The World According To CuriousCash

Your Really Have To Know (Take #2)

Hi There Everyone !

 

Lots of VERY important stuff in this edition (which is why it is a few days late)....

 

We have had problems with our hosted galleries, but you do NOT miss out - even thought we have been ridiculously stung with massive bandwidth overage charges, the links will still work through to sites for YOU to get 100% credit for ALL of your traffic - PLEASE SEE THE FULL STORY DIRECTLY BELOW......

 

There has also been much panic and a real "sky-is-falling" attitude about the new 2257 proposals and the way the US Government seems fixated on trying to destroy the adult online business- we at CuriousCash have NOT been sitting on our hands on this one so, DO NOT panic and read where CuriousCash are at and what we are doing also down below in this update !  Obviously more to come on this in future editions !!

 

Next door you will see we have reproduced a summary of all the responses we have received to the CuriousCash Webmasters Survey - and a big thanks to all of you who took the time to respond to us !  Your time and effort spent in helping us make the program better for all of you is MUCH appreciated.

 

Over the next couple of issues we will be addressing just HOW we intend bringing much of your wish-list from the survey to fruition - our evaluation of our new back end system is almost complete - and I know you all agree that we must get this right first time !!  Next week we should have some big news to bring to you !!

 

Now it seems crazy, but we are only nine (9) short weeks until Internext (http://www.internextconference.com) in Hollywood Florida !  WOW !  Time just gets away from all of us doesn't it ?

 

The CuriousCash team will again be there in force, and we are again sponsoring some of the HUGE Gay Webmaster events.  We look forward to seeing many of you there !

 

There is also some MASSIVE news upcoming for CuriousCash - but it is ALL top secret at the moment, but be sure that our affiliates will be the first to know of the breaking news when the time is right for us to release the exciting future directions that recent negotiations and agreements have led to.

 

So, apart from getting all of our internal systems straightened out to be the best they can be for you, our future expansion and direction is set to explode !!

 

On all counts we will keep you posted !!

Your Say - Results Of The Curious Cash Webmaster Survey !

Well here it is - a compendium of your replies to our webmaster survey !  Next week, we shall tell you what actions we are taking to pick all of his up in our revamp plans !!

Should we continue to develop more and new sites?

The consensus on this was yes, as long as it does not detract from the sites that are currently on offer.
As stated by Ian "Too many sites can also be a hazard, it may make them less full, less of a recurring billing product and I think that too needs to be clearly defined. Sites that sell good is fine but not if the webmaster is signed up on a revshare versus simple one time join payout. Too many sites might lead to less rebills."

Should we continue to look at micro-niching our offerings and how often would you like to see you new sites released?

- A lot of requests came in for us to expand through Micro- niching. Basically I think the webmasters have decided they have seen enough sites of similar content from us and would like something new. One suggestion was a Shaving Website. "I search for a web site with shaving action for boys and men, shaving their pubes, dick , ass etc.  If you can make that is a plus, because I can't find a good web site with this fetish."

Should we pursue looking at trials across our sites, or should be retain our previous "no trial" strategy?

Generally people liked the idea of us adding trials. However only if the payout return was worth it. Majority would like the choice to be made up by them to whether a trial appears on a site or not.

Should we be dedicating more time to increasing this diversification process? If so, what other areas should we be looking at for you?

Majority of the Webmasters told us diversification is good, just as long as we keep an eye on what we do well.

Do you think the migration to NATS is a good idea? What, if any, additional marketing tools would be of benefit to you?

Alright, Alright we hear you load and clear. Our backend needs to be completely revamped. Expect an announcement soon on which direction we will take. Currently we are down to 2 options one is MPA3 and the second is a program called ZBan.

Do we communicate well with you? Would you like to also receive our general press releases we issue from time to time? Are we easy contactable and do we respond quickly enough when you do contact us?

Some think we are good here and some do not.  I would have thought with the endless hours and vast array of contact methods we had as well as our weekly updates we would have done alright here. Oh well, better go back to the drawing board and see how we can improve.

ADDITIONAL REQUESTS WHICH WE HAVE TAKEN ON BOARD FOR CONSIDERATION:

1. The webmaster area is way too slow loading for me. Most other sites like even AEBN or Bel Ami load extremely quickly. The stats at the beginning maybe should go elsewhere and be more flexible.

2. Banners - IT IS hard to really download a whole whack of them. perhaps a zip file option containing the complete banner set for a site would be of help.

