Losing Motivation as a Webcam Model

It’s a sad tale. One that happens to millions of people around the world on a daily basis. Your HBIC (head bitch in charge) who you thought you had a bond with has up and left you. No note, no phone call, no bittersweet kiss or goodbye sex…just gone. Who is this flighty yet seductive mistress? Motivation.

Motivation & What To Do When You Lose It

What does motivation even mean? It’s so easy to throw the word around and pretend that it doesn’t have this massive weight on your shoulders that can come along with it, but honestly finding motivation can be difficult. Not to mention the fact that once you find it and you’re on top of the world until suddenly you realize that keeping motivation is a whole different beast entirely.

Like it or not, motivation is an integral part of what makes people successful. All of us, but it’s especially important to remember that motivation is NOT the end all be all of getting things done. Especially in the cam world, where you are completely in charge of your own schedule, motivation can be hard to come by for the majority of us, the majority of the time.

Trust and believe that I am the laziest cam girl you will ever meet. Even today I have been procrastinating getting ready to get on cam because the motivation just Isn’t There. I’m sure you all can relate to having zero drive to spend all the time to get dolled up, get on cam and entertain the world with your magical vagina and sparkling wit. It’s hard, and sometimes it downright sucks.

So what do you do when motivation has left you and all you can think about is laying on your couch with the only two men you need? (I’m speaking about Ben & Jerry’s of course) Well, it’s not an easy answer, and honestly, it’s not one that is going to be cut and dry. Different strokes for different folks and all that. However, I can tell you what works for me and maybe it will give you some ideas to try on your own.

Look at fancy things.

I know this could mean literally anything, and might sound a little silly but I LOVE searching for houses that are for sale/rent that would be in my price range if I consistently worked my schedule. Clothing that I know I would have the money to buy if I could just stick to actually getting my ass on cam. Fast cars and nice vacations. Really anything that strikes your fancy will

do, but when the motivation is lacking sometimes all it takes it to look at something that could be within your reach if you just got up and got moving.

Go On A Camgirl Forum BUT STAY AWAY FROM THE NEGATIVE THREADS!

It helps to have support. So when I’m perfectly content with sitting on the couch and reading my smut, even though my subconscious is niggling in the back of my mind telling me to be an adult and own up to my responsibility of working, it can help in an amazing way to get on a forum and read about how badass the other models are doing.

I like to look at the goal threads or the bragging threads. It helps me to see that other models are out there killing it and reinforces the fact that if I push myself then I too could be the one posting in those threads and motivating other models to go out there and kill it.

EXERCISE

Exercise isn’t fun. We all know this, but nobody ever said it was SUPPOSED to be fun. It does however keep you healthy, but that’s beside the point in this scenario. When I am extra lazy it’s really easy for me to slip into a depression and let myself become a complete sloppy mess and not do anything that I said to myself I was going to accomplish.

Now, I know that it takes a whole different type of motivation in itself to get yourself up and exercising, but if you can conquer even 5 minutes of jumping jacks or crunches and get your blood flowing it can help.

Whenever I exercise (especially in the morning) I already feel so accomplished and that I pushed myself and it makes it that much easier to get ready and face the rest of my goals for the day, and then smash them.

Accomplishing goals breeds more accomplishments, and I don’t think anyone would disagree that getting up and exercising even though it isn’t the easiest thing in the world can motivate you enough to make you feel like you can take on the world. Hell anyone who can do 10 burpees in a row or spin for an hour can do great things. #BeastMode

SET A SCHEDULE AND STICK TO IT

This sounds like it should be so easy, but we all know it isn’t. If you accomplish this then my hat is off to you, because it is still something that I am quite literally working on every day to try and master. IF you set a schedule (ex: Monday-Friday 4 pm-8 pm) then you can treat it like you would any other 9-5 job.

Even on the days that you don’t want to go there, you still do. Pick up your briefcase, down some coffee, and get ‘er done. If you worked for somebody else, you would show up to that job whether or not you had the motivation so that is the same feeling that you need to take with you when you are setting a schedule to get on cam.

