WorkonCamNow Review

WorkOnCamNow is a webcam studio that provides lots of great benefits to it’s cam models. Below I go over their features and rate them in several different categories, giving them a score in each category out of 10. Out of 60 possible points, I gave them 58/60, with an average score of 9.66. They excelled in every category.
 

Features 9/10:
WorkOnCamNow is an innovative cam studio that offers its models many great features. Their main goal is to help you succeed. Of course the amount of success that you have as a cam model is mainly based off of how much effort you put into it, but WorkOnCamNow is there to make it as easy as possible for you to succeed.
 
One great feature that they offer is a 24/7 model support line. If you’re experiencing an issue or just have a question, you can call them and their model support team will be there to provide assistance around the clock. Aside from that, they also have a specialized team that’s available by email or phone during business hours if you’re having any trouble signing up or just have a general question about the signup process or the way the site works.
 
They make it really easy for you to sign up and get started quickly on becoming a cam model so you can start earning money. Basically all you have to do is put in some basic info (name, address, ID, username, email, a few things about yourself, etc.). After that, there’s a couple documents to print and sign. Once you’re finished with that and submit everything, a team member will get in contact with you to help you finish setting up your account. They’ll also be there to go over all the basic info, give you some camming tips, and help you with equipment and setup. They really help guide you through the entire process.
 
Unlike some studios who grossly over exaggerate the amount that the average cam girl makes, WorkOnCamNow is very upfront with everything. They tell you how much their top models make, how much full time models make as opposed to part time models, and how much their average model makes. They pay out 50% to their models of all the money generated, and offer several different payout methods. You can even choose to get paid daily if you want!
 
Profits & Traffic 9/10:
Since they have been a trusted cam community since 2007, they get a lot of traffic. Currently they have over 2 million visitors, and that number keeps rising. As far as profits go, they pay their models 50%. This is about what the average cam site nowadays pays. So as long as you’re promoting yourself on social media, getting on cam often, and putting on a good show for your fans, the money is definitely there.
 
From everything I read, I don’t believe that they do any advertising for you, so you’re on your own there. But it isn’t hard to build up a large social media following. Just post lots of pictures and always mention on social media when you’re getting on cam. That way your followers will know where and when to find you. When you get on cam, your placement on the site can also help get you extra traffic in your room. Your placement on the homepage is based off of camscore. Their scoring system is based off of several different things: amount of time logged in, how many days a week you cam, how much you earn on cam, and feedback from users. Camscore refreshes every 30 minutes. If you spend a lot of time on cam, stay high energy, and interact with your fans, you’ll notice your camscore go up drastically.
 
Ease Of Using & Navigating The Site 10/10:
The site is super easy to figure out and navigate. They do a really good job explaining everything to prospective models. I was able to read through and understand everything about the company in a short amount of time. They’re very transparent, meaning that they don’t try to hide anything from you. They let you know exactly what you’re getting when you sign up through them. They also do a great job going over some FAQs and explaining some basics of both their site in particular and camming in general.
 
Payments & Cashouts 10/10:
WorkOnCamNow offers some of the best payout options. Besides offering a wide variety of ways to get paid, you can also choose how often you want to get paid with certain methods. They offer payouts via CMB paycard, direct deposit, mailed check, wire transfer, Payoneer, Paxum, and more. The majority of these pay out every other week, but CMB paycard is different. Not a lot of companies offer payout via CMB paycard, but it’s a really great option. You can cash out as often as you want, even daily if you choose too! There is a small fee of $4.95 per transfer though. The card basically works as a normal debit card. They transfer your money onto the card and you use it like you would any other debit card.
 
Privacy Protection & Geo-Blocking 10/10:
WorkOnCamNow offers regional blocking to their models. This means that you’re able to block certain regions from viewing your cam shows and content. You can block by both state and/or entire country, and you can select as many blocked regions as you want. This is great for models who are concerned about friends or family finding out what they do. Privacy protection with WorkOnCamNow is also great. Keeping your personal information safe and secure is of top importance to them. You never have to worry about personal information being leaked.
 
