FriendFinder Networks to Attend The Phoenix Forum

FriendFinder Networks (FFN) announced today that a team of the company’s top executives will be hitting The 2017 Phoenix Forum (TPF) to provide current and potential affiliates with new opportunities to promote its vast network of adult dating, social networking, and camming sites.

Attending the event will be FFN CEO Jon Buckheit, along with Marketing Vice President Charlyn McNamara, Digital Marketing Manager Katie Dillon, Business Development Executive Kalyn Sanders, and Business Development Managers Courtney Rudolph and Paul Hoang.

Rudolph, who has attended the event for the last 7 years, says “The Phoenix Forum is one of my favorite trade shows because the entire hotel is shut down just for the event, so you know everyone you see is ready to talk business and make a deal.” She adds, “The beautiful location, friendly faces, and great weather always make for a good time as well.”

The FFN team will be available from March 22 through March 26 at the Tempe Mission Palms Hotel for meetings and networking.
“We are very selective in deciding which conferences to invest our time and money into, and The Phoenix Forum has been consistently strong for us,” says McNamara, who will be attending the event for the first time. “I look forward to developing new partner relationships and fortifying existing ones.”

Cams.com Brings Fans and Models Closer Than Ever This Valentine’s Day

Cams.com announced Friday that the site will be offering special Valentine’s Day themed virtual gifts so members can lavish models with roses, sexy lingerie, champagne, and more.

“Valentine’s Day is a busy time for Cams.com and we want to give members a chance to show their favorite performers how much they’re appreciated,” said Scott Thompson, Director of Product Marketing for parent company FriendFinder Networks. “Our models tend to have a very special relationship with their fans, so it’s a great way for them to connect on a day when everyone could use a little extra love.”

Models love it when members send a seasonal virtual gift when they’re using the site’s revolutionary Buzzmode feature, which gives members the power to buzz a wearable vibrator on the model every time they tip. The combination of the two guarantees a mutually satisfying experience for both parties.

“Valentine’s Day can get pretty expensive between dinner, movies, and everything else that goes along with it. This option is way more affordable, and you still get to spend time with the model of your dreams. Plus you know exactly how the date is going to end,” says Steve Hamilton, Model Manager for Cams.com.

Cams.com provides customers, affiliate marketers, and performers with a state-of-the-art platform powered by Streamray, the live cams division of FriendFinder Networks (FFN).

FriendFinder Networks Wins Top Honors at the 2017 XBIZ Awards

FriendFinder Networks (FFN), the company behind AdultFriendFinder.com and Cams.com, took home top honors at the 2017 XBiz awards. Touted as “the adult industry’s biggest night,” the XBiz awards honors the outstanding achievements of leaders in the online adult entertainment industry.

After receiving a whopping five nominations this year, FFN took home two trophies: one for Adult FriendFinder as Adult Site of the Year – Dating, and another on the executive side for Affiliate Manager Courtney Rudolph, who was voted Marketing Executive of the Year.

“Even after two decades and dozens of awards ceremonies, being recognized by your colleagues and friends in the business never gets old,” said Jon Buckheit, CEO of FriendFinder Networks.  “We have invested a ton of resources not only into maximizing our dating offerings in 2016, but also to amplify our live broadcast platform and appeal.  It’s great to see that people took note and we are grateful to our affiliates, partners, and friends for giving us their votes.”

Rudolph, who also received the GFY award for Best Company Rep, was thrilled to be recognized by XBiz, especially because the award was voted on by the very peers she admires the most. “I really appreciate everyone who voted for me, as well as the amazing team I have the honor of working with every day,” she said.

The 2017 XBiz Awards ceremony was held on January 12th in downtown Los Angeles and hosted by the legendary Ron Jeremy.
