    First, I have a strong belief in the concept of teamwork, Triberr, one failing where many can succeed. I have always seen talk on BHW of people saying "we should get together and do this or that, beat the competitors together," and this is my goal here as well, helping each other succeed for the success of us all.

    Competition in adult webcams is definitely out there, but online sex and especially cams is a niche that is not going away. People face a lot of problems starting a new webcam site. This ranges from building the website, to even more basic problems like which platform it should even be built on. Let's not go into video streaming and hosting costs.

    So, this brings us to another option for an out-of-the-box, ready-to-go webcam site. The white label. There's several options, but I'm concentrating here on the one I feel is the best at the moment. And that's the one I used at ne1up.com (yours will be on your domain name, with your logo if you want to team up with me in this thread - I can make you a logo and even put the white label on your domain for you if you need). You can put this at yourdomain.com, .com/cams(or whatever), or cams(whatever).yourdomain.com. This helps great to keep certain SEO aspects OK - you can also set up as many of these on as many domains as you want to diversify, or just stick with one like I am.

    This thread will also be a bit of a journey, as I update as I go. The domain I am using, as you will see in the stats I post, didn't have much traffic prior. I did have it set up as a social search engine (made sense with the .com name) but everyone searched it for adult webcams. So finally I've given them what they want, lol.

    Anyway, here's my current stats. Obviously plenty of work to be done, but traffic is already picking up and I have spent very little time actually working on traffic generation at this point. So it's encouraging, though conversions are low. As time goes on and I target advertising and the like, this will improve.
    ne1up stats.jpg

    I have SO many tips and suggestions and things I'd like to talk about concerning this, so I'd really like to establish a help group, a network of us who are interested in building and developing these websites, helping each other along. Alone we probably can't take on a site like cam4, but a group of us together on here helping each other along could be extremely profitable for us all!

    I have seen some examples of what others have done with this program individually, check these out and imagining what we can do HELPING each other:

    fireshotscreencapture02.jpg

    If you are interested in joining along with me and anyone else who wants to tackle this together, let's do it. I'm always online and available, I love chatting about this and I'm going to drive mine forward as hard as I can. I'll help you do the same with yours in any way I can, at any time, and I'm looking for people who want to get together and have that same team mentality. I promise you, we'll ALL benefit!

    You will need a domain name and hosting at least. We can work around that in some way if you don't, but either way, if you WOULD like to do this with me: please use the affiliate program link at the bottom of ne1up.com to join me! Then let me know immediately on here so we can swap whatever sort've contact information you desire.

    There's a lot of excitement on here about starting a webcam site, for lots of reasons. Some guys just want a site up so they can go talk to models/escorts/strippers/college girls and refer them as broadcasters, others just want a few awesome white label cam sites in some select niches. We can work with it at all and we can make enough money to shake off the white label aspect - even develop our own platform together if we want, like all the big dogs did. I want to do that with you and we CAN, if you're still reading and with me on this.

    Either way, I'll be updating my journey here as I have time, with stats and any tricks or tips I pick up and think to pass along! Love to have anyone involved, whether you want to dabble with it or go full-bore, I'm sure a LOT of people on here have a domain name sitting there, just doing nothing anyway. What's the harm and it'll be fun!

    Did I at any point say I was an expert? No.

    Also, attention to detail and reading ability would have shown you that I have made NOTHING and been doing this less than a week.

    Thus, a help group/affiliate network where all us newbies interested in this sort've thing, or even those who aren't newbies but do believe in the general idea, can join in and work together to try and make some money rather than sit around and talk about or sharpshoot people.

    Would you have rather I posted another "how can I start a cam site" thread, instead of spend the time I did to write a post, trying to gather some interested people together, and show that I'm actively DOING something about trying to make money online? And wanting to do it with a few of my fellow BHW members?

    Geez, guy.

    I've definitely been speed-reading all about cams and conversions the past several days, lol. Conversions are definitely killer. I look to target this better.

    I set the website up a few days ago and just did a bit of experimental traffic building, just to see what traffic generation method worked best/easiest/quickest for me.

    But seeing numbers is motivating and I'm going to do some thinking on really targeting the people I want to so I can raise my conversion rate. I think I have a few ideas but I'm going to try them out first before I talk out of turn.

    Sorry, I've been up...21 hours, and I'm getting a little slow. :) Almost time for a five hour nap.

    I keep hearing that! I totally understand the SEO ranking thing, I've thought about doing this on a subdomain eventually. Because the not ranking for sh*t thing suuuucks. But still - we can be creative, and you don't have to rank to direct/refer traffic! ;-)

    Also, thanks for the mention of bongacash. I set up ads with CrakRevenue and PussyCash on a couple sites promoting my .com, and not sure how they're working yet as I just literally did a few hours ago, but I keep hearing about bongacash and meant to sign up with them and look at what they offer.

    I'm just doing a lot, lot, lot of experimentation, trial-and-error, and thought someone else might be interested in joining in!

    I REALLY appreciate all the comments and suggestions, guys!

