To start uploading videos, create a channel for your studio. You can create multiple channels, but you must have at least one channel set up to upload your videos. Choose a suitable name for your channel and create a short description of it.

Start uploading your videos using the video admin tool. If you have lots of video files, we can upload them in bulk for you.

Add details to your videos such as titles, descriptions, tags, and prices.

You can publish videos instantly or set a date to go live.

How can I make network cash with

Your studio is automatically enrolled into our 'Network Cash' scheme. There isn't any extra work for you to do. Simply upload and publish your content as normal through your Sinxco Dashboard and depending on the video category we will place your content on the most relevant network website(s) for it.

How can I optimize my channels?

It’s entirely up to you if you open just one channel for all your videos or several channels separated by categories or other topics. If you plan to publish videos in different sexualities (straight, gay, bisexual, transsexual) you will have to create at least 1 channel per sexuality.

Choose catchy channel names and add short but powerful descriptions to the channels. Add a paragraph in a second language to your description, just like the multi-language posts on social media.

Choose appealing avatars for your channels. Pictures do better than text. Logos are okay when clean and recognizable.

Make sure that your channel has the correct tags to help people find your channel in the search engine.

Don’t lie to users or mislead them. Don’t use incorrect tags and make sure you are not missing matching ones. It might be tempting to use as many tags as possible but using incorrect tags will hurt your business. For example, it will confuse your customers if you tag a video as a “foot fetish” clip, but feet are not featured in the video! This disappointment will make them avoid your channel in the future. Similarly, if your video is missing relevant tags, customers who enjoy the type of clips you make might not get to see them!

Find a good price point for your channel. There is no general rule for how you set a channel price, but gonzo and porn channels are usually a bit cheaper (4.99 - 14.99), while fetish channels can ask for higher prices (14.99 - 29.99). If you have just a few videos online, it is best to set the price lower too. Channels with lots of videos can probably set a price between 19.99 and 49.99. Don’t forget about discounts too!

How to get started?

Create one or more channels for your studio first. Choose great channel names and create short descriptions of the kind of content viewers can expect from the channel. You have to setup at least one channel to upload videos

Start uploading your videos to these channels, using your video admin tool. You can upload scenes or full movies as videos. If you have lots of videos to upload, ask us about the bulk upload option.

Choose the absolute best screencap of the video as the preview image. You can use the screencaps that we generate automatically during the upload, or you can even upload an image that you created for this video. Make sure your image is in a suitable format such as .png, .jpeg/jpg, or .gif so it will upload

Upload a short trailer to the video. You can upload your own trailer, or you select a teaser that we cut from the movie and play from the starting point you choose.

Then add catchy titles, short descriptions, hashtags, a per video price and optional discounts

Short video titles are preferred. Descriptions should reflect the content in short, appealing and thrilling words. Add a paragraph in a second language to your descriptions, just like multi-language social media posts.

Make sure that your video has the correct tags to make people find your videos in the search engine. Don’t use incorrect tags and make sure you are not missing matching ones.

You set the price and (optional) discount for your videos. There are no set rules on how to price your videos, but gonzo and porn videos are usually a bit cheaper (1.99 - 4.99), and fetish videos qualify for higher prices (4.99 - 19.99). You should play with video prices and learn what works best for your videos. Don’t forget that you can use discounts too!

Follow the hints and tips in the video admin to help maximise your sales. We give you these hints and tips because we want you to succeed.

You have the option to publish the video instantly or schedule an automatic release of your video in the future. You can use the scheduling feature to ensure that your channel has a regular and up to date stream of content.

Production Tips

When creating your videos, decide if you want to have sex involved (porn) or if you want to focus on special interest clips (fetish). Many people call BDSM fetish, but this is just one type of fetish. There are many others out there (e.g. body parts, roleplay, and clothing).

The more passion you bring in, the better the videos will sell. Users can tell if you are really “involved” or just trying to make some fast cash. Attention to detailswill pay back in the long run.

Stay away from extreme specific activities if you are not familiar with it or ask a specialist to join the production. Bondage videos, for instance, need real skills, but you can do great “bound” or “tied up” videos with handcuffs, ropes, cords or tapes yourself. Just make sure you stay safe!

The length of the video depends on the type of content. Fetish works better with an introduction and needs time to reveal its magic. Porn can be shorter. Porn without a story is often called gonzo and does not require much time. Storyline porn is very popular and produced like a fetish movie.

Make crazy movies, but don’t try dangerous or illegal stuff! Check our content rules before shooting so you know what kind of content we accept, and what to avoid.

Book enthusiastic performers and people. Recruit family or friends if you need help with your shoot or equipment.

Good lighting makes a shoot look more professional and is arguably more important than the camera you use to shoot the film. Check online for LED panel lighting packages. You can typically find duo packages that start from 200 USD.

You also need a camera to shoot the footage. Really good 4K cameras start at 450 USD these days (Panasonic). You can even shoot with your smartphone (Samsung, Apple, Sony, Huawei). Don’t forget batteries and memory cards to save the footage. You can check tripods, gimbals and sticks if you have some money left.

IMPORTANT: Turn off any television or radio! You don’t have the rights to the music played there. Make sure to use only music you have the rights to in the post production. This is called royalty-free music or stock music. But read the fine print: often only the producer is compensated but NOT the author. Certain stock music services/products, e.g., can get you into trouble when using them for adult online platforms, your own websites or DVD, so beware.

Don’t forget the paperwork: you need proof of identity and age (ID shot with face, newspaper for date proof and ID/passport of the person all in one picture) of every person visible in the video, the written consent that you can use the footage unrestricted (model release/contract). In the best case scenario, you should also have a written proof of permission to use the location if it is not your own property.

How do I create proper paperwork?

The “2257” or “18 U.S. Code §2257 Statement” relates to the ID shot, which confirms the performer is of the legal age of consent to perform. The ID shot combines in one picture the person, the person’s ID/passport and usually a newspaper to prove the date of production. Find a sample here

The model release describes a contract between the producer and the performers. In this contract, performers usually grant the producer unrestricted rights to commercially use the footage. The contract often includes the financial compensation details, which might be a single payment or royalties. Find a model release contract template here

The location release is mostly requested when it comes to broadcasting for television. But since many productions are filmed in locations booked via Airbnb or similar platforms, the proof of permission is more often demanded by licensees or distributors. It is not a must-have but definitely nice-to-have, if you want to be 100% safe. Find a location release contract template here

How do I prove the age of my video?

For our bonus schemes Content Cash we require a 'Proof of Age'. Create a short video with all performers in the scene, ready to shoot at the location. In the shot we require a perfectly readable newspaper showing the date. You can see an example of how to create a fantastic 'Proof of Age' video below.
