(Webcam Startup) 5 Places to Promote Skype Cam Shows– While some Skype platforms have traffic (more on that below), most of the customers you get will be ones that you bring to your site yourself. If you are already on a regular cam site, you can’t just drop your Skype ID in the chat and let guys hit you up for shows–that’s going to get you suspended or banned really quickly. So, if you can’t tell your cam site fans to look for you on Skype, where can you promote your Skype shows?

(Camland Podcast) IWantClips sued by shareholder – Femdom video sales site IWantClips, still recovering from self-inflicted crises involving model information security breaches, has now found itself involved in a lawsuit. IWantClips is claiming this lawsuit is frivolous and claims that successful businesses attract frivolous lawsuits. Site Of The Week IWantClips – Our site of the week is IWantClips because of their involvement in an active lawsuit involving shareholders that they did not want the public to be aware of due to their lack of an announcement, and for serving a performer with a cease and desist notice for making performers aware of the lawsuit. Performers have the right to know about things happening behind the scenes at a company, and this includes any active lawsuits that could potentially impact performers. While each site is ultimately left to their own devices when it comes to making announcements about lawsuits and legal issues, it was very unfortunate to see such a serious lawsuit not being touched on until it was outed by a performer. IWantClips has proven a pattern of lack of interest in communicating publicly with models when the same performer who posted about the lawsuit also posted about clip artists private information being leaked. Model Tip of the Week Staying informed about things happening in the industry can help you better prepare for problems that may arise and impact your earnings and reputation as a performer. Do your due diligence for sites that you decide to sign up for, ask opinions from fellow industry members, and remember that it’s important to not put all of your eggs into one basket!

Site Of The Week Minnesota Freedom Fund Model Tip of the Week Don’t be scared to use your platform to raise awareness for important movements. Podcast Transcription: Hi everyone. I’m Aerie Saunders, the CEO of Webcam Startup and the Camland Podcast. I’m just here by myself today. Um, unfortunately Lilith has moved to a different position within our company and during the fluctuation of getting her and Katy swapped and getting everything sorted out. Katy, wasn’t able to make it here with me today. So you get to just listen to my voice drone on. I know you’re so excited, but today is podcast 119. You can follow along everything we’re talking about Camlandpodcast.com. Your episode 119. Um, we’ll also find links on YouTube to the page where you can follow along. And if you’re watching on Spotify, iTunes, or any other podcasting platform, just know that you can run any info we’re talking about on camlandpodcast.com and you can also find regular news updates on the blog there. And then obviously it can use Webcam Startup for all of your tips, tricks, and guides to succeeding in the adult industry. So this episode is focusing primarily on black lives matter. If you haven’t been on social media in the past few days, then you may not know what’s going on, but you should educate yourself on what’s going on. Um, the world is basically in protest for George Floyd, who is a person of color who was unrightfully killed by police officers in Minnesota. And, um, It took quite a few days until, uh, the officers were actually correctly charged and until the charges were made to a second degree, which is what people are believing, it should be as a first degree is harder to prove in court. So the world is protesting for George Floyd. Um, now that justice is hopefully being dealt out to his killers. Um, the world has also focused their attention on how many other killings by cops and, um, it’s very appropriate and it’s about time that people receive consequences that cops receive consequences for killing people it’s not right. And the system is, um, it’s broken and it’s, it’s really unfortunate that so many lives had to be lost until the world got to this point, but everybody is out there. Everybody’s protesting. And, um, it’s great to see Webcam Startup has personally donated a thousand dollars to a, um, A bailout fundraiser locally here, and we have encouraged and challenged some of the big box sites to also donate a thousand dollars to fundraisers of their choice. And we just hope that this continues to go in the right direction and that the systematic racism in our legal system is finally dismantled. So. Onward from that. Um, some sites are doing things that have been donating and, um, there is some other news, so I’ll just hop right into that and feel free to follow along with me. So we have our Manyvids after hours contest winners. The contest ran from the 18th until the 27th of May. The theme was supposed to be inspired by after hours activities and congratulations to all the winners and congratulations to anyone who entered into place.