    Glad to have you, krishna! Please let me know if and when you need anything, I want to help you grow it as big as you possibly can!! I see you've been here a while so definitely look forward to hearing your ideas and perspective on what works for these, especially as we put various techniques into practice and watch the results over time.

    I can walk you through any step of setting it up, answer any questions, or even do parts of it for you if you're comfortable with that and not comfortable with any facet of it, like the dns swap.

    Also let me know if you need a logo, I can definitely do up a few for you!

    (I pm'd you about this also)

    Also, I am finding that SEO disadvantages can be negated by using the white label on a subdomain, like cam.yourdomain.com, or at yourdomain.com/cams.

    You can also set up as many of these as you want in all sorts of niches, which can be huge if you're a savvy marketer/advertiser or pimp with recruiting girls for your site! :)

    Chaturbate is a risky business partner for rev. share. They have a habit of closing accounts without reason and the owners fucked over many affiliates in the past with xprofiles amd wegcash.

    I wouldn't want to do long term business with them.

    You can earn a lot with webcams and you should aim at 100$ a day with them, 100$ per year!

    I can't stress out enough how important is "Thinking Outside of The Box"!

    Sorry, don't mean to be pedantic, but what does that mean? What does this mean specifically "DOING something about trying to make money online"? Aren't we all doing something about that? Unless you're a pro trying to make a living online there isn't much sense to this job.

    I've always been curious about white labels. Never got to try it out tho as I am just focused on doing PPL with CrakRevenue and am wanting to try CPA sometime in the future on the side.

    I've got a good domain name but not sure if I want to use it for the PPL site I'm promoting, use it for a cam index site, or go white label with it

    No, we are ALL not doing something about making money online. PLENTY of us, me until recently, just read threads, thought about stuff, this and that, looked at angles and overthoughts things without actually EXECUTING. I didn't see if you were new here, but you must be experienced enough to know that plenty of people on forums just talk about doing things, and never actually commit and execute.

    And if you think you need to be a pro to do this job, I think you're wrong. Maybe you're right, but I don't think so. I think, like everything, we all start somewhere and we build from there. Which is what this thread was about. I've started, I'd like to do it with other people looking to start their own webcam site, because together we stand much better chance of succeeding than apart, ESPECIALLY as beginners.

    Like a peer support group for people wanting to start a webcam site. It's funny how many people feel like I'm peeing in their cheerios with this thread, but whatever. :) I do appreciate the people who have signed up and I am PM'ing with or those helping out in the thread!

    Anyway,

    I expect growing the site to be hard, but it's enjoyable. I am lucky enough to know a few strippers very personally, so I'm 'thinking/notexecutingyet' on the best way to approach/utilize them for marketing and spreading the word, at least signing up a few of their friends as broadcasters.

    I believe I can get like 500 free business cards from vistaprint or something like that, and that's one thing I'm going to do, once I decide how and why I'll want to give business cards for an adult cam site out. Know what I mean? Once I figure that out and where I can get some business cards I'm going to pursue that route of advertising.

    All in all, so far, I'm having a lot of fun. I don't intend on staying an affiliate forever - the real intent, the lofty goal, is to build a community together, and grow big enough to have our own webcam platform. For the simple reason stated above - a lot of these companies are ripping people off, and as a combat veteran raised by a cop, that pisses me off and I want to run something totally straight, above board, that pays everyone well and fairly.

    So I have to start as an affiliate, but believe me, there's a roadmap for moving past that. :) It just comes down to patience, time, growth, revenue, etc..

    Well, if you're not doing anything with it, I'd suggest at least trying it? I am really enjoying just being able to drive traffic and what converts and what doesn't.

    At least in the meanwhile while you have it up and online, when you wouldn't be doing anything with it otherwise, it might start making you a couple bucks here and there? Or get bookmarked/stumbled/whatever and it only takes one or two horny high rollers to really give you a surprise commission lol. :)

    Stats from just now. Seems to pick up late in the day?

    I've also started signing up girls I know personally. Only know about 10 I can really approach with something like this, but that's alright, starting small, doing something new every day. I'm looking at it like it's a garden.

    Someone mentioned above signing up girls is the way to go, and I do kinda have to agree. You get lifetime revenue share on girls you sign up. That can be pretty awesome if you think about it, if you know girls down with this sort've thing.

    Anyway, stats, and still nothing crazy exciting, but I don't use blackhat methods or anything for promotion. I probably should, but I'm working on personal/legit methods right now.

    Thanks all! Glad to have those aboard who have signed up with me, I love the sharing going back and forth already!

    Those numbers are a little embarrassing don't you think? My company makes more than you make in a month every hour. If you really want to get into the webcam business let me know.

    Nope, not embarrassing at all for someone new looking to share with others, get feedback, learn and improve with others.

    Sorry, not looking to get into business with people who want to compare dick sizes, I already see enough dicks on these cams.

    Thanks though!! Sounds like you do well enough to play on forums all day, can't wait to be in your shoes! :)
