Webcamming is all about using your webcam to broadcast yourself on adult (sex) cam sites in exchange for money. You can make a very significant income in the webcam modeling industry if you know what you’re doing. A cam model, also known as a sexcam, camsex or webcam model, earns money by performing and offering services for adults online. The webcam industry has experienced a huge demand and growth in the past few years which lead to many women (gay, guy, tranny, couples) pursuing it as a career.
A cammodel performs services like dancing, stripping, and sex & fetish-related activities for her fans in front of a webcam. Their performance is broadcasted live from a camera connected to a computer or laptop (or standalone smartphone) to the camming site she broadcasts on. Customers or viewers can watch the cam girl on her page, chat with her, and tip her money to do something specific or activity the cam girl offers. A girl that has chosen to make money camming has to build a unique relationship with the fans on her channel by understanding their needs and desires and providing them with exactly what they are ready to pay for. Whether you wish to become a webcam girl because you have heard about the amazing income or you enjoy the activities of camming , you will need to do your own research and learn everything there is if you wish to be successful and stand out among all the webcam models out there.
I just wanted to create a blog that explained, step by step, how exactly to go about becoming a cam girl, boy, gay, tranny or couple. This is for newbies to the camming business who have no clue where or how to begin the process of entering the field of webcam modeling. I remember how confusing it was when I first started to get interested in webcamming, so my goal here is to help girls who just need to know exactly what to do to get started.
The first thing you should do once you’ve decided to become a cammodel to make sure your equipment is adequate, meaning your computer and webcam or a smartphone. A laptop (notebook or PC) computer bought in the last few years should be suitable for camming. As for webcam devices, Logitech generally makes the best ones. The reason they’re great for webcam girl purposes is that the HD models have excellent video & audio quality, so your viewers will be able to see and hear you great. This is important because the better you look and sound, the more likely people in your chat room are to become aroused by you. This is common sense, but it’s something that, unfortunately, so many newbie cam models don’t realize. If you don’t have the money to get a good webcam, don’t worry though. Even your crappy built-in laptop cam can be enough to get you by until you can save up to buy a decent HD model. I would recommend the Logitech C920, which is a great all-around webcam that many camgirls use. As for internet connection, you’re probably fine if you’ve got cable internet, but if you’ve got "old DSL", you’ll need to test and experiment a bit to see if your speeds are fast enough for camming. Or you have a smartphone or tablet? All right (but not the best idea webcamming via smartphone or tablet). Smartphone is a phone. PC or laptop preferred.
Cam Site Signup
So, when your equipment checks out, you’ll need to decide which cam site you want to begin your camgirl career at. After you’ve signed up, you’ll now be ready to become a cam model for real and begin broadcasting. One thing you need to understand, though, is that you really need to take some time to learn how to manage your chat room. For example, Chaturbate has “apps and bots” which models can use to help make things more interesting for their viewers by providing tipping games and setting up tip goals. You don’t need to know how to use the apps and bots in order to do well, but it helps to have some knowledge of how they work. Just go on cam and experiment with some of them, so that you can get a feel for how they can help you run your room. Token Keno is a great one to start with, and it’s probably the most popular app on the site right now.
Attracting Viewers & Getting Tipped
Once you’re ready to start broadcasting as a cam model for real, you’ll need to know how to go about making your chatroom a fun place to be that attracts visitors. Being talkative and friendly always helps a lot. Smile, laugh, and just be yourself! It really comes through when you’re relaxed and having a good time, so like have a drink or two before you go on cam for the first time. It helps to loosen you up and get you talking easier, which is the first step to building the kind of friendships with your cam viewers that will allow you to make the big money later on. This brings me to the issue of tips. How do you get them to happen, and happen a lot? Well, tipping is actually somewhat complicated. You would think that just being a pretty girl who’s willing to flash and get naked on cam would cause people to start tipping readily. Nope, not that simple. I thought this too, myself, when I first became a cam girl, but I later learned that there was a lot more to it than that. Basically, viewers like to tip girls who they know and like. They’re not just going to tip a stranger, even if she’s hot and willing to do whatever. Well, that’s not exactly true…sometimes a camgirl is hot, and personable, and witty, and perfect in every other way — she will get tipped from the get-go. But the vast majority of us have to actually work for tips! The best way to make tips happen is to make your audience feel like they’re your pals. Viewers will tip you if they feel like you’re their friend — THAT’s when the serious tokens start to flow. Talking and joking around with them will begin the process, but there are also things you can do to engage them and keep their attention which will dramatically boost your ability to get them to tip and buy shows from you. I could literally write a book about this, but no room in this article, so keep reading my blog for more tips and info on how to do camming the right way and maximize your earning potential. With a bit of practice, you’ll be doing great in no time!