These aren’t foolproof, and it’s okay that we all have bad days every once in a while. The key is training your mind to be better than it was yesterday, to push yourself to go the extra mile and do something that you might not want to do. Dedication trumps inspiration, so please just force yourself to do something and you’ll end up motivating yourself. Now stop reading this and go out there and SLAY.

Competition breeds success

Competition between Webcam Models

Competition breeds success. I will take that to the bank, even though half of you reading this will probably disagree with me. I suppose it’s a matter of opinion (even though I’m right!)

What am I referring to when I say that phrase? I’m speaking on why it’s OKAY to help out other models in the industry. It’s OKAY to share trade secrets. It’s OKAY to allow them to succeed along with you. It’s OKAY to let people know about camming, it doesn’t have to always be in the shadows.

Woah.. Calm down. I know that a lot of models will disagree with me on that last point. I have gotten into many debates about whether or not camming should stay exclusive and in the shadows of the deep dark interwebs. A lot of you feel as though the more girls that come in and saturate the industry, the harder it becomes to make money. I see why you would think that, and I don’t disagree that the more saturated the industry the tougher the competition. But I can’t help but feel like saying things like “We don’t want more models!” “Great, another documentary that’s going to bring even more competition” and other ridiculous, whiny statements are a cop out. That’s right, I said it. Deal with it.

When did people start looking at competition like it was a negative thing? You think that the top athletes in the world got there by bitching about how there were so many other athletes that were also good at the sport, so it isn’t fair because now they don’t look as good? No, that’s ridiculous. They trained harder, they adapted to the situation, they learned the weaknesses of their toughest competitors and they turned those weaknesses into their strengths. They succeeded because the competition forced them to become better, stronger, faster. (If you’re listening to a playlist, I recommend Kanye’s Stronger for this segment.)

How about McDonalds? You think they worry themselves over how Burger King and Wendys are doing? You’re damn right they do, but they don’t sit there and bitch about it, all of those companies are constantly innovating to come out with the next best thing.

That’s just the way that the cookie crumbles, and for every time a model complains about competition, a fairy loses its wings.

What it ends up turning into is this ridiculous back and forth of models being their own worst enemy and them trying to tear down other models behind their backs. They don’t want any documentaries to come out because they are afraid that a thousand new girls will show up in the cam world and make them obsolete.

How about instead of holding each other down and hoping that the competition isn’t going to be intense, we all start to raise each other up? How about we start supporting each other, giving each other advice, helping each other make money? How about we raise the bar. Because once that bar is raised is when the industry is going to be held to a higher standard all around. You don’t like the guys that come into your room and ask what they can get for $1? If we all created strong competition, only the best would survive, and the $1 guys would eventually be non existent because the girls charging $1 would either work harder to become one of the best, or wouldn’t be good enough to stay in the industry. We set our own standards.

I understand that for some of you, that might sound harsh, and I’m not denying the fact that it is. I’m also not denying the fact that I would rather work in an industry where it’s the top 1% and it is constantly challenging me to improve my craft so I don’t fall behind, then to work in one where I get to stay stagnant and live in a delusional world where I think I’m the best around.

When I first got into the camming industry, I said that I had never met a group of women that were more supportive than my fellow cam models, and I stick by that statement today. Whether that’s because those are the only types of models that I surround myself with or because I am choosing to highlight the positives over the extreme cattiness and sabotage that can also take place… I’m not sure.

What I am sure of is how sad it makes me to see models tearing each other down instead of building each other up. Seeing models complain about not being able to make money because of what someone ELSE is doing. For the love of god ladies, stop being a victim. Realize that if other models are taking your money it’s because you have been out hustled. Work harder to improve and adapt your hustle, or choose a different career because mediocrity shouldn’t exist within a luxury service. Period.

I don’t know about all of you, but I would rather be the worst cam model out of 100 amazing ones, then the best model out of thousands of mediocre.

