How to Start a Professional Cam Model Website for Beginners

How to Start a Cam Model Website for Beginners

As difficult as it may sound to the beginner, starting up a new cam model website is quite easy, even for the more creatively inclined and less technical. Having your own cam model website will give you a hub for you to post what you want when you want to post it. Best of all, you are in charge of it. That means complete creative control.

These are the four things I’ll be going over in this post:

  1. Picking a domain name through GoDaddy
  2. Setting up a hosting plan through HostGator
  3. Choosing a premium theme with ThemeForest or Creative Market
  4. Starting a mailing list with MailChimp

Picking a Domain Name

Your domain name should be as close to your model name as possible. Your website will be your primary hub, your own spot on the internet for friends and fans to find out more about you.

 

It’s recommended not to try and get creative with your domain name, as it will cause confusion for people who are trying to look you up. Stick to a cammodelname.com, and always try for a .com URL. Although there are now hundreds of URL suffixes, .com is still the most common and easily remembered.

I purchase all of my domain names from GoDaddy.com. It’s easier to manage them from one central spot than multiple websites.

Do you perform under a stage name, and want to keep your real name private? Be sure to pay the few extra dollars a year for WHOIS privacy. When people look up who owns a domain name, your name will not show up.

Setting up Hosting

After snagging an excellent domain name, you’ll need to host your website somewhere so people can get to it.

I prefer to use HostGator for all my websites. They are super helpful with any questions and have 1 click WordPress installation to start putting together a great website quick. HostGator is incredibly inexpensive a month, around $5 for the first month and $10 per month after that.

Getting a Premium Theme

There are two websites I use for great looking premium WordPress themes: ThemeForest and Creative Market. Between the two of them, there are thousands of themes and templates to use for your website.

Generally, you will want to use a few different styles, depending on what your goal is for the websites. If you plan on creating a membership site sometime down the road, you should look for websites that offer that. Don’t worry, though, if they don’t there are always plugins for that.

Setting up a Mailing List

When people come to your site, you want them to both

  1. Stick around and read more about you
  2. Add themselves to your mailing list

That’s one of the keys to having amazing shows online: the mailing list. What it is is a list of people who opt-in to join your private list of e-mails, and then whenever you want you can e-mail the entirety of that list with a click of a button.

This is great for new shows, and special shows you have planned!

If you have even 500 loyal watchers who are on your mailing list, that’s 500 people that will tune into your show within seconds of starting, thus bringing you more sales through a boost in rank and increased visibility.

I always used MailChimp for my mailing lists, and once I had at least 100 people on my list I would upgrade to the $10/month plan. This allows you to setup an automated sequence of e-mails for new signups, perfect for auto-mailing freebies and starting a sales funnel.

Add Content

It only takes a few steps to get a website up and running, and a few more steps to have a successful cam model website. You have to add content!

This means post a personal blog, take screenshots of high tippers, or post upcoming events you’re going to. Have fun with it, and go crazy.

In review, we went through the following four steps when starting a new cam model website:

 

  1. Picking a domain name through GoDaddy
  2. Setting up a hosting plan through HostGator
  3. Choosing a premium theme with ThemeForest or Creative Market
  4. Starting a mailing list with MailChimp

Good luck with all your modeling and creating your cam model website.
