⋆ 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:

 

OnlyFans

⋆ 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!

What is the MV Score and How is it Calculated?

You receive a base MV Score of 750 points when you create your profile. It goes up (and so does your placement on the site) with a number of factors.

The MV Score is calculated based on these factors:

  • Dollar amount of sales *Most important factor*
  • Number of hearts on vids and profile
  • Volume of vids and store items created
  • Number of times your uploads get auto-tweeted by ManyVids (Twitter account required)
  • MV reviews (5 points will be added for each full review up to a max of 200 points)

The MV score is recalculated twice daily and is in effect for 45 days. After each 45-day period, your score is reset to the base score of 750 points, so it is important to remain active on MV to keep your MV Score high!

⋆ How to Make Extra Money with MyFreeCams’s Affiliate Program

mfc affilaite program

 

Myfreecams is one of the biggest cam sites out there and its referral program is a great way to make some extra money. While they used to have a revshare affiliate program with Crakrevenue, an adult affiliate network, they have ended their partnership.

Right now the only way to make that extra cash is by using their BAF (Bring-A-Friend) referral program, which gives you 20 tokens for every referred basic member and 200 tokens for every referred premium who signs up with your link.

 

myfreecams affiliate program

 

I’ve mentioned it before in this post, but a lot of camgirls don’t realize that they can be part of this program as a model. It’s not exclusive to members!

All you have to do is Create a Free Member Account (since model accounts cannot buy or hold tokens) and then use the referral link that you’re provided with to link to your room on Twitter! Use it in your bio and link it every time you log on. 😃 You can also use this link on forums you frequent and on any other social media. The only requirement is that you cannot post the link in your chat room on MFC and you cannot have it in your MFC profile. It needs to be linked from an external site.

Signing up takes 2 minutes and creating a referral link takes another 2, and you can have a steady stream of extra tokens coming into your member account, which you can then tip yourself with (there’s no rule against that!) or tip any other girl on the site.

How you would link your room is by adding a hashtag and your name after your unique BAF code:

http://www.myfreecams.com/?baf=xxxxxxxx#YourName

That’s it! It’s free and easy and will give you some great passive income for the times when cam is a bit slow. Click below to try it out! ⇓

Camming Security and Privacy Tips

camming privacy tips
 
Being a camgirl is a job full of privacy concerns, and being able to handle them is what will make you successful in the long-term. Read on below for some security tips to keep in mind while camming!

 

CAMMING PRIVACY TIPS

Geoblocking

Most cam sites, including Myfreecams and Chaturbate with allow you to geoblock your location,  so you can be sure that your neighbor or that high school friend won’t be watching you. You can block anything from a state or province to a whole country! Unfortunately, some people can still get around the geoblock by having VPNs that change their IPs to look like they’re located in another country, which can give them access to your room.

Camming with Another Girl Precaution

If you decide to cam with another girl from out of state or country, be mindful of her geoblocks. She may have completely different locations blocked and is very likely to have your location unblocked leaving you visible to members from your state/province. Discuss this ahead of time and make sure you are on the same page regarding what you should do. Unless she has very high tippers in your location, I would suggest she block it for your visit to protect your privacy.

Removing Content/DMCA Takedowns

To further protect your safety and to make sure your recorded cam shows are not spread on the internet and visible to everyone, using a service like CamModelProtection can help you take down the stolen content and do DMCA takedowns on your behalf, automatically. There is no need to scour the internet to look for your screencaps and stolen videos, they provide this support in their package (Check out their free trial here). Remember to never file DMCAs yourself, because the forms require your real name and contact information, and you don’t want this information to be visible to the owners of those sites.

Be Careful about the Information you Share

Sometimes it’s really easy to slip up about where you live by mentioning a particular event you will be attending that is specific to your location, or maybe a restaurant that you loved, which can be easily googleable. Even quick views from your window can give things away if a member is familiar with the area. Be mindful of any items in your house that may have your name on it, like notebooks, picture frames, or even a Starbucks cup with your name written!

Don’t Open any Suspicious Links from Members

Any unfamiliar link that is sent in your chatroom, Twitter, or to your email can lead you to download a virus to your computer. With some links members can also find out your IP address and your exact location, so don’t open anything that looks off. Be especially cautious about any link-shortening URLs, like bit.ly.

 

SOCIAL MEDIA PRIVACY TIPS

Lock Down your Twitter and/or Instagram

First things first, make your Twitter and, if you use it, Instagram private and only accept people who are regulars in your chat. This way you not only prohibit people who live in your state/province from seeing you, but you also stop any images of you from being retweeted and spread on the internet. This will decrease your exposure in a big way, but of course also make it quite hard to market yourself online.

Use a Separate Email for Camming

This is a big one. Never use your personal email to sign up with cam sites,  Amazon wishlist, or any social media accounts. Keep business and personal life separate. This will also prevent any issues with apps sharing your details with your full contact list.

Turn Off Location Information on Photos you Post Online

Be very careful about inadvertently sharing your exact location through the photos you post online. If you have an iPhone, go to to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > Camera, and then select “Never” as the option, so that your phone will not store this info. Turn off your location on any social media that you use as well, so that no one will know where you’re posting from.

 

PHYSICAL SAFETY TIPS

Don’t Show your Address on Amazon Wishlist

When you go to make your wishlist, make sure you select the setting to hide/deselect your ship-to address from anyone looking through your list. This will mean that you might have to only accept giftcards or get a PO Box in another city, but it’s a great way to protect your exact location and not have someone showing up at your door! (This situation has happened).

Sending Mail and Gifts to Members

Girls who do raffles with physical prizes, like cookies or printed photos, need to be mindful of the fact that even when you don’t put your return address on the package, your city and post office address will still be visible on the mailing label. What you can do is either mail your packages from another city or only do digital prizes, like photosets and videos.

Meeting up in Person

While some girls are ok with meeting members, especially as raffle prizes, it can be a risky thing to do. There are many stories of camgirls being stalked, and by meeting up members in real life, you just open up that possibility even further. If you do decide to meet a member in person, always make your boundaries clear ahead of time, have someone around you, or at the very least, tell someone you trust about when and where you’re going. Not to say that every member you meet will turn out to be a stalker or cross boundaries, but it’s better to be safe than sorry!

 

Hope you found these safety tips helpful!
