technical information, filmmaking skills, marketing strategies, and performer advice. Guest presenters include Nina Hartley, Lyric Seal, Jiz Lee, and more to come.
CRASHCOURSE: More Buck for your Bang is a monthly workshop beginning January 2014 held at Pink & White Productions’ studio in San Francisco, CA. The 2-hour class is free to past performers of the company’s projects (such as CrashPadSeries.com and HeavenlySpire.com), or a $20 pre-registration fee for other members of the Bay Area adult community. Sliding scale entry is available to people with low-income on a case-by-case basis. The workshop offers an introduction to using affiliate programs, hands-on assistance with online marketing tools, and consultation on marketing campaigns and social media strategies.
Lead by Pink & White Productions’ Online Marketing Director Jiz Lee, the workshops are supplemented with weekly drop-in Office Hours, where Jiz provides one-on-one support, in person or online for those located outside the Bay Area. Jiz has over eight years of experience in front and behind the camera, and has been an affiliate of Pink & White Productions since the program’s inception.
“So many performers think that payment ends with the scene. While it’s true that porn doesn’t pay royalties, almost every paysite or retail store has an affiliate program for webmasters. Sometimes it’s as easy as signing up and adding a link on your website or Tumblr. It doesn’t take much effort to make an extra couple hundred a month on scenes you’ve already done.” Jiz says. “Plus, it encourages fans to pay for porn, and supports porn companies. I’m surprised more performers aren’t taking advantage of these programs. So I’ve decided to help people learn how.”
