What is StripScore and How Can I Boost it?
StripScore is based on many factors, including how much you earn, how complete your profile and broadcast settings are, etc.
You can improve your StripScore over time. Your StripScore depends on:
- Well-described Tip Menu
- Quality of your stream (good internet connection and higher video resolution are important)
- Turned-on microphone during a broadcast
- Uploaded background photo or video
- Public photo albums and videos
- Detailed Goal and Topic for your broadcasts
- Complete profile
- Private show rating
Your revenue roughly accounts for 50-80% of your StripScore. The other factors account for 20-50%. So you can still improve your position on the site even if you don't get that many viewers yet.
Your StripScore will rise over time if you follow all the guidelines above and perform consistently.
There are no penalties for taking days off, so feel free to have your holidays whenever you want. Your StripScore will not go down. Remember that fans tend to stick with models who stream often and regularly.
Your Guide to Improving Your StripScore
Your StripScore can be your golden ticket to triumph, considering that the higher it is, the higher you rank on the site’s model list and hence the more traffic you will get in your room.
So now, what’s the secret to having a good StripScore? Your revenue per hour. This raises another obvious question, which is how you can earn as much money as possible in 60 minutes. Luckily, we’ve been in the game for a while and know some guidelines that models can follow in order to help boost their earnings.
First things first
Let's tackle the technical part before we jump into the performance scope.
We all know there’s always an element of the unexpected regarding live streaming. That’s the reason why it is important to double-check everything is working properly upon start. And by everything, we mean:
High-speed internet —a must!
A computer with a good camera and mic
Or an Android or iOS device
As simple as that. That’s all you need to start broadcasting! Stripchat supports mobile streaming, so no need to be in a room all the time or rely on your computer; you can stream from wherever you can think of at your best convenience and keep your fans with you. For example, who said that you couldn’t make money chilling at the beach?
Make the most of your first 15 days
It's true that practice makes perfect. However, in this case, what you do initially, in the beginning, is crucial. The reason is that when you sign up on Stripchat as a model, you get a 15-day promotion. During this time, you build your own rating, meaning that the less you work, the lower your rating will be on the page once your promotion days are over. Conversely, if you work hard in your first 15 days, you’ll build a good rating that will rank you high on our website. Thus, more users will visit your chat room, and more tokens, aka money, will roll in.
So, don’t underestimate your start. It is the most significant part!
Grow your followers and subscribers
Based on our analytics, models with more followers can make more money per hour. The science behind it is that these models’ profiles appear by default on the top of their followers’ index page whenever they are online, turning up as the first option.
So now you know that you must prioritize being in a user’s Favorites list. On top of that, if you get them to turn on the notifications for when you go live, you’ll have them in the palm of your hand!
The followers base grows over time, depending on how often you stream, the duration of your sessions, and interactivity in your room – or in other words, how users like your performance.
Set a fixed schedule
This is no different from any other 9-5 job. Of course, you can choose when to work and how long. Nevertheless, if you want to drive traffic and do things right, you should keep a steady broadcasting schedule and stick to it. We recommend a shift of at least 6 hours long.
Don’t worry; if you have a positive attitude towards your job, it won’t even feel like working 😉.
Furthermore, it is convenient to specify on your profile when you most often go online so that fans can be waiting for you at this particular time and thus gain your base of returning visitors. Your Offline Status has you covered on that. You can add your custom status, such as your following show announcement, and users will see this message on your broadcasting window when they visit your room.
You know what they say, better not leave any loose ends!
Include photos and videos of yourself
First impressions last, and your visual footage will be your key asset to get people’s attention in the first place.
Users love to see pictures of our models, and those with extensive photo galleries are the most popular ones and get offline tips from visitors (yes, you can make money even when you’re not online thanks to our offline tipping option, so your presentation is something). Add your best shots to your public photos so visitors can get to know you better and pique their interest in you. You can also include photos in other private albums that can only be seen by “friends” or members who spend tokens on them. And to top it off, display your playful and sexiest videos in your public videos section. Post to impress!
Bear in mind that it's not only about posting your footage once but about updating it. To keep your users interested, you must provide fresh content regularly. You know the drill.
Complete profile description
Once you’re done with the photos and videos, it’s time to create a good and detailed “About me” section and leave them wanting to know more. You can write a mix of what you like to do daily and what turns you on in bed. Users want to know what sexual practices you fantasize about but also see that you are like their next-door neighbor, an ordinary girl with hobbies and a life like anyone else’s.
