But not only, we also integrated tools in WPLiveCam that makes your cam site really easy to monetize thanks to the oldest and most popular way to make online money: affiliate marketing programs.

Whether you are looking for extra bucks or plan to start a long-time journey to make a decent passive income, this guide is for you.

What is an adult webcam affiliate program?

It's definitely the best and the easier way to make an online income.

The idea of affiliate programs is simple. It can be defined as a partnership between two sides : on one side there is the advertiser (that could be any online business) who wants to sell a product or a service and on the other side the affiliate who will recommend the product and earn a percentage everytime a person buys the advertiser's product by clicking on his affiliate link.
In this situation you would be the affiliate. In a nutshell, you redirect your traffic to the advertiser offer and earn a commission for every customer that you bring.

Affiliate marketing is a win-win situation, both for the merchant (advertiser) and the affiliate. The merchant won't pay for useless marketing promotion as the affiliate payout is based on sales generated. At the same time, if it's done right, be assured that the revenues possibilities are insane for the affiliate.

Different adult webcam affiliate programs

It exists multiple affiliate programs pricing models and it's quite important to know them, but keep in mind that these commission models are different from a cam site to another:

Pay-per-lead (PPL)

As an affiliate, you will get paid everytime you bring a lead to the advertiser. A lead is a visitor who can possibly be interested by the product sold by the advertiser. In adult cam sites business, a visitor that creates an account for free will be considered as a lead and you will get paid by the cam platform (like Chaturbate) if you bring them visitors that sign-up with their emails. The revenue is quite low per sign-up (from 0,50 to maximum 2 dollars) but the conversions are better. Pay-per-lead is also called pay-per-free or pay-per-email in cam sites affiliate programs. Not to be confused with pay-per-signup which is a slightly different.

Pay-per-signup (PPS)

With this pricing model, the affiliate earns instantly for a qualified new customer he brings to the adult cam site. Contrary to pay-per-lead, a qualified customer is a visitor that signed-up for free and that made his first purchase. For example, as a cam webmaster affiliate, you will earn up to $150 if one of your WPLiveCam site visitor created an account in LiveJasmin and purchases its first tokens on models. The pay-per-signup commission is usually lower than pay-per-lead or revshare but each conversion gives you a lot of money.

Revshare (REV)

Also called lifetime revshare, the revshare program allows you to earn a percentage on every single purchase at any moment by one of the customer your brought to the platform, for lifetime. You won't receive commission for a user that registers for free but will receive a percentage each time this purchases credits (or tokens). Now multiply it by the number of users referred by you and imagine the possibilities.
But be careful, choosing revshare lifetime should be a well-considered choice and we highly recommend this for long-term strategy.

Now, how does it work to make money with WPLiveCam?

There are 2 different ways to monetize your WPLiveCam site : affiliate programs (as said previously) and displaying ads on your theme.

First, let's see in details how you will make money with WPLiveCam as an affiliate cam webmaster.

WPLiveCam and affiliate programs

For this section, let's pretend you already purchased and installed WPLiveCam Theme. But if you didn't already, do not run away! I'm pretty sure this monetizing part will make up your mind ;)

In few words : with WPLiveCam your content = your way to monetize. You setup both at the same time.

Contrary to adult VOD site in which you have to integrate plenty of ads banners, popunders, pre-roll mid-roll and everything related, with WPLiveCam, your content is the key.

First, you have to go to your dashboard and add a cam site:

Select a Cam Site
Add a Cam Site

Remember, you are not limited to a single source choice. You can add multiple cam sites into your theme, mix the content and generate revenues from different affiliate programs you already signed-up for. 13 cam sites sources are currently available in WPLiveCam including the well-known (Chaturbate, StripChat, BongaCams, LiveJasmin...) and more are about to come.

For this example, let's take LiveJasmin source only to make it easier to understand. Once you've chosen the source, you'll have to configure it to add your affiliate ID and start generating revenues.

Add LiveJasmin to WPLiveCam Theme

Once you've chosen the source, you'll have to configure it to add your affiliate ID and start generating revenues.
Keep in mind that the affiliate ID is the one given to you by the cam site (AWEmpire for LiveJasmin), not by us.

This affiliate link is important : it's used to track the traffic thanks to a cookie implemented in the visitor's browser. Every sale or subscription will be recorded so that the affiliate program will gives you the payout based on these sales.

You don't have one single affiliate ID for all the sources, every single cam site has its affiliate program and you must paste the affiliate ID related to the source.

For example, if you choose LiveJasmin, then you'll have to paste your AWempire affiliate ID (AWEmpire is the name for LiveJasmin affiliate program) in the PSID blank area and choose between pay-per-signup or revshare program.

Configure your affiliate program

As a cam affiliate webmaster, you role is to redirect traffic to the offer so that you will earn a percentage for every visitor that will purchase tokens. As you can see at the bottom of the model stream, WPLiveCam theme embeds 2 call-to action (CTA) that will push your visitors to click on it.

Once your visitor clicks on “private show” or “type text” to chat with the model, he will automatically be redirected to the LiveJasmin model page and you will earn money once he becomes a LiveJasmin member and purchases its first tokens!

Our advice: Chaturbate pay-per-lead program doesn't seem very interesting except who are sure that they gather a high-qualified traffic to their cam site. It could be frustrating to refer lot of new customers to Chaturbate for cents and imagine, months after what you could've earn if you went for revshare months after.
But be careful, it all depends on your strategy and your need. In a nutshell, revshare = long-term, pay per lead = short-term.
