SAN FRANCISCO — Gay production company COLT has completely revamped its flagship website, COLTStudioGroup.com. Members and affiliates can access updated content from COLT, Buckshot, Olympus and COLT Minute Man lines, as well as many bonus features.
“We have been working well over a year to create a site that brings our historical and abundant library of over 40 years of images and movies directly to our fans and members in the easiest, most current and highest-quality way possible,” COLT Online Marketing Director Sean O’Brien told XBIZ.
“We have redesigned the entire site for the ultimate user experience,” he said. “All our galleries, live-cam men shows and movies are available in Flash format which means no matter what operating system or browser the end user is on; they will be able to enjoy our offerings without having to worry about any additional clunky or awkward downloads or plug-ins. In addition to our pinnacle content, we have live-cam shows almost daily from our COLT, Buckshot and Olympus men from all around the globe.”
The live area features webcam shows with COLT exclusives, as well as a community area that has blogs from several COLT models. The fan forum feature allows members to send messages to other members and models.
The streamlined redesign enables easier navigation for users. Members can view unlimited movie content with the site’s new video-on-demand theatre.
According to the company, all new title releases will debut online and in DVD format simultaneously, and members will receive a 15 percent discount at the COLTStudioGroup.com online store.
The studio also has revamped it’s affiliate program, ColtCash.com.
“Our program includes not just the COLTStudioGroup.com site, but our eight fan sites dedicated to our men as well,” O’Brien said. “Of course, there is much more to come. We plan on offering our webmasters streaming clips from our movies, galleries and photosets.”
The solo men sites available through COLTCash.com include CarloMassi.com, AdamChamp.com, GageWeston.com, LukeGarrettXXX.com, SkyeWoodsXXX.com, DeanPhoenixXXX.com, MitchBranson.com and DarinHawke.com.
Webmasters receive 50 percent payouts on signups and recurring memberships.
“This site is the definitive experience,” O’Brien said. “Although we have been working hard for the past year, our work has only just begun and we continue to grow our top-rated sites and affiliate programs to bring our members and webmasters what they have come to expect from COLT Studio Group and all its wide range of product lines.”
