Facebook – World’s Largest Social Media Site

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.
