Games To Play With Your Fans On Cam

There are lots of different games that you can play with your fans. If you’re not playing games, then you’re likely leaving money on the table. I can almost guarantee that for a fact! When I started playing games, it really boosted my earnings because it kept people in private chats longer. Here are some tips and game suggestions if you want to earn more money today.

Games To Play With Fans

Webcam Games For Boost Tip Money From Fans

โ€‹If you cam on a site that is set up like MyFreeCams, where you spend the majority of your time in public chat waiting for tips to reach your goal, it’s definitely a good idea to play games with your fans. Not only will this make the time go by faster, but it encourages interaction between you and your fans.

It’s fun for everyone! There are lots of different games that you can play. I’m gonna go over a few of the more popular ones in this article, but of course, you can always be creative and come up with new games that you think your fans will like.

Card Games

There are several card games that are easy to play while on cam. The first is Blackjack. When a fan of yours tips to play Blackjack with you, all you have to do is shuffle the deck, deal a card to yourself face down, deal a card to your fan face up, deal another card to yourself face up, and another card to your fan face up.

Your fan then gets to decide if they want to hit (take another card) or stay. The goal is to get as close to 21 as possible, without going over. If they go over, you automatically win. Once they’re satisfied with their hand and decide to stay, you flip over your face-down card. Now it’s your turn to hit or stay to try and beat their score.

War or High/Low, is another easy card game to play on cam. All you do is shuffle the deck, and draw a card for yourself and one for your fan. High card wins. Easy!

Dice Games

Dice games are also simple, yet fun to play with your fans. One of the most popular dice games is Spank Dice. It’s best to either use 20-sided dice or several regular dice for this game.

It’s up to you how you play it. One way is rolling the dice and spanking yourself the number of times that comes up. Another way would be if the number is odd, your fan loses and you don’t have to spank yourself. But if it’s even, you spank yourself that many times.

You can even play Yahtzee with your fans. You roll five dice and show them to your fan. They decide if they want to hold any dice and then you roll the other dice again.

Repeat letting them hold or roll dice one final time. Depending on what they end up with, give them better prizes for a better hand: three of a kind, four of a kind, full house, small straight, large straight, Yahtzee.

Wheel Spins / Bag Grab

The wheel spins or grab bag, if you don’t have a wheel, is another fun way to entertain your fans. You can put anything you want as a prize.

To make the game really interesting, you can even put bad things up as prizes. For example, start over the current goal countdown, add a certain number of tokens to the countdown, put back on an article of clothing, etc.

Hangman

Not as popular of a game, but still something to pass the time. Think of a word and draw out Hangman. When a fan tips to play, you give them a certain number of letters that they can guess per turn.

If they think they know the answer, they can tip to guess. If the word is correctly figured out before you finish drawing hangman, everyone who participated gets a prize. You can announce the prize beforehand, or make things more interesting by having it be a random draw.

Guess The Lucky Number

Pick a random number between 1 and 100 (or whatever range you want). In order to guess a number, your fans have to tip that number. So if they want to guess 13, they tip you 13 tokens.

Keep an updated list of the numbers that were already guessed so they aren’t guessed more than once. The person who tips the “lucky number” gets a prize.

Never Have I Ever

Never Have I Ever is a lot of fun! You can either buy the actual game or let your fan pick the “never have I ever” scenario. If you’ve done it, you take a sip of your drink. All of your fans can play along!

Balloon Popping

For Balloon Pop, you write different prizes on little pieces of paper and put them inside of balloons. You can make it completely random, or have certain color balloons have better prizes, and those cost more. When a fan buys one, you pick a balloon, pop it, and they win the prize inside.

Conclusion

As you can see, there are plenty of options here for games to play. If you’re seriously looking to boost your earnings, then start playing these games. Hit the party store today for some of them and watch your bank account balance jump quickly.

Cam Model’s Guide To Blogging

If you’re a cam model and you’re not blogging, then you’re leaving a ton of money on the table. I’m not talking about writing novels here, but updates for members and other cool posts. This blog post lays out the information on how to blog the right way. If you’re a cam girl that wants to succeed, then I suggest you read this.

Blogging Guide Tips

Webcam Model’s Blogging Guide

Blogging is a great tool that every cam model should be utilizing. Not only will it increase your SEO, get you more recognition and help with building a fan base when done correctly, but it also gives your fans an insight into your everyday life.

You may have noticed that a lot of guys want to get to know you on more of a personal level. Not everything always has to be sexual. When you talk about things that are happening in your everyday life, fans will feel a much stronger bond with you because they can relate. This is the key to building up a fan base of guys who come back to see you over and over again.

The Sites / Platforms

There are lots of different blog sites out there. You’ll definitely want to make sure you use one that is adult-friendly. This way you can post links to your website, clip sites, cam sites, etc., as well as naughty pictures if you choose to.

The top sites that I recommend are Tumblr, WordPress, and ModelCentro. You can use one or even all three of these sites for a blog. I would personally recommend using either WordPress or ModelCentro in conjunction with Tumblr.

Search Growth

If you have a website through WordPress or ModelCentro, you should definitely be using their blog feature. Blogs are search machines! For anyone who doesn’t know, SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization.

