    What's up nerdz! I need your help and I will take the top 100 brains to vegas in two months with me. Just kidding, but please keep reading ;)

    Nerdz, pimps, and everything in between-- please critique my monetization strategy for this model, let's call her Princess.

    Princess is from a very small town and socially inept, which makes her very hard to work with at times, but at the same time that means she is not getting any big jobs like she should and is practically unlisted on the net. She has the looks and charm to be an A-list celeb. I am serious and not saying that just because I am trying to bang her. :D

    How to promote her online.. Well so far, I built her a site because her last one is garbage. She has a dozen commercials and casting videos, so I created a YouTube channel and uploaded the vids for her. Next, I am going to build her a facebook fan page. Basically my strategy so far is to use YouTube and Facebook to try to build her fame. The fame should drive traffic to her optimized site which has the opportunity to convert into bookings through her contact form that goes to me. More likely though, I think a simple rise in even internet fame would rise the price of her jobs.

    And just for the record, she is not doing any topless, nude, or hemroid creme work. Her reason is that she does not want to appear slutty to her 2 kids, which are her life. That being said, I was thinking also about leaking a paparzzi style voyeur type shot of her to those upskirt celebrity sites to get a viral buzz going.. and she would be okay with that she said..

    Home Page:
    Just what you're doing really, get twitter account as well if you havnt already.

    Get lots of content on the site - photos etc ppl will love it!

    Just promote everywhere you can, if she really is pretty it should all grow pretty quick.

    If you want to make a bit of money you could do a fiverr gig?? But if your more interested in growing her status, that's probably a bad idea:)

    Anyway good luck;)

    Ps can you pm me the site?? ;)

    try to give her an image... since you are probably internet and tech savy, do the youtube channel and let her talk about the latest seo techniques or the latest xbox games and film her playing these games. nerds will eat it up and then you will come up with those upskirt pics and make it go viral. but do not start out with those pictures.

    The short version is that it depends what sort of image she wants to have.

    Find out the target audience of the magazines or advertisers or products she wants to target, and then customise your marketing plan to build an audience with those people.

    If she wants the FHM crowd, then yes, go for the tech savy, game playing, boy loving crowd.

    But then she's a mom. How old is she? If she wants to be targeting the older crowd, the approach is going to have to be different. If she wants the hometown-girl-done-good-but-still-grounded image, you will need a different approach.

    You want to build a buzz around her. Online and offline.

    For example, get her a facebook page + Twitter account. Use images and tweets to match desired image above. Use blackhat methods to get large following and fans to her pages.

    Then go offline, and offer the local papers interviews and photoshoots (even unpaid) for this girl generating such a buzz she managed to get FIXNUM followers in 2 weeks!! Tell them they can have interviews with this girl before she goes really big and unavailable. Once you have these interviews, just keep leveraging to bigger and bigger publications, and advertisers.

    Get her invited to events to present prizes and kiss babies. Charity events too. Anything to keep her name in the press, even if it is just the local press to start off with.

    Whatever you do though, make sure the sites have her talking TO her target audience, and not AT them.

    She's 33. Funny you mentioned the Charity angle, it's almost like you know her. I'm going to send you a PM with the site if you wouldn't mind taking a peek and/or critique.
