Best Passive Income Sources for Camgirls: How to Maximize your Camming Earnings!

passive income camming

What is Passive Income?

Passive income (Income resulting from cash flow received on a regular basis requiring minimal to no effort to maintain it) is something that many dream of. By contrast, “active” income takes consistent work, so live camming earnings is one example of active income. Being self-employed and making your own hours does afford you a lot of freedom to spend that time however you wish, so it’s best to spend it on things that will make you money long after the job is done. Clip-making/selling photos and videos and creating blogs require some upfront investment (your time), but then they can make you money indefinitely, literally in your sleep! If you want to expand your income opportunities and not have to rely 100% on your camming earnings, read on!


Top 3 Passive Income Ideas for Camgirls

 

Selling Your Photos and Videos

Arguably the BEST way to make passive income as a camgirl is to shoot videos and photos to later resell them on sites like ManyVids. You can also sell the same videos on Chaturbate or MFC for tokens or even create your personal site to make them available to even more people. The best thing is that you don’t need much equipment to get started. A webcam or a simple camcorder will work for videos and you can buy a basic DSLR camera to shoot professional-looking photos. Check out my post on how to get started making videos!

 

Posting Pics and Videos on OnlyFans

While it’s not completely passive, OnlyFans is a great platform to very easily make money with your sexy (or sensual!) pics and videos and do so without the hassle of trying to get members to pay and renew their subscription on time – that is done for you on OF. It also allows members to send you tips, and THAT’s where the passive component comes in. It’s great waking up to a tip or two. 😉 Read my OnlyFans Beginners Tutorial here.

 

Camming Affiliate Programs

Last, but definitely not least, is making commissions from camming affiliates. It’s an underrated way to make great money, but if you do it right, it will create *absolutely* passive, long-term income without you having to lift a finger. You can so this by creating a camming-related blog (Read my post about it here) OR promoting your affiliate program of choice online on platforms like Twitter, Instagram or Reddit. Get creative! Make sure you’re following their terms and conditions before you begin, however, since you can be banned for posting adult-related content.

  • The first thing to do is to sign up to the various camming programs that you want to promote as a Webmaster/Affiliate.

The best-performing programs are those that pay you via “Revenue Sharing”, which means that they pay you a commission % of the revenue that you bring in through your link. Chaturbate and MFC have the highest RevShare commissions (20%!) and are the easiest to get started on, in my opinion. Click on the links to sign up:

How do you know when it’s time to quit camming?

camgirl

We’ve all had our bad days on cam (and weeks, and even months), but how do you know when to throw in the towel? When things are not going well on cam money-wise, do you try harder or do you quit?

I think that you have two options when things are not going well and you become disheartened, frustrated, and upset.

Option 1: Change Something!

You either try CHANGE UP your approach to camming, sign up to another cam site, or subscription site, or do another major change such as those.

The fact is, if you’ve been doing the same thing and it hasn’t been working, it’s unlikely it will. (Unless you get lucky, and a high tipper notices you and showers you in tokens). You have to look at what you’ve been doing on cam and see if there are areas that are majorly lacking. A simple fix may be in order, such as updating your equipment (webcam, laptop, lights – more important to looking good on cam than you’d think!), as well as your cam room. If you’ve got all the right tools, but still can’t seem to make money on cam, it might be that the site you’re on is not suited best for your needs. If you’re shy and prefer to be a non-mode cammodel (a “tease” model), then a site like Chaturbate might not work for you, because there is an emphasis on pretty sexual private and public shows.

You might benefit from a site like Myfreecams OR a subscription site like OnlyFans where you’re not required to be overly sexual. In fact, many camgirls have moved to OnlyFans, AVN Stars, etc, because of the flexibility these sites offer, and the fact that you don’t need to come up with complicated show ideas and spend hours of your time on cam. It’s worth trying them out if you feel burnt out on cam and are not getting enough interaction from tippers. A lot of girls make on OF much more money than the ever did as camgirls!

However, if you actually enjoy the live interaction of camming, it might be that you need to look into other cam sites. See my list of best ones here. Try to assess what may be going on with your approach to camming. Maybe you’re not being quite yourself and the viewers are picking up on that, or maybe you need to create a character or persona that you will be on cam, and that is what will make it fun for you.

