Myfreecams Camscore

How does Cam Score work on Myfreecams?

​Myfreecams is the largest live cam site in the industry with over 15 million registered users.​ With the site being so popular, you can imagine the high number of models that are camming on the site. To really get noticed and get better placement on the site, you’ll need to improve your camscore. The models with the highest camscores appear first on the site. Members can adjust their setting to show models in a different order, but most don’t and the default is by camscore.

When you first start out on Myfreecams, you get a “new model” tag next to your name. Make sure you take advantage of this! Your new model tag will get you added traffic in your room because a lot of guys look for new model. They want to be the first to meet you and make a good impression for when you hit the big times! 🙂 Your new model tag only lasts for your first ten hours of camming, so be sure to check out the site and figure out how everything works before you start broadcasting. This way you’ll be ready to go and won’t have to waste any time learning the site and features. Your first ten hours on cam is when you really need to focus hard on your camscore. If you don’t get it high enough, you’ll lose a ton of traffic once your tag goes away. But if you raise it to a high enough level to get you in the first few lines of the site, you’ll continue to get exposure and new fans.

Your camscore on MFC is based on the amount of tokens (the currency on the site) that you earn over a certain period of time. Your placement on the site is determined solely by your camscore, so it’s important to keep it up. If your camscore is at a level that you’re comfortable with and is getting you a decent amount of paying customers in your room, it’s important to maintain or improve that score. You can do this by setting goals for yourself and not signing off for the night until you reach them. To keep your camscore at the same level, you’ll need to make sure you’re earning about the same amount of tokens every day or week. For example, if you made $1000 one week and you’re comfortable with where that put your ranking on the site, you’ll need to make sure you earn $1000 or more in the coming weeks to prevent your camscore from dropping.

Myfreecams doesn’t tell their models the period of time in which your current camscore is based off of, but they give you this example: let’s say the time period is 60 days. Well if you had a huge day 61 days ago, you may notice your camscore drop suddenly because now that days earnings isn’t calculated into your current camscore. So don’t take days off just because you have one or two big days. Continue to stick to your normal schedule, otherwise you might lose all of the progress you made.

The default camscore for when you first start out on Myfreecams is 1000. You’ll notice it quickly fluctuating your first few days based on how well you’re doing in regards to earning tokens. The median camscore on the site is 600. That means about half the models on the site have a camscore above 600 and half have a camscore below 600. Your camscore is re-calculated every 4-6 hours, but only if you’ve logged into the site since the last time it was calculated.

As I talk about in this article, MFC might not be the best cam site to start off on because of the camscore rating system. I’d suggest trying out another site first that bases your ranking on other factors besides just the amount of money you earn on the site. That way you’ll feel comfortable on cam and already know what works and doesn’t work for you.

Cam Model’s Guide To Periscope

Using Periscope for Webcam Models

​If you aren’t using Periscope as a way to promote yourself, you’re really missing out on a lot of potential exposure. ​Periscope is an app that you can download for Android or iPhone. It allows you to live stream video from anywhere in the world to anyone who follows you. With over 300 million active users, Periscope is a great marketing tool. Nudity and the promotion of adult websites is not allowed on Periscope, but there are ways around everything! 😉

Since Periscope isn’t quite adult friendly, you have to be careful what you broadcast. Wearing lingerie or sexy little outfits is fine as long as your naughty bits are covered. This actually isn’t a bad thing. It’s inevitable that you’re gonna get a ton of guys asking you to “open boobs bb” or “just a quick flash, I won’t tell”. It makes it really easy for you to then transition into letting your followers know that they can find you on your website, cam site, social media, etc. if they want to see more of you. Even though you’re not supposed to advertise adult websites on Periscope either, you can get away with it as long as you don’t mention it every 30 seconds. Bring it up occasionally in your broadcast. Definitely don’t put a website link in the title of your broadcast though. That’s just asking to get reported.

