Article I Wrote for Icammodel.com Indy Cam Girl Site :) Twitter Marketing for Cam Girls

ARTICLE I WRITE FOR ICAMMODEL.COM FOR TWITTER MARKETING FOR CAM GIRLS :)

Hi,

I know iCamModel was quiet for a while and I’m happy to resume our mailing list. Just wanted to let you know about the latest article on iCamModel on how cam models can promote themselves on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1j5ZEEe
In this article, an experienced webcam model Raven Skye shares how she uses Twitter to get high paying customer for her independent webcam show that she performs via Skype. She provides a step by step instructions on how to turn Twitter into powerful marketing tool that every cam model should use to get a good paying customers outside of big webcam sites. Her Twitter account has over 16K followers that constantly bring her good paying clients.

I hope this article will be helpful for many webcam models who are looking to become independent and build their own clientele. Here is the link again: http://bit.ly/1j5ZEEe

Being a cam girl cam be hard work, as well as lots of fun. However, being an independent cam model requires a lot of self-promotion. And, if you’re like me, you don’t have a lot of money to spend on promoting yourself. I’d rather spend my hard earned cam dollars on bills and shoes. :P Therefore, Twitter is an amazing option for marketing yourself, your brand, your cam shows for FREE. Who doesn’t love free?
Let me give you an example how I actually made money and got cam clients by using Twitter for FREE. I now have over 16k followers but long before that many guys would DM (direct message) me and ask for a cam show. A lot of guys were time wasters (you get these A LOT in the cam business) but many were legitimate requests and I got some good paying Skype cam shows from using Twitter. I would Tweet sexy teasing pics of myself with a link to my indy cam profile or my Yahoo messenger name and I actually still get TONS of guys messaging me on Yahoo asking for a cam show because they found me on Twitter. So, there are so many FREE ways you can make a lot of money as an independent cam girl and one of the best of these is Twitter.
Twitter can be a little complicating if you’re new to it. However, after many years of using Twitter and marketing many different products on it, including myself, I have come to know the ins and outs of it. Let’s start with the first step. You need to actually create a Twitter account. Simple enough. Go to Twitter.com and on the top of the page it says create a Twitter.
Make sure you choose a Twitter name that you like because it will represent you and your cam girl brand every time you send a Tweet. My Twitter user name is Raven69Skye. This has my cam girl name in it, which is very important. You want all of your followers and those who are not yet following you to know exactly who you are. Don’t pick a name like hotgirl19. That will not help market your brand.
Now, you have a Twitter account with a good name. The next step is to add a profile picture to your account. People will see a small thumbnail size of this picture every time you tweet or retweet anything so make it sexy but no nudity. Twitter doesn’t allow nudity and why give it away for free anyway? ;)
Third, you should change your Twitter profile background. You can use one of the already-made default backgrounds Twitter offers or you can upload a sexy picture of yourself and click the box so it will repeat the image all over your profile background. This will show people, whenever they look at your profile, who you are and what they can get from buying a cam show with you. Then add words and your cam site or website links to your profile. Twitter gives you a space to add your website link so make sure to put it there. Then, write a short bio about yourself such as:
“I’m Brandi a hot 21 year old webcam girl with fake tits and a dirty mind. I love doing Skype cam shows so visit my site or Tweet me to play ;)”.
Anything you want to say to show people who you are and what you offer. Quickly read my bio on my profile for ideas: http://www.twitter.com/raven69skye
Now, you have your account set up, your profile picture uploaded, a sexy background, and your profile filled out. You’re almost done. Yay! The next step is to start following people. You want to mainly follow people who are in your industry or related industry. For example, when I was setting up my Twitter I typed in the search box the following terms and followed people with related accounts: sex, adult industry, porn, pornstar, fetish, fetishes, model, cam girl, webcam model, sex work, and so on. Get it? I sure hope so. Now follow new people every single day to build up your list but do not spam people or following thousands of people a day or Twitter will freeze your account and think you’re a spam account. Just follow maybe 50 new people related to camming per day. This will help those people see you following them then they will follow you back and BAM! You’re getting new followers.
Now, start Tweeting! Don’t overdue it by Tweeting every thought that pops into your head or spamming people with your cam profile links dozens of times a day. A few Tweets a day should do it. Promote your cam profiles, tweet sexy enticing pictures of yourself, retweet other people’s interesting quotes or sexy pictures, etc.
One more tip, Tumblr is a great free marketing tool, as well. And you can link your Tumblr account to your Twitter account so every time you post or reblog something on Tumblr it will automatically post it to your Twitter account! Twice the marketing for half the work. ;)
Before you know it you’ll have over 16k followers like me. :) It took awhile but I love Twitter and it’s worth it. Happy camming and remember that you don’t have to spend money to make money. :) So, have fun and go get those new cam clients!