Essentially, it’s the process of using keywords that pertain to your niche to get free, organic traffic to your website, and helps you rank higher on search engines for those specific keywords.

For example, if your main niche is femdom, you’ll want to use that word as often as you can when you’re blogging. That way when guys go to a search engine and search for femdom, you’ll have a higher likelihood of popping up. There are many more factors to ranking high in search engines, but making all of your blog posts keyword rich is definitely an important one.

Link With Intent

Another way to increase your outreach through your blog, is by linking to and writing about your content. This is especially useful when trying to increase your SEO for your website in general.

Every time that you update with a new piece of content, you should blog about it. Make sure your blog post has these important elements: a title, H1, H2, a picture, keyword rich text that describes your content, and a link to your content. Search engines look for all of this when ranking your site. The H in H1 and H2 stands for header.

H1 should be used for the title of your post. It should be the largest text on the page and stand out the most. H2 should be used for keywords or to distinguish different sections within your blog post. If you add a picture to your blog post, the title of that picture is also important. You never want to use spaces in image titles. Instead, use dashes to separate words. I recommend naming your pictures your porn/cam name and then the title of your content.

So if I had a video called School Girl Babe, I would name my picture dirtylittleholly-school-girl-babe. Search engines look at everything when ranking you, so even naming your pictures or videos for your blog posts is important.

You can also increase your SEO by linking to other pages on your site. So if you have a ModelCentro website and are writing a blog post on your MC website, link to your other MC pages when applicable. This is easy when writing about new content. You can just link to that new content and easily increase your SEO.

Real Talk Real Life

Ok, so aside from using your blog to promote new content, it’s also a good idea to talk about your everyday life. As I mentioned earlier, this is a great way for your fans to connect with you on a more personal level.

If they feel like they can relate to you, you become more than just a sex object in their mind. They’ll respect you and want to support you. As cheesy as it may sound, this bond is actually really special. When you talk to these guys every day, you really do start to build a relationship with them.

Letting them in on more than just the sexual stuff can make you feel much more comfortable and make you enjoy your job even more. Your blog posts can be about anything, just keep them real. Maybe talk about what you did over the weekend, or if you have a big vacation planned for the future. Have any interesting stories from your past? Anything can be a writing point.

Talk and Post Socially

Whenever you make a blog post, be sure to post about it to your different social media accounts. If you have a website through ModelCentro or WordPress, use that as your main blogging site and then definitely link to it on other sites such as Tumblr. Some of the tips in this article don’t only pertain to blogs. Use these simple tips to increase the SEO to your other social media accounts as well.

Conclusion

If you’re blogging and doing the things that I’m suggesting above, then you’ll likely reach more people and grow your fanbase a lot faster than those not doing so. Trust me, when you’re a new cam model every action counts, so put in the effort to reach people and earn more money.

What To Include In Your Cam Profile

This is a very serious topic. Perhaps one of the most important topics of all. It’s all about your profile. As a cam model, your profile is so damn important. It’s the way that hundreds of thousands of cam site users can find out more about you. That said, you need to know what you must include. This article explains just that!

Cam Profile Essentials

What To Include In Your Webcam Profile

After you get approved on a camming site, but before you actually start to cam, it’s important to set up your camming profile. Your camming profile should be informative to your fans and reflect your personality.

If someone comes into your room for the first time and wants to know what you’re all about, they’re gonna check out your profile. It’s important to not only make it look pretty but make sure it describes the kind of model you are and the kinds of shows people can expect to see from you.

What to include in your cam profile

Different Site Options For Different Platforms

Some sites, like Myfreecams, let you fully customize your profile page. Other sites, such as Streamate, only let you put in text descriptions. If you’re camming on a site that only lets you put in a small amount of text on your profile, there are some very important things you should include.

Definitely be sure to describe your show a little bit. Let your fans know what you do in private compared to exclusive. Maybe mention some of your favorite things to do on cam, or things that you specialize in.

If there are things that you aren’t comfortable doing that you think you’ll get asked to do often (anal, phone, squirting, etc.), you can include that as well so you don’t get asked over and over again. If you still have extra space to type, maybe include your room rules or a small description of your personality.

Customize Your Profile

If you choose to cam on a site that lets you fully customize your profile, you can have a lot more fun! You can switch up the colors, make your own graphics and layout, use a premade layout, or even commission someone to make an eye-popping layout specifically for you.

Some models will pick a theme and revolve their profile around that (Hello Kitty, Pokemon, superheroes, etc.). Ultimately it’s up to you how to design your profile. Since you have unlimited space to add whatever you want, there are some general things that most models include.

Link To Social Media

Be sure to include the links to your social media accounts, such as Twitter, Instagram, your blog, etc. Not only will that get you more followers on your different accounts, but it also gives your fans a way to stay in touch with you when you’re not on cam.

If you have a website, you should include that link as well. You can even tell your fans that they can tip you a certain amount for a membership to your website and then you can manually add them. If the site you’re on has an offline tip option, definitely include that link on your profile page as well.

