Bucharest Summit is a Must Attend Live Cams Event (Opinion)

For those of you who are short on time like most of us, I will get right to the point. The reason why you should attend the Bucharest Summit May 30th – June 2nd in Bucharest Romania ( @BucharestSummit ) is because just about everyone else is attending this adult webcams industry event! With so many attending the event this means lots of business opportunities. Most importantly, the stars of the show are attending; literally tons of cam models and studios will be there. Take a look at the registrations so far. For those of you who have a little more time I have shared below my take on cam industry events and why I am attending Bucharest Summit with high expectations.

Adult Webcam News is attending Bucharest Summit May 30th – June 2nd 2017 Bucharest Romania

As the Adult Webcams Industry continues to grow and become mainstream more events have looked to establish themselves as the go-to industry trade show; and attract the actual talent that makes the industry what it is today. The tricky aspect of organizing a summit, trade show, or any other adult webcam events is serving the actual adult webcams industry by offering value to the stars of adult webcams shows that counterbalances the value they get from leaving home to attend a show. Let’s be honest, as cam site reps, affiliate marketers, and b2b professionals in the adult webcams business; we attend these events expecting a return on investment. This R.O.I. is the only reason we attend or sponsor these events. We measure this return on investment in new trade lines, media mentions and seo links, building a sense of community for cam models and/or P.R., acquiring new affiliates, and the like. Thus we should expect that cam models will doing the same. Right? Of course we should, it’s just the how they reach that equation that is different.

Cam models are not just looking at the costs of their travel and accommodations, but also the value in their marketing efforts tied to the event initiatives they undertake; those that takes time away from their direct selling time on cam. It all has to pencil. In other words, how many cam shows are they losing when they take time out to attend events? Do they have to promote the events on their social media channels and if so what are the opportunity costs of those marketing efforts? Together these are costs that make up the total investment to them, not just the travel and accommodations to the actual show. Recognizing this helps explain why so many adult webcam events in the United States have fallen short of expectations and will continue to live up to expectations unless the shows focus heavily on creating value to the actual performers. Likewise, choosing their show dates carefully and making sure to involve all the stakeholders is also critical.  IMO, Bucharest Summit is hands down the ‘go to event’ of the year in cams as I expect it will involve more of those who work in the adult webcams industry than any other show.

The Bucharest Summit is strategically located in the heart of Romania where the largest number of cam studios and independent cam models are situated. The location is upscale and easy to get to. So, it’s going to be well attended. Providing the cams companies all attend, this show is poised to become year-over-year the must attend event in the adult webcams industry. Much of this boils down to location. So far LiveJasmin is the main sponsor and I expect that over coming weeks more of the top 10 cam sites will realize this is the place to be May 30th-June 2nd. The opportunity this show presents is evident with the high level of registrations so far among studios and cam models. Moreover, the organization behind Bucharest Summit consists of the very talent that fuels the industry. By all appearances, this is going to be a show with SOUL and that I would argue that is what fuels success in all endeavors. You have to be really part of something and affected by its success to have a burning desire to contribute and make it better for everyone.

Cam Girls Blog Launches (CamGirls.Blog)

For Immediate Release

Las Vegas, Nevada – Cam Girls Blog, a creation of CammerZ the Adult Webcams B2B Community has Launched CamGirls.Blog which is an open blog featuring interviews with cam models. Cam Girls Blog is a place for internet models to share their stories, projects, sites, shows, and more. You need zero experience as a cam model and all cam models are approved and yes 1 free commercial link is allowed per interview. Also you may add all the social media links you like. Cam Girls Blog offers free exposure for cam models and all that is required is that you be a member of CammerZ.com, the cam girls forum and community.

CammerZ admin and Cam Girls Blog creator Ron Lee said, “In a day and age where branding of your content as a cam girl is so valuable the next thing internet models need to be concerned with high-ranking sites coming along and taking their brand position in search results; which happens because they’ve not created enough original content for people to find their real live webcams show pages”. “The goal of Cam Girls Blog is to offer another resource and tool for adult webcams entertainers to market themselves and back link their REAL and AUTHENTIC site show pages”. “These days when there is so much stolen content online Cam Girls Blog is a tool focused on directing fans back to the REAL performers webcams shows for real live cam shows”. Lee said. Cam Girls Blog does use their own affiliate link to offset site management and hosting costs as well as the time it takes to administer the site. However, for more internet models who have no original or very little original content online the trade-off is well worth it. Likewise the Cam Girls Blog does push fans both old and new back to their live webcams performances which in turn creates more traffic for their live webcams shows.
