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.

⋆ How to Become a Webcam Model – Beginner Camgirl Advice

camming beginner how to advice

“How do you become a cam model? Do you need any special equipment or have a certain look for it to work? How easy is it to get started and make that first paycheck?”

I had ALL of these questions when I was starting out camming years ago and this is what I’ve learned. Above all, if you’ve done your research, you’re already further ahead than an average camgirl, so read on!

MAKE SURE YOU:

 

  • Pick the Right Site! There is a wide variety of camsites: some older and more established, some new ones just starting up, and they all feel and work differently. My recommendations are joining Chaturbate and Myfreecams. Chaturbate is the more “sexual” of the two and also allows men and couples to stream. They both have a 50%+ payout percentage and high traffic (Chaturbate more so than MFC). Check out this post for a full list of camsites to join!
  • Have the Right Tools Ready! Being prepared ahead of time is key. Using your built-in webcam to stream is unfortunately not good enough. You need a good quality external webcam like a Logitech C920, which is my personal fave and is used by the majority of camgirls. Check out my post about the Top 3 webcams for camming for other great options. In terms of other tools, having great lighting is such a big part of the equation in looking good on cam, and looking your best will give you the best chance in tippers finding your room. You can see some of my lighting recommendation in this post. As well as having a webcam and a few umbrella lights, make sure your laptop can handle streaming and won’t die on you at the most inopportune moment. Make sure your internet connection is good as well!
  • Consider your Boundaries. Camming is a risky job. You WILL be recorded and uploaded to various sites, including porn sites, and this increases your risk of being seen by your co-worker, neighbor, old highschool friend. The way to minimize the risk is to minimize your exposure, so make sure you block your location on the site. A service like CamModelProtection can help you remove your recorded content that makes its way online. Another consideration is how comfortable are you in your sexuality and can you be on a site doing sexual things? You don’t have to be a sex kitten, but you need to feel ok about being watched naked, masturbating, etc. A lot of girls love the thrill!

 

BENEFITS OF CAMMING

  • Setting your own schedule
  • No one there to tell you what to do
  • Can easily ban anyone who is rude or demanding toward you
  • Potential to make A LOT of money very quickly
  • Being spoiled with gifts

 

becoming camgirl advice tips

 

Ok, so how do you REALLY become a full-fledged camgirl? What are the exact steps you should take?

No need to be anxious about trying out camming (a lot of guys actually really like a new, inexperienced girl!). Go through the steps below:

Step 1:

Sign up as a Model: Pick a site you’d like to try out (or 2! Nothing wrong with having options, and you get a chance to see what you like on each site). You’ll be asked to fill out your personal details and upload a photo ID to show that you are at least 18 years old. Approval time varies between sites, but you should get a notification in a day or two.

Step 2:

best webcam for camming advice

While you wait, make sure you’ve got some equipment ready that I’ve mentioned – an external webcam (I recommend Logitech C920), a set of umbrella lights (like the Limo Studio Umbrella Lights) and if you’d like – some cute lingerie and maybe a new toy or two. Pinkcherry is a great place to get all those! Beyond that, you just need to bring your personality and a lot of patience. 🙂

Speaking of patience, you’re going to need to give yourself time to succeed on a site. Don’t think that just because you see top models making hundreds of dollars an hour that you will get there overnight. You need months and months of consistent camming to build up an audience and ‘regulars’, guys who will tune in to watch you every time you’re on. Consistency is key! This is one of the biggest pieces of advice I can give an aspiring cam model. Of course, a bit of luck is important too. Just because you have the looks, the personality and the work ethic, you will not automatically have success, but it you’ve done your research and have all the things ready before broadcasting you give yourself the best chance of success!

 

Step 3:

Once you get approved, this is a good time to create a Twitter and an Amazon wishlist, and add some graphics to your model profile. While Twitter and wishlist are not required, promoting yourself on social media is so important to get yourself new tippers, unless of course, you prefer to keep things on the down-low, in which case you can do a protected twitter. Some girls even keep a tumblr and other blogs. It’s all up to you, so do what feels right. A word of warning: Make sure you don’t put your real address on your Amazon wishlist and either use a PO box or don’t add it at all. Your profile doesn’t need to be complicated – add some information about yourself and put up some eye-catching pics.

 

Step 4:

how to become a camgirl advice tips

You’re ready to broadcast!I know it can be nerve-wracking to press that Broadcast button for the first time, but you gotta jump in and experience it. Remember, you’re in control, and you can sign out at any point, for any reason. If anyone is making you uncomfortable or is being rude or demanding, don’t be afraid to ban them. Put on whatever will make you most comfortable, apply some nice makeup, if you wear it, and click that button! There is going to be a lot of learning going on in the first few months, and you’ll probably make a lot of mistakes, which all of us do, but practice makes perfect! When you’re on cam, my biggest tip is to smile! Yes, it’s so simple, but a lot of new girls don’t realize how unapproachable they look without a smile.

To get some conversation going, you can ask guys some small-talk general questions, or say something interesting about yourself and someone will jump into the conversation. Set your “room topic” to some sort of token countdown. For example, “Top off in 555! 50=Flash, 100=Fansign, 30=Spanks”.  You are giving guys something to tip for and get them interacting. A dance and some teasing is a good way to get people in the room, I find. It’s a good idea to watch other models to see what they put in their topics and what kinds of countdowns work.

 

Step 5:

First cam shift is over! Pat yourself on the back. Now you can start thinking about what you may do the next time you’re on. It’s a good idea to offer tipping incentives for guys to tip offline, because it can boost your camscore on a site like MFC, and of course makes you more money. A very popular option these days is offering a Snapchat or an OnlyFans subscription on a monthly basis. If you can commit to sending out pics every day/a few times a week, it’s a good option. Another option is to make photosets and videos. I recommend setting up an account on Manyvids to sell them there. This is a great option to make that passive income! You can also do a raffle, which are really popular on MFC, and they can be for anything – a custom video, a Skype, homemade cookies shipped directly to the winner! (Be careful about not giving away your real address when doing this).

So, these are the basics to becoming a camgirl. Through trial and error you’ll know what works for you and what doesn’t, because everyone is different and there is room for all. 🙂 Good luck!
