The pros and cons of working in adult entertainment marketing, at least for me.
+ I love my job. For someone who is a weirdo and an introvert anyway, it’s actually a good fit for me.
+ I get to create animated gifs (my favorite).
+ I get to be on the internet all day.
+ I get to learn new things in the world of internet marketing, as it’s constantly changing.
+ I’ve gotten better at writing.
I wonder, would my bio dad be proud? I have a memory of him drawing naked ladies when I was little.
– There’s a high risk of your social media accounts getting suspended. This is what happened to me on Twitter recently. Like if you use your own phone number for work AND personal, then you will risk your phone number being blacklisted. I’ve already appealed to get my Twitter accounts back so we’ll see.
– You can’t really talk about it with anyone unless they’re in the industry themselves or they’re cool AF & open minded.
– Since I create graphics, trying to get another job is pointless as you can’t show any of your work. You would have to make up some dummy, “safe for work” designs just for your portfolio which in my experience, has been a total waste of time.
– The marketing gets repetitive; meaning, there’s only so much sexy shit you can say.
– Your marketing comes off as spammy.
– Spammers and scammers are then attracted to you.
– It’s really competitive and if you’re successful, other people will just copy exactly what you’re doing and basically steal your shit.
Remember: high risk = high rewards. No matter how much the big social media companies try to suppress adult entertainment, people are always looking for it.
About the gif animation:
I made it in Photoshop with 4 frames. So with each frame, you tweak the lips and the chin just a little to simulate movement. Maybe I will write a tutorial on this.