Even if you only get on for 5 or 10 minutes, it’s a good idea to Periscope every day. You can let your followers know what you have planned for the day: like your camming schedule, website updates, or if you plan on shooting new content. You can remind them to follow you on social media, let them know of any raffles you’re holding, contests you’re in, etc. It’s a great platform for making sure your fans are up-to-date on everything you have going on.

While you’re broadcasting, you should encourage your followers to give you hearts and share your broadcast with their followers. To give hearts, all they have to do is tap their screen. Every tap gives you a heart. Hearts don’t really mean anything unless you make it to one of the top hearted profiles, but they’re good for bragging rights if nothing else! Hearts will appear on the bottom right of your screen during your broadcast in all different colors. When you sign-up for Periscope, it links to your Twitter account. When people comment on your broadcast, their Twitter profile picture will show up next to their name and comment. It will be shaded a random color that was assigned to them when they entered your broadcast. That color is also the color that their hearts will be.

To keep your broadcasts fun and to encourage interaction, try to do something fun with your followers. A simple, but fun game to play is to think of a question about yourself. Tell your followers that if someone gets the correct answer, you’ll remove an article of clothing. Sometimes I’ll have them guess the color of my bra or panties and then once I see the correct answer three times, I’ll take off either my shirt or pants and show off my lingerie. Again, this leads to a good segway… you can then let your followers know to find you on cam or your website if they want to see more.

Another feature that Periscope offers are private shows. You can invite specific users to join in on your private scope. You can get away with a lot more in private than you can in public. If you decide to use the private feature, you can mention during your public broadcasts that you sell private time through your website, clip store, etc. If someone’s paying for it, you know they aren’t going to report you.

Since Periscope is on your phone and can work from anywhere, you can even Periscope your daily life. Let your followers in on the stuff you do when you’re not working. Guys love to get a glimpse into your daily routine or join you while you travel, when you’re at a concert, etc. Even if you’re on the go, you can still jump on for a few minutes to say hi to your fans and quickly touch base with them.

Shooting Professional Quality Amateur Content

Shooting Amateur Content

Even though you may be shooting all of your own content, or have a friend/significant other helping you out, it’s important to make your content look professional. With 4K and 3D videos out now, you definitely should at least be shooting your content in 1080p HD. You are selling yourself, afterall, so you want to make sure your fans can actually see you in good resolution. Have you ever been streaming a video online or watching Netflix when the quality drops? Everything gets dark, grainy and blurry. The sound quality may even drop. No one likes that. And the same thing goes for watching porn.

Amateur porn is huge right now. The vast majority of guys out there like the “real feel” you get with amateur porn as opposed to produced porn. It comes across as more believable and doesn’t feel forced. With amateur porn, the person watching it can often put themselves into the situation, and that’s a big part of the appeal. But just because it has the word amateur in it, doesn’t mean it has to be shitty quality. Even if a guy really likes your style and the kind of content you make, he’s likely to move on to another model who shoots similar content if your quality is bad. Upgrading your equipment may seem expensive, but it will definitely pay off. You’ll not only notice an increase in premade content sales, but also in custom sales. If you upgrade your webcam to HD, you’ll see an increase in the number of guys in your cam shows. Like I said, they want to really be able to see you… all of you… clearly! So upgrading to better equipment really is a must nowadays.

One of the first things you should consider upgrading is your lighting. You can get a good, professional lighting set on Amazon for around $50. Even if you can’t afford to upgrade your other equipment right away, just getting better lighting will really make a difference in the overall appearance of your videos, pictures, and webcam shows. Make sure you check out my lighting guide for placement tips and tricks to really get the most out of your lighting equipment.

