Webcamming is a business, and to be a successful business you need customers. Unlike the line from the old movie Field of Dreams — “just build it and they will come — this is not so true in the online world. It is true that many sites hosting webcam artists spend a lot of money on advertising, but those ads bring potential customers to the platform overall — not necessarily to your particular site.
Below are several ways to get your name out into the world and attract more clients to your site.
Social media can be a good way to get your name out and attract followers. However, most mainstream sites are either completely banning anyone promoting adult entertainment or they are shadow banning profiles (restricting a user’s account without notifying the user).
Most social media sites deny they employ shadow banning, but many people have claimed to have been victims of shadow banning because their sites experience a huge drop in engagement which appears to happen “overnight.” Therefore, be cautious when using any social media sites for self-promotion.
Wherever you promote yourself let your potential customers know about any specialized services you offer, in addition to webcamming. One specialty that can be lucrative is the Girlfriend Experience (GFE). If you plan to keep this completely online and never meet in real life, then you will want to make that clear. Beware: if you do an internet search for “virtual girlfriend experience,” you will pull up site after site of AI (artificial intelligent) girlfriend software.
Another popular specialty is the sale of personal items. This can range from worn socks to worn intimate wear. Once you have clients who are interested in you and want what you offer, this list could become endless. Your fans and customers will want to buy things from you just because these items come from you. This means you could have an opportunity to turn your hobbies into additional streams of revenue.
Blogs are a great way to self-promote. However, again, when promoting anything adult oriented it is important to find platforms that are adult theme friendly. One such hosting site is Hostgator. This company not only allows adult content, but you can also monetize your blog. Once you have a fair number of subscribers, at least 1000, you should think about ways to monetize your blog.
This site is perfect for promoting yourself as a webcam performer/content creator. Model.cam lets you set up your account for FREE! You choose a domain name, template and upload your photos, and you’re all set with your own webcam promotion site. This site is perfect for anything webcam related. You can upload videos, post all kinds of information about what you offer and link to all of your live webcam platforms.
This is another site where you can (for the most part) promote adult themed material. One word of caution, Reddit states the following in their terms of service:
