So you have your Streamate live cam established, your fanbase is growing, and you may be wondering at this point how you can maximize your Streamate footprint… and profits. Or perhaps you’re new to Streamate, but you already have an established online presence and you’re looking for versatility beyond just your live cam shows.
We’re about to share 4 ways that you can test the versatility of your Streamate profile, increase your earning potential, and deepen the ways in which you connect with your biggest Streamate fans.
This feature is essentially your video management hub on Streamate. With a bit of creativity, you can utilize this feature in a number of versatile ways to monetize (including passive income when you’re offline), incentivize fans to take action or join your shows, and create deeper connections with fans.
- Upload, then easily send and sell videos from your profile
- Option to add videos to your profile for “free” or for “sale”
- Option to mark videos as “Private” so they will not be publicly visible, but can be privately shared with members
- Send videos to any members who have spent money on you within a 2-week period
- Send videos to up to 100 members at a time
- You can set your price for videos up to $49.99
- Payout for Video Gallery sales is 50% (95% payout if purchased by your cammodels.com referred members)
Ways to use it:
- Enhance your profile by posting free featured videos and teasers
- Introduce members to your catalog of video content so that they can continue to watch when you’re offline
- Use videos from Video Galleries as an incentive, reward, or up-sell during your live shows(ex. If you contribute at least $15 GOLD during this Gold Show countdown, I’ll send you my newest video!)
- Any guests who appear in videos must already have the required ID documents and e-signatures on file on your account. To add a guest, contact Model Support at streamatehelp.com/support, and request to “add a guest performer’s documents to your account.”
- No music is permitted in Video Galleries videos. (Pre-approved stock music playlist *coming soon*)
- Videos that appear within Video Galleries must first be reviewed and approved by Streamate’s review teams. This can take anywhere from 24-72hrs on average, so if a video is time-sensitive, be sure to upload it for approval well in advance of your targeted release date.
- File size limit for video uploads is currently 1GB.
Partner Site Integration
Have a personal site/member site/fan site? This feature gives members an option to join your external member site or fan site directly from your Streamate profile with a click of a button! By linking your member site as a Streamate-integrated Partner Site, Streamate members who join your site will enjoy the added bonus of discounts on your live cam shows on Streamate!
- Gives members access to additional content on your member site that isn’t on your Streamate profile
- Models who have integrated a Partner Site will have a special button for members to “Join My Site” on their profile
- Streamate members who join your Partner Site will also receive a discount on your future live shows (you determine the discount %)
- Choose your monthly membership rate that you’d like to charge Streamate members who join your Partner Site
- SM handles the monthly member payments for your Partner Site, and these earnings will be added to your Earnings Report as “Paysite.”
- Payout is 46% of total earnings billed through Partner Site
Ways to use it:
- Streamate will act as your intermediate payment processor for secure monthly membership payments
- Open your Streamate fans up to the rich content contained on your member site, such as your blog, exclusive pictures and videos, etc.
- Offer your Streamate fans another way to connect with you, even when you’re off-cam
- Tap into potential memberships through the wealth of traffic on the Streamate Network
- Fan sites set up through Modelcentro also qualify for Partner Site Integration through Streamate!

External Site Shows
Running an External Site Show essentially allows you to embed your Streamate profile onto your “external” member site, where your members will be able to watch your live cam shows for free!
- Your member site subscribers/members can enjoy your External Site Shows for free directly from a designated area on your member site
- Streamate members will also be able to join in on your ESS – they will be billed per-minute at your chosen rate, while your member site members can watch the same show for free, simultaneously
- You can also perform Gold Shows using the ESS feature
- You will appear as being in a continuous “Private” chat session on the Streamate-end so long as you are performing an ESS: you will not go in and out of Free Chat as you usually would in a standard live chat session
- Once you have concluded your ESS session, simply switch the “External Show” button on your Streamate chat interface to “OFF”
- Setting up an ESS is a complimentary feature offered by Streamate!
Ways to use it:
- Raise awareness about your live cam shows by embedding your streamate profile directly onto your member site.
- Schedule regular (weekly/monthly, etc.) ESS just for your member site members
- Use this feature as a selling point for new membership joins on your member site
- Use this feature as a special reward that is exclusive to members of your site
- Being in an ESS will have an impact on your placement- use this feature on an as-needed basis
- To set your Streamate profile up for External Site Show capability, make a request to Streamate Model Support and include a link to the exact page on your member site where you’d like your Streamate profile to appear. Support will send you a series of codes to embed directly onto your member site (or have your webmaster assist with this). Once this feature has been enabled on your profile, you will see an “External Show” button appear within your Streamate chat interface: switch it “On” or “Off” accordingly.
Gold Shows have maintained their popularity as a top feature on the Streamate platform since their debut circa 2012. This group-oriented show allows you, the model, to set the parameters for every aspect from the theme of your show, down to how much you earn before you will start performing.
- Allows you to set a monetary goal that customers can chip in to meet/exceed before you start the actual Gold Show
- You determine the one-time buy-in amount that will give your viewers a steep discount over your regular pay-per-minute shows
- Showcase some of your best-selling themes (ex. squirting, toy riding, hardcore bj, etc.) during Gold Shows, which may help you land more privates and exclusives after the show concludes.
- Explore your own creativity when deciding on Gold Show themes and countdown incentives.
- Prompt “highest GOLD contributor” status using the “show the top GOLD contributors” option, which will reveal your top 3 GOLD contributors during each Gold Show countdown.
- Engage the “shy” or “first-time” users in your room using this show format.
Ways to use it:
- Use them as a teaser for your regular private shows… a “commercial” of sorts.
- Use Gold Shows to showcase your versatility. In my opinion, Gold Shows aren’t the most conducive for taking individual requests, so you can pre-determine exactly what you offer through these shows and give customers a sneak-peek into some of the themes that maybe they didn’t even think they’d be into.
- Sometimes you have shy customers that may be intimidated or have a difficult time with taking you into a Private or Exclusive as much as they’d want to on your own, so GS’s kind of help to alleviate those anxieties by facilitating a group show setting.
- If you’re a heavy planner, Gold Shows are one way to figure out how you’re going to utilize your time online in advance (ex. I’m going to spend 3 hours online this morning, and will allow a total of 40 minutes for Gold Shows… x2 10-minute countdown’s, x2 10-minute Gold Show performances).
- Utilize videos that have been uploaded and approved in your Video Gallery to prompt user participation (ex. ‘Highest Gold contributor for this Gold Show receives my newest video!’)
- Be sure that you are hardwired (no wireless Internet!)! You don’t want to reach your Gold Show goal, only to lose the funds because of connection issues.
- Gold Shows make an excellent go-to option to shake up your room when there is traffic, but nobody is committing to a Private session.
- Works with External Site Shows.
- Users that watch your Gold Shows will NOT be able to rate you- only members who have done regular paid shows will be able to leave ratings. Always make sure to mix in regular paid shows in order to maintain and/or raise your profile rating.
