(Webcam Startup) How to earn money when you can’t work– In a perfect world, we’d all be able to plan for taking extended periods off work, with a cushion in our savings account and several weeks’ worth of content stashed away. Unfortunately, health issues and other life events don’t come on a schedule, and when you’re caught in a situation where you can’t work, you still need to keep income coming in. So, what do you do when you can’t perform cam shows or shoot new videos, but you’ve still got bills to pay?
(Webcam Startup) 5 Places to Promote Skype Cam Shows– While some Skype platforms have traffic (more on that below), most of the customers you get will be ones that you bring to your site yourself. If you are already on a regular cam site, you can’t just drop your Skype ID in the chat and let guys hit you up for shows–that’s going to get you suspended or banned really quickly. So, if you can’t tell your cam site fans to look for you on Skype, where can you promote your Skype shows?
(Webcam Startup) Interactive ShockSpot “The Worlds Best Sex Machine”– Are you looking for an interactive sex machine for use in adult webcam shows? Look no further than the ShockSpot, an interactive sex machine that comes with a handy camming guide for hooking your sex machine up to your live adult webcam shows. ShockSpot is recommended for use with Chaturbate, but since it functions as a regular sex machine as well you can use it on any camming site or for making clips.
(Webcam Startup) Turnkey Adult Websites: Adent or ModelNet?– The need for turnkey adult platforms is growing in demand as the adult industry spreads and the demand for more sites with better options grows, as a webmaster you may be asking yourself which turnkey solution is best for you. Generally you will narrow your options down to Adent or ModelNet, both of which are great turnkey solutions with options to install for you which takes all the technical hassle out of starting your own website, which can be one of the greatest hurdles when starting an adult site.
