It takes time for fruits to ripen, even in the realm of cam modeling. There are thousands of cam models like you out there who are striving to make a name for themselves. And so many of them have already succeeded in doing so. But for that, you have to dedicate some time and effort to self-promotion.
Promoting anything is indeed tough, and the process might become slightly more intimidating while trying to develop your own brand. You will have to engage with your fans and offer them streams that excite them to the core. Moreover, your fans love feeling special and would like to know you as a person outside the screen.
There are, however, some tips that can help you with your branding efforts. Read on to know them.
#1 Create a strong social media presence
Social media is an intricate part of brands’ marketing and advertising initiatives to reach target audiences online. As a cam girl, you may want to keep your private life separate from your professional life, but it’s also vital that you connect with your fans through one or more social platforms. So, if you don’t have an account, open it right away! But after opening, make sure you turn on the “private” option to find only meaningful connections. It’s simply the best way to promote your work.
Consider getting on Instagram and Twitter as they are perfect places for giving your audience a glimpse of your life. You can post your life updates and cheeky photos to show them your life off-screen. Some of you may be wanting to stay anonymous. You can do that too! Just use your cam name and avoid putting pictures of your face.
Social channels like Facebook and Twitter have scheduling options, meaning you can schedule your posts and doll out relevant content at relevant times. It’s a great way to keep your fans informed and also apologize for moments you couldn’t be present to entertain them. Your fans will genuinely appreciate such a gesture.
Also, note that you need to link your cam profile to every social media account you use. It makes it easier for your fans to find you.
#2 Get in touch with fellow cam models
Social media is all about building connections, and one good way to do so is to respond to people’s comments and commenting on their posts too. You should especially try connecting with other cam models. This is a great way to increase your reach and perhaps even make some really cool online friends. Since your name appears on the comments, you stand a high chance of getting noticed by their fans too!
#3 Get the hang of hashtags
Social media channels and hashtags for hand in hand these days. You cannot avoid using hashtags in your social media posts at all cost. They help you get noticed and find new fans. Just do some research about which hashtags are trending in the cam modeling industry and include them to every update you posts.
#4 Follow their footsteps
Sometimes, you will have to parrot and flatter the other person, especially if you are a novice cam model. One way to do so is with the art of imitation. You may mimic others and perhaps take tit-bits of what they are doing for their self-promotion.
I wouldn’t be surprised if you say you are already eying a few amazing models in the realm. So, why not get deeper into their ways of getting there? Is there something specific that’s working for them well? However, don’t draw yourself back just because you don’t have as much experience as these models. But you have to start somewhere, isn’t it?
Now, try to do some of these actions yourself and see what results you get. If it works for you, keep it up! If it doesn’t, maybe try something different. There’s absolutely nothing wrong in being experimental. After all, we all grow as we learn.
#5 Introduce yourself as a ‘New Model’
Get on any cam site, and you will find this option. It lets you tag yourself as a new model. Doing so proves extremely beneficial because it helps you boost the visibility of your profile, and in turn, earn some cooling fans in the first few days itself. More the number of viewers at the start, more are your chances of achieving success in the long-run.
Also, make sure you add tags and filters for the rest of your time onsite. Your tag should include every single thing that defines you as a cam model. This increases the online searchability of your profile.
#6 Always (yes, always) watermark your content
There are thousands of cam models performing in the space. But what defines you are your content? Your fans should know this. The best way to make them know this is by watermarking your videos or photos you share on your social media accounts or sell to your fans. This ensures you and your name will be one then, when anyone shares this content. If someone sees it and likes it, they will know where to find you.
#7 Fan’s happiness is vital
This is perhaps the most important tip. Your fans come to you seeking some satisfaction and delight. They will come back to you only when you offer what they want. These are the most important people because they actually pay you for your work.
Since these fans will earn you your bread, you should be treating them with awe and respect. Treat them the way you want them to treat you. It’s just enough to make you their favorite cam doll.
These tips work great, but you should also remember that there’s no short-cut to glamour and fame. It takes time for your cam profile to pick up. But fret not, you will get there. Have the right promotional strategies in place and work your way up. And most importantly, be patient with yourself. All the successful cam models you see today have struggled like a warrior to be where they are today. With persistent efforts, you can zoom to that day.