3. Banner Refreshing's - to be blunt, they need to be updated. Not so much animated but showcase more of the talent instead of the same model for all of the sites or several sites.. Different sites should use different models and I also think that you need more 'skyscraper' banners.. 120x300 120x400 and even 120x600 plus perhaps 80x300, 80x400 etc.

4. Banner Names - I know this is small but if a webmaster is promoting more than one site, it kind of helps if you actually name your banners teen-boy-models or -cute-teen-boys instead of just 468x80a It can be confusing to some or add to their work load by either having to rename the banners or in placing them in a different directory. so site specific naming of banners would be a help. (while some may use initials like say TBM for teen boy models, I'd try to use three to two words that are also keywords.. hey the SE's do pick on that. so while more work, a good plus for a truly savvy webmaster and they are the ones who will push the sites more than the casual one.)

5. Better explanations within the webmaster section of what everything is. I mean I see this emails collected and it keeps changing each month, but what the heck is it? Does it make me money? If so how much and when does it get paid?

6. Text Copy - Not many offer this but for those that do, it helps in the conversions. I mean a webmaster rarely goes inside a members area of a site they are promoting, so for them to come up with good sexy SE ad copy is very very difficult. You guys know your sites, so it would be a big big help for webmasters to have text phrases available for use in promoting the various sites.

7. Better linking options. By that I mean give us the webmaster a choice of linking to the tour or to the join page directly. Also insure NO POP UPS.. that to me kills a lot of potential sales.

8. 30 second video clips for promotion

9. Independent site reviews

10. Cut n Paste Java Script with live Updated Content

11. Geo-Targeted Ads.

12. Hosted TGP sites

13. Surfer Focused Forum with link codes for the banners within the forum

14. Hosted Free Sites


Now we already offer a few of these things and a few are already on the drawing board at Curious Cash.

In the next few days an announcement will be made of which way we will be going for the backend of CuriousCash and from there we will be able to tell you what will be built in as part of the software and what we will look towards including over time.

Thank you so much to everyone who sent their replies to this survey - ALL that is listed above will be considered and we would expect that the vast majority will be implemented on "as-we-can" basis.

Your Really Have To Know ....

*** IMPORTANT ***
Free Hosted Galleries Temporarily Removed From Curious Cash - You Still Get FULL Traffic Credit !!

Due to some MAJOR issues with one of our hosting companies we were recently forced to remove the Free Hosted Galleries from CuriousCash.

YOUR FREE HOSTED GALLERY LINKS AT THE MOMENT GO STRAIGHT THROUGH TO THE APPROPRIATE SITE AND INCLUDE YOUR REFERRAL CODE SO YOU RETAIN FULL CREDIT !!

The bottom line of the problem ?

That hosting company has reported absolutely ridiculous bandwidth overages - many, many 1000's of dollars worth !  They said it was the FHG's ONLY causing the problem - a situation which we could not accept, but have had to remedy to narrow down the problem once and for all.

We were hoping that this issue would be resolved rather quickly however it has not been. We are extremely disappointed that we have had to do this and we are currently pursuing other avenues to be able to once again bring this service back to our affiliates.

We have changed over ALL links so that any traffic that goes to the existing spot of these galleries is diverted direct to the front page of the sites so you can still gain credit for your traffic.

Also anyone who would like a copy of the galleries to host themselves can contact us directly at  webmaster@curiouscash.com who will organize an area for you to download the ones you require.

We are extremely sorry that this course of action had to be taken and we are trying to come to an arrangement which will allow us to reinstate them which will hopefully happen sooner than not later.

New & In The Pipeline

Quick Links

==> MPA3 or Our Own System? New system is almost decided on. A few critical meetings over the next few days and we will have an announcement next week.

==> Custom Exits Due to the change of backend system we are about to embark on, we are holding off launch of this to ensure it integrates with our new system

==> Med's/Rx/Pharmacy program Given the recent global problems with legalities associated with this type of offering, we have decided not to progress with this.  Apologies to anyone who was waiting for it, but the risks associated with continuing just did not stack up for us.

==> BMPoker and PokerRoomCash At last we have some movement at the station !!  BMPoker should be up and running by the end of June, with the ability for you to have your own poker site following soon after !!

==> SMS/Cellphone expansion we have decided on a new provider for our current SMS sites.

Straight Australian Guys Jacking Off

Don't Panic About 2257..

