Getting Started And Becoming A Cam Model

I cover a lot of things related to camming and streaming live. However, many models just don’t know where to start. This article covers some of the basics to help you understand what’s needed to get started.

Getting Started Being A Webcam Model

These steps are in order, so best to follow the order. Read through everything then take action…

What To Do First

So you want to be a cam model? Now that you’ve made that decision, it’s time to get yourself all set up. If you don’t already have high-speed internet, it’s time to upgrade. Your internet speed plays a big factor in your ranking on almost every cam site. To test your current internet speed, run a speed test at www.speedtest.net.

The main thing you’re gonna want to look at is your upload speed. If it’s below 1.0 Mbps, you’re gonna want to upgrade to something faster. This will not only make your cam stream run smoothly but will also reduce the delay in your chat room when interacting with fans.

Next Step

The next step is getting a laptop or desktop computer that can run the software needed to cam. Every cam site has its own software, and there’s even additional webcam software that you can download from the internet.

Some are more advanced than others and require a faster computer. If your computer remains near 100% CPU or lags when running your camming software, it may be time to upgrade. A computer with an i7 processor (or its equivalent) and 3 GB of RAM or more is recommended for optimal performance.

If possible, it’s also a good idea to use a wired connection. It’s usually faster, and much more reliable than going wireless. To set up a wired connection, you just connect your computer to your modem or router using an ethernet cable.

Next Up – The Webcam

We can’t forget about the webcam itself! Even if you have a newer laptop with a built-in camera, you aren’t going to get the quality that you get with an external webcam. Aside from that, it’s nice to be able to pick up and move your camera around for some shows.

There are two webcams that every established cam model will recommend. The first is the Logitech C920. You can pick one up on Amazon for around $70-$75. It’s a great camera that shoots in full 1080p HD. If you’re looking for a camera with some extra features, the Logitech BCC950 Conference Cam is a great option.

This camera also shoots in full 1080p HD. One of the perks of this camera is the remote control that it comes with. With the remote, you can move your camera in all directions and zoom in and out without having to physically move your whole camera.

It has a noise-canceling microphone built into it, so your fans will be able to hear you loud and clear even if you’re moving around, dancing, far away, etc. This cam is a bit more expensive though. On Amazon, it will run you around $200.

The Lighting Comes Next

So you’ve done all the upgrades, but your cam stream is still looking dark or grainy. Good lighting can make all the difference! Natural lighting is great if you’re camming during the day, but professional lighting works just as well… day or night!

You can find inexpensive, professional webcam lighting on Amazon. There are some decent ones on there for around $50. When positioning your lights, you’ll want to place your light sources in front of you, behind your webcam.

This way it’ll light up your face and make you look vibrant. You may need to adjust the height or position of your lights to prevent glare, especially if you wear glasses. But with just a little tinkering, you’ll be able to get it just right. Never use fluorescent lighting! You may think it’ll work well because of how bright it can be, but it’s very unflattering on cam.

Well, those are the basics! Now you are ready to select a webcam site to work on.

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!

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.

Pornstars On Camsoda (List of Models)

Over the years I’ve made it very clear that most models are willing to help each other out. That’s the beauty of working in this industry. So many girls are open to giving tips, feedback, pointers, and just all-around great advice. That’s basically how I learned everything that I know along with some of the trial-by-fire approaches that I took. There is one cam platform though that seems to have always gone above and beyond for models. Additionally, the girls camming on this site have been more helpful than just about anywhere. I’m talking about Camsoda. Today I’m here to share with you a list of all the pornstars on Camsoda and why you might consider reaching out to a few of them for advice.

Pornstars on Camsoda

List Of Pornstars On Camsoda.com

Now, if you’re looking for reasons to hit up some of these girls just like you’ve hit me up, then I can give you a thousand, but I won’t. Instead, I will share some of the main reasons why models on Camsoda are just more knowledgeable than those using other platforms.

They have a great support system. If you’re a model looking to win, the Camsoda team is there to support you. I think that initial help is a feel-good that cannot be replaced. This makes many if not all of the models want to help others.

They provide tools to succeed. When it comes to technology and tools for making money, this platform takes the cake. This is probably the main driving factor as to why models stream here and not elsewhere.

They stay up with social media and trends. What I like about Cam Soda is that they keep you up to date with trends and what’s happening on social media. If you’re a model, then this is definitely important. Not only does it help you understand what to talk about, but it also helps you cash in on some of the hottest trends that models may miss the boat on if they’re not connected socially.

Last but not least, here is my list of pornstars and popular models on Camsoda who are worth reaching out to for advice.