Let’s innovate together, and help others become the type of models that we all should be. We’ll all make more money in the long run if the bar is set to a higher standard, and the only way to

Multiple streams of income

Diversifying your income from Webcam

I consider myself an entrepreneur. In fact, I consider every cam model one. Technically, you are running your own business, and camming on a site is just an extension of that. Sure, it would be easy to log on and cam every day and have that be your sole source of income, and I’m sure that for a lot of models that is the case. There’s nothing wrong with that. However, in my opinion, it is imperative to create multiple sources of income so that you never fall to the trap of depending on a site more than depending on yourself.

Take #Streamgate2015, for example. A day (and by day I mean MONTHS) that will live in infamy for the rest of existence. Streamate glitched and crashed extremely hard back in August of 2015, (and honestly, hasn’t really recovered 100% since then.. But I digress) and guess what happened when the site was barely workable? Models freaked out. They lost their minds. They screamed, they cried, they bitched. They feared for their paychecks and the bills that they owed, yet all of a sudden weren’t sure if they were going to be able to pay. It was a mess.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to sit up on my pedestal and preach to the masses about why the models shouldn’t have been upset, because trust and believe I was right there with all of them. However, I learned a very valuable lesson. One that I take with me every day in my business, and that is that you can never have too many eggs in your basket.

It was literally the worst feeling when the site that I depended on crashed. It was extremely difficult to stay connected and to make money for around a month. It was terrifying, and there were some days where I ate nothing but ramen noodles, and yes, I admit, my electricity was even turned off. I vowed to myself that would never happen to me again. Sure, you could just start on a new camsite, but it isn’t that simple is it? You have to be approved first, and then you have to wait an average of an extra two weeks to even start receiving any money which, at that time I was not financially stable enough to do. I think I can speak for all of us when I say that it is a scary thing when you don’t know whether or not you’re going to make enough money to feed you and your family.

Part of me actually wants to thank #Streamgate2015 for happening. We survived, we prospered, and hell, my income is better than ever because of what I learned from it. My number one takeaway? Multiple Streams of Income.

I realized that in order for me to never be put into a situation like that again, I was going to have to buck the F*&% up and guarantee my own financial stability. Who knows when something like a site crash could happen again?

First, I started making clips (trust and believe, I absolutely loathe clip making) and right away I started seeing an increase in my passive income. Was it thousands? Hell no. Was it enough to pay a bill or two every month? You bet your sweet ass.

Second, I started a white label…. and then I promoted the CRAP out of it. This took a couple months to see a return on, but now I receive 2-4 checks a month in the mail of passive income from members who spend on other models.

Third, I started investing time now to make money later. By that I mean, I started to spend a lot of time (and I mean A LOT of time) on social media. I didn’t see anything from it for a while, and there were days where I would get so frustrated that I wanted to scream, but then after about 6 months of spending at least 3 hours a day on my social media presence, my ish blew up. In a BIG WAY. I can now take damn near 3 weeks off of cam if I feel like it, and sustain more than enough to pay all of my bills and live comfortably off my snapchat sales alone. (Gain followers, engage your audience, the potential for becoming brand ambassadors, spokespeople, and a brand to be reckoned with is there. You just have to invest your time to see a return.)

Fourth, I picked some model websites that I enjoy and I signed up for affiliate programs to their website. Now I can make money off of their work as well as supporting other models in the industry (which in my opinion, makes for a stronger industry as a whole.)

Finally, after all is said and done I started to take a look outside of the adult industry. Now I’m at the point where I am going to invest. That way I can watch my money make money.

So long story short, here I am, 10 months after #Streamgate2015, and I have so many sources of income hitting my bank account that it take actual effort to keep track of what I get paid and when. I feel completely financially stable, and more importantly 100% in charge of how I run my business. If a cam site isn’t working for me, I don’t stress anymore, I adapt, and the only reason I’m able to do so freely is because of branching out of my comfort zone and making sure that the only business I depend on to keep me financially stable, is my own. My advice to you is for you to do the same.

Enhancing yourself as a product.

