Get Paid Offering These Services
Here’s all the services models can offer on AVN Stars
Running A Subscription-Based Fanclub
The primary focus of AVN Stars is fanclub subscriptions. When creating a post or uploading content, performers are able to indicate whether the content is public or private. Public content is available to everyone. To access the private content, the site members must subscribe on a monthly basis. In order to keep accessing the content, members must renew the monthly subscription rate every month. The minimum subscription rate is $2 per month, but can be be priced as high as the performer wants it. $8-$15 is the industry standard for fanclub subscriptions.
Premium fanclubs are lucrative because they create a residual income that can easily be scaled up. $8-$10 doesn’t sound like much, but it starts becoming decent money once you start getting into the hundreds and thousands of subscribers. As long as the fanclub is regularly being updated with quality content, the subscriber levels should be ramping up month over month, increasing the revenue as the subscriber count scales.
Selling Individual Videos On AVN Stars
AVN Stars also supports the sale of individual videos. You can find the Clip Store by visiting your profile page, and clicking the Store tab. From there, simply drag your exclusive content to upload, set individual prices for the videos and share with your fans. Make the most of your AVN Stars account by adding the Clip Store to your repertoire!
Sending Locked DMs / Pay-Per-View Messages
Another way to make money through AVN Stars is through sending pay-per-view messages. The concept is simple: Use the messaging system to compose a message, upload some content and set the price. When the recipients receive the DM they’ll be prompted to pay to unlock it and access the content. Pay-Per-View messages is a great way to offer fans and subscribers premium clips that are longer and higher quality than what is normally uploaded to a fanclub (think clip site quality content).
Receiving Tips and Tributes
AVN Stars performers can also receive tips from members. Tips are a way for members to spoil performers outside of the content being sold and the services being offered.
