Camsoda is one of the entrants to the webcam modeling market and as a new face has come with fresh ideas and brought new energy into an industry that was getting sort of stagnant in many ways. In a bid to compete with other more established giants in the industry, the marketing ideas that Camsoda is using are great and have enabled it to cover more ground within a short period of time.
Even the established models want to open up an account at Camsoda so that they are not left out of the bandwagon.
How Camsoda has been able to gain popularity within a short period of time
Perfect marketing and advertising- the site has enlisted the services of popular Instagram models and pornstars which has thus enabled it to build a name, considering such people have a huge fan base. What the site does is encouraging popular models to open an account, and in turn, it promotes them on all its social media platforms.
Hence when people see that the likes of Pinky are in Camsoda, they will want to join the site so that they interact with such stars. The promo that such stars have given the site has allowed it to cover ground within a very short period and ensured that it has a star quality. This, therefore, explains why Camsoda has been the most-talked about webcam site in 2015 and 2016.
How the site works
If you want to join Camsoda, registration is free and easy; all you need is proof of ID and you`re good to go. You will be required to upload a digital photo of yourself holding your ID so that you can be verified. Once your identity is verified, you can commence broadcasting immediately if you have the necessary equipment. Like most of the popular camming sites, Camsoda also operates on a freemium basis which means that viewers can sign up for free and chat with models for free in the public chat room. This ensures that the site enjoys more traffic and performers can thus make more money.
The site is token-based, which means that if clients want any services from performers, they have to purchase tokens so that they are able to transact within the site. When a client requests a show from any model, the mode of payment is through tokens.
Unlike other sites which have fixed per minute rates, Camsoda allows models to set their own rates. They realized that not all models are equal in terms of status and thus you set the rate you feel you`re worth. Per minute rates are usually for private shows and group shows but as for other types of shows, clients tip on an ongoing basis.
Once you are tipped tokens, they will then be converted into normal currency and processed to your account. The site offers various payment options, namely: checks, bank transfers, Paxum for online accounts and wire transfers for international models.
How is Camsoda different from other webcam companies?
- It has one of the best Geo-blocking tools in the industry- if you want to enjoy anonymity in your camming career, it doesn’t get better than Camsoda. You can block people from entire countries or even continents from accessing your profile. I also noticed that most of the popular Instagram models that use Camsoda especially those from the US only allow people from Europe, US and selected wealthy Asian countries to access their profile.
- Members are able to rate models up or down based on their experience with that particular model. This keeps the models in check because as much as they want to make money, they also want to keep a clean reputation.
- The site allows models to sell extra content such as nudes, sex videos and used outfits & toys. The best thing is that the earnings from such sales will be processed by the site, but they will also take a small cut for the trouble. Models are also allowed to include a link to their Amazon Wishlist account on their profile, as well as a link to their Chatstar account. For those who may not be familiar with Chatstar, it is an adult phone service where fans can make direct voice calls as well as send direct messages to the model and they`re charged on a minute basis.
- Camsoda allows models from all over the world to join, without any discrimination. You will notice that even Africa is well represented, with lots of beautiful and exotic models from South Africa.
- The site has a follow icon which allows fans to follow their favorite models. This makes it easy for fans to know when you`re online, which is a good thing because it allows performers with a huge fan base to make more money.