Customer Service & Support 10/10:
As I mentioned in the Features section, their customer service and support is top notch. They offer a 24/7 support line for models to call at any time. No matter the day or time, someone will be there to answer your questions or to help you with any issues you might be experiencing. For issues that don’t need immediate resolution, they also offer email support.
 
Overview:
​Overall, WorkOnCamNow is a really good option for models who are looking into working on cam. They provide great support and help you along the way. They also offer many different payout options.

Snapchat Takeover Guide

SnapChat Takeover

​Over the past year or so, Snapchat has gained a lot of popularity. Although it’s technically not adult friendly, it’s becoming one of the biggest social media platforms in​ the adult industry. Many cam models and porn stars are jumping on it as a means to make money through the app. Besides just being able to have a private Snapchat account that you sell access too, it’s also a great marketing tool. You can have a public Snapchat that’s free to follow. There you can promote your cam shows, website, other social media links, and anything else you have going on.
 
Aside from just using your own public Snapchat account to promote yourself, Snapchat takeovers are a big thing right now. There are literally thousands of promotional companies and individuals who run cam model promo Snapchat accounts. Many of these accounts have a large following. A good majority of these people had a Twitter promo account first and then created a Snapchat to coincide with it. What they do is grant models access to their Snapchat account and let you ‘takeover’ the account for a certain amount of time. Many promo accounts will give you access for an entire day!
 
Many Snapchat promo accounts will have a no nudity rule. They do this in order to protect their account since nudity actually isn’t allowed on Snapchat. Since they have so many followers, they don’t want to risk getting their account banned and have to start all over again. But just because you can’t show nudity, that doesn’t mean you can’t tease and really get guys all worked up so that they want to buy your content so they can see you naked! It’s sometimes even best not to show too much nudity on the accounts that allow it. That way the followers are more inclined to look you up elsewhere since you’re only teasing on the promo Snapchat account.
 
Besides posting pictures and little Snapchat videos with all of your camming, website, and social media links, you can also play games and do a FAQ session. When you first log on the account, make sure you introduce yourself and let people know that you’re open to answering questions. Soon you’ll notice the Snapchat inbox filling up with all kinds of guys wanting to know more about you. Answer the questions that you’re comfortable with and just have fun with it. If you have an specific rules, make sure you make those known right away as well. Some models don’t allow dick pics. Some don’t want guys to screenshot anything. Be clear about your rules so you don’t have to block too many people on someone else’s account.
 
Games are a really fun way to get the viewers involved and to make some extra money. In your ManyVids store, you can add game items when you’re doing takeovers. Some good ideas are balloon pops that have different prizes in them, spin the prize wheel, and roll the dice to win different prizes. A lot of models will also put their private Snapchat on sale while they’re doing a takeover. You could also set up a special promo code on ManyVids to give out to anyone who watches your takeover.
 
Takeovers can definitely be a lot of fun and earn you some extra cash. I suggest finding out approximately how many followers the account has before you agree to do a takeover though. This way you can judge if it’s gonna be worth your time. Also, you aren’t obligated to stick around all day just because you agreed to do a takeover. If there’s hardly any interaction or if you aren’t selling anything, it’s best not to waste your time. When that happens, just post some snaps with your links and move on. If it’s slow, you can also jump on cam while you’re doing the takeover. Then when you have some free time on cam, make a post or two on Snapchat and let people know that they can come watch you live.

Time Management Tips For Cam Models

Time Management for Webcam Models

​Every successful cam models knows the importance of time management.​ As the saying goes, time is money. This couldn’t be more true when it comes to camming. Since you’re your own boss and make your own hours, it’s up to you to motivate yourself and manage everything on your own. There isn’t a boss there to scold you or co-workers around to snitch on you. From the first day you start camming, you need to instill proper time management skills into your daily routine.
 
One of the easiest things you can do is create a ‘to-do’ list every night before bed. Take a few minutes to jot down the things you need to accomplish the next day and a list of the extra things you’d like to get done. Prioritize the most important things on the list and put those on the top so you get them done first. It feels so good to cross things off a to-do list, and that can really help to motivate you. If there’s extra things you didn’t get it, move them to the next day’s list and try to do those first so you don’t get even more behind.
 
