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.

Is Myfreecams A Good Site For New Cam Models?

Is Myfreecams a good webcam site for beginners?

If you’re new to the world of camming, Myfreecams might not be the best site for you to start out on. This isn’t saying that it won’t work for some new models, but overall it makes more sense to get the hang of camming on another site before moving to MFC. You’re free to make your own decision of course, but here are some of the reasons behind it:

When you first start out on Myfreecams, you get a “new model” tag. This will increase your traffic when you first start. Unfortunately the tag only lasts for the first 10 hours of streaming. If you don’t get your camscore up to a decent level in those first 10 hours, you’ll notice a drastic drop in your traffic the first time you log on without your new model tag. At that point, it could take months of camming to get your score up to a level where you’ll start noticing decent, consistent traffic in your room.

Your camscore on Myfreecams determines your placement on the site, and it is hard to maintain and keep at a high enough level to keep a good sized group of members in your room. When determining your placement, MFC only takes in consideration your camscore, nothing else. Your camscore is based on the amount of tokens you earn over a certain period of time. On many other camming sites, your ranking on the site is not based off of how much money you earn. Instead it’s based off of the quality of your equipment and stream, the amount of time you spend on cam, and the amount of good ratings you get. When you first start off camming, especially on a site like MFC where most shows happen in public chat, it’s hard to build up a fan base… especially in your first 10 hours. For many new models, you’re still trying to figure out how everything works on the site for at least the first few hours.

On MFC, models make much more money when they have other things to sell besides just their live cam shows: videos, pictures, customs, Snapchat, phone numbers, panties… just to mention a few. When you first start out, you’re more than likely not going to have those things ready to sell. Again, especially not in the first 10 hours of camming, which is the crucial point to raise your camscore. As a new model, you also probably won’t have a large, dedicated social media following yet either. It is definitely an advantage to already have fans who you know will support you when you first start off on a site like MFC.

It makes much more sense to start off on a site like Streamate for at least the first few months of camming. Streamate does not rank you on the amount of money you earn. Instead your rank is determined by the factors I mentioned before (quality of your equipment and stream, the amount of time you spend on cam, and the amount of good ratings you get). It doesn’t matter if you hardly make any money your first few hours on cam, your rank will still increase the longer you spend streaming, if you have HD equipment, and if you have a fast internet connection. This means you can take as long as you need to learn the ropes, get comfortable camming, build a following, and work on other items to sell (videos, pictures, etc.).

Another thing about your camscore on Myfreecams, is that you have to remain consistent if you want to keep your camscore at a certain level or have it increase. Having just a couple slow days, or even hours when you’re new can really lower your score and drastically drop your rank. To keep things interesting and fun for fans, most models on MFC play games. But when you’re a new model still trying to figure out how the site works, it can be very difficult to juggle everything at once. Between chatting, performing, entertaining, figuring out games, putting everything together correctly, and just being nervous, it’s almost an impossible task to handle everything when you’re just getting started.

There are no do-overs on Myfreecams. Once you create your account, that is the account you’re stuck with. So if you mess up in your first several hours of camming, you cannot delete it and create a new account to start fresh with the new model tag again. You may have to spend months of camming to increase your camscore to a level that earns you enough money to make this your full time job.

I don’t want this to seem like I’m bashing MFC, because that is not the case at all! Myfreecams is one of the top cam sites out there. They have many great features and host some of the top grossing cam models. They just might not be right for a new model to jump into until she learns the ropes elsewhere.

Streamate Features

Streamate Review

When deciding which cam site you want to cam on, checking out Streamate is a great option. Unlike some sites where you can perform sexual acts in public, Streamate does not allow below the waist nudity unless you’re in a private chat session. The benefit to this is that your content won’t get stolen as often and distributed all over the internet and you don’t have to beg for tips. If someone likes your look, personality, or the things you offer, they’ll take you into private for a show.

