Naked.com Review

Naked.com is a live cam site that features mainly female models, but also has some boy/girl couple accounts. Below I rate them in several different categories, giving them a score in each category out of 10. Out of 60 possible points, I gave them 58/60, with an average score of 9.66. They excelled in every category, only losing a couple points for not offering payments by check and not having geo-blocking when they list contest results.

How Much Experience Do You Have With The Site?
I’ve never cammed on Naked, but I do have a model account on there that I used to test the site out and get a feel for everything.

Features 10/10:
Naked.com has so many great and easy to use features! The first is their built-in broadcast programs. They have both a standard (non-HD) broadcaster and a HD broadcaster (called the iModel Application). Both are easy to use, but it is highly recommended that you stream in HD. Your video and audio quality will be greatly improved if you do. The standard broadcaster is browser-based and the iModel Application is desktop based, meaning you have to download and install it on your computer.

You can offer several different kinds of shows to your fans on naked.com. If a fan wants to do a one-on-one show with you, they can take you private. The default rate for a Private Show is $4.99/minute, but you can adjust your price if you choose to. In a Private Show, other members of the site can join as a Spy Show. Your Spy Show rate is automatically calculated for you, and is $2 less than your private rate per minute. If someone is spying on your Private Show, they will pay per minute and only be able to watch the show. They will not be able to hear anything or chat with you in any way. You can also do a Tip Show. For a Tip Show, you set a goal you want to reach, how long until you want to reach it, and how much each fan has to tip into the show in order to watch it. If you meet your goal (or get close enough that you want to start) in the allotted time period, you will be taken into a private show. Only your fans who tipped into the show will be able to watch. Even after a Tip Show has started, fans who haven’t tipped in yet are able to tip and join.

Aside from live cam shows, you can also sell videos, tangible goods, and other services on your profile. If you upload videos to the site, they’ll be listed for sale on your profile. You choose all of your own prices. You can also sell panties, used toys, Snapchat access, pretty much anything you can think of! If you are selling other goods and services, you can only accept payment on Naked.com. Asking a customer to pay you through any other method is against the rules.

Another great feature that’s offered on naked.com is DMCA takedowns. If you notice your videos on clip sites or anywhere on the internet without your permission, you can contact the support staff at naked.com and they will help you get it removed. This is a feature that can really add up and take a lot of time if you’re doing it on your own. Naked.com helps make it easy for you.

Profits & Traffic 10/10:
On naked.com, models keep 50% of all the money they generate on the site. That means you keep 50% of all the money you earn in tips, private shows, spy shows, tip shows, and video sales. As with any cam site, what you put into your shows and how dedicated you are to your job, helps to determine how much you’ll make. Some of the top models on the site are earning hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, with the top girl earning over half a million dollars last year! Naked.com generates a lot of quality traffic, and their numbers keep growing! The site has grown exponentially since their launch, and they do a great job advertising the site to continue to increase traffic, thus increasing profits for the models! They have a Twitter account with over 39K followers. If you tag them in a tweet, they will retweet it for you. They also do shout-outs pretty frequently.

As I mentioned in the features section, there are other ways you can earn money on the site besides from doing live cam shows. You can sell your videos, sell tangible goods, and offer other services such as Snapchat access. You can even list your Amazon wishlist on your profile so fans can spoil you with items!

Naked.com also has a daily contest for models to win extra cash! Every day they award $1000 to the top 5 models who earn the most on the site. $500 for first place, $250 for second, $125 for third, $75 for fourth, and $50 for fifth place.

Ease Of Using & Navigating The Site 10/10:
I found naked.com to be incredibly easy to navigate through. The model dashboard and all of the links are very self-explanatory and easy to figure out. Without much effort, you’ll be able to navigate the site and figure out where everything is. Both the standard and the HD broadcasters are also easy to setup and configure.