Set a schedule and stick to it! Set yourself up a weekly schedule to live by. This should include what days you’re gonna cam, how long you’re gonna cam for, goals for the day, time set aside for shooting content, updating your website or blog, shooting customs, promotion, etc. These are all very important aspects of your business, and you need to make sure you’re sticking with them. Falling behind even just one day can really put a damper on things and screw up your entire weekly schedule.
 
When determining what days and for how long you’re gonna cam, you should definitely consider your peak hours. With some experimentation, you’ll be able to figure out what hours are the most profitable for you on cam. Schedule the rest of your tasks for the day around that since camming is likely what will be earning you the majority of your pay. Always make it a priority to get on cam during your peak hours. At the end of the day when you’re checking your earnings, you’ll be happy you motivated yourself to get on when it’s easiest to make money instead of struggling through slow hours and wasting time trying to reach your goal for that day.
 
Taking time out for yourself is also very important. No one can work all the time. Schedule in a fun little activity, hobby time, nap time, or anything else that gives you a small break. It can be very refreshing to get away from work, even if it’s just for a little bit. And that could be just the motivation you need to reset and get back out there working harder than ever.
 
It’s inevitable that your schedule isn’t gonna be perfect at first and that there may be unexpected things that pop up throughout the week. The important thing is that you have one in place and stick to it as best as possible. Despite what some people might think, being a cam girl can definitely be stressful and take a toll on you. But with proper motivation and time management skills, you’ll be able to push through all the struggles with a smile on your face and a dildo in your… well… you know. 😛

Cam Model Tax Guide

Cam Model Tax Guide

​This guide is designed for cam models residing in the United States.
 
Tax season can be a very stressful time for cam models. One thing that some new models don’t consider is that they need to pay taxes on everything they earn while on cam. Since you’re working as an independent contractor for these sites, they don’t take out any taxes from your paychecks like a normal job would. Because of this, you’re responsible for putting aside money every month so that you have it come tax season.​
 
I definitely recommend using tax software. There are plenty of options out there that are affordable. Using software and doing your own taxes will prevent the embarrassment of having to talk to someone in person about what it is you do for a living and the strange things you’re writing off. So unless you’re fine with explaining what exactly it is that you do, it’s best to file yourself. 😛
 
If you made over $600, the main form that you’re gonna be filling out is the 1040. You can easily find a copy of this form in the software you’re using or online with a quick Google search. Unless you’ve branded yourself and actually filed for a business license, there’s no reason to put your stage name or anything like that on your tax forms. Instead you file as an individual and use your social security number and real name. The form is fairly simple to figure out until you get to about the middle of the first page. At this point, you’ll need to list your “business income” and attach Schedule C. Schedule C is where stuff really starts to get complicated. This is the form that you can put your write offs on.
 
There are many guides on the internet that say you can write off all kinds of crazy things as a cam model. The truth of the matter is that you can only write off things that you bought to use specifically for your job. And even then, there are many restrictions. Having too many write offs is a huge red flag and will get your audited. Even if you get away with it for a couple years, it will eventually come back to bite you in the ass and you may have to pay back taxes for the stuff you originally got away with. Dildos and lingerie are not legitimate write offs according to US law. Don’t even bother trying. Many cam models will also try to write off their “home office”. This includes their rent/mortgage, computer, and even their internet. But remember what I said earlier? You can only write off things that you bought to use specifically for your job. So unless you only live in your house or apartment while you’re working, if you only use your computer for work and not for browsing the internet, and if you only use your internet connection while you’re working and not for personal use at all, these are not business expenses. That means they cannot be written off. Don’t risk getting audited over stuff like this. Like I said, you will get caught.
 
Besides items that you use for work, you can also write off travel expenses. But again, keep in mind that you can only write off expenses if they were used for work. So if you go on a trip to visit another model to shoot content with, that can be a write off. Or if you go somewhere to shoot your own content, you can write that off as well. If you do get audited, you need to keep every single receipt from your trip. This includes air fare, car rental, gas, hotel, photographer expenses, etc.
 
