CamSoda Review Written By Models For Models

Camsoda.com is one of the most popular camming platforms on the planet. I’ve been using it for years and have recently decided to update my review of the platform. That said, if you’re a cam girl, then you will want to read this for sure. Find out everything about Cam Soda and why many models choose this as the platform to make tons of cash chatting live.

Camsoda Reviews

Camsoda Review

CamSoda is a newer, but popular live cam 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 56/60, with an average score of 9.33. They excelled in every category, really only losing a few points for being so new and still having things to work on.

Features 8/10

CamSoda is still new, so there is room for improvement. But with that said, they still have some great features in place to help models earn money. Of course, the main point of the site is live cam shows. They make it easy for you to get started broadcasting yourself.

All you need is a decent laptop or desktop computer, a fast internet connection (preferably wired in), and a webcam. You will also need a valid photo ID and a clear picture of yourself holding your ID next to your face. This is used as a verification process when you first create your account and is needed for account approval.

CamSoda is a token-based cam site. This means the currency used on the site is tokens. You are paid $0.05 for every token you’re given by fans. This makes 20 tokens equivalent to $1.00. Like Myfreecams, most models collect tokens by having countdowns until they do certain things (remove bra, remove panties, oil show, cum show, etc.).

You can also do private shows. The default rate for private shows is set at 30 tokens per minute, which comes out to $1.50/minute. But you can change your rate to whatever you’re most comfortable with. When you’re in a private show, members can spy on the show. They won’t be able to chat, just watch. The default rate for spy shows is 12 tokens per minute or $0.60/minute.

Besides doing live cam shows, there are other ways you can earn money on CamSoda… even when you’re not online! You can sell premade photosets and videos on your profile. You set all of your own prices. If you use ChatStar, which is an adult phone service, you can list your ChatStar link on your profile as well. CamSoda also lets models link to their Amazon wishlist right from their profile. Fans are able to go to your wishlist and spoil you that way.

CamSoda wants you to be healthy, which is why they created a Wellness Program. Models are eligible for the Wellness Program after they’ve been on the site for 6 months or more. Models who gross $3,500 – $6,999 on a monthly basis and provide proof of health insurance will receive a $65 monthly bonus. Models who gross over $7,000 on a monthly basis and provide proof of health insurance will receive a $125 monthly bonus.

CamSoda Review

Profits & Traffic 8/10

As more and more models have begun to make the switch to CamSoda, Cam Girls on their site have reported their traffic has greatly increased. Some big-name porn stars have been featured on the site recently, which is great for getting more people to sign-up. Brandi Love, Dakota Skye, Tory Lane, and more have really helped launch the site and grow their traffic.

CamSoda is also on top of its social media game. They have a Twitter account with over 24K followers and growing! They frequently do shoutouts for models who cam on their site and will retweet you if you tag them in a tweet.

As I mentioned in the features section, there are other ways for you to make money on CamSoda besides just doing live cam shows. You can also sell your photosets and videos, list your Chatstar profile, and have your Amazon wishlist on your profile.

Ease Of Using & Navigating The Site 10/10

CamSoda is easy to use on both the model’s end and the user’s end. I’ve browsed the site, but I never actually cammed on it before. So to get a feel for the model’s side of things, I signed up. The sign-up process was quick and easy.

You fill out some basic info, “sign” an electronic agreement, submit your photo ID and headshot holding your ID, and that’s it! I was done within 5 minutes and told that account approval takes about 24 hours.

Once approved, I scoped out the Dashboard. It has everything you need to get your profile and cam show set up, and it’s super easy to navigate and figure out.

The site is equally as easy to use for the guys browsing models on the site. They can easily access your room, chat with you, view your profile, etc.

Payments & Cashouts 10/10

CamSoda offers several different payout methods. The first way you can get paid is by a check in the mail. There is no fee associated with a check, and the minimum payout is $0. You can also choose to have funds directly deposited into your bank account through ACH/bank transfer.

There is also no fee and the minimum payout is $0. The third way to get paid is Paxum. For Paxum, there is also no fee and the minimum payout is $0. The final way to get paid is by wire transfer. This is for both international (non-US) and US models. There is no fee, but the minimum payout is $500. Payments go out every single week.