You’re Not a Person, You’re A Product

There are a few things that happen when I go on the cam-girl forums, twitters and snapchats of the world. The first thing is that I get boobs in my face (on the social media parts, at least) lots and lots of boobs. The second thing I get is annoyed, and I mean that in the most polite way possible. Now, I’m not saying that every cam-girl annoys me by any means, but I get so unbelievably frustrated when I see them complaining about their regulars spending money on others, or how they can’t sell a product to their 60,000 followers on Twitter. Point blank, you’re not a person, you are a product and if you aren’t treating yourself that way, then therein lies the biggest problem.

I know you just read the following words in the paragraph above, but since my entire sermon in the Church of Camgirl Sales revolves around it, let’s just put it in our faces one more time.
YOU’RE NOT A PERSON. YOU’RE A PRODUCT.

You don’t need to take that literal. I mean, you do but not to the point of being a robotic, boring mess with no personality. Of course you’re going to need to have a personality and connect with people on a level that they can develop a sense of loyalty and get to know you. That’s not what I mean by that statement. What I mean is… all of that good “personal” stuff? That stuff that ropes them in and convinces them to spend, is what you’re selling. Your brains, brawn and beauty all wrapped up in a pretty package with a big damn bow on top. You are your own product, therefore you need to learn how to treat yourself as such.

My three biggest tips?

1. Create an Image and stick to it.
When you think of Ferrari what pops into your head? My guess is probably the color red. How about Pillsbury? Nascar? Kim Kardashian?
I could go on, but I think the point I’m trying to make is fairly evident. The Kardashian family is the perfect example. People can say all they want that “they are talentless” but I wholeheartedly disagree. Sure, they aren’t the same type of talent that was needed 20-30 years ago to reach the level of fame and notoriety that they’ve achieved, but it also isn’t 20-30 years ago, and it’s about time that people stopped living in the past and realized that the way consumerism works as a whole has changed. The Kardashians understand that and turned themselves into products in such an amazing way. I mean, they are literally able to sell the idea of THEMSELVES and make millions. In my opinion, that’s some talent. (If that’s not enough for you, they have talent at making money which is the talent I would pick ANY day of the week) They capitalize on the fact that they can post a single picture wearing an outfit, or talking about something and people will run out and fight to death over it in the stores. They create their own demand (which I’ll go over in another piece..which you should probably read… definitely read it. You’re gonna read it, right? LOVE ME!!!!) My point is, they understand the phrase “You’re a product, not a person” perfectly and slay with the execution. (#SlaaaaaaayMama)

I once heard a record producer give advice on how to stand out in any industry. He said that to make it in any industry people have to either be like you or want to be you. Which one are you going to be?

2. Don’t get emotionally invested.
Getting emotionally involved is such a rookie mistake and sadly I see it happen again and again. All too often there is a woe is me story from a cam-girl about how one of her best clients has been going in another girls room spending money, buying another girl presents, giving another girl attention. I’m emphasizing the word another because that’s what you should be doing, also. If your client is with someone else than #ByeFelicia, have fun, Sayonara…because guess what? You’ll find another client. Regulars come and go, that’s just the way of it. Convert someone else, move along. If they aren’t spending on you, then they shouldn’t matter to you.
Woah, woah, woah. Put away your pitchforks and let me elaborate a little. It’s natural that we are all going to like some of our regulars more than others, and form friendships. That’s honestly one of my favorite aspects of camming, it’s amazing getting to know so many different awesome people… but when you start to have expectations of your client, you become no better than a regular who starts to think they are entitled to things because of how much they have spent on you. Don’t be that guy, dude. Just don’t. If they pick up and move along, you do the same. Thanks for the memories, and focus on the future.
And finally…

3. Realize that your social media is your professional portfolio.
I’ll keep this one short and sweet. Aesthetics is an important part of what makes people like what they like and buy what they do. Every food commercial, every clothing line, every professional model is always projecting their best image on commercials, runways and in catalogues. It’s the same thing with your social media. Every picture and post that you make is what people are going to use to create their idea of who you are and what your total image is. So, before posting that pic or tweeting that tweet, make sure it’s something that you would put in a portfolio you were presenting to a job interview, or taking to a potential client. I mean really, when it comes down to it, that’s exactly what it is.

