If you’ve frequented chat rooms on Myfreecams, you’ve probably heard models talking about the Miss MyFreeCams competition. It is a monthly competition on MFC that starts at 12:00:01 am PST on the first of every month and runs until 11:59:59 pm PST on the last day of each month. All active models on the site are automatically eligible for the contest, and the top 100 models who earn the most tokens during each month will receive a cash prize. The top girl is crowned Miss MyFreeCams!
There are lots of prizes to be given out in the Miss MyFreeCams competition each month, including bragging rights! The top 250 models are listed on the Miss MyFreeCams page throughout the month, which is good for exposure. The top 100 models all receive a cash prize and remain listed for the duration of the year. The top 20 receive additional exposure on the page that shows rankings from previous years. The top 3 models each month receive a little crown icon on their profile picture, inclusion in the top banner on the website, and a congratulatory tweet from the MFC Twitter page with over 93K followers. The girl crowned Miss MyFreeCams also receives a custom-designed, hand-made official Miss MyFreeCams pendant and matching necklace. The pendant is made with 14K white gold, diamonds, and accent stones that coincide with the traditional gemstone of that month of birth. Each year they use a new design for the crown pendant, making each necklace unique.
As far as cash prizes go, here is the breakdown:
11TH – 20TH: $200
21ST – 100TH: $100
Some may argue that the cash prizes aren’t that large for how competitive the competition gets each month. One reason for that is so that models don’t purchase tokens for themselves in order to boost their ranking. If you’re in the top 100, it takes a lot of tokens to move up in rank. And the price difference between buying and receiving tokens is 50%. If a model just wants bragging rights, she may purchase tokens for herself, but if she’s going for the cash prize, it makes no sense to. And during most months, the top 3 girls are thousands and thousands of tokens apart from each other, so the model would have to spend a fortune to increase her rank herself.
Miss MyFreeCams is more about having fun, pushing yourself to rank higher than you did the previous month, and getting your fans to tip you more tokens to increase your rank! When someone tips you and that tip makes you move up in rank, you should always make it a point to thank them profusely! This will encourage them, and other fans watching, to try to be the next one that moves you up in the ranks. Like with any competition, there is always going to be the models (and fans) who get catty and mean. Ignore them. They’re only jealous and trying to get a rise out of you. Focus your attention on your room and your fans. Maybe if they did the same, they’d be ranked higher that month. 😛
Throughout the month, you can check your current Miss MyFreeCams ranking at any time through your Dashboard. It also shows all of your past rankings. From your Dashboard, you can also choose to keep your username anonymous if you place in the top 250. I don’t think any models do this though because you will only receive half of the prize money if you’re anonymous, and you cannot win first place since your profile picture cannot be shown.
If you decide to cam on MyFreeCams, don’t spend too much time worrying about the competition at first. Focus on making your show great and entertaining. If you do that first, you’ll notice your ranking in the competition increasing, without you even having to do anything different!
If you’re new to the world of camming, Myfreecams might not be the best site for you to start out on. This isn’t saying that it won’t work for some new models, but overall it makes more sense to get the hang of camming on another site before moving to MFC. You’re free to make your own decision of course, but here are some of the reasons behind it:
When you first start out on Myfreecams, you get a “new model” tag. This will increase your traffic when you first start. Unfortunately the tag only lasts for the first 10 hours of streaming. If you don’t get your camscore up to a decent level in those first 10 hours, you’ll notice a drastic drop in your traffic the first time you log on without your new model tag. At that point, it could take months of camming to get your score up to a level where you’ll start noticing decent, consistent traffic in your room.
Your camscore on Myfreecams determines your placement on the site, and it is hard to maintain and keep at a high enough level to keep a good sized group of members in your room. When determining your placement, MFC only takes in consideration your camscore, nothing else. Your camscore is based on the amount of tokens you earn over a certain period of time. On many other camming sites, your ranking on the site is not based off of how much money you earn. Instead it’s based off of the quality of your equipment and stream, the amount of time you spend on cam, and the amount of good ratings you get. When you first start off camming, especially on a site like MFC where most shows happen in public chat, it’s hard to build up a fan base… especially in your first 10 hours. For many new models, you’re still trying to figure out how everything works on the site for at least the first few hours.
