Myfreecamsis 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.
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:
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! ⇓
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
Most cam sites, including Myfreecamsand Chaturbatewith 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 CamModelProtectioncan 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!
Non-nude camgirl might seem like an oxymoron, because how can you make money without taking your clothes off or doing anything sexual on a camsite? The fact is, it is possible and can be VERY profitable if you find yourself on the right type of site and have the right approach. Here is how to make it work:
Your Choice of Cam Site is Important
Some sites are inherently better suited for non-nude camming. Before I go on, I want to split this term into two types: The Domme approach and the Girl-Next-Door approach. The “girl next door” angle works really well on Myfreecamswhere you are not necessarily expected to do a cum show or come online with a bunch of toys, contraptions and overly sexual lingerie, versus a site like Chaturbatethat is more sexual and show-oriented. It also allows couples, which is one of its main draws, and hence will always be more sexual than MFC. MFC has a more relaxed, hangout atmosphere which some girls create in their room. There are of course plenty of sexual things going on as well, but MFC is your best bet out of all the camsites.
To be a Domme you need a certain personality and attitude. That, along with a bit of research, will get you accustomed to what submissive men desire from you online. There is a HUGE variety of things you can offer as a domme without taking your clothes off – JOI, CEI, Findom, Humiliation, Blackmail, etc. There is no camsite currently that is optimized for dommes, and while you can still log on MFC (there are a few very successful dommes like AstroDomina), the majority prefer to use social media and sell videos on either their own sites or sites like ManyVidsand Customs4U. Another option is phone sex, with a site likeNiteFlirt.
I will focus on what it takes to succeed on cam being non-nude and non-sexual or explicit, so tapping into that girl-next-door fantasy a lot of guys have.
Things to Do as a Non-Nude Model
❀ Establish a friendly atmosphere with the members watching you. How you do it is up to you, but try to showcase your personality versus your body (as obvious as that sounds), ban anyone who derails the conversation into a more sexual one or posts sexual gifs, and don’t forget to smile! A smile is the best ice breaker on cam. If it looks like you’re enjoying yourself, the tips will follow.
❀ Play games! Games are HUGE! Get a dry erase spinwheel and put it to good use. Play card games, Hangman, or even Battleship. Create your own to suit your personality. There are so many possibilities.
❀ Since you can’t do countdowns for clothes off or for cumshows, have countdowns for silly things like putting more clothes on or some sort of elaborate exercise routine, or hula hooping, or baking cookies! You need to give guys something to tip for, anything at all.
❀ Hold raffles and contests throughout the month. Raffles are a great way to make the guys excited and competitive, which translates into more tips for you for minimal work.
❀ To further solidify that member connection, send handmade presents/prizes in the mail, like custom drawings, if you’re artistic, custom polaroid pics, homemade treats or any other gift that you’ve put together yourself.
❀ Don’t forget about Skype! Even though lots of girls warn against Skype, that’s because there is a high chance of guys scamming you, DO hold special Skype hangout sessions with your best regulars. It seems to be the number one requested “prize”, since it gives them that exclusive one-on-one time with you.
❀ Keeping in touch with members outside of cam is important. Keep an active twitter, perhaps a personal blog, and snapchat your day-to-day happenings, which don’t need to be sexy at all!
Below is some beginner advice for anyone starting out in webcamming!
I find it’s pretty important to be prepared before you jump into camming and there are certain mistakes newbies make, which can be prevented, so read on!
✳ ARE YOU READY?
First off, are you mentally and emotionally ready for this job? Yes, it can be easy money (See my post on how much money top camgirls make), but it doesn’t mean that this kind of success will be possible for everyone. You need to know in your mind what your personal reasons are for doing this job. If you think you’ll be making thousands from the start and rolling in cash, I urge you to reconsider, because you’ll be very disappointed to find it harder than you thought to get members to tip and to interact and keep coming back to your room. Because camming is getting more and more mainstream, more girls are joining cam sites (and more camsites are popping up in general), so there are a lot of girls to choose from and not as many members willing to pay with free porn readily available. Some members also have the “freeloader” mentality where they don’t feel they should pay girls for talking to them and they will let others finish countdowns and just, well, freeload.
So, knowing that you’ll have to put in a LOT of time (and a bit of money from the start by buying some essential equipment likewebcam, lights, laptop, etc.) you will hopefully have more reasonable expectations about camming, and that if things are slow from the start, you will still push on and not give up. It takes dedication and time to build an audience, so don’t be disappointed if your earnings are low in the beginning.
