We’re sorry Flash, but WebRTC is the future

You probably remember the first time you opened your internet browser and surfed for hours and hours. That couldn’t happen without the good-old Adobe Flash Player. It’s probably the best-known media solution from our browsers back in the day, but why just back in the day?

 

Back in the day, because now we have access to something much more efficient, it’s called WebRTC and HTML5. These 2 new technologies are used even by the biggest players of the industry like Facebook, Google and Skype. Imagine Flash as the point of connection of two roads but in terms of an exchange of information. Everything had to go through that intersection, but the new technologies are like some huge highways connecting point A to point B without any intersections, which means it’s much faster and easier to use.

 

Flash is a plug-in that you have to download on your browsers in order to make it work, and the process could create problems for the less experimented users of the internet, but WebRTC and HTML5 don’t require any effort, because they are built-in into the browsers. The biggest reason to worry about is that Adobe announced that will stop the support for the product. Flash is coded in Flex, which means poor video and audio quality. WebRTC is coded in JavaScript (essentially the Internet’s mother tongue) which is a big plus. Another important issue with Flash comparing to WebRTC and HTML5 is that it need a higher processing power than the other two.

 

Flash is also more “resource oriented”, this means that it requires more space because it’s basically a plug-in which needs to be installed. It seems that Flash has issues even with SEO because it’s considered as a non SEO friendly plug-in comparing to HTML5 which is a native on browser, SEO friendly technology.

 

There are some things that are good to know, even if you’re not the biggest tech fan, especially when it comes to starting an online business. In the live video streaming business the quality of the stream has a crucial importance, this is why we always keep up with the latest technologies like WebRTC and HTML5.  After reading this article we hope that you understand the importance of these changes in the online world, changes that look small at first, but have a massive impact on the user’s overall satisfaction.

How to Find Performers for Your Live Cam Business?

Everybody knows that finding models for a cam site is an essential step in this business, but finding the really good ones becomes a real challenge for many websites.

We prepared this article so you can have a clear vision about where should you start. How to find those performers, wherever they may be and convince them to appear on your website. You will discover different kind of approaches, tips and even exact website names so the process of finding the best models will be faster and easier.

Indeed, finding performers is a little bit of work. You have to post on different blogs, forums and advertise via social media.Primarily that implies that your performers have to either be really talented or they should just know how to put on a good show in front of the camera.

So let’s get started

 

There are 3 ways to find and hire performers for your online streaming business:

 

1 - ADVERTISEMENTS

2 - HEAD HUNTING

3 - SPAMMING & OTHER TECHNIQUES




1 - ADVERTISEMENTS


Just like any other business moving towards expansion, you’re going to have to put yourself out there and let the world of performers know that you’re hiring.

For that, it is preferred that you post an advertisement first. No one will know you’re hiring otherwise.

This advertisement can be in the form of a banner ad just like the ones you see popping up on the sides of any website you visit or if you’re really willing to go big you can use Google Ads, it might cost you a bit, but it’ll give you an edge over your competitors.

The best websites for posting advertisements are www.craigslist.org or www.indeed.com.

In order to receive maximum submissions make your advertisement stand out.

Show them how much money they can make or any other additional features you’ll be offering them and remember to leave a contact number or reference.

 


2 - HEAD HUNTING


This technique requires you to be persistent enough because you’re going to have to select the right performers.
Looking for talented performers whom you can predict will give your business the cutting edge. Once you’ve found the performers you want, it’s time to make the pitch.

Search for their contact details for example an email id or preferably a phone number.

Before you pursue these potential performers you need to be wary of the market trends; what the average income of a performer is, and what performers are actually looking for.

Once you’ve acquired all the knowledge, use it and transform it into a job offer that they simply cannot refuse.


3 - SPAMMING & OTHER TECHNIQUES

 

Even though it might be annoying to some but spamming is a good way to get your message across to a bigger audience.

Use different forums that relate to what kind of business you’re doing and post your ads on each and every forum you see.

Do it ten, twenty or even thirty times and it will get you more chances.

Other than that you can ask around in your social network or use your group of friends to spread the word about your business and the job you’re offering.

 

XBIZ — the industry hub

WeCamgirls Forum

StripperWeb

 

Other methods to employ are creating a banner to advertise the job offers directly on your platform and once you advertise the platform itself, broadcasters can see the job availabilities.

You can also search for studios that can provide the broadcasters for you. Tips for countries where you can find performers for Live Cam: Romania, Colombia, USA, Ukraine, Brazil, Russia, Spain etc.

 

These are just a few ways to get your business up and running.

But if you work on these guidelines effectively, sooner rather than later you’ll have a huge number of performers to choose from.

Remember, you’re offering them money so once they approach you, you’re the one in the driver’s seat.

