One of the leading consultants and marketing experts in the US adult entertainment industry has created a huge guidebook-style blog post on what to do if a performer’s or sexworker’s social media account gets blocked, deleted, frozen or worse. Amberly Rothfield provides a huge pool of resources for anyone affected by the pitfalls of evergrowing attacks on adult entertainment by big tech and governments worldwide.
With the recent refusal of the major credit card issuers to process payments for Pornhub it became pretty clear that the adult industry remains in an extremely vulnerable position everywhere on the planet. Regardless of size and business model performers, companies and platforms are at the mercy of big tech, social media companies, payment processors and populist politicians and their media enablers eager to stifle free speech and reign in on the freedoms the internet provided to sexworkers and the industry so far.
Amberly Rothfield put together a resourceful blog article for sex workers and studios on how to prepare for canceled accounts, frozen assets and a danger many industry members underestimate: the event that a key business partner is going out of business or can’t provide services anymore.
The articles covers a wide range of topics and provides tips on what to look out for when establishing an online business as adult performer including »starting a website, collaborations with other models, keeping a backup copy of all content, using a diverse group of platforms and many more tried-and-true methods.«
While the article is helping people affected by recent events surrounding Pornhub’s problems with Mastercard and Visa, Rothfield highlights that her article is useful for many other issues that might arise with Social Media companies, payment partners or clip platforms. She said: »Everything in this guide can help models set themselves up for success if anything goes wrong, from a website disappearing to having your profile deleted.«
