Well, here we are…yet another Halloween is staring us right in the face, and the rapidly growing cacophony of jingling tipping noises that can be heard on sites like Chaturbate and MyFreeCams are beginning to cause short-term deafness in cam models all across Camland. Yes, this annual spookfest is probably the best time for a creative cam girl to make tons and tons of tokens, so you better get your costumes ready, people…it’s time to make some bank.
Okay, cam models have typically got TONS of stuff to sell to their devoted followers. Videos, pic sets, polaroids, baked goods, panties, Snapchats, phone numbers, plaster casts of their feet, used tampons, bodily fluids, you name it.
With all this merchandise to pitch, it really helps to have ONE central location to list ALL of your goods and services for sale. What I’m basically saying is…you need a STORE, hot shot!
A cam model with a store is like a cam model with a sales headquarters. No matter where on the digital badlands you interact with your fans, you can send them all straight to your store, where they can buy whatever they’re interested in.
Oh, and you know what else? When people visit a store, they almost always get interested in buying more stuff than they originally came for. Think about it, do you ever visit the mall and only purchase what you went there for? What about that last time you went? You showed up to get some booty shorts, but ended up buying that hot teddy and those “to-die-for” weed leaf bobby socks too, amirite?
UmmHmmm, guuurl, I seeee you!!
The populace is still reeling from last weekend’s world premiere of “Sharknado 5 – Global Swarming” on the SyFy Channel, but my exquisite Camlord mind has been busy coming up with potential parodies of the ridiculous, but hilarious, B-movie franchise.
Well, the trend of live-streaming apps adding a tipping functionality is continuing full speed ahead, and Periscope has just become the latest broadcasting platform to jump on the bangwagon (oops, I totally meant “bandwagon,” I swear).
Many of you may be familiar with some of the other tipping-enabled apps like YouNow and Peeks, where broadcasters can make some sweet coin just hanging out in a totally non-nude capacity with their viewers. It seems like these live-streaming platforms that allow tipping are getting more popular than ever, so it makes sense that Twitter-owned Periscope would get with the program eventually.
Fidget spinners up the Wazoopa?? Yep!! Apparently, now you can get one of those super cool spinning thingies most people use to ease anxiety and shove it where the sun don’t shine. When I first found out about the fidget spinner butt plug, of course I immediately began to consider the potential camming uses for the odd new sex toy. Actually, the idea of employing this bad boy on cam should come naturally to anyone who’s spent the least bit of time catering to the often weird kinks that abound in Camland.
Sorry to report this, but it looks like a Camland promotional shoot went terribly wrong a few days ago. Molly Cavalli, a pornstar and cam girl for the cam site CamSoda, was apparently bitten on the foot by a lemon shark while being filmed in an underwater shark cage just off the Florida coast. It’s called “shark diving,” and it’s a supposedly safe way to mingle with some of nature’s nastiest sea predators up close and personal.
I guess the folks at CamSoda figured that a video of one of their stars flirting with the dangerous fishies might get some attention on Youtube. Oh, they got some attention alright.
It’s not a terribly unusual thing to surf the major cam sites and find many cam girls using webcams that are frankly unsuitable to film mold growth, much less capture online debauchery. This is probably one of the biggest problems in Camland, since a crappy webcam can cause many models to under-perform during their “newbie stage,” resulting in prematurely abandoned camming careers that otherwise might have held great promise.
Sub-par video equipment can also be a problem in the video production corner of Camland, as many cam girls have chosen to open up new revenue streams by selling self-made adult video clips on sites like ManyVids and Clips4Sale. Indeed, cam girls are now becoming the pornstars of the modern day, displacing major adult video performers at a rapid pace.
Okay people, I rarely get excited about new things, but this just might be an exception. If you haven’t yet heard of the new social media platform called “OnlyFans,” you need to pay careful attention here, because it has the potential to make you a whole lotta moolah.
How many times have you thrown up your hands in exasperation after having had yet another Instagram, Snapchat, or Periscope account pulled due to adult content violations? This is one of the most common complaints from cam girls, these days, and it’s a major pain in the patookie when you’re trying to build up an off-site fan following. I call this phenomenon “social media sandcastles,” because you can end up having to rebuild so many accounts from scratch so dang often, it makes you just wanna poop.
Okay, so many of you folks have emailed me asking how in the Seven Hells to make sense of Chaturbate’s apps and bots. I realize that figuring out exactly how to use and implement these neat chat room tools can be a bit tough for cam models new to the site, so I wanted to help out by pointing you to this excellent explanatory video.
When you’re a camgirl at MyFreeCams, one of the biggest issues you’ll face is the problem of how to raise your camscore. MFC pioneered the use of this ranking factor, which is designed to boost models who are “naturals” at camming straight to the top of the main chatroom listings. This, in turn, helps MFC because it increases the visibility of the models who are most liked by viewers and best able to induce the purchase of tokens by members of the site. The models who can’t seem to make tips or shows happen suffer declines in their camscores which, unless promptly reversed, can basically mean that they quickly descend into the dreaded MFC basement on page 46, never to be seen by humans with aroused genitalia again.
Most MyFreeCams models absolutely HATE the camscore, unless they happen to get tipped a lot, in which case they LOOOOOOOVE themselves some camscore. But, like it or not, it’s something that every single chick trying to make a buck at MFC has to deal with. This post is going to explain how you can boost your camscore by using video sales to significantly increase your inflow of both online and offline tokens.
