Making Money (and Keeping Sane) While Self-Isolating

camming work from home

Making Money in the Time of Coronavirus

These are pretty uncertain times and it can be a struggle for camgirls, and the world at large, to keep the motivation going. It’s easy to slip into depression and bouts of anxiety and panic with everything that’s going on with this coronavirus pandemic, but keeping a daily schedule and keeping yourself busy with work is a great solution to the problem we’re all facing.

Luckily, the adult industry does not seem to be affected as much as other industries, and some might say it is even *thriving* despite the global pandemic. There are more people at home and self-isolating, and so they are looking for social contact and entertainment/enjoyment from cam sites and subscription platforms, like OnlyFans. Quarantine or not, there will always be a demand for porn and other adult services, so working as a webcam model in these times is actually quite advantageous.

Where to Start

So, you need to make money at home and you don’t know where to start? Here is a list of the best resources for making money while in quarantine:

  1. Best Camsites to Start on (click to read more!): My recommendation would be to start with the industry’s “Gold standard” – Chaturbate – and then try out other sites to see how they compare. Check out my Beginners Guide for Webcam Models.
  2. Adult-Friendly Snapchat Alternatives (click to read more!): OnlyFans is killing the game right now! Girls are making thousands of dollars a month from posting photos, vids, and DMing their followers. Check out my posts on How to Get Started on OnlyFans and How to Keep Increasing your Income!
  3. Passive Income Sources for Camgirls (click to read more!) – Sometimes you just want to take a break and not stream at all. When you’ve got passive income sources set up, you can make money while you sleep. I recommend checking out camming affiliate programs, as the earnings definitely add up over time! One of the best programs in the industry is the Chaturbate Affiliate Program (you don’t eve need to be a model to sign up and make $$$)

Staying Sane

Making money is great, but how on earth do you stay sane during times like these?

While playing videogames all day is a-ok, even that will become boring after a while, and so a great way to keep yourself mentally on track is…

  • Structure – Try to wake up at the same time each day and not sleep in too much, keep your meal times pretty structured as well, as well as your bedtime.
  • Some type of exercise – Walking around the block or to a neighborhood park, a beach or a non-crowded hiking trail (whatever is available!)
  • Get some sun every day! ☀️ Great mood booster!
  • Get creative. Do something with your hands (crochet, macrame, bead work, drawing, painting, calligraphy, pottery, gardening) The options are endless.
  • Set small goals to achieve each day – This will give your brain and body added dopamine boosts throughout the day!
  • Keep in touch with people who you care about and who care about you. It can be anyone, and doesn’t have to be family, if they’re not supportive or are negative.
  • “This too shall pass”. Give yourself positive affirmations that you will get through this.

⋆ How to Get Started on OnlyFans: Make $4,000+ a Month!

OnlyFans review camgirl

OnlyFans is becoming a VERY lucrative way of making passive income for camgirls without ever having to do live camming! Girls are reporting that they are making $1,000+ a week simply by uploading pics, streaming videos, and messaging their fans. It’s like a Snapchat and a fanclub platform in one! How much you can make on OnlyFans depends on how many members sign up to your account and pay your monthly subscription price.

As an example: To get to the Top 1% earners on OnlyFans you need approximately 725 fans with a subscription price of $9.99!

So, how do you start? It’s easy and almost instant! Just follow the steps below:

 

1. CREATE YOUR ONLYFANS ACCOUNT

It’s 100% free to create an account and it can be done in minutes! OnlyFans doesn’t require you to sign any contract and you will receive 80% of all the money that your subscribers pay for your content! That is an incredible earning percentage! OnlyFans provides a very high quality platform that is constantly improving and adding new functions to make you earn even more. Combined with great customer service and a straightforward user interface, it’s an unbeatable way to make semi-passive income as a camgirl!

2. SETTING YOUR SUBSCRIPTION RATE

What makes OnlyFans so lucrative is the combination of your subscriber numbers and your subscription rate. You decide what you want to charge members to see your content. It can range from Free to $49.99/month. Imagine how much you can earn with having your subscription on the high end of the range! However, most girls charge about $9.99/month and it seems most customers/fans prefer prices in this range. You have to be realistic about it and make the membership price affordable. You can still make a lot of money for setting a ‘low’ subscription price amount and therefore attracting many more subscribers.

 

3. PROMOTE YOUR ONLYFANS PROFILE

Now that you have your account, it’s time to figure out what to post on it and how to promote it! Posting is easy – sexy pics and videos that you post *consistently* that also seem personal is what will make your members stick around and maybe even tip you extra!

