Selling Private Snapchat Shows by Katy Churchill

Make Money From 1-on-1 Private Snapchat Sessions

Snapchat can be a great tool for cam models to promote their shows and content, connect with their fans, offer special behind-the-scenes content, and even profit from selling access to premium Snapchat accounts with XXX content. Another way to monetize your Snapchat following is to offer private, 1-on-1 Snapchat shows. There are pros and cons to offering private Snapchat sessions, as well as different ways to offer them, but after some trial and error, I have found a good way to balance the good and the bad while still making a little cash from simple sexy snaps.

 

Benefits Of Offering Snapchat Snapchat Shows

There are several benefits to offering 1-on-1 Snapchat shows, for both the model and their followers.

Snapchat is very popular and discrete: Adult content consumers are always looking for ways to hide their use of cam models (PayPal and gift card payment requests are often signs of their attempts to hide their porn spending from a partner). With over 188 million active daily users, Snapchat is a popular app that your client may already have on their phone. There is no account to create, no browser history to clear, and nothing incriminating to download.

On-demand access to live shows: For models who have limited availability for cam shows, offering Snapchat sessions can add additional hours to their schedule. Your phone is always with you (likely most of the time, anyway), making it quick and easy for a client to contact you to set up a show, without you needing to be in front of the computer waiting for a Skype notification to pop up, or streaming live in a public chatroom.

Little set-up required: Without needing to log in to a site, use broadcasting software, set up lights and decor, or even touch a computer at all, you can earn some money doing Snapchat shows. Worried about your makeup-free face? Snapchat filters can erase a number of late nights drinking beer and watching baseball double-headers (not that I am speaking from experience).

 

Cons Of Offering Private Snapchat Sessions

With every pro, there is a con, and many of the drawbacks of private Snapchat sessions are the other side of the benefits coin.

Intrusion on your private life: Your clients may expect you to have your phone with you at all times, ready and waiting for their dick to desire a Snapchat session. If you have trouble setting boundaries, and are likely to drop everything and do a show if it is requested at any time, Snapchat shows may not be a good idea for you.

Requires external payment processing: If you don’t have a site to take payment on as a tip/tribute, you will need to set one up. Make sure you’re getting a higher percentage than the 50% max you’d make taking payment for a Snapchat show on a big-box cam site (Streamate, Chaturbate, MyFreeCams, etc). A site like IWantClips that offers up to 80% on tributes with a user-friendly design is ideal, though you can also use Cammodel Directory (75%), ManyVids (60%), IndieBill (85%), etc.

Low “production value” can disappoint clients: For those who are used to the HD video, crisp audio, studio lighting, big box of sex toys, and wardrobe bursting with sexy outfits that you offer for regular cam shows, the quality of a Snapchat show can be disappointing. Make sure you are clear in what you offer with your private Snapchat sessions to avoid complaints and dissatisfaction from your clients.

 

Different Ways To Offer Snapchat Sessions

There are 3 main ways to offer individualized Snapchat content on the platform.

Direct Messages: This is the simplest method for delivering snaps for a private session. Messages sent directly to your client can be replayed once before being automatically deleted (screenshots and screen recordings can still be done by your client on messages sent this way). If you want the messages to be able to be saved in the chat by the recipient, you will need to save the snaps individually and send them from the “memories” icon at the bottom of the chat window.

Video Call: The Snapchat video calling feature is rather cumbersome, but it can be used for one-on-one shows. The default view is full-screen on your client, with only a small circle view of what your client is seeing of you. It can be difficult to determine whether or not you’re in frame, showing them what they want to see. You can tap on the circle to change it to a full-screen view of the image you are sending, but this sometimes ends the call. Video calls are often choppy, low-quality, and frequently drop even when both parties have a strong WiFi or data signal.

Private Story: Snapchat lets you create stories that are visible only to certain “friends”, so if you want your client to be able to enjoy your snaps in an endless loop for 24 hours (screenshots and screen recordings can still be done by your client on messages sent this way), you can create a story visible only to them, and post the snaps there.

 

How I Do It

I love using Snapchat to keep my followers interested and engaged with my content, but I find private shows to be a bit of a hassle. After some experimentation, I ultimately decided to offer one-on-one shows only to my premium Snapchat subscribers. A $10 payment through one of my sites gets them 20-30(ish) photo and video snaps sent straight to them. They are welcome to send reply snaps, and depending on the timeline, I try to react to the snaps they send me in return.

The snaps I send are custom to them, but they get me “as is”: whatever I’m wearing at the time (makeup and clothes) is what they get, and I just snap without a remote or tripod, in whatever room I am in at the time. If they want a specific outfit or my HD camera and studio lighting, I tell them to buy a Skype show during my scheduled hours instead. I enjoy offering this more intimate, “behind the scenes” type of session as a special perk to a group of fans who tend to spend more on me than the average client, and I think they appreciate having access to a service that is an exclusive offer.