Types of Live Cams on Cam Soda

CamSoda offers a wide range of Live Cams as well as Streaming Life Cams on their site. Some of the most popular cam rooms seem to be their Milf Cams and Voyeur Cams.

Privacy Protection & Geo-Blocking 10/10

This is top notch when it comes to privacy protection and geo-blocking. You can rest assured that their site is secure and none of your personal information will get leaked. As far as regional blocking goes, you are able to block by state and/or country.

This is good for models who are trying to prevent people they know from finding out what they do and viewing their cam. If you have a specific state or country blocked, no one accessing CamSoda from that area will be able to view your cam or your profile.

Customer Service & Support 10/10

I personally haven’t contacted support for anything, but I’ve heard from other cam models on the site that the support team is quick and knowledgable. If you have a question about something or you notice a bug on the site, they are quick to answer you and/or fix the problem.

Offering Adult Skype Shows For Money

Skype is a great platform for offering live adult shows. Some models have reservations about using Skype because they’re scared of getting ripped off. But there are adult-friendly payment processors out there that you can use to prevent getting scammed.

Skype Sex Shows

Profiting From Selling Skype Shows

The first is SkyPrivate, and they are a great choice to go with. You can use SkyPrivate to charge your fans per minute for Skype shows. All you have to do is download and install their plugin. It counts the minutes you’re on Skype with each customer and bills them per minute.

There’s also the option for the customer to prepay for a show and send you the full payment beforehand. If it’s done that way, you’re responsible for ending the call after the agreed-upon time.

Pay Per Minute

You choose your own per minute rate and can change it at any time. You can also set it up so that different customers are charged different prices. This can be useful if you have a customer who does frequent shows and you want to offer them a discounted price.

Aside from just the payment processing part, their platform shows you up to the minute statistics. They also create a profile page for you that you can use to advertise on social media. They have a built-in widget to create promo banners too. When you first sign-up with SkyPrivate, you keep 75% of everything you make. But you can keep up to 80% by referring paying members or models.

Paxum

The next option you can use to accept payments for your Skype shows is Paxum. They’re similar to PayPal, but they’re adult-friendly. Getting started with them is easy, and cashing out is easy as well. They charge a withdrawal fee, but that is the only charge associated with them.

To receive your payment via check, there is only a $5 fee. To withdraw via wire transfer, there is a $50 fee. I’ve always received my payments by check, and have never had a problem. They generally get to me within 5 days of cashing out.

Some Sites Allow Skype

Some camming sites, such as Myfreecams, let you advertise on their platform that you do Skype shows. You can charge your customer the currency on that camming site beforehand, and then do the Skype show either right away or whenever you and your customer are both free. Putting it on your camming profile that you do Skype shows and mentioning it occasionally while you’re on cam is a great way to get the word out there about your Skype shows.

Say NO To Paypal

One thing you never want to do is accept PayPal. They are not adult-friendly and your account will be permanently banned the second they find out what you’re doing. Any funds you have in your account will be held for months before you can withdraw them. And PayPal will not let you create a new account with them.

Besides that, you can easily get scammed if you use PayPal. Your fan can pay for a show, do the show with you, and then call their bank and ask for a chargeback. Since you can’t prove what you were offering (since anything adult is against PayPal’s TOS), your customer will get his money back and you will have done that show for free.

Conclusion: Skype Sex Shows Pay Great

When done correctly, offering adult Skype shows can be very profitable. A lot of guys prefer Skype over other camming platforms because it feels more personal. Also, the video quality is often better and there isn’t a delay in sound.

Guide To Getting Spoiled With Amazon Wishlists

​As a way to show appreciation for your work, fans will often want to spoil you with items off of your wishlists. There are several different websites that offer wishlists. Most include both sexual items (toys, lingerie, etc.) and everyday items that you may want. Some even let you pull items from any website you want and add them to your wishlist.

Amazon Wishlist Advice

Amazon Wishlist & Other Wishlists Models Must Know All About

The first wishlist site is Amazon.​ They have an incredibly wide variety of items that you can add to your wishlist: toys, lingerie, camming equipment, lighting equipment, lube, heels, make-up, and so much more!

Aside from sexual items, they also have thousands of regular, everyday items that you can add to your wishlist. Sometimes fans prefer to spoil you with something that you can use in your everyday life, outside of work. Amazon also allows you to add email-delivered gift cards to your wishlist.

