I think it's really weird to discuss who you think is attractive enough to deserve money or a relationship. Certainly off-topic.

Cam sites are useless.
What in sam's hell are you doing here then? This site is for cam models (that work on cam sites) to interact with each other and chat with users from cam sites. If you're into phone sex operation only, find a forum for that. Or if you choose to hang here, refrain from dissing our line of work just to praise yours.

I'm just touching base on the reality of the cam sites. No need to take it personal. I'm just saying absolutely anyone can work on a cam site so yes my topic is geared more toward someone that wants to become an independent cam model successfully without being on a cam site. The pros and cons of being independent by far out weight being on a cam site. Doing all the same exact stuff and more without all the cons of working for a cam site. It all comes down to marketing. It's a racket and for many that is their only option and way is to sign on to a cam site to make some money. I'm an advocate for quality control (which most the cam sites don't have)and for models and members to get the most out of the camming experience and reach their true potential online

That's the entire appeal.

You don't have to run your own site, don't have to find your own credit card processors or accept shady payments via paypal/etc.

Just don't come here and shit on the basis of which we all make our income.

You obviously don't know how to go the independent route. I've done very well with PayPal and Cash App etc. Literally have had loyal fans for years some even send thousands directly through these apps and it comes right to me. All using Skype mostly and also zoom and even Facebook. Go to the male model side of streammate 90% of the guys look like second rate models with the exception of maybe one or two. And it's dominated by foreign countries that do it all for cheaper. If your niche is being top notch then the entire appeal of anyone being allowed to work on there is a foolish decision to join the mix. I could get very detailed about it as far as the numbers and sales go and how much you lose when being on a cam site. No need to trip it just it what it is

No no no, I don't want to invest the time and resources into making myself an independent, would rather utilize all of the traffic and cc processing resources of a HUGE cam site to make my money.

I've been at this since 2009, if I wanted to go independent I would have. Utilizing MFC's resources is a WAY better use of my time and money. And especially so since I've endeavored into Onlyfans.

Just read the last few posts with the popular TikTok song of "oh no, oh no, oh no no no no no" playing in my head. There's a fantastically huge reason maaaany if not 99.9% of big models don't go the fully independent route. We already spend so much time creating content, posting, camming etc that we absolutely don't want to add more admin crap and concerns on top of it. It's not worth the time suck, advertising costs, charge backs.. fuck it. Hit post or broadcast and go. Already make 6 or 7 figures a year that way.

Way to go insulting the SM male community and it's viewers. Are you just bored and trolling?
It really looks like this user may have just been posting stuff to trigger us deliberately, there's no way someone would be as dumb as that with as much confidence, working with PP and FB. So I banned the troll, we'll move along now. :)

It's when I read stuff like this that I realize that I really do miss the old facepalm "Like" on ACF. :nod:

I asked her why she keeps her private rate so low(12 tpm) and asked her why she doesn't do more thematic type of shows. She told me that the studio will not allow her to change her private rate

Sometimes cam sites hire studios to populate their site. In those cases, I do wonder if studios can be getting kick backs , or other forms of compensation, that would motivate them to keep token rates low.

Or if they're just trying to motivate the models to stay public, and avoid privates.

Hope all is well Danny Rockmore. Thank you for taking the time to reply.

1st of all. Check for grammatical error/s before you post. #1: "I'm well aware that there is members that cam literally get off to anything." Huh? #2: "My point is if you are sometime that is truly attractive and has star quality." Huh? Now and moving forward, check your grammar please, thank you.

Glad you mentioned phone sex. Models can make good money doing this and/or combining phone sex work. The phone feature on SM from private shows made and still makes me a lot of money in the few times my webcam mic wasn't working, and I hope it makes other models money as well. A lot of schoolteachers do phone sex for supplemental income. If you want to receive more info. on this, let me know, I'll send the link/s.

Regarding the cam world you're basically doing what Janine Lindemulder did after her porn career ended. Like her, you're now saying the industry, in this case the cam world, is bad because you're not working on the cam sites anymore. Webcam models, and/or any/all employees are either successful or not. Regarding sex workers, watch the After Porn Ends documentaries, to see who was successful and who wasn't, and ask why. Part 2 is my favorite one. Click on trailer link below.

Last but not least, I also agree with you on "how to market themselves without using a third party platform." You can go that route and/or combine the 3rd party route and also go solo like I have. Whatever works best for you and/or any other webcam model, go for it. Nobody has to go to college and rack up student loan debt to learn how to do this. Just one or a couple of YouTube marketing 101 vids should do the trick.

Have a good day/night whenever you read/see this message. You and your family be safe.

Depending on the studio. Could be 1 or both reasons. Depends on which studio/s you're referring to. Nice photo BTW.

Just because you can say something on the internet... doesn't mean you should.

Hope all is well. We won't always agree with each other, and or with anybody else on the ACF, but I do respect and value your opinion. I do like these 2 things you posted here. Thank you. Going to use this when responding to somebody I respectfully disagree with on Twitter. Have a good day and be safe.

I like humor.

I'm glad you like the GIFs I chose, I felt like they were funny, and lightened the crazy 👍

Also @Dannyhomebody not sure if you're aware but there's a signature thing here on ACF. I notice on a lot of your posts you put the "stay safe" thing, and the "disregard if not helpful'. You could chuck that respectful part in there too... then you wouldn't have to constantly be retyping it. Just an idea. Wasn't sure if you knew you could do that. It's on settings, I have a rainbow thing about farting, but you could have yours be whatever you want.
