" The use of multiple traffic sources may prove the best way to fuel a cam site, while ensuring that traffic levels remain consistent and profitable. "

Whether it is a simple live cams link within a paysite members’ area or a similar lead on a free site’s navigational bar, or other hyperlink example, driving traffic to a live cam site can be as simple as letting your existing customers know where to find it.

Approaches that are more aggressive involve the heavy use of marketing tools such as live previews, models currently online and other means of underscoring the live and interactive nature of these offers; with blogs and other sites built to promote particular performers and their cam schedules holding a level of traction that is easy to develop and personalize.

Social media marketing is another valuable advertising venue for live cam promoters, with Twitter updates being an effective way to announce imminent shows while adding a highly personal touch.

Pop-under advertising is also a proven way to drive traffic to adult cam sites, as evidenced by the long-term commitment made to this marketing vehicle by industry behemoth AWE. While controversial in some quarters, their ad buys and quality of service have propelled this live cam company to the top.

There are a number of adult advertising networks that offer “cam traffic” on a cost-per-click (CPC), cost-per-thousand (CPM), or other basis, allowing cam site promoters to quickly bolster visitor volume, but seeking professional pre-buy advice from network reps should be a part of your purchase plan.

Consider also the value of a well-run Google AdWords campaign to drive targeted traffic to your live cam site or affiliate white label. Indeed, any related-term search reveals that most of the major players are using this well-proven traffic source. Displaying dozens of millions of organic search results for many common adult webcam search phrases, a generous AdWords budget may be the only way your offer will be seen in the face of MyFreeCams.com, PussyCash’s and other companies dominance in the free listings.

Regardless of how you go about your promotional strategy, the use of multiple traffic sources may prove the best way to fuel a cam site, while ensuring that traffic levels remain consistent and profitable.