So there you have it. My sage wisdom and advice. You’re welcome. 🙂 (Disclaimer: I’m not 100% sure that I’m all that wise or really the giver of SAGE advice. But hey, it sounds pretty good eh?)

Should I go independent or Not?

Livin’ that Indy Life

Should I go the independent webcam route? Whether this is something you’ve been asking yourself or not, it’s a valid question to bring up. When first considering delving into the Independent cam world, it can be an extremely daunting task. There are so many options out there and it can almost make it seem like you’re drowning.
That’s okay, having no idea where to begin is normal.

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this in other posts or not, but I highly recommend searching around and joining cam-girl forums to learn some tricks of the trade, and be able to connect and talk with other models in the industry who can help you along if you have any questions.

Start by setting yourself up on a directory site like cammodeldirectory.com or Livecammodelshows.com. If you’re wanting to be able to charge per minute without having them pre-pay in full skyprivate.com is another option. This is a great way to start building up your clientele through the traffic that the sites have on their own.
When I finally took the plunge and jumped into going Independent, I realized that I shouldn’t have waited so damn long in the first place. Honestly, I’ve never been happier. I was a strictly Streamate girl for a long time, and when the site started to be unreliable, I decided that even though it scared the piss out of me, I was going to bite the bullet and transition as much as possible into Indy. Take control of my own destiny and all that.

I started by talking to some of my other cam girlfriends who I knew were already offering Skype shows. They knew some of the things that would make me not such a bumbling idiot the first time I attempted a show. After they gave me some tricks of the trade, I signed up for Cammodeldirectory.com. I heard great things about them having their own traffic, and figured it would be a great way to start to build up my clientele. Then I started advertising on social media, and lo and behold I got my first show!

I was crazy nervous ya’ll, I’m not even kidding. Felt like a brand new baby cam-girl all over again, but I took deep breaths, a shot of tequila, put on some gangster rap and handled that sh*t.
Truth of the matter? It was fantastic, not only did I get to keep a much higher percentage from the show so I ended up making more, but it was so freeing to not have to worry about rules of the big box site that I normally cam on. After that first show I knew that I was an Indy whore for life. I love being able to just switch my skype availability and have show offers pop up. I can watch television, read, knit, whatever the hell I want, all while I wait for someone who wants a show. Sometimes I log on my big box site and make some money while I’m waiting for a skype show to come through! (Ah! The earning potential! I can’t handle it!)

Once you’ve decided on going forward with Indy camming, it’s worth it to create a payment portal for people to book Skype shows with you in advance. Personally, I use mysecretpayments.com. (….which I’ve just started using and am LOVING it!) Setting up a payment portal gives your followers on social media an easy way to book a show with you and pay without having to jump through a million different hoops.

On top of camming on Skype, I also do a lot of Snapchat premium sales and make content to sell independently. The less I have to depend on someone else for my streams of income, the better! (I especially recommend your own payment portal if you sell extras like this; snapchat, panties, signed photos/poster/calenders etc.)

All of that being said, if you don’t have a following independent of whatever site you’re camming on, going Indy can be a struggle at first (at least until you build up your clientele) so if you do decide on dipping your toe into the wonderful pool of Indy, (which I would if I were you) I would stick it out with the site you’re on now, as well. Make it a side ho’ first, and see how you get along with each other. Just like not all cam sites are created equal, neither are cam-girls experiences with Indy. I’ve heard my fair share of stories of models that both hated and loved it. It’s really all going to come down to your personal preference. All I’m sayin’ is .. If you like expanding your money making horizons, then give it a go. What’s the worst that is going to happen?

Converting Webcam freeloaders into Customers

Converting Guys into Customers on Webcam

Convert: Cause to change in form, character or function.

Converting customers is the most important part of your job as a cam model. Without conversions you wouldn’t have anyone. Just think.. Every paying client you have ever had is a conversion. Maybe not from you, but someone else was able to convince them to start spending money. If you don’t make converting customers one of your strongest skill sets than you are absolutely not fulfilling your full potential of a sales goddess.

