The different types of Webcam Girls

webcam girl life

Different types of cam-girls.

The Anonymous Cam-girl: A model who likes to stay anonymous, log-on, make that money and then be done for the day. They may run a twitter account or an Instagram, but usually keep it private and don’t promote much, other than to have a place where their regulars and fans can find them and keep in touch outside of their cam times.

The “CeWEBrity” Cam-girl: A model that wants to create a brand and maximize earning potential/accessibility etc., by creating a demand for that brand.

Both types are bad ass bitches who hustle and make those dollar, dollar bills ya’ll (can I get an AMEN!?) However, for the sake of me saving you time (since we all know that time is money) I’m going to put a DISCLAIMER on this one.

This article is going to be focusing on branding; specifically through cross promotion, so if you’re wanting to slay that anonymous lifestyle, you might not find much to help you out here. (Except for the endorphins that reading this will no doubt create.)

Moving on….

In my opinion, cross promotion is hands down one of the most important aspects to branding and all around brand awareness, which will result increased sales of your product. (Your product being your content, your cam shows and most important of them all: YOU)

Personally, I am on the following social medias:

*Twitter

*Instagram

*Snapchat

*Periscope

*Tumblr

I know what some of you are thinking. Why so many? That sounds like it will take a lot of time that could be spent camming or doing other things. While I agree that it is time consuming (and secretly I hate all social media) it’s a necessary evil to both the demand and accessibility of your brand.

If you aren’t already, I highly recommend being on every platform possible. (save for Facebook, but that’s a whole different article)

This brings me to my next point. The basics of economics, supply and demand. The supply is your product and the demand is created by you.

In this day and age, and especially in the adult industry you MUST create your own demand. Nobody else is going to do it for you, and this is a situation where the phrase “I get out of it what I put into it” should be your mantra.

Nobody knows what they want to buy until you tell them. Why is the iPhone so popular? They build up to the release date. Apple creates the demand and then supplies the product. You should be doing the same thing and the way to do it is free. Cross Promotion.

Here’s an average day for me on social media:

Step 1.) Say good morning on Snapchat and let them know I’ll be on Periscope in 10 min (insert Periscope name and twitter handle so they know where to go)

Step 2.) Get on Periscope and live broadcast for a few minutes. Right when I am about to log off I tell them to follow me on Snapchat if they want to see what I’m doing through the day. If I’m about to go live on cam I tell them where they can go sign up to keep hanging out with me. (Make sure you aren’t spamming, the key is subtlety.)

Step 3.) Log onto Twitter and have promoters RT “Live Periscope stream” and quote the tweet myself saying if they missed me, to follow so they catch it next time! This will get more people to re-play my broadcast, give me hearts and increase my popularity making the broadcast reach more people.

Step 4.) Post a pic on Snapchat saying the same thing “Miss me on Periscope? Broadcast is still available! Go watch it now!”

Step 5.) Save the pic from Snapchat and post on Instagram telling them to follow my twitter and add me on Periscope so they can talk with me live.

Step 6) Posting on Snapchat/Twitter/Instagram through the day with links to where they can find me on other platforms. (Ex. Post a pic on Twitter and write the link to your instagram. Post a pic on Instagram and tell them where to find you on Twitter.)

Step 7.) End the night with an after cam session on Periscope. (these can be quick. 5-10 minutes) Saying goodnight, having inside jokes with the guys who were hanging out in my cam room.. Creating demand of people wanting to have the same type of “friendship” with me.

… you get the idea. Everything is connected and people want to feel like they know you. Branding is all about injecting personality in a product and YOU are the product that you will be convincing them to invest in. (and yes, I use the word invest. To you it’s a purchase.. To everyone who is parting with that $10-$50-$100, it’s an investment of their money to receive something they are hoping will be worth it in the long run, and will continue to invest in if it is. There is an initial risk factor for the buyer that should always be taken into consideration.)

All of that being said, there are a few important things to remember. You MUST master the art of subtle selling. Don’t push it in their faces, and don’t only post links to where they can purchase products. People don’t invest in desperation, the invest in something that everyone wants.

The trick is to create the illusion that everything is their idea, while always keeping it fresh in their minds. Subliminal Perception, if you will. Ever hear about how back in the old days they would insert quick flashes of Coca-cola products or a picture of popcorn in movie previews? It would happen so fast you wouldn’t consciously know that you were seeing it, however some studies showed that it would increase the volume in sales at the concession stands. They did the same thing in World War II, with subliminal messaging by using a tachistoscope (a machine that projects images extremely briefly and rapidly) to teach soldiers how to spot enemy planes.