For the average cam model, the last form that you should have to fill out is the Schedule SE, or the Self-Employment Tax form. This will let you know how much self-employment tax you owe. Once put into your original 1040, you’ll be able to finish filling that form out and determine your total tax amount. Oh, and don’t forget about your state tax form. You still need to fill that out as well. As long as you only lived in one state over the past year, the form is pretty self explanatory and easy to fill out.
 
Good luck!

Starting Your Own Website

Starting your Own Website

​Besides doing live cam shows, many cam models branch out to other things in order to earn more money. One popular idea is starting your own website. Generally this would be a paysite that your fans can join in order to get access to a large amount of your content. It could include your videos, photosets, live show archives, blog, and maybe even a store to sell tangible goods and custom content.​ Members would pay monthly to continue accessing your content. Even if you don’t know the first thing about starting your own website, there are companies out there that make it easy for you to get started.
 
The first one we’ll talk about, and the one that I use for my own website, is ModelCentro. They’ve been around for a few years now and are a great option. They’re basically a CMS (content management system) platform. That means they provide you with all of the tools that are necessary to starting your own adult paysite. This includes premade forms that easily allow you to upload all of your content, add titles, descriptions, keywords, cover pictures, previews, watermarks, etc. They also provide you with on-site software to do live cam shows for your members. These shows can be free to all members or you can have certain members pay for a show with you. They have a built-in blog that you can use, calendar, about me page, and more! They really are the complete package in my opinion. And even though they already have a decent amount of features, they’re always working to add more. They really listen to the models and prioritize their new features based off of model input. An on-site storefront is currently in the works and should be released soon.
 
A downfall to using a site like ModelCentro, is that they take a percentage of everything that you make. You keep 67.5% when you use them. They take a percentage out for billing and a percentage out for themselves for providing all of the services that they do. Some models prefer to keep more money, which is fine if you know a bit more about web design and have the time to do everything yourself. You might choose to make a site with WordPress. WordPress is more complicated and time consuming to get to know than ModelCentro. Plug-ins and scripts that fit your needs all need to be found and installed by you. WordPress does provide a list of premade plug-ins, it’s just a matter of finding the right ones and getting them configured to your liking.
 
As far as making it so your fans have to pay to access your WordPress site, you have several different options. You could always use an adult-friendly payment processor such as CCBill. They provide you with fully functional buttons and forms that allow your fans to input their credit card information, have it processed through CCBill, and then provide access to your members-only content once they’re cleared. Another option would be for you to completely create the join page of your website yourself to include other ways of payment such as Amazon gift cards, GiftRocket, tips on a cam site, etc. In my opinion though, this complicates things. If they join through any of those methods, you’ll have to manually create their member account after you get paid. If you aren’t near a computer as soon as you get the notification that someone paid, that member will have to wait until you’re free before accessing your site. That can be frustrating.
 
If you 100% want to do your site from scratch, you’ll need to get hosting and a domain name. Unless you’re really experienced in web/graphic design or want to pay a company to create the site for you, I don’t suggest even trying this. Paying a company outright to create a site for you can be very expensive. And you’ll need to find a company that’ll work with adult content. And creating a site yourself, even if you have some experience, is incredibly time consuming.
 
One last thing… make sure you buy Whois privacy for your domain! It’ll mask your true identity. Without it, anyone can look up the name of the person who bought the domain name, along with other personal information. As a cam model, protecting your true identity is very important. So be sure to do this immediately after purchasing your name. It isn’t very expensive, and it’s most definitely a necessity.

Props To Keep Handy While On Cam

Webcam Props for cam shows

In several of our getting started becoming a cam model guides, we talked about the necessities that you’ll need to cam. These include a laptop or desktop computer that can smoothly run your camming software, a HD webcam, fast internet, and flattering lighting. But every good cam model knows the importance of props! Certain props can play a huge role in your daily shows on cam. It’s important to have these things close by you at all times so that you’ll always be prepared.
 
