How much can I earn? 

The answer is – a lot. Depending on how often you post, the type of content, and if you have a niche, there is a real opportunity to make thousands easily from home. Pornhub pays an average of $0.60 per 1000 views on a video. The website offers multiple ways to monetise content such as Pornhub Premium, downloadable content, custom videos, tips, and more. This allows for content creators to branch out and create more content that can be monetised. 

How can I sign up? 

Fortunately, signing up to be a content creator on the website is 100% free. This makes the opportunity accessible to anyone over the age of 18. The website offers an “ameteur program” where interested individuals can join to monetise their content through ad revenue. Aside from that, you can also simply sign up and post content right away, this includes premium content. 

When signing up, you will be asked for a username which is a chance for you to create an alter ego on the website. 

How to make money on Pornhub

The most obvious way to make money on Pornhub is by simply uploading your home videos; however, oftentimes, this isn’t enough for you to make a lot of money. Although it may seem easy, being able to make thousands on Pornhub is not as easy as it looks. Having the ability to market yourself, and create a business plan could potentially push you past other casual creators. 

It is not essential to post sexual content on Pornhub, other content can be monetised too. Some examples of non-sexual creators are Belle Delphine, and Ryan Creamer. Belle Delphine is an Instagram influencer/gamer known for selling her bath water. She made headlines in 2019 for selling her bath water on the internet. She baited her followers by posting videos with suggestive titles, however did not do anything sexual. 

Similarly, Ryan Creamer monetises content on Pornhub through a comedy page which serves as satire to popular videos on the website such as ‘I Deliver You a Pizza and  Don’t Put My Weiner in It’. 

Both creators are proof that Pornhub is not confined to only sexual content. With some creativity, the opportunity is present. 

Sex work is becoming increasingly accepted in today’s society with the uprise of OnlyFans. Pornhub offers an opportunity to create content from home that you can easily convert into cash. Your first few videos may not earn much, but as you gain recognition, opportunities are endless.
