The key to a great show is all about building excitement before you go live — and then keeping the excitement going after you’ve finished and logged off!
A common issue for models is that they don’t know how to build momentum with their social media via Twitter, Snapchat, on-site messaging and more, so they end up having to work harder with longer cam hours because of it.
If this sounds like you, then next time you go on, try some of these tips and see your viewer count grow.
Before Your Show
1. Use whatever social media platform’s “live” feature to entice viewers to come to your show
You can be getting ready, setting up your cam room, tanning, cooking — whatever. Go live with a tease about going live.
Pro Tip: To really get things started, I suggest streaming live on your social during the beginning of your show. Don’t worry about managing both chats. By focusing on your cam room only, you’ll encourage viewers to come over from social so they can get some of your sweet, sweet attention.
It’s also a good idea to position your phone so people watching you from your social can only see from the waist up. This will prevent an accidental violation of their nudity rules.
2. Message your fans
Messaging your fans before your show works really well for models that have a fan club or have the ability to mass message their fans. The secret to this working well is crafting a message that feels like you’re talking to one person instead of a mass “hey everyone” message.
Here’s an example of how to personalize a message that’s really being sent en masse:
Hey bb! I was about to get ready to go online and wondered if im going to see you tonight? I’m in a crazy fun mood tonight lol. So if you do cum, watch out! 😀 Who knows what’s gonna happen. Ok, I’m gonna get ready. See you there! Ill be on at ___.
After Your Show
1. Record what you did that day
Recording what you did on a day’s specific show allows you to easily recall past shows that did well, get ideas for the future and ensure you say thank you to the bbs that supported you.
Make sure you make notes of:
What type of show you did and how it went (earnings vs goal)
The names of your tippers. Most sites have this in the backend where you see your earnings
Who you went to private with and what you did with them in private — important!
Pro Tip:To keep your viewers from putting their wallets away during your show, it’s important that you don’t jump all over your tippers when they enter the room. Doing this tells the other viewers in the room that a whale is here, so they can sit back and stop spending.
You still want to thank them though, so use the notes you’ve written to personalize a message after your show. It can be a picture, a short video, etc. This way, they feel extra special and will keep coming back for more.
2. Get on your social again and say a quick thank you
Say thank you to everyone and include a video or pictures of your room and the aftermath of your show. MOST IMPORTANTLY: Tell them when you’ll be on again, and invite them to your show!
Pro Tip:Don’t bash viewers on your social media! I cannot stress enough the damage this does to you and your future income.
Camming can be hard sometimes and it’s easy to get discouraged, but don’t quit! Add these tips to your routine, and I promise you’ll see the results you’ve been looking for.