The first thing is toys. If you’re a nude cam model, you’ll most likely play with sex toys during your cam shows. Most models like to have a wide variety of toys. Not only does this allow you to switch things up from time to time, but it gives your fans more options to choose from if they take you into a private show. I recommend having both a caucasian and black flesh-colored dildo. These are good for real-life roleplays where the guy wants to pretend like he’s really in the scenario and that he’s the one fucking you. I also recommend having a Hitachi and/or wand vibrator. You can find cordless, waterproof wand vibrators on Amazon for around $30. They’re great for making sure you cum nice and hard during your shows too! A lot of guys like watching a girl use glass toys. They feel great and are one of the most sanitary sex toys because they aren’t porous. And if you’re into anal, definitely get whatever anal toys you’re comfortable with. If you only like very light anal, a small butt plug is a good option. Lube is something else that you should keep handy. Make sure that whatever kind of lube you get is compatible with the type of toys you use. Some lubes will eat through certain types of toys. If you’re into spanking, keeping a paddle close by can be fun!
 
Most models play games with their fans while on cam. A few props to consider picking up are cards, dice, Never Have I Ever, raffle tickets, and a prize wheel. All of these can be used for games, which is a great way to interact with your fans. It keeps them interested and is fun for everyone… including you. If you have video deals or other special promotions going on, a white board, chalkboard, or even just poster board can be very helpful. This way you can list your deals and have it displayed behind you during your shows.
 
Lingerie, accessories, and other clothes are crucial to being a cam model. Some guys like specific colors or certain materials. Some like it when you dress up in a costume, wear heels, or put on yoga pants. If you keep these things nearby, you’ll always be prepared for whatever is asked of you. This way you won’t miss out on any money if someone comes asking for you to change outfits. Keeping hair ties close by is a good idea too in case you’re asked to switch up your hair style.
 
A few other miscellaneous things to keep nearby are towels in case of clean-up, baby wipes to quickly sanitize your toys in between shows, lip gloss or any other make-up that might need touching up throughout the day, something to drink, little snacks to munch on, blankets and pillows to keep you comfortable, and just anything else that you think will make your work day easier.

Getting A Gold Show Started On Streamate

How do I start a Gold show on Streamate

​Many models who cam on Streamate do gold shows at some point.​ A gold show is basically a group show where multiple people contribute to help you reach your goal amount. If the amount is reached, or if you get close enough to your goal, you can choose to do the show and everyone who contributed at least the minimum amount gets to join in and watch. Gold shows are appealing to many members because they usually only have to pay a small one time amount in order to get a longer show, as opposed to paying per minute for a private show. And gold shows are appealing to cam models because they can raise a large amount of money and only have to do one show. It’s also guaranteed money as opposed to the possibility of someone taking you private and leaving after only a couple minutes.
 
Although the idea of a gold show is appealing, they can sometimes be hard to get started. This can be incredibly frustrating and may even make you want to give up or stop camming for the day. Luckily for you, I’ve been on Streamate for over four years now and can give you some advice on how to get your show started. 🙂 The first thing you need to consider is the time of day that you cam. This is important not only for gold shows, but just in general. You simply aren’t going to get as many customers if you cam while not as many people are online. Play around with different times and see what works for you. I’ve found that I get a lot of traffic when I cam in the afternoon (1-4 pm EST) and then again in the evening (7pm-midnight EST). My room is usually pretty busy during those times, especially when I’m offering gold shows.
 
When you go to start a gold show, you put in the amount that you want to raise all together, the amount of time your fans have to get you to that goal, how much each person has to contribute in order to watch the show, how long of a show you’re gonna do, and a topic for your show. Every single one of these factors is important and plays a big role in how successful your gold show will be. The amount that you want to raise all together should be realistic and based on how much you’re generally able to pull in during a gold show. If you set it too high, members will be hesitant to tip because they’ll think that you’ll only start the show if you reach that impossible goal. If you’re new to gold shows and having a hard time figuring out what to make your goal be, look at other models on the same line of the homepage as you. Likely they’ll be getting about the same amount of traffic as you, and this can at least help you decide a general range.
 