When you strip away all the lace, frill and dildos, that’s what your job really is. A sales job. In fact, it’s one of the most challenging sales jobs that you could have. A car salesman sells a car because people have to pay to have one. People don’t have to pay for sex. They can get it for free all over the internet and in real life, so it’s up to you to convince them to not only pay for their fap material, but to make you BE that fap material.

My number one recommendation is to always be reading. Research and read books on sales techniques, how to win arguments, psychology on how the brain works, anything that you can think of that will help mold your sales craft into a force to be reckoned with.

Here are a few pro tips to get you started:

1) The Art of Subtle Selling

It doesn’t matter how many followers you have on Twitter, if all you do is post links to your content or your cam site and expect people to just click on the link and buy it every time, you are out of your mind. People don’t want to feel like they are being told to do something. In order to get people to want to purchase your product, they have to first believe in the product. Especially when you are selling yourself, you will get a much higher conversion rate if you spend some time letting them feel like they are getting to know you. Talk with them, have inside jokes, let them into a little bit of your life so they feel like they have a connection beyond the links that you tell them to click.

From there it’s always easier to make a sale. By building connections, you are building brand loyalty, which will make you more popular in the long run. The more popular you are, the easier high volume conversions become. People want what everyone wants, and to make anyone want you, you have to be real to them.

Once you start showing your personality by talking with them, letting them see some of your day on snapchat, hanging out in your cam room, then you’ll be able to start soft selling everything without making them feel like you are pushing for a sale.

“Man, I don’t know why no one in here has gotten my tits out. Whats up with that? I know you want to see them, they’re F**cking phenomenal”

This will create the feeling of them having the idea to tip you for a flash. The key word is their. Was it really their idea? Of course not. You just created the illusion of them coming up with the thought of “Hey, why hasn’t anyone tipped her to flash us? I would definitely want to see her gorgeous, amazing, succulent breasts.” Okay, maybe they wouldn’t think it in those exact words, but you get my point.

Alright, that was a really obvious example but you get what I’m trying to say, don’t you? You don’t always have to say “Let’s go exclusive” You can be creative with it and make them think that it’s their idea. You’ll end up converting people who never would have dreamed of spending their money.

2) You Giveth and You Taketh Away

This is one of my personal favorite tricks. Back when I was a bartender I used this all the time on my bar guests and it worked flawlessly. In a cam room, it works even better.

I’m going to use snapchat as an example, but this will work in any aspect. I keep my snapchat public except for when I switch it to private settings for my premium members. I only allow my premium members to send me messages, but every once in awhile I will announce that I’m going to open up my snaps to chat.

I always get bombarded with messages, and I really just hang out with them and chat back and forth. I don’t mention anything about them buying premium, or purchasing any of my content. After we’ve gotten into the really great parts of the conversation, I close my snaps. Right before I close them I let them know that talking to them was fun and if they were a premium member they would be able to chat with me anytime they wanted, and then I let them know where they can go to buy it.

I do the same thing with Gold Shows on Streamate. I will start a countdown, but if it doesn’t hit my goal then I don’t do gold shows for the rest of the week. This way it lets the guys know that I don’t have to offer them a discounted show, and that I’ll only continue if they make sure to make it worth my while.

This method has always resulted in sales for me. You giveth and then you taketh away. They will want that sunshine to warm them up again, so they’ll pay for it now that they know what it feels like.

3) Hard Sell/Soft Sell

I like to alternate my sales techniques. I’ve messed around with a million different ways to convert new people and the one that works best for me is an on week and an off week of alternating between hard selling and soft selling. The first week I will be constantly pushing my links in their faces, reminding them about where to go and what to buy. Basically, I’m making it impossible for them to forget, opening up my snaps and chatting, running specials and deals. Then the next week I back off, and rarely mention it. Instead of telling them how to buy premium snapchat, I simply let them know that I’m switching over to premium. I’ll make comments about a new video that I’m making, or how much I love getting to read the

custom scripts I get. I’ll open up my snaps and tell people to message me if they have questions about anything, but I don’t elaborate.

