Why Do Cam Models Need Social Media?
Creating a strong social media presence is vital for a successful camming career. Having a large following will enhance reputation and credibility within the industry and of course, can lead to things like endorsements and ad sales; all of which can generate a healthy income. Connecting with existing clients on socials is a great way to increase brand awareness, whilst it is also a helpful tool to scout out new clients. Social media is a form of free advertising, Touting about what you offer with the relevant hashtags and posting consistency, will project you in front of a larger audience.
Although social media is a great way for cam models to promote shows and content, it can be viewed by anyone. It’s definitely best to privatise your camming accounts across the platforms you use. If you want to keep your work and private life separate, be sure to keep your name, location and job title completely different. Never post the same images across your personal and professional accounts – anyone could make the connection between your profiles. It doesn’t take a genius to use ‘reverse image search’ on Google.
The Recommended Platforms for Cam Models
Before jumping into the social media game, it’s important you’re using the correct channels for you.
Twitter and Snapchat
In the camming community, Snapchat and Twitter are a great way to promote your account and the content you offer. They enable you to connect with fans, alongside building relationships with other online cam girls. You can send paid for adult content to clients and also, post previews of your shows, marketing yourself accordingly.
We recommend that when using these kinds of social media, you use your business phone. This way they don’t connect with your personal number. With Snapchat, if your number is connected to your account, you will show up on your phone contacts’ suggested list.
If you have to connect your phone number, make sure it’s a work one, and you can individually block any unwanted contacts on your own terms if needed. We also advise turning your location settings off. This will ensure no one is able to see exactly where you are, whether through maps or posting.
Whilst Instagram isn’t entirely adult content friendly, if your image is appropriately censored and your written content isn’t too explicit, you won’t be shadow banned, or blocked. However, it’s important to do your research. We would recommend a ‘female friendly and communal’ approach to your profile. Set up this professional platform as more of a female empowerment page, rather than a page just offering any form of sex work by you. Hashtags must be relevant to the content you are posting. Consequently, you will attract the right audience for the content and services you’re offering. This will ensure a higher SEO ranking and in turn, wider visibility.
Like with Instagram, leveraging hashtags on TikTok will help to expose you to both a wider demographic and your target audience. There is huge potential for it to be a suitable marketing tool for sex workers. However, there are a few hoops cam models have to jump through. Nudity and controversial language are not allowed. However, underwear and cam appropriate outfits can be worn. Additionally, words associated with sex, or sex work will be flagged up and your post will be taken down. So, be mindful of the hashtags and captions you use – nothing too hardcore. Hashtags like #kinktok work really well, attracting the right audience, without being too direct about sex.
Look out for trends, such as #spicyaccountants, #bankbalances and other buzzwords to allow you to get on the hype without being too obvious about your career. Captions and auto-generated speech text can be edited, and certain emoji’s can be added, so you can ensure that your posts won’t get flagged down and are within the TikTok content guidelines.
