Cam Studios

From Bucharest to Tenerife a new approach to the webcam industry

Architecture not only houses bodies but also choreographs them, connects them, and conditions them. The body does not just inhabit architecture, but architecture inhabits the body.
That being said, decorating cam studios is not very different from decorating in general. Interior design enables a space to serve a particular function, whether it is camming or something else. It produces and increases the value of a space, as well as the capital of its occupants, be it social or sexual.
The usual studio setup takes on a domestic appearance, producing a sense of authenticity, by making it seem like the model is working from home. By disguising the professionalism of the studio and the technical aspects of camming, the interior decoration of these spaces gives the work on display visual legitimacy, while also contributing to the sexual capital of the worker within a field in which the domestic and the personal are associated with the erotic.
But what happens when you level up the architecture and interior design of the cam studio setup? For DivaMansion, moving their location to Tenerife was both a challenge and a dream. Their motto ”Dare to dream” pathed their way to this beautiful Spanish hacienda with astonishing views, which lets them think outside the box and helps them build a new, more complex and aspirational cam studio concept.

Andrei, what determined you to open a studio in Tenerife? And why Tenerife?
Now, when I think about it, I think it was a mixture of feelings: the desire to go on a new adventure and a holiday I took in 2017, when I first visited this amazing island. Tenerife is undoubtedly a special place to be. The people here are very open-minded and you can enjoy the so-called “endless spring” weather which gives you the possibility to be online outdoors even in winter times.

The new studio setup attracts more members than the classic one?
This type of studio together with our team of professionals makes a great combo, which has brought us amazing results. The traffic arrives naturally and artificially using bought traffic from different platforms in the industry.

With this new remarkable location, are you trying to set a new aspirational standard in the industry? Did Instagram influence your decision to move to this distinguished location?
Yes, I am trying to keep a high standard for DivaMansion, while offering a quality experience for our models. As well, I have a devoted team in place to make sure our models: earn well, live well, eat well. I would say it is a costly approach, and it lowers for sure the studio profit margins, but we are thinking on long term. Instagram is one of the many social media platforms we use to gather traffic and attention to our model branding. Of course living in a paradise is a plus and our content creating costs are very low and very accessible here.

The new location facilitates in some way the recruitment process of the models?
Actually, it makes it harder for a few reasons. Firstly, here we do not have an infrastructure and awareness of the live cam jobs, as we are the first studio here we had to take every local model from 0 and train her. Secondly, minimum wages in the Canary Islands are 3.5x times higher than in Romania, so the expectations from local people are higher in terms of income. And with the experienced models we are bringing from Romania is complicated as well, as we provide accommodation, plane tickets and legal assistance to get their residency permits, work permits and working contracts. So either way, recruitment is harder than it would be in a well-developed area in terms of cam studios. I am not saying we have an issue with either of the options we got, just that it is a bit more challenging.

How much does the ambiance and setup of a studio really matter? The fact that you have chosen to go out of the classic pattern, opting for a unique location, which offers you the possibility to film even outside the pool, with a dreamy background, does it offer an aura of authenticity that members are looking for?
Thank you for this question! Of course it does! What we are doing is so uncommon and rare that it has had tremendous success regardless of the models that do outdoor pool shows. Together, they are a guaranteed hit! We do not use only outdoor shows, I believe a mix of outdoor shows and indoor shows works the best for us. Every model will participate in such a show at least once a week. Our project tries to offer more to the models and members as well, and this is why we are always seeking for new technologies and new ways to connect better with the audience, while giving the best support we can for our highly prized models.

Thank you, Andrei and DivaMansion for these awesome pics! Now we can all dream of the ”Island of Eternal Spring”! Read more articles here

AJ Studios – Don’t dream it, Live it!

Located in Cali, with offices in Medellin, Armenia, Pereira, Cartagena and Bogota, AJ Studios is one of the best positioned company in Latin America in the video chat sector, thanks to the legality of their actions, the commitment towards their team of professionals and strategic allies, in order to provide a high quality service achieved by cutting-edge technologies, and the dedicated support for their models. Last but not least, AJ studios team is also the main organizer of Lalexpo, the most important international webcam event in Latin America.