Tube Sites To Check For Pirated Content

As cam girls, we all know how important it is to predict our content. It’s disheartening how so many people try and take advantage of our content. They believe that it’s okay to upload and share our shows and that couldn’t be further from the truth. Do you know who’s responsible for this? For the most part, it’s those tube sites out there!

Tubes you say? Yes, the free tube sites are 100% responsible for this.

I’ve done quite a bit of homework and my experience over the years has made it quite easy for me to sniff our tubes that you need to watch out for. That’s exactly what I’m sharing with you today. While you likely cannot eliminate pirated content entirely, you can try and fight it by focusing on things and taking an 80/20 rule approach.

Some tubes are known for being what I refer to as “pirate punks” and I’m officially calling them out here today. Here’s who you need to worry most about when it comes to stolen cam show content.

Porn Tube Sites To Check For Stolen Content

Tube Sites To Check For Your Stolen Content

Again, this is not the full list, but just those that I would focus my efforts on removing the content. I came up with this list based on a couple of things.

The first was popularity, the second was traffic, the third was stolen content and the fourth was the ability to profit from the site.

But before I get into that let me explain why people steal your content. This is really simple, they’re looking to earn a profit via serving ads. The more content they have on their site, the more likely users are to surf the website.

So, they’re sacrificing you and your earnings for their own. Now that we know what and why they are doing this, here’s what you need to be on the lookout for.

Pornhub

What should you worry about with Pornhub? Well, to be quite honest, Pornhub.com has been known for allowing pirated content to exist on their site for years.

They recently got in big trouble with Visa and Mastercard for allowing content that might be deemed as illegal. That said, you’re going to want to keep a close eye on this company and the content that they publish.

Spankbang

The Spankbang.com website is full of illegal content. I’m talking thousands of videos. You will want to check this tube site daily if you can.

This will definitely be a site you want to keep your eye on. Trust me, they can let things slip through the cracks at times.

XVideos

This is probably the biggest porn tube site on the web. It’s literally ranked #5 or something like that in terms of traffic overall on the Internet.

That might not mean much to you, but trust me, they are massive. Now, being massive might mean you can get in front of a lot of consumers, but pirates and uploaders looking to profit on your content is all over the place here. Keep a close eye on things.

Beeg

The person that runs Beeg.com doesn’t typically post cam girl content, but at times it does show up here. Knowing that they’ve broken the rules from time to time gives me enough reason to want to check them out for my content. You should do the same as well.

PornTrex

Okay, so nothing good comes out of having your content on Porntrex. In fact, once it’s on the site, it can be a real bitch to get anything down.

They are pirates through and through. You will have a hell of a time removing content because of the location. Nevertheless, you should know about it and be on the lookout for things.

Motherless

The Motherless tube site has been called out by many companies for hosting pirated content. Keep a close eye on this site and if you find any content of yours you can report it to them as well as Google.

How To Check For Your Content

So, there are a few ways to check for your content on these sites. You can start by going to each site and typing your name into the search bars of the site. Any content that exists that deliberately displays you and your content will pop up right away.

Another way you can check is using search engines by doing the following search:

“site:domain.com your name”

For example, searching pornhub for Viking Barbie, a famous Instagram model, will look like this. It’s a rinse and repeat approach per site to find the content that’s yours.

Searching For Your Content

Conclusion: Keep An Eye On Tube Sites

If you value your content and the way you earn a living, then you should take this seriously. I’ve sent DMCAs to all the tube sites listed above, and most of the time that’s all that is needed. Good luck and don’t hesitate to reach out for more info. If you come across a tube site I missed, please send me the name to look into it!

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 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.

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!

Selling Webcam Content: Tips On How To Sell More!

As a cam model,  you’ve got a few really important roles and duties. Selling cam shows and getting consumers to consume your content is for sure the most important. However, so many models seem to have a tough time selling. Many of them just don’t know where to sell. In fact, many of them do not know where to start. That ends today! After reading this article, you should be able to confidently sell more private shows, premium media, and even tangible goods. You just need to know where to go. Time to learn…

Selling Webcam Content

Where To Sell Your Webcam Content

Before we even get started, I’d like to congratulate you on mastering the art of filming your first clip. In fact, take a second to just take that hand, pat yourself on the back and congratulate yourself for being a master of the universe.

Now that the hard part is over of filming and editing your clip, it’s time to answer the million-dollar question.

Where the F*&!$ Do I sell them?

There are going to be a lot of sites that will pop up in your peripherals, and it can be hard to figure out which site to choose. My best advice to you? Try them all out. Worst case, you don’t do well on all the sites, but you find one that works and that you like using.

Best case? You sell a million clips, become an overnight sensation, and can go sailing through Ibiza while collecting your hundreds of thousands in passive income. Now, if you’re not trying to sell media at Camsoda, then you’re failing as a model – simple as that.