If you’re just starting out, don’t expect to make $10,000 per month. Yes, there are several articles that state some models make $50,000 - $100,000 per month, but keep in mind that it took most of these girls years and years to build their career and turn it into a profitable full-time job. But, to give you an idea of your potential earnings, a beginner cam girl can expect to earn around $200 per day on average if she works 3-5 hours a day. The average webcam model earns $1,043 per week from an 18 hour work week. How much a cam girl makes varies based on the amount of experience a cam model has, how much time they dedicate to camming, which cam sites they use and a variety of other factors. The top-earning cam models in the United States earn as much as $6,000 per week, while beginner cam models can earn as little as $100 per week.
How Do You Earn Your First Paycheck?
In order to get paid, you will need to know the rules of your chosen cam site. Some of the best cam girl sites might seem too good to be true when you’re doing research, but that’s only because you may not have considered the commission rate. That is how the system works - you charge for a service you’ve provided on the website, and that website takes a commission for your service. Usually, the commission ranges from 40 to 50%, but make sure to check that detail before signing up on a site. After all, it will have a tremendous impact on your earnings. Once a webcam girl signs up on a cam site, she is expected to set up her payment details. You should provide your bank account details or other payment details and ensure this method is approved by the website. Once your account has been verified, you will be able to start your first live show and earn money. However, setting up your prices is vital before you dive into all of this. A good piece of advice would be to talk to or watch other camgirls to find out how much they charge and what works best for them.
How to Manage Your Income
Prepare yourself for a wild ride! There is lots to expect once you start working as a cam girl, from the chance to earn an incredible amount of money, to being connected online for hours, and watching the number of your viewers rise. However, it’s important to know all the things you can do to protect yourself financially. Don’t be a model who neglects her finances and then blames it on the industry because she wasn’t able to succeed. To help you make the most out of your income, make sure to follow our tips so you always have money in your bank account:
- Have an emergency fund of at least 3 months of living expenses deposited into your savings account.
- Once you start earning a significant amount of money, think about consulting fund managers and invest in mutual funds.
- Track your expenses and determine your monthly budget. All the items you decide to purchase should be included in your budget, as well as your other costs.
- Prepare a one-year financial calendar by setting realistic targets and goals.
Another thing you should consider is expanding your services. Don’t limit yourself to just live shows and private shows on the website. Think about extra streams of revenue and create your own camgirl starter pack where you can offer various services to your audience. Don’t Compare Yourself to Others. Despite knowing the answer to “How much do cam girls make?” it’s difficult to determine the average income because it depends on the hours worked, time of day, platform, skills, appearance, target audience, etc. This means you shouldn’t compare yourself to other girls in the industry, especially at the beginning of your career. Stay true to your individuality, and if you want to learn something useful from experienced girls, it’s smart to ask them for advice and connect their performances to their income. Income is a consequence of your work and it shouldn’t be the first thing you think about. You’ll need to figure out many aspects of your performance before you even think about receiving big paychecks. Be objective and set personal goals. Decide how many hours you will work and on which days you will perform. Think about the maximum number of hours you can dedicate weekly to your new job. Don’t forget to include your preparation time, such as shopping for clothes, preparing your show, setting up your room, etc. Accept that things take time and do the best you can with the tools you have at your disposal. Learn and grow on your cam journey and make sure that if you want to make changes or improvements, write them down and incorporate them into your shows. Once you start earning, you may want to purchase items to contribute to your performances. Consider them an investment instead of a cost. Most importantly, have fun 😍 I wish you the absolute best in your career as a cam model.