Everyone is having panic attacks about compliance with the impending 2257 regulations.

Right now, we are in the process of talking to our lawyers to find out how we can best make ourselves and our affiliates compliant with the new regulations.

Rest assured, as soon as we know how to most effectively deal with these new regs our webmasters will be the 2nd to know.

We will do whatever it takes to make sure our affiliates can make their sites and galleries compliant by the time the changes in the regs take effect.

The new regulations are set to take effect on June 23, 2005.

However, The Free Speech Coalition is seeking injunctions on both the East and West Coast. These injunctions are very likely (though not guaranteed) to slow the passage of these (or some components of) laws.

In a best case scenario, the courts will uphold the Sundance vs. Reno decision regarding the responsibilities of a secondary producer and there will be no need for webmasters to keep redundant sets of model IDs.

If you are not a member of The Free Speech Coalition (http://www.freespeechcoalition.com), we highly recommend that you become one. They are our first line of defense against an administration that is hell-bent on destroying the adult online business.

Lastly, do not give into fear mongers that are looking to make a buck from this debacle: there is not an acceptable third party whom can keep your records for you (should they become necessary) and the earliest there regulations could affect you is June 23 - donít fall victim to the profiteering that is already running rampant on the boards.

Even if the injunctions fail, the government still needs to set an agency to enforce these regulations which will delay and inspections even further than June 23rd.

Now is a time for vigilance and not panic. CuriousCash will do whatever it takes to make sure our webmasters are covered just as soon as we have been given proper legal advice by our attorneys. It is still very early in this game to predict exactly what the future will hold.

If you have any questions about 2257 please contact toyboy@curiouscash.com and we will be happy to address your concerns !

Insurance Claims

The following are actual statements found in insurance forms where drivers attempted to summarize the details of an accident in the fewest words possible ...

 

Coming home, I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree I don't have.

 

I thought my window was down, but I found out it was up when I put my head through it.

 

A truck backed through my windshield into my wife's face.

 

A pedestrian hit me and went under my car.

 

The guy was all over the road, I had to swerve a number of times before I hit him.

 

I pulled away from the side of the road, glanced at my mother- in-law, and headed over the embankment.

 

I attempted to kill a fly, and I drove into a telephone pole.

 

I had been driving for forty years, when I fell asleep at the wheel and had an accident.

 

I was on my way to the doctor with rear end trouble and my universal joint gave way, causing me to have an accident.

 

To avoid hitting the bumper of the car in front, I struck the pedestrian.

 

An invisible car come out of nowhere, struck my car and vanished.

 

I told the police that I was not injured, but on removing my hat, found that I had a fractured skull.

 

The pedestrian had no idea which direction to run, so I ran over him.

 

I saw a slow-moving, sad-faced old gentleman as he bounced off the hood of my car.

 

In indirect cause of the accident was a little guy in a small car with a big mouth.

 

I was thrown from the car as it left the road. I was later found in a ditch by some stray dogs.

 

The telephone pole was approaching. I was attempting to swerve out of its way when it struck my front end.

The Value Of Money

 

There are several men sitting around in the locker room of a private club after a long workout.

 

Suddenly a cell phone on one of the benches rings.

 

One of the men picks it up, and the answers it....

 

"Hello?"


"Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?"


"Yes."


"Great! I am at the mall two blocks from where you are. I just saw a beautiful mink coat. It's absolutely gorgeous!!  Can I buy it?"


"What's the price?"


"Only $1,500.00."


"Well, OK, go ahead and get it, if you like it that much."


"Ahhh, Thankyou honey !!  By the way, I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the new 2005 models. I saw one I really liked. I spoke with the salesman, and the BMW is 2 years old now... "


"What price did he quote you?"


"Only $160,000 ... "


"OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."


"Great! But before we hang up, something else ... "


"What?"


"It might look like a lot, but I was reconciling your bank account and I stopped by the real estate agent this morning and saw the house we had looked at last year. It's on sale!! Remember? The one with a pool, English Garden, acre of park area, beachfront property ... "


"How much are they asking?"


"Only $950,000 - a magnificent price ... and I see that we have that much in the bank to cover ... "


"Well, OK, but just bid $920,000. OK?"


"OK, sweetie ... Thanks! I'll see you later!! I love you!!!"


"Bye ... I do too ... "


The man hangs up by closing the flap, raises his hand while holding the phone and asks to all those present: "Does anyone know who this phone belongs to?"