Cross promotion is, in essence, the same idea. By constantly putting yourself in their faces, it will create a sense of familiarity in their mind. You’ll notice people start to WANT to see you in their faces, so much so that they will start putting you in OTHER peoples’ faces, who will then want to find out more about you and see if they also want you all up in their grill. Alas, with cross promotion you have created a virtual snowball effect.

Damn, see all that demand? You created that ish. Now be proud and keep yourself there.

Start Making Money With Snapchat

SnapChat

​​Snapchat is quickly becoming a big money maker 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 who 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 Membershyp.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!

Converting Webcam freeloaders into Customers

Converting Guys into Customers on Webcam

Convert: Cause to change in form, character or function.

Converting customers is the most important part of your job as a cam model. Without conversions you wouldn’t have anyone. Just think.. Every paying client you have ever had is a conversion. Maybe not from you, but someone else was able to convince them to start spending money. If you don’t make converting customers one of your strongest skill sets than you are absolutely not fulfilling your full potential of a sales goddess.

When you strip away all the lace, frill and dildos, that’s what your job really is. A sales job. In fact, it’s one of the most challenging sales jobs that you could have. A car salesman sells a car because people have to pay to have one. People don’t have to pay for sex. They can get it for free all over the internet and in real life, so it’s up to you to convince them to not only pay for their fap material, but to make you BE that fap material.

My number one recommendation is to always be reading. Research and read books on sales techniques, how to win arguments, psychology on how the brain works, anything that you can think of that will help mold your sales craft into a force to be reckoned with.

Here are a few pro tips to get you started:

1) The Art of Subtle Selling

It doesn’t matter how many followers you have on Twitter, if all you do is post links to your content or your cam site and expect people to just click on the link and buy it every time, you are out of your mind. People don’t want to feel like they are being told to do something. In order to get people to want to purchase your product, they have to first believe in the product. Especially when you are selling yourself, you will get a much higher conversion rate if you spend some time letting them feel like they are getting to know you. Talk with them, have inside jokes, let them into a little bit of your life so they feel like they have a connection beyond the links that you tell them to click.

From there it’s always easier to make a sale. By building connections, you are building brand loyalty, which will make you more popular in the long run. The more popular you are, the easier high volume conversions become. People want what everyone wants, and to make anyone want you, you have to be real to them.

Once you start showing your personality by talking with them, letting them see some of your day on snapchat, hanging out in your cam room, then you’ll be able to start soft selling everything without making them feel like you are pushing for a sale.

“Man, I don’t know why no one in here has gotten my tits out. Whats up with that? I know you want to see them, they’re F**cking phenomenal”

This will create the feeling of them having the idea to tip you for a flash. The key word is their. Was it really their idea? Of course not. You just created the illusion of them coming up with the thought of “Hey, why hasn’t anyone tipped her to flash us? I would definitely want to see her gorgeous, amazing, succulent breasts.” Okay, maybe they wouldn’t think it in those exact words, but you get my point.

Alright, that was a really obvious example but you get what I’m trying to say, don’t you? You don’t always have to say “Let’s go exclusive” You can be creative with it and make them think that it’s their idea. You’ll end up converting people who never would have dreamed of spending their money.

2) You Giveth and You Taketh Away

This is one of my personal favorite tricks. Back when I was a bartender I used this all the time on my bar guests and it worked flawlessly. In a cam room, it works even better.

I’m going to use snapchat as an example, but this will work in any aspect. I keep my snapchat public except for when I switch it to private settings for my premium members. I only allow my premium members to send me messages, but every once in awhile I will announce that I’m going to open up my snaps to chat.

I always get bombarded with messages, and I really just hang out with them and chat back and forth. I don’t mention anything about them buying premium, or purchasing any of my content. After we’ve gotten into the really great parts of the conversation, I close my snaps. Right before I close them I let them know that talking to them was fun and if they were a premium member they would be able to chat with me anytime they wanted, and then I let them know where they can go to buy it.

I do the same thing with Gold Shows on Streamate. I will start a countdown, but if it doesn’t hit my goal then I don’t do gold shows for the rest of the week. This way it lets the guys know that I don’t have to offer them a discounted show, and that I’ll only continue if they make sure to make it worth my while.

This method has always resulted in sales for me. You giveth and then you taketh away. They will want that sunshine to warm them up again, so they’ll pay for it now that they know what it feels like.

