As you know, we started out the new year by promising our Model community transparency and support through these difficult times. Not only has the world, in general, experienced change and transformation in the last year but the adult industry, too.
For the last three months, Pornhub offered a payout bonus to our Models to show our appreciation for your patience, suggestions, and dedication while we continue working on reinstating credit card transactions.
We’re extremely pleased to announce that we’ve been working on ways to increase your revenue on a long-term basis and to help compensate for paid content and subscriptions. As of April 1st, 2021 (no this isn’t an early April Fool’s prank!) ad revenue for free-to-view videos will be increasing by over 15%, continuing to be the highest ad revenue payout of any adult site.
We currently pay out 80%+ of the ad revenue that your video earns, and that's based on the performance of the ads around your video. And now with the over 15% increase, free-to-view videos continue to be a great way to earn money on Pornhub and grow your own brand with the help of 150 million daily users.
To increase your ad revenue even more, don’t forget to turn on “Exclusivity” to bump it up another 5%. Remember, when you opt-in for Exclusivity, it simply means you’ll earn more and we’ll help protect your content (click here for more details.)
With the change of ad revenue, we will no longer be doing the additional bonuses (click here for the last bonus announcement). However, this ad revenue is a permanent addition and change that you can depend on.
Here’s a breakdown:
- Ad revenue will increase by over 15% for free-to-view videos
- This continues to be the highest ad revenue payout of any adult site
- This is a permanent change for the Pornhub Model Program
- You can increase it by another 5% if you opt-in for Exclusivity, which will also allow us to protect your content (click here)
- This ad revenue will continue even if we reinstate credit card transactions
