YNOT – Video on demand has become an essential component of successful online business strategies in most entertainment fields, but particularly for adult webmasters. In truth, VOD offers benefits to both buyers and sellers. Consumers enjoy being able to bypass monthly membership fees and pay for only the material that’s most interesting to them, and many content distributors have discovered they actually make more money if they offer their wares a la carte.
The part of the equation that continues to puzzle some distributors is finding a VOD platform that suits their unique desires and needs. Webmaster Central believes it has found the solution: a tool that allows clients to build their own VOD websites.
“This is something new, just in time for the upcoming Phoenix Forum,” explained WC Chief Executive Officer Andy Alvarez. “Our clients can now connect their own billing technology provider straight to their leased Webmaster Central content through our XML gateway. That means they can start charging members for content by the download or per-view, which opens up a whole new level of revenue.”
The new pay-per-download features allow WC clients to charge for downloads or for streaming, and they’re particularly appropriate for website operators who want to use a token system, Alvarez said. Each WC client sets his own prices and keeps 100 percent of his sales.
“This is a really flexible solution, so if you can think up a cool concept for a pay-per-scene adult website, you can get it done with Webmaster Central,” he said. “All of our content is tablet- and mobile-ready, so if your focus is on mobile, then this is a solution for you, too.”
Webmaster Central staff members plan to demonstrate the system during The Phoenix Forum, which will take place April 4-7 in Tempe, Ariz. Forum attendees who would like a private demo of any WC features may email the company and request a meeting.