Our best advice is to literally experience how it feels to be the owner of a camsite by trying our interactive demo for free. You can choose how to see the platform, either if you’re a user, a model or an admin. If you want to find out more, we are glad to offer some help.

How much money can I earn with a Live Cam website?

In this fast, stressed and anxious world, the need for social interaction has increased, just as the number of lonely men. This is a less positive fact, but on the other side, some businesses identified a very profitable opportunity to make money online. Yes, you guessed it, we’re talking about the Live Cam industry, which produces billions of dollars annually and it’s in continuous growth.

 

Single men are swapping tables at strip clubs for laptops in bed. Which makes a lot of sense, it's private, reliable, and arguably more intimate: members are able to check back in with their favorite models whenever they like. In the Live Cam industry, the models need to have some serious communication skills, they need to develop techniques to keep the users connected for a long period of time and they have to be entertaining, not just good looking. In conclusion, is not that easy as it seems in the first place to be a model.

 

The best advice we could give to a model is to invest in personal development because a good performer needs to have advanced English skills in order to have complex conversations with the users and to make them come back often. As we said, good looks are not enough, but with the proper training, even a mediocre looking person can become a successful model.

 

Either if you’re an aspiring model or you’re planning to open your own Live Cam website, this article will help you to make an overall image about how much money is the industry, how are the models getting paid, how much money goes to the studio, to the platform and so on.

Benefits of SaaS

In this article, we will give some advice on what you should take into consideration when it comes to an online platform, so if you plan to open your own online business you’re in the right place. If you’re curious about how can you benefit from SaaS, this is the right article for you.

You have a 3-step guide for a fast and easy understanding about how can you create your own platform, valuable information about hosting and last but not least, a short description about SaaS, so you can have an overview for a better understanding.

 

What is SaaS and why you should be excited about it’s existence?

SaaS for the tech industry is like the invention of the gunpowder for the military industry, once you use it, you can’t imagine working without it.

Thanks to SaaS you have everything in one place, the platform is hosted centrally, so an update is decided and executed by the provider, not by customers. It has a single configuration, making development testing faster, the solution provider has access to user behavior within the application making it easier to identify areas worthy of improvement.

SaaS is generally subscription-based and has resulting in lower initial costs.

What does this mean? It means that you don’t have to spend some extra thousands on additional to hire a team of tech guys. Using SaaS you can still have all the benefits of a high-end product with less effort and less money, so you can grow your business faster than ever.

You don’t have to worry about updates, hosting, maintenance and many other stuff.

In this article we will present you the pros and cons of SaaS, how can you develop your own platform, what are the procedures when it comes to support, payments or implementation.

 

How and why did SaaS appear?

Before Saas you had only these 2 options:

  • Develop your own platform from scratch
  • Purchase an open source platform

Then the SaaS technology came in and changed the market forever for all industries.

Let’s start from the beginning, the first thing you got to do is to:

 

  1. Develop your own platform

This means finding your development team for the Back-end, Front-end, Streaming implementation (live streaming), have interfaces for clients, broadcasters, for yourself, implement the option of online payments, other features such as Video implementation and many others.

Ok, you need to find your developers. In the IT world, projects are paid per hour of implementation and everyone has a price/hour.

For example, to implement just the Video Streaming option (for your broadcasters to upload videos), the cost is around $5000. This does not include anything else besides the Video Streaming, not Live streaming.

Now comes the planning part.

  1. What budget do you have and how much time can you invest in this project without having any kind of profit? Keep in mind that at this stage, you just invest.
  2. Find the development teams.

What is important to know? The development cost does not include only the development itself, but the following:

  • Discovery,
  • Implementation,
  • Testing,
  • Debugging,
  • Launching     

This means that besides developers you will need testers specialized in what the developers work on.

If you assign only one developer for each type of task, paired with only one tester, this could mean years of development and investment.

Depending on the experience and specialty of the developer, prices may vary a LOT, mainly between $45-$100/hour. By doing simple math, an average Live Streaming Platform with not so many features, make take around 1 year to develop. This means that you can spend between $394200 - $876000, just for a standard platform. If you’re interested in features to boost up the platform and make it more attractive, you empty your pockets even more.

Here there may occur some inconveniences. If you randomly assign developers without testing of their performance, you risk throwing money down the drain and spending even more, by assigning others to fix the issues and paying of course.

After the platform is ready, you need to think about the following:

  • Hosting
  • Support
  • Updates

 

Hosting: search for a service provider that offers servers fit for your platform. Prices vary a lot and you pay for the service every month. Why do you need servers? A platform without a server/multiple servers to run on equals lines of codes that only IT people understand.

Best servers out there? Cloud servers. Cost? Check Amazon Cloud Servers, Google Cloud Servers or Digital Ocean.

 

Support - for what exactly?