By teasing with what they could have but keeping the access to it just out of their reach, almost like they have to work for it, can make them want to have it that much more. Then, when you do give out the information, people will dive for it like it’s the last drop of water in the Sahara, simply because they don’t know when they are going to get it again.

Wax on, wax off young grasshopper.

Camster Review

Camster Review

There are abundant amount of cam sites on the web & like many models, you’ll think of signing up to many of them & either using them once or using each one frequently. As a professional cam model for a few years now, I honestly recommend Camster.

The site pays 50/50 on net revenue & with a weekly payout, unlike many other sites, gives you a generous constant income. I was pleasantly surprised when I came across Camster, with the simple & understandable sign up process, within 24hrs, I was verified, signed into the main console & ready to perform on cam. The main console is easy on the eye & also very simple to understand, with a white background & the main pull out menu to the left in a deep navy blue it’s not over complicated nor is it hard to understand. All of the features & functions can be located here on a standard “top to bottom” style layout menu, making it easy for you, running your business as a camgirl, instead of wondering where to find things & work the site.

On the right of the on screen console’s the inbox, with a clearly visable red counter, so you can find messages & email from your online friends & customers. Underneath is a sharing link, easy to locate & use, with a “click to copy” button for promoting yourself online to your social media pages & in your signature in forums, this is always a plus, bringing higher earnings from your fans. Directly central in the main console, the “go online” “large green” button & above, the rates charged for private & spy shows, here you can edit to the fee you wish to charge. Camster’s the easiest to use console, and like I said, cannot stress enough how it’s so easy on the eye.

The side menu includes “Broadcast”, in both standard or HD, a “bulletin” button, locating your online messages. A “stats & earnings” page, although your latest earnings are also clearly displayed on the main dashboard, seen under the inbox on the right.There’s a photos & video section within your profile where you can profit from clips & pics, with a small charge for each. The video is not downloadable, but viewed in the user console. The upload pages to both photos & video’s underneath the “stats & earnings” button on the menu before the “blocked Regions” button. Here you can type regions you wish to block, it’s as simple as this.

Under these, the payment settings, tax & another rates button, to clearing bring up your rates you charge for private, group & spy. There’s a wish list page & you can link to your twitter social media page. Changing your model categories is located under these, and gives a choice, not too many, enough to give users the choice to find you without making it complicated. Hair color, body shape & size, likes, dislikes. A contact button for your own information is below & at the bottom of the menu list, a support button. This includes phone numbers for camster, email support & a wiki page with various “questions & answers”. Camster has a very handy “chat” button to the right of the console, making your business effortless with enquires or problems that are dealt with sufficiently & in speedy reply from a knowledgeable team.The customer service & model support from Camster’s both profession & of high standard. The team likes to help both you the model & the users, so both business & enjoyment can is accomplished in the online entertainment.

After looking through the cam console & setting everything up, you’re ready for broadcasting, this is as simple as joining. With your cam plugged in (I recommend a high quality camera, around $80 giving high quality picture & sound, remember, this is your business.) Clicking the “big green” button or the “broadcast” button on the side menu, both access a pop up page, your SD cam feed console’s now open. This console’s again both easy on the eye & simple to understand. Your cam feed display’s on the right, the users in your chatroom are underneath & the text area to the left.My only negative comment is within this area, I still cannot located the “text size or style” button & have still not changed the size of the text making it slightly difficult to read some of the users text when using a separate larger screen, other than this, going online is simple.

Once online, you’ll begin performing to users from this platform or the choice of a HD platform from a downloadable console logging into this flash installation from your pc. If you’re using a HD camera, higher than 2mb upload broadband, using the HD broadcast is recommended, giving users a higher quality image.This is using the second “broadcast HD” button on the side bar in the main console. Choosing this option, a page in the main console gives you the choice of download, a flash install into your pc, laptop or mac, this is called “Imodel”.

Once downloaded, you can login to Camster network using this program on your computer. There are no bugs & the system is very stable, as is the whole of the network & the online console.

