Losers make excuses, winners make it happen.
Thats The Way Ive been thinking for Months now, And thats how im gonna KEEP doing my thing, I dont care if I dont make money one day and theres Losers in my room complaining my prices are too HIGH, I aint gonna lower my prices for NOBODY, Id reather NOT make money then sell myself cheap !
That's right, MissExxxoctic! If they can't afford Louboutin send they asses to Payless where they belong!
I hate the whole "get all my videos for $5!" I just find it sickening to me. It takes me hours to edit and upload and even shoot the darn thing. My videos are always $10 or more each. There's no way I will ever do that. Sometimes I use my videos as prizes and if I do a bundle discount I only take $5-$10 off depending on how many are in the package deal.
I know... I see some of the TOP performers of mfc Regularly on twitter like... Omgg I didnt reach my goal, Okay okay then Im selling all 28 of my videos+ 30 pictures for 200 tkns ( 10$) Its only for today ! Then I see them few days later , desperate to reach their goal again, do the same thing. But You know... I guess When Youre stressing about bills and depts youre ready to do everything. Even me sometimes On bad days, when I know the first of the month is coming up, It is so tempting to say like... OKAY MASTURBATION SHOW 200 tkns loll When I usurly charge like 1000. But I hold my self loll
Awesome info ! I won't present myself short just to earn less. I'm only an amature at what I do .. but what I have is worth every $$. Thanks for sharing.
This is something that I've slowly been coming to realize. I've become less wanting to give, I thought people would see that it's worth it to come to me, but all it has drawn is freeloaders. I've given myself a whole new attitude and have been firm with my 'basic/gray' fans lately. Surprise surprise, I made more than I had in 3 days, in... 34 minutes. I couldn't believe it. I didn't sit topless or 'slut' myself up as much and just turned on some tunes and did my thing. I never had so many premiums show up in my room so damn fast. 2 out of 5 that showed up within 5 minutes asked for a Skype show. And they both took my new prices seriously. I know I still don't charge 3.99 a minute, but not being in the bargain bin... it brings the better kind of guys around.
Ah, Unique... I really enjoyed reading your article :-) I get that how I've been establishing my rates is based on how much I want my income to be from this, along with considering the charges of others I've observed so far. Now, I'll run specials, release promo length videos as like POS products. I'm clear with my members/viewers on the real that spending time with me cost. If they complain, then it's just the case that I'm not what they're looking for. I also definitely identify with the importance of having other reasons outside of the money for electing to offer the services we do for it seems that money can be generated from anything. There's a reason why we choose this as a stream for income. When I'm having fun, I reach my financial goals with ease; yet when I'm feeling some type of way about my money, then that shows up for me too, lol... That's why I generally don't broadcast when I'm in that space - being in that mood when I'm not projecting my value - it'll just piss me off. I like this thread
Really very well written post. Thank you for taking your time to present those valuable insights. I believe we are our own worst critics. This makes it difficult for some of us to place pricing on ourselves. Recently, I raised my per minute charge on livejasmin. The first time I went online. It seemed slower than usual. I of course attributed it to my rate increase. I vowed to lower my rate back the next time I signed on. Well, I have an extensive "pre-flight checklist" before logging on and I forgot to change my charge the following log in. I proceeded to have a record night on the site. I had never been so busy with private chat. New members, old friends, it was incredible. After I logged off, my bf said "hey gracie, did you realize you had that night at your new higher rate"? Lesson learned. I kept my rate where it was.
love it! couldnt agree more! Value yourself so other will too
This is good stuff! I was told that by a cam friend of mind, and she really banks! She doesn't give ANYTHING away for free, and acts as though she doesn't care if they take her pvt, or that shes needs the money. She presents herself as a top class lady, and that's the type of members she gets! She spends at least 90% of her time in pvt! Definitely food for thought!
Good stuff! I love your mindset. I am a believer in what you are saying here, and I need to remind myself of that every day. I sometimes fall back into that negative pattern of thinking in lack, and it doesn't serve me at all! Thank you for sharing this with us, and I will pass this along to others as well.
Thank you for all the love and comments on my article ladies. I am SOOO glad that it has been helpful to you all. You are all WORTH it!
I went down in price, and found it to be aweful, not only did i not make much money, but i devalued myself in such a way it took me some work to get out of that mindset and realize my worth. I am one of the most expensive models on livejasmin, and some have critized me for it, but i will keep my price and worth.
I work on Streammates. I keep my prices firmly set at their maximum (4.49/premium and 4.99 exclusive). My strategy is to wait for the guys with $ to spend. They always come along. I humor the freeloaders when I'm in the mood. Sometimes, I will say to one, "joe, you have visited me many times, right"? He says "Ya! You're so sexy bb". That's when I say, 'wow babe during that time you've never taken me into a private show or tipped me. Are you ready to do that"? This always results in his parting with some money or leaving, making room for paying customers.
Very empowering and insightful! Thank you for this article. I will def be keeping this in my tool box for camming. I really need to print it and keep it on my monitor so that I stay focused.
love love love this. very inspirational. thanks! if only more camgirls followed this advice >_> if everyone charged $3.99 a minute and up...thered be less freeloaders because they wouldn't be so used to girls selling themselves for dirt cheap
Great read! Thank you Unique. If I don't value myself, then why should anyone else?