Payments & Cashouts 9/10:
Naked.com offers several different payout options for you to choose from. The first way is a CMB paycard. This is the fastest payment method. You can cashout as often as you like, even every day if you choose to. This is for US models only and the minimum payout is $35. A fee of $4.95 is deducted every time you load your card. The next way to cashout is through a direct bank deposit with Dwolla. Weekly payments are sent directly to your bank account through Dwolla. Again this is for US customers only. The minimum payout is $2, and there is a $1 fee per transfer. The pay period for this method runs from Monday-Sunday and they deposit funds to you the following Friday. You can also cashout using Payoneer by either direct deposit through them or a Payoneer paycard. For direct bank deposit through Payoneer, there is a minimum payout of $20 and fees range from $2.99 to $9.99 per transaction. This option is offered for all models, even international. The pay period for this method runs from Monday-Sunday and they deposit funds to you the following Friday. You can also have your weekly payments put on a new or existing Payoneer paycard. This method is offered globally and there is a $20 minimum payout. The pay period for this method runs from Monday-Sunday and they deposit funds to you the following Friday. Naked.com does not offer their own direct deposit (but both Payoneer and Dwolla do) or mailed checks.

Privacy Protection & Geo-Blocking 9/10:
You can rest assured that your identity will be protected on Naked.com. Privacy protection is very important to them, and your personal information will never be given out to anyone. If you’re concerned about people you know seeing your live cam shows, naked.com offers regional blocking on the site. You can block individual US states from viewing your profile, as well as entire non-US countries. If you have a region blocked, no one from there will be able to view your profile, live cam shows, pictures, or videos you sell on the site. Contest results are the only thing that will display your username regardless of geo-blocking.

Customer Service & Support 10/10:
The customer service and support team at Naked.com is great! You can contact them at any time if you have a question or if you’re having an issue on the site. They have 24/7 phone and email support, and always get back to you quickly. Their support staff is very knowledgable and will help you with anything you’re having trouble with. They also have a very indepth Wiki page and a Model FAQ page. If you have a question about a feature on the site, you will most likely be able to find the answer on there.

Overview:
Overall naked.com is a very well put together live cam site with many great features to help you succeed. They have a very good website address that generates lots of organic traffic, aside from the traffic each model brings in from advertising. The site is set up in a way that makes it easy to use for both you and your fans. I’m excited to watch them grow!

Is Myfreecams A Good Site For New Cam Models?

If you’re new to the world of camming, Myfreecams might not be the best site for you to start out on. This isn’t saying that it won’t work for some new models, but overall it makes more sense to get the hang of camming on another site before moving to MFC.

Is Myfreecams a good webcam site for beginners?

You’re free to make your own decision of course, but here are some of the reasons why I think MFC is a good choice for beginners:

When you first start out on Myfreecams, you get a “new model” tag. This will increase your traffic when you first start. Unfortunately, the tag only lasts for the first 10 hours of streaming. If you don’t get your camscore up to a decent level in those first 10 hours, you’ll notice a drastic drop in your traffic the first time you log on without your new model tag. At that point, it could take months of camming to get your score up to a level where you’ll start noticing decent, consistent traffic in your room.

Your camscore on Myfreecams determines your placement on the site, and it is hard to maintain and keep at a high enough level to keep a good-sized group of members in your room. When determining your placement, MFC only takes into consideration your camscore, nothing else. Your camscore is based on the number of tokens you earn over a certain period of time. On many other camming sites, your ranking on the site is not based on how much money you earn.

Instead, it’s based on the quality of your equipment and stream, the amount of time you spend on cam, and the number of good ratings you get. When you first start off camming, especially on a site like MFC where most shows happen in public chat, it’s hard to build up a fan base… especially in your first 10 hours. For many new models, you’re still trying to figure out how everything works on the site for at least the first few hours.

On MFC, models make much more money when they have other things to sell besides just their live cam shows: videos, pictures, customs, Snapchat, phone numbers, panties… just to mention a few. When you first start out, you’re more than likely not going to have those things ready to sell. Again, especially not in the first 10 hours of camming, which is the crucial point to raise your camscore. As a new model, you also probably won’t have a large, dedicated social media following yet either. It is definitely an advantage to already have fans who you know will support you when you first start off on a site like MFC.

