Tips on extending your private shows

Top 10 Tips on Extending your Private Show Lengths

Tip 1 – Learn about your customers. This may sound like a simple thing, as many girls who start webcamming, are more interested in just getting the job done and miss the whole point of getting to know the customer. When you forge a relationship with your customer, he may come back 5-6 times a month and spend his money on you, as opposed to once and never again. We suggest making social media accounts to interact with these customers, even when you are not on cam. Building this persona will develop a stronger relationship between you and your customer. Remember, the more you know about your customer, the more you can keep them engaged and enjoying your company. Once you develop a relationship with your customer, you can chat about their day, their dislikes/likes etc, not only does this keep them at ease and happy, but it makes the time go buy faster.

Tip 2 – This feeds into Tip 1, try to show personality as much as you can. Just because you are not face to face with your customer, you may be cam to cam with them. This means you should be smiling and interacting with them. Don’t just blankly stare at them waiting for them to make the next move. Try starting your next private off asking ‘So what do you like?’ When you ask questions like these, the customer has to take the time to answer and is showing them you have a caring/warm personality on webcam.

Tip 3 – Depending on the action of conversation you were having in free chat, Do not stop doing that, just because you were taken into a private show. Perhaps your customer was attracted to that action or conversation. Extending it often will keep them engaged for longer than stopping the action.

Tip 4 – Don’t always assume that once you get into private show mode, that you have to get naked right away. If you take your clothes off, start masturbating and orgasm within 60 seconds, guess how long your average private show will last? 60 seconds! Slow it down, interact and get to know the customer and ask him what he likes. Ask lots of open ended questions like ‘what is your favorite part of my body? or ‘why do you like it when I do this’. Once you know more about your customer, you can always try to sell them a custom video content.

Tip 5 – Ask the customer if they have a webcam, waiting for them to switch it on, will allow you to really get to know them better, make sure to compliment them. People like to be complimented!

Tip 6 – Move slowly. Don’t move like you are obviously stalling, but move sensually. It can create a nice buildup for the customer when you crawl to get into a better position. Be sure to use those hips and slow hand movements up and down your body. He won’t be able to stop watching you.

Tip 7 – You don’t have to over do it, I’ve seen countless models, screaming so much it’s ridiculous. This isn’t a turn on for the customer because they can obviously tell its fake. The more natural and authentic you can be with your customers, the more they will enjoy the private show and the longer they will stay.

Tip 8 – Try to go above and beyond your customers expectations. You can always ask out of the box questions that will surprise him, when he answers try to keep the conversation going. It’s important to want to win him as a friend, sometimes it’s not just about getting the private show, but making him feel better about himself. Often these customers are lonely and save their money to communicate with an attractive female. These customers want you to be interested in them. If you do this correctly, you will start to see the customer returning to follow up with you, even when they are not horny.

Tip 9 – Ask the customer what their name is, this is always a great way to engage the customer, many customers don’t want to be referred to by their username (anallover88). You can create a much stronger connection with them if you know their real name. Maybe even give them your real name (if you are comfortable). This builds a bond.

Tip 10 – The best tip I can give you, If you are in a bad mood just take the day off. You are only impacting your bottom line and you will not able to hold privates no matter what you try. ūüôā If you don’t want to be there, your customer won’t either.

Adult Friendly Payment Options

Webcam Payment Options

In the adult industry, there are several different payout options that you can choose from that are adult-friendly. The main ways to get paid in the adult industry are through Payoneer, Paxum, by check, wire transfer, or CMB¬†paycard. When cashing out on various cam sites, clip sites, etc. most give you multiple options for how you get paid. With that said, you still may encounter several sites that only offer one payout option that works for you. When first getting started, it isn’t a bad idea to sign-up on the different payment processor sites so you’ll be able to get paid quickly if you end up having to use one.

