How to Generate Passive Income by Selling your Videos and Photos Online

sell cam videos
 
Offering videos and photo sets to your members is one of the easiest ways to increase your camming income while not having to be online. Some days you’re just not in the mood to be entertaining, so shooting videos or photos is a great way to still feel productive and make that extra cash! Best of all, since you can resell them indefinitely, you’ve just created a passive income stream once your videos or photos are done. Win-win!

 

Do I need to have professional shooting equipment for my videos to be successful?

No. Anyone can do it. However, you cannot rely on a cheap webcam to shoot your videos and for them to turn out well. It simply won’t create nice quality videos, and you’ll be shooting yourself in the foot (pun intended) having to work with equipment that won’t give you best results. More on that at the end of the post.

 

Do I need to have any special video editing software for my videos to look good?

Yes and no. While it’s ok to use a free video editing software that you have installed on your laptop, like a Windows Movie Maker, a lot of girls have invested in video editing software to really make their videos stand out and be high quality. Sony Movie Studio and Adobe Premiere are the most popular video editing programs used by both newbies and professional video editors. It takes a little bit to learn, but the results are worth it!

 

Where can I sell the videos and photos I make?

You can sell them on you model profile and offer them for sale when you’re online. A great way to REALLY maximize your profits is to sell your videos and photosets on camgirl video sites. The #1 site right now to do so on is ManyVids! Even though it’s fairly new, it’s grown to have a huge audience and thousands of girls have created their profiles on there already. The bigger the audience or traffic a site gets, the better the odds are of your videos selling. Manyvids is highly recommended by me. You can also sell panties, Skype shows, and Snapchat and other items in your “store”. You get paid twice a month and earn 60% of the revenue from the sales of your videos, which is a great payout percentage.

Can I sell my videos “full-time”?

Yes! In fact, there are a lot of girls who do just that. How much you make depends on the amount of videos you’re putting out a week, how well they’re shot, and how much promotion you’re doing. It is definitely possible and is a great way to earn an income while not doing live camming. Camming does have its benefits, but it’s not for everyone and some people don’t have the flexibility in their schedule or time for it. ManyVids says that its top earners make between $10,000 and $12,000 a month!

 

Ok, how do I begin?!

Sign up for a ManyVids account, upload any videos or photos you may already have. If you don’t have any, here’s what you need to start with:

 

1 ) A High Quality Webcam – Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 (See my post on the Best Webcams to Get)

OR A DSLR camera – Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR Digital Camera

Best Makeup for Camming

camming makeup tips

 

Looking your best translates to feeling your best on cam, and your viewers will pick up on your confident vibe resulting in more tips! Yes, sometimes the ‘I just rolled out of bed’ look works, but for a lot of us, we need some help by way of makeup!

Bright lights and moving around for hours can wreak havoc on your makeup making it literally slide off the face. You need something long-lasting ad with a fuller coverage, as you’ll notice that lights can wash you out making you look dull and not as fresh. Here are the camgirl tried-and-tested makeup products for looking your best on cam.

 

PRIMER

To make your makeup stay put all day, the first step is to use a primer. It really does give you a great base for the rest of your makeup. Some fantastic primers are silicone-based that feel like heaven on your skin, and there are others that are more mattifying or, on the other hand, give more moisture and glow. I would suggest going for a natural to mattifying effect, because you don’t want to look like a shining ball of light on cam. I recommend the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer and the MAKE UP FOR EVER Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer.

FOUNDATION

Your foundation choice will depend on how much coverage you need. For those of us not born with perfect skin, going for a medium to full coverage is recommended, so that you look truly flawless on cam. My absolute go-to foundation is the MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation. It has buildable coverage that will cover all your flaws, from acne to scars, because it is specifically formulated to look best on HD television and in front of cameras and I can attest to the fact that it looks the most natural out of all foundations I’ve tried.

If you need fuller coverage because of hard-to-cover marks or acne, the best foundation to conceal it ALL is the Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation. It is truly heavy duty and can cover up tattoos with no problem and will give you a perfectly even look on cam! While I think it can look too ‘flat’ and too full coverage for everyday life, on cam it will look just fine.

