An idea for acwm

Postby BitHorny » Mon Oct 28, 2013 8:00 pm

Looking into the webcam industry from the point of getting new buyers it mostly comes down to aggressive large scale bombardment with pop ups, pop unders and similar from tube sites or highly visited porn sites, and all those sites are doing it in such a way that they don't really care about anything more that delivering that cookie...
That behavior gives a lot to the advertised program but later if it is abandoned by those sites the program (camsite) suffers because chances are that sooner or later a new camsites will emerge and a lot of large affiliates and smaller ones will turn to those.
I think that a good way to go for camsite owners would be to focus on new stuff, new markets and new possibilities.
For instance i never saw advertisement for a cam site that had a desktop app... Why a desktop app when you can do it via browser...? Desktop app would certainly bring more loyalty from the people who sign up... look at the online casinos, poker etc. they all have desktop apps... Would people do it via desktop app? Some may find it easier and better, some may have more trust, some may use it only not to have to clear browser history every time... there is a whole bunch of reasons why yes, and yes there are the ones which wouldn't want to use it but theres always the site, the browser version.
Another potentially huge thing is offline advertising, because online is highly saturated. Why not post banners in sex shops or similar, giveaway vouchers, sell prepaid credit... which you can use on the site or in the app. ...
Sell the app on a dvd disk or usb flashdisc (maybe run directly from usb no need to install) in sex shops with prepaid credit...

Buy a text (like interview with a webcam girl) in a printed erotic magazine... (more sales and more models)

Give people design and commission to hand out flyers in the red light districts of cities around the world :)

This are just some of my thoughts on how would i try to improve a camsite if i owned one...Have you guys thought about something similar? What do you think overall about it, maybe its the way to go, to make a difference...?

I was referring to the general state and the unfair things done by some camsites, but i'm glad that ACWM treats its affiliates in a honest way. After all the program wouldn't last all this time if it hasn't been doing so. In the long run it certainly proves as best the way to go. Thumbs up for ACWM.

Great, live cam messenger is a good idea, i'm planing on devoting a good chunk of time to the webcam affiliating, and beside the standard promoting i will also try a slightly different approach, eg. make a blog about webcam chat, in which beside some general stuff there will be tips on tools and tips on making the whole experience a far better one, something like kamasutra for webcams :D actually that may be a good name for it to :)


Giving some ideas for improvement, or more like brainstorming is important in any business prosperity, even the ideas that in start may seem like gibberish may lead to something epic... and i think it would be great if more webmasters would cooperate and shared their insights or ideas on how to make the webcam affiliate program better, its important for the camsite owners also because they gain valuable feedback and can see how the affiliates view things...


As for the presenting, thanks, well i have learned (the hard way) all about the chaos which may occour if stuff that needs to be done is not planned and scheduled upfront, and the saying what you mean always gives more mean to what you say. ;)