That way your fans can show their appreciation to you or purchase stuff even when you can’t be online. The same goes for your wishlist link. Include that to give your fans another way to spoil their favorite cam model. ๐Ÿ™‚

Add Video Media

If you have premade videos, you should list those on your camming profile. You can either use a screenshot from the video, a GIF, or even just a text description so your fans know what to expect in the video.

Be sure to include the price as well. If you have a group of similar videos, maybe make a discounted rate if they get all of them. You can also do this for your photosets and tangible goods.

If you sell items, include them on your profile with a description and any other important information such as what countries you ship to.

Add Rules To Your Cam Show

Since you have more space on this kind of profile, you can go into more details about the rules of your cam room, description of your shows, and general tidbits about yourself.

If you get asked a lot of the same questions over and over again, you could even add a FAQ section (similar to how I added camming FAQs here). If you’re on a site where the majority of your time is spent in public chat, it’s a good idea to have a tip menu.

Price Of Things

Include how much someone would have to tip in order for you to do something (boob flash, show feet, play with dildo, change the song, etc.). To make your most loyal fans feel appreciated, consider adding a list of your top tippers.

If you’re having a raffle, including all of the information that your fans need to know for that. And if you play any games in your cam room, list those details as well. Just be creative and list anything you think your fans might need to know!

Conclusion

Well, that wraps up everything that you need to know about your cam profile and how you should think about it, and what to add. That about sums things up. If you have any questions please reach out to me via my contact form and I’ll gladly help out.

Customs4U Review

Today’s review is of a site called Customs for you. It’s a cam site that allows models to sell content they’ve made and recorded. You’ll soon know all about it and my thoughts on this media distribution channel if you keep reading. Find out from a cam girls perspective if this is worth using.

Customs4u Review

Customs4u Review –ย  Recently Updated

Customs4U is a site where you can sell custom content and premade videos. You can also do live cam shows on the site. 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 50/60, with an average score of 8.33. The majority of their points were lost because they only offer Payoneer to cash out and they do not offer regional blocking, except for your live cam shows.

customs4u review

How Much Experience Do You Have With The Site?

I’ve been on Customs4U for about a year or so.

Features 9/10

Customs4U offers a lot of features for models to take advantage of. The first is being able to sell custom content. You get a profile page when you sign-up, so you can direct your fans from social media to your profile.

But for random customers browsing the site, they can find you a few different ways. They can search by performer, find you based on tags that you gave yourself, see premade videos that you recently uploaded, catch you while you’re doing a live cam show, or find you if you’re listed in one of the featured categories on the site (top 20 or most popular).

For custom content, you set all of your own prices per minute. You can also list that you charge extra for certain things such as videos that might get you messy, videos that would involve you having to buy props, shooting your video in HD/4K/3D, or even expedited delivery.

When you upload premade clips to the site, they show up on your profile page and on the homepage as soon as you activate them. For premade clips, you also choose your own pricing, and it can vary by clip. You can add up to 10 tags per video, add a description, put up a custom thumbnail, and submit a custom .gif preview.

The ability to do live webcam shows on the site is fairly new. It is still in beta mode, so they’re still in the process of testing everything out.

You can set your price per minute for private and group shows, turn on/off the ability to allow guests (people who are not logged into the site) to view your room, block up to four countries from viewing your cam, and add your own tags.

The different kinds of shows are free to chat, paid group chat, and private chat. There is also a tip jar where customers can tip you extra if they choose to. You don’t have to sit around in free chat and wait for customers to take you private if you don’t want to.

At any time you can change your settings to put you in private and then you’ll get paid when customers enter your private room.

I Hate The Tag Feature

My one complaint about the site is its tag feature. On most sites, they have predefined tags that you can choose from and you select which ones apply to you. Then customers can search only by those specific tags.

But on Customs4U, you are able to set any tag that you want. This sounds like a good idea in theory, but I find it kind of frustrating.

You have to think of every single tag that would apply to you in hopes that you word it exactly like someone searching for something specific would word it. Coming up with every single tag that applies to you can be very time-consuming.

You keep a large percentage on Customs4U. For customs and premade clips, you keep 70%. For live cam shows, you keep 60%. And for tips/tributes, you keep 75%.

Profits & Traffic 9/10

Customs4U gets a decent amount of traffic. It of course helps for you to advertise on social media that your fans can buy custom and premade clips from you on the site, but they bring in a good amount of organic traffic as well.

Uploading premade videos often and doing live cam shows on the site will definitely increase your sales and get you more exposure in general on the site.

I’ve noticed that customers on the site are very generous. Almost every time I’ve made a custom sale, the customer has come back afterward and given me an extra tip. And many have been returning customers.

Ease Of Using & Navigating The Site 9/10

The site is very easy to use and figure out. The different tabs are all pretty self-explanatory, but they also provide in-depth explanations of each section of the site.

They make it very easy for you to figure out and you’ll be navigating the site like a pro within your first day. My only complaint would again be the ways tags are set up. I feel the site would be easier if there were predefined tags for models to choose from.

Payments & Cashouts 7/10

Cashing out on Customs4U is easy, and you can request a payout twice a month. Right now though you can only cash out via Payoneer, and the minimum payout is $20.

You can choose either a standard payout or an express payout. Standard payouts are sent to you within 2 weeks from the time you make the request.