If you aren’t already using a webcam that can capture full 1080p HD video, I’d definitely recommend upgrading. On some cam sites, your ranking is determined partly by the quality of your stream. So using an HD webcam can really boost your placement on the site. HD webcams not only make your video stream look better, but they increase the sound quality as well. You’ll be able to do more in your shows because your fans will still be able to clearly hear you even if you step back away from the camera or move around a lot. I get requests for close-ups during my cam shows on a daily basis. If your webcam doesn’t capture HD video, your close-up shots are gonna look blurry and grainy. In fact, your overall cam stream will look grainy, dark, and sometimes off-color. With most models camming in HD, it’s especially noticeable to customers who frequent cam sites. They’ll immediately notice that your quality is lower than other models, and may not even give you a chance. If you’re looking for a webcam that shoots in full 1080p HD, I list a couple options here. But basically the two most popular webcams are currently the Logitech C920, which will run you about $70, and the Logitech Conference Cam BCC950. This cam goes for about $180. The main difference between the two is that the BCC950 comes with a remote so you can remotely control the movement of your camera and use the remote to zoom in and out.

The next most important upgrade is your camcorder. If you shoot custom content or videos to sell on your website or on clip sites, you’ll definitely want to get a camcorder that shoots in HD. A decent camcorder will run you between $180-$300. The Sony HDRCX240/B Video Camera is a decent option if you’re looking to stay on the cheaper side of the spectrum. It captures video in 1920×1080 resolution, is lightweight and easy to use. Although a good option, I’ve noticed an issue with this camera. Even with professional lighting, the video can be a bit dark. If you’re able to shoot outdoors or in natural lighting, it looks much better. But pretty much anything shot indoors won’t be as clear or bright as it should be. With that said, it’s still a really good option, and even though things aren’t as clear as they could be, it still gets decent shots: both far away and close-ups. A better, but more expensive option, is the Canon VIXIA HF R700 Camcorder. This camcorder will run you about $300 on Amazon. It also shoots in 1920×1080 resolution, is lightweight and easy to use. But the video clarity and brightness is much better than the Sony cam. If you shoot a lot of videos and can afford it, I’d definitely recommend this cam.

The final thing that I would recommend upgrading is your camera. I’m mentioning it last because it isn’t as important for some models. Many focus on camming and don’t really have the need for a professional camera. And a lot of models will just use their phones. But if you have a website where you post photosets to often, or if you get a lot of custom picture requests, I’d recommend getting a DSLR camera. I’ll warn you ahead of time, these aren’t cheap. And it’s recommended that you buy several different lenses, which are also quite pricey, so that you can capture good quality close-up shots, shots from further away, motion shots, etc. I personally use the Canon EOS 60D with 18-135mm lens. This camera is great! I love everything about it… except for maybe the price. With the lens, it’s gonna run you about $1,080 on Amazon. I mainly focus on full body shots, and this lens is perfect for that. But if you do a lot of close-ups, you’ll need to invest in a lens that’s specifically for that. This camera can even record video. It’s not as good as an actual camcorder, mainly because it doesn’t have an auto-focus. So if you move positions or get closer/further away from the camera, the whole video may turn out blurry.

When talking to potential customers about shooting custom content for them, one of the first questions they’ll ask is what equipment I use and if I shoot in HD/high-resolution. When I tell them what I use, many say how relieved they are to hear that and tell me about previous bad experiences they had with other models not shooting with good quality equipment. So upgrading to HD is definitely important and will most definitely increase your sales. You’ll also be able to charge more for your content because the quality will be better.

Cam Model’s Guide To Blogging

Cam Girl Blogger

Webcam Model’s Blogging Guide

Blogging is a great tool that every cam model should be utilizing. Not only will it increase your SEO, get you more recognition and help with building a fan base when done correctly, but it also gives your fans an insight into your everyday life. You may have noticed that a lot of guys want to get to know you on more of a personal level. Not everything always has to be sexual. When you talk about things that are happening in your everyday life, fans will feel a much stronger bond with you because they can relate. This is the key to building up a fan base of guys who come back to see you over and over again.

