Harli Lotts (not her real name) knows her audience better than just about anyone I've ever met in online media.
In just two years, the bubbly blonde from El Paso, Texas, has gone from manager of a rent-to-own store to rising internet starlet by making personal connections with a loyal online audience.
And second, it also means the majority of buyers don't ever talk in free chat!
" I ask."Not until right now, actually, talking to you.
I've just realized that, yeah, like, probably it's my best friend right now. Lotts' computer isn't just her best friend -- it's her main revenue generator and her connection, not only to her fans but also to the outside world.
Lotts is a social media star in the truest sense of the word.
She is one of a growing number of independent, live streaming video personalities who can make thousands of dollars in just a few hours broadcasting mostly unremarkable acts for a captive internet audience. Lotts is a cam girl, part of a booming at-home workforce made up of young women -- and a few men -- who are upending the adult entertainment industry and social media at the same time.
