Similar to OnlyFans, you make money from members subscribing to your AVN Stars profile where you can post stories, videos, photos, clips, and even go LIVE! Best of all, your subscribers can send you tips even if you’re offline. I think you’d agree that making money in your sleep is the best way to make $$$. 😉
Payout is on-demand, as soon as you reach the minimum cashout of $25! Payments are made through either ACH/direct deposit or Paxum.
Although it might be tempting to set your monthly price as high as possible (OnlyFans’ current limit is $49.99/month), my advice is to balance that with what your fans would reasonably afford to pay. You’ll get more followers at a lower price (say, $9.99 or 14.99) and they’ll be more willing to pay for the Pay-Per-View messages and will end up spending ore on you overall. At the same time, don’t shortchange yourself and don’t set your subscription price too low where you might get people expecting too much for too little. It’s all about balance and also knowing your audience! If you’re into Findom, you may very well be able to set a high monthly price.
2. Promote your OnlyFans link online + Advertise your content!
Get creative with this! Definitely promote on Twitter and Instagram, if you’ve got it, as well as promoting your link during your cam shows, if you stream online. You can also share your link on TikTok, Reddit, or your official website/blog. The more places you can showcase your OF link – the better! Of course, don’t go completely overboard and spam viewers with it. Having your link in your twitter bio or even your Twitter name is a great promotion idea. Additionally, make sure your followers know what kind of content they’re signing up for by posting short clips, pics, and polls on your social media.
3. Talk to your fans
The road to a successful camming career and beyond is consistency and communication, so don’t neglect this crucial part! Make a posting schedule and try to stick to it, as well as reply to comments and DMs, which will lead to greater loyalty and subscription renewals. There’s nothing worse than losing subscribers because you simply didn’t post enough content. It might be a good idea to shoot some videos and photo sets in advance, so that you can slowly release them over the course of the month.
4. Try Tiered PPVs (Pay-Per-View Messages)
PPVs are a great way to create stronger connections and make members feel like they’re getting something really exclusive and special to them. You can set different prices (say, $1-3, or $10+) for their messages to unlock. Messages can be anything – photos, videos, or text posts! You can really use your imagination here and create some special photosets, videos or a sexy chat that would make members want to see it. This is a great way of making extra money on OnlyFans!
5. Get to know your audience
You can use your intuition or see what other camgirls are posting, but a really useful way to really find out what YOUR fans want is by making polls! Knowing your audience is the KEY to a successful OnlyFans account! You can figure out what kind of content members want to see next and track which of your posts were successful with the help of the analytics features on OnlyFans. For your PPVs, you can track how many messages have been opened, read, and which prices were the most profitable, so you can learn and make more informed decisions for your future posts.
6. Do promotional campaigns throughout the year
Sales are a great way to draw new people in or engage your current followers by making them feel they’re getting a bargain. Everyone loves a bargain, and promotions create excitement for members. There is always an excuse to do a promotional campaign, be it Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s day, your birthday – whatever you can think of!
7. Consider making your account free – At least for a while!
An alternate strategy to consider is making your OnlyFans account free! This can allow for a higher following as subscribers don’t have to commit to paying a monthly subscription fee. Free accounts can use the pay-per-view post feature, which allows you to monetise individual posts, in addition to pay-per-view messages and tips. Although you don’t have the predictability of subscription income, this strategy can be lucrative and lead to wider brand recognition.

OnlyFansis becoming a VERY lucrative way of making passive income for camgirls without ever having to do live camming! Girls are reporting that they are making $1,000+ a week simply by uploading pics, streaming videos, and messaging their fans. It’s like a Snapchat and a fanclub platform in one! How much you can make on OnlyFansdepends on how many members sign up to your account and pay your monthly subscription price.
As an example: To get to the Top 1% earners on OnlyFans you need approximately 725 fans with a subscription price of $9.99!
So, how do you start? It’s easy and almost instant! Just follow the steps below:
1. CREATE YOUR ONLYFANS ACCOUNT
It’s 100% free to create an account and it can be done in minutes! OnlyFans doesn’t require you to sign any contract and you will receive 80% of all the money that your subscribers pay for your content! That is an incredible earning percentage! OnlyFans provides a very high quality platform that is constantly improving and adding new functions to make you earn even more. Combined with great customer service and a straightforward user interface, it’s an unbeatable way to make semi-passive income as a camgirl!
What makes OnlyFansso lucrative is the combination of your subscriber numbers and your subscription rate. You decide what you want to charge members to see your content. It can range from Free to $49.99/month. Imagine how much you can earn with having your subscription on the high end of the range! However, most girls charge about $9.99/month and it seems most customers/fans prefer prices in this range. You have to be realistic about it and make the membership price affordable. You can still make a lot of money for setting a ‘low’ subscription price amount and therefore attracting many more subscribers.
3. PROMOTE YOUR ONLYFANS PROFILE
Now that you have your account, it’s time to figure out what to post on it and how to promote it! Posting is easy – sexy pics and videos that you post *consistently* that also seem personal is what will make your members stick around and maybe even tip you extra!
The most effective way to promote your OnlyFansaccount is on your existing social media platforms (Twitter, Instagram, etc) as well as on a personal blog, if you have one. You can also promote it on cam, but be careful, some sites do not allow outside promotion. The more your promote – the more subscribers you’ll get, and will be well on your way to earning a 4-figure income each month. Many camgirls have even quit live camming in favor of OnlyFans because of how much easier it is to make money!
4. RETAINING YOUR FANS & MAKING EVEN MORE MONEY
Ultimately, fans want your content, so give your fans what they want! Personal messages are key, in my opinion, because they create feelings of intimacy. You can send out free or locked messages (PPV messages) that members would pay for. Being consistent in your posting (say, a few times a day) in addition to creating a varied mix of content (eg. different photosets, videos, polls, personal posts) will keep members engaged and wanting more. Here is a post with some specific tips on how to succeed on OnlyFans! You can even succeed as a non-nude model if you have a big enough fan base built up.
5. ONLYFANS AFFILIATE PROGRAM
Don’t forget to make use of OnlyFans’ generous Referral Program. Once you create an account, you will be given you unique referral link that you can use to recruit other models to join. Once they sign up and start earning you will make 5% of their total earnings for LIFE! That’s a pretty sweet deal and is 100% passive.
“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 Chaturbateand 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
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:
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.
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 (click below!) 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!
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.
You’re ready to broadcast!I know it can be nerve-wracking to press that Broadcastbutton 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.
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!
