SapphireFoxx.com Subscriptions

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 25, 2013, 5:30 PM
Over the last two weeks, it has become very clear that ad networks are no loner the way to go. Each one I applied to either declined me or paid next to nothing.

So, I'm here to announce that all my future content will only be available to subscribers of my site. Each month I'll be releasing three new animations, and 30 comic pages for only $5. You can signup for a subscription here:www.sapphirefoxx.com/membershi…

For those you without a credit card, you can still signup for a subscription as long as you have a bank account. You'll need to link it to a PayPal account.

I know many people were concerned about suspicious credit card statements showing up that they wouldn't want family members to see. I've addressed this by having all payments be handled through PayPal, and any charge from my site will appear as "SF Creative Arts".


Miss Stewart by SapphireFoxx

I've just released a brand new animation called "Miss Stewart". Since this is the first time I'm making an animation exclusive, I went well above and beyond what I normally do in an animation to make this as awesome and as sexy as I could. It's over seven and half minutes of TG-goodness with a heightened level of sexy deviousness. The animation is about an over-achieving student who gets turned into the hottest teacher around, and gradually begins to enjoy his new career and body.

Shifting Roommates is also back with two new pages. Like before, there will be a page uploaded daily. The first eight pages will be the available to everyone as a preview to the series, but all the pages after that will only be available to subscribers.

My next animation will be about a guy turning into a bridesmaid for his sister's wedding, and it will be out in 7 to 10 days.

I'm very sorry to all the people who are unable to become subscribers for whatever reason, but this is the only option I have left if  SapphireFoxx is to survive. I hope that only day you will be able to join and catch up on the new content you'll be missing.

Hey, dude if you're looking for alternate payment options look at what this guy did: mr-dna.deviantart.com/art/Ange…

Just simply charge 5-10 bucks per link(and so as not to exclude you premium members possibly let them have half price on the chain), and Badoom, a cheap easy and not too time consuming way to make money. 

You may not even listen to this, just giving you ideas for alternate payment options if the site goes down the toilet.

Hopefully you make sure to have exclusive content you never intend on releasing even ads go back up.

corrections on previous comment:

for the second Idea of still having the subcribing system in place I want to clarify in case I misunderstood

you release the work at the normal time for the people you payed for the subcription and you release it a second free an other sites like Deviantart but a month after it's original release so that the people who can't pay will simply have to wait until you grace us with you godly manuscripts ;)

Hello sapphirefoxx I regret to inform you that I will no longer be able to follow you anymore because of this new payment system, but I've followed you for a while now and I'm not quite ready to give up. I was hoping that you could instead of doing automatic payments for everyone you could instead do donations instead. Everytime your going to come out with something you can label the price and set up a donation box until you have the needed amount and then you send the finished work. I know it's asking a lot but this way me and other people like myself who are not in a situation to pay can still be able to see your work and you still make money from the people who want to keep you around. Another idea would be to keep the subcriber system and just release you work a month or two after  you finish it so that the people subcribing get first viewing rights and the rest of us will just have to wait for you to let us see it. this will still put you in the hands of you your fan base but I have faith that enough people want to keep you around that they will subcribe and you can still have a donation box for when you get low. I know this asking a lot from you so I'm only asking you to consider these and any other possibilities so that we can all still follow you

Gas stations and the like also have pre-paid paypal cards. These are useful to people who would rather directly deposit funds without linking to a bank account. It also allows some more anonymity.

Will we be getting some breif previews of your animations? I will definitely get a subscription later, but in the mean time would like to see a bit of what I will be getting. It may help me get a subscription earlier than later.

I shall subscribe when I arrive home without fault (around 5 pm ish Canada Eastern Time ;) ).

I suggest you occasionally make free things. For example, make still (2-3 maybe) images which preview what's in store for people without revealing more than the initial stages). I don't know how well www.tgcomics.com is doing, but they have some things for free and some premium items. They also have a forum among other things. You could occasionally make a poll to see if people are liking what you make and see what the people want to see in priority, while not neglecting the less popular things if they still have a good amount of people if those choices aren't too expensive in comparison to the amount of subscribers wanting it (50 subscribers X 5$ = 250$ income for a particular choice might be nice, though if 200 subscribers x 5$ = 1000$ income, that choice could be prioritized). 

And what will probably work is if you have an awesome fan base ready to support you throughout your adventures. Love the fans with all your heart and they will love you back ;) (though being good with publicity, marketing and organizing stuff efficiently are all very useful too)

What if you were to still post commissioned work on DA? It would still get you noticed on DA, and then you could occasionally post something about a new animation that will be exclusively on your website (most likely some longer story that isn't commissioned). And I want to say that I'm really hoping you continue to post Stealing from Sis updates, it would be really nice as someone who's watched from the first episode if I could see how it ends (I don't have the money right now for a subscription, I would if I could).

Okay, to all the people complaining about the subscription
...Its FIVE dollars! Are you really going to complain about FIVE DOLLARS a month? You know its going to Sapphirefoxx and if you have read his journals you know that he is trying to make a living. Shit, a months worth of his work and all you have to pay is 5 dollars and people are freaking out. I can't believe how incredibly rude some people are that they just expect free content from someone who is trying to make a living doing these, and then just peace out when things get tough for him.. Some fans huh?

People are stupid with money. You know what you can buy with 5 dollars? Some candy, probably a Starbucks coffee. 5 dollars, for one month. That coffee or candy won't last you a day. Sure, 60 dollars seems like a lot... Until you recall that's the price of going out to a movie with your family. Once. for 1 1/2- 2 1/2 hours. Year long entertainment, plus the support of an artist... the money is pitifully small. Minimum wage earners could pay for it. I only earn 2 bucks above minimum wage and I have enough to buy 3 yearly subscriptions from one paycheck.

But, people want free things, and they want more of them because they are "free."

It's not really a money problem with everyone, it is that they have the money, but they don't have a system to transfer zed money over the internet. Pay Pal is probably something people can look in to. But if your like me and you'd like to keep this secret from people you know, its harder for other people to do than you.

That's a smaller percent of people. Only a small group have bank and credit card statements looked over by judging individuals, and that same group also overlaps with minors. I won't go into the politics of whether or not minors should be allowed to access porn (regardless of how "hard" it is), but just say that the people who are concerned that others will find out are in a smaller number.

Now transfering money over the internet,  that does have some credibility behind it... except it's so commonplace now with places like Amazon. Having an aversion to it will not serve one well in the future.

I honestly don't want to pay $5 a month to see your content. (It's not that I don't like it, but I don't have a job and don't get money very frequently). But it's all you can do to keep your dream going and I highly respect that. I'll pay as soon as I can and will probably join around Christmas/Haunakah. (One side of my family is Jewish and the other side is Christian). Till then, I'll be anxiously waiting. :)

This is a suggestion.  At the beginning of each month, or once every 2 weeks, after you get back on your feet again, you should have a "Free TG of the Week", with the TG being there for only one week.  Thats way your non-subscribers dont feel left out and there would still be a reason for people to subscribe.

I highly doubt that you will be able to make enough money from this to survive. If we are going to be very optimistic and say that all 209 people that said they will subscribe actually will, and will be loyal, you will still only be making a grand total of 1045 dollars a month, or half the paycheck you will get from working as a cashier at Burger King
I am sorry to say so but that is just not sustainable.

The poll on the site itself has been far more accurate compared to the DA one. There's already well over 209 people already to subscribe in less than a day. At this rate, the site will become fully sustainable again.
