Pornhub and RedTube competition

Adult entertainment websites Pornhub and RedTube are looking to entice brands with their ad inventories with a creative competition offering $100,000 worth of digital space.

The sites, owned by investment group Manwin, have invited businesses, startups and entrepreneurs to compete for their ad space which has the potential to reach their 90m daily visitors - excluding those using ad blockers of course.

Brands are invited to submit potential ads, one optimized for desktop and the other for mobile – highlighting the applying company, product or service in a creative manner. RedTube and Pornhub marketing and sales staff will judge the entries which will have to be under 300KB in size each.

Corey Price, vice president, Pornhub, said: “With nearly 90 million daily visitors to both Pornhub and RedTube, we offer unprecedented global reach and visibility.

Alex Taylor, vice president of RedTube, added: “Whether you’re a budding startup or a well-established brand, advertising on an adult site is a virtuously untouched, cost-effective way to expand your audience.