It makes much more sense to start off on a site like Streamate for at least the first few months of camming. Streamate does not rank you on the amount of money you earn. Instead, your rank is determined by the factors I mentioned before (quality of your equipment and stream, the amount of time you spend on cam, and the number of good ratings you get). It doesn’t matter if you hardly make any money your first few hours on cam, your rank will still increase the longer you spend streaming, if you have HD equipment, and if you have a fast internet connection. This means you can take as long as you need to learn the ropes, get comfortable camming, build a following, and work on other items to sell (videos, pictures, etc.).

Another thing about your camscore on Myfreecams, is that you have to remain consistent if you want to keep your camscore at a certain level or have it increase. Having just a couple of slow days, or even hours when you’re new can really lower your score and drastically drop your rank. To keep things interesting and fun for fans, most models on MFC play games. But when you’re a new model still trying to figure out how the site works, it can be very difficult to juggle everything at once. Between chatting, performing, entertaining, figuring out games, putting everything together correctly, and just being nervous, it’s almost an impossible task to handle everything when you’re just getting started.

There are no do-overs on Myfreecams. Once you create your account, that is the account you’re stuck with. So if you mess up in your first several hours of camming, you cannot delete it and create a new account to start fresh with the new model tag again. You may have to spend months of camming to increase your camscore to a level that earns you enough money to make this your full-time job.

I don’t want this to seem like I’m bashing MFC, because that is not the case at all! Myfreecams is one of the top cam sites out there. They have many great features and host some of the top-grossing cam models. They just might not be right for a new model to jump into until she learns the ropes elsewhere.

Extralunchmoney Review

Ready for some Extra Lunch Money?

Extralunchmoney, or ELM, is a website where you can sell many different adult services. You can sell premade content, custom content, tangible goods, cam shows, your Snapchat, your phone number, pretty much anything you can think of! 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 51/60, with an average score of 8.5. They excelled in all categories except regional blocking.

How Much Experience Do You Have With The Site?
I’ve been on Extralunchmoney for a little over 3 years.

Features 9/10:
Extralunchmoney has a lot of great features, which is why it’s one of my favorite sites to work on! Scoping out the Requests page is on my daily “to do” list. Buyers list different custom content they’re looking for, and you can choose to accept the request if it’s something you’re interested in. Besides listing the details of the request, the buyer lists how much they’re willing to pay for it. Sometimes they’ll mention in the description whether or not the credits are negotiable. If they don’t mention anything like that, I will sometimes still say I can do the request. Then if they contact me and are interested in me doing it, I just say that I was hoping the credits could be negotiable and tell them my price along with why it’s worth it for them to pay extra for the quality I can offer.

On ELM, you’re able to list pretty much anything you want for sale: premade videos and pictures, custom content, panties and other tangible goods, Skype shows, Snapchat, etc! The possibilities are endless! You are able to set all of your own prices, up to 200 credits for products and jobs. Once approved, you can choose to have your product automatically tweeted out so your fans on social media know that you just listed a new product. When members of ELM are searching on the site, they will easily be able to find your items by using filters when they’re searching for what they want.

Once you have a product listed, you can put it on sale. You can offer only a certain number of that item for the sale price, or make it unlimited. This comes in handy for teaser videos and pictures. You can list them as 1 credit and then put them on sale for 1 credit off. Aside from that item being listed on the Photos page, it’s now also listed on the Sales page, which customers frequent more often looking for good deals. Something that I do that earns me extra money is listing my Snapchat to be purchased for every specific month. And then come the 15th of the month, I put a 50% off sale on it. I get a lot of extra sign-ups when it’s half off, and many of those customers buy it again for months to come.

When working with a buyer on a custom request, it’s best to use the escrow system that ELM offers. The buyer starts the escrow for the amount you two agreed on, you deliver the product(s) through the escrow message, the buyer reviews it, and then approves the escrow once both parties are satisfied. This protects both you and the buyer from getting ripped off. And if the buyer takes an abnormally long time to approve the escrow, you are able to go in and approve it yourself. This should be used as a last resort only if the buyer comes unresponsive.

