First and foremost, thank you everyone who provided feedback! It really helps me to navigate the Cave in the correct direction and figure out what we can do to not only get sales up, but make it better for you all.
Second, we did see a nice spike in sales the week I posted that topic in the forum so thank you for that too. However, the site has become a ghost town the past couple of days again so if you guys see something you like, please pick it up. And those of you who have purchased, please review the sets when you can. Reviews really do help a lot.
With that said, let me cover what I can based on the feedback.
I knew we would lose a good percentage after switching our format to only 18+ models. Losing some of our favorites for the time being was a tough decision but, in order for us to have a future, it was the correct decision. It truly hurt having to let some of them go but, they understood our reasons and agreed it would be best for all of us.
The good news is, some of your favorites are making their way back. Sophia and Alya are back and look as great as ever. We have another who was new to NCT returning this month as well.
As for the others, I can’t speed up their birthdays as much as I wish I could.
Prices: Most of you do not have an issue with our pricing structure because you use the BC Bucks and coupons as needed. But, there was some feedback saying our prices were too high as they could join a site for what we charge for a set. Which is true but, we arent a public site.
The Cave is closed to the public to allow the models more freedom. They can pose in outfits or states of undress they would never do in the public eye. Even more so now that we are 18+ only.
The Cave started as a way for everyone to chip in for a personal since most did not have the money to order their own. And it grew from there and has become what it is today.
If not for the Cave, you would never see any of these models doing hardcore or girl / girl or the solos they do for that matter.
So, with that in mind, we do not have exposure to tens of thousands of people and the prices reflect that. This is more of an exclusive Club if you will. If we could sell to just anyone, the prices would be a lot lower but, we can’t and wont.
I know the girl / girl sets and videos cost more but you also need to understand, we are paying both of those models and yet I still try and keep it to less than what a set from each would cost. And, the money offered to the model has to be higher than a regular Cave set or, they wouldnt even consider something that Risque. And what they want for hard core is much higher than that.
So, to let everyone in on the action, we started BC Bucks some time ago which rewards you for purchases and reviews. I see many a set go to someone for free after they have saved up enough BC Bucks and its great, it just means they have been a loyal customer and have been rewarded!
So, to conclude on pricing, there isnt much room there. The past few sets I have put up at a great price and they havent moved. So, now I am losing even more because the price is low and its still not selling.
Frequency of Updates: Some feedback mentioned we add too often. Well, a couple of reasons for that but mostly, I am trying to keep the girls working. And with the number of girls we have, and with those coming back, the updates may happen each day.
But also consider the member who has a favorite and only buys her sets. He has waited about a week before he sees an update from her. So, frequency of updates wont change and as the girls come back, it will probably get back to daily as it once was.
I do not expect everyone to buy everything as it becomes available but, my goal is to keep everyone happy.
Something else someone pointed out is the girls comfort level may grow too quickly. And I agree but, think about this. If I told you Sophia was shy and didnt want to do nudes, how many would believe that? I try and stay honest with all of this and let the girls show their personalities as best I can. I do hold them back a little, but what you get is the real them.
As much as I prefer the art of the tease, I am not going to bull shit you guys and I think most of you know that.
Getting to know the new models: Completely understand this. You arent going to drop $25 on a new model you dont know. BUT, thats why everyone here is supposed to be an active member on our sites. The Cave is just an extension of those sites, especially Club New City.
I understand some of you take time off from those sites so I dont bust balls about it. However, how else would you get to know the new models?
If you are a member of Clubnewcity.com you have to have noticed the great crop of freshly 18 girls we have added recently. And like I said, not expecting you to jump right on their sets at the Cave but do yourself a favor and check out CNC when you can. Great new crop of girls.
Wrapping up here I just want to add, we expected things to fall a bit but, some weeks have been horrible and we really cant sustain too many weeks like those. So please try and support the girls as much as you can. I am not expecting anyone to go into debt so some pretty young girls can keep their jobs but please do what you can when you can.
Also, if you have ideas for things you would like to see here or on any of our other sites, I love hearing them.
Please feel free to comment below, feedback is greatly appreciated, always.