Gift Cards Are Great Too

If one of your fans wants to let you pick out an item yourself, they can buy you an Amazon gift card for any amount they want. It will go right to your email and you can apply the balance to your Amazon account. If you’re selling custom content, tangible goods, or even Skype shows, your customer can also use Amazon gift cards to pay for that service if you allow them to. This is a good option because it completely eliminates the chance of a chargeback.

Besides the thousands of items that you can add to your wishlist through Amazon directly, they also have a universal wishlist button that you can add to the top of your browser. When installed, it allows you to easily add items from any website to your Amazon wishlist.

Careful With Your Lists

There have been some reports of adult models getting their Amazon wishlists shut down. This is a rare occurrence, so you’ll be fine as long as you’re careful. Just make sure you don’t put any links to your adult content in your wishlist description.

A Major Flaw

There is one major flaw with Amazon as far as security goes, but I’ll tell you how to avoid it. When you add items to your Amazon wishlist, your address is not shared with the person who is buying you the item, but it is of course given to whoever is shipping the item. When you go into your wishlist settings, you can choose to accept or decline Amazon’s third-party shipping agreement.

If you choose to decline it, you can only add items that ship from Amazon directly to your wishlist. If you choose to accept it, third-party merchants (ones that are not Amazon themselves) will have access to your shipping address when you add items sold from them to your wishlist and a fan purchases them.

Get A P.O. Box For Privacy

This isn’t a problem in most cases, and any issue with it can be completely resolved if you have a PO Box as your address. But if you’re using your personal address, and a problem arises with shipping, that merchant will most likely contact the fan who purchased you the item, and in their correspondences, may unknowingly reveal your address to that fan. So just be cautious of this when choosing whether to allow shipments only from Amazon or from third-party merchants as well.

Consider Delivery Code

The second wishlist site is Delivery Code. They are completely adult-friendly, so you never have to worry about your wishlist getting shut down. They are secure, so your personal information will never be revealed to the buyer.

DeliveryCode allows you to easily add items from any website to your wishlist. One issue I’ve noticed with DeliveryCode is that they charge a small fee when your fan purchases an item, as well as a shipping charge… even if you’re in the United States.

Generally, I’ve noticed the shipping charge to be between $9.99 and $19.99. Some fans don’t mind paying the extra money in order to get you exactly what you want, but with Amazon having such a wide variety of items themselves, and many of those items having free shipping, sometimes DeliveryCode is not the best option.

Aside from gifts off your wishlist, your fans can also send you money through DeliveryCode. You can choose to use your money to buy yourself something off your wishlist, or have the money deposited directly into your bank account. They just added this option today, actually!

Other List Options

Other sites such as FreeOnes and Cam Soda offer wishlists as well. These wishlists feature only adult items, but there is a wide variety of items to choose from. These wishlists aren’t as popular as Amazon or DeliveryCode, but it doesn’t hurt to advertise them on your social media accounts if there’s something on them that you like.

Show Appreciation

When your fans purchase you something off of your wishlist, make sure you thank them. Unless they put a custom message on the gift that lets you know who it’s from, you aren’t going to know unless they personally tell you.

If you aren’t sure who bought you a gift, post a few pictures of yourself using the item on social media. Say how excited you are to have received it and ask who got it for you. Showing your appreciation and spoiling the fans that spoil you will help you get more items off of your wishlist.

Conclusion: Setup A Wishlist Today!

If you’re a cam girl and you do not have a wishlist, then you’re definitely losing out on tons of free goodies and money. There are fans who will buy purses, heels, super expensive things, even diamonds. Take advantage of this and get what you want, don’t be shy at all!

Avoiding Payment Scams On Webcam

​If you’ve been a webcam model for long enough, you’ve probably encountered someone trying to scam you. In fact, even if you’ve just gotten started, you may have had someone try to scam you. Since they know that you’re new to camming, they assume that you’re more likely to fall for their scam.​ Many models can tell you horror stories of a scam or two that they’ve fallen for in the past. Some are worse than others. But if you fall for one, no matter what the degree, you’re gonna feel frustrated and upset. So to help prevent these scams, I’m gonna go over some of the most common ones that you may encounter during your camming career.

avoid webcam payment scams

Avoiding Webcam Scams

The majority of scams that you’ll encounter while on cam involve the scam artist getting you to do something for free, even though you think that they’re paying you to do it. The first thing that I want to say is that you should always follow your gut feeling. If something doesn’t feel right, that’s probably because it isn’t.