Express payouts are made within 3 days but generally are sent out within 24 hours. There is no fee for a standard payout, but an express payout will cost you 5% of the total payout.

Privacy Protection & Geo-Blocking 6/10

Unfortunately, Customs4U does not offer any form of regional blocking except during your live cam shows. When you’re live on cam, you can block up to four countries.

There is no option to block by state, city, or zip code. But your actual profile page is visible to anyone who goes on the site. They do not offer any way for you to block people from certain regions from viewing your profile page.

This may be a big concern for anyone who’s trying to keep their job a secret from family members and/or friends. Some models block the city or state that they live in, but you cannot do that on Customs4U. Any premade videos that you upload to the site will also be visible to everyone.

Although they definitely lack in geo-blocking, they excel in privacy protection. None of your personal information will ever be given out to customers or third parties.

Customer Service & Support 10/10

The customer service and support team at Customs4U is fantastic! I’ve chatted with them several times over the past year and they’ve always been very helpful. Their staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They are very quick to reply, usually within the same day.

Conclusion

Customs4U is a good site with lots of features and a decent amount of traffic. I feel like it’s worth the time to set up a profile on there, upload some premade clips, and set up all the info for customers to order custom content from you. Especially if you take the time to advertise on social media, you can definitely make a decent amount of money on the site.

Other Reviews For Cam Girls That You Might Like

Here’s a list of some other reviews that you might like. As a cam girl, I know that I value this info and I believe you will too!

FreeOnes Review (For Models)

If you’ve never heard of Freeones, it’s known worldwide for having a massive pornstar and cam model directory. Today I’m going to cover all the cool things that I love about this website and why you might consider submitting yourself as a model on this directory. Here’s my official review of Freeones.com.

Freeones Review

Freeones.com Site Review

FreeOnes is best described as a porn directory and forum, but they have tons of different features. The site can be a great promotional tool for cam models, amateur models, and porn stars.

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 49/60, with an average score of 8.16.

They lost the majority of their points because they only offer Paxum to cash out in the United States and wire transfers for international models and because they don’t offer regional blocking on the site.

Freeones.com Review

Free Ones Review and Q & A Session

How Much Experience Do You Have With The Site?

I’ve been on FreeOnes for almost 4 1/2 years.

Features 10/10

As I already mentioned, FreeOnes is largely a porn directory and forum, but they have so much more to offer than just that! I go into more detail about many of their features later in this article, so be sure to keep reading the other sections as well.

They have a very large forum with over 9 million posts and over 748,000 members. You can create your own thread to promote yourself, chat with other members and even other models, and take part in contests that members and staff hold.

Occasionally the staff will hold a contest and they let you, as a model, decide if you want to offer a prize. This is a great way to gain exposure. You can offer trial memberships to your website or even longer memberships.

Often times the members who win will like your site so much that they decide to stick around! It also just helps to get your name out there.

If you’re a member of the site, you’re given a free blog. You can post pretty much anything you want on your blog, so be sure to use it wisely to promote yourself.

You can also submit teaser videos and photosets that FreeOnes will post on the homepage of the site to gain you some exposure, have your website reviewed, and open your own content store. I go into more detail on all of these in the Profits & Traffic section below.

Profits & Traffic 8/10

FreeOnes in itself gets a lot of traffic. The trick is using them correctly to get traffic. If you have your own website, you should definitely submit it to FreeOnes for review.

The five main categories that they rate your site on are amount of content, navigation & browsing, extras, price vs quality, and quality of content. Make sure you brush up on all of these before submitting your site so that you can get a higher review.

But regardless of what score they give your site, you’ll still get exposure. They post all of their reviews on the main page for a couple of days, and then your review page will still be accessible through the main Reviews section.

Another way to draw attention to yourself and earn some extra money is by submitting sample videos and photosets to FreeOnes. You can submit as often as you like through their transfer page. The file(s) can be sent to adam at freeones.com. Be sure to watermark your content with your website address or the link to your camming profile.

Once the files have been received, you’ll get a confirmation email. Depending on how much content they have in queue, it usually takes a couple of weeks before you’ll see your content posted on the site. But once it is, you’ll be on the main homepage for a bit, and the link will be added to your personal bio page.

You can check out mine here as an example.

You can also open your own personal model store where you can sell your premade videos and photosets. I go into more detail about this in the Payments & Cashouts sections below.

When you upload new content to your store, it gets posted on the main homepage for a period of time, which helps get you exposure. They also pick a random active model store every day to feature on the homepage. So be sure to keep your store active and update frequently.

The final way to earn money and gain exposure through FreeOnes is on the forum. Remember your etiquette lesson, ladies! Be sure to get yourself approved as an OCSM (Official Checked Star Member) as soon as you can.

This will highlight you on the forum, and get you a lot of extra attention. Once approved, it’s a good idea to start your own thread. Start off with a couple of pictures, and an introduction, and post your main links.

Check back frequently to respond to messages, hold fun little contests, post pictures, chat about your life, or update your fans on new things you have going on. The personal touch will help fans relate to you, and make them want to support you and your career.