There are lots of different blog sites out there. You’ll definitely want to make sure you use one that is adult-friendly. This way you can post links to your website, clip sites, cam sites, etc., as well as naughty pictures if you choose to. The top sites that I recommend are Tumblr, WordPress, and ModelCentro. You can use one or even all three of these sites for a blog. I would personally recommend using either WordPress or ModelCentro in conjunction with Tumblr.

If you have a website through WordPress or ModelCentro, you should definitely be using their blog feature. Blogs are SEO machines! For anyone who doesn’t know, SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. Essentially it’s the process of using keywords that pertain to your niche to get free, organic traffic to your website, and helps you rank higher on search engines for those specific keywords. For example, if your main niche is femdom, you’ll want to use that word as often as you can when you’re blogging. That way when guys go to a search engine and search for femdom, you’ll have a higher likelihood of popping up. There are many more factors to ranking high in search engines, but making all of your blog posts keyword rich is definitely an important one.

Another way to increase your outreach through your blog, is by linking to and writing about your content. This is especially useful when trying to increase your SEO for your website in general. Every time that you update with a new piece of content, you should blog about it. Make sure your blog post has these important elements: a H1 title, H2 keywords, a picture, keyword rich text that describes your content, and a link to your content. Search engines look for all of this when ranking your site. The H in H1 and H2 stands for header. H1 should be used for the title of your post. It should be the largest text on the page and stand out the most. H2 should be used for keywords or to distinguish different sections within your blog post. If you add a picture to your blog post, the title of that picture is also important. You never want to use spaces in image titles. Instead use dashes to separate words. I recommend naming your pictures your porn/cam name and then the title of your content. So if I had a video called School Girl Slut, I would name my picture dirtylittleholly-school-girl-slut. Search engines look at everything when ranking you, so even naming your pictures or videos for your blog posts is important. You can also increase your SEO by linking to other pages on your site. So if you have a ModelCentro website and are writing a blog post on your MC website, link to your other MC pages when applicable. This is easy when writing about new content. You can just link to that new content and easily increase your SEO.

Ok, so aside from using your blog to promote new content, it’s also a good idea to talk about your everyday life. As I mentioned earlier, this is a great way for your fans to connect with you on a more personal level. If they feel like they can relate to you, you become more than just a sex object in their mind. They’ll respect you and want to support you. As cheesy as it may sound, this bond is actually really special. When you talk to these guys every day, you really do start to build a relationship with them. Letting them in on more than just the sexual stuff can make you feel much more comfortable and make you enjoy your job even more. Your blog posts can be about anything, just keep them real. Maybe talk about what you did over the weekend, or if you have a big vacation planned for the future. Have any interesting stories from your past? Anything can be a writing point.

Whenever you make a blog post, be sure to post about it to your different social media accounts. If you have a website through ModelCentro or WordPress, use that as your main blogging site and then definitely link to it on other sites such as Tumblr. Some of the tips in this article don’t only pertain to blogs. Use these simple tips to increase the SEO to your other social media accounts as well.

Using Tube Sites To Promote Yourself

Tube Site Promotion

Despite what you might think, tube sites can be a great promotional tool for cam models. The big tube sites get thousands upon thousands of hits to them every single day… that means exposure for you! If you look at tube sites as free publicity, and not as negative sites for guys to watch free/stolen porn, you’ll quickly see the positive side to it.

There is, of course, a right way and a wrong way to go about getting exposure using tube sites. If you find your content on a site without your permission, you can have it taken down, especially if whoever uploaded it didn’t watermark it for you. What you should be doing is creating accounts yourself on all of the big tube sites so that you can be in complete control of what content you add.