Similar to other adult phone sites, Extralunchmoney offers an anonymous, pay-per-text service. You connect your phone number through ELM and they use an anonymous number for both you and your customer so no one’s real phone number is ever given out. You set your own prices per text message received. SMS or picture messages also work with their service.

ELM also promotes your live cam shows if you’re a model on Myfreecams. They plan on promoting more cam sites in the future, but for now only girls on MFC are listed.

Profits & Traffic 9/10:
Extralunchmoney uses a credit system. When you first start off on the site, you keep 60% of everything you earn. So one credit is equivalent to $0.60. Once you start selling more products and get enough positive feedback to achieve Seller Plus status, you start to keep 65%, making one credit equal to $0.65. ELM was actually a cam model resource site before becoming what they are today. Because of this, they come up often in Google searches and get a high amount of traffic.

There are of course some freeloaders and cheapskates on the site, but for the most part the buyers on the site are quality buyers. Not only are they willing to negotiate and pay higher amounts for quality products, but many of them are return customers. Out of all the sites out there to sell custom content on, I make the most amount of sales from ELM, with ManyVids coming in second. If you follow everything that they want to see in the video or pictures, and deliver quality content, those buyers will come to you again and again.

Ease Of Using & Navigating The Site 8/10:
When you first look at Extralunchmoney, it can be a bit overwhelming. The site has a lot of different tabs that will take you awhile to get used to. It can be a bit time consuming at first, but once you take the time to explore the different sections of the site, you’ll get used to where everything is. Make sure you check out every section under the Seller tab. It has a lot of useful information and helps you keep everything you’re offering on the site organized.

Payments & Cashouts 10/10:
Extralunchmoney pays out once a week on Wednesday as long as your minimum payout balance is reached. You are paid for the amount made in the previous week, not the current week. They offer several different payout options: check by mail, ACH/bank tranfer, wire transfer, or Paxum. Once issued, check generally take 5-10 days to get delivered to your mailbox. ACH/bank transfers usually take 2-5 days to post, wire transfers take 1-2 days, and Paxum is immediate. Checks and ACH/bank transfers cost 5 credits per cashout, wire transfers are 20 credits if you’re in the United States or 40 credits for international transfers. Paxum has no extra cost associated with it thought ELM.

Checks, ACH/bank transfers, and Paxum all have a minimum payout of 40 credits. Wire transfers minimum payout is 55 credits in the United States or 105 credits internationally.

Privacy Protection & Geo-Blocking 5/10:
This is the one category that Extralunchmoney lacks in. As far as keeping your real name, address, phone number, and that kind of information secure, they excell. But if you’re concerned about regional blocking, ELM might not be for you. They do not offer any form of regional blocking. This means that you aren’t able to block specific countries, states, zip codes, etc. from viewing your profile or content that you’re selling on the site. They do however allow you to block specific users, but that’s not nearly as effective as full regional blocking.

Customer Service & Support 10/10:
Extralunchmoney has great customer support. Whenever I’ve needed to contact them about something, they responded back in a timely manner and were very knowledgeable. They always helped me through any situation I was having trouble with.

Overview:
‚ÄčOverall Extralunchmoney is a great site for selling your adult services and products on! It is one of my personal favorites, and one of the most profitable sites I use. Their vast amount of features make it a good option for almost any amateur model.

Webcam Advertising

Webcam Studios Vs Direct Signup

If you surf around the internet trying to find a good webcam company to signup with, you can often be running across many different recruiter style sites. Sometimes these sites are owned by the company, other times they are owned by recruiters or studios. These are important differences to understand as your commission structure often will vary when you are not signing up directly. When you join via a webcam studio, you need to understand that your payment is being paid to the studio directly, they then take their commission out and pay you after. For Example, if you earn $1000 your first week on webcam, depending on the % deal with your studio, you may only be entitled to $500 of that. You are almost always better off going direct and cutting out studios completely.