On MFC, models make much more money when they have other things to sell besides just their live cam shows: videos, pictures, customs, Snapchat, phone numbers, panties… just to mention a few. When you first start out, you’re more than likely not going to have those things ready to sell. Again, especially not in the first 10 hours of camming, which is the crucial point to raise your camscore. As a new model, you also probably won’t have a large, dedicated social media following yet either. It is definitely an advantage to already have fans who you know will support you when you first start off on a site like MFC.
It makes much more sense to start off on a site like Streamate for at least the first few months of camming. Streamate does not rank you on the amount of money you earn. Instead your rank is determined by the factors I mentioned before (quality of your equipment and stream, the amount of time you spend on cam, and the amount of good ratings you get). It doesn’t matter if you hardly make any money your first few hours on cam, your rank will still increase the longer you spend streaming, if you have HD equipment, and if you have a fast internet connection. This means you can take as long as you need to learn the ropes, get comfortable camming, build a following, and work on other items to sell (videos, pictures, etc.).
Another thing about your camscore on Myfreecams, is that you have to remain consistent if you want to keep your camscore at a certain level or have it increase. Having just a couple slow days, or even hours when you’re new can really lower your score and drastically drop your rank. To keep things interesting and fun for fans, most models on MFC play games. But when you’re a new model still trying to figure out how the site works, it can be very difficult to juggle everything at once. Between chatting, performing, entertaining, figuring out games, putting everything together correctly, and just being nervous, it’s almost an impossible task to handle everything when you’re just getting started.
There are no do-overs on Myfreecams. Once you create your account, that is the account you’re stuck with. So if you mess up in your first several hours of camming, you cannot delete it and create a new account to start fresh with the new model tag again. You may have to spend months of camming to increase your camscore to a level that earns you enough money to make this your full time job.
I don’t want this to seem like I’m bashing MFC, because that is not the case at all! Myfreecams is one of the top cam sites out there. They have many great features and host some of the top grossing cam models. They just might not be right for a new model to jump into until she learns the ropes elsewhere.
MyFreeCams or ‘MFC’ as its often referred to is one of the most popular live cam sites out there. Below I 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!
How Much Experience Do You Have With The Site?
I spent about 4 months camming on MFC.
Myfreecams has many features that they offer their models in order to help them succeed. The first is the built-in software that you use to broadcast your cam. It helps keep you organized while on cam by making everything you need easily accessible to you. There are many features within the software that you can edit and change every time you login. Some of the features include: video quality, sound settings, customizing your font, choosing who can send you PM’s, muting/unmuting basics and guests, and choosing if you want to accept Private, TruePrivate, or Group Show requests. From the software, you can also resize the screen where you watch yourself on cam, see a list of users in your room, check your chat room, start a countdown, and check your PM’s in separate tabs.
The majority of models on MFC spend most of their time in free chat. They start countdowns that must be met in order to do certain actions: remove bra, get completely naked, blow job show, cum show, etc. You can also offer a few different private shows that only members who pay into them can join. The first is a regular Private show. Your fan is charged 60 tokens a minute, which means you earn $3/minute. For these shows, other members can pay to “spy” on the show. They won’t be able to chat with you, but they can watch what you’re doing. It costs 20 tokens per minute to spy on a show, which means you earn $1/minute per user spying. A TruePrivate costs 80 tokens per minute, earning you $4/minute. These shows are one-on-one. No one can spy on these shows. The final kind of private show is a Group Show. If 3 or more members request a Group Show from a model at the same time, the model can choose to start one. You’ll be taken into a private room with everyone who is paying to be in the Group Show. Members are charged 10 tokens per minute, earning you $0.50/minute per user. You can choose to end a Group Show whenever you want. The Group Show will also end automatically once all paying members leave the show. You can even earn money while you’re off cam! Members can tip you while you’re offline from your profile.
