Some performers create unique content customized to their client’s exact specification. You can charge more for this service, but there are many other reasons why people may offer custom video services. Let’s talk about the benefits!
What is a custom video?
Sometimes a customer will want you to create custom content for them. This might be custom photos, audio files, or most popular – a custom video. Some creators specialize in this type of individual custom content. Once a video is created, the person who ordered it gets a copy of it without having to pay for it a second time, since they already paid for the content to be created. You can then re-sell copies of that custom video or post them to your premium websites for subscribers to see if you do not have an agreement with the customer that the content is exclusive (only for them to see.)
How much do you charge for a custom video?
Usually, I recommend people charge enough for a custom video that it covers your costs of filming – such as any supplies, extra wardrobe or location – plus an appropriate amount per hour for your time spent filming & editing the product. Some people choose to charge more or less, depending on their preferences! For example, if you are out of ideas of what to film, running a sale on this service can get you a bunch of quick scripts to churn out. Or, if you are backed up with more custom orders than you want to fulfill, you may want to start charging more and more so that you are capitalizing on your high demand.
Ask for your funds for the custom video up front, but only after you’ve determined you’re comfortable offering the video they want and have agreed to a price and timeline. Or, use JustFor.Fan’s built in custom video menu so that your customers can simply submit an order form and pay for their video immediately.
Custom Videos Allow You To Explore New Genres With Zero Financial Risk
It’s pretty obvious that offering custom videos can immediately boost your income stream. However, I think their real hidden power lies in the ability to let you explore new types of content that you wouldn’t ordinarily film. By exploring interesting fetishes, wardrobe preferences, and concepts you may be able to find a new fan base. When the production of the film has already been paid for up front by your enthusiastic custom client any sales you make from thereon out will be pure profit – you’ve already cleared your initial cost & time investment. This gives you an opportunity to learn which types of content sell well for you without having to risk your time on content that won’t sell.