Most of the major tube sites have some kind of content partner program or amateur payment program. Pornhub, RedTube, xHamster, and YouPorn are good places to start. Basically all you have to do is create an account (it’s a good idea to make your username be your stage name), upload whatever content you feel comfortable with (some models will do a few full videos, some might cut out the orgasm part of the video, it’s up to you), and wait for the payments and traffic to start rolling in! You get paid based on the number of views your content gets since the tube sites will put ads on whatever you upload. Also be sure to watermark anything you post with your website address or camming profile link. This will help generate you traffic, increase your fan base, and prevent your content from being stolen off of the tube site and put who-knows-where on the internet.

Some models use YouTube to promote themselves. It works for some and not for others because of YouTube’s strict policies. If you get reported by even one person, they may remove your content or your entire account. If you do decide to use YouTube, don’t post any nudity and don’t watermark with any NSFW links. It’s best to make your username be your stage name and let people find you that way. Personally I don’t use YouTube. I’ve found it to be a waste of time, especially since there’s adult tube sites already out there. But feel free to give it a try if you want!

You’ll definitely want to put together some promo banners and profile pictures to use on the tube sites. When you sign-up on the tube sites and go to edit your profile, they’ll usually let you know what size to make the banners. Just crop down a few of your pictures to that size, add your link, and upload them.

Choose wisely which clips you want to upload to the tube sites. I think it’s best to post clips that are within your specific niche and really showcase what your content is all about.

Start Making Money With Snapchat

SnapChat

​​Snapchat is quickly becoming a big moneymaker in the adult industry. Many models have started selling subscriptions to fans in order for them to access their private Snapchat account. Snapchat is technically not adult-friendly, so there is the possibility of getting your account shut down for showing nudity. But with thousands and thousands of Snapchat accounts, the likelihood of you getting caught is low. It’s much lower than public accounts that post nudity since you’re selling subscriptions. Someone would really have to have it out for you in order to pay for your Snapchat and then report you.

There are lots of different sites that you can sell your Snapchat on. If you cam on a site that allows you to sell services like Snapchat, you can sell it on there. Any site that you have a storefront on such as ManyVids, Cam Model Store, or Extralunchmoney is a good place too. There have also been new sites created recently specifically for selling adult Snapchat subscriptions, such as Membership.club. You can even let fans send you Amazon gift cards in exchange for access to your private Snapchat account.

One of the ways to sell your private Snapchat account is through a public Snapchat account. This way has a pretty decent turnaround too! If you aren’t already taking advantage of promoting yourself through a public Snapchat, you definitely should! You can let your fans know what your public Snapchat username is through social media, when you’re on cam, or any other ways you can think of. It’s a good idea to keep this account PG-13 so you have a better chance of not getting banned. Plus, you don’t want to give away nudes on Snapchat for free when you’re charging access to your private account. You can use your public Snapchat to advertise anything you want, not just your private Snapchat. You can use it to get new followers on social media, to say when you’re gonna be on cam, for spreading the word about a raffle you’re holding or a contest you’re in, to announce raffle winners, and more!

When you advertise your private Snapchat, it’s important to let your fans know exactly what they’re getting. Don’t lead them on. This will result in cancellations and possibly fans feeling like they got ripped off and not trusting in you anymore. Ideally, you should post every day to your private Snapchat account. For me, I put on a different “show” for my fans through Snapchat every night. I try to switch things up. One day I might do a blowjob show, the next day a school girl roleplay, an anal show, shower show, something outdoors, the next day I’ll focus on close-ups. Keep your fans interested so that they become recurring subscribers. I also make it a point to post a few snaps of everyday things I do, such as taking my dog for a walk, playing video games, or going out with friends. This adds a personal touch to it and helps your fans relate to you as a person and not just this sex figure they dream about. 🙂

Something that’s becoming more and more popular are takeovers. Basically a takeover is when someone has an adult-oriented public Snapchat account that they allow models to access for promotion. You usually contact whoever owns the account through Twitter (generally they have a promo Twitter account in place first, which is how they get their following) and ask if you can do a takeover. You schedule a day and time, find out if they have any specific rules for their account, and then promote yourself on that account when it’s your turn. A lot of models will do a Q&A session in between posting their different links to help pass the time and to get potential fans to engage.

