Whitelabels: The Ins/The Outs and Why You Should Have One
If you’re a camgirl, then you probably know about white labels already, and like most other models in the business have a deep rooted, intense hatred for the affiliates of white labels and everything that comes along with it. Of course by saying “everything that comes along with it” I mean the horrible affiliates that are usually behind the scenes of the white labels, screenshotting your pics, recording your shows to upload onto tube sites, and being a general pain in the ass when you decide that you want them to take down your videos. (DMCA’S BITCHES!)
I know, and I agree with the fact that some of the affiliates that are the ones running these white labels are complete jerks who have no idea what it’s like to be on the other side of the industry. (Side note: This isn’t always the case. It’s one of those, the few bad apples make it harder on the rest of them) All they care about is the bottom line and making money, which is understandable. However, my motto in life is “If you can’t get out of something, get into it” and that applies here just as much as any other place.
White Labels are a part of the camming industry. It makes sense. The cam companies are, in essence, paying affiliates to bring traffic to the site by giving them a percentage of all the sales that they bring in. There are white label opportunities for almost every major cam site, and there is no reason to limit yourself to only one, but just for the sake of streamlining this article, we’re going to focus on Cambuilder.com, which is Streamates whitelabel program. There are a couple reasons why I am choosing Cambuilder, one of which being that it is the white label I use, as well as being the most popular option out of all the affiliate programs out there.
There are five options that you can choose from as far as payouts go on Cambuilder.com.
35% Lifetime Revenue Share
$75 per spender + 30% Lifetime Revenue Share
$30 per join + 30% Lifetime Revenue Share
$100 per spender
$40 per join
All of them have their pros and cons, but if you’re in it for the long haul for long term passive income, 35% rev-share for life is the best plan overall.
Regardless of which whitelabel you decide to use, the inner workings are all pretty much the same. They will offer you a rev-share of the sales that you bring in. As a model, it doesn’t make sense to NOT take advantage of this. Even if the only time you promote the white label is when you are getting online, if you get sign ups it guarantees that no matter who they spend on, you are making money. (In Cambuilder.com’s case, 35% off every model they spend on, which would be the exact same as if they were spending on you.)
After the sign up, it’s a relatively painless process. You, of course need to purchase a domain name for your white label. This can be whatever you wish for it to be, but keeping it simple and easy to remember is going to be your best bet. After you have the domain name purchased, it’s time to set up your white label. On Cambuilder.com it gives you easy to use templates that let you customize the look and feel of your site. It’s literally click and point easy. You can upload your own logos, change the color theme, change the size and the look of the models icons,etc.
After that first step, the next step is going to be promoting your white label. A lot of models that I know only use their domain when they are getting online. While that works wonderfully, I feel like it is a missed opportunity. The second that I got a white label, I reached out to other models who either had one themselves, or models on the site asking them if they would be okay with me promoting them….I haven’t had a single one say no yet.
This brings me to my major point. IF YOU ARE A CAM MODEL THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE A WHITE LABEL. Look, nothing is going to change overnight. There are always going to be the asshole affiliates running the white labels that bring us the shitty traffic, treat us like dirt and give every other affiliate out there a bad name. But if you can’t get out of it, get into it. If you don’t like something, then be part of the change. Think about how different it would be if models all created white labels and traded promotional material. Not only are you supporting each other in the industry, but all of a sudden you have so much more promo available to you then the affiliates that only have your shows they recorded, and have models breathing down their neck to take them down. Add on top of that fact that, as a model, you have much more incentive to give people for signing up. “Sign up, spend $5 and get a free vid!” Kind of deals, that will start having checks show up in your mailbox without you ever getting on cam. Passive income ladies, now let’s all get together and get rich. 😉