Another mistake new camgirls make is not knowing how to market themselves. Camming is so much more than turning on your webcam and looking pretty on cam. You need to assess your skills and what you can bring to the table (without forcing it!). You need to highlight the skills, interests and hobbies that you already have, and you’ll see that guys will naturally gravitate toward that. If you’re into gaming, show it! Talk about the new game you got on Steam or even stream it on cam (some sites have restrictions about streaming outside content, so be careful). If you’re into makeup and dressing up, perfect! Make every show an experience and really show your creative side. Even if you don’t have any “interesting” hobbies, you can still show your unique personality and make your room reflect that. So, the key is be yourself, but a “bigger” version of yourself, and do not try to force yourself into the sex kitten type that you feel you need to be on cam.
On the subject of marketing, you need to decide what your marketing strategy will be. Having a Twitter is a big one, which makes it easier to interact with your fans by posting pics and talking about the day-to-day things in your life. Some girls have Tumblrs where they can write longer posts and share more of themselves. Some girls even create their own sites where they have member content and shows. Come up with some sort of strategy of how you’ll be promoting yourself online, because these days members almost expect to be able to reach you offline and see more of you outside of cam.
A lot of girls start out in webcamming by being employed in another job or having other responsibilities, which take up the majority of their time and make it hard to manage a consistent schedule. This ties into my Number 1 rule of camming, which is consistency. If you don’t have it, you won’t be able to build up a consistent group of regulars and your earnings will suffer. What also happens when girls first start out is they don’t have the right physical place and time to cam from. You may still be living at home, or with roommates, or have kids in the house, which is fine when having a “regular” job, but may be very difficult with camming. You may get very little privacy and be forced to work really odd hours around any of these factors, which will be detrimental to your income. There is no easy way around it. You will either have to come clean about camming to the people you’re living with, or move out, or quit your day job. It’s a hard decision for sure, but unless you have privacy and time for cam, you won’t be able to reach your full potential.
When considering privacy, are you ready for the fact that your shows will be recorded and posted online? This happens to every camgirl, sadly, and there is no way to avoid it. The only thing you can do is either ignore it or sign up with the Cam Model Protection service that will take down your pics/screencaps/videos. See my post about additional privacy tips and how to protect your content from being recorded.
All in all, patience and research are key! Being smart about it you can get a head start and succeed from the start. Good luck!
This situation is dreaded by any cam model – when you google your name and find screencaps and recorded videos of your camshows online. Worse yet is when they’re reposted to major porn sites. Unfortunately, no matter how well you may try to protect your privacy (by locking down your twitter, blocking certain locations on your camsite), the more time you spend camming, the more likely you’ll find your content illegally reposted online. It’s a terrible situation to be in, because you feel like you have no control, and as these images spread, they may be found by your friends, family, or coworkers and cause a lot of heartache.
So, How Exactly Can You Remove your Content?
Some cam sites offer DMCA takedown services for camgirls, but they are only somewhat effective. For example, Myfreecams uses a service to help you take down the videos by having you look for and submit the links to them, which they’ll then follow up on on your behalf. Only some of these sites will actually take down your content and the majority will ignore it and will continue to host your stolen pics and videos.
“By using Cam Model Protection you will be using the latest technologies to locate and remove your pirated content quickly. By monitoring the internet 24/7 we locate your stolen content within no time and send DMCA takedown notices to file hosting sites, tube sites, search engines and ISP’s that are hosting or linking to your stolen content.”
**Cam Model Protection is the only DMCA takedown service that has been able to successfully remove Upstore links, which are next to impossible to take offline.**
This is an incredible service for everyone who is not having luck removing their content online or is overwhelmed with constantly having to monitor it themselves. It comes with three different packages, and even though it might seem pricey, the peace of mind you’ll get using it is worth it. Here is what they each offer:
You can also do a Free Trial to see how you like the service, which is a great feature.
And best of all, your members can donate it to you by going to this link and purchasing any type of membership package. Click on the Donatebutton at the top of the page.
All in all, it is a VERY useful and camgirl tried-and-tested service to check out, and I’ve been very impressed with the reviews it’s been getting so far and my own personal experience!
Here are some additional tips on how to minimize your exposure and chances of your recordings showing up online. These tips work, but they come at a cost as well – your income potential.
Don’t do public cumshows, and do them only in privates or groups, or not at all, so that people recording you can’t see you do them in public chat.
Change your cam name often, so that it’s harder for people to search for you. Not the best strategy, but some models swear by it.
Don’t have a huge social media presence, including Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Tumblr, so that your photos can’t be spread as easily and you’re not as visible online. Lock down your Twitter and do the same with other social media.
