Perfect the webcam model snapchat takeover.

There are a lot of things to be said about snapchat takeovers. Sure, it’s yet another platform and some might be thinking it’s just another pain in the ass app taking up space on your phone in order to stay legitimate in the social media world. However, the truth of the matter is that snapchat can be a GREAT way to market yourself and broaden your fan base, and if you learn to network with other accounts, you can uncover a social media goldmine.

Snapchat Takeovers are a not only a great way to gain new followers, but it can also be an extremely easy way to increase your revenue and let your fans gain a little insight into your “personal” world. Takeovers are awesome because you can build quick brand loyalty by letting them “hang out” with you for a day, let new people know who you are, and pimp out all your other social media accounts/links, yet time and time again I see models letting their takeover day slip by them without taking full advantage of what they have at their disposal.

There are a few things that are important to take into consideration when doing a snapchat takeover. The first being that everyone and their brother is going to ask you to do one for them. This is when I’m going to be very clear and let you know that all snapchat takeovers are NOT created equal. It’s important before agreeing to take over an account, to think about what you are willing to do for your time on their snapchat. Are you going to do an actual show? Are you comfortable with saying yes if they want you to show nudity? How many hours do you like to have control of their account for?

It’s a good idea to write down a list of how you run your takeovers. There will be some people who treat it like a business transaction, and others who are just wanting to call you the dreaded “sweetie” and “hun” and let you know that they can really help you out! *eyeroll* (If it isn’t self explanatory, the latter are the people who you should avoid.) In my experience, they are usually fanboys who think that they are “pros” in the industry because they run a couple social media accounts and have the ability to take advantage of naive girls. Not cute.

The key is to treat takeovers the same as you would any other aspect of your business. It’s not only networking but also a business interaction. You are supplying your brand for them to promote their snapchat account, and in turn they are providing you with marketing. By treating it in a strict business fashion, you will attract more of the mainstream accounts (Redtube, Pornhub, Manyvids etc.) and I can tell you from experience that those accounts are the cream of the crop in regards to takeovers. Pornhub alone has over 120,000 views on their snapchat so getting a takeover like that is a huge boost to your social media game, as well as to your brand as a whole.

What Questions to Ask When Asked to do A Takeover:

-How many views do they have? (Obviously this is an optional question, but if it’s under 1,000 views I don’t feel like it is worth my time.)

-Are they okay with you responding to messages or would they prefer to have you stick with purely posting on the storyline. (This is one that I didn’t ask at first, but you WILL get bombarded with messages and some people do not like it if you are opening them.)

-Let them know what you expect on your end from a takeover. (ex. How many hours you’d like to have it, whether or not you show nudity etc.)

-Schedule the takeover in advance. This way you can set up any deals you want to run, and have a day planned where you can devote your attention to the takeover. (Personally I schedule at least 1 week in advance)

Keep in mind that if something happens where there is a scheduling conflict, that it’s the right thing to do to let them know that you won’t be able to do the takeover. Don’t just NOT do it on the day of, I’ve seen that happen before and it looks so unprofessional.

Once you have the actual takeover scheduled then it’s time to prepare. It makes me sad to see the lost potential that happens on so many takeovers because the models aren’t using the platform to their advantage. They snap a few snaps, say hi, act cute, yada yada… but they don’t engage their audience. They aren’t CONSTANTLY reminding them of their social media handles, they aren’t running sales or spending all day on there posting an almost obscene amount of snaps. The fans want to be entertained, so entertain them damnit!

Tips for the actual Takeover

It’s important to let them know a little bit about you before you start throwing links and sales in their faces. Introduce yourself, post some silly snaps of your morning routine or some sexy snaps of you being a bad ass bitch. If you’re allowed to answer their messages, let them know that you will be answering their questions throughout the day, that way they know to start sending them. Throw out your Twitter/Insta/Snapchat handles so they know where to follow you. Then, right when they bite onto the bait on your fishing line, start reeling them in.

BAM! 50% off my premium snapchat for today only! Go HERE: xxxxx.xxxx

Then post more teasing snaps, answer a few more questions….

BOOM! Premium show tonight! See it by going HERE: xxxxx.xxx .

