Are you interested in marketing on Tumblr, but you're concerned that they will just close your account? Let us help you be successful with Tumblr marketing by going over some Do's and Don'ts!

Tumblr Do's
Do create a stand-alone site
Tumblr hates affiliate links (unless you are paying them!). If you link to iFriends via a tracking link, they are more likely to shut down your Tumblr account. Instead, create your own site and link to that from your Tumblr posts. Your site can have all the affiliate tracking you want.

Do link to content that is Relevant
Link to content that is related to the post you're making. If you are promoting this month's Model of the Month, link to through to a page on your site that features more about her. Use the banners that have been created, content from her fanclub, or pull her RSS Feed to populate a bio page right on your site.

Use Tumblr's Source Option on Every Post
Use Tumblr's source link option to connect to your stand-alone site every time you make a post, and put a link every image you post as well. While this will restrict you to single-picture posts, some data suggests these posts are more likely to be clicked on and retumblr'ed. This will also embed your site in the post regardless of how often it's shared, eliminating traffic leaks.

Stay Away from Videos - Use Gif's instead
Tumblr dislikes if you attempt to upload videos. Gifs will work across all devices, which is not something all embeddable HTML to play your movies can promise. Giphy will let you convert videos to animations, or you can use any other software or service you like to convert your movies.

Tell a Story in your post
Post about a model, or a session, from a viewer (or model's!) point of view. Tumblr users like stories, and will interact with and share stories that are interesting, amusing, or otherwise caught their eye.

For example, when you watch the next free Customer Appreciation show, why not write a short Tumblr blog about it, then lead to a deeper review on your site. A short teaser on your Tumblr that leads to a longer story on your site will help you convert.

Use Relevant Hashtags
We cannot stress hashtags enough. Tumblr exposure is driven by the content in your post and the hashtags you use. Don't spam a million tags just to have them. You want to feed relevant traffic through to your marketing. If people keep finding your content by hashtags that are not relevant, they'll stop clicking through and ignore your posts entirely.

Use Google Analytics Tracking
Using Google's Campaign URL builder in your posts on any social media platform back to your site will help you get more information about how users are finding your site. This will also help you identify the posts that are generating the most traffic, so you can make more of those types of posts.

Remember to connect your Socials
Be sure to connect your Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter accounts together. That way, a post to one will be seen across your various social media accounts. Experiment with this - sometimes this works great as it's a good time-saver, but it can make your linked accounts look more like spam. Find a connection that works best for you.

Tumblr Don't's
Don't use RSS Feeds
Using services like Dlvr.it or IFTTT to populate your Tumblr is the best way to get your account closed. Why? Because Tumblr is interested in user-generated content. Using RSS Feeders will get your account closed. You can use RSS feeds to populate the pages on your site, but you'll need to either manually post (be sure to use their scheduler!) or user a service like HootSuite to cue up posts to your Tumblr.

Don't Post Affiliate Links on Tumblr
This is the second fastest way to get your Tumblr account closed. Instead of posting an affiliate link, set up your own feeder site and send the traffic from Tumblr to your site. You can populate your site with whatever affiliate links you want.

Don't Spam
Building an account that spams posts or hashtags will also cause Tumblr to close your account. It will also cause other Tumblr users to just ignore you, which is the opposite of what you're after!

Don't ignore other Tumblrs
Tumblr is a community. You'll get more traffic if you actually engage in posts and re-tumblr'ing other people's posts. Many accounts won't re-tumblr your content unless you've interacted with them first.



If you use sex-related keywords in your Twitter hashtags, or post explicit pictures, you may have seen a drop in views and clicks on your Tweets. This is because, as part of their Safe Space changes, Twitter has started blocking certain words in their search engine.

This follows their February update when they rolled out SafeSearch filters on content, flagging each image as "safe" or not in an attempt to block violent or adult images from appearing in search results.

The Safe Search feature is enabled by default on all Twitter accounts. Users can disable it, but they would first have to know it's there. Since Twitter rolled this out pretty quietly, most casual Twitter users may not even know it has happened and are probably wondering where all their porn has gone.

Some hashtags we've seen impacted by these changes include: Porn, NSFW, Sex, BDSM, Kink

How to use Hashtags with Safe Search
You can still use these in your hashtags, but now Tweets containing these will no longer show up under "Latest Tweets". They will still show up under "Top Tweets", which is where Twitter shows Tweets with high interactions.

We'd recommend incorporating other keywords as well that may be less explicit, but still allow your audience to find you. Our Guide to Hashtags lists a variety of tags you can use to promote iFriends live cam models.

How to use Content with Safe Search
The safest bet is to stick to teaser content. Many models offer less explicit content that you can access through our Model Spotlight Tool.

When you use more explicit content, blur it. You can still link to the un-altered content, and you may find more users clicking through to see what's really going on under that blur. This will also allow you to post the image on Instagram, who is auto-blurring "sensitive" photos.

How to Continue to Reach your Followers
People who already follow your Twitter account are folks who want to hear from you. If you haven't been proactive about following them back and interacting with them, now is the time to do so. Interacting with someone is the best way to make sure they don't forget about you. The more you interact with your followers, the more you learn the type of content they like as well. Consider it market research to find out where to send those followers to earn the most from their traffic.

One great way to generate some interaction is to run a poll, and retweet the poll post often. People love giving their opinions, and it's more great market research on what your followers want (and don't want) to see from you.

If you haven't already, be sure to phone verify and email verify your Twitter account. In an attempt to curtail harassment and abuse, Twitter has added a setting that lets users see only Phone and Email verified accounts. It's currently off by default but don't let that discourage you from verifying your account. There's no guarantee that OFF will remain the default.




