Behind The Scenes: Outgoing Swag! (“Le Struggle”)

Life at Streamate HQ. Today’s adventure—

Sending out a shipment of “Serious F**king Business” swag, but ‘Oh no!’ We seem to have run out of a few supplies!

New Camera, Who Dis?!

Hey everyone!

Vanessa here! 🙂 I just received my new Canon Powershot G7X Mark II late yesterday evening, and I am so excited for the new video possibilities! I did a lot of research for the perfect cam that meets my needs, and although there’s a wealth of info online, it’s been a bit of a learning curve when it comes to non-webcam specs and terminology. lol ;p

I did a few tests today to acclimate to the new camera, get a feel for lighting and sound, and so far, it’s pretty amazing! I cannot wait to start using this camera for future announcements, tutorials, and live at shows that we attend.

Thank you to all who have continued to watch these videos. I look forward to getting the hang of my new equipment and sharing more with everyone in our community!

(VIDEO) HOT July Updates: SMConnect and New Features!

WATCH OUR JULY UPDATES VIDEO!

JULY NEWSLETTER UPDATES FOR JULY 12, 2018

HELLLO SUMMER! If you’re in the northern hemisphere, we hope you are enjoying all of the sun and warmth! Streamate decided to heat things up this month with the release of some great new features, including the rollout of its new non-Flash based model chat interface, SMCONNECT, which is now available for all models to try. Get onboard early and give SMCONNECT a test drive! SMCONNECT will eventually replace the current Flash-based chat interface over the coming years (Flash is scheduled to be eliminated from Chrome in 2020 and other web browsers in the near future). You may notice that it is missing a few key features, like Gold Shows and Cam2Cam… don’t worry! Streamate will be adding these features on SMCONNECT as we continue to build it out. 😉 The original (Flash) version of the Streamate Model chat interface will continue to be available as we build out SMCONNECT.

SMCONNECT was built with YOU in mind, so we hope you enjoy some of the new added features that are there to make your live cam experience more streamlined, like color/icon-grouped Quick Responses, dark/light themes, language preferences, and the integration of interactive vibrators (tip vibes)!

Also covered in this update is the multiple-video upload feature (COMING SOON), and new Sort feature under Earnings Reports that will allow you to sort your earnings according to different categories.

If you have questions, let us know! And don’t forget to use the feedback form from the SMCONNECT chat interface to let us know what you think about the updates!

“TOP 10: THINGS MODELS SHOULD LOOK FOR WHEN SHOPPING FOR A CAM SITE”

*CHECK OUT OUR “TOP 10 Q’s” highlight story on our IG to learn more about this post! 😉

Summertime is officially in full swing, and with this time of year comes an influx of camming newcomers who are in the market for a hot and profitable cam site. If you happen to be one of these enterprising individuals,  then use our list of TOP 10 things to look for in your cam site research to make the best decision for YOU (and also avoid potential headaches in the future)!

STREAMATE MODELS “TOP 10 THINGS MODELS SHOULD LOOK FOR WHEN SHOPPING FOR A CAM SITE”

(1) The actual camsite: is it a single website, or part of a larger network?

(2) How are earnings generated: is this a token-based/Free Show oriented site, or does the site focus on Private Shows? Also, what are the rules about nudity in Free Chat?

(3) Aside from shows, what are some of the other dynamic ways that you can earn income by creating a profile on this site?

(4) Privacy: is geo-blocking an option? Will my info remain confidential?

(5) Promotions: am I allowed to promote my social media platforms or otherwise?

(6) Traffic: is it provided for me, or am I responsible for my own traffic?

(7) Payment: what are the different payment methods that you offer? What is the payment schedule like? Are there payment delays that I should be aware of?

(8) Billing: does the site perform the billing on my behalf? Also, am I penalized for chargebacks?

(9) Contracts: is there exclusivity by joining this site, or is it a non-exclusive performer agreement? Also, how does termination work if I decide to close my account?