Although these scam artists are usually very good at what they do, there’s always gonna be something there that doesn’t feel quite right or just seems off. If you sense that at all, look into it before giving anything away for free. There’s no harm in protecting yourself.

No Pay, No Play…

Even if someone promises to pay you, you should never perform a show or give out your content before getting paid. If they say that they don’t know if they can trust you, direct them to a site that has an escrow system. Extralunchmoney and Mygirlfund are examples.

Both of these sites allow the member to create an escrow that holds the credits in limbo until you deliver the product. Once delivered, the member gets tiny screenshots of the content, and they can either approve or deny the escrow. That way it’s fair for everyone involved and no one has to worry about the other person not following through.

avoiding payment scams

Adult Pay Platforms Only

Never let people pay you via non-adult-friendly payment providers. PayPal is a perfect example of a payment provider that is not adult-friendly. You may think it’s a good idea to use PayPal because you keep 100%, but it’s definitely not worth the risk.

First off, your account will get shut down immediately if they find out you’re using it for adult services. Your funds will be held for months before you can withdraw them and you’ll never be able to have another PayPal account under your name again. Secondly, the customer could do what’s called a chargeback.

And if they do, you cannot protest it since you weren’t allowed to use it for your adult activities in the first place. If a customer files a chargeback with their bank, the bank will cancel the payment that they made to you via PayPal and you won’t get paid.

You’ll be asked to provide proof of what you offered in exchange for the PayPal money. And again, since it was an adult service, you won’t be able to provide that proof and you’ll have lost out on that money.

Lookout For Fake Emails

Another way people are scamming cam models is with fake emails. They design the emails to look like they’re coming from a company that you trust such as Amazon or Giftrocket, but really they aren’t.

Instead, they’re just fake emails designed to look like that, but don’t actually have any money attached to them that you can redeem. If you get something that you’re unsure of, make sure the funds go into your account before you do the cam show or before giving them your content in return.

Fake AF Models

The final thing is fake cam models and admins. Some guys will pretend to be another cam model in order to get your trust. They’ll do this to get to know more about you, or even to get free access to your private content. This happens a lot on Snapchat. You’ll think you’re adding a fellow cam model when really it’s just a guy pretending to be a girl in order to add models for free. Before accepting anyone, do your research. Find the specific model’s real camming account or Twitter account and DM them to see if that’s really them.

Things like this happen while streaming live on cam as well. You may get someone in your chat room that’s pretending to be an admin. They may ask you for certain private information. Never give anything like that out! A reputable company would never contact you in your chat room while you’re on cam. And there are always ways set in place to know which accounts are actually admins or not.

Cam Model Code Of Conduct

As with any job, there is a code of conduct that should be followed as a cam model. Even though you’re your own boss and can technically run your business however you want, it’s still important to hold yourself to certain standards that the cam model community finds acceptable. This will give you a good reputation among other cam models and your fans. Even if you plan on remaining a solo model, having a good relationship with the cam model community is incredibly important. You don’t want your name attached to articles or comments on cam model forums that are negative. Besides the possibility of your fans reading these comments and getting a bad taste in their mouth for you, it can cause unnecessary drama that no one wants to deal with. And you’re screwing yourself over if you ever do decide you want to broaden your horizons and try to work with other girls.

cam model code of conduct

Webcam Model Code of Conduct

The first thing that you should never do is bash another working webcam model. Besides being incredibly rude, it’s also hurtful and considered bullying. And aside from that, it makes you look very insecure about yourself and your own abilities as a cam model. If you have a personal issue with another model, keep it between the two of you. Even if they’re antagonizing you, be the bigger person. Either ignore them, block them, or reply via DM instead of in public on social media or in your web cam room. And be mature about your responses.

Simply explain the issue you have with them, why you have it, and move on. If they can’t seem to understand it, that’s their own problem. Don’t worry yourself over petty drama. In the long run, they’re just gonna make themselves look like an immature baby, and you’re gonna come out the winner.

