Twin Dommes Seek Advice
May 14, 2010 3:49 AM   Subscribe

Two of my best friends are twin sisters, gorgeous, and 24/7 lifestyle Dommes. They've recently decided to go professional, probably via a website involving webcams and such. I'm helping them investigate the possibilities. Any suggestions? Who should they use as a host? What should they expect for initial expenses, etc.? Thanks in advance.

If they are identical twins, I'd suggest setting up single persona that they both play. This way you have two people sharing a job that usually can't be shared, making production easier, workloads less, and vacations easier to arrange. They can take turns going to trade shows, etc.

If they get popular, you can start seeding rumors of an "evil twin" or "cloning experiment", then set up a "super-premium" area of the site (above and beyond the usual pay area) for people to access the mysterious twin content.

If they are serious and have a bit of money to invest, I have several domains that might work for them. I sold my camworld.com domain to a webcam site and am an identical twin, so have a few domains that map well to what they're trying to do.

I like mikepops's suggestion, but such an approach would take a long time to build up for the sake of marketing. One of the issues is the whole camgirl space is extremely crowded, so the only way you're going to stand out is if you have a unique angle.

The draw of their being known as twins will be much greater than whatever persona they come up with. Showing up at trade shows together, for example, will be much better for business than just splitting the duties 50/50.

I'll admit to looking at this from the lazy person's perspective vs. knowledge of porn industry perspective.

Why don't they just invest in renting a secure dungeon space and see a regular stream of clients instead? I'd rather make $500 an hour than try to round up and entertain subscribers for (relative) peanuts.

aquafortis, even if they do that, they need to market themselves and that will probably involve a photo-heavy website and possibly webcams/videos as well.

They'll need a domain, a host, a paypall account and bandwidth. Also pro photographs and web design. Many of these things can be gotten for cheap from friends (or traded for sessions, or done by your subbie web slave LOL) but all out were talking a couple hundred quid startup costs. Good SEO helps too. Any host that allows adult services is fine, local host is always better. Blogging and posting on fetlife and whatever with your mistress account helps too. Please PM me if you want more specifics - my housemate in my previous residence is a pro and lifestyle domme and does webcam and phone as well as in person sessions and can recommend specific providers.

Oh yeah also there are websites for your city or region with mistress indices and reviews, be sure to get listed there.
