⋆ How Much 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.

⋆ 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.

⋆ How to Get Started on Chaturbate: Camming Advice for Beginner CB Models

how to get started on Chaturbate

 

How to Get Started on Chaturbate:

Getting started as a cam model and making money on Chaturbate is quick and easy doesn’t require much – Just a few tools like a webcam and fast internet! If you’ve got those, you’re already halfway there. Read on for more beginner advice!

Signing up is beyond easy – you just need to get age-verified with an ID and get approved, which should take about a day.

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.
