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

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.

Benefits of Camming: Is It Worth It?

So, you want to be a webcam model or are still on the fence about it – Let’s look at some of the things that make being a camgirl GREAT and some that may make you reconsider!

Benefits of Camming 

🤑

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 money in 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.

⋆ Highest Paying Camsites of 2019

highest paying camsites
 
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 2019, and I recommend you go through the list, try them out, and see which ones feel best to you.

⋆ 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.
 
how much money webcam models earn
 
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.
