Social Media Sites / Tips For Adult Performers

Social media is a great way to keep in touch with your fans and followers and promote your services. Most people have personal social media accounts, and therefore knows how to use it. Using social media for marketing is very similar to using a personal account. It’s just for a different purpose. Best of all, social media is 100% free. There are some challenges in the adult-industry, however. Not all the social media sites are adult-friendly. Luckily, there’s plenty that allow for adult content, and the ones that don’t can still be used for promotional purposes. Here’s information on how to market through the various social media sites.

It’s built on Mastodon, an open source social media site that has a lot of similarities to Twitter.

Camgirl Tumblr Marketing

Tumblr – Adult-Friendly Micro-Blogging Platform

Tumblr is another adult-friendly social media site. Once again, you need to make sure to mark your blog as NSFW. With Tumblr, you can post photos, video embeds, text and other type of content. Tumblr tags are usually more safer than Twitter hashtags, as far as ghost bans go. If you’re photo-blogging, links can be added to the content, and even if reblogged the photos are still clickable.

Facebook

Facebook – World’s Largest Social Media Site

Facebook is the world’s largest social media site and one of the most trafficked websites in the world.

YouTube

YouTube – SFW Video Marketing For Camgirls

YouTube is the largest video sharing site in the world. YouTube isn’t adult-friendly, but it’s still possible to promote through the network. In-fact, YouTube is perfect for many fetish models who are catering to fetishes that don’t necessarily require nudity. JOI / JOE for example. Even though the content doesn’t contain nudity, it’s a good idea to flag the content as sensitive. It’s also not the best idea to post links to explicit content in the descriptions.

Google+ Another SFW Social Media Site

Google+ is Google’s social network. It’s not nearly as big as Facebook, which is the closest network in comparison, but it can still be used for traffic.

That being said, you should still be concerned about the type of content being linked to and the type of content being shared over the network.

Adult Social Media Marketing Tips

Here are some tips for promoting adult services via social media

 

Promoting Through Sites That Aren’t Adult-Friendly

It’s important to realize that not all sites are adult-friendly (we list the ones that are and aren’t above). Just because a site isn’t adult-friendly, doesn’t mean that you can’t promote through them. It just needs to be careful about things. Staying within the TOS of the sites when it comes to posting content and linking to content will help keep your account from getting banned. This does make it harder to effectively promote through the platform, but it’s the only way to take advantage of these sites.

 

How To Avoid Shadow Bans (Avoid Automation!)

In social media, there is something that is called a “Ghost Ban” or “Shadow Ban”. This is where your account doesn’t get removed from the social media site, it just stops coming up in search and in other places (newsfeed, for example). Sometimes it might only be for non-followers, sometimes your content might not come up for followers as well.

Shadow bans usually occur when the social media site detects things that they consider spammy. This might include rapidly following / unfollowing people, posting duplicate messages, being spammy about hashtags, and the list goes on. One of the easiest ways to avoid ghost bans it to avoid automations. A lot of networks allow some sort of automated integrations (usually Twitter). A lot of these automations are insanely spammy. Outside of making your profile seem like spam, this gives you a greater chance of receiving a shadow ban.

How To Get Retweeted / Shared By Camming Sites

Many of the camming and clip sites will share and retweet your content. The policies on what type of content gets retweeted or shared varies from site to site, but there’s some tips for getting more shares. The obvious one, is to make sure that the social media post is promoting content or a show on their site. If it’s something generic or featuring a competitor, they’re probably not going to share. Also, if you’re only posting to their hashtag and only mentioning them (no competitors), your post is also more likely to be shared. Having good text, image, ect. also helps getting shared in general.

 

Use The Best Profile / Banner Artwork Possible

This should be an obvious one, but you’d be surprised how many people neglect their avatar and banner artwork. It’s your avatar that’s going to be showing up in search, newsfeeds, ect. You want your photo to look insanely good and stand out. The same with your banner artwork. The banner can be used to give additional information. This might include icons or a list of sites you’re performing on or other relevant information.

Make Money Selling Social Media Subscriptions

Social media isn’t just a great marketing tool. It’s possible to turn it into a whole new revenue stream. This is done by charging for access to premium social media accounts. There’s even networks that specialize in this, and make it really easy to charge for subscriptions. They’ll even shoot notifications whenever there’s a new subscriber, or a rebill doesn’t go through. This makes managing subscribers insanely easy. You can learn more about selling social media subscriptions by checking out the link below.