If you have yet to jump on the Snapchat bandwagon, it’s most definitely time!

Offering Custom Content

create custom content

Creating Custom Content

Offering custom content for your fans to purchase is a great way to make extra money. Some fans want to see you doing very specific things, saying certain phrases, or using their name in a video. By offering custom content, you can give your fans a personalized video or pictures that’s made exactly to their liking, and just for them.

Since this is content that you generally aren’t going to resell (although you can if you choose to), you can charge your fans much more than you would sell a premade, generic video for. Some guys are cheapskates, but most understand that the price will be higher due to the time and effort you’re going to put into their custom, and the fact that you won’t be reselling it for more profit. And if you do, it’s probably something so specific that not many other customers will purchase it from you.

It’s completely up to you what you want to charge for custom content. For me personally, I recently had to raise my prices because I couldn’t keep up with the amount of custom requests I was getting. And in the past, I had to lower my prices because I wasn’t selling any customs. So it’s definitely trial and error. And you’ll more than likely have to adjust your prices throughout your career based on your popularity.

You should definitely set your standard prices for custom content, but note to your fans that this is just your base price. If a video or photoset requires a lot of setup, you getting messy, or you having to purchase items, there will be an extra charge. Make sure you have your fans message you before purchasing a custom so that you can work out all of the details, make sure you’re comfortable with everything they want you to do, and let them know of any extra charges.

When you list your custom content prices, you can also include add-ons that your customer can pay extra for. These can include HD video, 24-hour turnaround time, a promise that you won’t redistribute the content, or anything else you can think of.

There are lots of different sites that you can sell custom content on. If you have your own website, you can sell customs on there. Most cam sites also let you offer custom content to your fans as long as they pay through the site. Sites like ManyVids and Cam Model Store let you set up a storefront where you can sell custom content. Some sites such as Extralunchmoney and Mygirlfund even have built-in escrow systems. These are nice because it gives your customer a chance to preview the custom before accepting the escrow. It helps put both their and your mind at ease, and ensure that both parties are satisfied with the transaction. You can even use your social media accounts to sell customs! If you’re using social media, make sure you only accept payment via adult friendly payment processors (never PayPal!) or with Amazon gift cards/items off your wishlist.

External Camming Software And Webcam Splitters

Webcam Splitting

Although every cam site has their own software that you can use to broadcast yourself, some models choose to use external software.​ There are several different reasons for this. External software offers models more unique features that most cam sites built-in software doesn’t offer, you’re able to watermark your webcam stream using external software, and you can broadcast on multiple camming networks at the same time if you’re using a webcam splitter! Now let’s get into a couple different apps you can use and go into more details about each of the above points.

The two most popular external webcam apps are ManyCam and Verysoft. I’ve only used ManyCam, and it works great! But I have heard that it can sometimes run slow on Mac OS. Although I’ve never used Verysoft before, I’ve only heard good things about it. Both are free, but you can upgrade for more features if you choose too, but it’s not really necessary. The free versions have plenty of cool features.

Some of the special features that you get with these external webcam apps are picture in picture, adding a background image, adding funny effects and custom graphics, draw your own designs, add a clock or timer, rotate or flip your cam stream, easily zoom in and out, and play around with the color settings (grayscale, brightness, etc.). Probably the coolest feature in my opinion is the picture in picture. This allows you to do a couple different things. You can have two webcams set up and show both of them at the same time. Some models will have one on their face, while the other focuses on their private parts. You can also use the picture in picture feature to stream both your live cam and a promo or sample video at the same time. This is a good idea for if your room gets a little boring or if you’re talking about a new video you have for sale. You can show little snippets of it to entice your fans.

