Episode 70: Terpon Patent Agreement, Camming Tips
Welcome back to the Camland Podcast! This is a short and quiet week this week. Terpon’s patent deal is the major news. Outside of that, we continue to revamp a lot of our camming guides and content. Recently, we redid the entire camming guide, and during the process we reviewed a lot of other main informational materials. Here’s everything that’s new in Camland and the adult industry!
What We Cover:
Terpon’s Exclusive Virtual Reality Patent Deal – Terpon has inked an exclusive deal with Virtual Immersion Technologies LLC (VIT). VIT owns US Patent No. 6,409,599 titled: “Interactive virtual reality performance theater entertainment system.” The patent has caused some issues for companies looking to provide VR camming shows. With the new agreement, Terpon partners can offer VR without fear of violation of intellectual property laws.
Terpon: VR Webcams For Camming Models – And with this new update, we went back and revamped our Terpon content. Terpon is currently in beta. We have all the information on how to get involved in the beta and we’ll be updating again once there’s global rollout and the webcams are available for everyone.
XVR: Virtual Reality (VR) Camming Site – And we’ve also got the information on XVR. XVR is a new VR camming site. The site is still very new and somewhat in beta, but it’s live. Martin Schultz, Founder of XVR, will be talking at the next Online Cam Summit.
Camgirl Tamara Wilson In 1st Drone Camming Show On BongaCams – Tomorrow, Friday the 17th, camgirl Tamara Wilson will be performing in the first ever camming show shot by a drone aircraft. The camming show will take place on BongaCams.
List of 2019 AltPorn Award Winners – The 2019 AltPorn Awards has wrapped up and the winners have been announced. The AltPorn Award Gala took place on May 11th In Hollywood, California.
ManyVids Releases MV Mag 25: Sublime Edition – The 25th issues’s theme is Sublime and features Bianca Beauchamp on the cover. As the saying goes, life is meant to be lived out loud, which all the stars on ManyVids know how to do. Their sexuality is unapologetic, their style is completely their own and they aren’t afraid to step out of the shadows to show the world the amazing people they are.
MyFreeCams Alternatives For Camming Models – Recently, we decided to drop MyFreeCams completely. We have not been monetizing via CrakRevenue for a while now, due to a falling out. Our coverage of all things MyFreeCams has been completely value-add to the community and not being monetized (like a lot of the stuff we do). Recently, MyFreeCams wasn’t happy about our coverage of a new FanCentro feature and asked us to take it down. Never before have we been asked to not talk about a feature that is live on a site (it’s still live, by the way). It wasn’t a hit piece and put MFC in a positive light. If they don’t want us talking positively about them, we’re just dropping them. MFC is the only site that has ever tried censoring us.
CamSoda Mother’s Day Traffic and Search Data – With newly crowned MILF Meghan Markle in the news and Mother’s Day right around the corner, the statisticians at CamSoda checked to see just how much their visitors love moms/MILFs/mature models/step moms, and the data was quite revealing.
Camming Model / Indie Pornstar Marketing and Promotion – We’ve completely revamped our marketing section. Before, we just used a blog category because that was easy. It wasn’t the most organized system, however, so we decided to actually create blog content. In the upcoming weeks, we’ll be going over all our pieces on promoting via the various marketing channels and social networks, and we’ll be making the marketing guide a lot more comprehensive during that process.
Camgirls: How To Launch A Fan Club (OnlyFans) – Katy Churchill discusses how to launch an adult fan club and gives some tips plus real world insight on her recent OnlyFans launch. The piece is geared primarily towards OnlyFans, but is applicable to any fanclub platform.
Discounts and Free Trials On OnlyFans – OnlyFans has added a discount feature. OnlyFans publishers will be able to configure coupons to run for a set duration or for a limited number of subscribers. It’s possible to create free trials by setting the discount to 100% .
Vibrator Information For Camming Models – Aerie shares some tips and information on vibrators for camming models. There’s many types of vibrators out there, including interactive toys that sync with camming sites.
Camgirls: Shopping For Lingerie and Outfits – Aerie also put together a great piece on what to wear on cam and where to shop for it. This includes lingerie, other outfits and cosplay.
Camming Model Moving Guide – Aerie has also revamped the piece of content on moving into a new house. This includes tips for people looking to purchase, as well as renters moving into a new place. Also, wish Aerie luck on her current moving situation.
Phone Sex Operator (PSO Guide) – In addition to the camming guide, weve also updated our PSO guide. There’s also going to be a lot more PSO content being added to Webcam Startup soon.
Kik Shows / Sexting and Kik Marketing For Adult Performers – We also revamped some of the content we’ve had on Kik. Kik can be used for promotion (there’s a mass-messaging feature that works great) and can also be monetized through offering Kik shows or Kik sexting.
Updated: Cammunity Schedule and Information – YNOT has released the schedule for Cammunity and opened up the registration. We’ve updated our Cammunity content to reflect the schedule and provide more event information.