They’re Not Equals

Keep in mind while reading this that not all clip sites are created equal. Should I say it again? Not. All. Clip sites. Are. Created. Equal. (Just wanted to make sure that you really understand this before you upload all your clips and wonder why they aren’t selling.)

There will be times where one of your clips is selling phenomenally but another one tanks. It doesn’t mean it’s a bad clip. It just means that sites traffic leans towards one type of style over another.

(Side Note: Please make sure to always read everything including the contracts and the TOS before signing up to any website. It is SO important to protect yourself and your content.)

Selling Clips

Before we get into the nitty-gritty, it’s important to note that you can and should sell your clips while you’re online. I highly recommend this because it’s easy and it’s extra money. If you decide to sell this way, you’re going to need a good hosting site. Right out of the gate, I’m going to let you know that most video hosting sites are not adult-friendly, so always make sure you’re reading the Terms of Service before signing up.

ALWAYS.

A free hosting site for your videos is ProjectMaenad. It is in beta, but works wonderfully and is run by a former cam model. You can create links to send out clips, make them password-protected, limited/number of downloads, and you can also create a public profile page for yourself. It’s easy to use, and support is very helpful and efficient.

At the moment, ProjectMaenad is not able to process payments, so if you use this site make sure you have an alternate payment option available. It’s also important to note that this site does not have its own traffic, so if you’re using it to sell videos you will have to market, market, market.

As far as actual “stores” you can sell your videos in, I’m going to be focusing on the two main sites that are well known, have a great reputation, and have the ability to make you a nice chunk of passive income if you work it right.

The two sites that, in my opinion, are the most well known are: Manyvids.com and Clips4Sale

Manyvids

Let’s start with Manyvids. That’s the site that I use, and I love it. It’s completely free to sign up and is so user-friendly. Literally, all you need to do is go to their site and there will be a button that asks you if you’d like to sign up to be “An MV Girl.” (The answer is YESSS! Do it!)

One of the coolest aspects of ManyVids is that they run a continuous contest for the top 20 MV Girls every month. Basically, if you’re in the top 20 of sales, then you get a bonus. First place takes home $1200! They also run special contests for Valentine’s Day, etc. that are a fun way to get guys voting for you and promote your store at the same time.

Manyvids is definitely more of a social platform than some of the other clip sites that you will run into. In my experience, the more that you interact with the members and the other models, the better you will do. That means such things as; liking profiles, leaving comments, messaging back and forth with the guys. Treat it like social media and start building those bridges, baby.

Skype, Snapchat & Tangibles

Along with uploading and selling videos, you can also sell Skype Shows, Snapchat/KIK, Custom Videos, and create an entire storefront of tangible goods. (Bras, Panties, “pay for my dinner”.. you get the idea.)

The Payout percentage is 60/40, with you taking home the 60%, and they payout twice a month on the 1st and the 16th.

Clips4Sales

Now onto Clips4Sale. I don’t have much personal experience with Clips4sale, so for research purposes as well as keeping my honor in tact while I dish out this advice, I’m going to sign up for the site right now and we can learn together.

It seems, from other model experiences, that this site does extremely well with fetish clips. If you take a look at the studios and what they offer, there is everything from sneezing clips to brushing your hair. (Thank God we all have a reason to keep the camera running now. Sick doesn’t mean NO pay! Holla’!)

Clips4Sale differs from Manyvids, in the fact that it gives you the ability to upload clips in multiple ways which maximizes the number of views that it will receive. You can have a Clip Store, DVD Store, Image Store, and a Membership Site all under the same name. In order to start uploading you will need to have 10 clips, and for images, you will need to have 5 zip files with 20 images minimum in each.

One cool feature is that they have an email list, where you can add customers who would like to be on it and blast them with mass emails. Seems like this would be a great way to get independent shows, custom vids or let them know about upcoming things and generate sales.

The Payout Percentage is 60/40 or 75/25 depending on what type of store it is, and payouts are sent on the 7th of each month for the month prior. Both ManyVids and Clips4Sale have their own traffic, which is a HUGE plus. Add that to the traffic you can bring if you market it correctly across your social media and you’ll be sailing in Ibiza in no time. (Ibiza trip not guaranteed, results may vary.) Are you interested in selling more tangible goods? like panties etc? That’s always a great additional revenue stream.

How To Become A Phone Sex Operator

Cam girls often take on many other jobs as alternative income streams. One of those jobs is a phone sex operator. Is this common? You better believe it! In fact, some models are actually more successful as phone sex operators than they are streaming live. If you’re interested in chatting with consumers to make some cold hard cash fast, then keep reading. I’ve covered all the ins and outs of this below. Oh, full disclosure, I too am earning good money weekly from calls with consumers.