My WeCamGirls.com Interview Yay :)

In the Spotlight with ravenskyexxx


Published on January 14, 2014
Written by Tristan

In the Spotlight will be a new returning topic on WeCamgirls. Today's guest is ravenskyexxx. Thank you for your time and enjoy the read!
How old are you and where are you from?

I am 28 (just turned 28 on October 2) and I am from the west coast. I am intentionally vague about where I'm from/where I live because I am unreasonably paranoid about stalkers/guys finding where I live. Sorry.

Is webcam modelling your day job?

Yes it is my main job. I have been working in the adult industry doing camming, pso work, selling adult content, and doing marketing for adult websites for over 4 years. It is all I do and I freaking love it. Actually, I also do pro tarot card reading and write freelance articles very part time. I love every aspect of this industry and I hope to be working in it until I'm 60. Haha. I did just try out retail a few months ago but only lasted about a month. I just need to work from home and be my own boss. I hated being on my feet for 9 hours straight and being told what to do for minimum wage. Not my thing. I am happy working at home doing my own thing.

How did you come in contact with the cam business?

Let's see...I think I was working a horribly boring office job and my husband was making nothing at his job and I think I read about camming or stumbled upon a cam site somehow. I honestly don't really remember. It was 2009. I just remember wanting to try non-nude camming first but it was very hard to find a site that allowed me that freedom so I gave in and started first at a European site called xmodels. You would think I would be nervous to start but as soon as I turned on my cam it felt so natural; like I had been doing it for years. I had so much fun instantly.

How would you describe yourself as a camgirl?

What do you mean? Like would I describe myself as a great cam girl or a poor one? lol. I just normally say I'm a redheaded tattooed pierced cam whore with a huge ass that I love to spank and I adore fetishes. I have a very open mind, I'm kind and caring and love to listen and help people. I also am intelligent and quirky. I'm a big silly weirdo who loves showing off her ass and tits.

Where can we see you and how long have you been working there?

Oh god. First of all, I have probably been signed up on 80% of the cam sites out there currently and those that existed but shut down. So, I probably have a profile on a bunch of sites that I don't even remember. lol. But, right now, I am working mainly on ExtraLunchMoney selling my content (http://extralunchmoney.com/user/ravenskyexxx), Kinklive.com), (As RavenSkyeXXX), Fetchgirl.com, (http://cams.fetchgirl.com/cgi-bin/performer/vibe_perdes.cgi/ravenskyexxx), streamate), (ravenskye.cammodels.com), I have a Naked.com, profile, seeme.com(http://www.lovetrap.com/ravenskyexxx/profile), camcontacts, and indy sites like girlsprivatecam.com andhttp://www.independentlivecamgirls.com. I LOVE the indy sites and always have. I hate sitting in free chat. Hate it with a fiery passion. :p I also have a MFC profile (http://profiles.myfreecams.com/Ravenskyexx) but I will rarely be on there. I'm just not fun or energetic enough to work that site.

Have you also been working on different sites?

As stated above, many many sites. lol.

Do you also have a personal website?

I used to but not right now. I am setting something up right now so stay tuned. Until then, you can keep up with me, see my free pictures, my blog posts and updates, and enter your email to get my new blog posts right to your email inbox at http://ravenskyexxx.blogspot.com I also have a lot of info and reblog lots of hot pics on my tumblrhttp://ravenskyexxx.tumblr.com.

Do you have a special room prepared in your house for your shows?

Not really. I wish I had my own office space. I just cam in my bedroom from my work desk. Sometimes I might cam in bed. I have a locked door for privacy.

How was your first modelling experience?

I talked about that in the other question. My first camming experience was awesome. I wasn't nervous at all, I had lots of fun and was smiling and met cool guys. It was also a huge confidence boost being called pretty and having strange guys want to see me naked.

What’s the most appealing thing about your job?

Most definitely getting to work from home. I suffer from mental illness, anxiety, depression, and severe chronic back pain. Therefore, I cannot work a "regular" job outside of the house because standing for more than a few minutes makes my feet and my back hurt intensely. I also have many many days where I'm too tired to keep my eyes open or I have so much anxiety I can't leave the house. So, camming and selling content and being a pso is the perfect work for me. Even though I can work from home, 70% of the time I'm still in too much pain or having panic attacks so I can't work much. That's why I am always broke and owe a lot of back rent right now :/

What do you like least about your job?

