How Cam Girl Can Make Money With Affiliate Link

by Alex Shwarz on March 2, 2010 · 14 comments

Every cam girl spends most of the time online interacting with fans or looking for new fans. But many just don’t realize how easy it is to make money online besides doing private cam shows. I’m going to show how you can make extra cash by doing affiliate marketing. But first we need to clarify what is affiliate link and who are affiliates.

Affiliate is a sales person on the Internet who earns commission from every sale made. But on Internet everything is a little different than in real life. To make a sale all you need to do is to send customer to the web site you are affiliated with. If this customer buys anything on that site you will get your commission. And to send customer you need him to click a special link which is called affiliate link.

Let me make an example if it sounds too confusing. Lets say you become an affiliate of Once you registered as affiliate Amazon gives you affiliate link like this:<Your_Affiliate_ID>

, where  <Your_Affiliate_ID> is unique ID assigned to you by Amazon. If somebody goes to Amazon via this link and buys something you will get 4% of the amount spent.

Well that was a basic example to help you understand how all this works. Most likely you are not interested in being affiliate for Amazon. But how about cam networks you work for?

Every cam network has an affiliate program. For example if you work for LiveJasmin just check out at the very bottom of they site and you will find Webmaster Wanted link.  Once you register as affiliate you will get your very special affiliate link. And now the magic happens. When you give this link to one of your fans (who is not registered with LiveJasmin yet) and he buys your show, you’ll earn $40 (even if he spends just few minutes in private). Or you can choose to use a different kind of affiliate link that will bring you 20% of what he spends on LiveJasmin for life with you or any other model.

Warning: you can’t share your affiliate link in free chat of cam networks you are working for. It’s against their terms of service. Also make sure you check with your network if it allows to open affiliate account besides having model’s account. Some cam networks don’t allow their models to become affiliates (which I think is really stupid).

All of this should sound good but you might be wondering how you can share your affiliate link with fans if you can’t dot this in free chats on cam networks. Here are some of many ways how you can do this:

1. Your Personal Blog

If you have your own blog you can put affiliate links inside your posts and on the side bar. This is how many people make money with blogs. If you keep your blog regularly updated your fans will come  back to read new posts. And these new posts can have affiliate links that will be clicked. The more fans your blog has the more money you can make through affiliate links. Plus you will get search engines traffic as well. I know people who make $50,000 – $100,000 a month(!) on their blogs in mainstream. And with adult content it’s much easier to build a solid fan base.

2. Twitter

I’ve already written how you can build a solid fan base on Twitter. When you treat your Twitter fans good and keep them updated with teasing pictures and videos they will be eager for every update you post. So once in a while you can put your affiliate link in one of the updates and many of your fans will follow this link and possibly make a purchase earning you the commission.

3. Forums

Forums can be another place where you can share your affiliate links in forum threads. You may start your own thread or you may participate in existing ones. Just make sure that your forums posts with affiliate links look natural, otherwise you will be banned for spamming.

4. Commenting On Other Blogs

Most of the blogs allow to comment on their posts. So you can post a comment with your affiliate link in it. Note that comments get moderated by real person before they are published so make sure it provides some value to the post. Otherwise blog owner won’t approve it.

5. Amazon

Ha-ha. We are going back to Amazon here. I’ve already written how you can build a wish list on Amazon to get gifts from your fans. And I’ve also explained above how Amazon’s affiliate program works. So you can combine these two together. You send your fans to buy something from your wish list through your affiliate link. No matter if your fan buys something from your wish list or buy something for himself, if he makes a purchase within 24 hours of using your affiliate link you’ll get your 4% commission.


Ok, that was a long post but I hope very worse reading. The point of all this is that by working as cam model you interact with your fans online a lot. During this communication you can send links in one form or another. Many sites whose links you send have affiliate programs. So why not to use a chance to earn extra cash? People make thousands dollars a day doing this in mainstream so why cam girls can’t take advantage of this as well?

Great article – I currently have affiliate accounts, but I noticed when I checked my traffic analysis, I don’t get a lot of traffic to my “favorite links” page, where I have my affiliate links. How do I get more traffic to this page??

2 Alex Shwarz 03.04.10 at 6:50 pm

“favorite links” pages don’t work anymore as they used to 5-10 years ago. How often do you check “favorite links” page on other sites? I bet not that much. The most affective way for affiliate links to work is to include them into blog posts. When you keep your site updated regularly (through blog posts) your site visitors will come back to check your updates. So when you include affiliate link in your update there is a good chance it will be clicked. For example you may write a blog post about your cam show that you did on LiveJasmin and make the word “LiveJasmin” linkable using your affiliate link (like I just did here). So when your curious reader wants to check what LiveJasmin is, he click this link and gets to LiveJasmin website. If he buys a show from any of the models you will get your cut.

This is a great topic! I have been trying to tell people this for the longest time. Real money is actually made through affiliate programs and not the webcam shows themselve (typically). What I think I like best about affiliate programs is the fact that you can make money even when not online which is deffinitly something I can’t do when I perform webcam shows lol. The best part I think about affiliate programs is the fact that I can still earn money when I have my period and cant perform on my website! haha. You should reccommend hcams to the girls on here! I don’t want you to think this is spam or anything but deffinitly send girls interested in making money there. It is an affiliate program sister for streamate. Basically you sign up for a webmaster account and once you are approved you post your link places and when a user signs up for free thru your link they send you $50. I’m not even kidding you its awesome. I managed to make 650$ last week in signups alone just from promoting my referall links thru my blog and website. They actually pay on time too and every single week through check or epassporte. THAT CANT BE BEAT!

hope you find it useful and more girls learn about this! hopefully not too many though because I dont want to have competetion :-p.

If anybody wants to use the program I would love if you used my webmaster referall link since I gave yall this tip! The link is

thanks icam!

I meant to post that last comment with my picture in avator, not sure what happened

7 Alex Shwarz 04.20.10 at 5:58 pm

Thanks April for this long and very informative comment. You made a great point that with affiliate links you can earn money while you sleep or out of computer. This is what all this “work from home” shit is about in mainstream internet. Few days ago I received $75 check from affiliate sale made from website I created a couple of years ago and never touched it again. That was good surprise! The point is when you leave your affiliate link in as many places as you can you will be getting such nice surprises too Lol

Well, you can’t make money quick these days Lol . Contact me via my contact page and we’ll see how can I help you

12 April Wood 01.14.13 at 3:17 pm

Just a quick update on my previous comment. This program is still working great! I am still bringing home great checks and I dont even go on cam anymore or advertise their $50 pay per signup! I have not been on cam in over 2 years and am still bringing home a great monthly check from hcams using their revshare program! I strongly urge you all to follow my link and check it out, , YES my referall link ID is in it but that is so I get credit if you DO decide to try it after checking it out..

This is no BS, and a good extra way to make some side cash without doing much. Email me if you have any questions!
