A lot of us obsess over our stats and want the numbers to be better than they are. In this week’s podcast episode, Molly and Michael talk about using your stats in a way that actually helps you — including what tools to use and how to get the most from the information your stats provide.
Show notes and episode information for The Smutlancer Podcast. It’s a show about the life of a smutlancer, what it takes to build an audience, and all the things we think and worry about.
Spoiler alert: Both Molly and I have some level of imposter syndrome, and even though we both know better, it still gets to us more often than we’d like. We’re talking about our experiences with it, our tips for dealing with it, and most importantly, forgiving yourself when you realize you let it get to you.
One big way that many smutlancers make a little (or a lot of) cash is through sponsored content and ads. We talk about it a LOT around here, and this week, Molly Moore and Michael Knight are sharing their perspectives from a technical and ethical perspective.
As adult content creators, we’re constantly shadowbanned, kicked off platforms, and told our content isn’t welcome. Censorship is wrong and needs to be fought at all levels. But there are also realities of using non-adult (aka vanilla) platforms when you create adult content.
Molly and I are back again for another mailbag episode where we answer questions from smutlancers, sex bloggers, and people who are curious about how this whole thing works! Ask your questions too — it doesn’t have to be about making money or getting clients. It can be about staying motivated, finding ideas, or juggling professional and personal goals, and much much more!
A lot of sex bloggers and adult content creators worry about which social media platform to be on — or if they should be on all of them. Be shocked…we have opinions. This is a rather long episode, but we go through the big three — Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram — and a few you might not have considered in the past.
Every chance we get, Molly, Michael, and I plead with sex bloggers and adult content creators to self-host their content. Yes, there’s an expense to it (think of it as an investment) and sometimes you have to wait until you can afford to do it. But it’s the only real way to protect your work and not get (completely) booted off platforms.
“Networking” is the term we hear most often when it comes to forging professional connections and relationships. That sounds like a ring of Hell to me. But one thing is true — connections and relationships do help us achieve our smutlancing goals, grow our income, and build a career. Today I’m sharing what I’ve learned through connections I’ve built over the years.
