Buddy Profits Sponsors GAYVN @ Internext 2015 Seminars

LOS ANGELES—AVN Media Network is pleased to announce that leading gay affiliate program Buddy Profits will once again be the exclusive seminar sponsor for the upcoming GAYVN @ Internext trade event, which takes place concurrent with the Internext Expo 2015, January 17-20 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas.

Building on the success of last year's GAYVN @ Internext, show organizers have created a seminar program designed to address the salient issues facing the gay online industry today, while also helping companies develop winning strategies into the future.

The seminars are in addition to other networking events planned for GAYVN @ Internext, including Gay Speed Networking, a partnership with the popular Hustlaball mega-party, and other exclusive events.

"Once again, Buddy Profits is pleased to be the exclusive gay seminar sponsor at Internext 2015," said Buddy Profits Managing Director Hector Camacho. "As the leading gay affiliate program with over 40 of the world's best-known online adult gay brands, Buddy Profits is pleased to sponsor an important part of the conference, which will offer an unprecedented lineup of special guest speakers and events targeting the gay market."

Timothy Ferencz, coordinator of the event for AVN, commented, "We are extremely pleased to have Buddy Profits back as our exclusive seminar sponsor. It makes sense that the leading gay affiliate program would partner with the leading gay online industry event on a program of serious seminars for the gay online industry. Buddy Profits is a company that appreciates the fact that we have scheduled two days of seminars rather than a token effort, and we appreciate them for that!"

Next Door Buddy Profits was founded in October 2006 and started with just a few sites. Today, it offers affiliates over 40 premium sites with more to come. Next Door Buddy Profits offers webmasters 50 percent rev-share or $35 pay-per-signup.

How to Improve Member Retention

11 a.m.-12 p.m.

Retaining current paysite members is increasingly important in a world in which fewer and fewer people pay for porn. Keeping those who do is what this seminar is all about. Whether you have your own merchant account or use third-party processing, whether you target a specific niche or run a large community portal, member retention is in everyone's best interest, especially the member! Improving member retention also improves new member signups, as well, so this seminar is for anyone who wants to improve both retention and growth.

The Contours of Gay Content

1-2 p.m.

The type of content that gay producers around the world shoot is constantly changing, due to a variety of factors that themselves are in constant flux, influenced by changing markets and new, often disruptive technologies. So how are producers deciding what to shoot, who to shoot, where to shoot, and what new genres, story lines or niches they are planning to explore? Is the future in features, scenes or something we have not yet even envisioned?

It's an App-App World!

11 a.m.-12 p.m.

This seminar is about how the very real phenomenon of hooking up intersects with the adult entertainment industry in ways that already do and will continue to generate very substantial revenue. These technologies and the social trends that they are built on and exploit are so powerful and so influential that no one with a stake in the industry can afford to ignore them. This is a seminar that will benefit from questions from the audience.

Join a panel of some of the most experienced and successful industry leaders as they discuss the prevailing issues and trends that face the industry as it heads into 2015.