With MFC, your profile is fully customizable. You can update colors, add graphics, links, pretty much anything you want! If you don’t know HTML or CSS, there are a lot of websites out there with premade layouts for you to use. Some are free and some you can pay for to have it customized exactly how you want. Some cam sites don’t allow you to mention your social media accounts. MFC is different. You can post the link to your website, Twitter, Amazon wishlist, etc.
Members are able to message you through MFC Mail when you’re online or offline. This feature is kind of like email and can be used to send pics/vids, discuss details of a private show, or chat about anything really. There is also a PM (private message) feature. Most models charge a fee for allowing guys to be added to their friends list, which then allows them to PM you. PM’s can be easily viewed in separate tabs while you’re online to privately communicate with fans on your friends list.
Every month, MFC holds the Miss MyFreeCams competition. The top 100 models who earn the most tokens during the month receive cash prizes ranging from $100 to $1000! The model in first place also gets a golden crown at the top of her profile photo and a one-of-a-kind 14k gold pendant.
A few other features include cam2cam, which allows you to watch a members webcam feed. Most models charge for this. When you’re online, you can assign a room helper. The room helper can update the room topic, mute/unmute guests and basics, ban/unban members, and modify countdowns. Since it’s your room, you are notified of any changes the room helper makes and you can reverse them or remove them as your room helper at any time. This feature comes in handy if you’re doing a show that involves you being away from your keyboard. For example a shower/bath show, oil show, dancing, etc.
Profits & Traffic 10/10:
MFC is the largest live cam site in the industry. There are over 15 million users registered on MFC and they get more than double that in unique visitors per month. Some of the highest paid cam models come from MFC. The top girls are pulling in over $700K a year, and many models make over $10K a month.
MFC is a token based cam site. Members purchase tokens and then send those tokens to models. You earn $0.05 per token. MFC handles most refunds and chargebacks without having to take any money back from the model.
Checking your earnings is made easy by MFC. When you’re on cam, all of your token stats for that session are displayed for you to see. You can easily see your overall tokens earned, how much each member has tipped, and how much you’ve earned from private/group/spy/tips. From your model dashboard, you can also see how much you’ve earned by day, month, and specific user.
If you put in the time and effort to cam regularly, positively engage with your fans, build relationships, and genuinely have fun, MFC can be incredibly profitable for you. And if you truly enjoy what you do, it won’t even feel like work most days.
Ease Of Using & Navigating The Site 9/10:
Everything you need can be accessed through your model dashboard. When you first look at it, it can be kind of overwhelming. There is definitely a learning curve to remembering where everything is. While you’re waiting to get your account approved, you should take some time to click on every tab and view the information in it. There is useful information under every tab, so be sure to familiarize yourself with where everything is located.
Payments & Cashouts 10/10:
Payments are sent out on the 1st and 16th of every month as long as the minimum payout amount has been reached. You can choose to get paid by check, direct deposit, Payoneer, or Paxum. They also offer international wire transfer and international check by mail to select countries. For check in the mail to USA or Canada, there is no charge and the minimum payout is $20. For direct deposit to USA, there is no charge and the minimum payout is $20. Payoneer is also free and the minimum payout is $20. Paxum is free to and the minimum payout is $10. International wire transfers cost $15 and there is a minimum payout of $1000. International checks by mail are free and have a minimum payout of $100.
MFC also allows you to skip a payout if you choose to. You can hold off on payment for as long as you want, and switch it back on at any time.
Privacy Protection & Geo-Blocking 10/10:
There are a few different options to help you with privacy concerns. You are able to block both countries and specific regions (states/provinces) from viewing your camming profile. You are also able to ban specific users from entering your room. You can ban someone for a short period of time or put a lifetime ban on them. You can unban them at any time if you choose to. You can also attach a note to them so you remember why you banned them. This note is private and can only be viewed by you.
Customer Service & Support 9/10:
MFC does not offer any phone support. You can only contact them through email. They have a lot of extensive resource guides for models, so you more than likely will be able to find the answer to any questions you have in there. But if you do need to get in contact with them via email, they are pretty quick to respond.
Overall Myfreecams is a great option for a camming platform. They are the largest cam site in the world and host some of the most successful models. Their vast amount of features are designed to help make you the most amount of money possible.
