Top Passive Income Sources for Camgirls: How to Maximize your Camming Earnings!

passive income camming

 

Passive income (Income resulting from cash flow received on a regular basis requiring minimal to no effort to maintain it) is something that many dream of. By contrast, “active” income takes consistent work, so live camming earnings is one example of active income. Being self-employed and making your own hours does afford you a lot of freedom to spend that time however you wish, so it’s best to spend it on things that will make you money long after the job is done. Clip-making/selling photos and videos and creating blogs require some upfront investment (your time), but then they can make you money indefinitely, literally in your sleep! If you want to expand your income opportunities and not have to rely 100% on your camming earnings, read on!


Top 3 Passive Income Ideas for Camgirls

 

Selling Your Photos and Videos

Arguably the BEST way to make passive income as a camgirl is to shoot videos and photos to later resell them on sites like ManyVids or Customs4U (I recommend using ManyVids, as it’s the largest platform of its kind and gets A LOT of traffic). You can also sell the same videos on Chaturbate or MFC for tokens or even create your personal site to make them available to even more people. The best thing is that you don’t need much equipment to get started. A webcam or a simple camcorder will work for videos and you can buy a basic DSLR camera to shoot professional-looking photos. Check out my post on how to get started making videos!

 

Posting Pics and Videos on OnlyFans

While it’s not completely passive, OnlyFans (Snapchat clone that requires members to pay to receive your pics and videos) is a great platform to very easily make money and do so without the hassle of trying to get members to pay for Snapchat and making sure they renew on time. It also allows members to send you tips and that’s where the passive component comes in. It’s great waking up to a tip or two. 😉 Read my OnlyFans review here.

 

Camming Affiliate Programs

Last, but definitely not least, is making commissions from camming affiliates. It’s an underrated way to make great money, but if you do it right, it will create absolutely passive, long-term income without you having to lift a finger. The key is to figure out where you will be posting the affiliate links and promoting the site. You can so this by creating a camming-related blog (Read my post about it here) or promoting online on platforms like Twitter, Reddit, or other forums. Get creative! Make sure you’re following their terms and conditions, however, since you can be easily banned for posting adult-related content.

The first thing to do is to sign up to the various camming programs that you want to promote as a Webmaster/Affiliate.

The best-performing programs are those that pay you via “Revenue Sharing”, so they pay you commission on the portion of the revenue that you bring in through your link. Chaturbate and MFC have the highest RevShare commissions (20%!) and are the easiest to get started on, in my opinion. Click on the links to sign up:

Best Pan, Tilt, and Zoom (PTZ) Webcams for Camming

best webcams camming

 

You may have seen these webcams in cam land that will pan and zoom around the girl’s body with a remote. The remote control effect is striking and is really fun for the viewers. It really makes the members take notice and stick around for much longer than they would’ve otherwise! While most camgirls use “standard” webcams (Take a look at the top ones here), if you want to take your cam game to the next level and invest in your camming success, these so-called “conference cams” are worth checking out. They’re pricey, but they should be seen as an investment, as you WILL see increased interest and therefore tips after upgrading to them. Additionally, you should always be writing off your camming equipment on taxes, whether it be webcams or laptops, so it’s a win-win situation! Read all about the tax deduction rules here. Without further ado…

Top 5 Camming Affiliate Programs

Best Camming Affiliate Programs

Cam models and members alike can benefit a lot from affiliate programs that give you commission on the money spent by people you refer through your affiliate links. It takes virtually no time to sign up to these programs and the passive income potential is quite literally endless! It all depends on how many people click on your links and sign up through you.

Some programs offer commission per signup, some only pay you when a new user adds their credit card details and makes first purchase, and yet another commission structure is revenue-share, where you are offered a set percentage (5-20%) on the revenue earned by the model or tokens purchased by a member. I find rev-share programs to be the most lucrative, however every one offers some additional passive income and should be utilized for maximum money-making potential!