How was your studio born?
Before AJ studios we were in the travel and consulting business, we had an upscale bed and breakfast in Colombia focused on international clientele. Besides accommodation we offered a wide range of services such as private interpreters, bilingual Car service, private investigators, consulting on purchase of real estate in Colombia or investment opportunities among others. We got a client from the US who came to Colombia with the project to set up a cam studio and hired us to help him get started and signed a one year management support contract. So that’s how we came in contact with the cam business.
We started in the industry when the word “monitor” was only used to refer to the computer screen, there was no such thing as a broadcast manager, payments were received through
Epassporte and the popular sites back then were Naked, Cams, PeekShows and PrivateFeeds.
Since then, we have come a long way of experiences that today has positioned us as one of the best studios in the world.

Since you started your studio, what was your most challenging period?
Definitely, it was in our beginnings. During the process of getting into the industry, we had a loss of 240 million pesos during the first year (over $62,400 today), which we took as a somewhat expensive crash course on the do’s and don’ts of running a webcam studio.
Starting AJ Studios was not easy, we have had obstacles just like so many other businesses, but if you never quit and are passionate about what you do, it pays off in the long run. This business has become extremely profitable, and has opened so many doors for me to travel and to meet exceptional people from all around the world. The industry is full of possibilities and opportunity.
Currently In Colombia, the industry faces several challenges, starting with the absence of legislation that regulates the activities of this industry. This leaves in limbo those who are part of it. The lack of a regulation not only affects the Colombian government, it also puts at a disadvantage the men and women who work daily and who do not have the protection and benefits enjoyed by a common employee as medical benefits, justifications for applying for a loan in a financial institution or employment recommendation letters.
In view of a mostly moralistic society, which in many cases mistakenly associates the webcam business with illegal activities, the Colombian Association of E-Commerce for Adults (Asocea) was created by us, with the mission of generating better opportunities for companies in the industry.

What kind of marketing strategy have you adopted: social media platforms, adwords, referrals?
Since our brand has a very high reputation, referrals are one of the most common recruitment and marketing channels for us.
Also our strategies are focused on the management of social media platforms, which is one of the most active media channels in the industry. This has allowed us to achieve a very important position and create a community for our models and the girls who want to belong to our studio.
Through our social networks we provide valuable information to our models about training, tips for their broadcasts, support, contests and additional benefits. Read full article here

FLIRT STUDIO – More flirt and relations than shows

Flirt Studio was opened in 2011, in Izhevsk, Russia, by Artem, an ex-model in St. Petersburg, who after studying the market, came to the conclusion that it is more tempting to open a studio in a province where there are no other studios. The lack of competition and a minimum investment gave him a fairly quick start, and after years of sincere and hard work, Flirt Studio became one of the best studios in Russia, relying more on a “flirt and relation” strategy than shows.

Artem, did you receive any advice/consultancy from any other studio or from any other experienced person in this field when you started?
Yes, I originally made an agreement with two experienced people in the industry who helped me with opening the studio, for which I am still grateful, but then our paths diverged. At that time the studios didn’t communicate with each other as they do now, and to get or give advice to a competitor was something out of the realm of fiction, so there was no place to get information and I had to rely on my own experience. Well, it gave a certain hardening in business. Taking the Russian market as an example, I think we made a huge change by organizing Russia’s first webcam summit – WTF; changes that were influenced by Romanian summits.

Is there any financial difference between last year and this year’s 1st quarter? Is there any increase in profits?
We have quite a big drop compared to last year, as our partner site has changed the terms of cooperation, so it is quite difficult to switch to them to cover the losses and change the style of work.

Since you started your studio, which was your hardest period?
I think it was 2018, by that time we had made some serious progress in the industry, we had our first summit successfully and the studio was growing at a steady pace upwards, but unfortunately your success in Russia is quickly noticed by other people, well due to the fact that this business is quite “gray” in Russia, the police became interested in me. This was my second criminal prosecution (the first was in 2013), but rather more serious in terms of charges. It’s hard to tell about it in two words, these stories are enough to make a short series on Netflix. Thankfully all ended well, but these wars set the studio back a couple of years in development.
How did you handle it?
My very good and very expensive lawyers handled it ha-ha, and honestly, it was just pure luck.