The most effective way to promote your OnlyFans account is on your existing social media platforms (Twitter, Instagram, etc) as well as on a personal blog, if you have one. You can also promote it on cam, but be careful, some sites do not allow outside promotion. The more your promote – the more subscribers you’ll get, and will be well on your way to earning a 4-figure income each month. Many camgirls have even quit live camming in favor of OnlyFans because of how much easier it is to make money!

 

4. RETAINING YOUR FANS & MAKING EVEN MORE MONEY

Ultimately, fans want your content, so give your fans what they want! Personal messages are key, in my opinion, because they create feelings of intimacy. You can send out free or locked messages (PPV messages) that members would pay for. Being consistent in your posting (say, a few times a day) in addition to creating a varied mix of content (eg. different photosets, videos, polls, personal posts) will keep members engaged and wanting more. Here is a post with some specific tips on how to succeed on OnlyFans! You can even succeed as a non-nude model if you have a big enough fan base built up.

 

5. ONLYFANS AFFILIATE PROGRAM

Don’t forget to make use of OnlyFans’ generous Referral Program. Once you create an account, you will be given you unique referral link that you can use to recruit other models to join. Once they sign up and start earning you will make 5% of their total earnings for LIFE!  That’s a pretty sweet deal and is 100% passive.

⋆ Adult-Friendly Snapchat Alternatives

snapchat adult alternative
 
As a camgirl in the modern world, it is almost expected by members that you have Snapchat access as one of the offline perks you offer. Sending quick pics and videos to members is a GREAT way to make fairly easy cash, promote yourself, as well as promote your others deals, and simply keep members’ interest.

However, Snapchat was not made for adult sites (though, it does of course feature adult content). There is no easy way to go about setting up payment for it, as this feature was not built in. So, camgirls face the problem of setting up recurring membership payments (offline tips or other ways), and then chasing members for payments as memberships expire. This doesn’t seem like a lot of fun for anyone involved, and so adult Snapchat alternatives have cropped up and are getting more and more popular. Best of all, they also accept “just because” tips or tributes from members, so you can make even more money with no extra effort. This is why I find these platforms great for making passive income.

Here are the Best Camgirl-Friendly Alternatives to Snapchat:

⋆ Chaturbate Affiliate Program Review: How to Make $1,000+ a Month

chaturbate affiliate review
 
One EASY way to make extra money that is overlooked by a lot of models is joining Chaturbate’s Affiliate Program, which makes you money on every purchase that a member makes. You receive your custom affiliate link, which you can post on all of your social media and personal sites or blogs, and refer people to CB through it. Below are all the available affiliate programs you can choose from:

Chaturbate Affiliate Program – Revshare, PPL, Webmaster and Model Referral

Revshare – You earn a MASSIVE 20% revenue share on all traffic (i.e. members) you refer. The best thing is that this is a 20% commission FOR LIFE. You will literally earn passive income as long as the member keeps buying tokens. This is by far the most lucrative and generous camming affiliate program that is active right now. You can see my Top 5 Camming Affiliate Programs list here.

Pay-Per-Lead – Another option is a PPL. Chaturbate will pay you $1.00 for each free signup.

Model Referral – Know anyone who wants to join Chaturbate? You will earn $50 for each model you refer that earns $20 or more camming!

Webmaster Referral – This program pays you 5% revshare on referring webmasters. So, anyone who joins though your link to promote CB is considered a webmaster, and you’ll be able to earn 5% of THEIR earnings for life. Pretty incredible deal.

Important thing to note! You don’t have to be a Chaturbate model to join and participate in the program. ANYONE can join and earn money referring traffic to Chaturbate!

Great! You’ve joined, and now what? Once you reach a certain commission threshold, you can cash out via several methods outlined below:

Chaturbate Payout Schedule and Payment Types

Chaturbate pays affiliates twice a month. 

  • Check by mail has a minimum payment of $50
  • Paxum has a minimum payment of $100
  • Check by Fedex has a minimum payment of $200
  • Wire payments have a minimum payment of $1,000

Chaturbate makes it really easy to promote certain models or chat rooms. Once you sign up, it provides you linkcodes to a variety of different chatrooms. For example: Home Page, Females only, or Males only, or Couples. You can link to specific model’s chat room (or even your own if you’re a model!) or let Chaturbate randomly choose a popular room to link to.

Why Join Chaturbate Affiliate Program?

Because of the ease of joining, no complicated requirements to join, and the ease of making money, I rank Chaturbate’s affiliate program as the top one in the adult industry. With time, you can 100% make $1,000 a month and more from it, quite passively too. Because your affiliate links never expire or need updating, you can make money in your sleep by choosing the right place to promote them. As a result, it’s an incredible passive income opportunity for models and members (or even non-members!) alike.
