The idea of running an adult entertainment business can be attractive for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is the independence enjoyed by its top executives. Yet with so many new companies arriving then quickly failing every year without fail, it can be hard to earn the trust and therefore the business of established players. Before you can gain traction with your new billing service, model platform, eCommerce store, IT company or software service, you need to prove you're here for the long haul. Trust isn't granted overnight, but comes from running disciplined and persistent campaigns that build your brand slowly over time. In this panel from our ongoing Webmaster Track, industry leaders talk branding, winning 'hearts and minds,' and what it takes to establish goodwill.
