In this time, it’s a great idea to decide what cam equipment you need or may want to upgrade. While the members will be there for YOU, a bad webcam or lagging video feed can turn off potential tippers. It’s important to ensure you are streaming with the best possible equipment.

WEBCAM: Go for the best external webcam on the market – Logitech Brio, and don’t bother with the built-in one on your laptop. The video quality will be quite poor.

LIGHTING: Lights are often not given enough attention, but they are a really important part of looking your best on cam. One tip is to do a 3-point lighting setup with some umbrella lights to illuminate you from all angles and hide any imperfections.

LAPTOP: Look for one that is high in RAM (memory) and one that has an i7 Processor, which will ensure seamless streaming and will be great for video/photo storage and editing. Asus K501UX is a great camming laptop. See this post for more.

MIC: Another great tool for any camgirl is an external mic, like the Blue Yeti mic. It will really take your camming to the next level!

This might seem like a lot of equipment to get, but not to worry, you can buy these items as the time goes on and prioritize them as you see fit.

 

What is Chaturbate’s Payout Percentage? How Much Money Can You Make?

Chaturbate pays models 50-60% of the token purchase value, which members can buy in different packages. For the model, 1 token = 5 cents no matter the token package. Chaturbate pays out twice a month, on the 15th and the last day of the month either by check, direct deposit (US only) Payoneer or Paxum.

There is also a great “Daily Pay” option for US camgirls, where you can get your money earned sent you daily, for a fee. This is a GREAT option for anyone needing the money asap.

How much money you make will depend on how much you put into it, but there are a ton of girls camming on CB full-time and making great income.

How To Succeed on Chaturbate

Unlike Myfreecams, Chaturbate is a more sexual site, where it’ll be more difficult to make a lot of money as a non-nude model, but it’s still possible to succeed as a tease model by dancing, playing sexual games, doing flashes for tips, etc. Cum shows will, of course, draw the most tippers and tokens, so if you’re comfortable with that, definitely give it a go! Here are some money-making tips:

Make Money in Public Chat

Set token goals and offer smaller “prizes” like flashes, to keep the guys engaged. Don’t forget to move around, touch your body, and SMILE!

Make Money with Privates

Chaturbate has a private function, where you can accumulate more tokens by going to a one-on-one private with a member, and this kind of show will likely be most sexual.

Make Money Selling Photos and Videos

Upload your photosets and videos on your profile, so that guys can purchase them even when you’re offline. A great idea to supplement this by signing up with Manyvids. It’s one of the most popular video selling platform for camgirls.

Use Chaturbate Bots

Chaturbate offers helpful bots to its models that can keep track of your countdowns, tips, post messages in your chat, thank your tippers automatically. It’s a really great feature, so definitely make use of it!

Be Consistent!

This is the last tip, but possibly the most important one. Consistency is key in camming, and there is no better advice than just showing up at the same time and same days on cam, even when it’s slow or you really don’t want to. It will pay off in the end, because you’re “training” your members to tune in to your stream and tip you consistently. As your consistency increases, so will your earnings.

And that’s it! Most of it will become really easy with practice and you can take it very slow in the beginning. The key is to 👉 Begin – Sign Up Now! Good luck!

⋆ MFC vs Chaturbate: Which Cam Site Should You Join?

myfreecams chaturbate review best camsite

 

Myfreecams has been a popular choice for camgirls everywhere who wanted to make money in a social, hangout type of camsite that didn’t require them to put on extra sexual shows and generally had very few restrictions on what was allowed to be broadcast compared to other camsites. However, in the last few months MFC’s traffic has gone down considerably according to Alexa rankings and the general perception. Multiple unannounced site outages definitely did not help their case, and many girls have been trying out other sites.

myfreecams traffic stats

Chaturbate has been shaping up as a very serious contender for the best camsite on the net, and many girls have been switching to Chaturbate despite having been totally loyal to MFC for years. Diversifying your income is never a bad idea, so trying out different camsites and finding one that works best for you is something everyone should do.