Sometimes it may not be a personal issue, you just might not like another cam model’s style or something that they do. Remember that they’re running their own business just like you are. Let them do it the way they want. It’s not your position to critique their way of doing things just because it’s not how you do things. Mind your own business and focus on ways to improve your own shows.

Dealing With Fans

So that’s a little bit about how you should interact with other cam models, but let’s go into who you’ll be dealing with on a daily basis: your fans. The way you treat your fans can really make or break you as a cam model. If you want respect from them, you need to give them respect as well. I’m not saying you 100% of the time have to be nice to everyone. Let’s face it, you’re gonna encounter trolls along the way.

But the way you deal with them is what’s important. I know it can sometimes be hard to simply block someone without telling them off first, but you should remember that this is what they want. They want to rile you up and get a reaction from you. If you do feel the need to say something to them before blocking them, just keep your cool. Keep in mind that you’re live on cam.

Everything you do maybe being recorded by someone. If you freak out on someone and that video gets posted on the internet later, it could be embarrassing or make you look bad. It may have been better if you kept your composure and thought about your response before freaking out.

No Begging For Anything

I see a lot of cam models beg for tips all day long while on cam. This is not the way you should be doing things. If it’s ok for you to beg, then who’s to say your fans shouldn’t be beggars too. Instead of begging for tips, occasionally let your fans know about things you’re selling or special promotions you’re currently running.

If you’re genuinely enjoying your time on cam and actively interacting with your fans, they’ll be more inclined to purchase stuff from you than if you’re just constantly begging. When they see you begging for tips, it makes them wonder why you’re so desperate to make a sale.

Maybe they think your quality of content will suck or that you’re trying to rip them off. Although it can sometimes be tough, you just need to be patient and hang out like usual instead of constantly begging for tips.

If you can follow these basic guidelines, you’re definitely on the road to success. Remember that everything you do just might be being recorded, so compose yourself in a way that you want to be remembered by.

Getting The Right Look For Cam Shows

There’s a misconception that models in general need to be perfect or flawless looking. This couldn’t be further from the truth. However, it is important that you have the right look for your shows. Today, I’ll be covering what I believe to be the most important things to consider with regards to looks for your cam shows. ​

Don’t get nervous or scared, trust me, you can do this no matter what you look like. Sure, looks do matter, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder…right?!

Getting The Cam Girl Look

Getting The Right Model Look: Easy Tips For Cam Girls

When you think of a model, you probably picture women who are tall, thin, with long flowing hair, perfect skin, perfect teeth, perfect everything! The good thing about being a cam model is that you don’t have to live up to those impossible standards in order to be successful. Trust me, I am not super tall nor do I look like a runway model.

Cam models come in all shapes, sizes, and styles. No matter what you look like, there will be plenty of guys who are into you. But with that said, your appearance is still an important part of your job. If you feel confident, it’ll show through in your cam shows. You’ll be much more successful if you feel good about yourself.

Be Comfortable

You should always do whatever makes you feel comfortable. If you like to grow out your pubic hair, then grow it out. Don’t let a fuckboy or a troll come into your room and pressure you to shave it. Whatever makes you feel the best about yourself, is exactly what you should do. It is important to look put together.

Brush and style your hair before getting on cam. There may be a day here and there where you don’t have the time to make your look complete, but the majority of the time you should look neat. Your fans don’t want to see you looking like a hot mess. 😛

Makeup Makes Things Better

Camming makeup is different than everyday makeup. It can be much more fun! You don’t want to overdo it, but you really can play around with bold looks on cam and still not look ridiculous.

If it’s your first time on cam or if you want to experiment with a look, put your makeup on while watching yourself on cam.

Don’t actually stream your cam, but just have it run on your computer so you can see what different looks will look like. You’ll often find that you look different on cam then you do in real life.

Makeup that might make you look like a cheap hooker (more covered in the Q&A page on that topic), could look really pretty, bold, and interesting on cam.

Video Tutorial

I suggest checking out this video tutorial if you’re looking for some more specific tips for creating your look via makeup application.

Try Things But Do What Works

You’re of course free to change up your look at any time, but most models will find a look that works for them and stick to it.

You might throw some of your fans off if you start camming with black hair, thick black eyeliner, dark red lipstick, and pale skin and then show up on cam the next day with bleach blonde hair and a spray tan.

You have to remember that your fans first started watching you because they liked your look. When they’re browsing through models, that’s the first thing that they notice… your look, not your personality.

