(Webcam Startup) CB Cam Insights – Analytics for Chaturbate Performers– Chaturbate performers currently don’t have access to many basic analysis or analytics features that some other sites offer, nor is there a lot of help managing some of the essentials of your camming business – tips & purchases, tippers, tags, viewers and followers. It’s possible of course to extract raw token data from Chaturbate and take notes yourself on your viewer trends and follower progress. Unfortunately this is a lot of repetitive grunt work, so likely you either don’t do this at all right now or just do the minimum you can get away with – this is the gap CB Cam Insights is trying to fill, doing all this work for you better than you could do it and with zero time effort, so you can focus on your cam show and your audience instead.
