Selling Membership Sites: Our Process

Do you own a successful adult membership website? Are you looking for your market exit to move on to other projects or maybe retire? Adult Site Broker’s team of brokers can assist you with selling your membership site through our proven process to deliver top-dollar listing valuation and super-fast transaction closures. In this blog post, the experienced and dedicated Adult Site Broker team will discuss the process for selling an adult membership site or network of membership sites.

What is A Membership Site? 

Let’s start with some of the basics. What is a membership website? Membership websites are web platforms that require paid memberships to view premium content. In adult entertainment, these types have been proven to be highly lucrative online businesses that can be automated to facilitate a steady stream of recurring revenue from adult content. Some of the best membership sites can also be considered premium platforms. But, as long as membership subscriptions are required to access premium content or other “member-only” benefits, these sites serve as a member format. They are also known in the industry as “paysites”.

There are also classifications of membership websites that cross over with premium social media sites and more dedicated fan sites, like LoyalFans, OnlyFans, Fansly, FanCentro, and Just For Fans.

Our brokerage can help you sell your profitable membership website to our international network of respected buyers. We can get you the best return on your site investment with a few simple steps.

Selling Your Membership Site

Our team at Adult Site Broker tries to streamline and simplify selling your membership website. 

If you initiate contact by filling in our online form, we ask that you commit to collaborating with us and be clear about what solutions you require and how you intend to achieve them. 

Be prepared to give us the data we want. Companies and potential clients who contact us often fail to get us the basic information we need, for example, their profit and loss statement. In that case, we can’t help you. We do not wish to waste our time or yours, so we strongly urge that you fully reflect upon what we have discussed before reaching out.

How Should I Prepare?

In this section, we will discuss some of the materials you should put together and how to prepare them. If you are new to mergers and acquisitions, seek assistance from our team and your attorney or business partners. We can assist newbies by buying and selling from the adult entertainment segment. Remember financials, traffic, and NDA.

Don’t Forget Your Content

Do you create or host content? How many videos and photos are in your content library? What makes your site’s content unique? How extensive is your library? Are you licensed to show your content? This is a must. If a site has a non licensed library, we can’t help you. In fact, we won’t touch any illegal content, not only unlicensed content, but content that involves underage performers, animals or other content that is against the law.

In your listing overview, please describe your content library in the best possible way you can. Share with us information that you think is relevant. All information that you provide is vital in helping us out. Sometimes in the case of a membership site, a username and password will be requested so we can review your content. And of course everything you tell is is considered confidential.

Marketing to Our Buyers

Adult Site Broker has been in business for many years. We are the longest tenured and most experienced site brokerage in the adult entertainment industry. Through that experience, we have thousands of email addresses of potential buyers, mainly from events we attend. We have an actively updated email list of over 9,000 people – all established professionals in the adult industry. 

We market the property you’re selling to people we think might be interested. We know the top people in this area, permitting us to spot individuals interested in buying the property you’re trying to sell. For us to get paid, it must go through secure escrow, to insure you get paid and the buyer gets what they’re paying for.  Once a sale is initiated with an accepted offer, escrow should begin.

Our Escrow Process

Greenberg & Lieberman, LLC administers the escrow process that Adult Site Broker uses. They specialize in all aspects of intellectual property law and commercial tort litigation.

The company has a long and successful legacy in domain name continuity and nearly two decades of legal services, including attorney-administered escrow for domain names and assets. According to Greenberg & Lieberman, internet and domain attorney escrow, as the primary process of conventional escrow, “involves depositing money or assets in the control of a licensed independent third party to protect both buyer and seller in a domain or website transaction.”

What is Attorney Escrow?

The transaction is completed when all purchase parties confirm all terms of the escrow agreement have been met, and then the money is fully released to complete the transaction.