If you don’t have any skin problems, you can get away with pretty much any foundation as long as it’s not too dewy or shimmery, as that effect can get magnified on cam and make your face look oily.

 

CONCEALER

Once you’ve got your base, it’s time to conceal any imperfections like dark undereye circles or pimples. I recommend going for a heavy duty concealer, one that will stay on your face and not disappear or start to crease within a few hours. I recommend the MAKE UP FOR EVER Full Cover Concealer, and as its name suggests, it will cover *everything* and you won’t have to worry about any flaws being visible on cam. You can also use it on your body to cover up any scarring, bruising or pimples (sometimes they crop up in the worst places!). Another great choice is the Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer. It stays 100% true to its name and is amazing at covering up any skin issues and looking very natural. You only need the tiniest amount of product to use, as it’s very highly pigmented.

HIGHLIGHTER, BRONZER, and BLUSH

To give your face dimension and get that flawless look, you need to do some contouring – a little highlighter, bronzer and blush will do the trick. Define your cheekbones with a bronzer and give your cheeks, forehead and chin a rosy glow with a blush. I recommend the NARS Laguna/Orgasm Duo, which is two of these products in one and is an iconic classic. Don’t be shy with your blush application, because even though it might look like you’re putting on way too much, it won’t show up as strongly on cam. Sweep some highlighter on your cheekbones, but don’t go too heavy, as the camera will pick up too much of the shine and make you look too shiny versus dewy and natural. I recommend the beautiful Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop for that perfect glow.

EYESHADOWS, EYELINERS, and MASCARA

Go for some bright and eye-catching colors when choosing your eyeshadows to accentuate your eyes and make you look more pretty and fresh overall. Don’t forget an eyeshadow primer to ensure the shadow stays put even after hours of camming. I recommend the Urban Decay Primer Potion, as it really locks in the color and will make your eyeshadow that much more longlasting.

Eyeliner is key to that cat eye look and will make you feel that much sexier. Go for waterproof liquid types versus pencils, like the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner, and finish off with a black mascara to really visually open up your eyes. I love the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara.

EYEBROWS AND FALSE LASHES

Eyebrows, while not that important to be meticulously done, do give you a much more polished look and bring out your eyes. Go for the classic Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade and lock it in place with the Benefit Gimme Brow Gel. One optional, but striking, finishing touch is to put on some false eyelashes. If you don’t have long black lashes naturally, you can fix it with some falsies that will give incredible length and volume to your lashes and make you look gorgeous. They’re reusable and not too pricey!

LIPSTICKS

Liquid lipsticks rule for camming due to their long lasting nature. Drinking, eating, or.. ahem.. doing a bj show won’t leave marks or flake off. My all-time favorites are the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick and the Lime Crime Velvetines. They all come in some beautiful shades, ranging from nude, mauve, to red, that looks fantastic and sexy on anyone’s lips.

POWDER AND FINISHING SPRAY

Dusting on some powder is the final step in the makeup application and is so crucial for camming, as it will lock all your makeup in place, reduce shine and make it last so much longer than it would otherwise. I notice that you appear more oily on camera than in real life, so the webcam picks up on any sheen you have on your face and looking oily is not a good look. I recommend the Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder. To make your makeup completely bulletproof, Urban Decay has just the tool, the All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray. Spray it on and your makeup will last through your longest cam session, even a camathon!

3 Best Laptops for Camming – Top Laptops Reviewed

best laptop for camming advice

Having a quality laptop is one of the best tools a camgirl can have. It’s better to invest from the start (or to upgrade a slow and lagging laptop) than having to deal with a constantly breaking or inefficient one. Remember, time is money, and if you have to take your laptop in for repairs, that is wasted time that you’ll never get back.

What should you look for in a laptop you’ll use for camming?

