SextPanther Review

How SextPanther.com Works

SextPanther is a site/app where your fans can chat with you by phone calls or text messages. Below I rate them in several different categories, giving them a score in each category out of 10. Out of 60 possible points, I gave them 51/60, with an average score of 8.5. The only category that they didn’t excel in was geo-blocking because they don’t offer any form of regional blocking.

How Much Experience Do You Have With The Site?
I actually just started using SextPanther last week.

Features 10/10:
SextPanther can be used to chat with your fans via phone calls and/or text messages. You set all of your own prices and your fans are charged per minute for phone calls and per message for texts/picture messages. You can also choose to charge for the initial purchase of your phone number, or have that set to free. If it’s free, anyone can connect with you, but they will still have to pay to actually chat with you.

It’s a good marketing strategy to set your phone number to free for a couple of reasons. When you have a free number, a blue banner is placed across your profile picture to let potential customers know your number is free. This helps draw attention to your account. The other reason why it’s good to have your number free is because more customers will connect to you, and once connected you are able to not only initiate chat with them, but also see how many credits they have on the site.

As I just mentioned, if a customer connects with you, you’re able to contact them. You won’t get paid unless they respond, but it doesn’t hurt to take a few seconds out of your day to initiate something. It may lead to you chatting with someone who comes back over and over again. To make it simple for you to connect with everyone at once, SextPanther has a mass message function.

You can send either a mass text message or mass picture message to everyone on your contacts list, or choose only specific users to send the message to. What I do is send out a teasing picture to all of my new connections, and then a message afterwards saying something flirty like, “Wanna see more? 😉 Hope to hear from you soon!”. The potential customers have to unlock the picture in order to see it. If they do open it, you get paid. So far it’s worked well and has gotten me some new fans who love to chat!

When customers visit the site, they can choose to view either porn stars or amateurs. There are some big name porn stars signed up on the site, which is a good thing. It makes the site seem more legit to guys who are viewing it for the first time. Don’t let the fact that more recognizable names are on the site make you feel like they’ll get all of the attention. Many guys would rather connect with amateurs than porn stars.

Profits & Traffic 8/10:
I’m still very new to the site, so I haven’t noticed a lot of profit yet. With that said, there is definitely traffic on the site. If you’re responsive to your messages and have your prices set at a reasonable amount, customers will connect and chat with you. It of course helps to promote your SextPanther account on social media so your current fans can find you. SextPanther is also very involved with their social media accounts. They frequently retweet you if you tag them in a post. They also do a lot of shout-outs throughout the day.

Ease Of Using & Navigating The Site 10/10:
The site is beyond easy to use. Not only can you view and reply to your text messages on your computer, but you also get text messages and picture messages sent to your phone. When you’re on a computer, you can find everything you need from your dashboard. There’s a list of everyone who’s connected with you (this list can be sorted by most recent, new clients, alphabetically, or by the amount of credits they currently have), detailed descriptions of your earnings, a button to turn your phone call availability on or off, and an easy way to adjust your prices. From your dashboard you can also check all of your messages, reply via text message or picture message, and send out mass messages.

Payments & Cashouts 8/10:
On SextPanther, you keep different percentages for different things. Payouts are 55% for text/picture messages, 75% for phone calls, and 80% for tips. Currently you can only choose from a mailed check or direct deposit into your bank account. If you want to do direct deposit, you will have to send them a voided check to get it set up.

Pay periods are from the 1st of the month to the 15th and the 16th to the end of the month. Payments are sent out 3-5 business days after the end of each pay period as long as the minimum payout has been met. The minimum payout is $20 for both check and direct deposit.

When you sign up on the site, the default payment is set to a mailed check. If you want to do direct deposit, you will have to email support to get that set up. On the site itself, there is not really any details about how payments work. I had to contact support for all of this information.

Privacy Protection & Geo-Blocking 5/10:
As with most adult phone service sites, there is no regional blocking. This means that anyone who visits the site has the potential of finding you. For models who prefer to block their country, state, province, etc. from viewing their adult work, this will be a problem and the site is probably not for you.

As far as keeping your personal information private, I haven’t experienced any issues. I also haven’t read of anyone ever complaining that any personal information was leaked from the site. So there is no worry there.

Customer Service & Support 10/10:
Their customer service and support team is probably the best I’ve ever seen! When I first signed up with them, they contacted me and had my account approved within hours. Later that day I had a couple questions about the site and they wrote me back within an hour! Just yesterday I contacted them again with a question and I got a response in 4 minutes and they answered everything I had asked. They’re also on top of their Twitter account. I made a promo post on my Twitter the other day and tagged them in it. Within one minute they had already retweeted it!

