Stay 10 steps ahead of the game with this easy to follow guide.
1 - Takeover the CAM4 Instagram accounts!
This is an incredible way to get exposure to new and eager fans :)
DM @CAM4 on Twitter with the following info:
- Your CAM4 username
- Upcoming dates you would like to check are available
- For takeovers you will need to include your Instagram handle.
We will reply to you in the DM so make sure you check back with us!
2 - Our brains judge how good something is by the peak of excitement felt during the experience, and the ending.
This would imply that we put more effort on how we END our shows rather than begin it.
To maximize this effect, I recommend:creating a ritual (or tradition) of how you end your show. This could be an article of clothing, a particular action, or closing song/speech you give at the end of your shows. Almost like your signature. This would allow people to have a solid memory they would take away from your shows and talk to others about.
3 - A positive state of mind will attract positive results.
It sounds obvious but being negative is not fun to watch, attitude is a choice and it affects your success.
4 -Guide your viewers eye line.
Use lines of site to draw the eye to the TIP button on your broadcast window. Using simple tricks like positioning a colorful room decoration, or gesturing to the lower left side of your viewers screen is a silent way to ask for tips.
5 - Connect your twitter to CAM4
We tweet 15 min before your scheduled show, and again 5 min after you have actually started your broadcast. Viewers who subscribe to your CAM4 Calendar will also receive a browser notification they can click on to instantly enter your room. You can tweet directly from your broadcast window, and it includes the URL link so your Twitter followers are just a click away from you.
6 - Use Twitter Analytics
Twitter analytics is a powerful tool that lets you see how your fans are engaging with you. You can see where your fan base is, what they are into, how many views your tweets are getting, and what tweets got you the most attention.
You can see more about Twitter Analytics here.
7 - Use the color Red to get attention.
8 - Play it cool!
Don’t jump all over your big tippers when they come into your room. This may make them feel awkward, insult others in the room, make your tipper feel like an ATM, and possibly open that tipper up to annoying invites to other rooms. Treat them all with respect, you never know what will happen in your room today, a fan might just surprise you and spoil you when they were only silent before.
9 - Record yourself!
Watching your own show is the best way to improve, if you don’t see what you are doing you will never know what you are doing right. Always ask yourself would I watch me?
10 - SMILE!
Its amazing how much more inviting your room is when you are smiling. Seeing yourself smile in your broadcast window will keep you and your viewers in a great mood.
~That’s all for this lesson!
