White labeling is a very common practice in the adult entertainment industry. In affiliate marketing, a white label is a product or service that is developed and built by one company but branded and sold by another under the selling company’s branding. Nevertheless, white labels for camming come in a few forms. White label affiliate sites for a major camming platform could be as simple as launching custom landing pages or embedding widgets from a particular camming platform onto your site.
White labeling cam sites can appeal to webmasters and cam models who are trying to generate passive and active income. In theory, white label cam sites are simple to deploy from an affiliate marketing platform, with most of the camming platforms providing the white label giving webmasters the ability to “bring your own domain” and their traffic. Stripcash, the affiliate program for Stripchat, offers tools for webmasters to create landing pages and white label sites with a CMS attached and an API giving access to the entire database of models that are active on the Stripchat network. Some cam affiliate networks that offer white labeling allow webmasters to earn commissions on sign-ups and tokens. It should also be noted that most cam white labels pay a rev share percentage varying by each network.
ImLive.com, another prominent adult camming site, provides white labeling too. ImLive.com has built Webcamwiz as an affiliate white label platform that provides branding and custom color schemes to sites that bring their own domains and are able to take advantage of ImLive’s database of sexy broadcasters.
Sites built on Webcamwiz can generate funds through rev share, per-member conversions, and more.
Some options for launching your adult live cam site include prebuilt web scripts provided by companies like Adent.io and CamScripts.com. Adent.io developed its own scalable adult cam site script known as xCams. xCams, according to Adent.io, provides the tools to create an adult streaming cam website like LiveJasmin, MyFreeCams, and Chaturbate. Adent.io sells its platform as a “plug and play” platform. Also, CamScripts.com develops Fluffvision. Fluffvision is an adult webcam software that powers several live cam websites on the internet. Fluffvision provides pay per minute, performer tupping, and model VOD.
Adent.io sells the xCams script for $699 and the xCams Pro script for $999.
Fluffvision Beta 4 by CamScripts.com starts at $289 for a complete script attached to one domain. The complete scripts are also attached to two domains, or three domains, for $389 and $489 respectively.
2much.net offers Miricam. Miricam is another turnkey adult camming site script that handles large volumes of traffic and users. Miricam is utilized by adult sites, psychics, coaching businesses, and more.
The Miricam licenses begin at $2,100 for a one-time payment. Premium versions of the web script are one-time payments of $4,100 for unlimited broadcasters and $7,100 for a set of full features. Miricam also works with MBase, which is a script by 2much.net that distributes your main site’s live streams to other cam sites like clones of your original site or if you have an affiliate white label program in place.
For cam models who are interested in growing only their personal branding and presence, there are many options to create and scale a personal live cam site. Model Centro, for example, is an all-in-one content management system built for models. They offer VOD, e-commerce merchandising, mainstream social media integrations, geo-blocking, and private messaging. But one of the noteworthy features that Model Centro offers is native live cam shows. Model Centro says that it provides models with a fully functioning tipping mechanism, with scheduling interfaces to manage live cam shows in advance. Model Centro also integrates with its sister platform, the premium NSFW social media platform Fan Centro.
Cam models can also crowdsource other webcam models to contribute to a shared site to create niche platforms. You could also explore the opportunity of ethical, creator-owned adult webcam properties.
