Custom Content Do’s and Don’ts

Custom Content

Choosing to offer custom content is 100% optional. Choosing what custom content you create is also 100% optional. We empower you to say no to anything that makes you uncomfortable and price accordingly for anything you are willing to do. We covered a little bit about custom content in yesterdays blog about pricing your content and we’l. touch back on that here today.

Pricing

Most content creators have a standard per the minute price for basic custom content. usually somewhere between $5-$10 a minute. From there the price per minute can change based on the complexity (and honestly the depravity) of the content being requested. We recommend using the $5-$10 as your starting point as that is the industry average right now. As it is starting to become a buyers market this still keeps your content valuable for the customer, and they wont be going elsewhere for lower prices.

Don’t

We’re gonna cover the Don’ts first because some of most important tips are here: Don’t make customs or send customs until the agreed upon payment has been made. This will help you avoid wasting time on someone who has no intentions of paying for your content or is just trying to jerk you around. Don’t make any content that makes you uncomfortable. Don’t allow customers to set the price of your content. If you tell them $10 a minute, your content is $10 a minute. Allowing the customer to haggle on pricing of content gives them more power and makes them think they can always set the price of your work. Do not allow them to do this. If they tell you it is too much, remind them these are your prices because of the time that goes into making one piece of content for them, and move on. Dont allow anyone to abuse you for your pricing or your unwillingness to preform certain acts. If anyone because abusive towards you for any reason, report them to the platform immediately. Most platforms have a zero tolerance policy on abuse and harassment.

Do

Do stick to the time frame you gave your customer. If you told them they would have their content by friday, make sure they have it by then. Content creators do custom content on a schedule, some give themselves a day to create it, others a few days. What ever you are telling your clients, make sure you stick to that. This also helps to avoid chargebacks (customers cancelling payments with their banks) Do give yourself enough time to create the custom content. If you know you’re going to be too busy for a couple of days to do the content, be upfront with your customer. Don’t tell them you’ll have it by them tomorrow if you know you’ve got too much going on. Most customers will understand the amount of time and effort it takes to film content and will be fine waiting a few days. Do put the same amount of effort into custom content that you would your regular content. Though in most cases you can’t reuse custom content for you main postings, these customers pay more for customs, and if they like your work they’ll keep coming back for more. Do ask permission from the client before you re-use custom content for your regular postings. There’s two reasons for this: It’s the polite thing to do, and if you post it as PPV content, they’ll know not to purchase it as they already have it. I have one customer who asks for custom content every few months, and he’s always super chill about me using it for PPV content a few weeks after he’s enjoyed it, and even thanks me for asking him before using it again. Building these relationships is huge for your success. Do create the content as the customer requested it. If the client requests you doing a certain thing in certain outfits, and you’ve agreed to do so and taken payment for it, you have to do it. Otherwise your customer is going to be unhappy and will never ask for your custom content again. And may even talk to other fans and let them know you don’t honor your agreements. Do give yourself enough time to create the custom content. If you know you’re going to be too busy for a couple of days to do the content, be upfront with your customer. Don’t tell them you’ll have it by them tomorrow if you know you’ve got too much going on. Most customers will understand the amount of time and effort it takes to film content and will be fine waiting a few days.