Ease Of Using & Navigating The Site 9/10

There is a lot to take in when you first visit FreeOnes, which is why I gave them a 9 in this category. The site is actually organized very well though, so even though there are a lot of links and information, it’s fairly easy to find your way around the different sections.

The main sections you’ll want to focus on are the forum for creating your own thread to promote yourself, your model store dashboard to sell your premade content, and the transfer page to submit videos and photosets that they can use on the site to promote you.

Payments & Cashouts 7/10

Every FreeOnes credit is worth $.01. You can earn one free credit every day by logging out and back into the site. You can also open a personal store on the site where you can sell your premade videos and photosets. If you’re in the United States, the only payout option is Paxum.

The minimum payout is $100 and there is a $1 fee. If you’re an international model, you can cash out by wire transfer. The minimum payout is $200 and there is a $30 fee. The default percentage that you earn per sale is set at 65%. You can request a higher payout once every 3 months.

If you’re a big FreeOnes fan, you can also trade in your credits for items in the myFO Shop. Items include t-shirts, tank tops, bikinis, panties, baseball caps, and more. Once you’re an established member of the site, you can email support and ask for a welcome package. It usually includes a FreeOnes t-shirt, panties, and a DVD. In return, they ask that you submit a photo gallery and a video to the site wearing the gear.

Privacy Protection & Geo-Blocking 5/10

As with all established adult sites, your privacy is very important to the FreeOnes staff. None of your personal information will ever be given to fans. But Free Ones only gets half credit in this category because they don’t offer any form of regional blocking. Since the site is more a directory and forum than it is for selling content, that’s the reason they don’t offer geo-blocking. You can, however, do a few little things to help protect your privacy.

First off, if you don’t want to be listed in the public directory, you don’t have to be. Fans are able to submit girls, but if you find yourself in the directory, you can always request to have yourself removed. As far as your profile for the forum goes, you can adjust the settings so that everyone can view the different sections, only registered members can view it, only your contacts can view it, or only those on your friend’s list can view it.

This adds a little bit of privacy. But if you’re at all concerned about someone from your hometown finding you on the site, it’s best not to use it at all since none of the things I mentioned will 100% block someone from finding you.

Customer Service & Support 10/10

The FreeOnes customer service and support staff are amazing! Out of all the sites I’ve worked with, they have some of my favorite staff members!

Everyone is incredibly nice, supportive, informative, and quick to reply to any questions or concerns you have. They are all very personable as well, so not every conversation has to be all business.

Final Conclusion: FreeOnes Is Awesome

I love FreeOnes! I’ve made some great friends through the forum and the staff members of the site. I’ve also made some lifelong fans who follow and support me in everything that I do. FreeOnes offers so many great opportunities for exposure to models, so they’re definitely worth checking out!

Holding Raffles And Giveaways

Today’s article covers everything you need to know about raffles and giveaways. This is a good way to gain traction with your camming profile and social media followers. You’ll know what you need to do in order to boost things for you.

Raffle and Giveaways

Tips On Holding Raffles & Giveaways For Fans

Holding raffles and giveaways is a really fun way to engage with your fans and earn extra money. It’s always a good idea to come up with fun new ways for your fans to interact with you, and raffles or giveaways are a win/win for you and your fans!

You’ll earn extra money for each person that enters, and your fans will not only have a good time watching and participating in the whole process, but also have some friendly competition and playful interactions with each other.

When you go to give out your prizes to the winners, it’s awesome to see how excited and appreciative they are. You’ve now made someone else’s day that much better, and your pockets fuller!

Go Live!

One of the best places to hold raffles and giveaways is when you’re live on cam. These raffles and giveaways generally draw the most attention and are the most fun for both you and your fans since everything is happening live right in front of them.

On sites like Myfreecams where your fans can leave you tips while you’re offline, you can even make money from your raffles and giveaways while you’re away! To increase the odds of people entering while you’re offline, some models will give extra tickets to those who enter when they’re not on camera.

Stores

Although not nearly as interactive, you can also hold raffles and giveaways on sites where you have a storefront. ManyVids, Cam Model Store, and Extralunchmoney are a few good examples.

All you have to do is create an item, put in the details (how long it’s gonna last, what the prizes are, cost per entry, etc.), and explain that every time they purchase that item, they’ll get one entry into your raffle.

Announcing Winners

You can then announce the winners on social media, make a video of you drawing the winners, or even jump on cam and do the drawing live.

If you have multiple storefronts on different sites, you can list your raffle on all of the individual sites and combine the entries. Just make sure you write on the tickets (or whatever you’re using) what site they bought the entry on so you can easily get in contact with the winners.

Tracking Entries

That takes us to the next part… how to keep track of entries. Some models, me included, like to use actual raffle tickets and write usernames on them. I just think it adds to the excitement when I draw a ticket and can immediately hold it up to the camera and the winner can see his/her name.

You can get tickets for around $6 on Amazon. These are the ones I use. You can, of course, also just use paper to write usernames on if you don’t want to be so fancy. ๐Ÿ˜›

If you get a lot of entries into your raffles, you may not want to take the time to write them all out. So a good alternative is an Excel spreadsheet. You can purchase tickets on Amazon that have unique numbers on each ticket.