With both ManyCam and Verysoft, you can also watermark your cam stream and/or add custom text. You can even make the text scroll across the screen if you want. The watermark feature is great for preventing your content from getting leaked on the internet. And the custom text can come in handy for posting video deals, raffle deals, your current goal, or the current high tipper.

ManyCam and Verysoft also give you ability to broadcast your webcam feed on multiple sites at once. I believe the free versions only allow you to use it on two sites at once, but you can do more sites at once if you upgrade. More than likely though, you won’t want to do any more than two sites at once anyways. This is called a webcam splitter. It allows you to cam on two camming networks at the same time. If you go into a private show with someone on one site, you simply disconnect from the other site until you’re back in public/free chat. I wouldn’t recommend doing this when you’re new to camming. It can get kind of confusing and very overwhelming.

In order to use these external camming programs, have them open before you log into your camming account. Once logged in, all you have to do is change the source of your cam to whatever program you’re using.

Holding Raffles And Giveaways

Holding raffles and giveaways is a fun way to engage with your fans and earn extra money. It’s always a good idea to come up with fun new ways for your fans to interact with you, and raffles or giveaways are a win/win for you and your fans! You’ll earn extra money for each person that enters, and your fans will not only have a good time watching and participating in the whole process, but also have some friendly competition and playful interactions with each other. When you go to give out your prizes to the winners, it’s awesome to see how excited and appreciative they are. You’ve now made someone else’s day that much better, and your pockets fuller!

One of the best places to hold raffles and giveaways is when you’re live on cam. These raffles and giveaways generally draw the most attention and are the most fun for both you and your fans since everything is happening live right in front of them. On sites like Myfreecams where your fans can leave you tips while you’re offline, you can even make money from your raffles and giveaways while you’re away! To increase the odds of people entering while you’re offline, some models will give extra tickets to those who enter when they’re not on camera.

Although not nearly as interactive, you can also hold raffles and giveaways on sites where you have a storefront. ManyVids, Cam Model Store, and Extralunchmoney are a few good examples. All you have to do is create an item, put in the details (how long it’s gonna last, what the prizes are, cost per entry, etc.), and explain that every time they purchase that item, they’ll get one entry into your raffle. You can then announce the winners on social media, make a video of you drawing the winners, or even jump on cam and do the drawing live. If you have multiple storefronts on different sites, you can list your raffle on all of the individual sites and combine the entries. Just make sure you write on the tickets (or whatever you’re using) what site they bought the entry on so you can easily get in contact with the winners.

That takes us to the next part… how to keep track of entries. Some models, me included, like to use actual raffle tickets and write usernames on them. I just think it adds to the excitement when I draw a ticket and can immediately hold it up to the camera and the winner can see his/her name. You can get tickets for around $6 on Amazon. These are the ones I use. You can, of course, also just use paper to write usernames on if you don’t want to be so fancy. 😛 If you get a lot of entries into your raffles, you may not want to take the time to write them all out. So a good alternative is an Excel spreadsheet. You can purchase tickets on Amazon that have unique numbers on each ticket. Start a spreadsheet with the first ticket number and use the fill option to put the rest of the numbers in. Then when someone enters, put their username in the spreadsheet the number of times they entered and put the tickets with the correlating numbers in a hat. When you go to draw the winners, just match the ticket numbers up with the usernames in your spreadsheet.

Another fun way to hold raffles is through your Amazon wishlist. I like to create a new wishlist and put a certain number of gifts from my main wishlist on it. I randomly pick one item to be the grand prize item. I tell my fans that they get a prize for every item they purchase, but an extra special prize if they purchase the grand prize item. I get a lot of engagement from these kinds of raffles and my fans seem to enjoy them. As long as you’re only accepting adult friendly payment processors, you can even hold raffles strictly on social media.

The prizes that you offer for your raffles are completely up to you. Some popular prizes include custom content, videos, pictures, Skype shows, website memberships, Snapchat access, used panties, autographed photos, gift baskets, and baked goods.