Overview:
Overall I’m really liking SextPanther so far. I like the way the site is setup both on the models end and the customers end. Everything is easy to use and explained well. The site is set up in a way where prices are very upfront to potential customers, making it more trustworthy.

ChatStar Review

My review on Chatstar

ChatStar provides models a secure way for their fans to sext and call them. Below I rate them in several different categories, giving them a score in each category out of 10. Out of 60 possible points, I gave them 49/60, with an average score of 8.16. They excelled in their overall features, navigation, payouts, and customer service.

How Much Experience Do You Have With The Site?
I’ve been on ChatStar for about 9 months.

Features 9/10:
ChatStar allows models to communicate with their fans via phone calls, SMS (text messages) and MMS (sending/receiving pics/vids via text messages). Your actual phone number is never revealed to your fans. Instead they use a forwarding system so your real phone number is kept private.

You’re able to decide what services you want to offer and what you want your rate to be for each service. You can set up your own pricing for the initial purchase of your phone number, price per minute for phone calls, the price for a fan to text you per message, the price for when you text a fan back per message, when your fan sends you a MMS, and when you send them a MMS.

ChatStar has done some marketing research and found out that if you set your phone number rate to free (for the initial purchase of your phone number), you’re more likely to get fans in your network, which increases your chances of converting fans into paid fans! They still pay your normal per message or per minute rate, but they don’t have to pay for the initial purchase of your number. If you set your phone number to free, you also get a “Get My # For Free” badge on your profile picture. Fans are more likely to view your profile when they see that badge.

Profits & Traffic 6/10:
If you take the time to advertise on your social media accounts that you use ChatStar, the earning potential can be great! ChatStar’s own social media accounts have been inactive for a while now, so don’t expect a shout-out from them. Whatever traffic you get will either come from you doing the work yourself by blasting it on social media (the main way) or from organic site traffic, which isn’t the best in the sexting/adult phone call market.

To increase your profits, check out some of the prices that other models have set. If you set yours too high, customers are gonna move on to the next girl who has cheaper pricing, but offers the same kinds of things you do.

Ease Of Using & Navigating The Site 10/10:
The site is incredibly easy to use and navigate. They make everything very simple for you to find, and do a good job explaining everything. The few tabs that they have are very self-explanatory and to the point. On just six different pages, you can navigate through everything you need.

Payments & Cashouts 10/10:
You keep 60% on the site and payments are sent out weekly, every Thursday. Pay periods are from Monday to Sunday which are paid out on the following Thursday. They provide you with a transaction list so you can see the fan that’s paying you, what the payout amount is per interaction, and the time of the interaction. They also have an Earnings History page which breaks down your payments by week.

Privacy Protection & Geo-Blocking 4/10:
From everything I’ve seen on the site, they do not offer any form of regional blocking. This may be a problem for some models who want to block a certain state or country from being able to find out their profession.

From different comments I’ve seen on various forums, some models are skeptical about the sign-up process due to privacy issues. When you sign-up for ChatStar, you put in a very minimal amount of information. After signing-up, a representative from the site will email you asking for the rest of your information (ID, headshot, social media accounts, etc.). This isn’t the best practice, since it may seem sketchy to some. But I personally haven’t had any problems, and my account was set up without any personal info getting leaked. I’ve also never heard any models who are actually on the site complain.

As far as your actual phone number goes, that is protected by ChatStar. They use anonymous proxy numbers in order to relay communication between you and your fans. One VERY important thing you need to check if you are accepting phone calls is your voicemail message. Make sure your voicemail does NOT mention your phone number! If you miss a call from a ChatStar customer and they’re taken to your voicemail, you don’t want them to hear your actual phone number.

Customer Service & Support 10/10:
When you first sign-up, not only do they quickly contact you via email with general information about the site, but they also set you up with some promotional graphics. They’ll usually pull a couple pictures from your Instagram, and jazz them up a bit with the ChatStar logo and the link to your profile page.

Overview:
ChatStar is a decent site overall as long as you’re willing to work for it. Like I mentioned earlier, the organic traffic that they generate could be better, so the majority of your fans are going to come from you directing them there. The services they offer are great though if you’re looking to get into sexting and/or adult phone calls. They make it quick and easy for you to get started on the site.

Please do not copy my site! Thanks, Sarah