The BEST camming affiliate program, AND the best revenue-sharing program is one by Chaturbate. It is the most generous in the adult/camming industry and every Chaturbate model AND member should be taking advantage of it. You don’t even need to be on Chaturbate to promote it. How you do it is up to you – be in through Twitter, blogs, or forums, as long as you don’t spam or use illegal methods to get clicks.


chaturbate affiliate program

Chaturbate’s affiliate program offers a MAJOR 20% LIFETIME revenue share, so 20% of all money spent by referred members will be paid out to you. Additionally, you make $50 per broadcaster you refer through your link, and 5% on all affiliate earnings from referred webmasters. Of course, there is no guarantee that the members who sign up through you will ever spend any money, but you increase your chances of catching a “whale” by getting your link out in the world and promoting!

Myfreecams affiliate program
 
Myfreecams has its own Bring-a-Friend program, which I discuss here and it works fairly well, however, MFC does not offer great customer support when it comes to payouts or any issues that you may have with tracking clicks.

To promote Myfreecams more reliably (with great tracking tools and support) is to do it through CrakRevenue. It is an established and highly-regarded adult affiliate network. You can try both the Bring-a-Friend and the CrakRevenue program to compare the two and decide which one works better. CrakRevenue offers $2.5 per member sign up, and those sign ups can add up fast if you’re promoting it well!

Scams in the Camming Industry to Watch Out For

scams camming
 
Although scams happen on both sides of the camming equation – from members AND models, I will focus on the ways you can be scammed as a camgirl, and ways to prevent it, because unfortunately there are a lot of people wanting to take advantage of newbie and inexperienced models who are just entering the industry.
 
AGENCIES/STUDIOS/PROMOTERS: There is NO need for anyone starting out in camming to be signing up with an agency or a studio. Please remember this very important tip! You should be signing up with the cam sites directly, without anyone else’s interference, as these studios bind you to a contract and take a percentage of your earnings, for supposed “promotion” and assistance. You can do your OWN promotion on Twitter, Instagram, Manyvids, etc. There are a ton of avenues to bring in traffic, and none should include an agency or a promoter. You may also encounter some Twitter promoters who will ask you for naked photos or even free Skype shows(!) in order to promote you online. Don’t fall for this tactic and don’t do anything that makes you uncomfortable. Be completely independent. Take a look at this post to try out some sites and sign up with them directly and read up on some beginners guides to get started. Studios cannot give you any extra advice that you won’t find yourself online.
 
MEMBERS WHO SCAM: Unfortunately, there are a lot of members who frequent cam sites who are just looking for a freebie and have no desire to pay for your services, ever. At best, they will be merely annoying and ask for a free show, but at worst, they will promise to tip you or pay you with Amazon gift card or PayPal after you’ve done a show and never do, or will retract that payment. You should approach anyone offering to pay you *too* much for a Skype show with skepticism. It will almost always be over Skype, since they want to take you away from a cam site that would require them to tip for a show. They will always promise to tip you right after the show and then disappear and block you. OR they may pretend that they’ve sent a payment (such as sending a fake Amazon gift card email) or sending money through PayPal. With PayPal, that payment can always be reversed, so please only accept it from a member that you’ve known for a long time and one you trust. The bottom line is, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. There are so many stories of girls being scammed this way: by giving a long, explicit show and never getting the payment. So, be very careful with Skype and only accept to do a show once the tokens have been deposited to your account, as that is the best method to ensure you’ll get paid.
 
MEMBERS WHO STALK: There is another type of member who will become enamored with you (in an unhealthy way) and try to get as much information from you as he can by pretending to be your friend. This can be done in a few ways. They can straight up ask you about things like where you live, what sort of events you go to in your city, etc. by acting friendly and curious. Be vigilant about answering these types of questions, as you don’t know how this information can be used and by whom. Read my post about camming safety and security for specific tips. What these members can also do is send you links to supposed funny images or videos that will lead them to get your specific IP address, which will reveal your city and potentially your approximate location in the city. They can then put these pieces of information together to find out who you are and then harass, blackmail, or stalk you.
 
Being a cam girl is not the easiest job in the world, because it comes with challenges like these and people who will want to take advantage of your inexperience. Be extra careful and use common sense, and when situations feel weird, never be afraid to say No.
