Myfreecamsremains a highly popular cam site, and for good reason: the girls are hot and the tips are plenty.
The previous biggest MFC tip holder was RocknRose back in 2018, and no one had come close to that tip since then. That is, until April 30, 2022 when joebigmouth tipped Boner_Fairy a MIND-BLOWING 1,751,111 token tip that secured her #1 spot on the Miss MFC charts. If you’re curious, and who wouldn’t be, this tip comes out to an ASTOUNDING $87,555.55 USD. This is just one of the many huge tips she received that night and throughout the month. You can only imagine how much money she made in that month, considering her top tip is more than most people earn in a year! Good on her and her generous tippers! Boner_Fairy is certainly one to watch for over the next few months! 🔥
What are the highest paying cam sites around? Since one of the biggest considerations in picking a camming site is how much they pay or what the payout percentage is, it is important that you know your options and pick the site best for you. It isn’t not the only element that makes a camsite “the best” or the most popular, but it certainly provides a big advantage. It is a huge perk to keep MORE of the money you are tipped by members, and not have the camsite itself take a sizable chunk.
These are my picks for the Top 5 Highest-Paying Webcam Sites as of 2021, and I recommend you go through the list, try them out, and see which ones feel best to you.
You may have noticed that two of the most popular sites on the net are not present on the list – Myfreecamsand Chaturbate. That is because their payout percentages are slightly lower, however, their traffic (and therefore your income potential) is higher. To see the full list of Top Sites (both camming and clip sites as well), head over here!
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:
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.
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.
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 memberslove 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 joinManyVidsto 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.
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.
So, these are my tips on making money the fastest way you can as a camgirl. Any questions or personal tips? For a more in-depth camming tutorial, please see my Beginners Guide post. 🙂
Money – This one is easy, and it immediately comes to mind when you think of camming. The money can definitely be GREAT. So great in fact, that you can be out-earning the doctors and lawyers in your city (Check out my post about the highest tips on Myfreecams here). While it’s hard to say how much exactly you will earn, this post has some good approximations.
Freedom (of time, setting your own hours, not having a boss) – This is one of the biggest advantages of camming. You can quit your day job, say goodbye to your boss and not work a minute more for someone else. It is certainly alluring, especially if you’re making more moneyin a few days than you used to make all month at your old job, and with it comes a sense of empowerment. It’s a beautiful feeling knowing that you’re earned this type of money yourself and that you have the flexibility to work when you wish.
Sexual Expression – For some, this is one of the most beneficial aspects of camming: Being able to explore and express your sexuality in a way that’s very safe AND that earns you money is very alluring and liberating. You can do what you please and what you’ve always wanted to try out and there is no stigma – quite the opposite, usually!
💸Gifts and Attention – Being a camgirl with multiple fans definitely has its perks. At a “vanilla job” (aka the regular, 9-5 job), there is no way you’d be getting lavish gifts, extra money, gift cards sent to you, but all of that is standard in camming. It’s really thrilling to get your first “just because” tip or a gift card to get those clothes or shoes you wanted. Sometimes it feels like all you have to do is ask, and one of your members will be right there to buy it for you.
Work options that are not available to you otherwise, be it due to a disability or life circumstances. The great thing about being a camgirl is that you can work as much or as little as you want/can, and no one will tell you how to do your job. If you can’t handle a full-time job – camming is perfect. If you have mental health issues (common in the industry), physical issues or a disability, camming creates a way for you to work fewer hours and still make great wage, and most importantly, to do it on your own terms.
Ability to create the life that you want. To sum up, being such a non-traditional job, camming can create so many opportunities for having the life you truly want. You can make a ton of money in your 20s, invest wisely, and then follow your dreams, be it starting your business, owning a farm, or just being a stay-at-home mom. It’s possible with camming due to its massive earning potential.
Downsides of Camming
Very short career timeline/Limiting your future options – Sure, you can be earning the big bucks if you’re lucky, but what happens once you start aging, or your life priorities change? Unfortunately, I believe that a lot of cam models will be stuck in this situation, with a big blank in their resume and no way of getting a well-paying job beyond adult work. It definitely can limit your options in the future, if you decide to leave the industry.
No benefits or paid time off – Say what you will about having a corporate job, but at least it does (usually) provide you with some medical/dental benefits, and a paid time off for any emergencies or just mental health days, in addition to vacation time. As a camgirl, you don’t have that luxury, so you need to plan your vacation around camming, and get used to not getting paid whenever you get sick and can’t be online. You are also on your own when it comes to taking care of your medical expenses.
Stigma – The adult work’s stigma, though lessening, is not going away. Most camgirls have to lie to their family and friends about where they work, and that can be a big emotional burden to carry.
Isolation – Isolation and lack of healthy social interaction is a very real problem for camgirl, because you get so wrapped up in the “Cam World” that you can kind of lose yourself. I made a post about the loneliness and isolation that comes with camming here.
Scams and Harassment – Unfortunately, scams, harassment, and even stalking in some cases, are common in the camming industry. It’s very likely that you’ll encounter some of them as a cam model. It does come with the territory, as there are members who think it’s okay to harass, intimidate, or even try to blackmail camgirls. It’s pretty disgusting behavior, and there is little you can do while it’s happening, but you CAN protect yourself ahead of time – read my post about it here.
So, despite all the negative elements, many camgirls LOVE their job and feel that it’s the best thing that has ever happened to them. I tend to agree – if you can be smart about minimizing your risks, and being realistic about your earning potential – you can absolutely have a great career in camming and enjoy its benefits for years to come.