Here is  a comparison between MFC and CB and a review of the pros and cons of each, so you can decide which one is better suited for you.

 

Myfreecams Review

myfreecams vs chaturbate review

PROS

  • Less overtly sexual (although cum shows definitely happen a lot), more social, low key atmosphere in a lot of the rooms.
  • Girls only site. No men allowed on or off camera, which adds to the hangout/social feel.
  • Fairly good and consistent customer service. Not so much lately.
  • Payout percentage: An average of about 61.4% of all (gross) money spent. 1 token tipped = $0.05 for the model.
  • Highest earning potential out of all camsites. Guys seem to tip largest single tips compared to other sites. (See my post on the highest tips on MFC). Top girls make $xx,xxx a month. (See my post on how much MFC models make).
  • Few rules and restrictions. One big one is the no camming in public rule.

CONS

  • Outdated user interface, very few useful site additions are made despite girls asking for them.
  • Poor company communication about site downtime, glitches, etc. Girls are left in the dark.
  • Popular rooms are sorted by camscore, which could make it harder for new models to rank well from the start.
  • Lower traffic as of late and no attempt to fix it by spending more money on marketing.
  • Nonexistent Affiliate or Referral Program, aside from their Bring-a-Friend program for members.

Chaturbate Review

chaturbate vs myfreecams review

PROS

  • Traffic and popularity is on the rise = more members in your room to tip you. See the traffic stats below.
  • Allows couples to stream (in addition to guys and trans), which can add to your earnings.
  • Good social media presence and customer service.
  • Payout percentage: 50%+ depending on the value of the token package the member buys. You receive $0.05 per 1 token tipped, like you do on MFC.
  • Lots of useful site updates, including room bots and apps that are really helpful and fun during broadcasts.
  • Rooms ranked by the numbers of viewers unlike on MFC, so in theory, a newbie can reach the top row with a crazy show.
  • Great Affiliate Program that both models and non-members can use for a passive income stream.

chaturbate traffic stats

CONS

  • More sexual atmosphere, you’ll likely have to put on sexual shows to do well on the site.
  • Lower average earnings. Members are not as likely to give large single tips to models as much as they do on MFC.
  • Bans can be frequent due to rule-breaking or even seemingly ‘just because’. Very inconsistent in terms of what is allowed on cam.

⋆ Best Tip-Controlled Vibrators for Camming: OhMiBod vs Lovense

best tip controlled vibrators

There has been a lot of interest in tip and sound-activated toys and using them for cam shows. There has also been talk of them being a scam with girls faking their orgasms and lying about the strength of the vibrations from the tips they get (Particularly on Chaturbate). Hopefully this post will clear this up!

Currently, there are two main companies that manufacture sound-controlled vibrators – OhMiBod and Lovense. OhMiBod got a lot of hype with their Club Vibe that vibrated with sound, which girls used on cam to have it interact with the tip sound from the speakers. However, Lovense has gone a step above and created their vibrators to respond specifically to tips, which make them the perfect toy for camming. Girls who use OhMiBod toys are not exactly telling the truth when they say that higher tips equal stronger vibrations, but who can blame them? It’s a VERY lucrative setup for making money on cam.

 

OhMiBod Review

OhMiBod was first on the market and a few years ago, and they’ve now come out with a variety of interactive toys. In partnership with Kiiroo (#1 maker of male interactive sex toys) they’ve created two toys that will connect to other Kiiroo devices are are app-activated!

 

OhMiBod Esca 2

esca kiiroo camming

  • Versatile wearable massager with a built-in LED indicator.
  • Bluetooth-enabled for app-controlled play, you can engage with your lover from across the room or across the world.
  • Ergonomically designed to rest against your G-spot.
  • Connect your Esca2 to another KIIROO toy and let your partner drive pleasurable sensations for a truly interactive experience.

