The Secrets of content control
Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to be a self made 6 figure business owner? – Or even hitting a smaller goal of $100,000?-Do you own your content?
Making money while sleeping that’s always the life goal! Well it is possible and when I wake up in the morning and have a notification that I made $200 while dreaming about being on a beach-that’s the best feeling ever. Now keep in mind what if this turned into $500-$1,000 a week while you are doing nothing. Run these numbers through your head, making $500-$1500 on a photo or video shoot one time, or making $50 a week off the same product each week for a year that $2600 in one year! Shoot that’s $12,500 in 5 years on one video or photo set (Multiply that by all your content). When you own your content you will for ever profit on it. Long after you put the time in to create it.
- Be your own boss-Content Control
- On going income
- Making money while doing nothing
- Building your brand
- Yes you have to put in more work (not for the lazy)
Now yes you will have to put in the time into owning your own content, but time is money! When owning your own content, you will need to learn how to edit your own photos/videos or yes put in a little money to have someone else take care of that for you. You will also need to have platforms to upload to.
- Your own Website
This in turn comes with promoting yourself to your followers and uploading enough to keep regular fans and gain new ones. Also for you ladies out there that want that fast cash to pay your bills for the right now (this aint it). The photographer or company you are shooting with will give you your content, but most likely will not pay a booking fee as well. This is a (Content trade, not a paid shoot). So for my ladies and fellas out there that want to be self-made and build a name for themselves it can be done. You don’t have to be mainstream or some huge model or star. You set your worth and put in the work to sell yourself. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not saying you can’t do paid shoots also. But play it smart and have a good balance. Invest in yourself. This means you might have to work with the top photographer charging $350-$500 to shoot, but that Is promoting your brand for you. You may be putting in long hours editing and uploading content, but it will pay off in the long run.
Don’t live and die by what I am saying, but I have taken good direction from top independent people in the adult industry and in the past 10 month it has paid off tremendously in multiple ways (Urban x award nomination for best female website and over 10 grand in subscriptions or clipsales (this is not counting paid shoots). Money isn’t everything and if you are in the adult industry strictly because of that it is going to be more disappointment sooner than the cash flow.
So, What do you think? What is the best option for you and your brand? Are you a money now or a long-term investment in yourself go getter? I don’t know everything, and I am always still learning so please comment with your experience and your thoughts.
