It’s no secret that the live cam models industry is saturated. With more competition, it’s important to set yourself apart from other performers to attract maximum audience attention. But what can set you apart and how do you do it well?
Unfortunately, there is no shortcut to getting to the top, but at Off The Record Models, we are industry experts and experienced cam girls ourselves, so we know the road to success better than anyone. Here’s part one of how to market yourself to gain a larger fan base!
You Get Out What You Put In
Live cam models lead an empoweringand lucrative career. There is a lot of freedom that comes with being a cam girl. Your earnings are limited only by your own imagination and work ethic. You can set your own hours and work when you like. No two days are ever the same, and there is always plenty of fun to be had. Webcam modeling is one of the most unique and rewarding careers out there.
That being said, you must develop a fan base in order to be truly successful. The more you put in, the more you’ll get out. Think of the camming industry in two parts: there’s the performing and then the marketing and promotion to keep your fan base (and your income) growing. If you really want to stand out and push your earning potential to the maximum, we encourage you to brand yourself effectively too.
Stand Out from The Crowd
When starting out, investing a few hours into research is important. Try to offer something a little different to everyone else. A strong place to start is deciding on a niche. Find something that you enjoy and are excited about – there is a market for everything.
Remember, finding something that you enjoy is key because you may be performing these shows multiple times a week. Your fan base will choose to watch you specifically because you offer a special service that ticks their boxes; they will be able to tell if you’re not into it.
Think of your personality and how you could integrate that into your work persona and shows; could you be the girl next door, a dominatrix, submissive? Be creative with hair, make-up, outfits and accessories. Anything that differentiates you from other live cam modelsand pushes you to the forefront of your fan base is helping you build your brand and gain a following.
Go Above and Beyond
Customer satisfaction goes a long way. The camming industry is about building quality relationships with loyal fans that will come back again and again. Whilst you want to attract new members, learning how to keep existing customers returning will increase your income significantly.
Listen to your fan base, they’ll tell you what they love about your shows and are essentially, giving you profitable ideas. Developing a working relationship with a few members is easier for you than constantly starting from zero with a lot of new members.
Note that your regular fans are the ones most likely to request extra, private shows and recommend you to their friends. Be personal and friendly, engage in conversation and thank them for their loyalty. Small tokens of gratitude like a discounted private show, or something special on their birthday will pay off in the future.
Get in Touch
Gaining a substantial following does take time. Be patient and persistent. If you account for self-promotion in your working hours, you will see your fan base grow surely and steadily.