Buy Esca 2

 

 

 

OhMiBod Fuse

  • Dual-stimulation massager is Bluetooth-enabled with two-way communication.
  • Touch-sensitive technology that reacts to your body’s natural movements.
  • The built-in sensor technology allows for bi-directional control of connected devices. Either of you will be able to drive the action.
  • This interactive G-spot vibrator is fully compatible with one of the worlds’ most renowned sex toys for men: The Fleshlight Launch.It also syncs it to other interactive vibrators like the KIIROO Pearl2.

Buy Fuse

 


Lovense Review

 

Lovense took app-activated vibrator game to the next level by introducing a Chrome extension (in addition the Lovense smartphone app) that gives you full control of how your toy will respond to tips. Eg. If someone tips you 10 to 20 tokens, it will vibrate on a low setting. If someone tips 20-50, it will go higher, for 50+ tokens it will rotate, etc. It’s highly interactive and innovative! It’s also very easy to install and work with and really fun for the viewers. This extension is compatible with Chaturbate, Myfreecams, BongaCams, CamSoda and Flirt4Free.

There are currently 2 vibrators in the lineup and 1 buttplug:

Nora

  • The Original Bluetooth Rabbit Vibrator! Features:
  • Rotating head: Easily stimulate your G-Spot
  • Optimized shaft: Designed to gently stimulate the right places during thrusting.

Camming Advice for Beginners! Tips to Succeed from the Start

camming advice for beginners

Below is some beginner advice for anyone starting out in webcamming!

I find it’s pretty important to be prepared before you jump into camming and there are certain mistakes newbies make, which can be prevented, so read on!

 

✳ ARE YOU READY?

First off, are you mentally and emotionally ready for this job? Yes, it can be easy money (See my post on how much money top camgirls make), but it doesn’t mean that this kind of success will be possible for everyone. You need to know in your mind what your personal reasons are for doing this job. If you think you’ll be making thousands from the start and rolling in cash, I urge you to reconsider, because you’ll be very disappointed to find it harder than you thought to get members to tip and to interact and keep coming back to your room. Because camming is getting more and more mainstream, more girls are joining cam sites (and more camsites are popping up in general), so there are a lot of girls to choose from and not as many members willing to pay with free porn readily available. Some members also have the “freeloader” mentality where they don’t feel they should pay girls for talking to them and they will let others finish countdowns and just, well, freeload.

So, knowing that you’ll have to put in a LOT of time (and a bit of money from the start by buying some essential equipment like webcam, lights, laptop, etc.) you will hopefully have more reasonable expectations about camming, and that if things are slow from the start, you will still push on and not give up. It takes dedication and time to build an audience, so don’t be disappointed if your earnings are low in the beginning.

 

✳ MARKETING

Another mistake new camgirls make is not knowing how to market themselves. Camming is so much more than turning on your webcam and looking pretty on cam. You need to assess your skills and what you can bring to the table (without forcing it!). You need to highlight the skills, interests and hobbies that you already have, and you’ll see that guys will naturally gravitate toward that. If you’re into gaming, show it! Talk about the new game you got on Steam or even stream it on cam (some sites have restrictions about streaming outside content, so be careful). If you’re into makeup and dressing up, perfect! Make every show an experience and really show your creative side. Even if you don’t have any “interesting” hobbies, you can still show your unique personality and make your room reflect that. So, the key is be yourself, but a “bigger” version of yourself, and do not try to force yourself into the sex kitten type that you feel you need to be on cam.

On the subject of marketing, you need to decide what your marketing strategy will be. Having a Twitter is a big one, which makes it easier to interact with your fans by posting pics and talking about the day-to-day things in your life. Some girls have Tumblrs where they can write longer posts and share more of themselves. Some girls even create their own sites where they have member content and shows. Come up with some sort of strategy of how you’ll be promoting yourself online, because these days members almost expect to be able to reach you offline and see more of you outside of cam.