  • Bug fixes
  • Updates
  • Implementations
  • Emergency situations

It’s perfectly normal to encounter bugs big or small once you launch a product. Beta testing cannot accurately replicate a real case scenario in which real clients and real broadcasters use the platform. You need a team that works only on fixing the bugs once they occur, be prepared to open more servers if you have to and so on.

 

Updates - just take a minute and check how many updates are released every year on Desktop Browsers and mobile browsers.

For example: Google updated Chrome eight times in 2017, the most of any of the Big Four browsers.

What does this mean for your business? With each browser update, your platform can be less compatible. Clients don’t care, they access services that work. If Chrome releases an update, you need to release one, too, for your clients that use Chrome, and you need to make it fast. Otherwise, you lose business. This means you need a team that tracks the changes and implements the updates. If you wait too much for that update, the browser may release another update and so on.  

   

Implementations - you want to keep your clients interested in your business. This means that you have to evolve together with the times. Check what features become popular and implement them. This means that you will be investing money constantly, in order to keep your clients happy, otherwise, they’ll use other platforms, easy.

Payments?

How can you pay for the services?

You need to implement a payments system for the customers and a paying system for yourself (how else can you monitor how much to pay every broadcaster?).

After the system is implemented, you need to start working with a payment processor and integrate it on your platform (p.s. Only IT people know how).

After all this, you are ready to start the business and work on the business itself.

How?

 

Once the platform is ready, you need broadcasters on it. This means you need to start recruiting broadcasters, which can be done by yourself or pay other professionals to do that for you.

After you have broadcasters, you need clients!

This means marketing. This again can be done by yourself or via professionals that can offer that service for a cost.

 

Depending on the budget you still have after launching the platform, you can invest in finding broadcasters and clients faster. Or do it yourself and take a longer time. No services will offer you a 100% success rate for anything.

 

In a nutshell, there are advantages and disadvantages to this:

Advantages: No limits.

Disadvantages: Requires major investment, time-consuming, high risk.

The biggest disadvantage being that NOT everyone can do it. You either need to have a lot of money from another business, that you can invest. Or be backed by investors. Or Wind the lottery?

With investors, they can easily take their money back because they don’t want to wait for years to get their investment back.  

 

  1. Purchase an open source platform.

 

This was the best solution for people with a smaller budget (most of the people that want to have an online business).

 

What does this mean?

Well, a company with developers work on developing a code/ a framework for your future business. Open source means that you have access to the code, and can make any desired changes to it. If you have your own development team, of course.

 

There are several companies that can provide you software that would give you a basic structure of a cam site for a one-time payment. They give you various options to set up your site that works with your needs. Sometimes they also provide server services which help a lot.

So this means that you skip some of the parts of making your own platform from scratch, but you still need to work on the script itself, make changes to it and the rest.

 

In a nutshell, you purchase a code, that’s the start of your Live Streaming Business. You pay a fraction of the price, between $2000 - $10000. But, once you employ a development team on the open source platform, that team needs time to learn the structure of the platform, which you are paying for of course, and continue with developing the platform and implementing the features you further need.

To this you still need to add:

  • Hosting
  • Support
  • Updates

 

The company that provided you the open source script may have updates available, for which you have to pay. The risk here is that if your own team did not integrate the custom work accordingly, you will lose everything… and pay for it again….

 

Then you can start working on your business!

 

Advantages: Easier, somewhere average costs.

Disadvantages: Poor designs, limits in features, strong need of content.

 

  1. Now let’s talk about SaaS

 

SaaS stands for Software as a Service. Shortly, a company provides you with everything so you can focus only on your business. That means you don’t spend years on developing a product, others provide it for you.

 

Now why would this be better than open source? The company does everything for you, when I speak of everything, I mean everything. You purchase the License, they set up the hosting, offer you support services and offer you their own developers for custom work and know the code inside out.

 

Remember that example? That Chrome released in 2017, 8 updates. With SaaS services, the company intercepts those updates and update your platform as well, so your business won’t suffer.

 

Features? SaaS companies not only perform custom works for you, but they anticipate trends and also develop features that you can purchase them at a fraction of a price.

 

In a nutshell, SaaS is the future for Businessman that want to make money and have a team behind, without spending a fortune, or two…

This opens opportunities for everyone, you don’t need to wait to win the lottery, just contact us at www.avenocam.com

5 Steps to Start a Successful Live Cam Business

The world economy is slowly entering a recession and you’re asking how can you make money by starting a successful online business in the streaming industry.

The streaming industry is one of the fastest growing industries worldwide. With over 113% growth per year and to be estimated to be $70 billion (61 billion €).

Who enters the market now, will have the advantage of being a pioneer in a very successful business? Possible niches you can target are Live Cam, Entertainment, Gaming, Astrology, Psychic, Consultancy, E-Learning & Telemedicine.