Use A Spreadsheet

Start a spreadsheet with the first ticket number and use the fill option to put the rest of the numbers in. Then when someone enters, put their username in the spreadsheet the number of times they entered and put the tickets with the correlating numbers in a hat. When you go to draw the winners, just match the ticket numbers up with the usernames in your spreadsheet.

Amazon Wishlist Them

Another fun way to hold raffles is through your Amazon wishlist. I like to create a new wishlist and put a certain number of gifts from my main wishlist on it. I randomly pick one item to be the grand prize item.

I tell my fans that they get a prize for every item they purchase, but an extra special prize if they purchase the grand prize item. I get a lot of engagement from these kinds of raffles and my fans seem to enjoy them. As long as you’re only accepting adult-friendly payment processors, you can even hold raffles strictly on social media.

Conclusion

The prizes that you offer for your raffles are completely up to you. Some popular prizes include custom content, videos, pictures, Skype, website memberships, Snapchat access, used panties, autographed photos, gift baskets, and baked goods. Now that you know what to do for raffles and giveaways, I strongly suggest taking action on them!

Keeping Your Fans Interested

As a cam model, you have one very important job and that’s keeping your fans engaged. Sounds easy, right? WRONG. That said, it’s not impossible. If you’re looking for ways to keep your fans interested in your shows and what you have to say in general, then this article is for you.

How To Keep Your Fans Truly Interested

โ€‹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 workday will go by much faster and be much more enjoyable.โ€‹

Look Good & Play Your Role

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.

Communicate

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.

Go Free

Your workday will fly by when there are 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.

Move Around

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.

Stay Focused

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.

Last Tip

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.

Conclusion

Well, that wraps things up. If you’re still unsure what to do, please reach out to me for more information. I’ll do my best to assist wherever possible. Good luck and keep the fans entertained!

Tips For Shooting Professional Quality Amateur Content

If you’re a cam model, then you really need to understand the ins and outs of creating content. Shooting is essential for this type of model and knowing how to shoot high-quality amateur content will help boost your earnings. This advice should help you build up your content quicker and with more quality.

Shoot Amateur Content

Advice On Shooting Amateur Content

Even though you may be shooting all of your own content, or have a friend/significant other helping you out, it’s important to make your content look professional. With 4K and 3D videos out now, you definitely should at least be shooting your content in 1080p HD. Heck, some people are shooting in UHD aka ultra-high-definition even.

Resolution Matters

You are selling yourself, after all, so you want to make sure your fans can actually see you in good resolution. Have you ever been streaming a video online or watching Netflix when the quality drops?

Everything gets dark, grainy, and blurry. The sound quality may even drop. No one likes that. And the same thing goes for watching porn.

Real Feel Must Remain

Amateur porn is huge right now. The vast majority of guys out there like the “real feel” you get with amateur porn as opposed to produced porn. It comes across as more believable and doesn’t feel forced.

With amateur porn, the person watching it can often put themselves into the situation, and that’s a big part of the appeal. But just because it has the word amateur in it, doesn’t mean it has to be shitty quality.

Poor Quality Is A Turnoff

Even if a guy really likes your style and the kind of content you make, he’s likely to move on to another model who shoots similar content if your quality is bad.

Upgrading your equipment may seem expensive, but it will definitely pay off. You’ll not only notice an increase in premade content sales, but also in custom sales.

Camera Equipment Matters

If you upgrade your webcam to HD, you’ll see an increase in the number of guys in your cam shows. As I said, they want to really be able to see you… all of you… clearly! So upgrading to better equipment really is a must nowadays.

One of the first things you should consider upgrading is your lighting. You can get a good, professional lighting set on Amazon for around $50.

Even if you can’t afford to upgrade your other equipment right away, just getting better lighting will really make a difference in the overall appearance of your videos, pictures, and webcam shows.

Make sure you check out my lighting guide for placement tips and tricks to really get the most out of your lighting equipment.

Upgrade Your Webcam Too

If you aren’t already using a webcam that can capture full 1080p HD video, I’d definitely recommend upgrading. On some cam sites, your ranking is determined partly by the quality of your stream.

So using an HD webcam can really boost your placement on the site. HD webcams not only make your video stream look better, but they increase the sound quality as well.

You’ll be able to do more in your shows because your fans will still be able to clearly hear you even if you step back away from the camera or move around a lot.

Close Ups

I get requests for close-ups during my cam shows on a daily basis. If your webcam doesn’t capture HD video, your close-up shots are gonna look blurry and grainy.

In fact, your overall cam stream will look grainy, dark, and sometimes off-color. With most models camming in HD, it’s especially noticeable to customers who frequent cam sites.

They’ll immediately notice that your quality is lower than other models, and may not even give you a chance. If you’re looking for a webcam that shoots in full 1080p HD, I list a couple of options here.

But basically, the two most popular webcams are currently the Logitech C920, which will run you about $70, and the Logitech Conference Cam BCC950. This cam goes for about $180. The main difference between the two is that the BCC950 comes with a remote so you can remotely control the movement of your camera and use the remote to zoom in and out.

Recording Stuff

The next most important upgrade is your camcorder. If you shoot custom content or videos to sell on your website or on clip sites, you’ll definitely want to get a camcorder that shoots in HD.

