    Default Stuff to Do When You Have A Slow/Bad Day

    Ok - I'm having a crappy couple days on cam. Slow, little traffic, few pvts, failed goldshows....ugh.

    For the most part, I am a fan of the idea that you just get your ASS ON CAM and stay there, but let's face it, that is actually really, really hard, especially when it is dead, or if you are in a bad mood. It just...IS. Or, in other circumstances, if you are sick, have some kind of visible injury or issue that will prevent you camming (rash, breakouts, bad dye job you are waiting to fix), cramps...or if you choose not to work while on your period.

    What can you do to keep earning money? How can you keep earning, when there is no traffic, or you can't get on cam? I want to hear all your ideas, even if you do some vanilla online work as well that is accessible.

    - Writing erotica (I've just started - great for those days where you just don't want to put on makeup)
    - Promoting the living bejeesus out of your cammodels.com link to try and get affiliate sign ups
    - Filming clips - maybe voyeur-style clips - and setting them up to upload automatically over the next few days so that you don't have to worry about daily uploading
    - NiteFlirt - for those who just don't want to be on CAM, but are happy answering phone calls.

    What do you do? What are other ideas of ways to make money/keep working on slow days?
    I take cash, debit or credit. I just don't take shit.

    Hmm, good thread. My ideas are:

    MyGirlFund.
    Indy camshows.
    Panty Sales.
    Twitter ... tweet that you're selling custom pictures and clips or camshows.

    The two main non-adult income streams I am using right now are Mechanical Turk and IMN (link in my sig). MTurk can be very hit or miss unless you know how to find good hits. If you can transcribe and/or write articles you can actually do pretty well there. I also turk sometimes in free chat when it's slow and no one is talking, I'll do simple point and click tasks like categorizing pictures or taking surveys- things that don't really require a lot of attention. As far as IMN it's super easy to post ads, correspond through emails, etc. I've also done some copying and posting of ads while in free chat. Has anyone found places to sell erotica for a decent amount? The only place I know of that I've done it is MGF but it I've only ever found one guy to actually buy my stories.

    For selling erotica, look at smashwords. It is just a general publisher that sends to amazon, kindle, etc, but it seems worthwhile. I am just starting out there.

    Thank you for this thread, i think its a great idea!

    Ive written Erotica for yrs just for the love of it but Ive always dreamed of having some of my better works published - but I know how hard it is and what to expect realistically - so self publishing definitely appeals to me!Ive seen other sites similar to Smashwords but Ive pretty much had no clue which ones are the best and most trustworthy.
    Fuck getting rejected bc of a publisher's opinion -I dislike the idea of them rejecting something on a whim that someone else has worked SO hard for,just bc they got into a fight with their wife that morning over the toilet seat being up.I dunno how many times Ive been in a shitty mood and found a tv show,book or movie annoying and/or stupid etc,yet absolutely loved it when I gave it a second chance once I was in a better mood..

    good luck with your writing ladies,wishing you bottomless pits of creativity and inspiration!

    Yes, I write for textbroker, iwriter, and some writing hits on mturk. They are all legit. You can also try write for web 2.0 sites such as Associated Content (now Yahoo Voices), squidoo, hubpages, etc. Yahoo voices has gotten really stingy with their upfront pay which is why I stopped submitting there, but they pay for page views as well.

    There is also istockvideo and similar sites. I hear that high quality short videos (15 seconds) of street signs, traffic signs and people crossing the street sell. But you need lots of constant uploads to make money.

    Great ideas! I already do a few others have mentioned but here's some more

    -sell stuff you don't need on ebay
    -sell fetish-y stuff on ebanned
    -swagbucks (get rewards you can redeem for giftcards or paypal but answering surveys, using their search engine, signing up for trials, shopping)
    -inbox dollars (similar to swagbucks, haven't used it but it's legit)
    -mylot (social network that pays you to post)
    -start a side vanilla business with skills you already have
    -look on ebates and see if there is anything with a rebate you were going to buy anyway

    I think I have more but I forget!

    Best idea ive had is phone sex! Cheap guys love it, I dont mind it cause i dont have to get dolled up and in the end your still making good profit. I advertise on my Ads for independent Skype shows that I do it for a cheaper option. Its also good for me cause I have this number i put in my phone before i call them, not only does it prevent idiots from calling me back because they know my number, but the phone company only charges that number a penny a minute. So its cheap and great money. Plus its minimal effort!
    Never regret.

    I do this "game" when I get bored or guys are not tipping in for gold shows- I play 60min game. Set up a 60min gold show with like $15-$20 goal. When goal is reached I cancel it and restart it a few times... So cute to listen to guys bitch of how I will not do a 60min show for $15 bucks... hahahaha Then when the goal gets reached in the first min and there is like 40-50 people in the room I will restart countdown for a normal gold show. By that time everyone is in the "tipping mode" and just keep tipping... Works every time and keeps me entertained...

    That reminds me, selling crafts on Etsy too!

    They are also good for selling vintage stuff. I just had a $600 sale there!

    Things about Inbox Dollars, Surveys, Paid-To-Click sites, you really aren't going to make a lot of money. Like pennies a day. When I first got into trying to make money on the internet that's what I did. Maybe $2 off a site per month or something. It was ridiculous now that I look back on it. Unless you have really gullible people in your life who will sign up under you (pyramid scheme) it isn't worth it IMHO. My time is worth more than a penny. Not saying don't do it. Some are legit. But the $ (compared to adult work pay) is NOT equaling out for a slow/bad day.

    Just my 2cents on that.

    I agree with things like swagbucks, mechanical turk, etc. is really not much at all. It seems like those kinds of things make sense if you are sitting in free chat, or sometimes it's almost like a game when you're bored, so why not get paid? It's not realistic to think that you could make a lot of money, but it's good if put in it's proper place. I know there is stuff I make a lot more money doing but a lot of times I just get BORED doing the same stuff all the time!

    I agree with mturk...
    If I try I can hit about $8+/hour doing transcription...I couldn't do it full time but it's not bad for extra money...
    i think I made like $400 on mturk in 2012 doing it here and there....