There are three different kinds of shows you can do with Streamate: private, exclusive, and gold shows. For private and exclusive, you set your own rate that your fans pay per minute. Generally your private rate will be set lower than your exclusive rate. You can also choose to offer block sessions. Block sessions are “bulk” chat sessions where your fan pays for a committed amount of time with you (15, 30, 45, or 60 minutes). Depending on the length of the block session they choose, they get a discount off of your normal rate (5% for 15 minutes, 10% for 30 minutes, 15% for 45 minuttes, or 20% for 60 minutes). Once you have accepted a block session offer, you must stream for the entire time block, otherwise you won’t get paid and you could face account suspension.

In private chat, multiple fans can enter your room and watch the show. Because of this, most models will not take requests and just kind of do their own thing and put on a more general show. This way everyone is satisfied.

1)Exclusive is one-on-one, just you and the one fan who took you exclusive. Since it’s just you two in there, this is where you can take requests, use their name, roleplay, perform fetishes, and put on a more personalized show for them.

Gold shows are a bit different. When starting a gold show, you put in your room topic describing what you plan on doing in the show, how much each fan has to contribute into the show in order to watch it, the amount of gold (1 gold= $1 USD) you want to collect overall in order to start your show, how long your fans have to get you to that goal, and how long of a show you’re gonna put on. If you reach your goal before the timer is up, you’ll definitely start the show. If you don’t reach your goal in time, you can decide to cancel the show (none of your fans who tipped in will be charged and you will not be paid anything) or go ahead and do the show anyways. If you’re pretty close to your goal, it’s a good idea to just go ahead and start. Some fans will wait until they see if the show actually starts or not before they join. So you may end up hitting your goal during your gold show.

Streamate also has a very cool (and profitable!) newer feature: TV Broadcasts. These shows used to be broadcast on live television, but their television partnership has ended. However, the feature is sill active and a great way to pick up new fans! TV Broadcasts are very similar to gold shows. The main difference is that they are guaranteed shows. This means that even if you don’t hit your goal, you still get paid your entire goal! If you don’t hit your goal, Streamate will compensate you about 30 minutes after your broadcast has ended. TV producers hand pick who to give TV Broadcasts to and they set your goal based off of the average you usually pull in during a gold show. Another small difference is that you must turn off all music and move anything that could be a copyright infringement out of the view of your camera.

Your ranking on the site is partially based off of ratings that your fans give you. Fans are prompted to rate you between 1 and 5 stars after a private or exclusive session. When they first enter the show, be sure to encourage them to rate you 5 stars afterwards. Some models will even offer a video or photo in exchange for a 5 star rating.

And that takes us into another feature on Streamate: their messaging system. The way the messaging is set up on the site, you cannot message a fan unless they message you first. Make sure you always let your fans know this if you offer them a video or pictures after a show so that they know to message you first in order to claim it. Sharing any personal information/social media accounts/other usernames/other websites is against the rules on Streamate. But anonymous file sharing, such as through Dropbox, is allowed. Be sure that there is no personal information or watermarks (unless watermarked with your Streamate username or URL) on any of your videos or photos that you offer.

The final feature on Streamate that we’re gonna delve into is their integration with ModelCentro. ModelCentro is a CMS platform that allows cam models or independent models to easily run their own fan site. If you have a website through ModelCentro, you can link it with your Streamate account and advertise that link when you’re broadcasting on Streamate. You cannot give your actual website URL out, but instead a banner will be automatically generated on your Streamate profile. When your fans click that banner, they’ll be able to sign-up for your ModelCento website. Streamate and ModelCentro both keep a portion of your earnings when you get sign-ups this way. Your fans’ membership will automatically renew each month until they cancel. When they sign-up to your ModelCentro site through Streamate, you can also offer them a percentage off your private or exclusive shows while they’re a member of your site.

Steamate’s current global ranking according to Alexa is 10,465 and 4,845 in the United States. Not as good traffic as some other cam sites out there, but still decent. If you like the idea of private shows as opposed to public shows (like the ones you would do on sites such as Myfreecams), Streamate is one of your best options.