Viewers can see when you’re genuinely enjoying yourself and when you’re not, and that you’re just going through the motions. If you’re unhappy, feeling negative, or frustrated, you might lash out at people and drive them away even more. Members tend to come to cam sites for entertainment and lightheartedness, a place to get away from their problems and the daily grind. If it seems like you cannot do it, and being on cam is a drag leaving you more and more dissatisfied and frustrated, maybe it’s time to look into Option 2.

Option 2: Quit Camming

So, you tried your hand at camming and you’ve tried OnlyFans or a similar fanclub platform, and things have not gone well. You are not alone. Most camgirls will quit within the first month of camming, so if you’ve stuck it out for more than a month – good job! You gave it a fair try, and it may be that adult industry is not for you, and that you prefer to interact person-to-person, or want to use one of your other skills and talents. Remember, even if you “make it” as a camgirl, the career in the adult industry is quite short-lived, so you’ll either need to save most of your earnings, or look for a way to branch out and leave for another opportunity. (See my post on it here).

There is no shame in quitting, and it’s better to quit than to continue sticking it out and hurting yourself in the process. You might start feeling isolated and depressed and use drugs/alcohol to deal with the painful experiences on cam. Don’t exploit yourself just so you can get some “easy money”, because this money is definitely not easy and can really crush your self-esteem and self-confidence. It’s better to find a lower-paying, but a stable “vanilla” job that you can count on, versus a high risk-high reward one that might never pan out.

Whatever you decide to do, make sure you’re not hurting yourself in the process and that you’re being as true to yourself as possible. Good luck!

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 Make Money Fast: Beginner Camgirl Edition

Let’s say that you need to make a few hundred dollars NOW (or soon) – how do you go about it and what is the quickest way to do it? We are assuming that you have no prior camming experience.


Here is my personal plan of how to do it:

Join 2 (or more) cam sites at the same time. I would recommend not overextending yourself by joining too many at once, but 2 sites would be perfect, so that you can flip back between the two. It will take a few days to get approved, as you need to provide ID for verification, but once you do, you’re all set.

Look through my List of the Top Cam Sites here.

 

Cam Site #1: MyFreeCams.

 

MFC is more geared toward “hangout” atmosphere and doesn’t focus AS much on cam shows. This is a great site to start up on, to get yourself more comfortable with nudity and what it feels like to stream. You will be given a “New Model” label, which will get you more exposure on the site and an opportunity for more tips. Members love new models, but be aware that some do try to take advantage of the inexperience of new girls. Read by beginners post on how to get started on MFC – I would recommend streaming for a few hours at a time to see how well it goes.

 

Cam Site #2: Chaturbate

best camsite chaturbate

Having some experience on MFC will make you more comfortable to stream on Chaturbate, which operates a similar way with private and public shows, but is more sexual than MFC. Generally, the more nudity/sexuality you have on cam, the more viewers you get, and the higher you show up on the list of models. If you’re not comfortable yet with a full-blown cam show, you can do a striptease for tokens and do sexy dances or spanks. Check out my post on how to get started on CB!

If you stream twice in the same day, you should easily make your first $100. Being a new model on MFC will give you an automatic boost, and CB will expose you to more tippers, as it has the largest traffic out of all cam sites.


What else should you do to take that money FAST?

A lot of members love videos, and will often ask for them. If you don’t have any prerecorded videos (which you can do while you wait for your verification/approval), you can still sell them on cam and record them within the week. In my experience, members don’t expect professional quality from videos, in fact, the amateur angle is what is more attractive. You can check out my post about making vids here

Once you have a video or two, or some pics, it’s a really good idea to join ManyVids to sell them! It’s the #1 video selling platform. This way you get even more exposure from more members. 

At this time, join Twitter, where you can promote your videos and the times you’re on cam.


Alternate Way:

What if you don’t want to be going on cam and interacting with members in real time and doing privates, but still want to make money? A GREAT new option is OnlyFans – it’s like an adult-based version of Snapchat. Members sign up to see your photos and short videos and you get money off of their memberships and any extra tips they send! This is becoming a very popular option for camgirls to make extra money on top of camming, or even replace camming completely! You can definitely make a few thousand $ a month on OnlyFans once you accumulate a large enough membership base.
