Hello everyone! I am back from my vacation and ready to ring in 2016 in style with my beautiful girlfriend and some close friends in Denver, Colorado of all places. I wanted to take a minute to talk about my 2015 for a minute if you don't mind.
I have really become a well oiled machine in terms of my entire operation from front to back. There is so much work and knowledge that goes into successfully running your own corporation and I have been learning on the fly for 3 years now.
I launched PURE-TS in mid January and it is now my baby. I have seen it grow each successive month in both joins and rebills. Every time I think that it can't continue to rise...it does it again. I want to thank everyone who purchased a membership and please know that I really appreciate it.
I launched PURE-BBW in late July and although it got off to a slow start, it too has picked up and become profitable. I am trying to reach my goal of 100 joins plus rebills by July 2016. The hardest thing for me is finding local BBW models. I need more variety and so I am going to attempt to put more effort into finding new models for the site as well as shoot more threesomes.
I launched PURE-XXX in early November and it contains 150 content trade scenes with all sorts of models. I am not really looking for very many joins to this site, but I still think the quality is fantastic. Moving forward it is going to have a lot of POV handjob and blowjob scenes on it. I think the low join and rebill price makes it an attractive buy for consumers.
I shifted my focus to these three websites and away from my CLIPS4SALE store in 2015. I am now putting up my new content first on my sites and then in my C4S store, which is a switch from how I have always done it. We will see if it works.
I am continuing to put out my scenes on the VOD sites. I now have 76 movies in my catalog with another 6 coming in January! I want to thank AEBN - HOT MOVIES - GAME LINK - ADULT DVD EMPIRE and ADULT RENTAL for being fantastic VOD partners.
I am doing some affiliate stuff, but only with TS partners who are also affiliates of mine. That being said, I want to thank Steven the owner of Grooby for being far and away my best affiliate. He has always been a sort of unofficial business mentor to me, and I appreciate his help and advice. I want to thank SHEMALEMODELSTUBE for being a great affiliate as well.
Special shout out goes to the smartest little TS I have ever met in this business Natalie Mars. She is not only beautiful and super cute, plus loves getting dicked down, but she is also a very intelligent girl. She is only the second model (I'm looking at you Kelli Lox) to join my affiliate program and promote her scenes while making additional income from her TUMBLR and TWITTER.
This was the year when I stopped working for all the other companies and began to focus 100 percent on my own products. With one notable exception. ISLAND DOLLARS is not only a fantastic affiliate for me and I also make some money promoting their sites LADYBOYS FUCKED BAREBACK and LADYBOY GOLD, but they also fly me out to Thailand and I get to shoot 15-20 scenes at a time with gorgeous ladyboy's for their sites. I am extremely appreciative of our friendship and partnership and I look forward to continuing that in 2016.
In 2014 I shot 92 scenes for other companies and 127 scenes for myself. In 2015 I only shot 47 scenes for other companies and shot 144 scenes for myself while still earning over 80 percent more than I did the previous year. That kind of efficiency is what drives me to work harder in 2016. Having been a workhorse male performer for so many years, never in my wildest dreams could I have foreseen a year where I did less scenes and earned more money. Amazing.
I want to thank all of the models who shot with me for my TS site in 2015. I met so many interesting, beautiful, and fantastic people this year. Treasure Barbie, Miran, Natalie Mars, Taryn Elizabeth, Brooke Morgan, Jenna Ranee, Sami Price, Kara Lynn, Oriana Frost, Luna Rose, Dona Abelar, Amanda Jade, Alexis D'vyne, Red Vex, Alexa Scout, Paris, Kitty, Sadie Satanas, and the great Mia Maffia were all amazing performers.
I want to thank all of the models who I have known for years and still have a great relationship with and continue to shoot scenes with - Tyra Scott, Aubrey Kate, Robbi Racks, Trixxy Von Tease, Wendy Summers, Juliette Stray, Becca Fatale, Natassia Dreams, and of course Delia Delions.
I want to thank all of the BBW models that I met and worked with this year - Apple Bomb, Lola Lovebug, Christy Live, Alexxxis Allure, Lila Lovely, Bella Bendz, Roobi Royal, Sweet Cheeks, Bella Artista, Becki Butterfly, Lady Lynn, Lexxxxi Luxe, Mazzaratie Monica, Juicy Jazmynne, Kitty Nation, Klaudia Kelly, Danica Danali, and of course my favorite BBW that I respect and love dearly - Eliza Allure.
I want to thank all of the XXX models that content with me as well. Karen Fisher and Alura Jenson will always be my two favorite ladies to spend time with on and off camera on set. They are pure class and sexual energy and I love them both for it.
I want to thank my friend Isabel for stepping in and shooting some kick ass scenes for me in San Francisco and for being super sexy and fun. If you ever need a quality still/video girl look no further than HERE.
My production guy Damien is so integral to my operation. He is such a hard worker and go getter. We have a fantastic working relationship and that's so key when I need him over 100 times a year. He shoots AMAZING still photos and his VIDEO quality is superb as well (just too many cuts hahaha). He has never let me down in over 2 years now, and he is constantly outdoing himself on my behalf. I value him greatly and always will.
Last but not least, my girlfriend Lexi Sindel is the rock in which I rely on. She is just so knowledgeable about all things relating to the running a website, shooting content, and doing backend things. I would be completely lost without her. She gives wise counsel and listens to me rant about all sorts of nonsense. I love her with all my heart and I can not believe to this day that I was lucky enough to find her. She has completely changed my mental state, my outlook on the future, the way I work, the way I live, and the way I love.
Have a fantastic New Year's everyone and good luck to you all in 2016.
