Another few months on since my last blog and we”re shooting content again, albeit wearing PPE and using a remote camera system to ensure we adhere to the governments new health and safety guidelines. The new rules are actually very easy for us as a production company to work to but for obvious reasons almost impossible for models wanting to create duo content.
As a company we did consider requesting a clean covid19 test to go along with the usual sexual health certificates but the information we received from UKAP was that these test would only be done privately and would cost performers £225, as you can imagine we we’re met with a wall of silence from the performers.
The current global health crisis has seen a huge number of new models and content creators enter the business. To ensure they stand out from the crowd, we’ve been delighted to welcome a host of new performers that have commissioned us to work on their branding, marketing and social media. The feedback we’ve received so far has been excellent and our clients sales platforms seems to reflect this with one in particular jumping from 80 paid subscriptions to over 500 in just one week.
We have also been engaging more with the adult studio’s and producers to offer our unique services to them, this seems to be a an area we will pursue more over the next few months and will hopefully have an exciting announcement coming over the next few weeks.
The MILFMAFIA and PORNOMEDICS brands are now picking up pace and the monthly subscriptions are reflecting this, and have plans for the KINKBIBLE brand to launch early in the new year.
As always thanks for reading through the blog and we hope you enjoyed the update.
Another few weeks of lockdown but things seem to be starting to ease. The recent announcement by the government is giving a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel and with the recommendations coming from UKAP (UK Adult Producers), it looks like we will be shooting solo content very soon.
As I mentioned in previous blog posts, this time has given us the opportunity to launch new services we’ve had on the burner for a while and with the current extension its now given us the time to launch our own adult websites.
For anyone that’s started an adult website, they’ll know it takes time, effort, money and content for a successful launch. Whilst most of these have not been the issue, dedicating enough time to create what we really wanted has been. Even choosing whether we self host and take our own credit card payments or use established platforms that handle all that for us has been a sticking point.
After numerous emails and phone calls with content platforms, and established producer friends, we were offered a special deal that would give us the time to create content without having to spend too much time on the daily running of the sites. We also negotiated a percentage rate that we were extremely happy with and would enable us to let each website stand alone.
The first two sites will be launched over the next few weeks with a further three before the end of the summer depending on how quickly we can collate the content needed. This will give us enough content to see if the websites are a viable option for us.
To enable us to do this we are making a few changes to our work practices and will now be offering models a content share option to work with us on our new brands. If you’d like to work with us please contact us via the contact form or our Twitter page @skullfuka .
We’re still locked down here at Skullfuka towers but have taken this time to test the waters on a part of the business we were looking to launch next year. The adult industry has always been a trailblazer in marketing and advertising since the birth of the internet, but us Brits seem to lack finesse compared to our American counterparts.
I talk to lots of successful British models and always like to ask where the majority of their customers come from, the usual answer will almost always be the UK. Now this can come down to many factors including time zones for cam girls, the platforms they use to sell their content or that they’re using “Comic Sans” font over a badly lit selfie and customers have seen that same shit for the past 15 years.
So as an experiment we’ve dusted off Photoshop, put on our branding and marketing hats and made some Twitter headers and flyers for some of our regular models. The feedback we’ve had so far is that it seems to be making an impact. The models have said that engagement is up and that they’re attracting followers from further a field including Europe and America.
Yes, the British adult entertainment business is miniscule compared to America’s multibillion dollar porn economy but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t at least try to make an impact and get some of that income flowing this side of the pond.
If you’d like to discuss your branding and marketing requirements with us please get in touch via our contact page, alternatively we will be adding another page to the Skullfuka website to offer this service over the next few days.
But please, stop using Comic Sans!
