⋆ How Much Money Do Camgirls Really Make?

how much do camgirls make
 
How much money can you make as a camgirl? This is the most frequently asked question by aspiring webcam models and cam members alike. The answer, of course, varies greatly with which cam site you chose to stream on, how much time you devote to camming, how consistent you are, and your ability to come up with interesting and enticing things to do on cam.
 
It might be easy to get caught up in the fantasy that becoming a camgirl will make you rich. Just look at the lists of highest tips on both Myfreecams and Chaturbate! However, the reality is a little more complex than that. Yes, it IS possible to make good money being a camgirl simply by streaming a few times a week and maybe selling your videos, however, some girls will still make next to zero being online for hours and some will make bank just by sitting in front of their webcam and chatting to members. What makes some camgirls succeed and others fail will be covered in a later post, but for now I want to share the approximate earning potential of a camgirl.
 
As I mentioned, it is quite difficult to average out camming earnings, because of a slew of factors influencing it, but for a camgirl who is semi-established and has the basics down (like a good webcam, lights, and a reliable laptop), she can expect to make…
 
Around $50 an hour. Some days you’ll make $100/hr or more, some days will be a total bust and you’ll end up with just a few bucks in an hour spent on cam. This figure is mostly based on camming on MFC, but Chaturbate closely follows it. On CB, the higher tips are less common, but tips in general are more consistent, versus MFC where tips can be very up and down, but high tips are common, especially if you have a loyal following. This figure considers that you do private shows in addition to public chat, which can be very lucrative. If you’re camming on other sites like Camsoda, for example, your earnings will vary, since it’s still an up-and-coming site and not the most established yet. I do see a lot of potential in it, so check out my post on how to get started.

So, with $50/hr you’re earning a good income, but how much you are able to earn a week or a month depends on your camming consistency and how many hours you are willing to put in each shift. Don’t think it is easy to do an 8-hour work day on cam like you would at a regular job. You might be able to pull it off once in a while, but it’s tough physically and mentally. A more “standard” shift is a few hours long, perhaps 3 or 4 hours. So, going by the hourly wage calculation, you can expect to make around $150-200 a day. Working every day is also not the easiest thing to do, and many girls take multiple days off during the week to relax and do offline things.
 
If you’re consistent with your camming and don’t burn out (Read my post about camming burnout), you can make approximately $1,000 a week and therefore $4,000 a month. This figure is, of course, your earnings before taxes and you will need to save about 15-30% of your income, so that you’re not stuck with a huge bill come tax time. Read about the deductions you can make as a camgirl here. I will also discuss the investment strategies and ways to save and grow your money in a future post.
 
So, there you have it. The mystique is gone. You can can compare what you can potentially make with camming versus other jobs. Don’t forget that unlike a “normal” job, webcamming unfortunately still carries a lot of stigma and you have to deal with a variety of safety issues that are not present in office jobs. You also have a limited career span, and so you really need to consider your options and what your *future* options may be once you leave/retire from camming.
 
Camming can be an incredible job and it is what you make it. There are many girls who become incredibly successful, because they develop a loyal member base and continuously reinvent themselves to keep things interesting. Some make well into the six figures annually, but they’re more the exception to the rule and you may find yourself disappointed if you’re counting on making as much, especially in the beginning.

There has been one camgirl who’s been dominating the Miss MFC charts for a while and her name is RocknRose. You could say she’s been rocking the ranks (and members’ wallets) with an astounding back-to-back wins in February, March, and April of 2018! (As well as three #1s in 2017), and she is poised to win AGAIN this month! She has some loyal tippers helping her make it, and there is a very good chance she will.

So, what is the tip that CRUSHED all others before hers? The previous high tip was a massive 1.2 MILLION tokens ($60,000 USD) tipped to LocaLoca, who is also no stranger to high tips.
 
RocknRose received a chart-topping, mind-bending tip from RocknKing going toward charity in the amount of 1,347,673 tokens! This comes out to $67,383.65 USD. Many would dream of earning this much in a year and RocknRose managed to earn it in one night. What is her secret? One sure way to find out is to visit her room!  😏

Top Non-Nude Myfreecams Camgirls

non nude camgirls
 
Considering that cam sites are bursting at the seams with girls in various stages of undress, can you make money without taking your clothes off? You might think it is impossible, however, there are some girls who have created a VERY lucrative lifestyle by being non-nude on cam.
 
Which site is most geared toward non-nude models?

The answer to that question is simple – It’s Myfreecams. Due to its relaxed atmosphere and relative lack of rules, girls are free to do whatever they want in public and private chats. There is a certain sense of community on MFC, which makes members more likely to want to know a girl better, talk, and have her as a friend. So, taking clothes off and doing an explicit show becomes less of a priority to some, especially when they see that they can make money through entertaining chats, signing, games, or other “performance art”.
 
How do I become a non-nude cam model?

See my post here on how to transition to one and what sorts of things you need to keep in mind.
 
Can I make AS much money as a nude model would?

Yes. But it all depends on your creativity and self-awareness. Can you keep members’ interest? Do you know what sorts of things make you stand out? What are your skills/hobbies/unique interests?

To get some inspiration, check out these three VERY successful non-nude girls below!
 
Most Successful Non-Nude Cam Model on MFC are:


KICKAZ

kickaz myfreecams

Kickaz relies on her artistic skills to entertain. Body painting is her forte and let’s not forget her insane work ethic! She is often found at the top of Miss MFC lists month after month.

OLIVIA

Olivia was the one who started it all. She hardly ever spoke, and instead did performance art shows that created intrigue and some drama, too. She is considered by many as one of the original camgirls who paved the way for non-nude models on MFC. She no longer cams, but her profile is still up, so you never know when she might make her return!

MJXOXO

MJ, currently going by MissChristmas, made her name as a poker-playing camgirl and built a huge following that supports her and plays poker and various other games with her weekly, without her doing any remotely sexual shows. So, you can see that having some unique skill or interest is what it takes to succeed!

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!

OnlyFans is quite a new platform on the camming market, but it’s making huge waves. It’s replacing Snapchat as a way for camgirls to make money through posting photos and videos. It’s getting very popular fast and their affiliate program offers 5% of LIFETIME money earned by models you refer, which is quite a great deal, so make sure to jump on the OnlyFans bandwagon and earn that commission!

ManyVids is a growing community of over 1 million active members and over 10,000 MV models who sell everything from photos and videos to Skype shows and panties.

1.2 MILLION Token Tip on MFC! New Record Set for Highest Single Tip

lolaloca highest tip mfc
 
**UPDATE** There is a new highest tip on the list. Click to see it!

I didn’t think it could be possible, but this month proved everyone otherwise – You CAN beat the incredible 999,999 token tip, which was bestowed upon LocaLoca_ last year. LocaLoca_ lucked out again and received a jaw-dropping 1,200,000 token tip (yes, 1.2 MILLION tokens) as the Miss MFC competition was drawing to a close. It you’re curious about the dollar amount, that would be $60,000 USD. Not bad at all!

To add to the insanity of this month, that massive tip by Mr. Anonymous was STILL not enough for Loca to secure the top spot on the charts. CrazyM_ managed to beat thousands of girls vying for the crown by receiving multiple GIGANTIC tips (999,999tk, 99,999tk and many more). With the help of some amazing and dedicated tippers, she was able to become Miss MFC for the 3rd month in a row! Now, that’s quite the achievement, and she is also the first model to do so.

✨Congratulations to CrazyM_ , as well as to Kickaz who fought hard for that crown!✨