The amount each person has to contribute in order to watch the show is also very important. You will always want this number to be less than your per minute rate for private shows, since this is more of a group show without requests. And you’ll generally want it lower than the amount of time your show is gonna last. I’ve found that a 6-7 minute show for $4 works well for me.  The topic that you set for your show is also important. You want it to include a general idea of what your fans can expect to see in the show. Don’t be misleading. Make sure you’re offering a show that’s well-rounded… something that a wide variety of people will enjoy. Your topic can also include any special deals you have going on.
 
Speaking of special deals, that’s another way to raise more money for your gold show. If you offer entries into a raffle, video packages, or something special to the high tipper, you’re more likely to get guys wanting to tip more than the minimum amount. For the high tipper, you can offer to moan their name during the show or even let them direct you. You can also offer different level video packages that your fans can purchase. They’re more likely to purchase these during a gold show than in free chat because then they get the videos plus the gold show as opposed to just the videos. Entries into a raffle are a good idea too. For me, I tell my fans that for every $5 they tip, they get one raffle ticket. So even though my gold shows are only $4 to watch, many will tip that extra $1 to get an entry. It doesn’t sound like much, but it can really add up over time.
 
Teasing and getting people pumped for your show is also very important. During your gold show countdown, you should never just be sitting there looking bored. Engage with your fans. Chat with them and greet them as they enter your room. Be sure to mention any video deals, games, or raffles that you have going on. Sometimes they’re too lazy or too busy watching you to read your topic or messages. Let them know what you’re gonna do in the show. You might even want to start removing some articles of clothing after you get a certain amount away from your goal. Being enthusiastic and teasing is a great way to get your fans excited for your show.

Avoiding Payment Scams On Webcam

Avoiding Webcam Scams

​If you’ve been a webcam model for long enough, you’ve probably encountered someone trying to scam you. In fact, even if you’ve just gotten started, you may have had someone try to scam you. Since they know that you’re new to camming, they assume that you’re more likely to fall for their scam.​ Many models can tell you horror stories of a scam or two that they’ve fallen for in the past. Some are worse than others. But if you fall for one, no matter what the degree, you’re gonna feel frustrated and upset. So to help prevent these scams, I’m gonna go over some of the most common ones that you may encounter during your camming career.
 
The majority of scams that you’ll encounter while on cam involve the scam artist getting you to do something for free, even though you think that they’re paying you to do it. The first thing that I want to say is that you should always follow your gut feeling. If something doesn’t feel right, that’s probably because it isn’t. Although these scam artists are usually very good at what they do, there’s always gonna be something there that doesn’t feel quite right or just seems off. If you sense that at all, look into it before giving anything away for free. There’s no harm in protecting yourself.
 
Even if someone promises to pay you, you should never perform a show or give out your content before getting paid. If they say that they don’t know if they can trust you, direct them to a site that has an escrow system. Extralunchmoney and Mygirlfund are examples. Both of these sites allow the member to create an escrow that holds the credits in limbo until you deliver the product. Once delivered, the member gets tiny screenshots of the content, and they can either approve or deny the escrow. That way it’s fair for everyone involved and no one has to worry about the other person not following through.
 
Never let people pay you via non adult friendly payment providers. PayPal is a perfect example of a payment provider that is not adult friendly. You may think it’s a good idea to use PayPal because you keep 100%, but it’s definitely not worth the risk. First off, your account will get shut down immediately if they find out you’re using it for adult services. Your funds will be held for months before you can withdraw them and you’ll never be able to have another PayPal account under your name again. Secondly, the customer could do what’s called a chargeback. And if they do, you cannot protest it since you weren’t allowed to use it for your adult activities in the first place. If a customer files a chargeback with their bank, the bank will cancel the payment that they made to you via PayPal and you won’t get paid. You’ll be asked to provide proof of what you offered in exchange for the PayPal money. And again, since it was an adult service, you won’t be able to provide that proof and you’ll have lost out on that money.
 