ChatStar Review

My review on Chatstar

ChatStar provides models a secure way for their fans to sext and call them. 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 excelled in their overall features, navigation, payouts, and customer service.

How Much Experience Do You Have With The Site?
I’ve been on ChatStar for about 9 months.

Features 9/10:
ChatStar allows models to communicate with their fans via phone calls, SMS (text messages) and MMS (sending/receiving pics/vids via text messages). Your actual phone number is never revealed to your fans. Instead they use a forwarding system so your real phone number is kept private.

You’re able to decide what services you want to offer and what you want your rate to be for each service. You can set up your own pricing for the initial purchase of your phone number, price per minute for phone calls, the price for a fan to text you per message, the price for when you text a fan back per message, when your fan sends you a MMS, and when you send them a MMS.

ChatStar has done some marketing research and found out that if you set your phone number rate to free (for the initial purchase of your phone number), you’re more likely to get fans in your network, which increases your chances of converting fans into paid fans! They still pay your normal per message or per minute rate, but they don’t have to pay for the initial purchase of your number. If you set your phone number to free, you also get a “Get My # For Free” badge on your profile picture. Fans are more likely to view your profile when they see that badge.

Profits & Traffic 6/10:
If you take the time to advertise on your social media accounts that you use ChatStar, the earning potential can be great! ChatStar’s own social media accounts have been inactive for a while now, so don’t expect a shout-out from them. Whatever traffic you get will either come from you doing the work yourself by blasting it on social media (the main way) or from organic site traffic, which isn’t the best in the sexting/adult phone call market.

To increase your profits, check out some of the prices that other models have set. If you set yours too high, customers are gonna move on to the next girl who has cheaper pricing, but offers the same kinds of things you do.

Ease Of Using & Navigating The Site 10/10:
The site is incredibly easy to use and navigate. They make everything very simple for you to find, and do a good job explaining everything. The few tabs that they have are very self-explanatory and to the point. On just six different pages, you can navigate through everything you need.

Payments & Cashouts 10/10:
You keep 60% on the site and payments are sent out weekly, every Thursday. Pay periods are from Monday to Sunday which are paid out on the following Thursday. They provide you with a transaction list so you can see the fan that’s paying you, what the payout amount is per interaction, and the time of the interaction. They also have an Earnings History page which breaks down your payments by week.

Privacy Protection & Geo-Blocking 4/10:
From everything I’ve seen on the site, they do not offer any form of regional blocking. This may be a problem for some models who want to block a certain state or country from being able to find out their profession.

From different comments I’ve seen on various forums, some models are skeptical about the sign-up process due to privacy issues. When you sign-up for ChatStar, you put in a very minimal amount of information. After signing-up, a representative from the site will email you asking for the rest of your information (ID, headshot, social media accounts, etc.). This isn’t the best practice, since it may seem sketchy to some. But I personally haven’t had any problems, and my account was set up without any personal info getting leaked. I’ve also never heard any models who are actually on the site complain.

As far as your actual phone number goes, that is protected by ChatStar. They use anonymous proxy numbers in order to relay communication between you and your fans. One VERY important thing you need to check if you are accepting phone calls is your voicemail message. Make sure your voicemail does NOT mention your phone number! If you miss a call from a ChatStar customer and they’re taken to your voicemail, you don’t want them to hear your actual phone number.

Customer Service & Support 10/10:
When you first sign-up, not only do they quickly contact you via email with general information about the site, but they also set you up with some promotional graphics. They’ll usually pull a couple pictures from your Instagram, and jazz them up a bit with the ChatStar logo and the link to your profile page.

Overview:
ChatStar is a decent site overall as long as you’re willing to work for it. Like I mentioned earlier, the organic traffic that they generate could be better, so the majority of your fans are going to come from you directing them there. The services they offer are great though if you’re looking to get into sexting and/or adult phone calls. They make it quick and easy for you to get started on the site.

Please do not copy my site!

Thanks,

Sarah
