Having been in the camming/adult industry for several years, I see this question come up again and again and is much debated among the models. What makes someone a successful webcam model? Not everyone has what it takes and not everyone can maintain it for years (if you want a long, profitable career).
From my personal experience of camming on MFC and watching hundreds of models, here are the 3 CAMMING SUCCESS FACTORS:
Don’t believe in the myth that you have to look a certain way and have a certain body type to succeed in camming. After watching hundreds of successful and not-so-successful models and working out what makes them so appealing, I’ve come to the conclusion that it is *mostly* your personality and how you relate to your viewers that will make you a true success. It does not come on its own, however.
1) WORK ETHIC is something that is not often mentioned (or, rather… seen) when you’re searching for that the one factor that makes a top model a top model. It’s that underlying consistency (how often do you go online each week, how long are your vacations and how frequent, how often do you bail on your shifts?) that makes all the difference in the world. It is what keeps the viewers engaged and creates attachment (which does translate to more tips). Don’t come online consistently? Well, your tippers will find another girl to spend their tokens on.
2) PERSONALITY will need another mention in the future, but for now, I’ll say that you need to try to be yourself and be a more carefree and more confident/comfortable version of yourself on cam. If you don’t feel comfortable, it WILL show on cam.
3) As for LOOKS, keeping yourself healthy and feeling good mentally and physically is important. Try not to drink too much alcohol, eat too much fried food, carbs and sugar, which will make you bloated, and try to get enough sleep. When you’re feeling your best, you’ll look better too!
This article will be expanded on in the future, because there is just SO much to talk about, so stay tuned for camming advice and tips!