How To Become A Phone Sex Operator

Anyone who’s interested in making money should be interested in becoming a phone sex operator. These are the people that you call when you’re in the mood for some live, one on one action.

The real draw of it for most people is that it’s only your voice that has to have its game on. It’s not like camming where you have to show your entire body to the audience.

It’s all about what you say and how you say it. It can take some of the worries out of ending up naked online forever and you don’t even have to get dressed (or undressed) for it.

Phone Sex Operator Jobs: What You Need To Get Started

You really don’t need a whole lot to get yourself started in the phone sex world. In fact, you don’t even need a certain set of genitals. Phone sex is open to men, women, and everything in between. The only things you’ll need are identification and a phone, that’s it.

You need an ID to prove your age before you can start talking to people. There isn’t a single company out there that wants to get in trouble for having underage models on their phone lines. It has to be government-issued and it has to have your birth date and a picture on it.

Once you choose the company that’s right for you, it will be kept on file with them. Other than that, you really just need a good reception for your phone. If you don’t get great service indoors, then there are a few different signal boosters out there that you can try.

You want your calls to be crystal clear and you never want them to drop out. Getting all of that squared away is your first step.

How Much Money You Can Make

There’s really no one answer to how much money you can pull in from being a phone sex operator. There are many different types of phone sex to be had and how much your chosen company is going to pay you for them.

The first way to make money is simply by talking. This is where you’re usually going to be making the most money. Talking on the phone is going to make you money by the minute.

The longer you talk, the more you make. It doesn’t really matter what you’re talking about. If someone is on the line with you, you’re making money.

The next form of income comes from texting. I know what you’re thinking, how can it be more lucrative than posting as a model on Reddit, but I promise you it most definitely is! More and more phone sex companies are offering texting options now. They’re the easiest thing to do, but they’re also the least lucrative. You’re only getting paid by the message here.

If you’re talking to someone on and off for several hours, but only sending a few messages then you’re not going to be making enough money to make it worth your while. Most women who do this are only doing it when they’re not camming or talking on the phone and not as a primary source of income.

Finally, We Get To Talk About Subscriptions…

These are a great way to make money with your phone. There are lots of different services that you can get involved with. People pay you a monthly subscription fee and you give them photos or videos in return.

You can do it at your own pace, but the more you send out, the more subscribers you can get. It’s a great option because you can’t have a bad day. You know how much money you can expect and all you have to do is keep up your end of the bargain.

How To Start

The steps to getting yourself going here are pretty much always the same. You can sign up for a hundred different platforms or you can sign up for one. The steps you have to take to get going are going to be the same.

Choose a name – Your first order of business is to choose your name. You don’t want to use your real name and you don’t want to use something that sounds like a screen name. Just think about it from the callers’ perspective.

They’re not going to want to call someone that they have to address as BootyBl4tsr30569. It’s not sexy at all. What you want to do is think in the way of stripper names. Something like Susie, Amber, or Vixen is going to be much easier for them to swallow.

ID and phone – Now that you have your name chosen, it’s time to work on your ID and your phone. Create an account on the site of your choice and upload your identification.

It’s usually going to take a few days for you to get approved from here. Once that’s done and you know your phone is up to the challenge, it’s time to move on.

Create a profile – Now that you’re on the site, you want to create your profile. This is where you want to put in a lot of effort. Men and women are going to be choosing to pay you based on your profile. It has to be good and it has to be alluring.

Make sure you let them know everything that you’re willing to do. Give them a reason to call you instead of the other girls that they see. Make it inviting and upload a sexy photo to go along with it. It’s the first thing people see and you want it to make an impression.

I also encourage you to share the news of these services with your fan club if you have one. If you don’t have one, then you should start one immediately! I know more things to do…

Start playing – After that, you’re off and running. Now it’s just a matter of actually having the phone sex that you’ve signed up to provide. It’s’ going to be awkward and embarrassing at first, but just stick with it.

Having phone sex with a total stranger is nothing like having phone sex with a boyfriend or girlfriend. It’s not intimate and it’s not for your enjoyment. It’s a job for you and what the buyer wants is all that matters. Follow their cues and you’ll be well on your way.

Phone Sexting Companies & Jobs

What about phone sexting? Is this an option as well? You bet your ass it’s an option! There are TONS of phone sexting companies out there that will help you learn and then eventually earn. You need to know that it’s in their best interest to profit here as well.

Conclusion: Make Money As A Phone Sex Operator

See, getting started in the phone sex world is pretty easy. Perhaps even too easy. However, it’s one thing that you should definitely think about doing sooner rather than later. You can expect to make thousands of dollars if you’re a dirty talking pro with an attractive voice. Don’t waste your talent, go for it!
