Blog Post Written By: Melrose Michaels
In my first SextPanther blog, I outlined strategies from our SextPanther course series. If you're joining us as a newcomer to the SWCEO community, please check it out along with our comprehensive YouTube courses that provide a wealth of insights into the SextPanther platform and many other topics.
In this blog, we're doing a deep dive into the tips, tricks, and tactics to help you get the most out of the platform. As we embark on this journey, it's important to note that many of the strategies and techniques mentioned in this blog are thoughtfully covered in our video content, complete with visuals that bring clarity to each step. So, whether you're seeking to enhance your understanding or refine your approach, get ready to uncover the secrets that can elevate your SextPanther experience to new heights.
Fostering Leads on SextPanther
Let's dive into the first topic: how to nurture your leads on SextPanther. A lead on SextPanther refers to a customer who has added you to their contacts. When a new client or contact connects with you on SextPanther, one of the most effective actions you can take is responding to them within the first 5 minutes. This practice has a big impact on boosting your conversion rates, enhancing the likelihood that the client will make purchases, and extending their engagement with your content. In the realm of sales, speed plays a crucial role, and it's no different here. This swiftness is especially important due to SextPanther's platform mimicking text messages. In its early stages, the SextPanther platform even incorporated SMS messaging. Given this context, users expect rapid, real-time communication between creators and themselves. For this reason, I prioritize my responses on SextPanther over my OnlyFans DMs and other platforms, and I recommend adopting a similar approach across various platforms.
Beyond speed, the next step in fostering leads involves addressing the primary concern of users or fans: the uncertainty about whether they're genuinely interacting with the creator. The solution lies in responding to their initial contact with a voice message, one that they can access for free. This message might go something like this: "Thank you so much, [mention their username], for the contact add. I'm excited to have some fun with you." Sending this free audio message immediately after they add you as a contact accomplishes two important things: it validates your identity, assuring that you are who you claim to be, and it also makes them feel more at ease about spending money on the interaction. Users typically worry about whether they're engaging with the right person, so offering this reassurance through a complimentary audio message significantly boosts their willingness to spend.
In essence, fostering leads on SextPanther involves a combination of rapid response time and addressing user concerns promptly and personally. These strategies optimize the platform's unique dynamics and enhance your chances of turning leads into active and engaged customers.
SextPanther offers a feature that lets you send messages to multiple people at once. But here's the catch: you can only do this every 8 hours. So, it's important to be smart about how you use it. When you're sending out a mass message, try to make it feel like you're having a one-on-one conversation. To do this, ask questions or say things that need a response. For instance, you might ask, "Would you let me make you late for work this morning?" You'll also notice that this is singular because I say “would you”, not “hey loves” which is plural, or “good morning babes” which is plural. The goal is to make each mass message seem like it's specifically for one fan. Following these three guidelines—asking open-ended questions, addressing one person, and needing a response—will likely encourage more people to reply to your mass messages.
Now, let's talk about timing. Remember, you can only send these mass messages every 8 hours. To help you keep track, consider setting an alarm or timer on your phone. My approach is to send messages at 8:00 a.m., 4:00 p.m., and midnight (Central Standard Time). This way, I'm maximizing the use of those 8-hour windows. However, if staying up late isn't your thing, you could stick to sending two mass messages a day. The main idea is to figure out what suits you and your fans on SextPanther the best.
Next, I want to speak about creative ways to monetize your users once they've started replying back and forth to you. One trick that I love to use is asking fans if they're comfortable sending me a photo of themselves. You can do this under the guise that you are interested in seeing what they look like or putting a face to the username. Once they send that initial picture, you're going to reply something like “No way you're too cute, I'm being catfished.” At which point you tell them to take another photo and send it to you, but while doing a silly request. Maybe it's something like asking them to hold up their phone charger or a fork next to their face. Either way, the point of this exercise is to stand out to the user as being fun-loving and light-hearted while also complementing the way they look. This gets them to send two photos instead of one, which is double the revenue.
Another great tactic I use often to monetize my users is to send voice notes for unlock instead of written replies. I do this because the replies by voice note cost my fans more to unlock than the free text message replies they received from me. The tactic I use is that I tell my fan or user that I'm driving so I'm going to send a voice note. From that point on I will reply back and forth to all their messages and locked audios to drive up revenue. This tactic works well because the user cannot refute you sending audios instead of written messages due to the fact that it would put your safety at risk since you are “driving”. Additionally, they feel like the conversation with them is so important that you don't want to stop chatting back and forth even though you are driving somewhere and going about your day. Anytime you have the chance to make your fans or users feel prioritized, special, and important, it is going to build rapport with that fan. This keeps them spending more and keeps them around for longer.
The final crucial part of making money from users is to structure your responses to encourage them to reply. For instance, if a fan asks about your day, instead of saying "My day was awesome, thanks," (which doesn't lead to more conversation), you could reply like this: "My day's starting well, but I've got three things in mind that could make it even better." Notice the change? Now that fan will be intrigued about those three things I mentioned, and we can keep the chat going. This keeps them messaging me, which in turn keeps the money coming in.
Notes & Building Customer Profiles
The last piece I want to talk about before I start wrapping things up and taking your questions is about keeping really good notes on your users. It's super important to jot down stuff like their name, what they do for work, where they're located (if they're cool with sharing that), what they're into sexually, their hobbies, and anything personal that comes up while chatting with them. Any little detail you can get from a user during your conversation should be saved in their notes. The reason for this is that you can use these details to bring back the chat to life if it slows down or if the user stops responding. Sending a personalized message that includes their name or something they're into sexually is way more likely to get a response than one of those general mass messages we talked about earlier. But this part won't work if you're not taking good notes on each fan while you're actively using the platform. You should also know if your fans prefer texting over voice calls, or if they like video calls more. All of this should be in their notes so you can use it when you need to spice things up a bit.
My journey with SextPanther has been nothing short of remarkable. Having been a part of this platform since its early days in 2013, I've witnessed its evolution into a true leader in the adult industry. What sets SextPanther apart is not just the innovative features and functionalities they consistently introduce, but their genuine commitment to listening to creators and incorporating their feedback into meaningful enhancements. Unlike many other companies, the team behind SextPanther is not only dedicated but also well-intentioned, a rarity in this field. This is precisely why I've remained loyal and enthusiastic about collaborating with them. Through this blog, I aimed to shed light on some untapped possibilities and areas for improvement in maximizing the potential of the SextPanther platform. May it empower you as an adult creator just as it has for me.