Your great personality is of course what makes them stick around, but they were originally drawn to you because they liked your style.

Body Maintenance

Maintaining your body hair is also important. Although some cam models choose to skip shaving and grow everything out, most at least keep their legs and underarms smooth.

It can definitely feel like a chore sometimes, but it’s something you really should maintain. It’s completely up to you which method of hair removal you choose: shaving, waxing, or laser hair removal.

All have their pros and cons. Shaving can be tedious and you may end up with irritated skin or red bumps from ingrown hairs. Waxing can be painful and may also irritate your skin, making it look red or blotchy.

Laser hair removal can also be painful if you have sensitive skin. The treatments can also add up, and sometimes not work for your hair type. Find a method that works for you and take your time with it so you don’t end up irritating your skin.

Conclusion: Get The Look, Then Get Paid More

If you’re looking to get paid and get these cam whales off, then you need to get the look down. Use these tips that I’ve provided above and trust me, you will earn big money. Take your look, style, and physical appearance seriously and you’ll for sure prosper as a model.

Pro tip: Add the makeup to your Amazon Wishlist and you can easily get consumers to buy the makeup for you! Probably the best takeaway from this entire article!

ManyVids Review & FAQ Gets Answered

Okay, today I’m going to cover one of those sites that every cam girl needs to know about. ManyVids is a crazy popular site that just about every single cam girl who’s made a lot of money has used over the years. Today, after reading this article, you should be able to assess whether or not adopting the platform into your revenue stream wheelhouse makes sense. As I said, I’m seasoned and know what works and what doesn’t. Before reaching out to me with additional questions about Manyvids.com, please read the article in full. I tried to cover it all!

Manyvids Review & FAQ

My ManyVids Review & Answers To Frequently Asked Questions

ManyVids is a website where you can sell your videos, pictures, tangible goods, and other adult products. 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 59/60, with an average score of 9.83. They excelled in every category.

How Much Experience (Time) Do You Have Using The Site?

I’ve been on ManyVids for years, many, many years in fact.

Features – 10/10

ManyVids offers models so many great and useful features! The main one is of course selling your premade videos. Videos must be under 2 GB in size, which is larger than many sites allow.

This means you won’t have to break your video into smaller sections or compromise quality. They also let you upload multiple videos at one time, and come back to edit and publish them at a later time.

You set all of your own prices for each video you upload, can upload your own preview and cover picture, put your video on sale whenever you want, and select up to 5 categories for each video. You can also sell memberships for 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months.

When someone purchases a membership, they get unlimited access to all of your videos that you included in your membership plan, plus all-new videos added during the duration of their membership.

Selling Custom Clips

You can also sell custom videos, Skype shows, your phone number, and texting through different apps from your profile page. All of these services are super easy to set up from your Services page. Once set up, they will automatically show up for purchase on the left-hand side of your profile.

You can also host your own contest through the Services page. Another service is called Fund Me. You can start a Fund Me campaign for anything you want: a trip, new equipment, anything! Like with the rest of the site, you keep 60% of everything you raise. You can also mention a “big donation” amount which, when tipped that amount or higher, you can offer your fan a special gift.

When you create your ManyVids account, you automatically have access to setting up your own storefront. This is a separate tab from your videos where you can sell anything you want! Models use their store to sell panties and other tangible goods, access to their Snapchat, photosets, gamer tags, video/photo bundles, autographed photos, used toys, and more. You can also use it to run raffles and have every purchase of a certain item count as an entry into your raffle.

ManyVids frequently hosts contests with large cash prizes. The last one they hosted had a cash prize to the top 3 girls of $3,333 each along with 3 runner-up prizes of $333 each. Not only are these contests great ways to earn extra cash, but they also get all girls who participate more exposure.

manyvids review & FAQ

Profits & Traffic – 10/10

ManyVids currently has over 439,000 registered members. They are one of the fastest-growing adult clip sites in the industry right now. A really cool and unique feature that they offer their models is the ability to search out buyers yourself.

If you visit the Members page, you can view the daily top spenders on the site as well as filter all members by ethnicity, location, if they’re a custom video buyer, store shopper, top reviewer, premium member, or Skype show buyer. You can use this to your advantage by searching out members who purchase items that you offer and get in contact with them.

