Give us your best guess

As in turnover I assume you mean? Or value in asset/url name?

Offline lovingfacials

I would hazard a guess as its difficult to value an 'intectual property' idea like AW...............Facebook/Google have massive value due to the global nature of the buisness and the potential to sell to the traffic  global brands

AW whilst global will not have the traffic nor the marketing potential..........of course it can link to some prodcuts and service providers but nothing mainstram bringin in serious money

It may be a cashcow for selected people creaming off PG/Movies etc  and through w/g fees when advertizing onthe site but as a whole I would be surprized if it genereated real income - so pure guess not knowing its traffic levels...........£200k

im guessing 500000 to maybe 1 mill

Based on? traffic? sales of p/g or fees?

thats a lot.............not saying your wrong but if you work on a mill, thats what £80+ per month., thats a lot of fees and a lot of galleries..............

I dont know there charges but I would expect its low fees high volume.......and whats the split with AW & THE W/G on a purchase of her gallery  is it an equal split??

Your estimate sounds a little high but then again with so msany varribles mine mught be soooo low that your right

Seeing the amount it makes every day off private galleries, available today, escort/webcammer/group/directchat of the day etc as well as just phone number display and featuring plus 30% of every credit that goes through on there as well, I shoudl imagine they make a fortune every year.  I would not like to hazard a guess as to how much they were worth from a buying viewpoint but from their earnings lets just say I would not say no as they have to be raking in a close to a few million a year just from UK users

well i was working on the idea that an investor would expect (in property) to achieve 8% on his investment
So at 1mill .
Thats only £80000 a year or £1540 a week profit
 If profit is only 20% of turnover thats a mere £7700 a week turnover .

obviously half that lot for £500000.

Achievable ????

Any attempt at valuing Adultwork has to take into account their monopoly status, for thousands of men it's their only way to find WGs and thousands of WGs have an Adultwork page and do not advertise anywhere else.

Also because of its complicated ownership structure, it must pay little or nothing in tax.

Anybody wanting to buy Adultwork would have to pay a few million pounds at least


I have considered how much I might have spent on local newspapers and phone calls before finding a suitable lady, whereas now I can see photos and plan ahead so AW is worth a great deal to me, and it is really unquantifiable. Without it I would not have so much fun, even with its drawbacks and fakes.

I hope it is not for sale.

well if its 2 million and i win the lottery id buy it in a flash ......

A few million pounds ????????

For much less someone could set up a rival site to compete with them.

auto-censored thought it was untouchable, in the dot-com world things are forever changing, even facebook could lose it's crown five years down the line.

Many people have already set up sites to rival Adultwork.

All have failed.

Many men still use Adultwork as their primary or sole resources; it is that fact which gives Adultwork its monopoly power to crush any competing sites.

Maybe they failed through lack of finances.
Any rival site would need to undercut them, no charges to pro$$ies for the first three months, we all know that pro$$ies love something for nothing.  :hi:

Fuck all to punters!

I see its a Malta business? Or at least for web design

Even if its only 2k a week its a nice penny for the owner

I don't deny that they are earning a small fortune but it is a business that is very hard to value.

I wonder what the "Dragons" would have to say about it.

I imagine the first thing they would point out is that you don't have a "patent" on the formula and anyone could set up in competition, that is why I would only value it in tens of thousands rather than millions.

Just had a quick look on AW.

Currently around five and a half thousand members displaying their phone number, I think thats £1 per day.

Similarly around one thousand members showing as available today (I remember looking at this pre-Christmas and the figure was more like 1800) - and I seem to recall that was £5 per day.

Assuming the lower figure for available today - thats still £10,000 per day coming in (less fees of course) and thats before you add on the split of PG/Video sales, reverse bookings, featured escort, member of the day etc.

Put it this way - I wouldnt mind 1% of that :-)

how about some links, maybe some of them are worth a look?

I'd consider 2 values.

1. With the traffic, worldwide exposure, £5 million valuation guestimate.

2. Actual sales price would be up 30% less as it's a buyers market.

I've advertised on a few rival sites and they offer free listings. But they have very low traffic in comparison to AW. And as a punter you will get the same mixed bag of quality of girls as you get on AW. Don't think they'll have any better quality or fraud controls as aw.

Let's suppose your estimate is correct, that would pretty much rule our a private buyer ----- and big corporations like Yahoo and Google wouldn't touch it with a bargepole.

At 10k a day thats a commercial value of over a million 3x annual turnover

Couldn't all you guys club together and buy it yourselves. Then you'd take better care of it and throw off the scammers.

Add in the uniqueness of their brand, little or no competition, future business value, no risk.

This could easily make the multilplier a lot more.