You get the idea. I also recommend only using one place for them to get your snapchat, If you can do one simple link for ALL of your stuff even better. People like easy, so if you have a link that says vitametavegamin.supercalifragilisticexpialidoscious.com/findme/snapchat/premium/modelnamehere, chances are they aren’t going to take the time to type it in. Streamline it, shorten it, make it easy to remember. The $10 you’ll spend a year on a domain name is going to pay itself off in no time. SNAP(modelname).com or PAY(modelname).com Easy to remember, easy to type in.

Now, I know what some of you are thinking. “It’s only snapchat, I would rather spend my time on making money” If you’re one of the ones thinking this, then you are not realizing your earning potential. At all. My highest earning day ever was on a Snapchat takeover. I brought in over $3,000 alone from sales of their fanbase in a single day. So excuses are just that, excuses.

If you aren’t sure where to start, post on your social media that you would like to do takeovers and tag promoters. Start networking and messaging accounts asking them if you can do one. Once you start, the offers will come to you. 🙂

Webcam Whitelabels

Whitelabels: The Ins/The Outs and Why You Should Have One

If you’re a camgirl, then you probably know about white labels already, and like most other models in the business have a deep rooted, intense hatred for the affiliates of white labels and everything that comes along with it. Of course by saying “everything that comes along with it” I mean the horrible affiliates that are usually behind the scenes of the white labels, screenshotting your pics, recording your shows to upload onto tube sites, and being a general pain in the ass when you decide that you want them to take down your videos. (DMCA’S BITCHES!)

I know, and I agree with the fact that some of the affiliates that are the ones running these white labels are complete jerks who have no idea what it’s like to be on the other side of the industry. (Side note: This isn’t always the case. It’s one of those, the few bad apples make it harder on the rest of them) All they care about is the bottom line and making money, which is understandable. However, my motto in life is “If you can’t get out of something, get into it” and that applies here just as much as any other place.

White Labels are a part of the camming industry. It makes sense. The cam companies are, in essence, paying affiliates to bring traffic to the site by giving them a percentage of all the sales that they bring in. There are white label opportunities for almost every major cam site, and there is no reason to limit yourself to only one, but just for the sake of streamlining this article, we’re going to focus on Cambuilder.com, which is Streamates whitelabel program. There are a couple reasons why I am choosing Cambuilder, one of which being that it is the white label I use, as well as being the most popular option out of all the affiliate programs out there.

There are five options that you can choose from as far as payouts go on Cambuilder.com.

35% Lifetime Revenue Share

$75 per spender + 30% Lifetime Revenue Share

$30 per join + 30% Lifetime Revenue Share

$100 per spender

$40 per join

All of them have their pros and cons, but if you’re in it for the long haul for long term passive income, 35% rev-share for life is the best plan overall.

Regardless of which whitelabel you decide to use, the inner workings are all pretty much the same. They will offer you a rev-share of the sales that you bring in. As a model, it doesn’t make sense to NOT take advantage of this. Even if the only time you promote the white label is when you are getting online, if you get sign ups it guarantees that no matter who they spend on, you are making money. (In Cambuilder.com’s case, 35% off every model they spend on, which would be the exact same as if they were spending on you.)

After the sign up, it’s a relatively painless process. You, of course need to purchase a domain name for your white label. This can be whatever you wish for it to be, but keeping it simple and easy to remember is going to be your best bet. After you have the domain name purchased, it’s time to set up your white label. On Cambuilder.com it gives you easy to use templates that let you customize the look and feel of your site. It’s literally click and point easy. You can upload your own logos, change the color theme, change the size and the look of the models icons,etc.

After that first step, the next step is going to be promoting your white label. A lot of models that I know only use their domain when they are getting online. While that works wonderfully, I feel like it is a missed opportunity. The second that I got a white label, I reached out to other models who either had one themselves, or models on the site asking them if they would be okay with me promoting them….I haven’t had a single one say no yet.