Lots Of Profit To Be Made

I’ve found ManyVids to be one of the most profitable adult clip/store sites out there. Not only do I sell my premade videos daily, but I also sell memberships (which gives the buyer access to all of your videos that you chose to include in your membership plan) fairly often, custom videos several times a week, at least one Skype shows a week, and occasionally items from my store.

You keep 60% of all your gross revenue on the site. Although that isn’t the highest percentage in the adult industry, the traffic more than makes up for it. They also handle all chargebacks themselves, so you don’t have to worry about getting scammed.

Ease Of Using & Navigating The Site – 10/10

ManyVids is incredibly easy to use and navigate through. They do a great job making everything easy to find on both the models and buyer ends.

Payments & Cashouts – 10/10

ManyVids offers several different payout options. US checks are free to issue and the minimum payout is $100. They generally take 5-7 days to arrive. Payoneer is also free, but the minimum payout is only $50.

ACH bank transfer is only available in the United States. It is free to cash out and has a minimum payout of $150.

A wire transfer in the US or Canada costs $15 and has a minimum payout of $250. An international wire transfer costs $25 and also has a minimum payout of $250.

Privacy Protection & Geo-Blocking – 9/10

ManyVids offers easy to implement regional blocking. The only reason I gave them a 9 in this category instead of a perfect score is that they limit the number of regions and countries you can block.

They allow you to block up to 3 regions (states or provinces) and up to 3 countries. This limit is more than sufficient for most and won’t be a problem for the majority of models.

Aside from regional blocking, you can also block specific users from viewing your profile and contacting you.

As far as privacy protection and keeping your personal information secure, ManyVids is on top of their game. They’ve never had an issue with a model’s personal information being released.

If you have any concerns about other people logging into your account, they have that handled as well. You can choose to enable 2-step verification to your account.

What this means is that every time you go to sign in, you’ll have to enter both your password and a security code that’s generated by your mobile phone.

Customer Service & Support – 10/10

ManyVids has excellent customer service and support. Not only do they quickly respond to any questions you submit, but they also have an extensive FAQ page that will answer pretty much any question you may have about the site.

Many of the models on the site are also willing to help you out if you have something you’re confused about. ManyVids can be a great way to make new friends in the industry.

Conclusion: ManyVids Is Worth Trying

Overall ManyVids is a great site and should be used by all models to earn extra revenue. As soon as you start uploading your videos and products, you’ll notice the sales rolling in. Getting started on the site is simple and only takes a few minutes. It’s definitely a site worth checking out!

Discovering Your Niche

Have you ever heard someone say, “There are riches in niches?” It’s a common saying in business and it’s more applicable today more than ever before. ​That holds especially true for camming. New niche cam sites and chatrooms are popping up daily. I’ll be sharing information on why I feel there are riches in these niches and what they can do for you and your bank account. Most importantly, I’ll help you find and define your niche.

Find And Profit From Your Camming Niche

Not all cam models have to have a specific niche, but it’s never a bad idea to have something specific that you’re known for.​ If you’ve browsed any porn sites recently, you may have noticed that there are LOTS of different things guys are into.

There’s pretty much a fetish for anything and everything. With that said, it can sometimes be tricky to narrow down your specific niche since there are so many different ones out there. So let me help you out. 🙂

Factors To Focus On

I Found It

Your niche can be based on several different factors: what you’re personally into, something based on your looks or the kind of body shape you have, something based on your personality, age, or even just the person you want to be while on cam.

Even though I said there’s a fetish out there for pretty much everything, you do want to pick something that sells well in general and that you can personally sell well. There are a few ways to check and see what’s popular and what’s not.

The very first place I check and that I recommend other models check is Pornhub. You’ll find a list of all the categories and tags there. Look for lots of views and lots of tags. The more volume the better!

Should I Test ‘Em Out?

When first getting started and becoming a cam model, it’s a good idea to experiment with different niches. Make lots of different streams and record different videos with different themes and see what sells best.

Or maybe make your decision based on what you get asked to do the most often on cam. When I first got started, I had no guidance and really had no idea what I was doing. I eventually found out through requests while camming, what my niche should be.

So now I focus a lot of my content on daddy/daughter stuff, schoolgirl, age play, etc. I found that my young look and petite body shape really played a factor in why guys choose to watch me. The majority of them have some kind of teen fetish, so I rolled with it and have been successful.

