4 minute interview with JT The YouPorn guy

 

Welcome JT, as the founder of YouPorn.com and sites such as FakeTaxi.com PublicAgent.com MassageRooms.com and both networks FakeHub.com and SexyHub.com it's great to have you as our first Adult Industry CEO to be interviewed for this feature. With your time in the industry and all, you have achieved it's great to get your thoughts and tips for people entering this industry.

QUESTIONS:

1. The last few years have been a difficult period for many businesses, so as a business person, what tips have you learned during this time?

That data is the undisputed king. Without studying your user behaviour and analysing your user data, you are pretty much p*ssing in the wind. You need to track everything, social media being key. It doesn't matter if you have 20m monthly visitors or 20k, understanding that data is the difference between success and failure in today's current market.

2. What is your most important advice for business people who are just starting out?

Do something different, gone are they days of simply doing something better. And don't be afraid to launch a MVP (minimal viable product). You will learn so much from what traction you do see, and engage your users. The vision you see for your product may be totally different to what your users actually want/need. You could save $$$ in wasted development.

3. The crowdfunding market has been growing year on year recently, how do you see this sector moving forward next?

Crowdfunding is fun. I have been an angel investor for quite some time and had a few successful investments to date. I'd like to see the minimum investment levels lowered as that would bring in a whole new crowd of potential investors, young millennial's included. There is a huge wave of young aspiring entrepreneurs out there, setting a price point that they are comfortable with investing would reap rewards. Most of these kids are geniuses at social media and they could create a huge buzz around your product. 

4. What tips would you offer to entrepreneurs think of using crowdfunding in their business model?

Be honest, be realistic, and be open to receiving advice from your investors. I never invest in anything where I have not spoken too or met the founders. It's very important that I am able to make a judgement other than reading a blueprint investment deck.

5. What is the most important lesson you learnt from working in the adult sector?

That you should never use your real name, and that reputations are everything. 

6.  What is your favourite fruit?

I love to spend time devouring a lovely juicy peach.