This brings me to my major point. IF YOU ARE A CAM MODEL THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE A WHITE LABEL. Look, nothing is going to change overnight. There are always going to be the asshole affiliates running the white labels that bring us the shitty traffic, treat us like dirt and give every other affiliate out there a bad name. But if you can’t get out of it, get into it. If you don’t like something, then be part of the change. Think about how different it would be if models all created white labels and traded promotional material. Not only are you supporting each other in the industry, but all of a sudden you have so much more promo available to you then the affiliates that only have your shows they recorded, and have models breathing down their neck to take them down. Add on top of that fact that, as a model, you have much more incentive to give people for signing up. “Sign up, spend $5 and get a free vid!” Kind of deals, that will start having checks show up in your mailbox without you ever getting on cam. Passive income ladies, now let’s all get together and get rich. 😉

Webcam Model Forum etiquette

webcam forum etiquette

Cam Model Forum Etiquette

There are tons of forums out there, maybe you have experience with most of them, but then again maybe you don’t. Hey, I’m not one to judge. At least until you start to wile out like you’re the mean girl in a 1980’s movie. (Trust me girl, that is never okay and people WILL be laughing at you if you’re actin’ a fool on forums for everyone to see.)

On a serious note, if you haven’t ever checked out forums, there are some that can be really helpful. Just a quick google search and you will be able to open up a world that you never knew existed. An entire community of other sex workers that support each other and become lifelong friends. There are forums out there that let you interact with your fans and create new fans with a really immersive community type feel, and industry forums where you can network with hundreds of industry moguls.

That being said, there are definitely things that you need to take into consideration when you’re deciding to sign up and become an active member.

Before starting a new thread to start a topic or ask a question, make sure that the answer isn’t already out there in another thread.

I have seen newbies on forums torn apart because they didn’t take the time to look around and read the previous threads, or do any research on their own. I hate to say it, but most of the time it’s a thread started about the simplest question, where the answer has been talked about a million times already.

Here’s the deal. All of us take the time to get on these forums and give advice, offer support, share our tricks and tips with people (newbies to the cam game included) so it’s almost like a slap in the face when someone comes on the forum that no one has ever heard of and doesn’t take the time to put a little work into figuring out some things about breaking into the cam industry on their own.

Don’t take it personal. You need to understand that it seems as though every other week there is a wave of new cam girls that come barreling in thinking that it’s all rainbows, sunshine and butterflies shooting out of our asses, over here. They think they’re going to make $3000 their first week out, and all it takes is an ass smack or a titty shake.

Pro Tip: Just because you’re pretty and cute and all the boys in your high school wanted to bang you, doesn’t mean that you’re going to succeed as a cam model. So for someone to walk in and expect us to give them the secrets to success like it’s a spirit stick from Bring It On (the original, obviously) is insulting. If we all did it the hard way, so can you. Especially since you might not last more than 2 months once you realize it really isn’t all that easy. At the end of the day, every model is our competition and the fact that we all decide to get on and share trade secrets should be respected, not taken for granted.

Use your time wisely, read the forum and comment in other threads for a few months before starting your own. Become a part of the community and you’re going to have a much better result.

Always make sure to read the TOS for the forum.

This sounds like an easy one to remember, and maybe it is and people just decide to break the rules, but either way please do yourself a favor and make sure that you know what is and isn’t allowed to be talked about before you start rambling off at the fingertips.

Understand what type of forum you are on

If you’re on a forum where there’s a group of sex workers that all talk and support each other, make sure you aren’t posting threads and trying to spam for promotion or with referral links to your affiliate sites/items. That’s rude, and disrespects the safe space that they have created and culminated for so long.

If you’re on a forum where the key point is to interact with fans, then make sure that you are actually taking the time to talk one on one with them (Great example: FreeOnes) and utilizing the platform to recruit new fans and build some solid relationships. That’s why the guys are on there, to be able to talk to their favorite porn stars/adult models, not to just read post after post about what’s new on your website that they should join.

If you’re on an Industry forum make sure that you are keeping it professional. Everyone enjoys a good laugh, but if you start spouting off without regret, you will create a bad name for yourself very quickly, word will spread and people will not want to work with you. You never know when you’re going to need connections so networking is a really important piece to building any career. Don’t burn bridges unnecessarily.

Treat everyone with R-E-S-P-E-C-T

I feel like this one should definitely go without saying, but *sigh* some people these days just don’t know how to do this. I’ve said this before and gotten the “Well, you have to give respect to get it” line. Everybody deserves respect to start with, until they give you a reason to take it away. So when someone is genuinely trying to help you, or pointing something out about a rule on the forum, don’t respond with a snarky comeback.

