How to Utilize Affiliate / Referral Programs as a Performer

Affiliate Marketing

What is a referral program and how can performers use it to make more money?

Referral or affiliate programs are monetized programs offered by websites to help bring them more traffic from customers or get more performer sign-ups. Websites monetize customer and model recruitment through links or referral codes for their active performers or approved affiliates in order to provide incentive for the individual to promote their network to their traffic and allow the performer or affiliate to get paid for the effort put into marketing the website. These programs can greatly benefit performers because many performers already drive traffic to the websites they use by linking to them so they are easily able to increase their own income by swapping out the generic website link with a referral link to monetize the traffic they are sending to the website that they are already using!

Camming Websites with Model Referral Programs

Model referral programs can be great for affiliates or performers who want to promote the websites they prefer using to their audience, and can be very helpful for performers looking to monetize tips and tricks and helping new models get started without outright charging them.

Websites with Customer Referral Programs that Performers can use!

Here’s a list of the different camming affiliate programs. The directory indicates whether or not the program offers a revshare, pay-per-signup (PPS) or pay-per-lead (PPL). The directory also indicates whether or not the program offers a whitelabeled site builder. Revshare is when you get a percentage of what a customer spends, pay-per-signup (PPS) is when you get a set amount for every customer that signs up and generally will include terms like payout happening after a purchase, pay-per-lead (PPL) is a set amount for a sign up. A whitelabel can be beneficial for performers that want to promote other performers on their camming, clip, or other platforms because you can set up a whitelabeled site and promote any models on the site by advertising your whitelabel and monetize it.

Promote Yourself and Your Performer Friends with your own Branded Whitelabel

Many of the sites listed above allow for the creation of a branded whitelabel. A whitelabel is a site that sources the performers automatically from the origin site but allows you to name the site and generally take some artistic liberties with the design, as well as profit from any traffic that spends through your site! In order to do this, you will need to purchase a domain. Coming up with an easy to remember but unique name will help make promoting easier and your customers will love supporting you through your “own website.” You can also promote friends that are on the same website as you through your whitelabel by announcing when they’re online, or with their permission linking to their room via your whitelabel. Whitelabel sites are known to generate a great amount of income for people who don’t want to put the effort into building their own camming website but want the ability to personalize their site and be provided with models. All of the popular tube sites utilize whitelabels in their “live cam” sections!

How can I promote my affiliate links?

Many performers find it easier to buy a domain and redirect it to their affiliate link so it’s memorable since most affiliate or referral links have long numbers and letters at the end that can be a pain, it isn’t necessary but it adds a personal touch to it. You can also create sub-domains for domains you already have, for example if you have a website already called you could create using your affiliate link! Using sub-domains will cut down on costs of multiple domain purchases and they are also easy to remember. The most obvious way to promote your links is to promote yourself, when you get online or post new clips on sites with customer referral programs use your referral link rather than your generic link so you can monetize potential clicks from your social media. If you are on cam or clip sites that allow cross promotion of other platforms you can also put clickable links to your platforms using your affiliate/referral links rather than your generic site link.

How can I get model referrals?

Performers have found a variety of ways to monetize model referrals, whether it be from offering to help with set up, offering written guides, video tutorials, etc. many performers will provide these at no cost to other performers in return for them using their model referral link to sign up, this is great for creators who have a good reputation with other performers within the community and have built a foundation of trust with their following. It is also helpful for when your in-real-life friends decide they want to give “slut life” a try and want your help signing up, the least they can do is sign up with your link since they’ll be messaging you with tons of questions about things!