 

✳ PRIVACY

A lot of girls start out in webcamming by being employed in another job or having other responsibilities, which take up the majority of their time and make it hard to manage a consistent schedule. This ties into my Number 1 rule of camming, which is consistency. If you don’t have it, you won’t be able to build up a consistent group of regulars and your earnings will suffer. What also happens when girls first start out is they don’t have the right physical place and time to cam from. You may still be living at home, or with roommates, or have kids in the house, which is fine when having a “regular” job, but may be very difficult with camming. You may get very little privacy and be forced to work really odd hours around any of these factors, which will be detrimental to your income. There is no easy way around it. You will either have to come clean about camming to the people you’re living with, or move out, or quit your day job. It’s a hard decision for sure, but unless you have privacy and time for cam, you won’t be able to reach your full potential.
When considering privacy, are you ready for the fact that your shows will be recorded and posted online? This happens to every camgirl, sadly, and there is no way to avoid it. The only thing you can do is either ignore it or sign up with the Cam Model Protection service that will take down your pics/screencaps/videos. See my post about additional privacy tips and how to protect your content from being recorded.

All in all, patience and research are key! Being smart about it you can get a head start and succeed from the start. Good luck!

⋆ Camgirl DMCA Takedowns: Content Protection & Anti-Piracy

cammodel protection dmca
 
This situation is dreaded by any cam model – when you google your name and find screencaps and recorded videos of your camshows online. Worse yet is when they’re reposted to major porn sites. Unfortunately, no matter how well you may try to protect your privacy (by locking down your twitter, blocking certain locations on your camsite), the more time you spend camming, the more likely you’ll find your content illegally reposted online. It’s a terrible situation to be in, because you feel like you have no control, and as these images spread, they may be found by your friends, family, or coworkers and cause a lot of heartache.

 

So, How Exactly Can You Remove your Content?

Some cam sites offer DMCA takedown services for camgirls, but they are only somewhat effective. For example, Myfreecams uses a service to help you take down the videos by having you look for and submit the links to them, which they’ll then follow up on on your behalf. Only some of these sites will actually take down your content and the majority will ignore it and will continue to host your stolen pics and videos.

That’s where Cam Model Protection comes into play.

 

cammodel protection

Anti-Piracy and Privacy Protection for Camgirls

It’s a service that will remove…

  • Illegal downloads
  • Videos on tubesites
  • Search engine results

Here is what they say:

“By using Cam Model Protection you will be using the latest technologies to locate and remove your pirated content quickly. By monitoring the internet 24/7 we locate your stolen content within no time and send DMCA takedown notices to file hosting sites, tube sites, search engines and ISP’s that are hosting or linking to your stolen content.”

**Cam Model Protection is the only DMCA takedown service that has been able to successfully remove Upstore links, which are next to impossible to take offline.**

This is an incredible service for everyone who is not having luck removing their content online or is overwhelmed with constantly having to monitor it themselves. It comes with three different packages, and even though it might seem pricey, the peace of mind you’ll get using it is worth it. Here is what they each offer:

You can also do a Free Trial to see how you like the service, which is a great feature.

And best of all, your members can donate it to you by going to this link and purchasing any type of membership package. Click on the Donate button at the top of the page.

All in all, it is a VERY useful and camgirl tried-and-tested service to check out, and I’ve been very impressed with the reviews it’s been getting so far and my own personal experience!

More Security Tips:

Here are some additional tips on how to minimize your exposure and chances of your recordings showing up online. These tips work, but they come at a cost as well – your income potential.

  • Don’t do public cumshows, and do them only in privates or groups, or not at all, so that people recording you can’t see you do them in public chat.
  • Change your cam name often, so that it’s harder for people to search for you. Not the best strategy, but some models swear by it.
  • Don’t have a huge social media presence, including Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Tumblr, so that your photos can’t be spread as easily and you’re not as visible online. Lock down your Twitter and do the same with other social media.

 

Good luck and stay safe!