 

  • RAM: 8 GB and above. Stands for random-access memory and it’s what will keep your laptop running smoothly when you have lots of tabs open, music streaming, and cam broadcasting at the same time.
  • Hard Drive: 1TB or more. That’s where all your files are stored. A large enough hard drive lets you save thousands of HD photos, videos you make, songs and movies on your laptop. For reference, a 500GB hard drive (half of 1 TB) lets you hold up to 140,000 pictures, 130,000 songs, or 400 movies. So, if you’re planning on storing a lot of cam-related pics and videos (and they tend to be quite big in size!), go for a 1TB hard drive.
  • Size and Weight. This is up to you, but a laptop with a display size of 13″ to 15″ is more portable and easier to move around the house when you cam from different location and also take with you when you travel. Weight is a similar issue, anything under 5 lbs will be more portable.
  • Processor: Intel Core i7  is the way to go. If you ever feel like your current laptop is “too slow”, then you need to upgrade to Intel Core i7 processor.

 

You may have noticed that I haven’t mentioned built-in webcams, and that is because you cannot rely on your laptop’s webcam for camming. The quality will NEVER be as good as an external webcam, such as a Logitech C920, which is, in my opinion, the best webcam for cam models.

So, with all these things in mind, here are my Top 3 laptop picks that look good, are portable AND powerful. Click on the links to check them out on Amazon!

ASUS X555DA-AS11 15 inch Full-HD AMD Quad Core Laptop with Windows 10, Black & Silver

So, there you have it, some great choices for a camming laptop. If you ever want to go hardcore and splurge, I would suggest looking for a powerful gaming laptop, because they’re made to handle a lot and will never lag. Alienware, anyone? It’s a beast of a machine. 😉

Hitachi Magic Wand – Camgirl’s Best Friend?

camming hitachi magic wand

 

If you have money to spend on only ONE vibrator, ever – make it the Hitachi Magic Wand. It’s been called the “Cadillac of vibrators” due to its strength, performance, and orgasm-power. It has a cord and a powerful motor (which makes it pretty loud – its only downside), but it puts all other cordless and battery-operated vibrators to shame. It’s become an icon in the sex toy world and its plain white look is so easily recognizable. I’m sure you’ve seen tons of girls use them for cam shows… with great results. 😉

A little while ago, it went through a rebranding and is now called the “Original Magic Wand” with the Hitachi name now absent from the newer packaging; it’s also now sold by Vibratex. So, with many fakes on the market, look for Vibratex listed as the manufacturer. For example, this particular magic wand is the real deal:

Despite the name change, many girls still call it “The Hitachi” for short, no matter how much Hitachi wanted to separate itself from the product. I personally don’t care what they call it, as long as they keep making it! It is a truly irreplaceable camgirl (and everyday-girl) toy.

The Magic Wand has 2 speeds – “normal” and “OMG orgasm”, but if you want to be able to control it, you can by getting the speed controller version, which is really handy if you’re more sensitive or want to be able to vary the speed. Here is one sold on Amazon:

The original magic wand doesn’t come with any attachments, but if you’re someone who likes to experiment and likes insertable vibrators, there are attachments you can buy that fit right on top and take the “Hitachi Experience” to the next level! Warning: This is not for beginners! The vibrations are strong enough as it is without any insertable parts, and many girls can’t even handle having their bare skin touched with the wand, so it greatly depends on your sensitivity and experience level.

This is the most popular kit for the Hitachi – with the blue straight and curved G-spot attachments:

If you’re looking to buy that special toy for yourself, or if you’re reading this and deciding what to get your favorite camgirl, you definitely can’t go wrong with the Magic Wand!

best webcam for cammingbest webcam for camming

One of the most important tools a camgirl can have is a quality webcam. There are other things to think about when diving into the [clink id=”15″]world of camming[/clink], but presenting the best image of *you* is of UTMOST importance!

There is a new webcam on the market and it’s a beauty. It streams and records in 60 frames per second giving you incredibly clear and sharp video quality!

It is an upgrade from Logitech 920, which has been the gold standard for camgirls for many years. Logitech 922x has some awesome new features and I recommend it for models who are serious about their camming career.