3) Hard Sell/Soft Sell

I like to alternate my sales techniques. I’ve messed around with a million different ways to convert new people and the one that works best for me is an on week and an off week of alternating between hard selling and soft selling. The first week I will be constantly pushing my links in their faces, reminding them about where to go and what to buy. Basically, I’m making it impossible for them to forget, opening up my snaps and chatting, running specials and deals. Then the next week I back off, and rarely mention it. Instead of telling them how to buy premium snapchat, I simply let them know that I’m switching over to premium. I’ll make comments about a new video that I’m making, or how much I love getting to read the

custom scripts I get. I’ll open up my snaps and tell people to message me if they have questions about anything, but I don’t elaborate.

By teasing with what they could have but keeping the access to it just out of their reach, almost like they have to work for it, can make them want to have it that much more. Then, when you do give out the information, people will dive for it like it’s the last drop of water in the Sahara, simply because they don’t know when they are going to get it again.

Wax on, wax off young grasshopper.

Why Social Media is so important for webcam models

Enhancing your fan base and your wallet with social media

Did you know that there are women making six figure incomes using social media sites like Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, and Kik? Seem like an impossible task? It’s actually easier than you think.
Creating a strong social media presence is as important as turning on your camera for your cam show. You want to build yourself up as a brand—a bankable brand. Having lots of followers can lead to endorsements, ad sales, affiliate sales, or in some cases, a modeling contract.

If you’re new to the social media game it can seem intimidating to jump in. It’s best to start with the most adult friendly platforms like Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram. Instagram isn’t entirely adult content friendly but they’ll make exceptions if you censor your images (i.e. use Emojis to cover your nipples).

Instagram is far and away the best platform for becoming a ‘fit tea girl’ which is an Instagramer insider joke for women who promote detox teas and waist trainers. Those girls make serious money advertising weight loss products and exercise gear. Other girls use Instagram to show off their favorite lingerie or swimsuits and get paid to promote the brands they love.

How do they do it? First, they amass a large following, then they tag their favorite companies in their photos and mention them in their captions. The companies will often times reach out to the cam girl and offer either a discount on their product, an affiliate code, or they’ll pay for a sponsored post. Sponsored posts make anywhere from $30-$1,000 which means you post the brand’s picture for an hour and then take it down. Some girls will leave the posts up but other girls don’t like to be so blatant in their advertising.

Advertising other brands isn’t the only thing Instagram is good for. It’s also a great way to advertise your shows (and your other social media outlets.) You don’t want to make a habit of posting solely about your upcoming shows, but a flirty photo and a link to your cam site (in your bio) could be a great way to drive traffic to your show.

If posting photos of your everyday life to make money isn’t your thing, then consider joining Twitter. Twitter is a great tool for promoting your shows and showing off your, ahem, assets. A lot of girls set their Twitter account to private and charge money to their fans during cam shows to unlock access to their Twitter account. Cam girls typically charge fans between 100 and 200 tokens for access to their Twitter account.

Snapchat is another great social media tool for making money or building up your brand. Snapchat stories allows you to piece together a daily story showcasing your life which is something your fans will definitely be interested in seeing. There’s even a program called Snapcash. Snapcash allows fans to send you money directly through Snapchat. So if a fan wants to talk to you, you can charge them via Snapcash.Because Snapchat is a no-holds-barred venue for cam girls to connect directly with their fans there are tons of forums where you can find potential fans looking to interact with cam girls. The only problem with Snapcash is that some fans will cancel payment directly after they request a photo or chat with a girl. It happens frequently on Paypal and other money transfer services as well, so be wary of new customers.

The fourth social media platform you should jump on if you’re a cam girl is KIK. You can chage your fans to talk to you on KIK and have one on one conversation. It’s an easy way to make your fans feel connected to you, which typically equates to larger tips in future shows.

No matter what social media platform you choose to use (and really you should choose all of them) you need to be extremely consistent. Post everyday, at least three times a day to all your accounts and vary your posts. No one that’s paying for unique content wants to see the same selfie on Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat. Give your customers some variety and they’ll be followers for a lifetime. The most important aspect of any social media campaign is to think of yourself as a brand. Don’t post things that are off topic or too sales-pitchy. It’s ok to talk about yourself and tell people what time you’ll be camming, but they want to see you as a human being, not just another face selling a product. Ingratiate yourself with the fans, make them care about you, and soon you’ll be raking in the tokens.