What About Non-Nude?

Despite popular belief, not all cam models have to be nude models. There are successful models out there who have never shown any nudity on camera before. Their niche is the art of tease and/or entertainment.

Trust me on this, they really let their personality shine through on cam and usually do unique shows that really captivate the audience. Maybe that’s your thing. Some models are very dominant and love to have sissy boys bow down to their every command.

Even More Niches

there's more

Or maybe you enjoy teasing guys and forcing them to pay you for the hope that they might get to see something special from you or just to get your attention for a little bit.

Maybe you have ginormous boobs and you use those to your advantage. As long as you’re happy, enjoy what you’re doing, and can make a living doing it, why not?

It’s Nothing Permanent

Nothing Permenant

With all of this said, many models will branch out outside of their specific niche from time to time… especially in custom videos. Being versatile is also important. Even if you mostly focus on one or a couple of things, your fans might like to see something different on occasion.

So maybe throw them for a loop and put something different out there from time to time to spice things up and show them that you can be good at lots of different things.

Conclusion: Niche It Out

If you’re not trying to niche it out from time to time as a model, then you’re likely leaving money on the table. Don’t leave any options out as long as it’s legal and something you can handle and really do well.

If you’re at the very beginning and just stepping into things, then you’ll want to take a look at a few articles listed below before diving into your niche decision making. Start with these below first, then start picking.

How To Be A Successful Non-Nude Cam Model

Non Nude Webcam Models

Although it’s a fact that most cam models show nudity at some point in their career, there are also plenty of non-nude cam models out there. I’ll let you know right now that it can be a struggle to succeed as a non-nude model, but it’s most definitely possible. As I’ve mentioned in previous articles, the most important thing is that you’re comfortable with what you’re doing. If you’re doing something that you’re not comfortable with or that you just can’t get yourself into, it’s gonna show in your performance. And there’s nothing that’ll turn a guy off more than watching you do anything on cam when it’s obvious you aren’t actually enjoying it.

It’s definitely harder to become a successful non-nude model than it is a nude model. Although many guys truly enjoy chatting and interacting with you as a person, most also enjoy it even more when you’re naked. 😛 But although you may struggle at the beginning of your career, things will start to get much easier for you as you go on. You’ll start to develop relationships with your fans. You’ll start to notice regulars coming into your room every day to hang out with you. These are really the people that will help you succeed as a non-nude model. Some days, especially when you’re first starting out, you might not have a lot of fans in your room. This can be frustrating when you see a nude model with hundreds of guys watching her. But you have to stay positive. Don’t give into the pressure and do something that you aren’t comfortable with. Stand up for your morals and for what you believe in. If you’re truly enjoying what you’re doing, the fans will come and turn into regulars for you.

Many models who decide to remain non-nude, take on some kind of niche. One of the most popular ones right now is femdom. This is basically where you, as a female, take on a dominant role. There are some models who are femdoms who will eventually show nudity to their most loyal followers, but many never do. Their followers get off on being told what to do by a dominant female. And if they do what you say like a good little boy, there are plenty of other ways to reward them then by showing them your nude body. Although I personally don’t focus on femdom, I have dabbled in it at a few points in my career. I’ve found that some guys are really into NOT seeing you naked. They simply love the tease. These kinds of guys will lose interest in you once they see you naked. These obviously aren’t the majority of guys out there, but you will definitely find some. And they can be the most loyal followers of all sometimes.

So besides going down a route like femdom, some non-nude models are simply there for chatting and friendship. Many guys who frequent cam sites are looking to chat with a beautiful model… someone that they’d maybe be too intimidated to talk to in real life. Even for me, as a nude model, I’ve found that my biggest fans prefer my shows where I just tease, tell stories, talk about what I did that day, and similar stuff to that. I found these guys without even being non-nude. If you put it out there through your show descriptions, video titles, and keywords that you’re a non-nude model, you’ll attract these kinds of guys easily.

I know that I’ve said this in multiple articles, but no matter what you’re doing or showing on cam, your personality is really what attracts the most amount of people. Your personality and overall attitude is also what makes your fans want to come visit you over and over again. So whether you get naked or not on cam, it’s important to have a positive attitude and just be friendly to everyone.