The guys who are broke, who think I just do this for fun and don't have bills or rent to pay and beg for me to get naked for free. I LOVE my job but it's my JOB. I need to get paid for this or I won't have food to eat, you know?

Do you have a funny story or experience to share?

I so do! I used to have this amazing customer. It was when I was working on a certain independent site that I no longer work on. He used to buy shows every week. He was also super polite. However, he had the most interesting and funny fetishes. I loved doing shows with him. I miss him. He would want me to pretend that I magically turned him into a tampon or my sock or something gross and that I would insert him into me or throw him in the trash or flush him down the toilet. He always wanted to play this game where I would take a box of tampons, write his name on one of them, and draw 5 or 10 tampons from the box without looking. If I picked the one with his name on it I got to turn him into a mini him and do whatever I wanted with him, such as put him in my bra all day and make him smell my sweaty armpits, or use him as a tampon and put him inside me during that time of the month. Those shows were the easiest, most funny and great shows I've ever done. I wish I could find that customer. I laughed a lot doing those shows. lol.

What are your plans for the future besides cammodelling?

Well, I have a BS in psychology and am currently going to graduate school to obtain my Master's degree in clinical psychology. I plan on getting a Ph.D or Psy.D in clinical psychology and opening my own therapy practice one day where I will specialize in people working in the adult industry, severely mentally ill people, heavily tattooed/pierced people, gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgendered people, etc. I want to help people who self-injure and people who are stigmatized. I want to continue working as a pso and cam model forever but I also am going to be a psychologist.

Any tips for new camgirls?

Oh, God. I have SO many tips. First of all, before you even START camming or selling your content, you need to think about the consequences and future issues. For example, if you're a parent or plan on having children they may find your porn online one day or their friends may find it and show your child/children. You have to think if you're okay having the discussion with them about what you did and why you did it. Additionally, if you're a teacher or will want to work with children in the future, be prepared to have them find out your adult past and fire you. This happens all the time.
Also, know that you WILL be recorded during cam shows. Your pictures, videos, and recorded cam shows WILL be posted and reposted on tube sites and many forums for free. You also have a huge chance that someone you know/a family member/someone you went to high school with will find your porn and tell your parents, etc. Think about if you'd be okay with this.
Also, you could make $1 one week, $0 the next week, and $1000 the next week. Your income will always fluctuate and you never know when you're going to make money or not. Also, all cam sites say "sign up here and you'll make $8000 a week!" That will NOT happen when you first start out and probably you will never make that much. You have to gain experience and build up regulars. They will be the majority of your steady income.
You have to keep records of your earnings for tax time as you are self-employed. You will need a CPA to do your taxes for you. You should have plenty of sex toys, sexy outfits, and a good HD webcam such as the Logitech c910 for camming.
There is a huge community among cam girls/sex workers and there are many wonderful forums where you can get tips, support, and answers to any questions you may have. Use these forums. Don't work too much or you will get burned out. Burn out is a big deal in this industry. Look it up on the forums.
One final and most important thing you need to know: Do NOT EVER give anyone your real name, address, city you live in, real phone number, etc. There are guys and girls out there who will want to stalk you. There are crazy and dangerous people out there and you need to keep yourself safe. Amazon wish lists show everyone the city that you live in. Don't use paypal because 1) paypal is anti-adult industry and will shut down your account and keep your money and 2) the guy sending the money will see your real name. Some guys can get your IP address from Skype when you do a cam show with them. You should download some kind of IP scrambler. They exist so find one. Keep yourself safe and NEVER do anything on cam that you really don't want to do. It's not worth it, no matter how much money. If you don't feel comfortable doing anal then do not do anal. Simple. I'm sorry for this being so long but I needed to share my experience with you guys and I hope that you pass on these warnings to other cam girls or women thinking of getting into the industry. Stay safe, stay positive, stay true to yourself, and make that money!
<3 Raven

I'm Camming Tonight!

Dude, guys, I have literally not been on live cam in about a year. I took a long break from camming because I was burnt out, I moved, I started graduate school, and just needed a break. In the meantime I have been working as a phone sex operator, text chat operator, writing freelance articles, and selling content on extralunchmoney, mygirlfund (which I don't work on anymore) and just sold me content independently on yahoo and skype. Now, I am back n action! I am soooo super excited to be camming again and show off my perky tits, my huge spankable ass, my tight shaved pussy, and my cute smile. I know you'll love my new curves (I have gained some weight and have more to love now) and my red hair and glasses.
