National A-1 and HotMovies.com Story
National A-1 has been in business for Eighteen good years
They own and occupy a 40,000 square foot office building in Center
City, and employs over 370 people.
The National A-1 client roster includes movie studios,
television advertisers, and others who place ads in various media
and want National to handle our calls. This arrangement is similar
to an Internet affiliate program.
On the Internet, this company owns a variety of sites.
Some of these are Clips.com, Spanking.com,
Diet.com, XXXVOD.com, VOD.com and their most popular
and famous HotMovies.com.
They are the largest provider of Audiotext
services in the USA. Using Audiotext, National A-1 offers
voice personals, virtual chat, and live one on one phone
conversation with paid professionals. National’s main
Audiotext service is virtual chat. Men pay from .45-.69 a minute
to connect with women who call free. Our advertising appears in
over 200 publications of all types. National A-1 is also a
major service bureau for many companies who utilize National’s
Audiotext services’ credit card processing capabilities.
After several years of operating traditional, membership-style
websites (including Girls.com, Kinky.com,
Teens.com, and many others) in December 2002, National A-1
decided it was time to offer a new billing model to Internet
Users. By then, it had become clear that the primary payment
method, which relies on monthly billing, cross sales, spam and
other nefarious tactics was clearly losing steam. Conversion and
retention rates continued to fall proving that customers want to
pay as they go. Knowing this, The company chose to leave the traditional
website billing model behind and kept this model for only a few of
its sites. It then took many of its premium domains and pointed
them to Affiliate Programs and pay-per-click search engines.
Simultaneously, National launched our most successful
Internet site, HotMovies.com. At the time, there was only
one large competitor in the field. National strongly
believed there was room for another company to embrace the
Video-On-Demand, Pay-Per-Minute, and the soon-to-come,
Pay-As-You-Go billing models. National also felt it could do a
better job than its competitors.
From the start, National’s goal was to create
quality websites to which customers wanted to return over and over again. National
A-1 also wanted their customers to know immediately
that what they get is a good product at a low price point.
HotMovies.com was just the key they needed! It lets people come and go
as they please and gives them what they want: A chance to "watch
what they want, when they want to watch it - or get in, get off
then get out!!"
HotMovies.com now offers over 100,000 movies from over
924 of the top adult studios - with new releases daily - featuring
the hottest adult pornstars! HotMovies.com is a non-membership
site with no monthly fees ever. You will never be billed without
you paying first and any unused minutes are banked and saved for
Stan Gibell, National A-1 Content Administrator points out... “People can watch our
movies at any time from any location for as little as .08 cents
per minute (US.) Customers simply choose a HotMovies.com
time package and receive the number of minutes they want so they
can watch all or parts of over 100,000 xxx movies from the privacy
of their own home at any time. Gibell continues, “Recently we added Celebrities.com,
HentaiVod.com, and VOD.com to the mix of sites that
use these crowd-pleasing billing models. Looking further down the road, Gibell expects Microsoft
to soon introduce the Media Player. The Media Player will let
customers connect their computer to their TV sets. “In five to ten years, declares Gibell, “The majority of
people will no longer buy or rent DVDs as they do today. They will
click on specific content residing on their computer and it will
play on their television sets.”