Another way people are scamming cam models is with fake emails. They design the emails to look like they’re coming from a company that you trust such as Amazon or Giftrocket, but really they aren’t. Instead they’re just fake emails designed to look like that, but don’t actually have any money attached to them that you can redeem. If you get something that you’re unsure of, make sure the funds go into your account before you do the cam show or before giving them your content in return.
 
The final thing is fake cam models and admins. Some guys will pretend to be another cam model in order to get your trust. They’ll do this to get to know more about you, or even to get free access to your private content. This happens a lot on Snapchat. You’ll think you’re adding a fellow cam model, when really it’s just a guy pretending to be a girl in order to add models for free. Before accepting anyone, do your research. Find that models real camming or Twitter account and DM them to see if that’s really them. Things like this happen while live on cam as well. You may get someone in your chat room that’s pretending to be an admin. They may ask you for certain private information. Never give anything like that out! A reputable company would never contact you in your chat room while you’re on cam. And there’s always ways set in place to know which accounts are actually admins or not. 

Keeping Your Fans Interested

Keep your Fans Interested

​One of the most important things to becoming a successful cam model is knowing how to keep your fans interested. This usually takes some work and you more than likely will have to try out different things before figuring out what works for you. But once you do, you’ll start to notice more people showing up in your cam room, more interactions between you and your fans, and your own work day will go by much faster and be much more enjoyable.​
 
When potential fans first enter your cam room, they notice your general appearance. Making sure you have a look that’s appealing to the types of guys you want to draw in is very important. If you’re into dominating men, you probably don’t want to be dressed like a schoolgirl, sitting there giggling and teasing. Give off the vibe that you’re trying to bring in. The second thing that they’ll most likely notice is your cam room in general. Have it set up to match whatever it is that you’re into and the kinds of shows that you do. Guys are more likely to be interested in your shows and feel more attached to you if the entire environment that they’re watching you in is set up in a way that makes them feel like they’re really there.
 
Simply chatting and genuinely looking interested in what others are saying to you is incredibly important. If you’re just sitting there in silence looking bored, your fans are gonna get bored too. But if you’re engaging in conversation, even if it’s just with yourself, they’re more likely to want to stick around and hear you out. Members who chat with you are sometimes just as good as paying members. Your work day will fly by when there’s people to chat with in between shows. So make sure you interact with any member who’s trying to chat with you. Plus, just because they don’t have money today, doesn’t mean they won’t be back with some in the future. If you write them off right away, they may never be back.
 
Don’t just sit there! Get up and move around! A fairly common mistake that new cam models make is not teasing. Teasing shouldn’t make you feel like you’re giving too much away for free. Instead think of it as marketing. Every second that you’re on cam, you’re marketing yourself. Are you more likely to watch the kitten in the pet store that’s sleeping, or the one that’s running around playing? Even if you need a break and are just hanging out or relaxing, you can still move around a little bit to make sure you don’t look bored or put out.
 
It’s also important to actually focus on your chat room. If you’re constantly on your phone or checking other websites, it’s gonna be obvious. Your fans want your attention. They don’t want to watch a cam model who isn’t even interested in what she’s doing or what they have to say. That’ll just make them feel like you don’t have time for them or won’t be willing to listen to them when they try to explain what they want to see in a show. Little things come up from time to time that you have to check, just make sure you don’t spend too much time on them. If your room is dead and you decide to use that time to fill out raffle tickets or something, still make sure you’re looking up at your chat frequently and interacting with new members who come in or anyone who tries chatting with you.
 
The final piece of advice for keeping your fans interested in your cam shows is to switch things up a bit. Don’t always do the exact same show over and over again. If you work on Streamate, maybe you’re having a day where you just focus on gold shows. If you make every gold show exactly the same, you won’t get any repeat customers. Instead switch your topic every show and try to do something a little different. Maybe start with a show focused on a blow job, then a fingering show, then a show with different toys. Or if you want to do everything in each show, switch up the order in which you do things to make the show seem a little different. Diversity is good, and will lead to customers wanting to watch all of your shows since they know they’ll get a unique experience each time.