You’ll need to login here with your username & password & once this program is opened, it uses an “adobe” flash program to transfer the higher bit rate faster & in smaller packets, with this, you need to start the cam from the new application, it’s all reasonably understandable once logged in. When online, with the huge 5 million friendly members, you’ll have no problem with traffic & a constant stream of users into your chat room. Camster’s part of a large network of cam sites since 1997, giving you more traffic & a higher profitability giving you a higher income.

Nearly all of the users are friendly as most of the direct traffic through Camster is genuine & are not just looking for a free flash. Sadly, like with all sites, you’ll always come across maybe one disrespectful user, a chancer, like I have, texting fake tips. This user was banned shortly after I notified the admin help, using the chat button on the main console. The admin support team came into my room directly & giving a tip, showing the whole room the fake tip user was not accepted, while banning the user. There’s a “ban” button in the models cam interface, allowing you to remove anyone you wish to remove from your room.With of the high traffic available from Camster, offering photo & video on your profile can be a very profitable, this is simple to do, uploading either images or video from your main console. Video can be no larger than 500mb & the images can be both amateur or professional. A choice is always good for your users to appreciate.

Camster offers both weekly & daily webcam payments options to US models through check, direct bank deposit, bank wire, Paypal, Dwolla, Payoneer & CMB paycard as payment options, again for US models which is applaudable with payment types, However for International models, Camster does lack payment options with Dwolla, Payoneer & the CMB payment card as the only options, this I find a big negative.

Pleased to say, Payonneer is simple to set up if you do not have this already & is a easy way to accept payment, with a small $3 fee, you can receive your payment into the bank within 1 to 3 business days.There’s no holdbacks for models to worry about & chargebacks are covered by Camster & there’s $1000’s daily prize money given out, available to win, making it worthwhile to go online for long length shifts, in a weekly routine.

You can create tip shows, $30 to $40 is a good set out price. Models must stick to the times & offer a good show to reap the rewards. Any shows ending early are penalized.

I honestly recommend Camster for both user & models, I score the site 9/10. The only negative points are those I mentioned, the payment types for international models, the text size in the model chat room & the one member who came in & tried to con me with the fake tip. However, the service provided from the support team of Camster was remarkable & made up for the user.

The features & functions are all fantastic, easy to use, with the simplest of usability. Camster does lack marketing tools, apart from the model referral link code. From a models perspective, the traffic size & quality of users are both good, the console’s easy to use & doesn’t slow down or hinder your computer with technical gadgets & the model resources are easy to locate with the available chat always accessible for online help & support.

Getting to know Abella Anderson

What do you normally do when you are on web cam? How do you feel when you are working?

I love my fans. Naked.com is a way for me to get one on one time with them and I am willing to do just about anything.When I am done it gives me a great sense of accomplishment and it is a great confidence booster because my viewers fill me with praise!

Are you able to easily tell new boyfriends/lovers about your work? If yes, how do they react?

They have to accept me for who I am and my job is apart of me. If they don’t like what I do, then it’s their loss but they are usually very open to it and find it very sexy.

How has it changed you in terms of your attitudes to sex and in the bedroom when you are having sex?

I am a much more open person now. I understand that each person has different fantasies and likings and I no longer get surprised by what some people may find “strange”.

What are some of the craziest fantasies that guys come up with?

Some guys like to have sex while getting dirty, like in a mud pond. It’s a stimulating experience, to get so wild.

What is your opinion on the male species after working in the industry?

Each man is different. They all have different tastes and different fantasies.

The best thing about being a webcam girl

The best thing about Webcamming is that it’s very safe. You don’t have to do anything you don’t want and on naked you can even block countries/regions where you don’t want to appear. Besides all this, there is the obvious, which is the elimination of getting any STDS.

Words of wisdom for cam models?

If you tell your fans you’re going to do something, do it. Viewers will always come back if you are constantly giving them what they want.

What is your favorite food?

My guilty pleasure is pizza. Definitely pizza.

What is something that rocks your world?

My fans. I mean, lovies. Because I love those who support me.

First thing I do when I wake up in the morning:

I check my phone! I think that’s the first thing most people do.

The last thing I do before falling asleep:
Check my phone. I know. I’m obsessed.