Now you may ask yourself, how can I start such an online streaming business? Let’s take for instance a Live Cam Business to see how it works:

Here is a proven sequence of steps you can follow to start your successful Live Cam Online Business:

  1. Find a Live Cam Platform
  2. Find a Payment Gateway
  3. How to earn Money?
  4. Find Performers
  5. Get Paying Clients

 

Step 1: Find a Live Cam Platform

Finding a Live Cam Platform is more profitable than investing in making it from scratch. Nowadays, SaaS-companies can offer you the platform in just a few days and at just a fraction of the price!

This being said, please look for some of these features when searching for a platform:  

Live Video Streaming & Stream Quality – Make sure to choose HTML5 and not Flash since Flash will not be supported anymore on some browsers starting from this summer.

Mobile, Tablet and Desktop Compatibility – Today a platform needs to be universally compatible. Up to 85% of the clients use mobile and tablets when enjoying Adult Cam services.

Chat – Everyone needs to chat, just seeing the stream is not enough. Enhance the experience by providing a cool chat, that has not only text options, but also emojis and fun ways of writing.

Money system (tokens)  – Your clients need to have a method of purchasing tokens easy & fast, so they don’t lose interest in spending money on your platform.

Tips and different streaming rooms – Tipping is the core of adult cam businesses, this is how relationships between the client and the performer are built.

Administration Area  – You being the boss, you need your own admin area to manage your entire business and having an overview of your own business.

Hosting, Support, Update, Maintenance – these are a must have that you need to think about. Any platform needs constant support, update, and maintenance, in order to keep up with the demand. Hosting is a quintessential part without which the platform is not rolling.  

If you are interested in how a modern all-in-one live cam platform looks like, we invite you to test our software AVENOCAM online.

 

Step 2: Find Payment Gateway

What is a payment gateway? A payment gateway is your money-collector of the paying clients who come to your platform and buy your platform tokens.

You have to find one which is working in as many as countries as possible and accept different types of payments.

Because Live Cam Industry is such a niche industry you need a reliable partner. We really appreciate and recommend our partner CCBill, who unifies all those points.

 

Step 3: How to earn Money?

The Live cam industry has embraced and tested some business models – the successful ones have remained. There are many ways to succeed, it depends only on how you’d like to proceed.  

The Freemium Business Model is based on providing free streams to having hundreds of users. Since the room is free, the income comes from multiple constant tips and from the gallery content. Successful examples of such business models are Chaturbate.

The Premium Business Model is based on a limited amount of free chat followed by paid private rooms & tips. Premium already works by having few clients on the stream that are convinced by the performer to go into the paid rooms. A successful example of such a business model is LiveJasmin.

As you can see, both business models can be successful!  

Well, let’s detail Monetization a little bit. In different ways, clients reach your platform (-> Step 5). They check it and create accounts on it.

After creating accounts, they purchase tokens at a click. After clients bought tokens, their money goes right into your account. Clients spend the tokens on the platform and purchase more.

In the end, the platform generates the payments for your performers, so you know exactly who and how much to pay.    

 

Step 4: Find Performers

You may think you don’t know where to start from and it may be intimidating. Here is a small guide of how to find performers.

Just like any other business moving towards expansion, you’re going to have to put yourself out there and let the world of performers know that you’re hiring in the form of banner ads and advertisements.

Another way is to requires you to be persistent enough and hold the powers of a cunning detective, because you’re going to have to select the right performers. You will find them when surfing on different websites that fall under the category of the industry you want to enter. Once you’ve found the performers you want, it’s time to make the pitch. Search for their contact details, for example, an email address or preferably a phone number.

Additional you can ‘spam’ in different forums that relate to what kind of business you’re doing and post your ads on each and every forum you see. Do it ten, twenty or even thirty times and it will get you more attention.

Last but not least: Ask around in your social network or use your group of friends to spread the word about your business and the job you’re offering.

Tips for Countries where you can find a performer for Live Cam: Romania, Colombia, USA, Ukraine, Brazil, Russia, Spain etc. – Good luck!

 

Step 5: Get Paying Clients

Once you have the platform, the team, the performers, you need paying clients!

There are multiple ways to acquire those clients, here we will discuss 2 main types.

The classic way of getting clients: advertisements on specialized sites, SEM (search engineering marketing), and social media marketing. You can start with one of them, but frankly, the most helpful is a combo of all of them.

Another way is to use Intelligent Traffic. It is a new kid on the block, that makes the traditional traffic more efficient. DivaTraffic is one company that has adopted this new technology. DivaTraffic sends all the traffic just when performers are online.

This way, the platform gets popularised exactly when the performers are online, and the amount of traffic sent depends on how much traffic already exists on the performers’ rooms.