A decent camcorder will run you between $180-$300. The Sony HDRCX240/B Video Camera is a decent option if you’re looking to stay on the cheaper side of the spectrum. It captures video in 1920×1080 resolution and is lightweight and easy to use.

Although a good option, I’ve noticed an issue with this camera. Even with professional lighting, the video can be a bit dark. If you’re able to shoot outdoors or in natural lighting, it looks much better. But pretty much anything shot indoors won’t be as clear or bright as it should be.

With that said, it’s still a really good option, and even though things aren’t as clear as they could be, it still gets decent shots: both far away and close-ups.

Another Option

A better, but more expensive option, is the Canon VIXIA HF R700 Camcorder. This camcorder will run you about $300 on Amazon. It also shoots in 1920×1080 resolution, is lightweight and easy to use. But the video clarity and brightness is much better than the Sony cam. If you shoot a lot of videos and can afford it, I’d definitely recommend this cam.

Camera Upgrades

The final thing that I would recommend upgrading is your camera. I’m mentioning it last because it isn’t as important for some models. Many focus on camming and don’t really have the need for a professional camera. And a lot of models will just use their phones.

But if you have a website where you post photo sets too often, or if you get a lot of custom picture requests, I’d recommend getting a DSLR camera. I’ll warn you ahead of time, these aren’t cheap.

It’s recommended that you buy several different lenses, which are also quite pricey, so that you can capture good quality close-up shots, shots from further away, motion shots, etc. I personally use the Canon EOS 60D with 18-135mm lens. This camera is great!

I love everything about it… except for maybe the price. With the lens, it’s gonna run you about $1,080 on Amazon. I mainly focus on full-body shots, and this lens is perfect for that.

But if you do a lot of close-ups, you’ll need to invest in a lens that’s specifically for that. This camera can even record video. It’s not as good as an actual camcorder, mainly because it doesn’t have an auto-focus.

So if you move positions or get closer/further away from the camera, the whole video may turn out blurry.

Tell Them What Tools You Use

When talking to potential customers about shooting custom content for them, one of the first questions they’ll ask is what equipment I use and if I shoot in HD/high-resolution.

When I tell them what I use, many say how relieved they are to hear that and tell me about previous bad experiences they had with other models not shooting with good quality equipment.

So upgrading to HD is definitely important and will most definitely increase your sales. You’ll also be able to charge more for your content because the quality will be better.

Conclusion

That’s everything you need to know about upgrading your tools for creating content that consumers will love. I know it sounds expensive, but truth be told, you need to invest in yourself, and your equipment if you want to truly be successful today as a webcam model.

Using Tube Sites To Promote Yourself For Free

If you’re not promoting yourself as a cam girl, then you’re leaving money on the table. Today I’ll cover the basics when it comes to using tube sites for promoting yourself. The best part is that this is absolutely free to do and a solid brand-building opportunity for anyone who wants to grow their personal brand as a model. No sense in waiting, let’s just dive right into this…

Tube Sites

Tube Site Promotion – The Facts

Despite what you might think, tube sites can be a great promotional tool for cam models. The big tube sites get thousands upon thousands of hits to them every single day… that means exposure for you! If you look at free porn tubes as free publicity, and not as negative sites for guys to watch free/stolen porn, you’ll quickly see the positive side to it.

There is, of course, a right way and a wrong way to go about getting exposure using tube sites. If you find your content on a site without your permission, you can have it taken down, especially if whoever uploaded it didn’t watermark it for you. What you should be doing is creating accounts yourself on all of the big tube sites so that you can be in complete control of what content you add.

List of Porn Tubes To Get Started

Most of the major tube sites have some kind of content partner program or amateur payment program. Pornhub, RedTube, xHamster, Modelhub, XVideos, and YouPorn are good places to start.

Basically, all you have to do is create an account (it’s a good idea to make your username be your stage name), and upload whatever content you feel comfortable with (some models will do a few full videos, some might cut out the orgasm part of the video, it’s up to you), and wait for the payments and traffic to start rolling in!

You get paid based on the number of views your content gets since the tube sites will put ads on whatever you upload. Also, be sure to watermark anything you post with your website address or camming profile link.

This will help generate you traffic, increase your fan base, and prevent your content from being stolen off of the tube site and put who-knows-where on the internet.

YouTube

Some models use YouTube to promote themselves. It works for some and not for others because of YouTube’s strict policies. If you get reported by even one person, they may remove your content or your entire account.

If you do decide to use YouTube, don’t post any nudity, and don’t watermark any NSFW links. It’s best to make your username your stage name and let people find you that way.

Personally, I don’t use YouTube. I’ve found it to be a waste of time, especially since there are adult tube sites already out there. But feel free to give it a try if you want!

You’ll definitely want to put together some promo banners and profile pictures to use on the tube sites.

When you sign-up on the tube sites and go to edit your profile, they’ll usually let you know what size to make the banners. Just crop down a few of your pictures to that size, add your link, and upload them.

Choose wisely which clips you want to upload to the tube sites. I think it’s best to post clips that are within your specific niche and really showcase what your content is all about.