Take all advice (yes even constructive criticism) and use it to improve. Whether it’s by NOT using the advice given or by actually using it. It still will teach you what/what not to do… and we can always be improving our craft.

So go out there and start to network and become part of the forum world communities. If you need a list of the top webcam forums for webcam models, you can click here. There is a lot of fun that you can have and a lot that you can learn. Just don’t be a giant twat waffle about it.

The Webcam stage five clinger

The Stage 5 Clinger

We’ve all heard of them, and most of us have probably either been one or had one…. but just for the sake of this conversation, we are going to pretend that we all need a definition, and what better source than our trusty friend Urban Dictionary?

Stage Five Clinger: likely to become overly attached, overly fast. Virgins, those on the rebound, and the emotionally fragile are more likely to have this term applied to them.

Example: “Dude stage five clinger just text me again, she wants me to spit in her mouth.”

As a cam-girl, you will inevitably run into approximately 1 to 1 million stage five clingers through the span of your career. It’s just statistics. *shrugs* Some of you may be sitting there wondering whether or not you have one already? Don’t worry, you don’t. Trust and believe that when you do get one, you will know without question. I like to think of the stage five clingers as an occupational hazard. Something that comes along with the territory of the profession that we have all chosen to be in. Are they fun? Hell no. Are the entertaining? Of course not.. Well, sometimes they are, but usually only because you can’t believe the lengths they go through to have attention.I have banned many a clinger because they don’t know how to abide by rules, and they take so much energy that sometimes you have to stop and ask yourself “is the juice really worth the squeeze?”

Stage Five Clingers aren’t your normal attached regular, though at first they might fool you into believing that they are just like anyone else. They will weasel their way into your snapchats and your cam rooms like the slimy, tricky little buggers they are, so let’s go over some of the signs to be on the look-out for.

1. They become Entitled Little Bitches. Let me elaborate. They start to form feelings and think that they are in an actual relationship with you, so they can’t understand why you don’t spend every waking moment talking to them or giving them something for free because they’ve “given” you so much. Which brings me to..

2. “But I’ve given you so much” Cue the eye-roll, please. This is a classic line and will be used in some shape or form at some point. This is where you need to be clear at what the difference between “giving” and “purchasing” is.

3. “Babe, can’t I just have it?” Any variation on this phrase, even a hint of them trying to get something for free after they’ve been loyal spenders is a sure sign that they are starting to feel like they deserve special treatment, and also a big red flag to let you know that you should RUN. RUN FAR AWAY. (unless clingers are your thing.. In which case. JACKPOT!)

4. No Sense of Boundaries .. and when I say no sense, I mean NO SENSE of boundaries. At all. You will start to realize that for some people it is a necessity of reminding them that you are running a business and when you are talking to them you are working. Yeah, it would be nice if this was an unspoken rule, but people forget that your time is money, so it’s extremely important that you maintain the control of everything at all times. I once had a guy call me on Skype at 5AM in the morning for no reason except to test his feed and say hi. (Aca’scuse me? Are you out of your mind, bro?!) BLOCKED FOR LIFE. Didn’t give him the show he was supposed to be receiving the next day and sent him a very long email explaining why he was no longer going to be a client of mine and how crazy it was that he thought he had the right to call me whenever he wanted. Do not EVER be afraid to say “Having the ability to talk with me/contact me is a privilege, one that you can lose and never be able to gain back.” Anyone who has a problem with that is a giant douche and not worth your time anyway.

5. Gets possessive and jealous when you go private with other clients. I feel like this should go without saying, but please, for the love of god, do not let any person get away with this BS. I don’t care how much money they have spent on you, or how much you actually like them. It is one of the highest levels of disrespect (in my opinion) for them to think they are more important than your other clients, or your money.

Now, originally this was going to be the part of the article where I delve into all the different ways that you can handle stage five clingers, but now that I think about it, there isn’t really much to delve into. You either put up with them and hustle them for all their worth and then cut them off when they stop spending, or you cut them off before they can even start. If you’re not sure which way is the way for you, see what you’re able to handle without wanting to blow your f’ing brains out. Maybe your tolerance level is that of a saint and you will be able to take on all the clingers of all the lands while taking all of their money.. and that’s what the main point is. Don’t ever let a clinger come between your money and your time. If that happens- they have gone too far. Money over bitches, every damn day.
