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!

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.

Creating Effective Call to Action Links

When you're limited to 140 characters, there's no time to be coy. Giving people clear directions on what you want them to do, and what they'll get once they do it, will increase both clicks and conversions. We've got four tips that will help you increase interactions on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or whatever social media platform you're targeting with your marketing.

Ask for the Click
Your mom always said if you want something, ask for it. The same is true with getting a click! Telling people to click, and why, will increase the number of clicks your links receive. When you're sharing a link, you'll want to limit the @handle and hashtag mentions. This will keep people who see your tweet focused on your link. Take a cue from our mainstream friends and be direct and sexy:

Ask for the Retweet
Get your followers working for you. Asking for a retweet can increase retweets (read: free advertising!) by as much as 300%. Offer a reason for people to retweet you. This could be getting you to post a great picture, to show they love your content, or just because they love you.

Ask for a Follow
Extend your influence by encouraging new users to follow your social media account. If your tweet is likely to be seen by a larger audience, ask them to follow you to stay connected, or to see more of the great content you're posting.

Ask for a Reply
Social media is not meant to be you standing on a hill yelling at people. Starting a conversation is one way to build loyalty between you and your followers. And loyal followers are more likely to click on your links and signup for your offers. Give people motivation to respond to your tweets and you'll start building up impressions, followers, click-throughs, and signups!
