In the studio account there are options to allow models FULL, LIMITED or HIDDEN viewing options across LiveCams, CallConnect and so on. My question is:
- Is it possible to consider adding a LIMITED option on the Clipstore so that the embed code can be hidden while still allowing access to the video uploading options? That way the model can upload videos and edit/price them, but they are not distracted by the embedding code which would be left to the studio to embed on their sites.
I also have other questions that relate to the Studio account and your business plans for the future, they are:
- Do you have a timeframe for when the Photo Store (or whatever you decide to call it) may be developed and ready for Studios to use (including a Studio LIMITED option to hide the embed code from models).
- Finally, have you considered some form of private message/chat system for offering paid text chat? Basically, a customer can spend credits sending a paid message to a model, and the model can reply back to the customer (for free) and receive a percentage of the credit cost the customer spent to send the message. It would require an Inbox/Compose option in the Customer pop-up panel (or a link to it) and then a similar Inbox/Reply panel in the Model account to receive, read and respond to messages, and of course a nice big sexy Message Me embed code button to display in a models profile page on a website.
If you were to consider developing some sort of text communication system in this way it could be used for various reasons such as Sext Chat, Booking Cam/Call sessions, etc and would be another revenue stream tapping into another market for your company, for Studios and for Models.
If you did consider it, from a Studio perspective, would it also be possible to allow the Studio to view all model conversations within the Studio account and also allow Studios to write replies on behalf of the models from one location. Preferably a list of all new messages and a reply option for all unread messages, on a Studio section, rather than having to manually log-into and check each models control panel to see if there are messages waiting for them.
This would, for example, allow a Studio to quickly respond to customer messages to any model acting as if they were the model, while she were offline, on holiday or just to make the model look more active and busy than she actually is. It would also help if a customer had not received a reply for XXX amount of time, or the Model has left the business, and the Studio could respond to the customer with a message such as "Hi, I am not taking new bookings any more but have you tried contacting my colleague MODEL B." or send promotional messages to customers from the model.
I know through years of experience that other adult businesses within the Phone sex, Text Chat and Dating industries all use these sorts of methods to allow administrators to write messages on behalf of their models and it would be a great tool for Studios to be allowed it, if you did in fact develop a Paid Text Chat solution and take on board my ideas for it.