The first site is Payoneer. Payoneer is becoming increasingly more popular in the adult industry. Many of the big cam sites, such as Myfreecams¬†and Streamate allow you to choose Payoneer as your cashout option. Payoneer is a good option whether you live in the United States, or are an international model. Basically, they set you up with a prepaid card that you can load money on. It works just like a regular bank card, and can be used to make regular purchases at the store, or to withdraw money from an ATM. There aren’t many fees associated with Payoneer. But every funding source that you link in sets their own fees for loading payments. Some sites don’t charge anything, some may charge a small $2.00 fee for a standard 24-hour payment, or $5.00 for expedited 2-hour payment. When you choose to get paid on a site by Payoneer, that site will appear on your Funding Sources page. From there you’ll be able to view any fees associated with using them.

Paxum is another great, adult-friendly option. Again, it’s easy to get started with them and there aren’t many fees associated with cashing out. Paxum is very similar to PayPal, except you won’t get your account shut down for using them for adult like you would with PayPal. If you have your own website, you can make a storefront and put custom Buy Now buttons below your items. When clicked on, your fans will be taken to a page where they can pay for your item(s) via Paxum. You can also use Paxum to charge for Skype shows. Paxum is the perfect option for independent models looking for an adult-friendly payment processor.

Most cam and clip sites will also allow you to cashout via check or wire transfer. Getting paid by check generally has smaller fees, or no fees at all. Most sites send out checks to models in the United States for no fees, and with small minimum payouts. International check by mail is available on many sites to select countries. Again there is generally no fee, but the minimum payout is higher. If you want to connect your bank account so that payments can be deposited directly into your account, you can use a wire transfer. On many sites, wire transfers are available whether you’re in the United States or an international model. Generally the minimum payout is very high for a wire transfer. I’ve seen it range from $200 all the way to $1000 on some sites. The cashout fee is usually higher with a wire or bank transfer as well.

If you’re using a cam site such as Naked, you can choose to get paid via CMB Paycard. They make it really easy to sign-up and link your model account directly to your CMB account. The fees associated with CMB Paycard are very minimal. Like a Payoneer card, your CMB Paycard can be used at any ATM or bank location to withdraw your funds. You can also use it for electronic billpay.

Selling Tangible Goods

‚ÄčSelling tangible goods is an easy way to earn extra money. ‚ÄčThere are so many of your personal items that guys are going to be willing to buy. Whether it be used panties, toys, stockings, autographed photos, heels, baked goods, etc., there is a market for pretty much anything you can think of!

There are several different ways to go about selling tangible goods. The first way is through your own website. Often times you’ll earn a higher percentage when selling items on your own website than you will if you sell it on other sites. It helps to post a few pictures of the item so your fans know exactly what they’re getting. If you’re selling an item that you wore or used in a video or photoset, you can reference that content. You can also use your blog or social media accounts to promote the items you’re selling.

It’s always a good idea to sell your items on as many sites as possible. This will gain you exposure and increase your odds of making sales. There are lots of different sites that offer the ability for you to sell your tangible goods on. ManyVids, CamModelStore, and¬†ExtraLunchMoney¬†are some of the big ones right now. On these sites, you can upload pictures of your items and add a description if you want. You keep 60% on ManyVids, 80% on CamModelStore, and 60%-65% on ExtraLunchMoney.

Some camming networks, such as Myfreecams and Chaturbate¬†let you sell your items on their site. You can list your products on your profile page, as well as mention during your live cam shows that you have items for sale. Some fans will pay for the panties or toys that you use that day on cam if you mention that they’re available for purchase.

When listing your items for sale, you’ll want to include as many details as possible. Several pictures from different angles or pictures of you personally using the item is a great way to show the condition the item is in and exactly what it looks like. You should also mention how the item comes. Basically if you clean the items before shipping or send them “used” (worn for a certain number of days, played in, stuffed, perfumed, etc.). Giving the customer the option of how they want to item to come is a good idea too. That way whoever purchases it can have it to their liking. Also be sure to include any sizing info, defects, and what countries you’re willing to ship to. You can also mention that you charge extra for international shipping.

There are so many different items that you can sell for profit. Be creative. Give different items a try and see what sells. It can’t hurt to try! Make sure you list your items on multiple sites in order to get the most exposure. And be sure to include pictures and descriptions of the items you’re selling. Good luck!