Create your Tip Menu
On the broadcasting page, you'll find a Tip Menu widget where you can include custom activities you'd like to offer and prices. Advertising your services will help members better understand what you’re willing to do and how many tokens it will cost them. Setting clear goals always made things easier!
A shout-out to your top spenders in your description could be a great bonus. Just saying.
Add detailed Goal and Topic
Don't underestimate the power of these tools. Including a detailed Goal and Topic will significantly help you interact with your users. You can describe in your Topic what's taking place in your chat room and the type of performances you put on. Make show announcements or share anything you want your users to know.
On the other hand, the Goal is your perfect partner in crime in motivating users to spend money on your room. Announce in your Goal what exceptional performance will take place in your public chat room and set a tip amount to reach the goal so that everyone can contribute with their tips.
Be dynamic and suggestive
Before thinking about making a user a regular visitor, the first step is to get them to stay in your room watching your show in full. Your public chat room is like the display window in a shop. Just a sneak peek of what could happen if they book a private session with you, for example, so it requires you to be a good salesperson.
It’s your responsibility to create the action; you need to do something visually stimulating. Sometimes you might find that nobody is talking in your chat room. In this case, you could start moving around sensually, caressing your body, etc., to create an environment for people to chat and tip you.
Find true fans
It is undoubtedly not the short-term goal, but in the long run, we saw that if a model has fans who genuinely enjoy their time with her and they establish a loyal relationship, her revenue skyrockets. There is no universal recipe for achieving that, but the most critical component is how well you communicate with your users. The most successful models are patient – time will be your best friend –and aren’t afraid to experiment and have Stripchat as their only streaming platform. This way, they can focus only on one channel and have better performance and interaction with their users.
Use the microphone
Having the microphone enabled and unmuted contributes to having a better StripScore. On top of that, try to talk to users in your chat room using the mic as much as possible. The keyboard can sometimes be a turn-off. Nobody wants to be locked into the moment's narrative to be dragged back to reality when the model stops whatever she’s doing to reach the keyboard and type a message. Not cool.
Make your guests feel closer to you by using your voice and create a warmer vibe in your room.
Answer to members' messages
Being responsive is critical when building your fan base. That’s why we advise you to always try to respond to users who have spent tokens on your chat room, whether a greeting or a special request.
Be attentive and make them your friends in the long run for more chances of having a constant income.
Engage your audience
That’s the magic word: engagement.
We all agree that having 20 viewers spending tokens in your chat room is better than having 300 and only two tipping. Engaged users are more valuable. Now then, how to build audience engagement?
The first step is knowing your audience and showing you care; for this matter, you might need to take notes occasionally during your stream. Yes, camming also requires some homework. For example, if a user tells you his real name and you write it down, the next time he visits your room, you can address him by his name and make an impression. If you get a user from, let's say, Belgium, you would score some points if you go, “I actually love Belgian beer”. If you notice that most of your audience watches Game of Thrones, it would be a good idea to familiarize yourself with the show so that you can comment about it with your fans and have them in your pocket. Analyze your users carefully and use them to your advantage.
The second step is trying to be original and sharp. Let’s say there’s a user in your chat room whose nickname is 'MrBigBanana'. A “Hey, why don’t we go private and make it bigger?” might work out. You never know, but all you can do is try.
You’ll be surprised by the power of a witty pickup line. The word choice is all yours.
Standing out from the rest may be challenging, but it has its rewards. Think outside the box and create new ways to interact with your fans. Anything involving unusual broadcasting or creating a different and fun environment drives users crazy.
Broadcasting from an outdoor location and creating the illusion that someone may see you, role plays, making ASMR, giving customized love advice… The path is all yours to design, and the limit is your imagination.
Invite your friends and followers to your room
You can make cash in the process of bringing new members to Stripchat, so if you have any social networks or other sources of potential new users, don’t hesitate to use them as a place to promote your Stripchat chat room. You must share your referral link there (the URL should look like this stripchat.com/your-name/follow-me) so new users can register as referred ones. Each time one of your newly referred users spends tokens on you, an extra 20% will be added to their tip amount, thus catapulting your revenue.
Use the dashboard
Analyzing and keeping track of your performance is key to growing your revenue; we suggest you visit your dashboard to get insights into your paying users. You can see who hasn’t spent money on you for a while, and send him a private message to lure him back.