(10) Support: what methods of support are available for questions or if I need help?

 

There’s tons of info out there, including real feedback from other models who have used each site: take this feedback into consideration, but also remember that experiences are unique and will vary between individuals. In the end, it’s important to establish what your goals are and what is important to you/what you are comfortable with in order to make a sound decision when entering into camming or any form of sex work. It may take some trial and error to really figure out what will ultimately work best for you, but never hesitate to ask questions beforehand. Good luck 😉

PRIVATE SESSIONS – TERA PATRICK

RESUME

Multiple-award winning actress, Model, AVN Hall-of-Fame Inductee, Author, Producer, Mom-preneur, Cam Model w/ the Asian Persuasion. 

PART ONE

PART TWO

I’ll be totally honest and admit that I was nervous as all hell, but so delighted to interview Tera Patrick- an adult performer of nearly 2 decades, savvy businesswoman, a name that’s recognized among even the most vanilla of households, and now cam model. (Also, ‘hello…Asian girl power!‘ )

Tera has continued to evolve her business following her retirement from shooting hardcore adult film (circa 2010), along with the ever changing landscape of adult. So when I noticed Tera’s live cam on Streamate a few years ago, it piqued my curiosity. She is not the first adult star celeb to grace the digital pages of the Streamate Network (cue Rocco Siffredi and Amy Fisher to name a couple), but to really build a foundation and thrive on cam, as Tera is aware, takes commitment, consistency, and time.

Being that nearly everyone and their mother (like, literally) in our industry, from pornstars to producers and affiliates, have been jumping aboard the live cam-train for the past handful of years, I was curious to see just how Tera was applying this trendy “new” medium to her own mega brand, and adapting to the unpredictable, unscripted world of live cam.

A daughter of immigrants, Tera explained that her parents have a super hard work ethic, which she herself inherited (… along with a gorgeous bone structure and legs for days. ‘Yeah, we’re not jealous at all’). This work ethic is super handy when it comes to the, at times, challenging world of cams: one does not merely “kill it” overnight by  logging off after an hour and calling it a day. Even for adult royalty like Tera, it takes persistence and so much more. Tera has immersed herself into research from lighting, to branding, and how others are running their shows. She explains, “We can all learn from each other…that’s what I love about this community.”

“Sissy boys, subs”… Tera seems to have a firm grip on the everyday cam lingo. “SPH…JOI…CEI”… as in Cum-Eating-Instruction. She totally schooled me with the last one. *nervous laughter* What inexperienced cam enthusiasts will eventually come to realize is that camming isn’t just a facet of porn. It’s an artform that individuals pour themselves into and stay up late toiling over. It’s a lifestyle, sometimes isolating, that individuals connect over and share about on forums on a daily basis. But with that lifestyle come some realities that you don’t read about in the articles that rage about camming- realities that a lot of models experience every day like feeling emotionally drained if a viewer is being a total jerk and telling her she is ugly. Or maybe sh*t is going down in Twitterland and people are being completely negative. Tera advocates for performers to remember to “have a life outside of this life,” and stepping away to take care of themselves- a practice that she also lives by.

During our chat, Tera talks candidly about her background, her experiences as a blossoming cam model, her business model at present, and much more. In true Tera fashion, grab a glass of wine, light some candles, maybe even slip into your fave lingerie and tune into Parts One and Two of our exclusive “Private Sessions” interview with Ms. Tera now!

What an insane past couple of weeks it has been at Streamate HQ! From FOSTA/SESTA updates to the closure of First Choice Pay, Streamate teams got into gear to make sure everyone who is a part of the Streamate fam is covered during this time of transition. Although there are a still a few more kinks to work out following some of these unforeseen events, SM wanted to show gratitude to its model community and to also help everyone stay motivated— so we figured bringing back Bonus Week was an excellent way to do this. 🙂