Marketing without a Website

One question new affiliates ask us is, "Do I need my own website to promote iFriends and earn with ClickCash?" The answer? No, you don't.

There are many ways that you can get your marketing links out there, generating clicks and signups and earning with ClickCash. Let's dive into some of your options!

Social Media
Social Media sites can be a great source of free or inexpensive traffic. Services like Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr allow you to use keywords and hashtags to reach a wider audience. All you need is a valid email address and some time, and pretty soon you'll see traffic flowing through your links. The drawback of social media marketing is that you may need a higher volume of traffic to generate signups. You will also need to keep in mind the various policies on the different sites. Facebook is particularly strict on content. They specifically frown upon explicit content or using names that are not your real name, and will close your account if they see you doing these.

Some ways that you can generate traffic on social media accounts include:
Ad Networks
Advertising networks are a quick way to promote your ClicKCash banners and links to millions of online visitors on some of the largest adult websites in the world. These websites include some of the best known Dating, Tube, VOD (Video on Demand), and PPV (pay-per-view) portals out there.

If you've never used Ad Networks, or are looking for more information, we've got you covered. Check out our Introduction to Adult Ad Networks for more information and a list of Ad Networks to try.

Email Campaigns
Email marketing can be a great way to get your promotions to people interested in adult offers. ClickCash does allow you to include email marketing in your campaigns. There are some rules, though. Luckily, we've got them all in one convenient place.

Many of our image banners work well in email campaigns to generate clicks on your links. And when you use the best landing pages, you'll quickly turn that email list into paid commissions.

Search Engine Paid Marketing
Search engines like Bing still allow you to bid on adult keywords. Inside their control panel you can manage and analyze your campaigns. Create and optimize your text ads using some of our tips. Whether you focus on short keywords or longtail keywords, make sure to use the best Call-to-Action text and send users to our optimized landing pages.

Online Forums
Forum marketing can be a great way to generate traffic through your links. After you find the forums where you want to place your links, make sure to read over that board's policies regarding posting and marketing. Some forums do not allow affiliate marketing posts, or require that you have some volume of participation before you can post links. Before you start, we recommend checking out these 12 Forum Marketing Tips!

...Why not make a site?
Seriously. Making a site is very simple. For very little money you can purchase a great domain and get it hosted for the year. After you have your own domain, install WordPress (typically included with any hosting plan for free). We have a gallery of plugins that will take you from ho-hum to WOWZA, allowing you to build your own iFriends cobrand. You can then use all the tips above to drive traffic to your website, connect users with live models, and cash in on their signups.

In Conclusion
As you can see, there's many ways to market your ClickCash tracking link without having to have a website of your own. We're happy to chat with you about any of these suggestions! Just visit us in Live Chat Support or drop us a line. We're available 24/7 to help you out!


Get more out of your Social Media Marketing

When you are using Twitter to generate new leads, you know the more eyes you can get on your Tweets the better. Everyone wants to know how to get users from Twitter to click on their links and signup for an iFriends account. It can take a lot of work and effort to generate even one signup.

Moz Blog invoted Tara Reed to discuss ways to increase your leads originating from your Tweets. With her three-step process, you can squeeze a lot more traffic out of your Twitter feeds and make yourself a glass of ClickCash commissions!




Set up Dlvr.it t post to your Social Networks

Dlvr.it is an RSS feed gobbler: it takes the RSS feed from any website (like ClickCash, or iFriends!) and basically delivers it automatically to whatever social media platform you select. It currently supports auto-posting to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pintest, and many others. You can set the schedule you want, or let Dlvr.it optimize your posts based on research and best practices.

Dlvr.it offers both free and premium packages. The free option allows you to link to up to three social networks from up to five feeds and sites. Their premium program allows you to link to up to ten social networks with as many as 50 feeds. And if you need more, they also have business plans available.

For those of you who track everything through the great and powerful Google, you can even incorporate your UTM tracking parameters on each link! Let's get started...

Getting Started
  1. Sign Up for your account right from their homepage. You can create a stand-alone account, or signup using your Facebook or Twitter account.
  2. Link your Socials by clicking on the SOCIALS tab and then selecting the "Add Social" button. With their free plan, you can link up to three social media networks

Configure your Socials
We recommend that you configure each of your social profiles before adding any links. To do this:
  1. Click on the Social you wish to edit, then click the EDIT button
  2. Post Options should have the post title, body, and URL selected. Make sure the social is Active, too!
  3. Links allows you to shorten your links or not. We recommend you select "Don't Shorten Links". This is where you'd add your Google Analytics tracking, too.
  4. Advanced lets you post as a retweet as necessary and add photos. Check both of these.
Click SAVE to save your configurations. We do recommend going into the Short Links area and setting "No Shortener" as the default. Now it's time to set up our RSS feeds!

Feed the Queue
  1. Add New Feed by clicking the button at the bottom of this page
  2. Enter your Feed URL which you'll get from the ClickCash RSS feeds page. Make sure to be logged in so that every link is prepopulated with your tracking code
  3. Name your Feed with the niche you're promoting. This helps if you've got multiple feeds connected to your account. Pick your New Items and First Post settings
  4. Connect Your Socials to tell Dlvr.it where to send your posts.
Once your feed is entered, we suggest going into the feed settings so that Dlvr.it doesn't spam your feeds. Here's what we recommend:
  • Updates should be every 30 minutes with a maximum 1 post per update.
  • Item Text should contain how you want to start each post (eg: Live Cam Show) and end each post. This is a great place to add the hashtags relevant to your feed.
  • Filters should have Title and Content selected.
  • Advanced should have Enable Photo Posting turned on. We suggest disabling "Pass Feedburner Links to your link shortening service.
And that's it! Dlvr.it will start posting to your selected social medias on the schedule you selected.
