" The product is targeted towards performers that may be using the social networks for staying connected with fans but lack a place to share private moments with their most supportive followers. "

Among the most pronounced trends in online adult entertainment has been the move of talent into the role of producer and distributor — where direct access to fans via live cams, social media and other channels may provide a healthier and more profitable path than the one currently being offered by some studios today.

Underpinning this evolution is the advancement of easy-to-use publishing platforms, such as WordPress — as well as a new breed of mission specific adult oriented venues.

For example, AdultCentro recently announced the launch of ModelCentro, its new model-to-fan platform that empowers performers at all levels to launch their own paysite, turning their fans into recurring profits.

“You make magic, we help you turn it into a business,” explains a ModelCentro rep. “When you perform, the outpouring of support from fans feeling the connection is magic. [ModelCentro] keeps that connection and support flowing even when you’re offline.”

Unlike their earnings from live cam shows, which only accrue when they are online and working, ModelCentro allows models to schedule releases even while away from the computer, so performers can continue earning even when they are offline and living life.

AdultCentro offers cutting-edge technology and services, empowering companies to focus on their core businesses while AdultCentro handles their infrastructure and technology needs using B2B platforms such as AdultCentro Publisher, Market, Cloud, CentroBill, and ModelCentro, for a comprehensive services approach.

ModelCentro uses a straightforward point-and-click interface, so no website building experience is required.

The product is targeted towards performers that may be using the social networks for staying connected with fans but lack a place to share private moments with their most supportive followers. The system fills this void, providing social network functionality with the privacy performers’ need, while helping them to create and run their own paid membership sites.

“ModelCentro delivers the site design, content management, billing and all the other back-end services critical to having a professional site,” ModelCentro CEO Stan D’Aman reports. “Traditionally, most models relied on webmasters to create their sites for them, because the setup and infrastructure requirements were too challenging.”

“We empower models to have their own site without being held hostage to their webmaster,” D’Aman added, underscoring the liberating nature of the product which puts control within the performer’s grasp, without bogging them down with technical details.

Its simple operation belies the flexibility and power of ModelCentro, which features high quality images, live shows and videos, along with a blog, private messaging and full connectivity with social media. The site’s boast compatibility with tablets and all other devices, while performer’s privacy is protected through geographical and region based blocking, which prevents users from logging in from specific countries, cities and more.

The company notes that it’s a mobile world now and models don’t want to be tied to a desk all day, which is something they kept in mind while developing ModelCentro.

“ModelCentro is designed to let you build your business around your life instead of building your life around your business,” the rep stated, adding, “ModelCentro’s mobile friendly interface lets you manage your business on the go wherever you are.”
