Revshare… It’s a beautiful thing.

If you really think about it, it’s a surreal concept.

All it takes is one person — the right person —  signing up under your affiliate link and spending a little money to fund your life for years to come.

Some of us have already had the good fortune of landing one or more of these visitors with money to burn over the course of our affiliate marketing careers. For others, this day is what dreams are made of.

We're going to let you in on a little secret: Whales — the “big spenders” of the world — are very much a real thing; these Whales make the world go round and can be found everywhere.

These guys play a pivotal role in the industry and they certainly add to the excitement of adult marketing.

For the sake of discussion, we’ll be focusing on a Revshare model that applies to the online cam industry―and a rationale that too often, prevents people from promoting Revshare campaigns.

The most common “Anti-Revshare” rationales that are hurting people’s wallets

1- “It takes too long, ain’t nobody got time for that!”

Those who believe a Revshare model is not worthy of their time must not be too familiar with this little profound quote:

The trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit.”

― Moliere

2- “Revshare?! But nobody pays for porn!”

Nevermind the fact that this argument has been done to death, and nevermind the fact that we know firsthand that this simply isn't true...

We’re not here to renew the debate—we’re here to make the point that a live interactive cam site such as an adult webcam community is so much more than a traditional porn site; so much so, it shouldn’t even be classified as porn.

Cam sites = interaction and live entertainment.

You can’t pirate live entertainment. There’s people out there who live for this.

For this reason alone, you can’t compare an interactive cam site to a traditional tube site/paysite model.

3- “I make more $$$ with PPL”

Maybe you do right now, but as the ol’ saying goes. . .


Translation: If your rationale for promoting PPL over Revshare is because you don't think your traffic will yield any Revshare paid conversions… why would you think your traffic is good enough for PPL?!

Remember, a PPL program is a calculated risk exercise for a sponsor

  • Affiliates get paid an agreed-upon price for each lead that they send;
  • The sponsor hopes and expects the lead that they just paid for to convert on their end, at some expected ratio, at some point in time.

Therefore, if your leads at the end of the day are quality enough and sustainable enough for a long-term PPL relationship, you're selling yourself short by not going the Revshare route long term.

Because there’s a good chance you’re missing out on rebills!

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again..

Rebills are, in essence, like "residual checks" for affiliate marketers

Your fruits of labor from another time period is a constant reminder each time you cash that Revshare check!

“Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.”

― Forrest Gump’s Mom

Forrest Gump’s mom was on to something here...

This quote very much applies to all the major cam platforms available today, and all the generous men and women who frequent these interactive sites.

The same philosophy applies to a cam site tipper; you never know what they’re gonna tip.

The biggest mistake you can make... is underestimating human relationships & human dynamics when RevShare is involved

For those Revshare naysayers out there, one should also never underestimate...


Male or female, if someone’s going to spend money on a cam site, what’s stopping them from spending A LOT of money?

Once you understand this, and understand the people who are using cam sites... sky’s the limit.

If you’ve ever felt like a Revshare model might not be right for you, we really do recommend spending 20-30 minutes on any of the major cam sites. In this brief amount of time, we guarantee you’ll get a glimpse at what we’re talking about here.

You'll see loyal regulars tipping girls galore.

And in the end, there’s no better endorsement for Revshare than seeing first-hand just how awesome and eager to please most of the models are.  These girls are always going to do their best to make money, and when you choose a Revshare program, you’re in essence banking on them!

If, at the end of the day, you’re still someone without a Revshare plan — throw all that rationale out the window for not having Revshare plan and give a Revshare campaign a try today!