Chaturbate Review

So many models are using the infamous Chaturbate.com site to stream their live shows. That’s why I felt it was imperative for me to cover the ins and outs of it today. This review will cover all things Chaturbate and it’s a must-read for both models and consumers.

Chaturbate Review – Full Rundown

Chaturbate is a live cam site, similar to Myfreecams. 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 an almost perfect 59/60, with an average score of 9.83. They only lost one point in the profits and traffic section because it can be difficult to make a lot of money when you first start out since there are so many other performers.

Chaturbate Review

Features 10/10:

Chaturbate offers a lot of features to its performers. One of the unique features that they offer is apps and bots. You can create your own, or choose from the hundreds that they already offer.

They basically allow you to customize your chat room experience and make things easier for both you and your fans. All of the existing bots and apps are fully customizable, so you can make any edits to them that you want.

There are different kinds of chats on Chaturbate. The main one is a free chat. In free chat, most models will set a goal and say what they’ll do when that goal is reached (remove an article of clothing, blow job show, cum show, oil show, shower show, etc.).

Anyone in your chat room can view these shows and choose to tip you at any time. You can also offer private shows. You choose your own per minute rate for these.

These are basically one-on-one shows between you and a paying fan. Private shows can be spied on, and you also set your own per minute rate for those spying.

If a member is spying on one of your private shows, they will only be able to watch, not chat or hear sound.

You can upload photosets and videos to sell on your profile. You can even start your own fan club on Chaturbate! You set your own price that fans have to pay in order to join.

While they’re a member, they will have unlimited access to all of your photos and videos that you uploaded to the site. You can also easily add the link to your Amazon wishlist on your profile page.

Chaturbate allows you to sell items on their site, but you can only accept payment through them for these items.

If you’re caught accepting any other form of payment, you’ll be banned. The only sites you cannot link to or mention on Chaturbate are other sites with live broadcast capabilities. This includes Skype as well. Don’t give out your Skype ID.

If you find that your content from Chaturbate is being used on another site, you can request a DMCA takedown. If you contact the support team on Chaturbate and let them know the site you found your content on, they will help you get it removed.

Profits & Traffic 9/10:

Chaturbate is one of the most popular live cam sites out there. They are currently ranked in the top 350 sites globally for traffic.

The earning potential is endless once you build up a decent following. Chaturbate allows anyone to cam on their site. Couples (whether straight or gay) and female models generally earn the most amount of money, but the top solo male models earn a decent amount too.

Since there are so many performers on Chaturbate, it may take a while for you to get noticed. But don’t give up. Try to be as unique and personable as possible.

Ease Of Using & Navigating The Site 10/10:

Visiting Chaturbate for the first time as a registered member, I found the site fairly easy to navigate. It was easy to find where to go to start broadcasting, and editing my profile was simple as well.

I didn’t actually broadcast myself, but from just viewing the page, I could see that everything is organized and easy to figure out.

The way the chat rooms are set up is similar to other token-based sites, so it won’t take you long at all to figure out if you have any previous experience on other cam sites.

Payments & Cashouts 10/10:

On Chaturbate, you earn $0.05 per token you’re tipped. Payment periods run from the 1st of the month until the 15th and from the 16th to the end of the month.

You will need to go to your Token Stats page and transfer your tokens into cash in order to cash out.

Tokens transferred on the 1st-15th will be sent out by the 22nd and tokens transferred on the 16th-31st will be sent out by the 7th.

They currently offer five different payment methods. You can choose from check by mail, direct deposit (US only), wire transfer, Payoneer, or Paxum.

They also have a newer daily payouts feature available to US residents. Daily payouts are processed Monday-Friday at 1:00 AM MST.

In order to be eligible for daily payouts, you must have already received two payments from Chaturbate.

Daily payouts have a minimum of $20, check by mail and Payoneer have a minimum of $50, Paxum has a minimum of $100, check my FedEx has a minimum of $200, and wire transfers have a minimum of $1,000.

Daily payouts have a $3.95 processing fee, wire transfers have a $25 processing fee in the US and $45 internationally, checks sent by FedEx have a $40 processing fee in the US and $80 internationally, Paxum’s processing fee is $0.50, and Payoneer’s is $1. There is no processing fee for checks by mail or direct deposit.

Privacy Protection & Geo-Blocking 10/10:

Privacy protection and regional blocking are top-notch on Chaturbate. You never have to worry about any of your personal information getting leaked by the company.

As far as regional blocking goes, you can block by state and/or country. You can also choose whether to list your cam on the homepage or not, require a password to view your cam, and even not allow specific genders from viewing your cam (men, women, transsexuals, or couples).

If you decide to require a password to view your cam, be aware that the people you give the password to could potentially share it with others.

Customer Service & Support 10/10:

Chaturbate has an extensive support page with all of the information you need to know to get started.

I’ve personally never cammed on Chaturbate before, but I was easily able to find all of the information for this article on their support/FAQ page.

If you can’t find an answer to your question or issue on the FAQ page, you can also use their contact form to get in touch with a staff member for assistance.

Wrapping Things Up

Chaturbate is a great site to cam on! They offer their performers lots of features to help you succeed and make the most amount of money possible. They get a ton of traffic every single day, which gives you the potential to earn a lot of money!
