LOS ANGELES - Briana Banks, former Vivid contract star and multiple AVN award-winner, has re-launched her official website, brianabanksreloaded.com to coincide with the launch of own company, Briana Banks Entertainment, LLC. Banks' company is a subsidiary of the newly formed Starlet Entertainment Group, which is comprised of a group of mainstream angel investors.
Located in the heart of downtown LA, Briana Banks Entertainment is looking to bring a new energy and focus to the adult industry. BBE wants to bring a fresh approach to what is known as the “contract girl” in the adult arena. Banks controls her own company and staff, having an input into everything from her website development, photographers, location shoots and on-site staff.
“I’m extremely excited about this new venture. Briana Banks Entertainment will include my newly launched website with new content, new movies, and soon to come - live cams, dating, and a direct connect with me,” Banks said.
“I’ve implemented new products for members on my site including a social network platform which allows for fans to connect with me on Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Flickr and several other social sites around the world. It’s important for me to let fans know that I want their feedback on my work and I love that they demand to see more of me. Connecting directly with them allows me to bring them more of what they want on my site.”
One of the features on Banks' new site, the social network platform - provided by 11 Amps - allows for her latest vignettes, photos and behind the scenes to be uploaded to various social networking sites on a weekly basis. Her new website also promises to bring fans her previous award-winning scenes and candid moments with Banks when she's out and about.
Banks will officially announce her website to the adult world at the Playboy Mansion Lingerie party on Tuesday, at which her angel investing company, Starlet Entertainment Group will be one of the host sponsors.
“I am thrilled to be a part of a company that allows me to utilize my production experience and knowledge in adult. It’s exciting to be able to pick my co-stars and upcoming contract girls for the company,” Banks said. “It’s been a thrill to launch my very own company and website that I helped to develop and implement – brianabanksreloaded.com is truly the official Briana Banks website because I created it. Anything else out there isn’t the true product."
Briana Banks Entertainment, the flagship company for parent Starlet Entertainment Group, will be signing on new girls creating new subsidiaries and bringing on new websites in the upcoming months. “We are extremely lucky to be working with Briana to launch our company into adult. Briana brings brand equity and experience that we were looking for when we formed SEG,” said Jessica N, president of marketing and affiliates, “Briana is the president of her own company, Briana Banks Entertainment, allowing her to not only make strategic business decisions, but also to allow her a complete piece of her company. We want to change the way contract girls are treated in the industry.”
Banks will be helping to grow her own company along with parent SEG’s new company girls in the upcoming months, making appearances and conducting interviews to find fresh faces in adult. SEG will be launching its own affiliate program, Starletbucks.com, in late May, which will support brianabanksreloaded.com and other websites that will launch in 2009.
“We’ve already partnered up with some of the most reputable companies in adult, and look forward to working with many of the other experienced adult players in the industry,” said Jessica N. “We all can help each other make money, and we hope to do just that for our current partners -Video Secrets, Gamelink (to name a few), and especially Epoch, who was monumental in helping us prepare to launch our first website.
"It’s companies like that that hold a higher standard in customer service and account representation that will help us to be successful, and we in turn will help them through the success of our implemented future strategies."
N. continued, "In these uncertain economic times we want to partner with other adult companies rather than compete for traffic, and that means finding unique and savvy ways to get the customers to your site and retain them for a longer period of time. We will be looking to form partnerships to do just that in 2009, including mainstream co-branded marketing initiatives that we’re going to aggressively implement.”
Starlet Entertainment Group, located at 626 Wilshire Blvd in Los Angeles, is headed up by angel investors with experience in the mainstream entertainment, hospitality and legal industries with additional offices in Las Vegas, Nevada, and is continually growing their company and subsidiaries in the adult arena. The SEG staff has over 15 years experience in mainstream and adult industries including studio and talent management, film production, event management and affiliate program expertise.
